Better brow-lieve it
When it comes to brows, nobody does it better than Anastasia Beverly Hills.

It’s now time for something new, and ABH is set to launch the Dipbrow Gel - their newest brow product. A hybrid of two of their bestsellers, this highly pigmented waterproof brow gel helps add volume brows and features a smudge-proof formula! Starting March 7, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Gel will be available in stores and retail at $18 each for 11 shade options. Shop ABH here.
