Welcome to brow week! I am super into brow products and this week I am going to review three exciting brow pomades that I’ve been testing the last few months: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade, NYX Tame And Frame Brow Pomade and Benefit’s Ka-Brow! These three products have been on my radar for a while and I was so excited to try and review them for you. Today’s review will focus on the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade. Wednesday the spotlight will be on NYX Tame and Frame brow pomade and I will conclude brow week with Benefit’s Ka-Brow on Friday.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade
Product: If you don’t know about Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade then I really don’t know where you have been! This award-winning brow pomade is probably the most sought-after brow product and famous for those sculpted ‘Instagram brows’ we all secretly admire.
Packaging: The Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade oozes pure luxury with its gorgeous black and gold packaging and heavy glass jar. You only need to hold it in your hand to know that this ain’t no ordinary product.
Formula: This pomade has a smudge- and waterproof formula. At a glance it might look like the texture is waxy when in fact it is soft, creamy and easy to apply. Eventhough it has such a creamy formula it dries very quickly to a natural, matte finish.
Pigmentation: The Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade is extremely pigmented, to the point where I got a proper fright the first time I used it! So bear this in mind, especially with shade selection.
Application: It is an absolute breeze and delight to apply this brow pomade. I use an angle brush to apply the product and it gives you sharp and very precise lines. The product glides easily onto the skin and it really takes no effort at all to create the most perfect brow.
Wear: In my experience the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade dries down quickly and then it is pretty much set for the whole day. It does not fade or come off and your brows will look as perfect at the end of the day as when you applied it in the morning. Although it is waterproof it is not difficult to remove at all.
Shades: There are currently 11 shades available in this range. I purchased medium brown, but because of the intense pigmentation I find the color to be ever so slightly too dark for me. I think soft brown would have been a better choice and I am going to order the lighter color especially now that my hair is a bit lighter in summer. so take care when you do your shade selection.

Price: R420/€30, although it is a tiny bit pricey it is worth every cent in my opinion.
Stockists: The Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade is readily available through department stores in the EU and one can also order from Sephora, Douglas, Cult Beauty etc. In South Africa Muse Beauty stocks this product at a very reasonable price and from what I could see have a generous selection of shades available.

What did I think? I LOVED this product. Everytime I use it I marvel all over again at the sheer brilliance of this pomade. I can completely understand why it won awards and beauty lovers and makeup artists are so obsessed with it. I have previously tried numerous times with multiple brow pomades to get that well-defined, perfectly sculpted Instagram brows but could not recreate it until I used this product. It is very difficult to explain, but the absolute precision it glides with onto the skin is truly remarkable and something to experience for yourself. I don’t often wear such a perfect, precisely defined brow as I prefer more natural-looking eyebrows, but it sure is nice to know that I can create the look if I ever wanted or needed to. In my opinion this is the best, most amazing, mind-blowing brow pomade I have ever used and I seriously doubt there will ever be a true dupe for this product.
Will I buy this product again? Absolutely! I think if there is one product to try and get your hands on, this is it. Do yourself a favor and put this gem on your list. I can assure you that you will never regret this purchase.
