Maybelline Browdrama in Dark blond

You may have heard me mention before that I don't currently do anything with my brows apart from just comb them through. I know I really need to do something with them, as they're virtually non-existent, but I'm too scared to attempt them as obviously I don't want to end up looking a fool.  One of my resolutions this year was to at least attempt trying to do something with them and I thought the best place to start may be with something quick and easy to use like Maybelline's Browdrama.












































































There's really not very much to said for the packaging. It's pretty simple with a plastic black tube and a rather strange mascara wand type applicator with a random large ball shaped part at the end.  I have to say I really don't understand the brush, but I may be missing something.  Fair enough if you're supposed to use the ball shaped part at the end to comb through your brows, but if that's the case then why does it not just have the ball shaped part. The end is too large to try and use the whole brush part against your brow, so I just don't get it.  

I did spend a while trying to decide what shade to buy, as although I'm naturally blonde my eyebrows aren't really blonde but aren't very dark either. I needn't have bothered worrying too much to be honest as I find this adds hardly any colour at all to my brows, but maybe that means I did pick the correct shade. In fact I find this does pretty much nothing at all to my brows.  Yes it combs them through, but I can do that with my brow comb, although obviously the brow comb doesn't set them in place. Hardly anything seems to transfer from the wand to my brows and where some product does transfer over it dries kind of crispy, which I'm not really keen on. 

Maybe because of my complete lack of experience with brow products I'm not using this to it's full potential.  I don't really know, but I'm glad I only wasted £5 on it.

Have you got any tips for how to try and make this work for me?

  1. Like you I'm a complete newbie with eyebrow products and the most I ever use is an eyebrow pencil, but this looks a bit weird. Maybe try and get some product off the end with another brush and see if you can use that to help shape your brows?
    Good luck!

    1. I think to be honest I might just abandon this and give something else a try! x

  2. This product is like Marmite, some people love it and some people hate it. I don't like the look of the ball on the end as my brows are too thin for it to work. I don't think it's worth £5 when you can buy a clear mascara from MUA for £1 and use that instead.

    1. It's a bit too large for mine as well after my teenage self got her hands on some tweezers! For the time being I think I'll stick with just combing them through x

  3. I bought this the other week. I think on it's own it's not great, I think it'd be best over a more filling brow product. Soap and Glory Archery is good - it has a tint on one end and a crayon on the other xx

    1. I do actually have the Brow Archery pen/pencil thing but haven't got round to giving it a proper try! x

  4. I did want to try this but like you I am inexperienced with brow products and I don't know if I would be very good!
