After trying the ABH DIPBROW Gel for £19 (and slinging it because I don’t have the time or patience to clean 99% of the product off the brush before using it) this looked like quite a smart take on a faster brow pomade application.
For a start, it’s a much more sensible £6 and comes in a nice range of tones including Ash Brown for people who want a cool coloured brow product – it’s absolutely not the auburn tone that the website shows. I also liked the look of the applicator since it’s nice and small with a teardrop shape brush to help finesse things if you have smaller eyebrows.
The actual formula is lovely, a thinner pomade consistency and I didn’t have any issues with the actual application onto my brows. However, if you have any product that uses the “clicky button on the end to force product to the applicator” then you might guess what my major, deal-breaking complaint is!
Click. No product. Clickclick. No product. Clickclickclick. No product. Clickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclick. PRODUCT. Except now you’ve over clicked and there’s far too much pomade so you have to scrape some off and hope it won’t be too much for your eyebrow. Then you’re right back to click, no product.
If you have the patience to work with the packaging then I absolutely recommend the formula, however, if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to fill and tame your brows then I’d stick with their pot pomade or brow pencils.
