“This creamy, multitasking product glides on skin and hair smoothly to create clean, defined brows. The standout formula works as a brow primer and provides color, sculpture, and shading. It is ideal for oily skin and in humid climates.”
I hate my brows. Or, maybe, hate isn’t a strong enough word. I loathe my brows.
Seriously–if there was one things I could change about myself, it wouldn’t be my girth or my wonky teeth or my hyper-sensitive skin. It would, hands down, no hesitation, be the sparseness of my hair. (Which I’m hoping would cure both my skimpy brows and my sad hairline in one swoop. And no, I don’t think that wish is cheating.)
My eyebrows are ridiculously sparse. Thin all throughout, with some almost bare spots along the tail–terrible, terrible brows, I tell you! They’re not even like this from overtweezing, which I would have to accept as my own mistake. They just decided to go along for the ride when my hair started thinning out in my late twenties, much to my dismay. I can’t go a day without filling them in (well, unless I don’t plan on leaving the house).
In my quest to achieve normal looking brows (that are neither nonexistent nor circus clown drawn on), I’ve tried over a dozen different products in the past five years. Sadly, this continuing to try new things means that they’ve all had lackluster results. The colors were off, the formula smeared on hot days, they looks too harsh–you name it, I experienced it.
The best success I have had was with the IT Cosmetics Your Brows But Better skinny pencil, in their universal taupe shade. That stuff is great! The formula lasts through sweat and rain, looks very natural when compared to my natural brow hair color, and the pencil has a point that is both thin and soft enough to get a full but not harsh look. However, with current shade of flaming auburn hair, the color just wasn’t doing it for me.
So, I decided it was time to hybrid-ize my brows. I could use that lovely pencil to shape them out, but I needed a little something more–a tinted product of some sort that could make my brows look a touch more like my dyed hair. Enter Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Auburn.
