Hello again lovelies!
If there’s one product I need most it’s something to hold my eyebrows in place. I always seem to have three or four brow hairs that are just sticking out and refuse to be tamed, it’s so frustrating! I was using a Maybelline clear gel to keep them in place for a while but I found it would only hold for a few hours before they’d caterpillar out again. UGH. I was browsing at shoppers and looking at the little NYX section of the wall when I found this Tinted Brow Mascara for $10. We just got Nyx here so I was pretty excited.
I have weird eyebrows. I’m a natural blonde but people always ask me what my natural hair color is. I think its because my eyebrows do not match my hair at all and are actually a darker brown, but who knows. Nyx has an eyebrow shade for blondes but since my eyebrows are darker I figured I’d go a shade down.
I was a little unsure about the shade I chose at first. I swatched the sample on my arm beforehand, but I couldn’t really do up my brows in the store to see how well it matched, especially since there weren’t any mirrors. When I tried it at home it worked out alright though I would have preferred a shade in between the blonde and chocolate pigments. I think I was expecting this to fill in my eyebrows more than it did, but this will be great for easy morning routines when I need to get out the door asap. (aka most mornings for me)!
Easy to use
Long lasting hold
Pigmented for filling as well as shaping
Leaves your eyebrows feeling waxy.
Doesn’t fill as much as expected
Not a lot of color selection.
All in all
This is a very low maintenance product, I’ve been using every day this since I bought it last week and it’s barely added any time to my morning routine. I like that it has a little spoolie wand for shaping, and it’s small too so you can be precise with where the pigment goes.
This lasts pretty much all day. I apply at 4am when I wake up and my eyebrows are still in place by 5pm. For the price I feel like it’s a good deal, but I do wish I could get a shade closer to my natural color (whatever that is). The chocolate brown has some reddish undertones which I’m not exactly sure works with my complexion, but If I only apply one or two coats it doesn’t look unnatural. This product is totally buildable as well, layer more for darker brows, less for lighter. All in all I’m happy with this purchase!
