Is the Anastasia DipBrow Pomade Right for Me?

Updated on June 12, 2016

I get asked all the time, "how do I know if the Anastasia DipBrow Pomade is right for me?" and I have to ask them many questions about their experience with makeup, how comfortable they are with an unforgiving product like the Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade and how much they know about the pomade. Then, I have to ask them about their hair and wether it is naturally that color or not and what kind of products they already use. Finally, I can tell them if they should get it and what color they should get.

Are You Experienced? Are You Ready To Splurge?

Now, if you have lots of experience with makeup, I want you to be really specific. What are you experienced in? If you have experience with doing your eyebrows, do you use a drugstore pomade like the Milani Stay Put Brow Color? Do you use a high end powder like the Urban Decay brow box? Or do you use a nice brow pencil like the Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil? Also are you willing to splurge some money on an eyebrow product or do you wanna keep it cheap? If you want to keep it cheap, I do not recommend this product as it is $18. If you want something cheaper, I would recommend going for the SalonPerfect Perfect Brow Pomade which is $4.88 or the Milani Stay Put Brow Color which is $6.15. If you're used to using brow pencils or powders, I recommend either sticking to what you use or trying one of the drugstore pomades first.

The Milani Stay Put Brow and the Anastasia DipBrow Pomade Side by Side

As you can see, the Anastasia DipBrow is really big compared to the Milani Stay Put Brow Color. With the DipBrow, you get more bang for your buck but, if you are just starting out using pomades I recommend the Milani Stay Put Brow Color.

What Color Should I Get?

This is another question I get asked a lot. There is 11 colors of the pomades, Blonde, Caramel, Taupe, Auburn, Soft Brown, Ash Brown, Chocolate, Dark Brown, Ebony, Granite, and Medium Brown. If you have golden or warm toned blonde hair, go with Blonde, if you have ash or cool toned blonde hair, go with Taupe. If you have light red hair, go with Caramel, if you have dark red hair, go with Auburn. If you have light brown hair with any undertones, go with Soft Brown. If you have gray hair with any undertones, go with Ash Brown. If you have gold or warm toned medium brown hair go with Chocolate, and if you have medium brown hair with cool or ash undertones, go with Medium Brown. If you have dark brown hair with warm undertones go with Dark Brown, if you have dark brown hair with cool undertones go with Ash Brown. If you have black hair with warm undertones go with Ebony, and if you have black hair with cool undertones, go with Granite. But here's the thing about makeup, there are no rules! If you have cool toned blonde hair but want to use Chocolate, go for it! I just recommend using the same undertones as your hair.

Here is a picture I took for a thumbnail for my Youtube video. I use the DipBrow pomade in Chocolate.

Do You Have The Right Tools?

I always ask everybody this question because the Anastasia DipBrow doesn't come with a brush so you have to have an angled brush to use this product. The cheapest angled brush you could get would be the E.L.F. Small Angled Brush which is $3.00. Of course, Anastasia Beverly Hills sells one with a spoolie on the end but it's $18. A spoolie is a great tool to shape your brows before you do them. You also need to have your eyebrows waxed/threaded/tweezed. It makes your eyebrows look a lot better. You also need a concealer. Again Anastasia makes a concealer in a jar but NYX Cosmetics has one that is $5.00, along with a flat concealer brush that E.L.F. makes for $3.00 called the Flat Eyeliner Brush but I would use it for concealer under the brows to clean them up. I use the E.L.F. Eye Defining Brush.
