If your are looking for a great on-the-go brow product then this review is for you! I have been using the Maybelline Brow Satin Pencil and Filling Powder for a long time and wanted to share this gem with my readers. I sometimes feel we are so bombarded with new products that we forget to appreciate the amazing ‘older’ products we already have. So let’s take a look at my review:
Maybelline Brow Satin Pencil and Filling Powder
Product: The Maybelline Brow Satin is a dual-ended brow product with a gel-creme pencil on one side and a brow-filling powder on the other side. The aim of the product is to make it convenient to do your brows by having one product that offers both mediums to achieve perfect, natural-looking brows.
Packaging: The product is packaged in a slim, good quality pen with a twist-up system for the pencil part and a screw cap for the powder. It is compact enough to easily fit into a makeup back making it perfect for traveling as well.
Consistency: Let’s start with the pencil. The Maybelline Brow Satin has an amazing gel-like pencil that is not too creamy or too hard – it is literally perfect thus making it so easy to use. The powder is a different story though. At the risk of sounding perhaps a bit snarky I am going to say that I find this powder to be pretty useless. The powder is unfortunately drier than the desert, poorly pigmented and not doing much at all.
Pigmentation: The pencil has beautiful pigmentation in natural cool-toned shades and the powder, well, there is not much color pay-off I’m afraid. I think the lack of pigmentation in the powder is mainly due to the dryness of the product.
Use and Wear: I absolutely loved the pencil part of the Maybelline Brow Satin. The consistency and pigmentation of the pencil makes it an absolute breeze to create natural-looking brows in a flash. The pencil doesn’t create harsh lines or strokes that can ruin your brow-game and you can work with absolute precision if necessary. The powder unfortunately does not do a very good job at filling in sparse areas. I will be honest that I never use the filling powder and kind of forgot it is part of the product to be honest. The pencil wears well during the day and is easy to remove with ordinary makeup remover or any face wash.
Shades: There are 3 cool-toned shades available. The cool-toned shades are refreshing as I often find brow products to have a red undertone which doesn’t work for me.
What did I think? I absolutely loved the Maybelline Brow Satin and it has been my go-to to take with on travels or when I am in a hurry to get out the door in the mornings. The product is extremely convenient and fast to use and is definitely a staple in my makeup bag. Despite the disappointing performance of the filling powder, the incredible pencil makes up for it and puts Maybelline Brow Satin on top as a phenomenal brow product. If you are looking for a product that will give you amazing results in basically no time, then I can highly recommend the Maybelline Brow Satin.
Will I buy this product again? Yes, I have already repurchased it.
