Most Helpful Positive Review Best for dense or thicker brows.
I have thin very sparse brows so even if this is a quick product it is not for me! If you have thin brows and prefer something precise than this is not for you! This is a product better suited for thicker or dense brows that need a quick pick me up. This is not for someone who needs to be precise and ultra specific in product application for brows to even look acceptable. That being said I will list why this has four stars. This product goes on smoothly. There is no tugging of the skin or brow hairs. It looks a little gross due to the fibers but I just don't look at it. It is a thicker crayon best suited for a quick application. This is for the girls who want to or only need to slap something on however and be beautiful rushing out the door. I am not that person this is not for me. This is for sure not moving on your brows. I had to scrub them to remove it. This is staying put! It does not feel heavy or thick. It also doesn't keep any brow hairs down. I give this four stars due to the swiftness that it applies, the longevity, the pay off, and the fact that it is buildable. It does not have a spoolie nor is it precise. If you want both of those look for them elsewhere. I would recommend this to someone who isn't as particular with their brows like I am. This product was sent to me complimentary by I N F L U E N S T E R for testing purposes.

I can't lie, about the only thing I enjoy about this product is the shade (I received 255 Soft Brown - not too warm or too dark). The fiber extension concept simply didn't work for me. I did not find the fibers came off on my brows or the skin under them, but rather simply lingered on the tip of the crayon. Though it is just my personal preference, I also don't love how thick the crayon itself is - I felt it made it more difficult to avoid blocky brows. When used in upward strokes as suggested, the formula does seem to provide a wax-like hold on your brow hairs, helping to keep them in place assuming you brushed them up prior to application. Overall, my low rating boils down to the fact I believe there are other brow products available at a comparable price point that simply perform better. I didn't feel like the main claim of the product, the extensions, delivered in any positive way, and there were no other aspects that I liked enough to make up for it.

FLKat from FL
It fills in thin brows really nicely and it does not run or smudge with sweat. You need to use, lotion or soap to remove.
Love this product
Barb J from CA
I love this product. It gives me thick, bushy brows that I've always wanted. I have stopped using brow pencil and just use this. I use a combo of blonde and soft brown.
Not For Me
shoegal from Las Vegas
This might be easier to use if the "crayon" was a little more pointed. This would allow you to make hair like strokes where you are missing eyebrows. I have heard some people remark that you should continue to move the tip around around so that you get more of a point.
This is way too much work when there are other better products on the market.
Katie from Michigan
Y'all this is good I finally picked it up! I've recently grown out my brows during quarantine but still struggle with some sparse areas..THIS PRODUCT IS SO GOOD!!! And the shade of blonde is perfect ! I struggle with maybelline blonde colors being too warm but this is a cool toned ashy blonde it's perfect and I'm so happy I purchased two on a whim! GET IT AND TRY ITTT!!!
There are hairs in it!!!
CCRA from DC
There are actual hairs in it, it was so gross. I don't know if I got a bad one or what but I threw it away.
Meh. I'll stick with prestige brands.
Amberlee0727 from Surprise, AZ
I returned this because the color was too dark and didn't exchange. I didn't love the application feeling and the size is just too big IMO. It also made my brows just stick to my face and didn't look natural.
Tam from New york
Easy to apply - color nice
BEST colors of any Maybelline brow products.
PeachWood from TN
This is definitely not for sparse brows. You need actual brow hairs for this to look right. However, the Blonde shade is PERFECT for cool-toned blondes. By far the best shade across Maybelline's brow products, other than the Tatoo Studio pomade in Blonde. NOT LIGHT Blonde, just BLONDE. All of Maybelline's products are notoriously too warm which is unfortunate as many are great formulas with a terrible shade range. They need to stick with THESE shades across their entire product line.
I am returning for refunf
Nancy j from Ellenton, fl
This will not come close to filling in where brows have fallen out. There is no control over how to thin at the end of the brow
I 👍 it!
De from Utah
The ends of my eyebrows are sparse and I was pleasantly surprised to see how quickly brow extensions filled them in with light strokes. I then used a spoolie to brush out and they looked great. The thing I really liked is that since this has a slightly waxy texture I didn't need to set my eyebrows with eyebrow gel. If you have oily eyebows, I could see how the product could wear away, but my skin is dry and product held up great all day for me.
Thick beautiful brows
Amber from Washington DC
Love this brow pencil. It is thick so it is useful for filling it a lot at a time. I also feel that it helps my brow hairs to stay in place. It does smudge though it definitely doesn't have the staying power of other brow products I have used. It gets the job done for sure and the color is a nice cool toned match.
Great brow product
Jenn from Modesto
I love this product. It's easy to use and looks natural. The color matched perfectly and I will definitely re buy
Love the idea of this product
Ruu from New york
I like this product because of the waxy texture and it's great for making natural brows look thicker. My issue is the tip of the application has gotten very weird and flaky almost? Hard to describe but basically after a few uses the tip is not smooth anymore and has a weird texture. I still like the product to deepen the color of my brows but I use it with other products because this will not give precision.
Would buy again
gnavD from Fresno,CA
I really like this eyebrow pomade pencil. It definitely took me by surprise because I didn't think I was going to like it at all. My eyebrows are a bit sparse in some areas but this fiber brow pencil made my eyebrows look so much fuller. It's easy to use and good for when you want natural looking brows on a daily basis like me. Just wish the pencil could have been a bit slimmer instead.
I wanted to love it
Miriahv22 from Ohio
I wanted this to be my new-go to brow pomade, but this wasn't it. I found the product very sticky and tough to blend in and appear natural. The fibers do add a bit of volume, but my own eyebrows because completely flat with the stickiness of this. Using just a little bit helps, but it doesn't blend well. I'm glad I tried it, but I wouldn't buy it again.
Dani from Tucson, AX
Does exactly what it says, works really well but may be more effective for someone with thinner eyebrows. Did not notice much of a difference compared to regular brow pencil but would highly recommend if thinning brows are a concern.
Taytor Tot from Virginia Beach, Va
I have mixed feelings about this product. For me, it works well, but I have used other products that work better. The dark brown color matches my eyebrows perfectly, which was a plus, but you have to have a light hand when applying. As others have stated, it's very pigmented. I also, don't mind the thickness of the pencil, since my eyebrows are fairly thick (just light), but it's widened does make it hard to give you some control. Lastly, the fibers to make it hair-like do not work. It does not give the eyebrows anymore of a natural affect than other pencils. With this pencil, it's all about the way you apply it versus the advertised hair fibers for more natural looking eyebrows. Overall, I like the product, but will most likely not purchase.
Hard pass from me
Bdeshazo90 from Dayton, OH
I tried to like this product, but it just wasn't doing it for me. I get better results with a brush. The tip of this was just too big for me, the strokes weren't fine enough to look like hair. I gave it two stars because it is easy to use.
Quick and Easy
Kaypee from Riverside
I can put this in my bag and when I get to work, I can apply this quickly. Gives me good coverage and pigment and doesn't look like sharpie
ChilledLatte from NC
This surprised me a bit. I was thinking that I would hate it, but I don't. It's pigmented without overdoing it. The fibers seem super unnecessary though. They don't do anything (for me at least), so they could have left those out and called this a pomade stick. My big complaints are there isn't a soft black and there's no spoolie. I used my Boy Brow to neutralize the warmth and it did the trick, but it would be nice for a larger shade selection. The other is there's nothing to brush or comb it out. This needs a spoolie to blend and soften the look. Add a brush and this would be a great on the go product.
Casey from San Jose, CA
I felt like the crayon was too large to do brows with us. It was hard to do the tail of the brow. I can see this product take some time getting used to
good and versatile fiber pomade
leahj from Louisville, KY
i really like using this fiber brow pomade crayon overall. you can make it as subtle or intense as you'd like, especially if you choose to brush out your brows after or not. my only qualm is the thickness of the crayon can make having control of the strokes you make. overall it is great!
Easy to use
Nikki from Los Angeles, CA
Easy to use product that makes filling my brows quick and simple.
Decent for filing brows
GG from Cleveland, OH
I liked the color for someone with medium brown hair. It also filled in nicely - I liked the fibers and the natural look it gave. Unfortunately it rubbed off really easily. I don't prefer it to the brow pen I currently use.
Not a fan
Shelby from St. Louis, MO
This product is too thick to create hair like strokes. The fibers are too short and thin to look like real hairs. I found my eyebrows just looked painted on and I couldn't really see the fibers.
