The art of eyebrows being on fleek has become a big trend in the makeup community and most people interested in perfecting it have no idea where to even begin.

The most difficult yet most rewarding part of my makeup routine has always been filling in my eyebrows. It has become a technique that many wish to perfect and some believe in order to achieve the perfect brow, certain brands of makeup are necessary.

Anastasia Beverly Hills is one of the most notorious makeup brands known for its eyebrow products and the big question is: Are these products worth their price?

My eyebrow routine has always been such a huge deal to me due to the fact that I personally feel as though my brow shape can change my entire appearance.
I’m not proud to admit that I can take up to thirty minutes perfecting my eyebrows, but it really is that serious to me, especially if I’m making an effort to wear a full face of makeup.

With that being said, I have used my fair share of eyebrow products throughout the years in order to find one that was perfect for me. I would fill in my eyebrows with brow powder for years and I only bought drugstore brands because I never felt as though high end products were any different, but as I began making a little more money, I figured I’d give them a shot. That’s how I figured out exactly which products were worthy of their popularity.

The very first ABH product I bought was the dip brow pomade, which has a creamy gel-like consistency and is extremely pigmented. It contains 0.14 ounces of product and retails for $18.

When I had first started using my pomade, I would wear it every single day and couldn’t believe how full my eyebrows looked. But I began to realize that my eyebrows looked really dark and intense, in fact they looked so intense that they overpowered my face and became the only thing anybody could notice when they looked at me.

I found that with the pomade it was always really easy for me to get heavy handed, often leaving me looking like I had filled them in with sharpie.
I have no problem with having bold eyebrows and that’s usually the way I go when filling them in but the dipbrow seems to be more suitable for circumstances where a lot of heavy makeup is being worn. It definitely requires a lot of practice in order to figure out how much product is enough to give its user their desired color payoff.

Another product by ABH is their perfect brow pencil, which is just a standard eyebrow pencil with a spoolie brush attached to the end of it. This pencil has .034 ounces of product and retails for $21.

Now I hadn’t even considered buying this product until my mom actually bought it and asked me to do her eyebrows with it. After feeling how smoothly this pencil was gliding onto her brows and making them look naturally perfect, I instantly fell in love with it.

It created the perfect arch with so much ease and the convenience of the attached spoolie brush was perfect for blending away the product on the inner corner of the eyebrows.

I had to try it for myself and the day I did was the last day I touched my dipbrow pomade. This pencil was a huge time saver and made my eyebrows look a lot more natural yet still allowed me to create the thick eyebrows I was fond of.

As I said before, the longest part of my entire makeup routine has always been my eyebrows, and when using the dipbrow I found that you have to use a very finely tipped angle brush to get the arch just right, which takes a lot of patience.

When using the perfect brow pencil, you have more control over the product, especially due to the fact that you can sharpen the pencil to your liking in order to get a thinner or thicker eyebrow look. This makes it a lot faster to get the job done. The spoolie brush also plays a big factor in making the final product look a lot more natural than the pomade can.

After using both products repeatedly I can say that they’re both good quality makeup items and can absolutely be worth their prices, depending on what the customer personally wants.

So if you’re somebody that tends to like statement eyebrows, wear full coverage makeup and usually rocks a bold lip color, I suggest you give the dipbrow pomade a try before the pencil.

But if you prefer a more natural look yet still want the option of occasionally being able to achieve a bold eyebrow look, the pencil is a more flexible product that can do both and is worth the slightly expensive price attached to it.

Everybody does their makeup differently and everybody certainly has their own preference when doing their eyebrows, which is what I think the Anastasia Beverly Hills brand kept in mind when making their products in order to have them capable of catering to a wide range of people.

Whether you’re barely starting to experiment with your eyebrows or you’re looking for a better product to take your brow game to the next level, I think this brand will have something for you.
