Max Factor Brow Shaper | Review

Guest post by Huda Pervez from MakeupManiac

Hello everybody!

Today, I will be reviewing the Max Factor Brow Shaper. Personally, my favorite way of filling in my brows is with a brow pencil and I have tried quite a few, including NYX, Benefit, and Anastasia. Hence, I was pretty excited to put this product to the test and see it if matched up to some of my favorite brow pencils!  If you want to know my thoughts on this product, then keep on reading!

Max Factor Brow Shaper | Review

This brow pencil has two sides, like many other brow pencils, with one side being the actual pencil and the other side having a spoolie. The brow pencil itself is pretty thin and I was really impressed with that. I also like the fact that that you have to twist to get the pencil out instead of sharpening because I feel that sharpening wastes so much product.

The shade I got is ‘Deep Brown’ and this is the perfect shade for me. They only have 3 total shades in this brow pencil, which is a major downside.

On application, the consistency of this was a little waxy, which I liked. It was easy to build up and wasn’t too dark or harsh on the brows. Since the pencil is so thin, it really helped me be more precise and get in all the little spaces in my brows. With this pencil, I have so much control over how I want my brows to look as I could leave them looking natural or go all out by building the product up. I always like to go through my brows with a spoolie when I’m done, to blend out any harsh lines, and the small size of the spoolie helped me achieve that!

Overall, I am very impressed with this brow pencil, taking into consideration the fact that it’s only for $9.80 and works just as good as many of the drugstore and even high-end brow pencils.

Maybelline New York Fashion Brow Cream Pencil – Grey | Review

I must admit, I am extremely lazy when it comes to my brows and have no clue regarding how to use fancy brow products like pomades. However, when Maybelline came out with its Fashion Brow Cream Pencil, I thought that handling a brow pencil should be easy enough. I am glad that I invested in this handy product because it provides an instant and effortless makeover to my brows 🙂

Maybelline New York Fashion Brow Cream Pencil GreyI went for the Maybelline Fashion Brow Cream Pencil in the shade Grey, the other variant being a warm brown which I believe won’t suit most Indian eyebrows as much as this cool toned dark grey shade. I love that this color is not a jet black that may look fake, but a more natural and lighter shade instead. Texture wise, this pencil is creamy enough for easy application yet waxy enough to stay in place and not get messy. I primarily use it for filling in the sparse areas of my brows and it provides a nice, greyish shadow that gives the illusion of fuller brows.

Maybelline New York Fashion Brow Cream Pencil Grey Swatches ReviewThe great thing about this product is that it is incredibly affordable and is priced at INR 175 (can be found at even cheaper rates online!). Considering that it is a brow pencil and such products tend to last a lifetime, you can’t really go wrong with this product. This pencil is a great way to venture into the world of eyebrow products, because it is easy to use and is not intimidating like the newer brow products that have hit the shelves. Personally, I am very pleased that I have finally gained the courage to fill in my brows, thanks to this amazing brow pencil!

I hope that this review was helpful. You can buy the Maybelline New York Fashion Brow Cream Pencil in the shade Grey here, at INR 140 only!
