Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper in Dark Brown Review +Swatches
Here's a review on Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Eyebrow in Dark Brown.
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all Maybelline counters in department stores, supermarkets, and drugstores nationwide
Maybelline's beginning to change the brow game in the drugstore category with their latest brow makeup collection-I don't know any drugstore brand that offers such an extensive range of brow products! With that, let me present you the new Fashion Brow Duo Shaper, a pencil that enhances and defines your beauty arches. Other drugstore dual- ended brow products normally have a pencil and spoolie, but Maybelline's version comes with two brow products instead. What a good deal, especially for budget queens!
MAYBELLINE FASHION BROW DUO SHAPER IN DARK BROWN IN DETAIL
Create full yet soft brows with this newest from Maybelline. Fashion Brow Duo Shaper features a pencil with a 2mm slim tip for precise definition and silicone powder to give the illusion of thick brows. Locally, the shades we have available are Light Brown and Dark Brown.
The pencil has a very good width and it fits my medium- sized hands snuggly. The photo on the left is the brow powder on a pointy sponge applicator-if you're wondering where to find the brow powder in the packaging, it's in the cap of the applicator. The photo on the right is the precise automatic pencil: It's pretty creamy and glides on smoothly, albeit it needs to be warmed up before usage.
Swatches and detailed review after the break.
I was surprised to find out upon swatching this product that the shades of the pencil and powder are completely different from each other: The pencil has a taupe-gray hue while the powder has a medium brown hue. This color difference, in my opinion, is good and bad at the same time: It's bad because you won't get a uniform color payoff and good because you literally get two, different brow products that you can use on rotation and depending on your mood or the look you're gunning for on a certain day.
Both products have medium to heavy pigmentation and yield a soft matte payoff.
MAYBELLINE FASHION BROW DUO SHAPER IN DARK BROWN IN ACTION
With Brow Pencil
With Brow Powder
The brow powder tends to clump for a bit on hair strands though so apply sparingly and distribute with a spoolie before layering it on. The pencil's fine and I did not encounter any problem with it. Despite my slight issue with the powder, I can still achieve a naturally full brow look with this product.
How's the staying power? It's long- wearing, but not waterproof-it's suitable for daily use and can pretty much withstand a bit of oil and sweat.
Fashion Brow Duo Shaper is pretty good and it's just right for its price-it's a product that I'd consider as a temporary replacement if I leave my HG brow products at home or lose them.
I recommend this product to those who want to sport high fashion, ala-Cara Delevigne brows without spending too much.
