I feel only a few eyebrow products are launched in India. When such a product was launched from our well-known brand, Maybelline, I had to get my hands on it. Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper comes in two shades: Grey and Brown, and I picked the Grey one.
The Fashion Brow Duo Shaper is an all-in-one pen for your eyebrow that gives you the sharpness of a 0.2-mm micro-lead fixing pencil and the softness of filling natural mineral powder. It is the ultimate duo shaper that gives you ultra-soft precision for perfectly defined eyebrows up to 12 hours. It fixes gaps and blends seamlessly for smooth, stunning brows.
My Experience with Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper Grey:
Packaging: It is a dual-ended pen with one end having the defining pencil and the other end having the filling powder. The pencil end is secured with a pull-up cap, and the powder end is secured with a twist-up colored cap, representing the color of the product. There are indicators as pencil and powder in the product itself. The pencil comes in the retractable form.
Texture: The pencil end is quite hard, and has a dry texture, but it is very thin to make precise strokes in the brows. The powder end has a soft dome shaped smudger/sponge applicator to fill in all the gaps in the brows, providing an even and neat look. The powder is supersoft and has no fallouts.
Performance: This brow product is a sure hit for makeup lovers. By just drawing the desired shape of the brows using the pencil and filling in the brows with the powder will result in flawless, stunning brows. It is super easy and super quick to use. The pencil applicator may be hard to use, but the powder applicator blends in the pencil strokes beautifully and gives a smooth and even finish. The color of the product is subtle, making the brows look natural and not made up. This grey shade has brown undertones rather than black undertones. This shade will best suit medium and dark skinned beauties, and will surely accentuate their brows.
The staying power is incredible. Its waterproof formula prevents it from smudging. As this product gives a very natural and defined look, it is great to fortify and extend the brows at ends. This product may not work well with heavy makeup looks such as party, wedding, and reception. But this will be your go-to product for daily and formal occasions. It is easily washable with your cleanser. I love the well-groomed effect it provides to my eyebrows.
