Colourpop Brow Colour Review in Dope Taupe

Colourpop Brow Colour Dope Taupe Review Makeup in Manila

Did Colourpop just create a dupe for my holy grail brow product?

Colourpop, one of my favorite brands, has done it again. They've made me buy another one of their products and I'm not feeling any guilty at all. Don't get me wrong, I am still madly in love with my Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade... It's just that I changed my color a little bit and instead of buying another ABH, I thought it was the perfect time to test out the Colourpop Precision Brow Colour.

I bought this on Instagram at @colourpopph for PHP 450.

It's a little bit smaller compared to the ABH Dip Brow Pomade and it only contains 3 grams while ABH had 4 grams of product.

I'm loving the little reminder in the box to always close the jar tightly. That was something I forgot to do with my ABH, and I had to learn that lesson the hard way.

I didn't opt for a swatch because what you see is what you definitely get. It's literally the same color as when it's inside the jar.

This selfie was obviously taken before I cut my hair short. They say that Laguna is supposed to be colder compared to the metro, but it's so, so hot and humid in here that I can't even imagine how hot it is in other areas of the country. Plus, I don't go to the office anymore, so sadly, no more free AC for me. Lol.

Colourpop Precision Brow Colour Review
Dope Taupe is described as a soft taupe and is the most versatile among all the shades. I find it not too warm nor too dark, it's very, very neutral, and I'd describe it almost as a grey. I think it's the perfect shade to buy if you don't know what to get. It's also described as water-resistant and an all-day-wear brow colour.

Packaging is very similar to Anastasia Beverly Hills, except it's a little more minimalistic and cleaner to look at. It comes in a clear-glass jar with a plastic lid which is very ABH too, but I just remember how it felt when I first opened my ABH pomade. ABH just had this feeling that you're really getting a high-end product. It's weird and maybe it's just me looking at the classy black and gold design that it has.

Another thing that I noticed was the texture. The Colourpop Brow Colour was so much smoother compared to ABH (which felt more clay-like) in terms of application. I always have to be careful on how much product I get because a little goes a long, long way. It's very pigmented and smooth and it's just a dream to apply on the brows. You also don't have to worry if you're in a humid country because this brow product can definitely stay all-day. I find that it's water-resistant, sweat-resistant, and no need for re-touch at all.

I actually like this product but I won't say that this is a dupe of my ABH mainly because of the texture. The ABH felt more pomade and was a little tacky and clay-like... Meanwhile, this Colourpop Brow Colour felt more of a brow cream which I guess is the reason why it's so smooth to apply. This doesn't have any scent and I've been using this for months now and I feel like I've only used up 95% of it. This will last me probably a year or more as I prefer natural-looking brows and I'm just mostly filling in the sparse areas.

If you're thinking and having second thoughts about whether you should try this or not, I would just say go for it and buy it. The quality is so good that it's basically more than what you're paying for. It's a dream to apply and it stays all-day. This is not a dupe, but still definitely a great product from Colourpop yet again.
