Anastasia Brow Powder Duo Swatches & Review

anastasia brow powder duo swatches

One of my favorite eyebrow products is Anastasia’s Brow Powder Duo, which retails for $22 and comes in six shades.  I bought mine over a year ago, have been using it regularly (several times a week), and still haven’t hit pan!  I have a couple different eyebrow products that I regularly use – I think that this Browlash pen is my favorite in terms of the final look – but I still use the Anastasia most frequently, because it’s the quickest and easiest to apply.

When I was initially deciding what color to purchase, I had a hard time deciding on the shade, and I couldn’t find good quality swatches online. So, I recently went to Sephora to swatch and photograph all the shades available.  I took these swatches in natural light, outside the store.

Ebony Duo, Strawburn Duo

Ebony is a deep neutral brown, and Strawburn is a reddish blonde.

If you’re looking for a brow powder, I highly recommend this one – the quality is great.  The powder is pigmented and smooth, and I only need a tiny bit to do my brows.  It lasts all day on me.  Brunette is the perfect depth for me – I use mostly the lighter shade with a touch of the darker shade – though I do wish it was a touch cooler. I could probably also use the darker shade in Medium Ash, but I don’t think the lighter shade would work on me.

Later today I’ll be posting comparison pictures of my eyebrows with the various different products I use.

  • Such great swatches, Emi! I can see why Anastasia’s brow colors are so raved about. Aside from those with red or auburn hair, brow colors with red tones never seem to look natural, yet there’s so many out there, so I really appreciate the ash tones in Anastasia’s line. The golden blonde looks like it would work really well for me.
