Review: Maybelline Brow Drama Pomade Crayon

Maybelline Brow Drama Pomade Crayons in Auburn and Soft Brown from Influenster

Although you can't always see my eyebrows since I have bangs, I assure you I do still fill them in regularly because wind exists. Influenster sent me the new Maybelline Brow Drama Pomade Crayon in a couple different shades, Auburn and Soft Brown, to try out and share a review with you.

The eyebrow crayon is supposed to be an all-in-one, one-step brow product. So essentially it's color and rogue-eyebrow-hair-taming wax in one stick. Overall: it did a good job! The product is very pigmented, soft, and really does keep my eyebrows in place. 

Cons: The crayon doesn't give the most precise application. I think it'd be perfect for people who already have pretty intense eyebrows, but mine aren't that thick and I definitely had some issues keeping the outline sharp on the tail end of my brows. I'm going to try applying with an angled brush for a more precise application. I recommend combing the color through with a spoolie brush to distribute the color more evenly too.

I loved both the colors I tried out and wore both of them in the picture below. (Now you know I have eyebrows!) On the left, I'm wearing the Brow Drama crayon and on the right I didn't apply anything. These days I tend to use a cooler, lighter brown shade on the inner part of my eyebrows and a darker, reddish shade on the tail end. I could pretty much replicate my usual eyebrow look with these colors. The Soft Brown, although cooler than the Auburn color, still leaned pretty warm though.

Price: It looks like it's retailing for $9.99 but since it's a drug store product, wait for a sale and pick it up at a discount.

The bottom line: The product itself is great - long lasting, creamy, and pigmented. However, precise application is difficult using just the crayon itself, particularly if you don't have the thickest brows in the land.

I've never heard of a crayon for your eyebrows before! I don't know if it'd work for me but I liked reading your review all the same.

Oh this is perfect, I was JUST saying on my beauty round-up how I've been experimenting with brow products and looking for the best one (there's so many options out there that I didn't even realize!) I think this is a great point- the tip of the crayon does look fairly wide. Then again, I have pretty "full" brows, so it might be worth a shot. Sometimes I don't like the waxy consistency as much though. Anyway, thanks for sharing!
