Spotted Maybelline Define-a-brow Eyebrow Pencil at Dollar Tree!

maybelline define a brow

I know the Maybelline Define-a-Brow has been a drugstore brow-filler favorite among many of us (including myself) and was shocked to see it on the rack at my local Dollar Tree today. There were at least twenty of them, all in the shade Dark Brown. Many have compared this pencil to the MAC Eye Brows retractable brow pencil - I agree!

Apparently Maybelline hasn't discontinued the product, but they discontinued the shade "Deep Brown", which confuses me because I'd assume it'd be a popular shade for dark brunettes.

I think they're trying to re-direct consumers to their newer brow product, the Maybelline Master Shape Brow Pencil, and won't be surprised if they get rid of Define-a-Brow all together. They aren't really comparable products, I like both, but Define-a-Brow has an advantage, as it's retractable (no sharpening) and the product has a small tip (for precise shaping of the brows). Maybelline Master Shape has to be sharpened frequently and due to the soft waxy texture of the pencil, you can't get a very sharp point.

I know stock of discontinued cosmetics will differ from location to location, but I just wanted to make sure you were all aware that you might be able to spot this pencil at Dollar Tree. It's regularly around $8, for only $1 at Dollar Tree - very well worth it!!

  1. Awesome find, Natalie! I tend to steer clear of eyebrow pencils because I feel like they will look unnatural and too harsh on my brows. So, I stick with brow powders-Wet n' Wild's Ultimate Brow Kit in Ash Brown, to be exact. I have always read raves about this Maybelline pencil and I really love how this pencil looks so natural on you.

    Thanks for sharing, Natalie :)

    1. The texture is a bit crayon-like, which is great because it's stiff enough where it's not going to apply a heavy/harsh amount of product, it will keep it's shape and won't break off as easily. They apply smoothly with no problems!

      Currently there are four shades available on the web site. They had six prior. There is light blonde, light brown, Medium Brown and Dark Blonde. I also use the shade Medium Brown.

  6. I really hope that Maybelline isn't going to DC it. That would be a shame. I used to always use this, sometimes I do but I switch from this to the MUFE brow corrector in #3 from time to time. Thanks for the heads up. Gotta check if they have it at my local dollar tree stores!

  9. Your brows are gorgeous. I have always used their twin pack of brow pencil and always end up back to them after I try other brow products out. They have a good range of colors too. I think their just as good, their just a classic pencil packaging.

  21. NO WONDER!!! I've been trying to find Dark Brown everywhere! I was recently on a trip and had forgotten to pack my brow pencil. I went on twitter for recommendations and everyone seemed to direct me to this.

    Definitely going to Dollar Tree to find. Thanks for posting!
