Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Taupe Review


I know I'm late to the game, but I finally decided to ditch many years of Shu Uemura Hard Formula brow pencil and try Anastasia's dipbrow.

My eyebrows are probably the most neglected feature on my face. I have an oblong face where I carry a lot of chubs around my chin and jowl area, so if I go hardcore on the brows, it tends to make my face look masculine and.. umm... how should I say it, makes my features look thicker? 



Anyway, so I went ahead and got meself a dipbrow from Sephora the other day. I researched the colors and decided to go lighter than recommended. Most people seem to grab medium brown or dark brown, but I couldn't afford to have prominent brows - I  needed natural looking but well-defined brows. So Taupe it was!
Here's how it looks like out of the box in natural daylight. 
I was a little bummed about how the color was much darker than what I had anticipated. 



Swatched with a brush on the back of my hand. That's one stroke - with a tiny bit of product. 
The texture is nice and creamy, but not in a sticky or greasy way. I really like how it glided on so easily and evenly. 


Here's my bare brows. I have a childhood scar right above the arch of my right brow, making that area a bit bumpy. 
My brows fade towards the end, making it difficult to form a good foundation. But anywho, that's the 'before' look of the eyebrows.

And here's the 'after' look with browdip applied (+ foundation and eyeshadow base).
I like how it's light enough (?) so you can see the actual brow hair through the product. 
It looks pretty intense up close in the picture, but I think it's not as dramatic in real life.

Sorry about the out of focus, blurry selfie 🤔


This picture wasn't meant for the blog, but basically, you can see how the brows look from a wider angle (indoor, light coming in from left side of the picture). It's not overpowering my face at all. 




Application is super easy
I like to use an angled brush and dab a little bit of product on the back of my hand.  You'll need to wipe off any excess first and then build up the application to avoid patchiness or lumpiness in your brows.
I figured it's a bit easier to outline the tail part first and then reverse the stroke towards the front part to spread out the product.


Staying power is amazing
I get greasy and oily towards the end of the day, and my brows don't fade one bit. There's definitely no need to do any touch ups.


Final Thoughts
In all honesty, I don't think I have anything bad to say about this product.
The product quality is great, the application is easy, there's a wide array of color choices and the amount of product you get will definitely last you a long way.
Coming from Shu Uemura Hard Formula pencils, even the price worked out great for me (hard formula = $23, Browdip = $18). With the tiny amount needed per one day, I'm sure this bottle will last me a very long time.


I really like dipbrow!
Let me know if you guys have any tips or experience with the product.
