I thought this was fantastic at first. This being the first lash tint I tried on top of the fact that I have blonde lashes. Basically anything was better than nothing. I noticed it was frequently used in salons that offered lash tints as well, so figured it must be the best available. I purchased it myself from Sally Beauty for about $40.00, which includes two levels of brown or black and a tint remover. This includes many uses, so it's far and away cheaper and more convenient than going to a salon every few weeks. Jar packaging is horrible and will spill and stain everything. A jar with plastic cap that would moderate the flow would be much better. Anyway, the color is not vibrant (I've tried the black and brown) and it fades quite quickly (2 weeks). But I thought that was my only option, so I was still happy to have some lash pigment. Then I discovered Intensive Lash & Brow Tint. 100x better. Deep, lasting color, a variety of shades, a proper developer. Intensive is somewhat more expensive, but totally worth it if you have blonde lashes (I suggest getting Deep Brown) I like the Roux tint remover better for getting stains off the skin, that's about it. Will not repurchase.

** OMG UPDATE: I am leaving my review here because Roux is pretty good. BUT if you have access (shipping) and can order 1000Hour Lash and Brow tint - DO THAT INSTEAD. SERIOUSLY. WOW. I am going to leave a review on the page for 1000Hour Lash and Brow. But seriously. It is sooooo much better. You don't have to worry about getting it on the skin. And it's a bolder fuller look because you can get every hair and then shape the brow. I am blonde and fair skinned and it looks natural! Okay that's all I'll say on this page. But just seriously, trust me. Xox **Okay, here's the deal: this stuff is great. It's a subtle accent that I enjoy. I have blonde hair but still a bit of color to my brows. I live in a beach town & rarely wear makeup during the day, so the extra definition is welcome. (Please note, I only used this for my BROWS, something seems wrong about doing it to my lashes, plus I like having blonde lashes sometimes, and mascara is easy enough to apply daily.) I literally just did it for the first time and am quite happy with the results. I think I'll go back in later today and get a few hairs towards the front that I missed. I only gave it three lipsticks for packaging because they should have supplied a better applicator. But here's the scoop: • Firstly, I did all the research that I could possibly do on technique. Everyone was freaking me out with the whole skin staining thing. Don't freak out, it's fine. Just be careful. And if you do get a little spot here and there, just have a q-tip already in the stain remover, simply blot it on the spot and continue on with coloring. It's fine. But I think you do want to do it relatively fast and not wait until after you've rinsed. But that aside, just take a deep breath and have confidence. That being said, I wouldn't even try it if you do have a shaky hand. That's what professionals are for. ;)• After applying Vaseline around the area, I used a disposable spooly (mascara wand) for solution #1. The key is to have a light hand, but to really saturate the hairs, otherwise it simply won't work. Using a magnifying mirror was very helpful. Let this dry for 3 mins. • Then I went in with a small angled brush and lightly and carefully began to brush the hairs with solution #2. I went with the grain and against the grain. Just lightly paint it on each little hair. Don't freak out about getting every single one, you can always go back in for a second round. Let sit for one minute. • Some people suggest using a moist cotton pad to wipe off the dye, but that didn't seem like a good idea to me because it would smear the dye on the skin that I had just do diligently avoided. Thus, I lean over the sink and splash just the brow with cool water then immediately soap up the area and rinse it a few more times. Pat dry and voila!! • Definetly do one brow at a time. Juggling is hard. So that's that! I think eventually I would like to try a brand that it more of a cream that would allow for me to just saturate the whole area and not worry about getting it on the skin. But in the meantime, Roux is a very classic brand and I think I'll continue to use it forever. Because, well, dark brows are smoldering and sexy. Again, like I said earlier, it is a subtle effect. Don't expect this to make your eyebrows fuller or bushier. Subtle though it is, it is a lovely touch to a face. Hope this helped, and happy tinting! Don't freak out, you've got this. :)

I have been using Roux Lash/Brow Kit from Sally's Beauty Supply for a couple years now to cover my gray hairs in my eyebrows. The box kit was a bit pricey but it is well worth the price because the kit will last forever, you will get your moneys worth out of the cost. I occasionally use it on my eyelashes and it turns out nice as well, extra dark lashes usually last 2 weeks. It would be perfect thing to do before going on vacation. There are 3 bottles inside the box: solution 1 which you apply to brows or lashes for 3 minutes, solution 2 which you apply on top of solution 1 and leave on for a minute, next you simply wash the brows/lashes like your washing your face, pat dry. Sometimes, I will take a shower to wash off the solution off.It can stain your skin so take precaution. I would advise not doing this before an important event, wait a day or two so you don't need to explain the stain on your skin or the groucho marx brows. I would say that is the only con of this product for me at least.The brows can come out a bit darker than I like, but with a day or two of showers, the colorfades out nicely and looks completely natural, keeps the stray grays hidden nicelyTip: I take sharpie pen and label the bottle tops with 3 mins or 1 mins to distiniush betweenthe bottles and make my own notes of instruction on index card. The print on the instructions that come with the box are extremely small and difficult to read, not to mention extremely long details, so this makes it easier

I have long, fairly dark lashes already, but the roots and ends are light, so I thought dying them dark black would give more pop overall. The effect is subtle... I don't think anyone would notice but me. It makes my eyes look just a bit more lined, which is nice. I'll probably do this every once in a while, but it doesn't make a big enough difference for me to do it all the time.Having read a bunch of reviews, I was very careful during application. It turned out to be very easy, in my opinion.I used a qtip and a magnifying mirror. I had no problems with the liquid running. I found it easy to stay on my lashes and never got any in my eyes. I got one small dot one the skin under my eye when I was doing my bottom lashes, but it's no big deal, not really noticeable.The packaging is okay.. reviews below talk about blister packs, which would have been horrible, but apparently they've changed the packaging since then and it now comes in little bottles.

I bought this a while back and just started using on my eyelashes, I use the color black. What I do is use Q tips and my big mirror, so I get every lash. It definetly darkens them. I like it because I don't always want to throw on mascara, and my bottom lashes really stand out just by using this product, and I normally don't wear mascara on the bottom lashes. I do it @ every 2 weeks. No irratation or problems. Will always keep this on hand.

Not going to lie! It took me a few tries to get this down to a science. Here’s my method: use a Q-tip to outline around your eyebrows with a thin layer of Vaseline (you are dying your brows, not your face). Using a clean Q-tip, dip one end into the bottle labeled “#1” (easy enough) and apply to your eyebrows (try not to smear the Vaseline. Let that dry about 30 seconds before dipping the other end of the Q-tip into the bottle labeled (#2, this is the dye). You might want to squeeze out the excess fluid by rolling the Q-tip around the mouth of the bottle before applying because, again, you don’t want to dye your face. Carefully apply the dye to your brows and let it dry for 30seconds to one minute. Then I prefer to use a moistened cotton pad to gently dab (or wipe!) away the excess dye as well as the Vaseline. If things got messy, use the #3 bottle (dye remover) but otherwise, the Vaseline should have kept things in check. The box states that the color lasts up to 6 weeks but I re-apply it every 7-10 days. I suppose it might last longer if I let the dye sit longer than one minute but I don’t want it to look like I colored in my eyebrows wit a black Sharpie. Oh, and for the record, I do NOT use this stuff on my eyelashes! If you have longer lashes, you might give it a go but no matter how I tried it, I couldn’t keep the dye from stinging my eyes. I’ll just stick with mascara, thanks. Happy tinting!

I'm appalled that my level of vanity has reached the point where I decide having pretty eyelashes is more important than the risk of doing serious damage to my eyes, but, thankfully, this product is pretty user-friendly if you follow the tips listed by other helpful MUA reviewers. It might warrant applying twice, to get a full effect. Still, it looks really good and is simple (and much less time consuming and expensive than trekking to the Red Door); Worth the investment, since I hate using mascara. My lashes look naturally dark and glossy.

First time trying this product, and i must say, I will NEVER purchase again. The applicators supplied don't work well; the colour stains skin bad and is difficult to get off. Colour faded within a week. When colour started to fade, it left a reddish hue on eyebrow hairs (I naturally have very blonde eyebrows). All in all, i would not reccommend this product. I have tried Swiss o'par, and am happy with the results in comparison.

I am really pleased with this product. I have white, white, white blonde eyebrows (and lashes) and always have to fill them in to look human, as well as wearing mascara. I had my brows tinted at a salon once before and was so pleased with the results that I knew I had to get a kit to do myself. I bought this kit at Sally's (in Brown) for around $40 which is about the cost of two salon visits, but there's up to 40 applications in the bottles so this is a great deal. It comes with two bottles of tint (1 and 2, applied separately), a bottle of stain remover in case you get the dye on your skin, shields for lash tinting, and a bunch of toothpicks ("applicators"). This is a lash dye too, but I will not be tinting my lashes with this. I have had them done before with more organic/natural dyes and it hurt like hell when it got in my eyes, so I don't even want to risk it with these chemicals (plus it looks like it would be pretty hard to do yourself.) The instructions were clear and simple, as was the process. I diluted the solution as directed because I am fair skinned with red hair so I do not need a dark brown tint. I think I over-diluted it at first because the results were not that noticeable, so I repeated the process with a slightly less diluted solution. Worked great! I did not need to use the remover. I really like the brown colour - it's quite warm, unlike the last tint I had done, so it suits my red hair very well. I don't know how long the tint will last since I just did it, but even if it lasts a month or a little less, it will be worth it. Filling in my eyebrows is one of the longest steps of my routine so not having to do it is a huge time saver. I can also leave the house with nothing but mascara - ideal for early classes! Having eyebrows has really changed my life in a way.This product lost one lipstick just because I think they could have provided a little bit more in the kit, such as something to mix the solutions in (glass or otherwise, maybe something like a contact lens case) and they could have included cheap plastic eyedroppers or the bottles could have had dropper spouts or built-in droppers, like cuticle oil. It also would've been nice if they provided actual applicators so you didn't have to make your own by wrapping cotton around a toothpick. It would make it a lot more at-home user friendly (though I guess it's meant "for professionals only.") Overall though, this is a good product that does the trick! Great value and great results; easy to use, too!

This will not replace your mascara! It does work, my lashes are indeed darker, but after doing this I realized it makes so little difference that I'd rather just stick with mascara. I applied it at home by myself. I used a concealer brush for #1 and a qtip (for lack of having anything else) for #2. The concealer brush worked well but seemed to hold and apply too much liquid. The qtip worked fine; one of those angled ones would have been better. I got some of each in my eye and it STUNG but goes away.It does what it says but personally I want darker thicker longer lashes; 1 out of 3 isn't enough for me.
