Recent two trend setting products for sure should be Highlighter and eyebrow Products. As far as I know Indian girls are blessed with beautiful eyebrows but most of us fail to groom it in a right way. Now talking about the grooming part it is not only going to a salon and getting our brows shaped, enhancing its beauty plays a vital part. We were quite reluctant about it and I can see much difference in recent days. All thanks to our Beauty Gurus. Today we will be seeing about such product from our own game changer brand “Maybelline “.
Ingredients: Stearic acid, rhus succedanea fruit cera/ rhus succedanea fruit wax, hydrogenated micro-crystalline wax, polybutene, ceresin, talc, hydrogenated castor oil, cera microcristallina/microcrystalline wax, silica, tocopherol, ascorbyl palmitate, (+/_ may contain ci 77491, ci 77492, ci 77499/ iron oxides, ci 77891/ titanium dioxide).

Product Description: “Creamy and super blend-able. This brow pencil gives you the most natural looking brows ever! With the improved formula, you can now have lasting brows up to 12 hours. Available in brown and grey.”
– Seamless blending

– Exclusive heat-proof
– Longwearing formula
How to use it:
STEP 1: Shape your brows with the pencil.
STEP 2: Use tiny and feather-light strokes to fill in your brows.
Packaging:Product comes in a normal old school pencil format and has to be sharpened to use it. And I don’t feel it as a con since I love using fresh product every time and I prefer this method over the retractable ones. And all the vital details are printed on the plastic cover which protects the product and once you remove it you lose the details which cannot be dodged by you. And this has to be one negative thing since we tend to lose all the important things about the product.
I just wish they could have provided a Sharpener and a spoolie along with the product but still its fine for the Price point they provide us.
Formula:As the product claims it is definitely smooth and not like very creamy and slightly falls on the waxier side and the latter quality of the product is very useful to work on the brows. Application is quiet easy and comfortable and I love the way it goes on flawlessly while applying it.
Pigmentation: I honestly appreciate the fact that it comes in 2 different shades Brown and Grey and not like jet black which will make us look weird. To talk about the Pigmentation it is not dense and provides a very light shade which is build-able with every stroke and again it is definitely appreciable factor as we can’t afford to make more mistakes while defining brows.
One more bonus point about this is it doesn’t budge or move away from its place and it’s a staple product in my every day routine and it stays intact for hours. I never reapplied even once in all these months.
I say “Yay” because:
- Smooth application
- Stays for a long time
- Travel friendly
- Comfortable to use
- Suitable for Indian Skin tones
- Defines brows effortlessly
I say “Nay” because:
- Could have provided Sharpener
- Few might prefer retractable ones
- Pigmentation could have been a bit on a stronger note
- Missing Spoolie here
Final Verdict:I would definitely recommend this product as it is pocket friendly and also does justice to all its claims
