I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! My weekend was great. I went home to spend time with my mother and church family. I also picked up a few goodies from Walgreens while I was home. One of those goodies prompted me to do this review today. I originally wanted to touch on my ZOYA nail polish I finally received last weekend, but I will save that for a future post.
The goodie that sparked my interest today is the Jordana FabuBrow Eyebrow Pencil. Honestly, I haven't used a Jordana product since high school. In fact, I had forgotten about the brand until I saw some of their products recently in the blogosphere. Since I was home, I decided to visit our local Walgreens because by it being a smaller town, they tend to have items in stock longer than in bigger cities. As I was browsing around, I saw this product. I was intrigued by the brush on the end and the price ($3) so I picked it up.
I currently use Maybelline's Define-a-Brow in Dark Brown so I wanted to compare the two. Here are the two swatches:
|Top: Maybelline Define-a-Brow in Dark Brown, Bottom: Jordana FabuBrow in Dark Brown|
- Affordable Prices ($3)
- Long Lasting
- Limited Color Variety
Overall, I do love this eyebrow pencil. The creaminess of the pencil reminds me a great deal of the MAC eyebrow pencil I used at one point, which Maybelline Define-a-Brow lacks. However, I feel that the Maybelline Define-a-Brow really depicts dark brown when you use it. On me, I felt this product was a tad too light. In fact, I used the Jordana FabuBrow pencil to line the brow, but a little bit of Maybelline Define-a-Brow to fill it in. I could see myself purchasing it again, but I do feel I would need a dark shade to do the actual fill in.
Here are a few photos of me wearing this combination I described:
What are your thoughts? Do you use any drugstore eyebrow pencils?
Thanks for reading! Also, I have received a few comments (positive and suggestions) on my eyebrows and I appreciate your comments. God bless!
