Finally, L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Pomade is here in the Philippines! I’ve been seeing a lot of good reviews of the L’Oreal Paris Paradise Brow Pomade. Although I have not tried the latter, I wonder if the one they just launched is as good as what they say. I’ve been using it for several weeks now and here is my full review of L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Pomade.
L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Pomade Product Information
Build your most perfect brows, with our 1st Brow Pomade for a natural or bold look. Create, define and fill your brows with this highly-pigmented, matte formula that glides on smoothly.
The ultra-precise slanted brush allows you to easily create the brows of your dreams! Longwear formula that resists smudging and fading.
Pros: L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Pomade
- It has cream to powder formula that glides on smoothly and is easy to blend.
- It is pigmented.
- It is long lasting—can last the entire day with very minimal fading.
- It does not smudge.
- It comes with a nice slanted brush. The size of the brush is just perfect to easily fill in and define brows.
- It is reasonably priced at PHP 500.
- It can be used on all brow types—sparse or even non-existent brows.
Cons: L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Pomade
- It has the tendency to clump a little when layering the product or when the brush is not clean.
In this case, the clumps came from hardened product on the brush that’s why it is important to clean the brush every after use.
- Choosing a shade can be tricky. It can look a little lighter on pot than on brows so try to visit the counters first to swatch on testers.
- The product can dry up more quickly when exposed to air so it is important to close the pot tightly every after use.
- It is not for those who want the most natural looking brows.
- It only comes in 3 shades as of the moment—103 Chatain, 104 Brunette, and 106 Ebony. The lightest (103), which is the one I’m using, is still quite dark for my hair color.
Tips on L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Pomade
- Dip the built-in slanted brush into the pomade. Remember to start with a small amount first and build or layer until you achieve the desired shade.
- Define and fill in your brow. I prefer starting in the middle, to the arch and all the way to the tail of the brows. Then I use whatever is left on the brush on the inner corner of the brow for that faded effect.
- Brush through with a clean spoolie to blend.
- Do not forget to wipe off excess product on the brush before putting it back in the container. This will prevent product build up and hardening of the brush.
- Close the pot tightly so the product won’t dry up.
L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Pomade Verdict
L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Pomade is definitely a bang for the buck! It has great formula that glides smoothly and can easily be blended. I can define and fill in my brows in a minute! The little clumping is forgiveable as I can easily use a spoolie to brush off any excess product.
The small brush is another surprise. I don’t normally use applicators that come with the product as they are usually crappy. This one isn’t! The thin slanted brush allows me to draw hair-like strokes, at the same time, fill in gaps.
The shades can be tricky though since they look lighter on the pot. If I find my brows too dark, I just adjust the shade using a lighter shade of brow mascara. Unfortunately, they don’t have light shades yet so those who have blonde or light-colored hair might have to wait for a little more (that is if they are realeasing more shades).
I recommend L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Pomade to those looking for an affordable brow product in cream to powder formula. Those with non-existent brows will find it easier to draw brows with this product. In the same way, those with sparse brows can also use this to fill in and define brows. It is not for those who prefer natural looking brows, which can easily be done using a brow pencil or powder. L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Pomade is for those who like precise or well-defined brows.
This is shade 103 Chatain. The first two swatches were applied with 2 layers. The last two swatches were applied with a light hand and with whatever product left on the brush from the first two swatches. I did not dip the brush again in the pot for the last two swatches.
This is shade 103 Chatain on my brows, which I still find a little dark for my hair color.
