Eyebrow enhancing can sharpen the entire makeup look in minutes. We Indians are generally blessed with good eyebrow shapes and thicker brows. That is why major eyebrow enhancement is not needed on an everyday basis. Still, sometimes we need an extra dose of eyebrow shaping to make our makeup looks pop more. I am going to review Maybelline Fashion Brow Cream Pencil Dark Grey. The Fashion Brow series by Maybelline includes some very affordable eyebrow enhancers of good quality. This cream pencil that I am reviewing today comes in two shades; Brown and Dark Grey. As I have dark brown hair, Dark Grey suits me better. Let’s read on to know how this one fared.

My Experience with Maybelline Fashion Brow Cream Pencil Dark Grey
Packaging- This brow pencil comes in a sharply wood pencil format. The pencil looks almost similar to a writing pencil. It has a clear plastic lid to secure the tip. The pencil has a transparent plastic seal when it was new. That seal has all the useful information and complete ingredient list mentioned. The seal was to be broken to use the product so now it has become impossible to get to those details. However, the expiry date is mentioned in the pencil.
Shade & Texture- The shade Dark Grey is completely true to its name. It is a deep grey shade. The pigment is slightly lighter than my brow’s color. So, it is the best shade for my brow. The pencil has moderate pigmentation, just the kind we seek from a brow tint. It is buildable and the color you will get from a single stroke depends on the pressure of your hand. This pencil has a creamy texture but not oily. It survives sweat attacks for a considerable time!
Fragrance- This is a fragrance-free product.
Staying Power- This is a smudge proof pencil so it stays on my brow for 6+ hours in winter. In sweaty summer, the staying power becomes 4-5 hours. The tint does not melt; it fades.
Experience- This is a value for money brow product in my opinion. Its texture is very easy to work with and the color blends with my brow hair really well. I can easily control the intensity of the tint by varying the pressure. This is a perfect product for a natural brow look to dramatic looks. The tint sets into the comfortable matte finish and gives slight hold. I have very stiff brow hair so the hold it provides is not strong enough. As it is not a brow fixer, I am not considering the hold issue. The staying power of this pencil is remarkable though. It just stays on and on until I remove with my oil-based cleansing milk. The sharp pencil format is quite hygienic. There is no chance of germ development.
