A while back I received the Anastasia Hypercolor Brow & Hair Powder to try out. It’s a great way to have instant color gratification, as you can use it on your hair or your brows. It comes in 5 vibrant colors.
TALC, KAOLIN, ZINC STEARATE, MINERAL OIL, DIMETHICONE, ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE, LAUROYL LYSINE, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, HEXYLENE GLYCOL, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, PHENOXYETHANOL, MAY CONTAIN/PEUT CONTENIR: (+/-) MICA, TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), RED 7 LAKE(CI 15850) AND RED 27 LAKE (CI 45410), BISMUTH OXYCHLORIDE(CI 77163)
This set of 5 powders comes in the following shades:
In the Pink – super bright hot pink
Ultra-Violet – sort of a heathered violet
Teal Tornado – vibrant teal
Electric Blue – nearly neon blue
Mega Watt Green – chartreuse
In the Pink is not intended for eye use, so use it on your brows at your own risk.
Ultra-Violet is the only color out of the 5 with poor pigmentation. It was really hard to get it to show up and I found it disappointing.
Teal Tornado would be perfect for when I’m rockin’ teal locks. It’s a great, vibrant matte shade.
Electric Blue was so bright, I was thoroughly impressed.
Mega Watt Green was also great.
All of these colors can be used safely on your hair to add a pop of color without spending the time to lighten and color your hair (which is typically what I do).
For your brows, you can apply directly with a brow brush. You can also use a brow wax to make the color more intense, and then set it with clear brow gel. In the picture below, I just applied in the Pink with a brow brush and didn’t set it.
You can see how it matches my hair perfectly.
I think the Hypercolor Brow powders are the brightest thing that Anastasia has ever created and I absolutely love them. If you want bright brows, or you want to add a lock of bright hair but don’t want to have the commitment of bleaching and dyeing, this is definitely the way to go. The only color I would skip is Ultra-Violet, since it’s so disappointing with its pigmentation. The rest of the colors live up to their name.
What do you think of the Anastasia Hypercolor Brow and Hair Powders? Where would you wear them?
