Brow Pomades/Gelcreme Swatches and Comparisons

L to R: MAC True Brunette fluidline brow gelcreme from the Wash and Dry collection ($16), NYX Brunette tame & frame pomade ($7), Anastasia Soft Brown dipbrow ($18). 

They are all VERY similar in color and wear, but the slight differences are as follows, True Brunette has a slightly warmer undertone and is the most long wearing  and opaque of the three, Brunette has the most neutral color and lasts just as long on the brows as dipbrow, Soft Brown has a coolest undertone; but just barely and usually lasts a good 8 hours before it starts to fade. 

I was quite surprised at how great of a dupe the NYX pomade was!! $7 vs $16/$18 which would you choose?

Until next time,
