Today's post was highly requested on my Instagram, (@fashi0nbynicole), and it's reviewing one of my favourite beauty products, the 'Maybelline Brow Satin' pencil.
I began using this when I was frantically searching for an alternative to the 'Anastasia Brow Wiz', after my dog chewed it up! This is actually a repurchase, and I can say I'm incredibly impressed. 

I don't draw my eyebrows on, so I can't say how it'd work for drawing additional 'hairs', but for filling in those sparse areas, it ticks every box.

This is my eyebrows before filling in. (Ugh, my eyeshadow is so not on point).

After filling in my eyebrows!

As you can see, those sparse areas are now lightly filled in. The 'Brow Satin' is double sided, one being the pencil, which doesn't require sharpening as it's one of those.. 'twisty pencils'.. (I don't know the official terminology?). The other side is a little sponge applicator. When the lid is secured, the sponge is pressed into a brow powder and ready to use. I rarely use this side, and tend to only go for it for a heavier colour.

I do intend on repurchasing the Anastasia Brow Wiz, as I do love a little bit of luxury, but this is definitely staying a staple in my daily make-up routine as it's super affordable and accessible. 

Have any of you tried this? What do you think?

  1. Never tried it as I recently picked up the Primark Brow Kit which is quite good actually.
