Last week during my weekly jaunt to Ulta (I’m seriously becoming obsessed with this place. My heart will forever be with Target but Ulta offers colors and products that I can’t always find), I stumbled upon Maybelline’s Eyestudio Master Shape Brow Pencil right before I headed to the checkout.
As I mentioned here, I’m forever working on obtaining perfect brows, so I’m always looking for products that fill and darken where needed without smudging as the day goes on or making me look like a stand-in for Oscar the Grouch.
Sorry Oscar, but the brows are all wrong.
Made with a natural wax formula and subtle color pigment, I was able to achieve the look I wanted without my brows looking too heavy. Offered in 4 shades (blonde, soft brown, deep brown, and auburn), I went with the deep brown; a dark haired brunette, I like my brows defined but not too heavy, especially on days when all I want to wear is mascara and a bold lip. Be sure to keep the tip sharp so that application remains light; if it becomes too rounded, as with any pencil, you may apply too much.
It comes with a refined groomer on the other end so brush brows in place before you “set” with the pencil. I knew that I’d chosen a good product when I asked my best friend if she noticed a difference in my brows and she said she did, but she couldn’t quite place what the difference was (BUT, they looked good).
Best thing about it? It’s only $7.99! As someone who likes beauty on a budget, this was right up my alley.
