Maybelline Eye Studio Brow Drama Pomade Crayon in Deep Brown

The second eyebrow product in my Maybelline haul is the new chubby pomade pencil.


It’s surprisingly plump for what it’s meant to accomplish. I suppose the design team thought a thicker pencil would cover more surface area.


It’s not too long. What it lacks in length it compensates for in girth.


The tip has a nice point to it, but I have to figure out how to sharpen it.


As with Define + Fill Duo, the color is not as dark and intense as I expected.


It darkens my brows but doesn’t tame them much. I noticed the pomade working a little to push my brow hairs down, but the effect wasn’t terribly significant. I wouldn’t buy this again for solely that purpose.

It is easy to get heavy handed with this. A few times I found myself looking like Oscar the Grouch in the eyebrow department because if I’m not careful, I could overdo it and get incredibly dark and heavy eyebrows. Watch out for that. I recommend a very light hand and possibly using an angled eyebrow brush to apply this.

I’m able to make it work for me when I use a light touch and merely fill in the spots that are sparse. I brush out my brows and use very little product.

Would I repurchase? I don’t think I would. This is a good brow product but it’s not exactly as natural looking as I prefer, and there are additional steps one should take when working with this.

I recommend this for people with sparse, light or very thin eyebrows who want more dramatic eyebrows.
