Up until around 18 months ago I rarely filled my brows in and if I did I would use a small amount of eye brow pencil lightly applied over my own brows, I didn't change the shape or do anything too dramatic and to be honest you couldn't really tell I'd done much but then I got a little braver and started to use Omega eyeshadow from MAC to fill my brows in and I made more of an effort and started to receive compliments on them. My youngest daughter Lissy uses the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade and she loves it, her brows always look lovely so I looked at swatches on line and spent a lot of time thinking about buying the Dip Brow but never actually got round to it because in some swatches the Blonde shade looked quite warm and I worried it wouldn't be right for me and didn't want to risk it but then for Christmas my lovely daughters surprised me with the Dip Brow in the shade blonde and an Anastasia Beverley Hills Duo Brow Brush (number 12).
What ABH Says About Dipbrow Pomade
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade is a waterproof brow colour which sculpts and defines the brows.
The ultimate choice for perfectly precise brows, Dipbrow Pomade has a smudge free, creamy formula which glides effortlessly onto the skin and adheres to the brow hairs for optimal definition. Perfect for oily skin and humid climates, Dipbrow Pomade can be used as a brow definer or eyeliner and provides luxurious colour and sculpture.
Available in a selection of shades to suit all brow colours, Dipbrow Pomade also primes the brows for brow powder application and leaves the brows looking perfectly groomed, defined and flawless.

The first time I used the Dipbrow I have to admit I found it quite difficult to use and my daughter Lissy had to fill my brows in for me the first few times I applied my make up, so it can need some practice depending on the person, if you are used to filling your brows in and changing the shape etc you probably won't need to practice but I did.
I really like the Number 12 brush, there is a spoolie on one end and an angled brush on the other, the brush is quite firm making application of the Dipbrow easier. I have a few different angled brushes but I do prefer to use the ABH one when using the Dipbrow. If ever I apply too much product to my brows I use the spoolie end of the brush to brush my brows through and it helps to soften them, the spoolie is fantastic it is quite dense and is the best spoolie brush I've used, who knew I could be this excited about a spoolie brush?!
My brows look so much nicer and defined when using the Dipbrow and once I have used the Dipbrow and my brows are finished they don't move for the full day, I find with eyeshadow or pencil I can lose half a brow throughout the day but with the Dipbrow I don't but that being said it does remove effortlessly with make up remover or cleanser.
I completely agree with everything ABH says about the Dipbrow, it is an amazing product and I will continue to use it to fill in my brows, I feel they look so much better now and am really pleased with the way they look when I use Dipbrow. I highly recommend both the Number 12 brush and the Dipbrow they are both amazing and together make such a difference to my brows, I wish I'd bitten the bullet and ordered the Dipbrow months ago.
Hopefully this post will be helpful to those of you who may be struggling to choose a shade in the Anastasia Beverley Hills Dipbrow too, luckily one of my friends started to use the shade Taupe and I could see it would be too dark for me so that helped me and I know it helped my daughters knowing that when they ordered it for me. My youngest daughter uses Dipbrow as I said and she uses the shade Medium Brown, she has mid brown hair. Lissy she fills her brows in at least 5 times a week and her first pot of Dipbrow lasted 6 months which is brilliant so it is a long lasting product, it isn't the most affordable brow product on the market but it certainly isn't the most expensive and I think 6 months is brilliant especially the amount of times it has been used.
Me wearing the Dipbrow In Blonde
I thought I would also include a photograph of Lissy wearing the Dipbrow because I thought it might help those of you who have brown hair when choosing a shade.
Lissy is on the left hand side of the photo wearing the black top.
I highly recommend both the Dipbrow and the brush and cannot praise both enough and if like me you have deliberated for months over getting the Dipbrow I would say to go for it, you won't be disappointed at all, it applies well and once it's on it doesn't move all day and my brows look and feel so much better, I couldn't imagine not filling them in now and if you had told me that 2 years ago, I wouldn't ever have believed you.
You can actually see how light my brows are in the family selfie above and they had been filled in with eyeshadow but you can see how light they are. I hope me showing you both mine and Lissy's photograph will be helpful if you are struggling to choose a shade.
