Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel - Review and Makeup Look

Have you ever tried a product and fell in love with it instantly?! I can tell you that love-at-first-try happened with the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel!

You know what's even crazier about falling instantly in love with this product? I've never actually tried the iconic ABH Dipbrow pomade! I just rarely use a pomade so it wasn't a product that made me need to try it! 


But, I use a brow gel basically every day, so I was really excited to try out the Dipbrow Gel! And, I waited a little while to pick this up because I wanted to try out the mini version first and it took a little while for the minis to come in to stock on Sephora's website. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel - Review and Makeup Look

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel ~ $12.00 CAN for mini size shown here (full size is $24.00 CAN). A highly-pigmented brow gel with a long-lasting, waterproof formula for creating fuller-looking, defined brows—like Dipbrow Pomade in a gel form.

This is available in 11 shades ranging from Blonde to Granite, and I picked up the shade Dark Brown, described as "for dark brown hair with a warm undertone". I thought it was a good shade selection as I dye my hair darker, 

This is described as a waterproof formula that lasts up to 12 hours and the applicator allows for application both on the brows and the skin for a natural looking finish. I thought it lived up to that long wear - I've worn this in all weather (super hot to raining) and my brows have stayed in place and not ran or faded! This brow gel actually offered a really great amount of hold as well - however I shaped my brows is how they stayed until I washed them off!

This has a little spoolie applicator and what's really great about it, is that only a little bit of product comes out on the applicator - you do not need any more that what comes out on the brush. A little goes a long way with this product!

I was instantly pleased with how this product looked on my brows - it really works well for me because I have naturally thicker brows and really use a brow product to darken, control and fill in. I don't like super sharp brow lines, especially not for an everyday brow and prefer a more natural brow look. 

But, this can be a little bit of a finicky product and my best advice is to use the smallest (a couple of dots and I'm good) amount of product and brush it through the brows. I found pulling the wand out without dipping back in was enough to fill in both eyebrows and then brush over them a second time to shape. If you use too much, I can see how this could look gloopy, so go with the "less is more" saying while using this and build it up if needed!

This brow look is only the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel on my brows and I can't remember the last time I fell so quickly in love with a product, and it's easily become my go-to. I love that it wears well on it's own and can fill in my brows and look great, or I can layer it on top of a brow pencil to set/hold a more defined shape. But, I do think this offers a good amount of definition and precision as that little applicator works really nicely! 


What's your go-to brow product - pencil, gel or pomade?! I think a gel is the easiest and quickest for everyday, and will add a pencil under for a more defined look myself!

  3. It looks so natural, some tinted brow gels look too thick on the brows but this one looks great!

  4. Wow your brows look amazing. I like brow mascaras so much for when I'm just trying to get the right colour going on. This seems like a real nice one.
