BEAUTY BATTLES (SPEND VS. SAVE): Best Brow Powder-Brow Pencil Duos
One of my most favorite brow products EVAAAR is the Brow duo, specifically the one that combines brow powder and brow pencil simply because these are the brow products I love using to intensify my arches; The duo format pleases my ever changing makeup moods and preferences as well. :D
Two good brow powder-brow pencil duos I have tried are by K-Palette and Maybelline. I love both and I'd have to tell you that this blog post is really hard to write for me; it's like making me choose between my two kids haha, but in the spirit of Beauty Battles, one can only win.
K-Palette, Maybelline, may the odds be ever in your favor! :D
K-Palette Real Lasting 2 Way Eyebrow features an eye pencil and eye powder that comes in three shades; Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper features the same products and comes in 2 shades only.
The width on both pens is universal: they fit my fingers snuggly and surface ain't slippery. K-Palette is just too long and Maybelline's pen has the right length for me.
Point Goes To: Maybelline
K-Palette's brow pencil's semi- creamy texture allows me to draw clean, uninterrupted lines. Maybelline's brow pencil is a bit hard and needs to be warmed up before usage, but when you finally do, it then glides on easily. Brow pencils on both products yield light to heavy coverage.
Point Goes To: K-Palette
K-Palette's brow powder has a nice, creamy texture, but it doesn't cling onto brow strands and and naturally defines brows. Maybelline's pretty creamy and pigmented too, but it has the tendency to clump on hair strands.
Point Goes to: K-Palette
L-R: K-Palette, Maybelline
K-Palette's brow powder and pencil comes in the same shade; in a way, this negates the 'two products for the price of one' concept. Maybelline's brow powder and pencil comes in complementing shades, and to me, it's literally getting two products for the price of one because of the product and shade difference. I'm actually fine with both and I acknowledge that this won't be an issue for everyone.
Point Goes To: It's a tie!
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY:
K-Palette retails at P795.00 and is available in Beauty Bar Stores and Beauty Bar online and Maybelline is at P399.00 and available in leading department stores, drugstores, and supermarkets.
Point Goes To: Go figure! :D
Both of K-Palette's products are excellent, offer more variety, and I almost forgot to mention that formula is waterproof. Maybelline's powder is good, but the brow pencil can still be improve and formula is not waterproof.
Point Goes To: K-Palette
Brows are really K-Palette's business so that's why they make some of the best brow products I have tried. Maybelline, on the other hand, is quite new at the brow game and I know (knowing how this brand continues to improve their products) they will get into the groove of it soon enough; I actually think Maybelline's Fashion Brow Duo is good for its price, but for now, I give the crown to K-Palette!
