Review for: Medium Brown more...
Product Color:  Medium Brown

- I have dark brown hair and thought that medium brown would be a good option for me. I actually think medium brown is too dark for me. I think I'd like this product more if I went a shade lighter, I would probably try the soft brown. 



Review:

I received this product for free from influenster for reviewing purposes, but that in no way sways by opinion of this product. This isn't a brow product that is going to absolutely wow you. I personally like it better than my other brow pencils because it is a twist up pencil. I like the convenience of not having to sharpen the product. However, I don't like the thickness of the pencil. I wish it was a bit more fine tip so that filling in the tail of my brows and drawing in brow hairs looked more natural. I do like the triangular shape the product has and the angle. It makes filling in brows easier. The spoolie on the end is different. It's short and round. I do like how it blends in the product after applying it. However, I don't like using it to initially brush my brow hairs. I actually use another brow product spoolie to do that. This could however also be my personal preference, but I wish it was a tad bit longer. The plastic side sometimes rubs up against my brow bone when blending. 

Wear time and durability is pretty good. I have oily skin and it stays for a good amount of the day. I haven't tried rubbing it off or anything, because I don't tend to do that on a day to day basis. 


Recommend? Yes, if you are just looking for a good brow product to travel with. However, if you like more thinner precise brow products then I don't think this is the product for you.

Review for: Soft Brown more...
Why was I sleeping on this brow pencil for so long!! I went to the drugstore with a friend, and asked if she had any suggestions since I was running low on my Benefit pencil and didn't wanna spend another $26. She pointed out this guy, and I'm so happy she did! This is a stroonnnng competitor to my Benefit Gimme Brow pencil, the ONLY thing I don't like about this Maybelline one is the brow spooly! It's a weird teat-shaped spooly, as opposed to a regular straight cylindrical spooly you might see on an ABH or Benefit pencil. The pencil itself though is really nice, I think. It's an automatic retracting one or whatever, where you twist it and stuff. It's shaped similar to other brand-name pencils you might see in Sephora, sort of a weird diamond shape. I found the Soft Brown color to be pigmented, easy to brush out, and complimentary to my light brown hair (my photo is outdated, disregard that haha.) I reach for the Maybelline pencil just as often, if not more than my Benefit one, if that tells you something. I think you get a great product for the price, and I can see myself repurchasing in the future.

Review for: Deep Brown more...
I was excited to try out the new Maybelline Total Temptation Brow Definer. The triangular shape had a smaller shape than my ABH brow pencil, which I prefer and I liked how small, soft and fluffy the spoolie is. It felt good against my brows. I used the brow definer right after I moisturized my skin and I noticed I had a bit of trouble being able to define the end of my brows. The product itself felt a little waxy than I’m use to using. The next time I tried the brow definer, I decided to wipe off any product on my brows to see if that would help with the ease of using the product. I was able to control it better and I had more success with creating the tail of my brows. Not perfectly but better than my initial use of it. It definitely doesn’t replace my favorite brow pencil but I think it is a great drugstore brow definer. I can’t say that I have had luck with any brow definer from the drugstore in the past. If you’re going for the natural undefined look, then this is the perfect product. Maybelline Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil

Review for: Soft Brown more...
I wanted to give this 5 stars, because I have definitely incorporated this into my daily brow routine, but I do have a few negatives about it to start with. It took a bit of figuring out because I used to just be a skinny gel pencil and gel brow plus powder filler type of gal and this has cut that down quite a bit while making my brows look more natural. The color was definitely darker than expected so if you are just starting, go a bit lighter than you might normally. I use this to first fill my brows and then I touch up with a skinny pencil after and then I use the brush to smooth it all out and it looks ways less dark after that!

Review for: Soft Brown more...
The consistency of the product made it perfect for my feathered style. It wasn’t too soft that it would over pigment—just waxy enough to get some light shading done. The teardrop applicator made my brow filling a lot quicker. However if you are doing defined brows, it’s probably not best. More similar to using a powder, just easier. In theory the teardrop should create a great line, but I could only pull it off on my hand and not on my brow. I think once my hair was in the way, it didn’t pull product the same. Maybe for a makeup artist it would be good. The shade was nice for my dark brows. Since I have blonde hair I try to go a shade lighter than the dark. Not a fan of the spindle/brush. Plastic felt super cheap and pokey and it didn’t seem to be doing much softening. Overall this is fine for the price and I do love the fact that it applied more delicate color.

Review for: Soft Brown more...
I was able to test this out for free thanks to influenster, I received soft brown which I was happy because I have natural blonde hair but darker brows and if I got any other darker brown shade it wouldn't have matched! So they definitely have a good color range! Now I swatched it on my hand it had nice color and it went on easily, I normally use a dip brow so I'm not use to using a pencil type, well i looked at the tip it's almost a diamond shape which right away worried me, again not use to using the pencil types, so I started filling in my brows I was pressing very lightly, and it was filling in nicely but when I went to shape my brows with it the line was too thick I tried and tried to make it go on thinner and couldn't, it also did clump up in certain areas of where my brow hairs are which is very irritating, over all I struggled alot using this. It was nice that it did come with a brow brush at the end of it so I could brush the product throughout, but I wish I had a better experience with it. Maybe it's because I'm not use to using this type of brow product since I do use the dip brow, but I'll continue to try it out and hopefully I can learn to use it better!

Review for: Deep Brown more...
I have to say I was really pleased with this product. I have another favorite luxury brand similar and this was more than comparable. I loved the tiny applicator tip, I was a able to get very sharp, clean lines and it wears all day. I love, love, love it and for the price point it makes a lot of sense! I also take it with me in my makeup since it’s on the shorter side and is great for touch ups without ever looking heavy. The Deep Brown is very cool and dark, so I do warm it up a little with a reddish-brown eye shadow as well, depending on the color palette I’m using for the day.

Review for: Medium Brown more...
So I found this to be difficult to work with due to the shape and consistency of the brow product in the pencil. The spooly was smaller and wider then I personally enjoy. This brow pencil is softer and more waxy then I would like. I spent half my time trying to keep it where I put it as it is so soft that it moves easily and smuges all over. I didn't get the crisp clean brows I am used to getting with my go to brow pencils and brow powders. It was also a little lighter than expected so keep that in mind when purchasing. I think that I will use this for a nomakeup makeup day otherwise there are better drugstore brow pencils you can pick up.

Review for: Soft Brown more...
I have sparse eyebrows and usually have a hard time trying to fill it in without looking fake or drawn in.

My eyes are dark brownish, and I bought the soft brown pencil. I didn't want it to be too dark and I feel like with the soft brown shade, I can build up to the intensity I need.

The shape of the pencil is a game-changer. I get a pretty good control when I pencil my brows. I enjoy the no-sharpening feature because who has time in the mornings to sharpen a pencil? I think the staying power is decent. I definitely would purchase this again.

Review for: Blonde more...
I ordered this product when it first came out and I wasn't sure how I'd like it because previously with pencils, I don't feel as though I can get the natural look compared to a brush. BUT I love this pencil! I'm not one who needs a lot for my eyebrows, as I just like to fill them in to keep them very natural looking, but this pencil is so easy to use, looks natural and inexpensive. I'm interested to see how quickly I go through the pencil, since that's why I went to a brush/pallet initially, but overall for the price and how easy it is to use, I'm sold!
