Most Helpful Positive Review IN LOVE!!!!!!!!
Let me start by saying, years ago... I started using Too Faced brow pallet which was fab. I then graduated to Benefit's brow pallet which was my go to. I loved the pomade/wax texture of the pigment from benefit. BUT...I am a student and I can't afford that price on the regular. I was between trying this and the mini pallet that has the pressed powder and wax separate.
THANK GOD I CHOSE THIS.
This is possibly one of the best purchases I have ever made in a very long time. I have medium skin and super dark hair. I went with the espresso. PERFECT SHADE <3 I work at a hospital and it lasts through my 13 hr shift without smudging! (I prepped my brows with a bit pf primer though :)) )
I highly recommend this product to anyone!!!!

I decided to do an update on this product review because when I first purchased this I loved it. But that was when I was simply darkening my existing brows. When I started using it to create the shape that I like since my brows are very sparce and due to overplucking my arch no longer grows it became a nightmare. It smudges, drags/pulls/skips over the skin and hairs, it's difficult to clean up with concealer/makeup remover, and if you're trying to create shape and definition it goes on so lightly that you need to darken your lines up and when you do that it clumps, makes a mess, and always smudges outside of your existing line. Another con is that unless you intend on closing the pot after every dip into the product it will harden and become even harder to work with due to drying out quickly when exposed to oxygen. I have only had this product for 3 months and it is already so hard that it's almost impossible to work with. There's no happy medium with how much product to use on your brush, it's either too much and creates dark smudges or it's too light and requires going over a few times, leading to mistakes. The best way to use this is to set it with a brow powder/eye shadow of your choosing or it will look very shiny and unnatural. If you have thick brows to work with this product might be easier for you to use, but if you have sparce thin brows and want to create shape/define and achieve a natural look don't bother.

This was my first brow pomade. Didn't want to cough up the money for Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) so I got this. It worked great at first, but after maybe 5 uses, it dried up so bad that multiple liner and angle brushes just pick up clumps. Throwing away. I had previously purchased the ABH black eyeliner and it was worth every penny. It glides on smooth and was waterproof so I finally tried the brow pomade. Again, WORTH EVERY PENNY. NYX is a good price point but just didn't work for me.
Affordable and easy to use

I do my brows everyday, its a big part of my makeup routine and this brow pomade works great for me and is definitely budget friendly
Dont knock it til you try it!!

I was superrr hesitant about buying this product after reading that reviews but i went for it anyway and... i want NOT DISAPPOINTED at all!!! I originally use the anastasia brow pomade and honestly it was my fault i would sometimes leave it out and it got super dry and crumbly but this one just wow! my brows look so amazing and it goes on so smooth and looks amazing after i conceal them with my tarte concealer. Im naturally a blonde so my eyebrows are super light so i definitely give them a shape and color them in darker i also dyed my hair to a darker color as well. But ladies and gents its not disappointing at all especially for its price! definitely will buy again!
Love love love

Omg the worst brow product I've ever used, even though I love Nyx this ain't it.
Very nice product!
Abby from Mentor OH
I recommend this product, it has a very nice consistency, applies very nicely and the color was very nice! Also stays on!
Dry and Crumbly
Madi from Michigan
It's okay, I guess. I just found it to be dry and crumbly. Chunks of the pomade would stick to my brush even when using a light hand. The elf lock on liner is so much better and more pigmented for only $4.
My brow staple
Jevene from Orlando
I love love this product it gives the most natural look to compliment a and enhance your brows only a lil bit is needed to achieve the best look. I do like to finish with a pencil just to define it all but of this I always keep 2 extra on hand.
Just okay - dries out before you can use it all
kb from Taylor Mill, KY
My eyebrows are wiry and in some spots, very patchy. Whenever I open a brand new container of Nyx tinted brow pomade, it's amazing - smooth, creamy, easy to work with, easy to control how much goes on the brush, etc. It makes my eyebrows look great and I get a ton of compliments. However, I never ever get to use the full amount because it always dries up so quickly and gets lumpy. When that happens, too much pomade gets picked up on the brush, it goes on way too thick, and it crumbles. It's not like I leave the lid off for long; maybe 10 minutes at a time while I do my eyebrows. I'm not sure how to fix this. Do I need to heat up the pomade somehow to smooth it out again or what? It's just disappointing that I've been using this product for years (because of the price, and it is great at first) but the pomade always seems to dry up prematurely.
Good but not Great
Kirbbygurrrl from Grand Rapids MI
It's super thin and creamy and pigment payoff it very minimum. As someone who loves the KVD brow pomade and was looking for a cheap replacement I would say with confidence this is not it. It doesn't last long and again the pigment is barely there.
Must have on to leave house!!
Brandy from Michigan
Love this! Used with a small angled brush. I have platinum blonde hair and use charcoal. My brows are darker, not blonde. It's a Pomade and powder in one!!
Not buying again
kayla from anaheim plaza
dried super quick, never again.
I would try something different next time
Karla from Houston
I wanted to try something new because my Anastacia pomade was expired already, I wanted to try something better and I've been using it for almost a week now it's okay, but I'll try something else whenever this one expires
Easy to Use, Great Tint
Paddison from OR
This was east to use and the perfect color, not too bold but still strong. Stayed on nicely with no smudge.
Exactly what I needed
Donna from South El Monte, CA
I use this on my eyebrows to help fill them in the shape I need them to be. Over the years, my eyebrows have stopped growing in thick for some reason, but I still have to shave them in the shape I want. This is great for doing that. It is the perfect shade and everything for a person who isn't a makeup professional.
Just too warm for me
Cuellar from San Mateo, CA
I did find this product to be very long lasting, but my issue was that the color was too warm for me. None of the color options are neutral, so they do not work for everyone.
Good for price
Leslie from Phoenix
Good dupe for anastasia. i will say it is a bit lighter pigment and will use more product
Eli from Los Angeles
This pomade is hella dry and it honesty not worth it .
doesn't last, waxy, chunky, dries up super fast
Julia from Chicago
Worst brow product I've ever used.
not as dark
mk from oregon
thought it would be like a dark black
doesn't show up
kavya from mn
i doesn't show up and when it does- it looks like a brown piece of chalk smeared my face. it's too creamy too the point where it doesn't even stay on the face but just looks like a preschooler colored on my face.
wouldn't buy it again
Sam from Braintree, MA
It was really nice for a couple days when I first bought it, but after a while it becomes clumpy. It also is really light on your brows, so most of the time, you don't really notice a big different. Also its hard to get the desire shape because it doesn't pick up pigments that well.
i love this! looks so nice!
liberty jole from St. Louis, MO
this pomade works so well, a little though. it's the only product that matches my goldish blonde hair.
BCV from Midwest
CHUNKY. Not creamy at all and comes off so chunky and extremely patchy. Don't even bother.
