One of the best known products from Anastasia Beverly Hills are her eyebrow products: the Dipbrow Pomade and the Brow Wiz. If you watch makeup tutorials on youtube, about 99% of these beauty gurus/makeup artists will be using either one of these products. But which one is better…?
(if you don’t want a in depth review, there’s a summary at the bottom of the page)
Let’s start with the Brow Wiz. It retails for £15.50 in the UK and $21 in the USA. It reminds me of a pencil because you’re literally drawing your eyebrows on. On one end you get the product, and on the other you get a spooly which I think is a really good addition. With this product, you get more precision than with the Dipbrow which means that it is a lot easier to get the shape you want, and if you happen to make a mistake it is easier to wipe it away. The resulting colour is definitely lighter than the colour that you get with the Dipbrow, which is why I believe that this product is better for anybody who prefers natural looking eyebrows. I also noticed that it lasts a lot longer throughout the day than the Dipbrow. I tend to use this product when I can’t be bothered to do a full glam and want to keep my makeup basic, but I still want my eyebrows to look good.
A dupe for this product is the Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil (£8).
Moving on to the Dipbrow Pomade. It retails for £15 in the UK and $18 in the USA. Like I said in the previous paragraph, the colour with this product is a LOT darker so be aware of that when purchasing both of this products. I wouldn’t recommend buying e.g. Soft Brown in both the Brow Wiz and the Dipbrow because it won’t be the same colour. The Dipbrow doesn’t last as long because its more of a liquid formula, so any accidental touch will wipe the product away. I would recommend setting this product with a powder product in order to make it last longer. If you want a defined brow, the Dipbrow Pomade is definitely the option for you. It will leave your brows looking fleeky af, and it will look even better once you cut your brow with concealer. This is definitely my current ‘go to’ brow product, and my favourite out of the two.
The only dupe that I’ve tried for this product is the Freedom Pro Eyebrow Pomade (£5). It’s not my favourite, but it did the job.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
– Better for natural eyebrows
– More control and precision
– Lighter colour than the Dipbrow
– Last longer throughout the day
– More expensive than Dipbrow
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade
– Better for defined eyebrows
– Less control and precision
– Darker colour than the Brow Wiz
– Doesn’t last as long throughout the day unless set with powder product
– Cheaper than the Brow Wiz
So basically when it comes to deciding which one you should buy, it’s all down to your personal preference. I prefer the Dipbrow but a lot of people prefer the Brow Wiz. It doesn’t matter which one you got for, they both do the same job but obviously provide different finishes.
I hope I was able to help some of you who are deciding which one of these two products to buy! And like always, if there’s any eyebrow products that you live by, please let me know as I love trying out new products!
Lots of love, Stef x
