I am always in search of something for my brows coz m never ever satisfied with my brows. At one moment I find them thick then other moment thin! Last month toh I was sporting 1 thin and 1 thick brow for more than 20 days. these parlour girls you know are really difficult to deal with! Anyways I already have had thin scarce brows so eyebrow pencil/powder is must for me. Earlier I was using the NYX Brow Powder (reviewed here) but since the day I have got this one, am hooked to this.
What Maybelline Says:
Now it’s time to make your eyebrows a part of your eye makeup routine for an enhanced and finished look. Eyebrows will now be precise till the tail as with Maybelline New York’s first ever eyebrow pencil. The Fashion Brow Pencil is an all-in-one pen for your eyebrow that gives you the sharpness of a 0.2mm micro lead fixing pencil and the softness of filling natural mineral powder. It is the ultimate duo shaper that gives you ultra-soft precision for perfectly defined eyebrows up to 12 hours. It fixes gaps and blends seamlessly for smooth, stunning brows.
Price: Rs. 245/-
Packaging: its a dual sided pencil with rotatable pencil on one side and sponge with powder on other. Its a plastic pencil and color coded on the powder side. I like this concept of pencil and powder in same pencil! Good one.
Shade: I have this in brown. Its a nice dark brown perfect for Indian skin tone. I have highlights in my hair and always prefer brown pencils over black ones. They also have a grey one in this, which is not that dark black but a decent light black.
Texture: the pencil is bit dry on swatching. Infact when I went to buy it, the SA was swatching this in my hand and it was way too dry, so she asked the other SA that is it this much dry only or the tester has dried out!! Lol. But on the brows its completely fine. The powder side is very soft and fill the gaps well.
This is by far one of the best eyebrow pencils I have tried. Yes! Its that good.
The pencil side is used to make the outline and then the powder side is used smoothen the lines and fill in the gaps. The texture is fine for brows, had it been creamy, it would have smudged but the dryness in it makes it stay there for long. The pigmentation of this brown shade is pretty good, the color shows up in 1 swipe. Even the powder is very pigmented.
Despite being this pigmented, it never looked stark or highly made up. It gives me the most naturally done brows I have ever had.
Once put, it stays the full day, yes full day without budging at all.
