I change up my beauty products and methods every so often, and my brows are no exception. Since I’ve been growing them in over the past few months, I felt that my standard “brow-pen-followed-by-pencil” routine made my newly thicker brows look too harsh. Searching for an alternative method, I dug out my Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Waterproof Pomade in Blonde ($18) to give it another whirl. I bought this when it launched in late 2013 and used it only a handful of times. I don’t recall exactly why, but after a few wears, I just didn’t love it.
And now I’ve changed my mind. I find that this product looks more natural on my fuller brows. It’s a nice light shade (I’m blonde), and it’s long-wearing. It also adheres well to skin — key for areas where you’re missing hairs. It’s easy to mimic the look of individual hairs when using short strokes with a small angled brush. (Sidenote: My Mom got me the one pictured here years ago in a brush set from Costco, and I LOVE it! Seriously, Kirkland Signature brushes are good!) Since it’s a pomade it has a little hold, and I noticed that my MAC Brow Set tames my brows better when I apply it after Dipbrow. The main reason I like it so much right now is that it blends out naturally with a spoolie brush. This is key at the inner corners of my brows. I just like the effect better now that I’m working with fuller brows.
Have you tried Dipbrow? What do you think?
