This new version takes all the good things from the OG and improves the hold and endurance, all with a super creamy consistency.
This cream pomade has become a favorite of mine. It has a firm hold, a natural shine, and the versatility to accommodate both slick and textured looks. Don't sleep on this stuff!
I had a problem with my first order (see my other review) and Lodestar quickly shipped a replacement. Went with the Horizon version of Aurora.
Solid product, spreads easily in the hands with a little rubbing to give it some heat. Applies very easily to wet hair, and with some minimal tugging to dry hair.
Hold is solid for about half day - I agree with the 4/5 rating for hold, and I just run a comb back through or finger brush it and it's back to perfect or can be restyled.
Smells great and again, customer service is top notch.
Will be buying more.
Shipped and received quickly. Noticed that the product looked cracked on the bottom (looking through the clear bottom of the jar). First scoop seemed dry. Spreading it in my hands led to tearing/rolling of the product- into small balls with an uneven consistency. Markedly different from the smooth creaminess on the YouTube review. Hold was minimal. I have given it 3 more shots, trying to rub it around in the jar to build up a stable consistency or in my hand, but same ultimate results - minimal hold. Smells good, though.
Maybe the jar want sealed and it dried out?
It sounds as though this jar may have not been sealed tight during shipping, causing the cracking and dry scoop. A replacement jar has been sent to the customer.
Not a fan....didn't work for me! But matte paste is fantastic
Sorry Aurora didn’t work out for you, but I’m glad that you’re enjoying Pioneer Matte Paste. We appreciate your business!
