Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade has been talked about allllll over the beauty world for most of the last year, and I have been desperate to get on that bandwagon. It’s hailed as the holy grail of brow product by so many people, to create stunning bold brows. I agonised over choosing the right colour, since there are eight shades and one simply can’t have their brows the wrong colour. Morgan posted a comparison between Chocolate and Medium Brown on Hyacinth Girl and that sealed the deal for me. I selected medium brown and my stepsister brought it over to NZ for me, and I had it in my hands at long last.
The packaging seems such good quality – the black, gold and glass that the pomade is contained in makes the product feel luxurious. It’s probably not the best to travel with, but that’s not the end of the world to me. This is something I would want to have on display, not tucked away in a drawer. From what I can see online, Anastasia Beverly Hills always has beautifully packaged products.
A small angled brush is what is usually recommended to applying Dipbrow, so of course that’s what I have used. I’ll need to buy an additional one, as this one is usually reserved for gel eyeliner – how terrible, an excuse to do some shopping. I had been using ELF brow kit in light, so I’ve swatched it next to Dipbrow. I felt like the ELF gel was a touch too warm for me, and seeing it compared to the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade confirms what I thought. The ELF kit served me well but it was time to upgrade.
This is how it looks on me. At first I thought it was a bit too dark, but I blended it out and I think it suits me. I do have blonde highlights but even on people with naturally light hair their brows are typically darker than the hair on their head. I think it does a great job filling in the gaps towards the start of my brows that a pencil can’t quite achieve. I’m glad that I chose to buy my Dipbrow in Medium Brown, as opposed to Chocolate. In the weekend, I got caught in the rain and while my foundation looked like a bit of a mess my brows stayed put – if that’s not a good testimonial for this product, I don’t know what is.
Now, the important question – where can you buy Dipbrow?
Most of my readers are in NZ, so this information is most relevant to you. Of course it’s not available in stores here, so online is your only option. Sephora AU and Sephora NZ websites both stock Anastasia Beverly Hills which is exciting.
Now, I have a question for you readers. Do you have Dipbrow, and if so how long does a container last for you? It’s only 4g or 0.14oz which seems quite small but I suppose some days I’d stick to using powder on my brows for a more subtle look.
