Hey, beauties! Today’s review is an eyebrow product because don’t we all want fuller brows? An eyebrow pencil is a staple in my everyday makeup routine and I have been using the Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper in the shade Grey for the past year. Find out how it works in this detailed review below.
The two must-haves in eyebrow theory – the sharpness of pencil and the softness of powder. The 2mm slim-tip pencil provides easy and precise control while the powder helps attain the soft focus effect for fuller looking brows you desire.

My Experience using Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper :
I have naturally thick eyebrows but with a few gaps which need filling up to look even. I bought the Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper because it gives a natural look perfect for everyday wear. The shade Grey matches my jet black eyebrow hair perfectly.
Now there are two sides to the product. First is a slim twist pencil which you can use to draw the outline of your brows. The pencil is a bit hard which controls the colour payoff to avoid stark black eyebrows. This results in a natural colour which can be built up to your preferences. I mainly use this part to fill up larger gaps in the eyebrow which powder doesn’t cover up and needs more pigment to blend with my natural brow hairs.
The second side has a sponge applicator and powder(which lies in the cap). The colour payoff is lighter than the pencil and can be used all over the eyebrows for a seamless look. The sponge glides smoothly on the skin and gives a soft natural finish. I use it blend out any harsh lines visible from pencil and fill in sparse areas especially on the inner corner of the eyebrow where you need very light handed application.
The colour stays usually for about 7-8 hours and is water resistant but not smudge-proof or water-proof. Overall, I am happy with this and have already repurchased this once. It is great for everyday wear when you don’t need dramatic eyebrows. If you have naturally full eyebrows but just need a product for special occasions, the Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper will definitely fulfill your needs. The grey shade will suit most Indian skin tones. But if have lighter eyebrow hair, you can try the Brown shade.
