Brows, brows, brows!! Everywhere I look and read it’s all about having luscious brows and I just don’t get it. OK, I can appreciate the difference between the terribly over-plucked and and some fabulous caterpillars but I think all these new products designed for amazing brows are just lost on me. What can I say, I’m all about the lipstick y’all!
But of course being the make-up obsessed lass I am I wanted to try the new Maybelline Brow Satin ($16.95) on the immediate! After trying out Brow Drama earlier in the year and being a fan I had high hopes for this new pencil.
Brow Satin is a two-in-one product with one end being a mechanical pencil (no sharpening…woohoo!) and the other a powder filled sponge designed to smudge and fill in any gaps in your brows.
This was super, super easy to use, as it really is a matter of filling in all the gaps, and for somebody who doesn’t usually do their brows this was a no brainer! The sponge tip felt like there wasn’t a huge amount of product going on (check out the swatch below), which is a good thing I guess, as you don’t want to overdo your brows.
I think I much prefer Brow Drama as it’s more of a setting gel/mascara as I’m really in need of something that keeps those wiry suckers in place, but Brow Satin is a great pencil to use if you have sparse brows. There are three shades to choose from; dark blonde, medium brown and dark brown. I went with the darkest colour and think it was a good match for my naturally dark brows.
Am I missing out on not being brow obsessed? Should I be concentrating on my brows more than I do my lippy?
