Review: Maybelline define-a-brow eyebrow pencil

What it claims:

-Evenly defines and grooms brows

-Blends easily with brow hair

-Waterproof for all day wear

-Safe for sensitive eyes

-Contact lens safe

-ophthalmologist tested

Expert application tips: Swivel up on full turn to expose point. Using thin hair-like strokes, glide liner along your natural brow line. use attached comb to blend color and groom brow hair.

Price: $5.50-$6.00

Where you can buy it: Wal-mart, Target, Ulta, K-mart and anywhere else Maybelline products are sold.

My Rating: 5 Peace signs

The Good: I've tried quite a few different drug store brand eyebrow pencils and this one by far is my favorite. I personally use the #642 dark brown and I find it's just about a spot on match if you use it with light strokes and blend afterward. The staying power is really great also being someone with oily skin getting eyebrow color to stay isn't always the easiest but this stays! The thing I like the most about this is how thin the actual pencil is, that way you have more control over how much color is going on and how big or small of an area you cover at one time. I don't really like the pencils that are the same size as eyeliners because it can deposit too much color or be too harsh so this pencil is ideal for me.

The Bad: The only thing I can really say bad about this is that the comb thing on the end of the pencil is pretty much useless, it doesn't help you blend and it's angled weird so there's really no point in having it on there but that's just me.

Overall: I would definitely recommend this! It has become my favorite eyebrow pencil and you can't beat the price!

Any questions? Let me know!

Ohh, thanks for the review. I keep passing this cause I didn't know if it was good or not.

Do you think the colour you use would be a match for me? Because I usually use a matte black eyeshadow.

it's also a dupe for the MAC brow pencils. almost the same packaging except of course, the package color and the useless wand at the end.

I've been wanting to try this! I love thin eyebrows. So I def need a pencil that is thin. When I run out of my MAC one I'm going to get this one. I tried using my old wet n wild one the other day, and it just doesn't compare when you've found something wayyyy better. Hopefully I love this one as much as MACs!
