Back in the day, there were only a few things women used to do when it came to makeup, one of them being brows. I remember that my mom and aunts always had the Lakme eyebrow pencil (the only one available in India back then) in their stash and I used to watch them intrigued while they softly filled and shaped their brows. Over the years I never really understood the whole hype about doing your brows, until recently, when somedays I just filled them a bit (had some extra time) and I realized that it made a massive difference!
I normally would use a matte brown powder, but when Maybelline came out with their Fashion Brow Duo Shaper I grabbed it asap and I loved using it. Of course, the Indian market has evolved since the Lakme pencil. We now have soft browns and greys available which look more natural.
Even then, there aren't that many brow products available in the Indian drugstore sadly. When the Maybelline Fashion brow got over, I looked around to try something new (not that I was not happy with the Maybelline one...the beauty blogger in me has to try out newer things!). And in came the L'Oreal Brow Artist Genius Kit.
