New for fall, Maybelline is extending its brow line with the addition of the new BrowDrama Pro Palettes ($16.99 CAD). Available in four shades (Blond, Auburn, Soft Brown, and Deep Brown), the BrowDrama palettes come with everything you need to up your brow game. To see some swatches and a demo of the "260 Deep Brown" palette, click.......

The BrowDrama Pro Palette comes in a simple black plastic compact. The palette holds three pans and there are two slots for a spoolie and a duo-ended angled-brow brush. The brush is of decent quality and it works pretty well at applying both the wax and the powder.

Inside the "260 Deep Brown" palette, there is a dark brown wax, a dark brown brow powder, and a soft pearlescent pink shimmer highlight. The wax has a nice and quick-setting texture while the highlight is very creamy and smooth. The brow powder is a tad patchy but with the brown wax as a base, the duo provides a natural but full coverage. I would have preferred the option of a grey-black color selection for those with black hair but the deep browns make an okay pairing.

Below is the before and after of the BrowDrama Pro Palette. I used both the wax and the powder and a tiny touch of the highlighter on my brow bones. As you can see, the result is actually pretty natural!

This is a pretty good brow kit. I personally prefer using just a simple brow liner but I suppose for special occasions when I have a lot of time to do my makeup, I would use this instead. I like that the wax is colored and it works as a great base for the brow powder to really adhere to. Finally, the little tools included with the palette actually prove to be quite useful, no additional tools are required!

The BrowDrama Palettes are available starting October in drugstores nationwide.
