Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara - More Drama than it's Worth?

I purchased the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara about a month ago now but I've been wanting to rant about it from the moment I first swiped it over my brows.

Now, 'mascara' for eyebrows is not exactly a new invention but I think the marketing for this product was particularly effective as many people have gone a bit crazy over it. I was one of them and while I won't say it's a complete waste of £4.99 I will say that it comes pretty close.

I bought the Brow Drama in shade 'Dark Brown' and found that while the formula is nice, the shade isn't really what you would call dark brown. More like 'safe brown' or 'barely there brown'. In fact, it took a good few swipes for it to deposit any real colour at all.

The brush? I JUST DON'T GET IT. Why is it this weird bobble shape? The brush is big, bendy and just plain weird. The size and shape of it means that the colour deposits itself wherever it likes, which is usually just below or just above my brows. Not really a look I tend to go for.
I don't understand why Maybelline didn't just include a good old fashioned spoolie brush which would be much easier to use.

While I'm not impressed with the Brow Drama all is not completely lost as I've been using it as a 'setting gel' over my brow pencil (Rimmel Professional Eye Brow Pencil £2.99) and it seems to hold any strays in place quite well.

I would also say that if you're after a barely-there brow effect, Brow Drama could work quite well for you, so long as you don't mind spending the time tidying up any awol colour.

Have you tried Maybelline Brow Drama? Do you rate is or do you think this is one product that's more drama than it's worth?

Thanks for reading!


  1. I've never used this brow product, but I like using Covergirl's clear mascara on my brows. Mine are dark so I don't need any color added, but the clear mascara keeps them in place. love your blog, i'm your new follower!

  3. Lovely review, I totally agree with some of what your saying it takes a lot of build up for the colour to show anything major but I do love using it! Cute blog btw.... if you get a chance! Would be really grateful thanks xx
