Crazy expensive eyebrows with Anastasia Beverly Hills
I've long been hearing amazing things about Anastasia Beverly Hills. She is the queen of brows, so I'm lead to believe. Perhaps most famous is her Brow Wiz, but the thought of spending £15.50 on a pencil....no matter how good....just didn't sit well with me. So what did I do? Go and spend £30 (well, £24 thanks to a discount code - but there was P&P on top!) on the Dipbrow Pomade and recommended brush instead. Lorna Logic right there.
I'll admit that choosing a shade caused quite a bit of angst. In the end I figured that I've got fairly dark brows naturally, and even putting a light shade on top doesn't really affect the overall colour. I did read a lot of reviews though, and spotted a couple of people who had purchased a fair too ashy shade (Taupe, I think that was) and looked like they had grey eyebrows. In the end I went with Soft Brown; bang in the middle I figured, and it's working well for me.
For the past year or so I've been trying to reign my spending habits in and avoid rash decisions when it comes to expensive beauty products. MAC limited edition collections, I'm looking at you. But as much as I hate myself for saying it, this stuff was worth every penny. I've finally achieved defined brows from every angle, in a shape that I'm really pleased with.
It's crazy how much one product can change things. I genuinely believed that with the right skills, it didn't matter so much which tools were being used. Not true! This makes eyebrows so easy, and although it's an expensive initial payout, the brush seems a good quality and I'm hoping it will last me a good while. And if you're wondering whether you need to buy the brush as well? Let's just say I've never found one as dense and sturdy as this on the high street.
So it's out there. Until I break even with cost-per-wear, I think it's fair to say I'm sporting some ridiculously expensive eyebrows. But I'm happy! Now tell me....are there any expensive products you're glad you finally bought? It's so nice when a splurge turns out to be worth it!
