Face of the Day: Everyday Petunia

Hello, everyone! I hope you're having a good week so far. We've made it to February already! I wanted to post this quick Face of the Day because I am looking for recommendations for new brow products. I'm looking to buy something different from my usual Anastasia DipBrow Pomade. Although I still love it, I'm looking for something that won't dry out as quickly. I've owned my ABH DipBrow for about a year and a half. That's definitely a long time, but I'm bummed that there's still a lot of product left but it has become very dry and flaky. I know a lot of people have this problem and there's a popular method for "fixing it" but it's a very temporary fix and it dries again very quickly.

Here I am using the NYX Eyebrow Gel in Espresso. I like this product a lot. It's water resistant and longer lasting than Anastasia's DipBrow, but its liquid texture makes it look a bit harsher on the brows. Please recommend your favorite brow products (besides DipBrow) so I can see if I can find a replacement go-to brow product. Thank you! :)

  1. I can strongly recommend the Freedom Brow Pomade, it's an incredible dupe for the Pomade, at a third of the price!

    Feel free to check out my blog also x

  3. Very pretty! I really like Anastasia's Brow Wiz (for a stronger brow) and Shu Uemura Hard Formula brow pencil and Stila Brow Pen (for a more natural look).

  5. Man, I'm in the exact same boat as you! I've had my dip brow for almost two years now and while it's pretty much all I've used and I love it, I kind of want a different color but theres still so much product left I'd feel wasteful lol. If only they could make the jars in mini sizes! I'll have to check back if you end up finding anything as good :)

  6. You should have a look at the MUFE Aqua Brow! I've used 2-3 tubes of them in my time when I used to use gel products on my brows (not because I used them up but because I kept changing hair color ^^') - but I loved it! Now I'm reverted back to pencil because I want a grey brow.

  7. Gorgeous, as always! For years, I've been using Anastasia's Brow Powder Duo and, more recently, layering it with Anastasia's Tinted Brow Gel. Match made in heaven for me! xo

  9. I know what you mean, I recently put the kiko mixing solution in mine and its worked really well, but I oddly preferred it when it was drier?! I drew on some pretty scary brows once it was mixed with the kiko stuff haha

  11. I have and like dipbrow but sometimes I can't be bothered with it. My everyday brow product is the Brow Wiz, or there's a Tarte one that's very similar. If I'm going for a chill brow I'll use MAC Mystery.

  12. I absolutely love MUFE Aqua Brow! It's a long-wearing gel and comes in a squeezy tube so it doesn't dry out :)

  14. Ooh! That actually looks great with your black hair. I've been looking for something dark and ashy without being plain black. Just have to use a lighter hand I guess.

  15. I've been using the IT version, its called waterproof 5-1 micro fiber creme gel stain and the texture & pigmentation are perfect!
    I only wish it came in more colors, because I'm using the darkest shade (dark brown) and it's warm and a touch too light for me. It's not as warm as some brow products I've tried, I can get away with it but I wish it was darker BC my natural hair color and brows are cool deep brown almost black.
    Also even if I find a better brow product the IT build a brow brush is ammmaaaayyyyzing, so i will still use it. It's an angled brush with little divets so it really looks like hairs when you draw or fill in brows. You can make your brows look fuller, easily.

  19. I've only recently started trying out doing my brows, and I use the Milani brow pencil. I'd really like to try out the Salon Perfect pomade.
