Product Review -- Maybelline Brow Drama Pomade Crayon

I've got to be honest.

For a long time, I didn't think doing my brows was important.

Really, the most I would do is comb them and use a clear gel to comb them into place.

They're not naturally perfect by any stretch of the imagination -- I went a little tweezers-crazy in high school so there'll a little sparse in a couple of spots -- but I've just never really thought it made much difference whether I filled them in or not.

Then I had someone run a little brow pencil through them -- nothing crazy or too heavy -- and I couldn't believe how much better I looked.

So now, I always take the time to put at least a little something in my brows when I'm doing my makeup, and I have quite a few pencils, powders, colored gels, etc. that work really well for it.

But there are some days I'm going for a more low-key look or I'm in a rush and don't really have time to do my brows more carefully.

Fortunately, I've found a product that's perfect just for days like that, the Maybelline Eyestudio Brow Drama Pomade Crayon.

Unlike most brow pencils, which are fairly thin and can take a little time to apply, the Brow Drama Pomade Crayon is thick, so you can apply your brow color much more quickly.

It comes in a twist-up style applicator as well, so you don't have to worry about sharpening it.

The formula itself is creamy, so it applies easily, but also somewhat thick, which allows it to hold your brows in place.

It is decently pigmented, too, but it probably doesn't offer the same precision of thinner style pencils or brow powders, so if that's the look you prefer, you may not enjoy the Pomade Crayon.

I purchased it in Blonde, the lightest shade, and it works well with my brows, which are naturally a dirty blonde shade. However, I think I'm going to pick up the Auburn shade as well, because I dye my hair red and when it's freshly colored, I like to do a little darker with my brows.

I've seen some people express concern over the point of the crayon eventually becoming dull because it's a twist-up pencil. I suppose that could happen, but I've been using mine for over two months and when it's dulled from the sharp point that it came with, it's still precise enough for me to deposit the pomade exactly where I want it.

All in all, I really enjoy this product for days when I want to get my brows tamed and defined without a fuss.

It retails for approximately $9.99 wherever you can find Maybelline products.

Have you tried the Maybelline Brow Drama Pomade Crayon? Are you a fan?


  1. Haha - that first bit sounded awfully familiar. I too didn't really care about my brows untill I did them for the first time - such a difference.
    That brow crayon intimidated me at first. It looks soooo big! O_O
    do you sharpen it or ?

    1. Yeah, once you see the difference that brows make, it's hard to go back to not doing them. lol

      It's a twist up pencil, so you can't sharpen it. And it's definitely thick, so it's not the best option for days when you want super precise, defined brows. On days when I just want to fill them in, though, this allows me to get them done in a hurry.

    2. I think I could work with that for a while but then... I really don't think I could make my eyebrows look even. It'like like drawing a liquid line over my eyes - first one is perfection and then the other.... I'm still a rookie in the symetry department.
