My Experience with the Product:
The product comes in a transparent pot with a black lid on it. The ABH logo printed in gold on top of lid is simply luxurious. The overall packaging looks quite impressive. Due to small in size, the pot is easy to carry. They have launched 11 shades for every skin tone which is amazing and I opted for shade Ebony. Ebony shade is for Black hair with a warm undertone.
The texture is very smooth and glides easily on the brows which help in achieving a clean and defined brow. The consistency is thick gel which holds the product nicely on the brush. I use angular brush with a spoolie to get the defined brows. Tip- when the brush is dipped in pomade, always remove the excess product inside the cap or on back of the hand as this will help you to have clean strokes on brow. It spreads effortlessly on hair and skin . The product is quick drying and settles in few seconds which gives you some time to blend the product. Once settled, it turns into a matte finish.
As I promised, the interesting fact that I learned is the Golden ratio to get that perfectly clean and defined shape. Anastasia Beverly Hills was founded in 1997 when Anastasia Soare, inspired by the ancient principle of Divine Proportion, began tending to the shape of an at the time often overlooked feature – brows. Anastasia recognized that this mathematical principle of thirds, known more modernly as the Golden Ratio, could influence not only centuries of art and architecture, but could be applied directly to the human face to create aesthetic harmony. Believing that brows should be shaped according to an individual’s bone structure, Anastasia developed a formula for the Golden Ratio’s application. See the below image-
Now let us talk about pigmentation. The product is highly pigmented, so little goes a long way. Make sure to use a clear spoolie brush to give that fuller and natural look after the application of the product. I am an eyebrow pencil girl so when I started using the pomade it took me 7-8 trials to get my hand on this product and now, I love it.
The staying power is amazing and once settle it does not move from its place neither spread. The product stays entire day on my brows. It is a smudge proof, waterproof product and needs to be removed by makeup remover. I generally use Garnier micellar water which works pretty well to remove the product from the brows. I stay in Dubai where the climate is too humid, and any waterproof makeup can give up if not set with the setting spray but I am highly impressed with the way it worked in damp climate. The product can also be used as eyeliner or a base for eye makeup.
Overall, I am in love with this product and now I know why all the famous MUAs have this in their makeup bag. The staying power and pigment are amazing. It did not fade and lasted my entire day. If you are using a product heavy-handed it will appear fake, so make sure you use a product light-handed. Remember- little product goes long way. Though it’s pricey but worth the money.
