In Detail Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper Brown Review and My Experience
The Maybelline Fashion Brow Shaper Duo involves a very comprehensive packaging and well-built as well. It comes in a sleek black plastic pencil body with color coded cap – either brown or grey. It has two ends – one for the pencil while the other one is for the powder. The pencil has the proper click-shut cap and twist up form. On the other hand, the tube has a dome-shaped sponge applicator. Underneath the sponge, it has the brow powder for application. The sponge side cap is in the form of a screw. The whole packaging might sound a little confusing but trust me, the application is a cakewalk. Hats off to Maybelline to come up with such a handy, well built and efficient applicator for brow which you can easily apply on the go.
Shade and Pigmentation
It is available in two shades – brown and grey. The grey will suit both the cool and neutral skin tones while brown will be the best choice for warmer and faired complexions. I picked up the brown color for my NC 40 skin tone. The pencil has a slim built and comes off as a dusky brown with an evident taupe touch to it. The powder on the other hand is a medium brown color. Having said that, the color will be the best choice for filling up and gives a proper brow shape. The pigmentation of the pencil is medium while the powder varies from light to medium. Now, to build the color to the highest saturation point, you have to apply again and again. Though some may consider this a con, I would say it is great for beginners and especially when you are in a hurry and likely to do a mistake.
The texture of the pencil is on the drier side, unlike the regular eye pencils which are soft and creamy. The drier texture helps in filling up the brows properly and doesn’t let the hairs stick to one another. Thus, it looks more natural and sophisticated. The beauty and versatility of the product lies in the usage. It can be applied on thick as well as scanty brows. However, if you want to create something thick and bold (like Deepika Padukone’s look in Bajirao Mastani) then you would be a little disappointed.
The longevity of the color is absolutely amazing. Once you apply this, you won’t need a retouch throughout the day and the intensity hardly fades off even after when I come back home, approximately around 8-9hours in this scorching summer. It stays put without any complain or irritation at all.
