Product Review: Etude House Tint my Brows

Product Review is baaaaackkk! So let's get down to business, shall we?

According to Etude House their brow tint is...
"New-concept eyebrow gel tint that makes eyebrow makeup last longer after removing the tint." to be one of the semi-permanent make up trend that is becoming popular nowadays and let's face it, we girls want eyebrows on fleek without the high maintenance part right? So, a curious cat will always be just that---curious.

Having the mistake of over plucking my eyebrows when I was in my late college days (now I just shave so as to not damage the follicles and they would still grow back) I am left with barely there brows. So I'm always on the hunt for long wearing brow products, this ain't an exception. :)

Here's how the product looks like:

I got the darkest shade available(only 3 shades are available: light, brown, gray brown)

I like how the bottle indicated the product expiry

The brush looks like this.

Consistency of the product is more like those peel off nose packs that promises to take off blackheads.

Scent is actually okay not bothersome at all in my opinion.

Before putting this on, make sure you trim your brows, groom it a little and no other product is in the way. Clean, oil free brows will ensure the tint gets absorb by the skin better.

Here I am with the product on. I look like an angry bird! Etude House is also aware of this because they launched this tint in Korea with an angry bird collection.

They advised to keep it on minimum of two hours. Yes, HOUR. Impatient people need to stay back! But if you want to make the tint to be more intense and stay on longer, they say to put it on before going to bed and peel it off the next morning. For this review, I left it on for 4 hours.

This is how it looks after peeling.

You must also peel it starting from the tail of your eyebrow to prevent peeling off brow hairs. It is also advisable to put on a thick amount of the product on so it peels off easily rather than putting on a thin layer.

First time I tried this product, I did the overnight thing. I got irked out because the color was more greenish gray! I couldn't see any brown tint! Then, I went and had my morning face wash routine. Lo and behold, the tint turned into brown. It was weird.

This product claims to stay on for 3-7 days. One of the reasons why I got so intrigued by it. But by experience, it only lasted me 2 days. By the second day, the tint was so faint already.

Here it is after the first wash.

In my opinion, this would be okay for those people with eyebrows that only needs filling in, not for those who have thin and barely there brows.

Etude also suggested to not put any kind of product or remover on it atleast 24 hours after application but I find it difficult if you should do the overnight thing because then you'd have to take a bath and wash your face.

It was a nice product for me to play around with but definitely am not repurchasing anytime soon.

Till next time kittens! Hope this review helps! *Wink
