This is great. The eyebrows really stay in place and the color doesn't fade. I used darkest brown and it looked just right. Much more long lasting than the popular elf studio eyebrow kit... which I'm not crazy about.
The brush might seem thick but its just enough actually. Packaging sucks though. I lost the colored end of the wand because it dropped off somewhere after I capped it in.
Still, I prefer this to pencils and powder/wax kits and I'll buy again if I come across it!
I was a bit skeptical about this product l, but I love the idea! So I thought hey, why not give it a try. I've been plucking my eyebrows since I was 12, and it's not pretty so I was praying that this would maybe promote some new hair growth. I've been using it for about a month, and I honestly think it is helping a bit. I have noticed my brows coming back slowly but surely. Nothing drastic, but it got me excited. As for the tame part of the wand, I found it to be way light. I got it in medium and it has an orange tinge to it. I don't dislike it to the point where I wouldn't buy it again, but is recommend if you buy it, choose the shade darker than you normally would. But all in all, I really like this product.
Would I buy this product again? HELL NAW!! I was so excited to try this product but I was so upset with the brushes on both the clear and dark brown gel. When I opened the dark brown gel, the brush was soo clumpy !! Imagine having shit clump all over a mascara wand. THAT'S WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE! And for the clear gel the brush was like a lipgloss brush, I expected a mascara-like-wand and it just didnt do it for me! Oh geeze this is horrible.
I got this product in deep and really like it. The product is a little lighter than my brow color, but that's good since I'm pretty fair and they don't need to be darkened. This product holds my brows in place, but doesn't have the gross stiff feeling that the Anastasia brow gels have. For $3 I am very happy and will probably repurchase.
I am totally delighted with this product! I bought it on a whim to get free shipping from ELF and was very pleasantly surprised. I have been looking for an eyebrow product similar to this, like the ones from Anastasia, but I haven't wanted to pay for it. This product was EXACTLY what I was looking for. I bought it in Dark, which looks natural with my dark brows and light brown hair -- note that the Dark is not truly a "dark" colour, but more of a milk chocolate, medium/darkish brown. Although my brows are dark brown, my hair is lighter, so this is a good match; if you have dark brown or black hair, I would go with Deep. The applicator tends to dispense a bit too much product, so I wipe it lightly on the side of the tube. When applied, it makes my eyebrows look neater, more defined, and nicely groomed, but not super dramatic or Brooke Shields-y. I have used the "treat" side a few times, and I think that it helped me grow in a little area that I overplucked, which was awesome! I will definitely repurchase!
I wanted to try this instead of blowing money on much more expensive brand.I had looked at. I bought it in Light and am really happy with the results. I have thin fairly dark brows and this product filled them in nicely
Use TREAT at night for:
1) growing in thin or patchy brows
2) growing back plucked brows, (worked on me after years of plucking!)
3) soft healthy brows with less fall out
4) Works as brow "hair gel" if you want to comb brows into pretty shape at night after applying ;).
The TAME side is good for:
1) A thickening coating of color on brow hairs that stays better than pencil or gel.
3) Filling in patchy areas on brows. Tame really sticks to skin.
4) Sets as a flexible "fixative" so you can comb or or brush up brows with decent hold.
Tame can be messy til you get the hang of it. To get it on right:
- Wipe brush on inside of container.
- Brush along natural line of brow and let it DRY before shaping. OR use Tame brush to color and shape, then use a swab to wipe excess before it drys.
2) To fill in bare patches, dip eyeliner brush in Tame. I use ELF Studio Angled Eyeliner brush to draw in little hairs where I need them. Let Tame dry before touching or applying other makeup to avoid smudging.
2) If your brows are thin but too dark, use as light shade of Tame to thicken and subtly lighten.
I much prefer the eyebrow kit to this. First the eyebrow kit is much easier to use because you can apply it more accurately. My main problem to this is the tame side's wand... It's horrible the wand is really bad quality and makes me apply to much of this. This is the only ELF product I don't use. Other then that I love the treat side, I've never really cared about my eyebrows but I read somewhere that groomed eyebrows enhances your apperence so I started plucking and grooming. My eyebrows are thin and I don't have a huge amount of hair as I would like after using the treat side a couple of times a week I can see a result in the growth of my hairs my eyebrows are finally starting to get thicker!!!
i really like this i only use the treat side few times a week after plucking it does help them go nice and soft, i use the tame side everyday it makes my brows a nice colour and look defined.
will be buying once finished .
I prefer the ELF brow kit instead of this. I bought the color medium, its kind of reddish =( When the "gel" dries it feels like dried glue on the brows. The treat side didnt do anything for my brows.
Wont buy again
I bought this product on a whim and I actually really like it. I was using the Anastasia brow gel before and I actually like this product better. I don't use the "treat" side very often so I can't really comment on that but I love the "tame" side. It's very natural looking yet makes my brows look more polished. I have pretty full brows to begin with so I don't like to fill them in. If I do, I tend to look a little more Brooke Shields than I would like. I use the tame side on it's own just to get my brows under control.
The packaging actually has a very luxe Nars-esque feel that I love. Plus it's only 3 dollars!
