Maybelline Eye Studio Master Shape Brow
I bought this today and couldn't wait to write a review. I Got my eyebrows threaded today, the shape was great but I wanted my eyebrows to be more defined, and I have slightly 'patchy' eyebrows. So I walked into boots and found this! I love everything about it right down to the packaging. Only there is a small problem, when you use it in your eyebrows, the nib wears down quit quickly even though you have to press quit hard to get it to draw out the product. Which means you will probably have to sharpen it a lot if you are going to use this product everyday, which I am not going to do, only on weekends. An advantage is that it is softly waxy, hence why it is so hard to get out, but it doesn't only fill in and define your eyebrows naturally, it helps keep the hairs in place. I love this! I have sort of light brown hair so I got the shade dark blonde. , its best to get a colour a little lighter than your hair colour because colours come out a lot darker on your eyebrows. Come with a hand eyebrow groomer comb attached as well. Will be repurchasing when I run out.

Waste of pencil wood
My eyebrows where longing for some defining so I ordered this online.If I had been in store I would of walked away-yeah THAT bad.
The colour looked brilliant so as I liked the look of the outside-with handy sizing guide I was expecting something special.
Alas,what I got was something so childlike it made my Girl's World (remember them?) crayon pencil look professional.After the first few strokes with little colour coming out I sharpened it thinking I would get some nice lines made with this,but all I got was a waxy mess with so little colour I had to look twice where I thought I had applied it.
Luckily it was so greasy it wiped away with just one wipe of a tissue!
I tried again,after sharpening it again and the same thing happened.By this time I had sharpened away so many times I was wondering if there was some kind of mistake,but checking the packaging(what was left of it,most of it was now in the bin)I had not.
Not what I was expecting from such a normally good brand.
Recommend this to your enemy,definitely not your friends

lovely subtle blonde natural looking but no staying power
Out of all the blonde eyebrow pencils I have tried this has to be the best most natural shade of blonde, once applied your eyebrows look so natural with no 'pencilness' or unnatural shade, when you are applying its almost like it draws actual eyebrow hairs on for you! However, I deducted 2 stars as this seemed to slide off after a few hours (probably because it is wax based) and therefore will need re-applying every few hours and as the nib wears down quickly this will be used up in no time at all.
