Anastasia of Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Swatches - Soft Brown, Caramel & Auburn

Hey everyone! Ruby here with swatches and a review on the Anastasia of Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in the shades Soft Brown, Caramel and Auburn. I first purchased Soft Brown because I thought it would be the same as their Brow Wiz in Soft Brown but oops it definitely isn't the same shade. So I ordered Caramel for myself and Auburn for Yvette to try out. Anyways it was really difficult to find swatches of the shade Caramel so I decided to do a review on the shades I purchased. I want to pick up Chocolate next but I will add that swatch in whenever I purchase it. Onto the review and swatches I hope you all enjoy!

The Brow Pomade's go for $18 and I bought all of mine at Sephora, gotta get them points girl! There are 11 shades available at Sephora. The Pomades are waterproof and long lasting. I did run them under the faucet and tried to smudge them but they stayed put! These pomades go on very creamy and you only need a little bit to get them opaque. They set rather quickly so definitely work with it a little at a time. Once they set they are there to stay, until you decide to take it off! I am so in love with these! They help cover up the sparse areas of my brow so naturally and effortlessly! Now onto the swatches!!



L to R: Soft Brown, Caramel & Auburn
With flash


Soft Brown: Ash brown almost taupe 

Caramel: Warm light brown. Reminds me of a light milk chocolate

Auburn: Reddish brown

Overview & Tips:
-Incredible pigmentation
- A little goes a long way
- Dries semi fast maybe about 30 seconds
- Super creamy
- Long lasting
- Somewhat hard to remove (could be because I applied 
such a thick amount for swatch)
- Very easy to blend
- Applying then combing it into the hair with a 
spoolie would give the best natural effect
- Seal lid tight and store upside down to avoid product drying out


Thank you so much for stopping by! If you want to see how these wear on my brows I will gladly take some photos! Or I can do an updated brow routine on our YouTube channel!
