Which eyebrow product is right for the look you want?
An invaluable skill that I’m trying to improve
Eyebrows have always been important for completing a makeup look, but thick statement brows really hit the scene a few years ago.
And a lot of people were going a bit overboard with them, or so I thought.
I’ve always preferred a quite natural looking brow, but I have such tiny eyebrows to begin with.
So I’ve been filling in my brows for years, but it really wasn’t until 2 years ago that I started to pay closer attention the shape and making them look a touch fuller.
Filling in and shaping brows can be an intimidating beauty step for some, so I wanted to compare 2 different eyebrow products today to show you what result you’ll get from both!
First up is Anastasia dipbrow pomade in blonde.
I loved this product. Prior to this I was using a L’Oreal brow kit (that I would still recommend) where I would press the brush into the wax, then pick up powder, and apply to my brows. I figured there had to be a product out there that combined the wax and the powder/color and in fact the Anastasia brow pomade is it!
The smaller the brush the better in order to get a very clean line. What I found is that this is the product to use for sharp lines. The color is a bit dark, I’m wearing blonde, but it went on so easily. I had to work a bit to get a clean finish at the end, which is the hardest area for me since my eyebrows taper off into nothingness, but after a bit of focus I achieved the look I wanted.
Raking through the brows with the spooly end of the brush will help soften up any lines left from the product. I really loved using it, found it to be fast, and would recommend to someone who likes precision and control in their eyebrow shape.
Next up is Estee Lauder The Brow Multitasker 3-in-1 tool in light blonde. This product came with an angled tear drop shape pencil, a soft foam cone shaped powder, and a spooly. Think of this as the all-in-one tool.
I loved the color of this as it was light enough for my light skin and light hair, and also was cool enough in tone. The pencil wasn’t waxy in a way that left thick strokes, but I wasn’t able to get as clean of a line like I did with the pomade and angled brush. I wasn’t expecting to, but I just want to make that clear.
The powder aspect of this tool didn’t blow me away, but it did add a bit of thickness to the brows overall. I think I could live without it, but it would be a great option for filling in holes or gaps in your brows if you have that problem.
The result was a softer finish in general. The end wasn’t as crisp, it sort of simply faded away, but I liked that it looked quite natural.
Between the two, I liked the Anastasia dipbrow pomade better for me, but I would happily use and recommend the Estee Lauder The Brow Multitasker 3-in-1 to anyone who doesn’t want either the requirement of a brush (yet one more to wash!) or the crispness of the finish.
