Brow Tint Gel
Category : Beauty
Here’s a great new idea from Korean beauty firm Etude House – a DIY eyebrow dye that works on both brow hairs and the skin beneath to give you the eyebrow shape of your dreams.
This sort of thing is particularly useful in Asia, where ladies frequently shave off their eyebrows and paint in new ones every day. If you have been doing this for a while, or have simply over-plucked your eyebrows, you can find they don’t grow back properly and need a lot of work with pencils and brushes to fill in any gaps.
Tint My Brows Gel promises to address this problem by giving you an eyebrow that lasts far longer than anything you can apply with a make-up pencil. The gel needs to be applied thickly in the required shape, then left for at least 2 hours to dry.
Surprisingly, once the product is on your eyebrows it is easy to forget it is there, which means you can get quite a surprise if you catch sight of yourself in a mirror. Taking it off is a little tricky, as you want it to peel away from your eyebrows without bringing any of them with it, so it pays to take your time and pick gently rather than pulling it off in one go.
The result is really impressive. The gel looks very dark whilst it is drying, but it leaves a subtle colour on the hairs and skin which nicely replicates the look of a carefully applied eyebrow pencil – except this does not wash off or rub onto your pillow. For before, during and after, see below.
At S$15.90, this was worth every penny and I suspect that several tubes of it will be heading back to England after the summer holidays are over.
