    I use for eyebrow staying power, but it can be used as a glitter shadow primer, or mixed with eyeshadow to make your eyeliner colors endless.

      • Sensitive Skin

      Comments about Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Genius:

      I am quite sensitive to many eyeliner products, but have found that eyeshadow works for me as an eyeliner. Unfortunately it doesn't tend to last very long. Applying Beauty Genius to the eyeshadow line allows it to stay put all day until I remove it. And I don't have any allergic reaction at all. It is the perfect solution for me. Instead of applying the product with the applicator, I put some product on the back of my hand and use a Q-tip with the cotton removed to apply Beauty Genius along the eyeshadow line.

        I used this to keep my brows waterproof thru a pool day and hardly even submereged my face/head in the water and by the time I went to the restroom i brows were no longer colored in. Thank goodness I naturally have dark, full brows but I color them in on day's out.

                Comments about Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Genius:

                Ive searched for years for a product that would keep my brow powder in place all day. I have very sparse brows and use brow powder to create a full brow. I like the more natural look an angled brush and powder gives but it wipes away so easily. Unfortunately I dont like the look/difficulty application of pencils or gels/pommades despite their staying power. I was ecstatic to find a product that keeps my brow powder in place ALL day through humidity or sweat. I use it by applying a thin layer of the gel to the brow area and then applying my brow powder over it. The tackiness of the gel is similar to a post-it note...adhering your powder for an all day hold. Amazing! For me mixing the gel with the powder and then applying it was to much like a gel but using it as described it is a perfect fix!

                      No, Beauty Genius is designed for use with powder & loose pigment products. The good news is that Dipbrow Pomade already features a waterproof formula on its own!

                      Correct, Beauty Genius is not intended to be used as a primer, but as a bonding agent for loose pigments.

                  • Q:

                    If I use this to apply loose glitter, can it only be used with the glitter applied to bare eyelids, or can I first apply my loose pigments as normal - either dry or wet, and then use this to get glitter to stick on top of my shadow and complete the look. Reviews from other glitter glues lead me to believe they are an either/or situation- eyeshadow or glitter and that their glue either would not stick on top of shadow or would ruin the look of the shadow.

                      A:

                      Beauty Genius should be used to apply cosmetic grade glitter on bare eyelids; as it is a wet formula, applying it to shadow will change the appearance of the shadow itself.

                      A:

                      Typically, Beauty Genius should last approximately 6 months (depending on what you're using it for - if it's simply for brow powder, it should last months, but if you're using it to pack on glitter or powder pigments on the eyes, it could be finished in a week!).

                      Beauty Genius is a Loose Makeup Waterproofing Gel intended to seal and waterproof powder makeup, loose pigment, loose shadows, micas, and glitter. It is not indicated for use on the eyelashes, though it is ophthalmologist tested and hypoallergenic.

                      To waterproof your mascara, instead try Anastasia Beverly Hills Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat, which is applied after mascara:
