Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade
The hunt for the perfect brow “primper” led me to Anastasia BH Dip Brow Pomade. I got one in Ebony, the darkest shade among the bunch. I chose Ebony because I was trying not to make the same mistake I did when I got the MUFE aqua brow, which was get talked into getting the wrong color. Although I lost my MUFE aqua brow, I’ve used it long enough to see the differences in wear between the two brow products.
Well, the ABH Dip Brow pomade is longer lasting, there’s no doubt about that. Both products are very pigmented but the pomade’s formula is something else. It’s extremely creamy, very easy to spread across the brows and the result could be quite dramatic, especially when you apply with a heavy hand! So be careful, a little (and by that I mean use almost trace amount of the pomade only) goes a long way.
Unlike MUFE’s aqua brow which was fairly easy to put on, there’s a learning curve when it comes to applying the pomade. I’m still in the process of perfecting the technique.
So now the question is, how’s the wear time? Well, it certainly lasted longer than MUFE aqua brow (I have a bald spot on my left brow right above the arch so I use that as a way to gauge brow product longevity) but not by much. Probably a good couple of hours longer before it fades (ever so patchily). The longest I wore this one was the other day where I was out in seven hours and it is extremely humid here in PH, it’s the beginning of summer, after all. By the end of the day, the bald spot was showing through the patchy pigment but color hung around pretty tight for a while so yeah, it’s better thn MUFE and it’s a lot cheaper too.
Overall, this is a nice product. Pigmentation is out of this world good, texture is buttery soft and staying power is great too. Application may take a while to get used to but once you mastered it, this is a great everyday brow product to use!
