Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper Brown & Grey Review, Swatches, EOTD & Price in India

Maybelline is one brand which always keeps me on my toes, with new launches every now and then. The recently launched Maybelline Nudes Eyeshadow Palette is already creating waves in the beauty hemisphere. I try and grab all the newly launched products they come up with. Today I would like to introduce to yet another hot new launch by them. The Fashion Brow Duo Shaper in both shades Brown and Grey. These are first of its kind brow shapers launched by any drugstore brand in India. We have a few other brands which make eye brow styling and filling products, but they are either not available everywhere or are simply expensive. Now Maybelline has covered all those gaps and launched these amaze pens which are not only easily available but are super duper affordable too.

See it Through my Eyes

My brows are neither full nor sparse, they are just the way I like them to be, but I wish they were little longer. I usually don't fill my brows on a daily basis. However, I make it a point to use it when I do heavy eyemakeup, or whenever I want my eyes to be the point of attraction, those brows gotta look good.

Packaging
The design of the fashion brow duo is quite thoughtful and user friendly, these are housed in a pen form rather than a kit or compact powder form like most available in the market. The pen design is not only travel friendly, but very easy to apply as its so handy and any beginner can apply it with ease. As it’s a duo shaper, it is has a pencil side and a powder side. The pencil side has a click lock cap while the powder side is sponge tipped and locks with a screw color coded cap. The body is glossy black plastic . One end is pencil and the other end is powder. The pencil form is easy to use as any other brow pencil. The brow powder with sponge applicator is fun to use; I like to screw it up and use it, which extracts the right amount of product to fill up my brows. The color coding caps are great as the body is anyway black in case you own both the shades it's easier to locate the one which you want to wear on a particular day.

Texture
When I first used the pencil side, I realized it is little dry and draggy but that’s how it should be I guess. Why, you ask? Well because eyebrows are not to be painted or overdone, being a little overboard or some negligence can make one look ghastly. Hence one gets careful to use it if its not smooth to apply because the smooth application doesnt sway you with it, you are alarmed and awake while trying to build the color.  Did you say, Strange logic?  Well its my logic Blum 3
The powder part is fun to apply as it comes out beautifully from the sponge tip applicator and feels smooth and soft on my brows. I love the final look it gives me.

Pigmentation
The general drill with pigmentation is the more the better, but its just the opposite with a brow filler. We don’t want to end of looking scary and ghastly; Maybelline knows this and does just right with this beauty. The pigmentation is sheer but buildable. If you are not an expert in brow art then this is it for you, this brow pen is easy to use gives you buildable pigmentation in a pen form. Life is simple right?

Color
Grey: The grey pen is charcoal color, which is neither black nor grey. It’s the right color for those incomplete and light brows. It gives the right color and coverage to those sparse brows. This color will suit ladies with jet black hair to make the brow and the hair look in sync. It is quite a suitable shade for Indian women, as almost all of us have black hair, except we choose to color the hair.
Brown: The brown color is best suited for brown or colored hair.  It is a sheer brown copper color, which blends and matches the into the brows, giving it a very natural look. In case you are wondering no color eyebrow pencil suits due to your colored hair, well now you can’t complaint with this brown variant. Personally I have slightly colored hair, so I prefer this brown shade over the black.

Staying Power
This brow shaper is my ultimate love these days. It scores perfectly in all the grounds. No points for guessing, it excels in the lasting power too. My brows look full and healthy, throughout the day, until they meet the makeup remover at night. Imagine. The formula is waterprrof, what else do we need in life?

How do I use it?
As I get the access to both pencil and powder with this duo shaper, I make a rough outline across the brow with the pencil side, and then I fill the gaps here and there. I give a light brush with the powder side and the sponge applicator with a pointed tip helps me achieve the perfectly shaped brows. The combo of powder and pencil, not only helps me fill my brows, but I also extend it beyond my natural line, to give them longer and fuller look.
