I’ve purchased this dipbrow pomade twice now and it’s safe to say that I am obsessed! Although my first impressions were ‘wow that’s sort of small for £19’ – BUT trust me when I say it lasts for years!
I’m 1000% sure this pomade was made for me as I’ve tried many other brow products, such as powders and gels which either didn’t turn out properly, or it was too light for my brows. This pomade is soft, creamy and just the right shade for me – I use ‘soft brown’.
This pomade never fails to create natural-looking, defined brows which is exactly what I opt for when looking for brow products. If there was one product that I would take on holiday, it would definitely be my ABH dipbrow!
First of all, let’s all appreciate my healthy brown hair before I done all sorts of hair dyes to it. This pic on the left shows that my brows look almost effortless and defined at the same time. I’ve used the dipbrow here and backcombed the front part of my brow to give it that fleeky look that we all want!
I would definitely recommend this product, however the last pomade that I used for two years, was drying out – so I added TINY drops of oil to it and it worked perfectly, but I expected that to happen seen as I’ve used it for quite a while. I would give this product a good 4/5 just because the drying out was a bit irritating.
Now that you know how the product looks and feels like, it’s time we compare it to other brow products.
Pomade VS Powder
You’ve probably been in the brows section of a drugstore and picked up many gels, pencils, pomades throughout the years but you never find the ‘right one’. That’s because there are different brow products for different skin types. For example, for oily skin – powder products would be suitable as it absorbs into their skin. It makes your brow products stay for longer than it would without using powder. I would suggest researching further on to which powder suits you the best as it is fully dependent on how your skin works.
However, if you’re one of those people with sparse eyebrows, then this dipbrow pomade is the one for you!! The brush you use is also very important as you can go VERY wrong with a thick brow brush. I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills 12 dip brow brush (£18) and it is really thin and easy to work into. I would give this brush a 4/5 too. From personal experience, I’ve used powder products and it just wasn’t for me, the product would barely show and disappear within hours. Ever since I’ve used the dipbrow pomade, I haven’t found any better products! It never fails to create a natural-looking, defined brow look for me – which is perfect for every event that I go to, whether that’s a family gathering or for work.
A few years back I used the shade ‘medium brown’ and I soon realised it’s a bit too dark for my brows, so changed to ‘soft brown’ instead. Using darker brow products just made my makeup look too harsh and OTT which if you know me, I’m all about natural looks!
Research shows that your brow shade should be lighter than your hair colour. Also, sometimes not having an accurate guide on how to fill in your eyebrows can be difficult. This is why I recommend plucking/threading your brows before filling them in.
I’ve genuinely sworn by this ABH dipbrow pomade since secondary!! They transform my brows into looking more full and groomed. Using a precise angled brush alongside it is quite important too. I definitely think this is the ULTIMATE brow product for me, just because it doesn’t smudge or move throughout the day and night, and creates an amazing finishing touch to my everyday makeup.
Overall, the price is reasonable as it lasts for a while – but the product eventually dries out which is a turn off – but adding tiny drops of oil can solve this issue.
I also suggest that you use tiny amounts of the product on to the brush because a lot comes out of it. The pomade lasts me all day, so it’s also good for parties and weddings. At the end of the day, I usually wipe my pomade off with wipes and it does the job.
I’ve also used the dipbrow pomade in these pics. What do you guys think? The dipbrow is both suitable for events and motives with friends too.
Now, is it really worth it?
I haven’t had any break outs, allergic reactions etc with the pomade but I don’t think people with oily skin should give this a go IF they’re not willing to buy an efficient powder with it.
How long does the dipbrow pomade last?
All day. I usually use mine around 7am in the morning for college and it doesn’t budge until after I wipe it off in the evening.
Does the dipbrow have an expiration date?
YES! Around 6 months, however I used mine for over a year and it didn’t cause any problems to my skin.
