Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade in Medium Brown

I always lose my brows halfway through the day (not literally, they don't just up and run from my face haha). It always sucks if you have a particularly good brow day that morning, and by the afternoon it's like those perfect brows never existed and it's back to natural, sparse hair again. I decided enough was enough, and wanted to put my brows in their place once and for all! If you're an avid follower of any professional makeup artist, I'm pretty sure you would have seen this bad boy floating around one time or another. This is the infamous brow pomade by Anastasia Beverly Hills. 


I suppose at £15 this isn't the priciest brow product out there (brow zings, I'm looking at you), but still quite a price to pay for mere eyebrows. However - this is not just any old brow product. Oooh no no no. Let me explain. First of all, the little black and golden glass pot feels so luxurious and not at all flimsy - and let's face it, we all deserve a little luxury in our lives. Second of all, it claims to be smudge-proof, water-proof, sweat-proof... pretty much life-proof, which is what sold it for me. After googling various swatches online (the website ones aren't all that accurate), I decided to choose the shade Medium Brown, which is one of the three newer shades added to the original 5.


What I love about all the colours in this range is that none of them have that weird, orangey-brown tone that you sometimes see in cheaper alternatives. They're all relatively ashy toned, making much more flattering and natural-looking once applied! I was so so happy with the colour I chose as it turned out to be the perfect match for my brows - I really recommend having a quick google for swatches like I did before you buy, I would have ended up with the complete wrong colour otherwise. So, how did it apply?


Please excuse my naked eye/face, I really couldn't be bothered to do any other makeup having just woken up haha! This was my first attempt at filling my brows with the pomade, just following my natural brow shape and not doing anything crazy! The standout quality of this product is how little of it had to use to fill in my whole brow, in fact I ended up using a bit too much at first and looking like slugs had set up camp on my face! Whilst it's wet it's very easy to either remove or blend out so my slug issue was easily overcome, but don't let that fool you as once it's set, it's not going anywhere fast! I'll be putting that to the ultimate test when I go to Thorpe Park tomorrow! 

The possibilities don't just end at a natural, bushy brow with this. The most popular look people tend to go for is that super slick, ombre-looking brow that fades into a perfect point - which by the way, I'll definitely be trying out! So far, an A* for the Dipbrow Pomade, and no more runaway brows either! Winner.
