*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
A few weeks ago, Influenster sent me the Maybelline Brow Drama VoxBox. I just got around to testing the awesome eyebrow products in the box, which are the Shaping Chalk Powder and Brow Precise Micro Pencil by Maybelline New York. Both products are in the shade Deep Brown.
As someone with thick eyebrows, I tend to spend a lot of time during my normal makeup routine trying to make sure that my brows look normal. And by normal, I mean sans noticeable eyebrow hair gaps (ho do those even end up happening?!) and not sticking out every which way.
I’ve only ever used eyebrow gels and pencils that can be sharpened, so this chalk powder and retractable pencil experience was very new to me.
Here’s what my eyebrows look like without any product (they are combed though, so as not to scare you away):

I used the Shaping Chalk Powder first, and I was very impressed at how well it worked. At first I started to panic because I felt like the powder would make a mess. Then once I swept it over my brows, the color looked waaaayyyy too light.
However, it started to blend in a couple of seconds and I actually kind of liked how natural it looked!

Next up was the Brow Precise Micro Pencil. It comes with an eyebrow comb on one end and the pencil on the other. I wasn’t too impressed with the eyebrow comb because I felt that it didn’t really help tame my brows enough. The pencil does live up to its name though!

The pencil’s thinness made it very easy to fill in any gaps in my eyebrows. I felt way more comfortable using this product as opposed to the shaping chalk.
Overall, I’d recommend the Maybelline Brow Precise Micro Pencil to anyone who deals with sparseness or gaps in their eyebrows on a regular basis. If you’re going for a more natural look, the Maybelline Brow Drama Shaping Chalk Powder is the way to go.
