Maybelline Fashion Eyebrow Shaper Pencil #BrowsOnFleek






Review: Maybelline Fashion Eyebrow Shaper Pencil


I HATE waking up early. I just abhor it... And I was having a wonderful time the past 4 years as the company I was working for let me reach work at noon everyday. Of course I left late in the evening so as to compensate (I don't shirk from work you see :P).
However, I have switched jobs now and my new workplace is pretty far from where I live. And if that wasn't enough, everyone at my new workplace is in early, like really early :/

Siggghhhhhhh...






I need to be at work by 9:30 am for which I have to leave home at 8:45 am. So I have to be up by 8:00 am at least and it is eating into my makeup time...
Yup! The time I need to do my makeup in the morning has reduced manifold. So  much so that sometimes I only get time to put on some kajal, a little blush and do my brows... Brows, yes... The thing is once you start filling in your brows, you cannot ever stop doing it :)

And hence today, I plan to review the eyebrow pencil that I am currently using... Ladies please put your hands together for Maybelline Fashion Eyebrow Shaper. Am I glad Maybelline came up with an eyebrow pencil? Finally an eyebrow pencil that's actually easily available in India!!!


Price of Maybelline Fashion Eyebrow Shaper Pencil

It costs INR 245/-

Shades Available:
Brown and Grey

The Maybelline Fashion Eyebrow Shaper is a dual ended tool, with an eyebrow pencil at one end and an eyebrow powder on the other. The pencil helps you "draw" hair and give your brows a proper shape and outline. The powder on the other hand "smudges" the harsh lines made by the pencil and makes your brows look more natural.








I use the shade Grey and it matches my brows to the T. Since eternity we have been told that one must use a brown pencil for our eyebrows instead of black and that's what many of us have been doing all this while. However, for a genuinely natural looking brow it is the shade Grey that works best for black eyebrows. It looks more natural than brown does... So that's a little trick you might want to work to your advantage :) If you have black hair then go for a Grey eyebrow pencil...




Coming back to the review, the pencil stays on for the whole day and can easily be removed using makeup remover or a face cleanser. They don't seem to cause any reactions on me and no they do not cause my eyebrow hair to fall off :P I just thought I'd put it out there... People have concerns you know ;)


I just wish there was a way to incorporate a spoolie brush in the pencil. It would have been just perfect then :)

Availability:
They are easily available at all Maybelline counters and also on most online beauty stores.

Overall Rating:
9/10

Recommendation:
Don't even think twice, get it!

  1. Would love to see a video on how you use this to do your brows! I have not got this coz I can't do my brows without an angular brush and a spoolie! You look as pretty as ever <3

  2. Nice product, I definitely need to get my hands on this one. In my opinion, the shade to be used will depend a lot on the hair color and the undertones of the skin. So some might find brown working better for them, others grey. Please provide your inputs in case you think I am wrong.

    1. Yes dear! Your opinion can not be totally justified as wrong, because it is not! :)
      But what samyukta meant to say, was that grey suits naturally black hair more as opposed to browns and taupes!
      Rest depends on skin tone, hair colour and also personal choices and preferences! :)

    2. Hey FlawedFabHappy! Totally agree with the shade depending on not only one's hair color but also one's undertones. However, majority of our Indian skintones have a similar undertone and grey would look more natural with black hair... But yes there are exceptions to the rule especially for people whose undertones deviate from the "traditional" undertone that we Indians seem to have...

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...




Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
