So many products are being launched every other day now, but every once in a while there comes a product that catches your attention so brilliantly...that you leave other things and make a quick run to the nearest beauty store!
The latest launch by Maybelline, Fashion Brow Duo Shaper was one such product that got me really excited and I just had to try it out!
Blame the lack of brow grooming products in the Indian Market. Well done Maybelline! We finally have one!
"Get naturally -defined, fuller eyebrows with Maybelline's Fashion Brow Duo Shaper, without threading, trimming or plucking your eyebrows! Our first ever 2-in-1 brow liner comes with a slim pencil tip to shape your brows and a powder tip for a soft finish. Pencil shapes, powder finishes, 2 steps to wow!"
The Brow Shaper comes in a sleek black plastic packaging. It is a dual ended pencil, with the retractable brow pencil at one end (with a snap on cap), and a sponge tip powder applicator at the other end (with a color coded screw on cap).
It is available in 2 shades - Brown & Grey (a lighter black). I got the brown one.
The pencil is really skinny (0.25mm I believe) which gives a good control for you to shape & define precisely. Texture of the pencil is on the dry side with sheer pigmentaion, which is an advantage again in this case since a creamy brow pencil with great pigmentation, will just end up looking too stark and result in harsh lines.
You cannot go overboard easily with this one, making it perfect for beginners too.
The sponge tip applicator is soft with a pointed tip, the powder is actually inside the screw on cap. It fills in the brows well.
The pencil is not really waterproof, but it manages to last through the day well. It does not smudge or transfer. I have thick brows to begin with, so I just define them a bit (using short strokes) and fill in the gaps with the powder.Follow this up by running a spoolie (or clean old mascara wand) and you are done!
I am sorry for not including a before/after pic, it has been a very rainy day today but I really wanted to let you all know about this product asap! Yes I am super excited with this one!
I will put in a before/after eyebrow pic soon! Promise!
Price : 245 INR
Lots of love to Maybelline for coming out with this! We finally have a great drugstore brow product! At an affordable price and good shades! *I hope Maybelline never discontinues this one*
Should you buy it? YES! I highly recommend it and have already bought one for mom as well :)
