Maybelline Brow Drama

29 October 2014

I picked up the Maybelline Brow Drama sculpting brow mascara recently, in the hopes of finding a cheaper drugstore alternative to my favorite brow product Benefits Gimmie Brow.
At £17.50 for a very small amount Gimmie Brow is expensive and although i really do like it, with the drugstore brands bringing out their own versions i thought it would be worth testing a few out. I picked up Maybelline's Brow Drama in Dark Blonde, it is a good colour perhaps slightly darker than the Gimmie Brow in Light/Medium but i don't mind as I'm starting to prefer them to look a bit darker now a days. The first thing i noticed about Brow Drama is how odd the brush is, as you can see from the pictures above its long and thin and then has a strange ball shaped bit at the end. I don't really no what they had in mind when designing the brush at all, i find it quite hard to use and just a bit pointless to be honest, what exactly is the need for the long thin bit of the brush? Also i find the actual ball at the end a bit large for my eyebrows which means i often smudge it in places leaving a far than perfect application, not impressed! So when we get past the odd applicator and dodgy application does it get any better? In my opinion no not really! I find the consistency of the product very thin and watery, and as you can see from the swatch above for a product that claims to not be clumpy, that is in-fact exactly how the product comes out, thin and watery in places with thick clumpy patches.
On the plus side i don't think it looks bad on the eyebrows, when applied correctly and thoroughly brushed through to avoid clumpy patches, it defines my eyebrows well and gives them extra shape and definition, when dry it does feel a bit crispy but it does last all day and will keep your eyebrows firmly in place.
So overall not a rave review, i have been using it but only because i have nothing else to use at the minute, would i buy it again? Definitely not, i have actually just ordered the Anastasia Dip Brow Promade in the hopes my brows will forgive me...

Have you tried the Maybelline Brow Drama? What did you think?


  1. this really looks like not such a good product. and what a weird brush! I think it would be okay without the huge ball at the end which just defeats the purpose of the whole long brush...
    great to hear your opinion on this, will definitely not be buying. thanks!

  2. I know what you mean - I think the product would be so much better if the wand was just that little bit smaller! xx

  3. I don't know if its because I have very bushy brows but I love the shape of the brush! I much prefer Makeup Rev's product but I use this brush with it.
