You know when you are completing that all important look, your makeup is perfect and it’s time for the finale? Brows, I’m talking about brows! Over the past few years getting ‘fleeky’ brows has been all the rage and why not? They change the face game big time. So I was thrilled to be able to try the new Maybelline Fashion Brow.
Naturally having dark brown hair I opted for the Brown colour. Here is how I got on…
Firstly I apologise. Myself and my beautician whom I adore have decided I need to grow some more brow. Therefore my brows aren’t as tidy as I would have liked for the images. So, no brow pictures. I was so super excited to try this Brow Pencil as I haven’t managed to get my hands on a Pencil yet, so the delivery was a glorious day. This product does not disappoint.
The pencil itself is gorgeous brown, no hidden red undertones at all. I generally find a lot of brow products have a reddish hue that I don’t get on with. This is brown. I found the consistency creamy to apply to face. Having trialed this I would advise starting with less and building.
The Pencil really allows you to build upon the shade and colour and really sculpt the brow. I for one will be practicing because I think after a few goes I will really get the hang of this and fall even more deeply in love. This one is such a huge thumbs up from me. I am a long term lover of Maybelline, so I had high expectations initially and I was really pleased.
To the Pencil I added a small dose of the Powder. I’m not a pro but I felt it really set the brow for me without a shiny sheen that tends to happen with eyebrow setting products. The Powder cemented the brows in place without looking harsh on the face.
This product is something I would probably use when pushed for time or I’d keep it in my handbag as a Plan B. I love my brows to be defined and stand out from the face and I found with the pencil that although it works well, I just didn’t feel the wow factor. When I was removing my makeup trying to take the pencil off the eyebrow area was really difficult! It is definitely a product that stays put. I think this is where Maybelline have really pulled it out of the bag with products that have real longevity.
This can be found HERE to order online. They have 2 colours and because the product is so buildable you can guarantee to get the definition you want. The fabulous bit is that it’s for Rs.245. As an affordable and long lasting product I think this will make a fabulous staple in any makeup collection.
