Review: Maybelline Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil

Review: Maybelline Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil

I think the last time I wrote about eyebrow pencils was when I was using Anastasia brow wiz. Don’t get me wrong, I still really like Anastasia BUT I have found a cheaper version that I thought I would share with you guys.

It’s no surprise how much I like using Maybelline products so when I ran out of Anastasia (quickly too might I add) I had to seek an alternative. There was no way I had another $20 to spend on just my eyebrows. So while shopping in CVS one day I decided to check out Maybelline, my favorite non-expensive makeup brand. Of course they had an eyebrow pencil but would it be any good?

It’s safe to say it was better than good and down right great for the price ($5). It comes in many shades which is a huge bonus. My eyebrows are a lot darker than my actual hair so it’s helpful to find a shade that is actually  called “dark blonde”.

So basically I am pretty happy with this purchase, considering I’ve been using it for the past couple of months. It get’s the job done without spending a lot. I haven’t tried many other eyebrow pencil brands, but if you have, please leave us a comment below with your suggestions.

Re-think New York Color

New York Color or better known as NYC at CVS or your local drugstore is often overlooked. You will find it on an end-cap in the makeup section but if you look closely you will find some great products. It’s known for being very inexpensive but that shouldn’t stop you from taking a look.

It’s no secret that I love brands such as Benefit and Anastasia but as of lately this girl is on a serious budget. The other day I was in my local CVS trying to find a cheapish nail polish. I of course went right over to OPI and Essie but I just couldn’t justify spending $8 on nail polish especially since it seems to chip 2 days later anyways. I stumbled upon a great shade from Maybelline and as I was making my way to the top-coats I saw NYC. Again, I could spend more money on a top-coat polish from Sally Hansen or I could spend .99 on one from NYC.

The choice was pretty easy. While I was picking up the top-coat polish I really started to give the rest of their products a closer look. I noticed that they had made a lip color that was identical to Clinque’s Chubby Stick and I believe a few other makeup brands sell a similar one. I had been interested in trying out a new shade, lately I’m obsessed with “nude” colors. I decided to try it. As some one that never lived without their Clinque Chubby Stick, I honestly couldn’t tell the difference.

I walked out of CVS with 3 items and spending $10. Two of which were from NYC. I’ve used both the top-coat polish that is RIDICULOUSLY shiny and the lip color and I’m really happy with both. I’m going back today to scope out a new foundation and eyebrow pencil. It’s really refreshing to find new brands to use that don’t cost a lot. If your on a budget like me I would really recommend NYC.  Tell us what bargain brands you use in the comments below!

Eye Studio® Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadow

Eye Studio® Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadow

So its actually been quite awhile since I’ve bought makeup that  hasn’t been Sephora brand or Avon.  Except while I was at CVS the other day buying body lotion (cocoa butter) to be exact I stumbled upon this new eye shadow by Maybelline. I had seen the commercials but never really thought anything of it, but then thought hey why not try it out.

Well let me tell you that this new 24hr Tattoo eye shadow is hands down the best I’ve never used!

I bought the dark asphalt grey which goes great with the grey eye liner I use but they have quite a few colors to choose from.

I applied it with a small eye shadow brush-it goes on thick but I’m pretty sure that’s how it lasts so long.

I would honestly recommend buying this! Let me know how you like it!
