Anastasia Hypercolor Brow & Hair Powder: Review & Tutorial

Today's post is a two-in-one review/tutorial for the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Hypercolor Brow & Hair Powders. I'm going to show you how you can easily achieve temporary dip dyed locks in five fun colors or mix and match for awesome ombre effects! Keep reading to learn the simple secrets to trendy, temporary hair color!

Watch the video to see the product(s) in action and learn some tips for applying them or skip the tutorial and just read the written review below. They both contain essentially the same info.

I've reviewed Anastasia Beverly Hills before so if you want to know more about this company then I definitely recommend checking out that post. I was so in love with their products that when the samples they sent me ran out I went straight to Sephora to stock up on more. If that's not an endorsement, I don't know what is. Their brow wiz pencil is to. die. for. I never use anything else. Anyways, I've come to expect high quality from ABH and these Hypercolors are certainly no exception. Here's a little info on exactly what they are and what they can be used for.

"Wipe on, wash out color. Instant Gratification. Get an intense flash of color without dyeing, bleaching, or spending hours in the salon. Apply to brows with an angled brush or rub the powder onto the tips of your hair or streak it for outrageously fabulous looks that wash out with ease. Set with hair spray when applying to hair or Brow Gel when applying to the brows." - Anastasia Beverly Hills 

They are $12.50/each and come in five fabulous colors; Mega-Watt Green, Electric Blue, Teal Tornado, Ultraviolet and In the Pink. 

Top: Teal Tornado, In the Pink, Megawatt Green
Bottom: Ultraviolet & Electric Blue

All shades sold seperately

All but In the Pink can be used as both hair & brow color (in the pink is not approved for use around the eye area). I didn't bother with swatches because you can see how they look in the video. My personal favorites were Electric Blue & In the Pink but they are all individually awesome.

Okay, so in general - how did I find my experience with Anastasia's Hypercolors

They get points for: All the colors work on all hair colors, reasonably priced when comparing to permanent alternatives, amazing pigmentation, extremely easy to use & easy to blend, washes out like a dream so there are no worries about staining skin/clothes/hair. All in all a high quality product (as always) which yields great results that get lots of compliments

They lose points for: This stuff is HELLA messy. The fall out on this is insane and it will get all over the place if you're not careful. It's a good thing this stuff washes out as easily as it does, thank god. I'd also like to see them expand the selection of colors but these five are a really great start.

Final Words: If you love fun, funky hair but have commitment issues when it comes to color then this stuff is an absolute must have/try, at LEAST once!


  1. Cute! Definitely want to try this out!

  2. great review. im gunna check these out. thanx for the vid!

  3. OOOH i've always wanted pink or red highlights - I have black hair so I thought that it'd be fun to just do something with it! Thanks for the heads up! Can I get this at Sephora or do I have to order from the Anastasia site? x

    1. Fun idea! This would be perfect for that!

      That's a good question. I know Anastasia is sold in Sephora but I'm not sure if these are available there. I would try their website but you can also e-mail them and ask about in store availability. They have pretty good customer service and should get back to you fairly quickly.

  4. Hello dear, Your blog really awesome! Love it! <3
    Btw, wanna follow each other via GFC? Let me know ;)

  5. I wish these were available around here. They look amazing and your tutotial has been very helpful :) !

    1. I believe Anastasia Beverly Hills ships internationally so you should be able to get them wherever you are!

  6. Great Video! I actually had such a bad experience with Chalk before that I just totally gave up on temp hair coloring... but this looks much better and longer lasting. Thanks for answering the questions everybody has in mind and... showing us how to put int on! awesome!

  7. I have been wanting to try these but I fear they won't show up well on black hair. Also, I see what you're saying about these being messy.....

  8. hii great video, loved it! i wanted to know what kind of hair spray did you use.? is there anything particular?
