You guys, I have found my holy-grail brow product.
Let me start by saying that I’m relatively new to the brow game. I didn’t feel the need to start filling in my brows until a few years ago since they are pretty full to begin with. Ever since I started though, I can’t imagine life without a filled-in brow, so now I’m hooked for life. I have tons of pencils, palettes, pomades, gels, you name it. I was never really sold on one particular product until I tried Maybelline’s new Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil.
Guys, it’s life-changing.
Available in four shades (soft brown, blonde, deep brown, and medium brown), this retractable pencil fills in brows like a charm thanks to its angled applicator (with a small spoolie on the other end). The fact that it’s angled and teardrop shaped make it perfect for giving you a precise line that goes on bold and stays there. Unlike other brow pencils, you don’t need to press hard to get awesome coverage with this, I just merely follow the shape of my brow to get amazing pigmentation that lasts all day.
I typically find brow products to be quite faint when I apply them, which is great if you don’t have a lot to work with off the bat. Since my brows are already full, I just fill them in at the top and a little at the bottom, but there’s something about this pencil that makes them look so pro.
Like I said, I’ve tried a lot of pencils, but this one is my new favourite. I have never had a brow product truly blow me away until now. I received the colour medium brown, which matches my dark brows perfectly. This pencil is part of the brand’s new Total Temptation collection, which launched earlier this month with their new mascara (read my review here).
Also part of the collection is the Eyeshadow + Highlight palette, which contains eight shadows and two highlighters. This cool-toned palette is split up into two different looks, with the left-hand side featuring coral/pink-tones and the right having purple/brown tones. There is also a gold and pink highlight in the middle. Featuring a mix of shimmer and matte shadows, this palette is great for everyday wear. I’ve been using it a lot lately since it’s nice to just throw on for daytime looks. I’ve been gravitating more towards the pink colours, however, I have thrown in some shades from the other side as well.
Like I said, this is a great everyday palette, and perfect for travel. The colour pigmentation is nice, but I do have to say it is on the lighter side. i also want to note that there is a bit of fallout from the shadows as well. Overall though, if you are looking for a good palette with versatile colours, I would look into this one.
Awesome products aside, I’m also really digging the whole coral packaging. I know it’s such a little detail and when it comes down to it it doesn’t matter what colour the package is, but it definitely makes the whole collection pop a little more when it’s stored (not to mention it’s easy to spot in overfilled makeup drawers :P).
Will you be picking up any products from the Maybelline Total Temptation collection? Seriously guys, try the brow pencil, you won’t be disappointed!
