Recently I picked up some new brow products from Ulta. I got the NYX Tame and Frame brow pomade which is along the same lines as Anastasia Beverly Hill Dip Brow. So I already owned the Dip Brow and I wanted to try these because they were buy 1 get 1 50% off. They're about $7 a piece. Which is way better than $18 for the Dip Brow. So I got Blonde and Brunette. I thought that would be good for my clients and it was a great deal so why not.
First thing is: they're really good. Like impressive. They are almost like a mousse consistency instead of a cream. Or just incredibly creamy whatever you prefer. They are very easy to work with. I honestly think I like them a little better than the Dip Brow. The only possible negative thing is they might could smudge possible if you used too much. However, work with a little product and build from there is what I would recommend.
Tame and Frame in Brunette
Tame and Frame in Blonde
The Tame in Frame is actually more product than the Dip Brow. Dip Brow is 4g and Tame and Frame is 5g. So that's definitely a plus. They're used the same way. A pomade or cream is going to really sculpt the brow better than a pencil or powder. If you are going for something subtle I recommend using a powder. If you don't have a lot of experience with your brow shade then pomade and creams can get over done or tooooo sculpted. When you're a brunette like me that's easy to do anyway because you almost always look boxy and sculpted. I've just came to accept it. The way to avoid that is to brush through the hair with a spooly brush continuously to avoid getting boxy and looking too sculpted.
I used the blonde in the front of the brow and the brunette through the rest. The brunette is what's going to give it its shape and define it but the blonde is going to subtly fill in the sparse areas in the front without getting too boxy.
The brunette is not the exact color of the Dip Brow Medium Brown but it's very close. It's just a little lighter I would say.
This is a before and after of my unruly brows and then after I've filled them in using both Blonde and Brunette Tame and Frame.
I give this two thumbs up. There are 5 shades and they are $6.99 at Ulta and buy one get one 50% off.
