Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper – Brown : Swatches, Review


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.

    but yes the dryness in the texture is a issue. It requires multiple passes.

    I am currently using this but it takes a little effort to show up and the colour is a little grey for my warm yellow tone.

    sounds amazing 🙂

  10. September 20, 2015 / 6:52 pm

    seemes like a really good budget option for tending brows…

  11. September 20, 2015 / 7:08 pm

    For thicker brows it doesn’t show up … wish they launch more shades

  12. September 20, 2015 / 7:11 pm

    This is a must-have product!

  13. September 20, 2015 / 8:07 pm

    I really want to try this, have not yet started using any products for my brows, wish it was available in Finland, but will check out the Rimmel one

  14. September 20, 2015 / 8:32 pm

    I use sleek brow kit..will give this a try

  15. September 20, 2015 / 10:30 pm

    I love the effect this gives. Picked up the grey one recently.

  16. September 21, 2015 / 12:03 am

    I am yet to try this one! I feel grey is safer than this brown shade. And not having an angled brush and a spoolie is a con coz I just can’t do my brows without them 🙁

  17. September 21, 2015 / 9:48 am

    i might give this a shot….looks good for my no so full brows!
