Over time I’ve learned that filling in my brows gives my face a more finished look when it comes to wearing makeup. Whether I’m doing a full face or just some mascara and liner a filled in brow goes a long way. Since I like to fill in my brows I decided to take a break from my usual powder and give a more budget friendly product a shot.
The Maybelline Define and Fill Duo is a pencil and powder in one product. You use the pencil side to define your brows and the powder side fill them in. The pencil side reminded me of more expensive products like Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz because of the retractable pencil.
