Maybelline Brow Drama


 I’ve never tried a tinted brow gel and it’s never really appealed to me so I’m perhaps not the target audience here but the whole concept of this had me interested so I had to buy it to review for you guys. Right off the bat I’m going to admit I will never use this again, it’s not designed for sparse brows like my own as they need more definition than taming but I can see how it would work for someone with thicker brows who just wanted to tint and set.


 You can see in the picture above that the tint it sheer so if like me you need more filling than taming it’s not going to be for you. I do like the shape of the brush however and found it easy to control however I’m not sure how well it would work on the thinner part of the brow as the narrower part of the brush is not really useable. As for how it feels I would liken it to any mascara, you can feel it but if you do have unruly eyebrows that will be a plus as it will really keep them in place.

My only negative note (apart from the fact that it’s not really suitable for me) is the name.. although I can see it sculpting already voluptuous brows it’s not going to be creating much in the way of DRAMA. It’s a basic tinted brow set with a funky wand.. and up to now there’s been a gap in the lower end market for a product of it’s kind but I think the advertising is overselling it’s capabilities a smidge.

    Every review I’ve read seems to hate this. I like it, but I have thick-ish dark, almost black brows that don’t need filling in, just taming. Clear mascara doesn’t hold them enough and this is stronger and works well for me.
    I think it works best as more of a gel to keep them in place rather than adding any filling in.

    I used this to purely set my brows after I’ve filled them in, I find this helps to tame them but I agree it’s not good for filling in xx

    As soon as I first saw the advert for this I knew it’d cater a very limited amount of people! Nowadays it’s all about the bigger the better! Love the honesty in this review xxx

      yes bigger is better but I hoped that this might help to great the illusion of big brows.. nope

    I got this and HATED it it felt tacky heavy and to be honest it would need two brushs or else the thin end at the oposite to what it is now. Love that your honest and didn’t rave about this unnesacery product.

      I love eyebrow products but for me this is definitely not great 🙁 no point in saying it is!

    I was thinking of buying this but this review has really helped! Not sure if it would work well on me… Thanks!

    I found it to be something i really didn’t have an opinion on, like it just does what it says, there’s no wow factor to it, but no reason to hate it either.

    I colour in my brows so I only use this to try and keep the shape as they tend to point downwards if left to their own devices. For that it is fab, much better than any of the clear mascaras from the drugstore I was using before in that it is weightless and keeps shape all day long. I would definitely buy again but I agree it isn’t for those who need definition x

    I purchased this too, and found it worked well to keep my brows in check, after I had filled in my brows, but because of the large sculpting end I found it too big from the arch to the end of my brow, but would be great for the fuller browed lady or man 🙂

    I’m a redhead and I loved this product. Some of my brow hairs are grey and this covered nicely, not too dark. I will buy this again.
