This was an eye opener for me! My brows have always been low maintenance. They are not to thick, not to thin, soft-looking, with a nice natural shape — which btw were sources of my teenage insecurities. Back then, my brows were considered bushy compared side-by-side with the usong (trending) ala-Jennifer-Aniston thin sharp eyebrows lol! So I mostly just use an eyebrow pencil to “fill in the hair gaps”.
I thought brow products like chubby cream crayons or brow mascaras were new brow trends made to spice up everybody’s routine and thought that they were basically just the same. Don’t get me wrong you can use any of these on your brows and make them work up to a certain point but eyebrows come in different shapes and sizes and therefore have unique “needs”. These needs require unique brow products. Here’s a beauty 101 run down from Maybelline that will tell you which brow product is best and right for your brow needs.
MAYBELLINE FASHION BROW CREAMY PENCIL

MY TOP TWO
my brow type : somewhere in between thin and thick,
could use help with enhancing its shape
I used Maybelline Fashion Brow Promade Crayon on the photo above. At first I was scared that this product is going to make my brows look like a preschool drew my brows with a Crayola crayon lol! But thankfully it didn’t. I ended up really liking its creamy-easy-to-blend texture. It applies so smoothly! The only downside is that since the tip is chubby it could be hard to use it on your brows narrow edges. I also recommend you use a brow brush to enhance the look of this product on the brows.
The Maybelline’s Fashion Brow 3D Cream Pencil is my favorite product from this collection. I like to use the creamy pencil to fill in the gaps in my brows and then use the brush tip to soften the fillers. My brows are not actually shapeless but it could use a little help to enhance its natural shape. Plus a sharpened pencil tip makes it easier to reach the narrow edges of my brows.
