The climate in Chennai now is such that not a bit of makeup can sit on my face. Anything that I try to throw on just slips and slides within the next five minutes. The city is heating up and the temperatures are falling between 34 to 36 °C every day. It feels so painful to go out during the day. I have absolutely gone no makeup except for filling in my browns. Once you start getting the hang of doing your brows then it becomes super addictive.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel
Claims : A clear gel for all hair colors that sets, defines, and holds brows in place all day. This long-wearing clear gel sets and defines brows without fuss. The soothing chamomile formula also conditions hair and offers a lustrous, natural look.
Why I love it:
This brow gel has become a staple in my freelancing kit as well as my personal makeup kit. I have not used that many eyebrow gels to be very honest. This was something that I started using a year ago and from then I am hooked on to this product. I have not got the mood to try any other gel because the product is such a winner. It holds brow hair in place the whole day. I really like that editorial brow look, so I comb through my brown hair up and it holds on so beautifully. Also it seals any sort of brow product underneath in place. Even if I do not bother to do any sort of makeup on a particular day, I just tend to do my eyebrows super quick and If you are also that kind of girl who can’t leave the house without doing your brows then this is a must buy. Also as the brand claims this brow gel has not done any harm to my brows, no falling of brow hair or anything as such to report.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo (Ash Brown)
What it is: A two-shade brow powder compact that creates a natural brow.
Claims: Create beautiful and natural brow effects with Anastasia’s bestselling Brow Powder Duo. This lightweight, sheer to medium coverage formula was designed to be smudge-proof and comes with two shades per compact to ensure the perfect brow color.
My thoughts on the product:
I love Anastasia as a brand, so I couldn’t resist picking this product. I loved their dip brow and that was my go to product for the longest time. It’s such a shame that I haven’t reviewed it here. I was out of the dip brow and that is when I started using this brow powder from them. I picked up the shade ash brown, which I believe is a not so famous shade from their collection, but I was in a mood to try a grey brow powder, I was tired of the brown ones which have never suited my brow colour. I dint have great hopes about the colour and in general just because it’s a powder, so I thought it wouldn’t stay a much long on me because in the climate that I live in powders just don’t stay put. But to my surprise when I tried on the shade, it was like a match made in heaven. Even if I go close to the mirror and check my eyebrows it’ll be hard to say that something is happening there, because the finish is so natural. No one can hardly find out that you’ve filled in your brows. And the best part of this powder is that it comes with two shades, the lighter shade would go on the start of the brow and the darker shade would go mid length to tail of eyebrow. I totally appreciate Anastasia for this brilliant thought, which would make application fool proof even for a beginner.
The brand claims that the product is smudge proof, but in a super humid climate that I live in, it is not smudge proof on its own but when I top it with the clear brow gel it works out for a very decent time on me. For everyday basic makeup the Anastasia brow powder duo and the clear brow gel are a match made in heaven. Both together would get the job done and would also look super natural. I highly suggest you try these out if you are in the looking out for good quality brow stuff for everyday use. I would also have the review of the new launch from the brand, the brow definer coming very soon.
I have used both these products in my video below.
