Milani Stay Put Brow Colour – Just as good as ABH’s Dipbrow Pomade?!

Hi All!

A while ago I bought a few things from Beauty Bay and I decided to try something different to the ABH Dipbrow Pomade, mostly because it’s pretty expensive for what it is!

I do like the effect of using a pomade or a more waxy brow product as they tend to last longer and can sometimes have a surprisingly natural finish. I spotted this one from Milani (which is a drugstore brand that’s popular in the US) and thought, ‘for £8 why not give it a go!)

This is the Milani Stay Put Brow Colour and I chose the shade 05 dark brown.

This brow colour is very similar to the ABH dip brow pomade, but you actually get a spoolie and short angled brush so that you can get using it straight away!

Soap & Glory 2 in 1 Brow Pencil – Disappointing…

soap-glory-2-in-1-brow

Recently I went shopping and completely forgot that I needed a brow pencil. I got plenty of other stuff (of course) but forgot something to make my brows look less poo.

Cue a little Boots click and collect order and I thought I would try this Soap & Glory Archery 2 in 1 Brow. I’ve tried S&G for brow products in the past and been a massive fan…but I have to say I am pretty disappointed with this one :(.

Want to Know How to Thread Your Own Eyebrows?

…Then give this video a watch, where I look rough AF and thread my eyebrows!

In this video I show you how I thread along the top of my eyebrows, as this is the easiest part to thread on yourself. When it comes to underneath your brow, you can thread but it’s riskier as this skin is more delicate and easier to hurt :(.

That’s why I tend to just tweeze this area as normal.

Let me know what you think if you find it useful, or if you think you’re going to give it a go!!

The Perfect Brow Pencil

The first product I’d tried from the Anastasia Beverly Hills make up range was an eyebrow product and from that point, I knew that if I ever needed something for a brow emergency, this was the place to get it.

I had been using my Soap & Glory Brow Archery pencil for a long time, until the gold writing had rubbed off. When I really wanted to get flawless brows I would use my Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade with an angled brush, but recently I have NOT had time for that.

I was roaming around virtually on BeautyBay.com and came across the Anastasia Brow Wiz and thought it was the right time to venture from a pomade to a pencil via the brand that knows all there is to know about the brow business.

I love that this pencil has a thin nib on one side and then a spoolie on the other – since trying a brow pencil with a spoolie I don’t think I’d ever want to use a pencil that doesn’t have one! They are perfect for using to help trim your brows (I thread mine so this is very handy) but it’s also great for brushing through your brows.

The texture of the Anastasia Brow Wiz is really clever – this pencil is very thin so it helps you be quite precise with the pencil and you can use really easy flicking motions to create your perfect brow. My pencil is in the shade Ebony, which is the shade I am in for the Dip Brow Pomade!

For me, the cleverest bit of this pencil is the formula. It’s a very waxy pencil and by that I mean that if you lightly draw with this you probably won’t end up seeing much on the skin. I think this is a great move, because basically that means that if you go wrong with one swipe it won’t ruin your whole brow. I think the reason this formula is waxy is so that your brows last as long as possible, but I think this has accidentally meant applying the product is much easier too! (A happy accident then)

I’ve loved using this recently – I prefer the formula to the Soap & Glory Brow Archery because it lasts longer and is a bit more forgiving if you end up being a bit heavy handed. Set with some brow gel, you’re good to go!

Have you tried the Anastasia Brow Wiz?

What are your thoughts on the formula?

Thanks for reading lovely people,
