Review: Maybelline Brow Drama

A & C: if you saw our recent shopping haul post (click here if not!), you may have noticed that we both invested in the Maybelline Brow Drama. We had heard some really good reviews, and good eyebrows are important in life so we decided to give it a go and review this badboy for you all!

C: I have spent an insane amount of time practicing the art of eyebrow drawing and have finally perfected it – life goal complete. However, my unruly brows decide that after all the time I have spent on them they still want to move about/go fluffy/do things eyebrow hairs shouldn’t be doing… so after reading lots of reviews I decided this was the product for me. I got this for £4.99 in Asda, and I think it might be one of the best £5’s I have ever spent (which I say after spending any money to justify it, but in this case I am not fibbing).

It is basically eyebrow mascara… which is a strange concept. But I draw in my eyebrows as usual, and then brush over them with this to make them look more natural and to keep them in place. Now I personally still need to draw in my eyebrows, but if you are just looking for a little more definition/tameness then this would be perfect to use on it’s own too! It lasts all day, doesn’t disappear and keeps my brows in check. True love. 

 A: To be totally honest with you, I can’t wait for people to stop obsessing over eyebrows because mine are practically non existent – which makes my face look stupid now that it’s super fashionable to have amazing eyebrows. They’re where they should be and their shape is fine and they’re pretty full, but they are so unbelievably fair that they’re invisible! So I’ve taken to using an eyeshadow to fill them in purely because it’s the perfect colour for my weird ginger skin. But eyeshadow does not last all day, so by mid-afternoon I’m back to crazy-no-eyebrow lady. But like Chloe, if I just comb this through my brows, after filling them in with my eyeshadow, it gives them definition (not just one solid block of colour) and keeps the shadow in place for the rest of the day! I was unsure whether to get the clear or medium brown as they’re were no testers available to check the tone – and after going for the brown, although I really like it, I am intrigued to see how the clear would look so I may well purchase this next time. So for £4.99, this really is a bargain – it’s quick and super easy to use (even for brow novices like myself!)

A Saturday Haul

A&C: Yesterday we took a trip to our local town and had a mooch around lots of different shops. Amazingly, we didn’t buy any clothes – but with Chloe’s baby belly slowly growing, she had more exciting stuff to buy. We got a real mixture of bits and bobs because we started in Asda, then headed to Dunelm and finished off at The Range (our second favourite shop after TK Maxx). So what did we get?

A: Firstly, some treats from the cosmetics aisle in Asda. Brow drama by Maybelline in Medium Brown. My eyebrows have always been my nemesis. They’re so fair that they’re practically non-existent, and I normally fill them in with eyeshadow. But this does have the tendency to wear off so by the end of the day they’ve normally disappeared. But after I saw Chloe pick this up I thought I might as well give it a go – and it was only £4.99 so a bargain if it does the trick! I then picked up some summery coloured nail varnishes, two from George at Asda’s own make up brand (they were 2 for £3 so I obviously couldn’t just get one!), the lilac and the pale coral. And a super pale mint green from Maybelline’s Speed Dry Collection, which I can’t wait to use!

And from The Range Chloe talked me into buying this hideous (but amazing?!) rug for my living room, which was just £11.99. And this beautiful lampshade was my favourite purchase of the day, with a gorgeous floral print and brightly coloured peacocks. This was £6.99 – a bargain which will be perfect to use as inspiration to decorate my bedroom.

C: so basically Annie copied me on the Brow Drama – I have seen loads of good reviews, and now I have perfected drawing in my eyebrows I need something to keep them in place all day! And then I proceeded to copy Annie’s nail polish choices! I needed a new lilac as I spilt mine (wahhhh) so I also chose these two in the colours “cool lilac” and “fuzzy peach”. First impressions are good for such cheapies, as I quickly painted my nails yesterday afternoon and they haven’t chipped yet even though I didn’t have time for a top coat!

I then got this amazing duck egg blue light shade from Dunelm homestore for £12.99 that is gonna look absolutely beautiful in my new bedroom once we move, and this flamingo fabric for £8.99 a metre! I am in love with this fabric, and I am going to get my lovely mother to make some curtains for my nursery with it – as I found out a couple of weeks ago that we are having a girl! This is perfect for us, as we don’t want her room to be bright pink and overly girly. Then lastly I got the same light shade as Annie! Its horrid and I have had to hide it from L so he doesn’t moan but I don’t care I love it!

Let us know what you think of our hauls! We don’t get time to go shopping anymore (boo to Chloe working weekends and having too much uni work) so hauls are few and far between and we loved getting the chance to actually go shopping! #twolittleowls
