NYX Tinted Brow Macara

If there’s one product I need most it’s something to hold my eyebrows in place. I always have three or four brow hairs sticking out that 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.

I have weird eyebrows. I’m a natural blonde but people always ask me what my natural hair colour is. I think its because my eyebrows don’t match my hair at all and are 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.

First Impressions

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 although I would have preferred a shade in between blonde and chocolate. I think I was expecting this to fill in my eyebrows more than it did, but it will be great for easy morning routines when I need to get out the door asap. (aka most mornings for me)!

Pros
Easy to use
Long lasting hold
Pigmented for filling as well as shaping
Buildable

Cons
Eyebrows feel waxy.
Doesn’t fill as much as expected
Not a lot of colour selection.

Overall

This is a low maintenance product, I’ve been using it every day this since purchasing 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 so you can be precise with where the pigment goes.
