Review: Maybelline Brow Drama by Eye Studio Sculpting Brow Mascara

Happy Friday! I wasn't planning on blogging today but by some divine miracle, in my drug store rounds I came across the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara. And can we just talk about how much luck I have? I went to Ulta to see if they had it after a couple stops since if I couldn't find the Maybelline product I would just get my trusty Benefit Gimme Brow instead. Ulta didn't have it but they also only had the dark Gimme Brow and I need the light. Then I went to Target and they had it! Lucky day!

This is a new product that seems like it's aiming to be like Benefit's Gimme Brow. Now that brows are such a big thing everyone's jumping on board and it's wonderful! They have three shades of this product: Blonde, Soft Brown and Dark Brown. I got mine in Soft Brown.

 

The brush is definitely different. That big ball on the end is a little scary, no?

Here it is in comparison to Benefit's Gimme Brow.

As you can obviously see, the Maybelline brush is not only a different shape but quite bigger than the Benefit brush.

Now let's see it in action! For comparison's sake, these are my brows filled in with the Anastasia Brow Whiz in Carmel and then topped off with Gimme Brow in Light/Medium.

These are my brows with no product.

What was life before brow pencils? My goodness.

These are my brows with just the Anastasia Brow Whiz.

And finally, with the Maybelline Brow Drama.

The Gimme Brow looks a little softer but I think it's because I'm almost out of it so I wasn't getting the full effect in that photo. I think the Maybelline one does a great job! And those are unplucked hairs on my left eye there, not hairs not being controlled by the product. I wasn't planning on photographing my brows today! :x

Overall I would definitely recommend it. I haven't worn it all day but I would have to image it stays on pretty well. The description claims that it's smudge proof so that's a gigantic plus. I also feel like if you aren't into really sculpting your brows or you don't need to fill in your brows and just want a little hold with a bit of a tint, you can more than likely get away with using this on its own.

Have you found this product anywhere and started using it? Love it? Hate it? Excited to not have to spend $24 on Gimme Brow? I know I am!
