Thanks to Chick Advisor (#GotitFree), I recently received three new brow products from Maybelline. It’s been a while since I reviewed a drugstore item and since brow products are one of my makeup weaknesses, I was very curious to try them.
BROW DRAMA SHAPING CHALK EYEBROW POWDER (Blonde)
– 5 Shades Available –
I have mixed feelings about this powder. The product by itself is good but the concept needs to be revisited!
† This powder doesn’t budge – Amazing staying power if you prime your eyebrow,
† Easiest application ever,
† Affordable (around 9$🇨🇦).
† Too much product comes out and way too fast – too much product results in thick, bold eyebrows and since normally, I have thin, overplucked brows, it gives me an unnatural look and changes my makeup drastically,
† Messy – If you don’t tap out the excess powder, it will be fallout galore,
† The Blonde shade is too dark. The result is too obvious for my personal taste,
† NOT for thin eyebrows, unless you use a different brush to apply it.
There are definitely people out there who rock the dark, thick brows and who will love this product however, it is not for me. But for the new trend of bushy brows, this product will definitely do a great job!
Rating: 3/5; it’s not a bad product at all if you are careful with the application.
BROW PRECISE FIBER VOLUMIZER EYEBROW GEL (Blonde)
– 5 Shades Available –
† Affordable (around 10$🇨🇦).
† The gel by itself is ok, if you use a little bit.
† Once it dries, the product is VERY flakey,
† AGAIN, the blonde, lighter shade is too dark for me,
† Doesn’t make my brows appear fuller at all,
† Very unnatural and ultra-matte.
The gel tends to clog the brush and goes on too thick leaving small globs of product. More than once, I had to remove the gel from one of my brows (with an eye makeup remover) and start over. The only way I could use this product is by dipping my ABH #12 brush into the gel and apply it into my eyebrows. When doing so, it works but what’s the point of using this product if you have to add all these extra steps! This product is possibly better suited for thicker eyebrows with only a few sparse areas to fill.
BROW PRECISE MICRO PENCIL (Blonde)
– 4 Shades Available –
† The tip is really fine – it makes it easier to define your brows. It doesn’t apply harshly, and you can definitely build it up.
† Built-in sharpener,
† Affordable (around 9$🇨🇦),
† It goes on very smoothly.
†I don’t like the spoolie on the opposite end of this product. It’s of lesser quality compared to most other spoolies that come with brow products,
† The blonde color is a tad too dark (This is the theme of the day).
† The worst downfall is that once you twist up the product, it won’t twist back down. You have to be really careful with your maneuver, just roll up a tiny bit at a time,
† I don’t see this product lasting more than 1 month – Compared to my favorite ABH Brow Wiz who lasts about 3 months.
Rating: 4/5: It’s a good brow pencil but unfortunately, I already found my Holy Grail. It has some great features but the big drowbacks are the shade selection as the Blonde is too dark and the unusual spoolie.
