Anastasia Brow Powder Duo Review

Pictures taken by me, from very late May
Hey everyone!
Having well groomed and filled in brows may not seem very important, but trust me when i say they are.  Eye brows are the first thing a person notices about another person, as well, brows serve as a frame for the entire face, therefore you want to make sure that your brows are well kept and lightly filled in.  As for the well-groomed part, waxing and tweezing can take care of that.  But if your brows are kind of sparse like mine, clearly, tweezers are not going to help you.  I've dealt with sparse brows my entire life, until now.  My life saver?  Anastasia brow powder duo in Brunette.

I really love the sleek silver compact.  As you can see it's just stunning on the outside.  It contains a round mirror on the inside, which is convenient for application and touch ups on the go.  For $22, i think that the compact is a little small.  Despite that, I don't think it would be a huge problem but this is a duo, which means that it contains two colors (a light brown and dark brown).  For this specific duo, I can't use the dark brown color, which means I'm only getting use of half of the pan.  For the price tag, I definitely think that Anastasia needs to create single powders, because although these duos are great for makeup artists, and people who dye their hair, people like me can only use half of the pan. By the way, I've been using this duo every day since the beginning of April and although I've made a huge dent, I haven't hit pan yet. 
Lasting Power
This lasts all through the day, I've gone from 6 am-12am without having to do any touch ups on my brows, which shows you how great the lasting power is. It's not waterproof, so if you go swimming or are out in a torrential down pour it's going to come off, so i recommend you bring it in your purse for touch ups if the forecast calls for rain or you plan on going swimming.  I have gone swimming wearing this on my brows, and i can tell you that it does not streak down your face and smudge, it simply washes away, leaving your brows bare again. 
The pigmentation on these is absolutely amazing! On the swatches above, i swept my finger through each color once and swatched it on my arm, repeating 3 more times. The light brown works for people with dark brown eye brows as well as light brown eye brows.  I would recommend the dark brown color for those with raven black hair.  I have some what dark brown eye brows, and the dark brown made me look really scary.  It is way too harsh a color for people with light-medium dark brown hair.

Like i said, i think for the amount you get and the fact that, for me, I'm only using half of the pan, $22 US and $29 CND is a rip-off.  However, the pigmentation is great and lasting power is great so i guess that makes up for it.   

Packaging: 3/5
Lasting Power: 5/5
Color: 3/5
Price: 2/5 
Total: 13/20 

In conclusion, this product is great, and I'm going to keep using it until it's finished, but i wouldn't repurchase it.  There are definitely cheaper options out there.

Leave a comment below telling me what you think of this duo, and don't forget to follow me!


  1. What a rip. Could you suggest any brow powders that are less expensive but still good quality?

  2. Definitely. You could use a matte MAC eye shadow that matches your eye brow shade, i see many people doing that these days. If you want a suggestion for a drugstore brow kit i could recommend NYX brow powder kits. I've heard really good things about those kits. Thank you for the question and i hope i helped you. If oyu have any more questions feel free to e-mail me!
