Maybelline India’s newest launch has created quite a splash! Brow pencils have been such a rarity in India, its no wonder the new Fashion Brow Duo Shaper by Maybelline promptly got sold out right after its launch! They’ve launched 2 variants – Brown and Grey and I’m reviewing the Brown variant today.
Price : Rs 245
Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper Brown – Review
The brow shaper is dual ended and contains a mechanical brow pencil on one end and a powder on the other end. The pencil end is really fine and is meant to define the outer shape of the brows while the soft powder end is meant for filling in the shape carved out in the previous step. The pencil end has quite a stiff and dry texture – always desirable in brow products as you don’t want to go overboard. The color however is a very light greyish brown so it barely shows up on my skin.
My brows are naturally quite full and need minimal filling. My hair is quite dark as well so this pencil and powder show up with difficulty. I’ve tried this on people with fainter brows though and it works really well. Because of the light color and dry texture, it looks very natural so people with faint, scanty brows would find this the perfect match. For me, it takes a lot of work to get the color to show up so I just reach for my Rimmel brow pencil instead which is marginally creamier and darker in color.
Would I recommend this? Yes! Its affordable, easily available and gives you a very natural brow. If you have really dark hair/full brows like me though, I’d suggest going for the Rimmel or Maxfactor one instead.
Rating : 4/5
Swatches – This is the color that shows up after several high pressure passes. In a single pass, the color barely transfers on my skin.
