Taken from Maybelline Australia- "Get brows that wow with Maybelline's Brow Tattoo. Draw it, tint it, peel it, that's it!"
The brow gel is packaged in a small 5 ml tube. It has a screw top lid with brush tipped wand for application.
The scent of this product reminds me of a typical mascara smell. A little chemical, but not at all overpowering, I actually only noticed it when I consciously gave the tube a sniff.
It has a thick gel consistency.
I found the fine brush a great size for applying the product. I simply brushed it on following the shape of my brow. I took my time, but did not feel the need to be slow to be precise as I found the consistency to be perfect. There was no need to worry about product caking on the brows or being too runny to stay in place.
I was looking forward to using this brow product, because as you can see from the photo, I have somewhat unruly brows that are sparse in some areas.
I have the shade Medium Brown which applies almost black. A little bit scary, lol. I left the product on for around an hour before peeling off. Being on the heavy handed side is a good thing, because it peels off much easier. Too light of an application and it just doesn't dry in one piece.
I must say that I was surprised at how much lighter the result was compared to the initial application. I was relieved, however, I was not excited about the warm tone. It looked ok, but I would much prefer a cool toned brow. This was my fault, because I chose the shade.
Day 2 and there was some fading and the warmth was more apparent. I didn't feel the need to apply my regular brow pencil, though.
By day 4 there were only patches of the tint left. It was an orange colour that had appeared to have smudged, which I would imagine had happened during my skincare routine.
Verdict? I have a love hate relationship with the Maybelline Brow Tint Gel. It indeed does help to fill in the brows and does last for a few days. However, I have to be conscious of my brows when using skincare products, because if I'm not careful I will likely cleanse the tint away.
As I mentioned, the tint does last on me for 3-4 days, but it fades considerably on me each day. Another con could be the time that the gel needs to be on the brows, at least for me, around an hour which is a long time if you're rushed for time. However, this gel can be applied the night before then peeled off the next day.
It's an interesting product that I've enjoyed playing with, but if I'm honest, I'm not sure it's a must have for me.
