Review - Maybelline Eye Studio Master Shape Brow Pencil in Soft Brown

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

I had eyebrows at some point in high school; I promise. Given the whole "my brows have to be thin or I'll look like a boy" notion that I experienced circa 15 years of age, I'm left with some pretty weak brows that didn't really decide to grow back all too much. I've got my brows down to a two part science, forming a bit more of a healthy shape with a pencil and filling in the remaining with a powder (Milani Brow fix). I've tried brown pencils from both high end brands and drugstore brands, but this pencil is literally holy grail status.

This is cased in a plastic pencil, which I originally wasn't too keen on. I don't know if this helps me be more sturdy or exact or anything like that but I can't even take points off for the potential sharpening woes.

Even down to the spoolie I'm pleased. Its a little bit smaller than average and it just catches and tames my brows really well.

Soft brown is a slightly warm medium brown. It was between this shade and Auburn for me, but I felt like this one was a bit of a better fit, especially since my hair is a bit darker because of the winter/lack of being outside. My hair tends to pull more red in the summer because when it's lightened by the sun the redder tones are  pulled out more, so I may try this in Auburn if I see a big change in my hair. 

The formula has enough pigment, but not too much. Its soft colored; its not like you're putting  an eyeliner in your brows. The biggest win about this is the fact that it doesn't break when you're working with it; its not super thin like all other brow pencils that I've worked with. 



- Right amount of pigment.
- Sturdy, won't break mid-brow.
- Natural finish



I freaking love this. Given that the last brow pencil I tried by Maybelline (and the one before that) royally sucked, I didn't have high hopes for this. But I was desperate and for once that worked out in my favor. 

10/10 Highly recommended! Serious holy grail status here.
