Anastasia Brow Powder Duo Review

Monday, December 2, 2013

Good evening!

I recently went back to a darker hair color (more in the natural range as opposed to the mocha color I've had for the last year) so I decided to try out a different brow product in a darker, cooler shade. I had previously been using NARS Bali to fill in my brows for roughly two, maybe even three years. I ordered one of the newer shades of Anastasia Brow Powder Duos, Granite.

The duo comes in a single cake in a very tiny compact. It looks very pretty with the rose gold "A" stylized on the cover and contains a mirror on the inside.

I had swatched most of the shades in store before ordering. Medium Brown was nice and cool but seemed too light. Brunette and Ebony were darker but warmer. I decided to go with Granite even though it is really dark but with a very light hand to compensate.

The powder is very finely milled and highly pigmented, I barely touch my brush to the cake to pick up the perfect amount. That was one thing I had disliked with previous brow powders I had used (the most recent that comes to mind is NYX), the powder didn't apply as nicely due to the more grainy texture and had a tendency to become hardened in the pan. My previous post on brows covered what other products I used quite extensively, so I'll just leave it at that.

Priced at $23 it certainly isn't the cheapest brow product out there, but I was happy with it. The most important thing to me was getting the undertone right and Granite hit that mark.

Product featured was purchased by me, for my own use. For additional information, please refer to my Disclosure Policy.
