If you’re sick to the gills of hearing “brow game strong” and “eyebrows on fleek” then you’re in good company. All I’m here to do is talk about good eyebrows without the infuriating lingo.

I’ve tried more eyebrow products than I care to think about it so naturally I had to try Anastasia Beverley Hills DipBrow Pomade. I’ve had mine for a while but have only recently been using it on a daily basis since I ran out of my Anastasia Brow Wiz (review here) and haven’t gotten round to replacing it.

In case you didn’t know, DipBrow is a waxy pomade in quite a dry and pliable texture. The best way to describe it would be like a chocolate bar that’s been sitting out in the sun, minus the mess. I bought mine along with the Anastasia Mini Duo Brush #7, which has an angled brush on one end and a spooly on the other.

The Anastasia colour ranges are almost too good – I put off buying this as I was unsure which colour would suit me best – it could have been Chocolate, Dark Brown or Ebony. In the end, I tracked down where I could see it in the flesh (Blow Ltd, if you’re in London) and settled on Dark Brown. The colour match is quite frankly, perfect, for my almost-black eyebrows.

A little bit of this stuff goes a very long way – be warned. The easiest way I find to use it is to lightly outline my eyebrows, extending the tail slightly then brushing the product though, from top to bottom. Because it’s got quite a dry texture, your brush doesn’t end up slipping all over the shop when outlining, giving you a decent amount of control. It takes a bit of practice but these days I can do my eyebrows with DipBrow in a couple of minutes.

The stand out feature for me is the longevity. I’ve put this on in the morning, gone to work, then gone out, gone to bed, woken up the next day, haven’t washed my face and gone to work again (don’t judge) and my eyebrows have stayed perfect when the rest of me was a mess. If there was a nuclear blast, all that would be left is cockroaches and eyebrows.

Personally, I absolutely love Anastasia DipBrow but I’m generally an eyebrows kind of person. If you are too, then I would highly recommend you get your little paws on a pot if you want that perfect look you see on Instagram. If you’re not that bothered about eyebrows then I don’t think it’s a necessity – you’d probably be better suited to the equally brilliant but user-friendly Anastasia Brow Wiz (review here).

A few tips should you choose to proceed:

  • DO use the Anastasia #7 or #12 brush. The angled side is VERY thin and relatively stiff, giving you all the control you need
  • DO dust your brows with powder before starting if you’ve got your base on – things will be less slippery
  • DON’T load up your brush with too much product

Anastasia DipBrow is available online at Cult Beauty and in store at Blow Ltd and costs £15.

      Same! I strayed away yesterday and my eyebrows literally ended up on my hands. I will never cheat again x

  • I’ve not ever tried the pomade, I have only ever used pencils. I should give it a go!

    • Bee

      Yes, if you’ve not tried any kind of brow wax before, DipBrow is a good place to start! x

  • I’ve wanted to get my hands on this product ever since it was released. It looks pretty damn wonderful.

      You should try it, I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed x

  • I’ve read some really great things about this eyebrow product and the Wiz pencil too! After reading this I feel like I definitely need to invest in some Anatasia brow products – I’m always late to try out much hyped about products x

      I think it’s actually better to hold off on hyped up products – if you still hear about them ages after release then you know they’re worth your hard earned cash x

  • Your brows looks amazing! I use the ABH brow palette, but I still want the Dipbrow Pomade. I’m just a bit confused about what shade I’d be – need to do some research I think.

      Thanks :) I’ve just seen you’re in London – get yourself down to Blow Ltd in Covent Garden, they’ve got all the shades so you can try them out in real life – a few of them are so similar you really need to try before you buy! x
