e.l.f.Instant Lift Brow Pencil (Review)

I’ve been impressed with e.l.f. Cosmetics in the past. It’s some of the lowest priced makeup on the market, but the line consistently releases on-trend products. The e.l.f. Instant Lift Brow pencil is more of a “staple” product. Brow pencils are a go-to for me, […]

I do my eyebrows almost every day, even when I’m wearing minimal makeup. I have moderately full brows, but I like to define them with a pencil or pomade, and I love the look of feathery full brows that you can get with a gel. […]

A Guide to Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Products

A Guide to Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Products

I adore Anastasia Beverly Hills; their highlighters and eyeshadows are some of the best I’ve ever tried. But Anastasia Beverly Hills is best known for its brow products. ABH is the reigning makeup brand for brows, in part because it was the first brand to offer a wide-range of brow specific products in every color. I have tried many ABH brow products, and as a devotee to the line I can offer a guide to Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Products. 

Brow Definer: The Brow Definer is so easy to use; the unique twist-up applicator has a long, thin pencil head. This may sound odd at first, but it is perfect for creating brush-like strokes and defining the brow. It’s my favorite brow product, period. The cream-to-powder formula also makes it very bendable, so by running the spoolie through the brow you can blend any thick lines to imitate real hair.

Brow Wiz: Another ABH classic, the Brow Wiz is a reigning brow pencil. It has the same cream-to-powder formula as the Brow Definer, so it is super bendable. The tiny retractable pencil draws fine lines, so you can create a detailed and natural looking brow. This is a great product, I just find that I can do my brows more quickly with the Brow Definer. Also, if you press to hard on your Brow Wiz you can break it, so don’t get too carried away while drawing on your arches.

Dipbrow Pomade: This is the most unique Anastasia brow product. The Dipbrow Pomade is a thick pomade; it has a waxier feel than the brow pencils. However, it is perfect for creating a really bold brow. It can be blended with a spoolie, but it doesn’t blend out as easily as pencil products. I like the Dipbrow for full-glam looks when I want my eyebrows to look as bold as the rest of my makeup. However, I find it takes me a long time to do my brows with the Dipbrow Pomade.

Brow Gel: The Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel is the superglue of brow gels. One swipe of this gel and your brows are locked in position all day long. One tube lasts for a long time (at least a year, I’d say), so it’s worth the investment.
