Who knew this unassuming looking jar of brow pomade would rock my world in its entirety? Kat Von D has recently released a Super Brow Pomade claiming 24-hour, waterproof magnificence. Yes it’s magnificent. No I haven’t worn it for 24 hours awake. Yes, you should continue reading.
My skin type
I have sparse brows and that can be a double-edged sword but in this case it is not a problem because this pomade is ah-mazing!
What it’s supposed to do
From the brand: Kat Von D stretched the boundaries of innovation to create the weightless, waterproof formula she’s always wanted but hasn’t been able to find. Saturated with as much pigment as possible, this high-pigment brow pomade delivers budge-proof brows that don’t come off until you want them to.
How I use it
I use an angled liner brush to fill in my brows. The saying, “a little bit goes a long way” is in full effect here! I use less than half the amount of the Kat Von D Brow Pomade than I do the ABH Dip Brow. I very lightly tap the brush against the surface of the pomade, applying no pressure at all. The pomade is unbelievably pigmented and I usually only need to tap the brush against the pomade twice to get a natural brow like the one above. If necessary, I take a brow brush or softer spoolie and blend/groom the pomade. I do this about half the time, depending on how dark I make my brows.
How long I used it
I have been using this pomade since it first came out and I cannot put it down!
What I like about it
While there is a major learning curve to the pomade, I was able to get it down fairly quickly. You learn right away how gentle you need to be with it. At first, I didn’t like that it was overly pigmented but I love the outcome so much I have barely even reached for my Dip Brow. And because this is so pigmented, I can see this lasting twice as long as Dip Brow.
Now, I feel like I am still in the honeymoon phase of use so I am not sure how long this would take to dry out, or if it even does dry out. I have been pretty good at keeping it capped, but did slip up one day and came home to find that I had left the lid off of it. It still worked as good as new and I didn’t detect any changes in the performance.
I also love the price ($19.00)! I really do feel like this certainly competes with Dip Brow and is on track to be a Holy Grail brow product for me!
What could be better
It turns out I don’t have much use for products that are waterproof, so I have not been able to test that claim. I will say I slept in my makeup one night using this and the product was noticeably removed so I am skeptical about the waterproof claim.
Again, there is a learning curve and I would definitely consider it to be a professional product; not very beginner friendly. However, with practice I think most people will be able to figure out how to use this. Other than that, I’ve got nothing critical to say about the product.
