Now, I have only tried this product on twice. At the store and once at home. I love it already but I am in the process of growing out my eyebrows to reshape them but I heard about this product and read great reviews.
I do not really like the packaging just because I think that it is small for $20 and also.. I am sure that I will have a hard time getting a the itty bit that will be left in there when it is almost done. I did read that it lasts a long time though so I guess it is worth it.
I am am excited to use this because I usually use a powder to color in my eyebrows but after a day at work they can easily smudge just like a pencil which is also rough on the hair. So this is something that is waterproof and much easier to apply..
Someone had mentioned using the product straight from the tube but I suggest squeezing some out on your hand first only because straight from the tube might mean youre putting too much on the brush.
I've just recently had to start using a brow product as I've always had dark, full brows. Now that I am in my 40s, some hairs have turned white and I have small gaps. The MA at Sephora matched me to 03 and I have to say that this stuff is GREAT! You only need a tiny bit and a light stroke to get natural looking brows that will last all day. It simply does not budge. I will definitely repurchase.
My favourite brow product. Not the easiest to use but once you get the hang of it it is the best. I use mac 208 and put the tiniest amount in small lid and use brush to do defined brow, a look I love. Packaging is excellent being a tube so product doesn't dry out. I use 03 for my dark brown brows.
I am completely and totally in love with this stuff! I have dark, sparse eyebrows and I've struggled to find something that looks natural but still gives the definition that I need. This product is amazing. You need just the smallest amount for both eyebrows so a tube will last a very long time, making it a great value. I got the color 3 which looks incredibly natural on me. I have very oily skin and this will last all day on me without fading, migrating or smearing. I use my MAC 208 to apply it and have had no application issues. Tiny dot on the back of the hand, coat the brush, start at the front of my brows and work my way through the tails, brush them with a spoolie and perfect all day. Absolute HG item here, can't say enough good things about it.
This became my HG the first time I used it! I have very sparse brows and dark hair so I need to draw them on to look normal. It's so hard to find something that provides a lot of definition and coverage without appearing obviously drawn on. After trying a lot of different types of brow correctors I ended up sticking with the MAC pencil (spiked) but I had to spend so much time blending it in with a sponge tip or brush so it wouldn't look too harsh and I was never totally happy with it but it was the best I had found....until this!
I was prepared for application to be a bit challenging at first based on other reviews but thanks to others great tips, like making sure there's no excess product on the brush, it was actually easier than using a pencil. Since I'm used to fine tipped pencils, my preference is applying it with a bent liner brush and then smoothing over with a thicker dry brush at the end. It goes on smoothly and looks very natural while providing dense coverage. #3 works very well with my coloring, similar to MAC spiked or stud depending on much you build it up.
I also love that applying it with brushes is delicate on my brow hairs. I'm hoping that by eliminating the tugging from a pencil, my brows will hopefully grow in more. I've been using extra dark Jamaican black castor oil (the best) on my brows for about 6 months and have seen considerable regrowth (yay!) so I want to do everything possible to keep it going.
My bf even commented that my brows looked great and he's pretty oblivious to whether I'm even wearing makeup. I finally don't feel self conscious that my brows look fake. I'll be saving money too since you need so little product it should last a long time and I went through pencils like crazy. I can't imagine finding anything better than this other than magically growing thick luxurious brows.
Love this! I just sampled it at Sephora and immediately liked it. It's easy to over do so a little bit goes a long way. I am Nc40-42ish or MUFE 140 or Laura Mericer Vanilla Beige, I have natural dark brown hair it looks really nice in my brows and last all day.
Go buy it!
I use this mostly on my brow tail ... I'm impressed with the staying power and undertone.
I found that applying it before bed gives the most natural appearance. I use an angled Stila liner brush and carefully blend into the tail area. It tends to look a bit overdone so if I sleep in it, I wake with brows looking naturally full and the color oxidizes enough to pass as real.
This is by far the best product for eyebrows! I'm Asian with very sparse eyebrows (I naturally have thin hair) and I've tried powders, pencils, wax fillers, etc but this WORKS. Using an angled brush and various pressure strokes, it can look super natural or dramatic (entirely up to your hand).
I have oily skin so I tend to apply MAC Blot Powder first so it stays on all day during my FT job. I also have a PT job as a groupex instructor at the gym where I teach 60 min intense cardio classes. As in super sweaty. As long as I don't wipe my towel on them, it stays. Just blot/dab at the brows and they're still there! Not super fresh as during the day but I can leave the gym not feeling self-concious (I cannot leave the house without my brows!).
You get a lot of product as you only need the tiniest dab. I would highly recommend this to dark-haired ladies as I think there are only 4 colours available. I'm an NC 30 (MAC) / Med Beige (bareMinerals) and use #3. The 2 lighter colours don't seem light enough for fair-hair ladies but that's just a guess :)
I love this stuff. First off let me just say, yes it is expensive but for what you get it is very inexpensive. I had the BA tell me it would last me about a year. Amazed, I bought it. It has been 2 and a half years and I am still on my first one. So 19 dollars for a product that will last you 2 and a half years is amazing.
Now on to the actual product. I dye my hair dark brown but my eyebrows are super light. It really tricks people into thinking that this is your true eyebrow color. Recently, I had a hair appointment with a hair colorist because I am thinking of going back to blonde (my natural hair color). The lady looked at my roots and said did you dye this? and I said no this is my natural color. Then she said "oh that cant be your natural color your eyebrows are naturally dark" and then I told her that I used this product to color them darker. She was couldn't believe that a product could color them in and look so naturally.
Using a pencil you color in the skin but using this product you color in the hairs without touching the skin underneath. Just make sure before you buy this product if you do not know how to apply it properly just on the hairs of your eyebrow a BA can show you. You just use an angled eyeliner brush use the littlest amount and brushing it on the hairs (not the skin)
It looks so natural I love it. I even tricked a professional hair colorist :)
UPdate 12/10/2012: I still use this everyday and I love it HG
Update 3/14/2013: Still an HG product for me!
It stays on all day. It's a good product, but I got the lightest color and it is far too orangey brown/blond. The color looks fake. Also, the squeeze tube spits our inconsistent doses, so there is a good bit of waste.
