The Drugstore Brow Pencil That Simplified My Routine
A few months ago, I realized I had lost my brow pencil in the most desperate of times: 9 pm on a Saturday. In a panic, I rushed to CVS to see what I could find. (No, I’m not being dramatic; a brow pencil is something I cannot live without, especially if I have major plans that night.) Little did I know, the product I chose—the Maybelline Eye Studio Brow Define And Fill Duo—would become my new staple.
The dual-ended product includes a defining wax pencil on one end (about the width of the Anastasia Brow Wiz) and a pillowy-soft sponge on the other, which dispenses a light dust of the same color. I love the smooth texture of the wax pencil, but that’s not what makes this product so life-changing: it’s the filler powder on the opposite end.
After I apply the pencil to shape and fill any sparse areas, I press the sponge applicator on my brows and run it along every hair. It works like magic to blend and seal the buildable wax color for a natural, defined look. In fact, I haven’t used a brow gel in months!
Plus, it’s so easy to use that even the most brow-filling novices can master it. If you need proof, I was able to achieve flawless brows in a dimly-lit, drugstore parking lot!
Oh, and it’s $7.99, which means I have more room in my budget to spend on Postmates, while still having perfect brows. Dreams really do come true, y’all.
