Packaging of the Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper:
The Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper comes in a sleek black plastic packaging with colour coded caps.One side has the retractable pencil which helps you to outline the eyebrow and the other side has a sponge applicator which helps you to fill in the gaps with a powder.
How to use the Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper:
So now let me explain how to use it,firstly,you need to take the pencil side and outline the brows,work in short strokes and create a perfect outline for your brows.Do not overdraw them,just start with the natural line of your brows and give them a nice and fuller shape.Now take the sponge applicator part and fill in your brows,fill in the sparse gaps in the eyebrows and brush it out with a spoolie to blend it all in.
Texture of the Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper:
The texture of the pencil is a bit dry and I feel it is just perfect for beginners.The texture is lightweight and smooth,does not feel heavy on the brows at all.I believe that if the eyebrow pencil is too creamy we don’t have much control over it.With creamy pencils we usually end up over drawing our brows and they look so stark and weird.It is better for eyebrows pencils to be a bit on the dry side because it helps the beginners to have much precision over them.
I always prefer building up my brows in short strokes,creamier products look very heavy on the brows and brows look very artificial.Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper is a bit on the dry side so it looks very natural and does not smudge or budge at all.It helps in controlling the shape and helps to define your brows much better.The sponge applicator is soft and pointed which is also perfect for filling in your brows and defining the arch.
Staying Power of the Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper:
This eyebrow pencil lasts me throughout the day.I usually apply it in the morning and my brows stay in place all day without fading away.I remove them at night with my make up remover.They seriously last me for 12 hours or so.I have applied it,went out in the sun,sweat badly but they still stay in place.Awesome staying power.
My experience with the Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper:
I am so happy to have this eyebrow shaper in my collection.This brown shade is perfect for me but some people may be unhappy with it due to the less shade available.It has amazing staying power,it blends completely and makes your brow look natural and fully defined.The powder applicator is great to get a natural finish.This is a must have product for everyone and it is so affordable too.I like the sponge applicator too as it fills in the sparse space in my brows.Overall,I just love this brow pencil.
