Maybelline Define A Brow Eyebrow Pencil Review

Maybelline Define A Brow Eyebrow Pencil

According to me, eye brows are the most important feature on your face which can make or break your whole look. Neat, defined eyebrows are must for any look, day or night. I am used to maintaining my eyebrows myself by plucking. I was using e.l.f. eyebrow kit until now but I realized the need of an eyebrow pencil too which can be use to define the shape while plucking and later I can use eye brow gel or wax to maintain that shape. So I was in search of an eye brow pencil when I found the perfect thing for my need. Read on to know how this is an awesome product for your eyebrow needs.

My experience with Maybelline Define A brow eyebrow pencil:

I got the shade Medium brown which was a lucky guess. I was tempted to take another pencil from another brand in black color but somehow I convinced myself that black will look too unnatural. And shade of the cap looked dark brown (natural color of my hair) so I ended up with this shade. When I first used this, my eyebrows were untamed. I plucked all the stray hair, lined my eyebrows in natural shape with this pencil and plucked extras. It was super easy with this pencil. The thing which makes it different from other eyebrow pencil is it has a very thin tip, so it can be used to define the outline of eyebrows and also to fill in the small gaps in if you plucked one or two hairs extra. It makes my eyebrow to look thick naturally and it is very true to its claim of easily blend able. You won’t even notice that you have something on your eyebrow (like the feeling you get when you put gel or wax). And this shade completely blends in my natural hair color. It will suit most of Indians and won’t look unnatural on eyebrows. Staying time is good too. I have to take it out in evening with makeup remover. The claim about water proof is true in sense that it won’t start running on your face if you wash your face or get caught in rain but after that when you wipe your face, it will come off.
The other thing which makes it excellent is that it is a twist up pencil which doesn’t need to be sharpened every now and then. And the tip is super thin. It’s very easy to line eyebrows with this.


It also includes a brush at the other end which can be used to comb brow hair and pull out the strays and also to blend in the color. Comb quality is good enough. Does the job perfectly.

Cons of Maybelline Define A Brow Eyebrow Pencil

1. No way of knowing how much product is left
2. If you twist too much, product will break cause it can’t be twisted back in, what’s out is out. You have to only expose the tip. Don’t twist too much.
3. Contains parabens.
4. Availability

Conclusion on Maybelline Define A Brow Eyebrow Pencil : I totally love this pencil. Best part is the included comb and thin tip. I love the shade collection and staying power. I use it every day and because you have to just use the tip,very less product gets used. So it’s absolutely win-win for me

IMBB rating: 4.5/5

Would I recommend you to purchase this: Definitely yes if you are looking for an everyday product for neatly defined eyebrows. You don’t even have to carry separate brush.

  1. Is it just me? The brand new pencil wont twist up. I tried a couple of times but then feared that too much force might break it.
    When I googled it, people said they talked to customer service and the cust. service rep told them to sharpen it just like a regular pencil and I was like “WHAAAA”
    I will try twisting it up again today, else sharpening it will have to do!
