Eyebrows are a very significant aspect of our appearance and the most important facial feature we have. Eyebrow shapes are not one size fits all. Eyebrows need to be groomed, trimmed, and maintained on a regular basis. One of the easiest ways to define, color, and sculpt eyebrows to perfection is using eyebrow pomades. Maybelline has made it even easier by launching eyebrow pomade in a crayon form called “Fashion Brow Pomade Crayon.” They come in two shades: BR-1 Deep Brown and BR-2 Soft Brown.

My Experience with Maybelline Fashion Brow Pomade Crayon BR-1 Deep Brown
Packaging: This pomade crayon comes in a small black chubby stick with a matching color base and a clear pull-up cap. You need to twist from the bottom to glide up and down the pomade crayon, and it comes in a retractable form. Initially, it has a tapered tip; then it would need some sharpening. The shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the tube, whereas the manufactured date is mentioned on the tube itself. It is handy as well as travel friendly.
Texture: The texture of this pomade crayon is soft and creamy. However, it settles down to a powdery matte finish. This easy-to-use crayon fills color and keeps eyebrows in shape. Although the bullet looks like it would deposit a lot of color, the color payoff is actually sheer. Couple of swipes is needed to achieve groomed, well-shaped eyebrows.
Shade: “BR-1 Deep Brown” is the darkest shade among the two shades. It is a deep brown with grey undertones. Both the shades in this range complement Indian skin tones very well. “BR-2 Soft Brown” is for fair to medium skin tones, and “BR-1 Deep Brown” is for medium to dark skin tones. It adds a subtle color to eyebrows, making them look very natural.
Performance: Eyebrow pomades fill in sparse patches like a pencil and also have a soft, matte finish of a powder. Maybelline has simplified the whole process of using a brush and potted eyebrow pomades by launching pomade in a crayon format. This pomade crayon is supereasy and superquick to use. It will effortlessly sculpt and fill eyebrows with color, resulting in flawless, stunning eyebrows. Although the pomade crayon is soft and creamy, it does not deposit too much color. The color of the product is subtle, making the eyebrows look natural and not made up. This deep brown shade has grey undertones rather than black undertones. This shade will best suit medium- to dark-skinned beauties for accentuating their eyebrows. It has a good staying power. Its waterproof formula prevents it from smudging. I find its chubby tip very wide for an eyebrow product. Thus, it is hard in getting a much defined look using this pomade crayon. Moreover, it would be difficult to work on thin eyebrows. It is ideal for casual, soft daytime look. It is easily washable with your cleanser. Overall, I love the well-groomed effect it provides to my eyebrows.
