I picked up the Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer Mascara as part of my Maybelline haul this week and I have to say this unusual product works wonders on my brows. It comes in 5 shades: Medium Brown, Blonde, Soft Brown, Deep Brown and Auburn. I got the Blonde shade.
What’s to love?
The oval wand is pretty much like a standard mascara brush but the real magic of the product are the tiny hair-like fibers in the formula. According to Maybelline this product is a “fiber infused gel”. At first the little fibers creeped me out because I wasn’t expecting them to be so large. The theory is that the fibers make your brows fuller by adding volume rather than just color.
I applied the brow mascara by swiping my brow from the inside to the outside. I found it to be a little bit hard to apply and it felt very wet. I did apply it in my Maybelline Haul video and I’ve gotten more more skilled at putting it on with practice. Maybelline does suggest wiping the excess product off before you start and this did help with the wetness.
The main goof I made on my first application was pushing the wand too hard against my brows. It works much better if you “comb” your brows in short strokes.
I actually have pretty thick brows so I don’t need a huge amount of volume but my moms brows are very thin and she did find that it gave her more fullness.
Overall I think this is a neat product for natural brow filling however I wish the wand was a little bit better. It was slightly hard to control however I think the overall look was nice.
It had a very low odor for me and is Made in the USA.
