I just purchased this product after using drug store powder duos...didn't like the formula of them. The *Anastasia brow powder duo is sooo compacted & opaque which makes it a great product. You can mix the two shades or create a gradient effect on ur brows. I still need a pencil to line my brows...I will be trying the brow wiz next. <3
Its really small that you can even place it on the palm of your hand...however it works well
I was kind of upset because of the fact its really small and on picture it looks like the ordinary size you will usually buy for a normal brow prowder. Its so small that you can even place it on the palm of your hand...however it works well it stays on through out the day.
Amazing for heatwave brows
I've been an Anastasia convert for years now. The last few weeks have seen temperatures in the high 90s with about a billion percent humidity, which means that even with primers and setting sprays my brows disappear by noon. In looking for hot weather alternatives, I found a sale kit which included brow powder, clear brow gel, and the most amazing double-tipped eyebrow brush.
If you're not used to working with eyebrow powder, I would recommend starting here. The color saturation is dark enough to be dramatic while still looking realistic. The dark brown kit contains a dark brown powder as well as a dark ash blonde one making it suitable for a wide range of skin and hair color combinations. The angled brow brush is on the small side which is a benefit for detailed brow work. It's stiff enough to use for creating the thinnest brows while soft enough to avoid scratching. The other end of the brush has a traditional brow grooming tool. The included brow gel acts as an additional step to set the brow powder. It was easy to use, though I found myself wishing the applicator was a little smaller. Added bonus: the compact has a tiny mirror for touch-ups (though I didn't find I needed to do any).
While I'll still experiment to find the perfect products at every price point, this is definitely going to become a staple for both my personal and professional makeup kits.
I dye my hair jet black and it's hard to find an eyebrow powder to match. Black would look unnatural, but most dark browns have too much red in them. The Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Ebony is the closest I've come to perfection. I only use the darker of the two shades and it provides buildable colour that looks natural and lasts until I take it off. I bought mine a year and a half ago and am not even close to hitting pan yet--definitely a good investment!
Works well with my color, i use a thin brush and use quick stroke to draw hairs. It looks very natural and very good, the two colors blend together and you can shape your eyebrow however you please using this powder. It looks very even, and works very professionally. I will be ordering this product again when i run out.
The Best For Reds
My grandma got this for my birthday this year. It's one of those things I've been battling to buy because it's such a simple product with a pricey ticket attached. BUT it solved a big part of my makeup insecurities! I dye my hair red, but I believe myself to be a redhead at heart. This works amazingly to match my hair. No matter what hue it is. The product glides on with my angled brushes. I do need my brush to be wet in order to have the product turn up nice and opaque. If everything else melts off my face, then I sleep in it, my brows will still look perfect without any brow gel. I won't be buying any other brow product ever again.
Bad colors - too lazy
Since using this product for a little over a year, I've discovered I'm definitely more of a brow pencil gal. I never really liked the ashy color of these powders and I never enjoyed the extra effort of applying two colors (I'm lazy, I know!). I still use the Anastasia 7 double-sided brush sometimes, though. Will not be repurchasing.
