Makeup Monday- Maybelline Brow Drama Pomade Crayon

Hey everyone!  Happy Makeup Monday!  I grabbed this at the drugstore the other day when I was supposed to be running out for toothpaste.  There are a bajillion new brow products out there and I am basically determined to try them all.  

This is a twist up chubby pencil, so when it wears down you twist up instead of sharpening.  You can probably guess one of my problems with this product.  

Nice color though, right?!  One of the most helpful bits of advice I could give when it comes to brows is to pick a color without any red in it, unless you have very red hair of course.  This is harder than you would think, but I've seen big improvements in drugstore products over the last year!  Look for a product that leans more gray or khaki.  Try to avoid warm browns if you're going for a natural look.  

So, here's the thing.  I love the color and the ease of using this pomade crayon.  I was concerned that it would be too soft, but I'd call it just right.  The big problem is that it's not very precise since it's such a big crayon and the tip can't be sharpened, unless you want to go at it with a whittling knife or something.  My solution has  been to use the side of the crayon as much as possible and save the point for the tail ends where I really need it.  This has been working fine, but I've only been doing it for a week.  Another option would be taking product off the crayon with a brush and applying it that way.  I tried it and it's not ideal, but not a bad option for the ends of the brow.  

I love this product and I'll definitely be using it!  I love not dirtying a brush when I don't have to.  You probably won't like it if you want a darker or more defined brow.  The big tip and somewhat sheer consistency will be a problem for you.  If you're looking for a quick everyday solution, give it a whirl!
