It is almost the end of January and it has been three weeks since I have started my new course. It is rather exciting to finally be done with University. Unfortunately, it means that there is more work to do and less time to myself. I usually do a very minimalistic makeup look and my go-to product has to be the Maybelline brow satin duo. It is a quick way to get brows that look naturally full. It has definitely become a staple in my makeup regime and here's why...
The Maybelline brow satin duo is a double sided stick. On one end you have a retractable pencil. The texture of the pencil and the retractable feature ensures that you don't need to worry about sharpening it. This gel crayon helps to define the shape of your brows. You can draw light strokes in an upward motion to fill in any sparse areas that you may have.
On the opposite end is a doe shaped sponge and a cream powder that is stored in the cap. This is my favourite part of the product. The sponge is spring-loaded to ensure that it covered in the powder once you close it. The powder helps to set your brows in place. It also enhances the colour of your brows so that it looks more defined and fuller.
If I am in a rush I just run the powder over my brows and I am set for the day. Since I always wear glasses I prefer setting my brows as opposed to doing a complete eye makeup look with eyeshadow and liner. The Maybelline brow satin duo sets to a matte finish to mimic natural-looking brow hair. I have relatively thick brows and I love that it makes my brows look bold. However, if you have very thin eyebrows then you will struggle with the powder end of the product because the sponge is a bit big. It would be advisable to have a cue tip on hand to neaten up the edges if need be.
There are three colours in the range namely, dark blonde, medium brown, and dark brown. It retails for R109.95 and can be found at your nearest Clicks and Dischem store.
