Brows are everything these days. Like do you remember a time when no one really wore anything to fill in their eyebrows, and we all went around with the sparsest of brows resembling pieces of spaghetti. Yes, I too would rather forget about this time in brow history… But moving on a few years, brows have made a huge comeback and there are now endless amounts of products on the market that can transform your brows into Cara Develvigne-esque beauties.
If you have read my post on Brow Products for Blondes with Dark Brows, you will have seen that one of my favourite products to use is the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade. I’ve been using this product on and off for the past year or so and have absolutely loved it. The only thing that isn’t so great about it is the cost… It retails at £14, which definitely makes it one of the pricier brow products out there. So if I can find a dupe for anything like this, I am happy.
So when I saw the Makeup Revolution Brow PomadeMakeup Revolution Brow Pomade*, also in the shade Medium Brown and at a fraction of the price (only £6!) of the ABH dip brow, I knew I had to give it a go to see how the two compared.
As both shades are Medium Brown, I knew that the shades were going to be similar, but didn’t expect them to be identical! In the two tubs the MUR one looks a little light but when applied they are literally the exact same shade. They are such a good match for colour, so I had no problem using the new one to match my eyebrows. Even when applied, the Makeup Revolution had no red undertones to it (which I hate). It was just a sort of cool toned brown that suited my eyebrows completely. So colour-wise it gets a huge tick from me!
Formula and Application
Both are actually slightly different formulas. I found the ABH one to have a more creamy consistency. When you dip the brush in, you had to do it very softly so you only get a little of the product. But with the MUR one, it is a bit drier, so I found that I was having to build up the colour. I didn’t actually mind this though as it looked quite natural on my brows.
The Makeup Revolution Brow Pomade actually came with its own brush, but I’ll be honest, it isn’t the best. So I prefer to use my Real Techniques Eyebrow Brush from the kit. I find you can get a more precise line from it to shape your brows.
There isn’t too much to say about the longevity, apart from the fact that both products lasted me all day. I had no problem with either wearing off, so was left really impressed with the MUR brow pomade.
So all in all, the Makeup Revolution Brow Pomade is actually well worth a purchase I would say! I have been left super happy with how it compares to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade. Obviously, they aren’t identical when considering the formula, but they still both leave me with decent looking brows!
Have you tried either of these brow pomades? Which is your favourite?
