Well groomed eyebrows can do wonders by framing your face. All of us do not have naturally perfect and full looking brows. So, to get perfect and well-shaped eyebrows one has to have a good eyebrow pencil or an eyebrow kit. In my opinion, eyebrow kits are underrated and rarely launched in the Indian market. When Maybelline launched brow products at an affordable range, people went gaga over them.



Packaging : Fashion brow shaper comes in a dual ended pencil body which has retractable pencil at one end and a brow powder on the other. It has a color coded end so that one can easily identify the shade from a pile. Overall, it easy to use and travel along with.

Shade : The color of both pencil and powder is cool toned gray which can do the job of filling brows and creating shadows quite well.

Pigmentation and texture : The pencil is very stiff and dry in texture which is desirable in brow products as you do not want to go overboard with it. The powder is very lightly pigmented which is ideal for filling in the gaps. the light color doesn’t show up in fuller or darker brows but in scarce and thin brows, the color looks very natural. I use the pencil to draw the outer line or shape of my brows then fill them in with the brow powder. My brows look so natural and well groomed within minutes.

Staying power : It stays put on me for 6 hours with a tad bit of fading if not rubbed or washed off. The dry and powdery texture causes fading but one can easily work with it.

Pros :

  • Affordable, easily available
  • Pencil has the right kind of texture.
  • Lightly pigmented brow powder gives natural looking brows.
  • Ideal for thin brows
  • Travel friendly

Cons :

  • Not suited for fuller, thick brows.
  • Staying power is average, dry and powdery formula causes fading.

Verdict : A

Price : INR 300 for 0.6 gm

Recommendation : I have thin brows with gaps here and there, so I have found the perfect product for them. The shade gray looks so natural, it is ideal for everyday wear. It is easy to use, carry and take off. If you have scanty brows like me then I would recommend it. But those who are blessed with naturally fuller looking brows can give it a miss.
