One item I have always wanted to get my hands on is the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade. With Sephora offering a discount for Disney Cast Members one weekend in June, I decided to take the plunge and get it. I can’t live without it now. No wonder so many people swear by it. At the start of the year, I tried the Brow Wiz and I liked it, but I didn’t love it.
One of the things I love about Sephora are the Beauty Experts; you can pop in, explain what you want, recommend different items and let you try them. Previously, I used the colour Caramel with the pencil because my hair lightened significantly. With going home, I knew that I would probably be getting it dyed either darker or cooler so I wanted a different shade with the Dipbrow Pomade. I bought the Medium Brown which is fairly dark but I love this on my brows. You can build it up to be darker or just use it to fill in. With my brows tinted, it’s pretty much a perfect match.
The first thing I noticed about the Anastasia brand was how much I loved the packaging. The Dipbrow Pomade comes in a glass pot and feels high end. It’s a pet hate of mine when you’re spending more-than-average on a luxurious product that feels cheap and naff. I just need to make sure I don’t drop it!
The formula itself is really pigmented and creamy. I was originally just using an angled brow brush until I lost mine travelling. I have been making do with a small eyeshadow brush for now. The medium brown Dipbrow Pomade is fairly dark though so don’t be mislead by the word ‘medium’. It dries quickly so I make lots of light strokes to build the colour and shape of my brows.
The staying power this product has is incredible. It doesn’t budge one bit, not even with the humidity in Florida and in the gym. I have had to take a bit of extra time on mhy brows with make-up remove but that’s not an issue for me. I’d rather have that then them melting off throughout the day.
Although a cult product with a bit of a price on it, I don’t think I’ll ever use a different brow product now. The Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade is definitely worth every penny for me. If you’re a little too anxious to jump straight in with a creme based product, I’d thoroughly recommend the Anastasia Brow Wiz for a softer look.
