If I will be asked to have only 1 make up product for the rest of my life, in a heartbeat my answer would be an EYEBROW product. Being born with not so thick brows, I usually depend on my eyebrows being well made for my face to be, you know – well framed. I can go on without foundation, powder, blush nor lipstick; as long as I have my Kilay on fleek, I’m good to go. 😋
That being said, most of the time when we go for a swim I don’t put anything on my eyebrows ’cause it will just be erased anyway, which leaves my eyebrows to be not-so-photo-worthy. Bummer. 😔😅
So just before our trip to Cebu a few weeks ago, I decided to try on this product released by Maybelline – Eyebrow Tattoo Gel Tint.
Tattoo Brow Gel Tint in Light Brown (Php 599: BeautyMNL). This shade is the lightest, should have gotten the medium tho.
The formula is like the other tattoo tints in the market. Liquid and sticky but the application is easy.
Claim to fame – it will give you natural looking tinted brows in 3 days- water proof & smudge proof!
Given that I’ll be doing a lot of out door activities -swimming, canyoneering, hiking & the likes, I didn’t plan to put on make up the whole trip, so I gave this product a try.
this is how my brows look like without any product on it.
How to use:
Step 1: I use my eyebrow pencil to out line my eyebrows as I usually do. Then use the applicator to apply an even layer of brow gel tint over your brows. Follow your natural shape. Quickly correct any mistakes with a cotton bud.
Step 2: Let the gel set for 20 minutes ( for 1 day tint ) to 2 hours (for 3 days tint).
Step 3: Once dry, peel off the formula. Start from the inner corners of the brow to the tails.
Few more minutes before peeling off. Left it for 2 hours since I plan to test it til Day3!🤗 I always envy how thick his brows are 😛 Ta-da! this is how it looks like once peeled, a bonus that it didn’t hurt even a bit. How it looked like after peeling the gel. That night I washed my face with my usual facial wash before going
Day 1 : Did my usual morning routine – washed face with facial wash, toner, this is my bare face BTW, I only used moisturizer and sunblock on. This photo was taken after several stops already, weather was humid so sweat & oil was already wiped out from the brow zone that time. Did my usual skin care at night – facial wash, toner, moisturizer. Day 2: Morning routine. Swam with the whale sharks, visited Tumalog waterfalls and hiked. This photo was taken at the starting point of Osmena Peak. Did my nightly skin care.
Day 3: Morning routine. Island hopping. Canyoneering then my usual nightly skin care.
Honestly speaking, I’m happy with how the product performed. It delivered as it promised, provided that I had alot of water activities in that trip and that I very often wash my face. The tint faded day after day as expected. I should have gotten the medium one, the color pay off would have been bolder, but nonetheless, I’m happy with it!
My tip would be to avoid using oil based make remover, or avoid the brow area atleast.
I recommend this gel tint specially if you’ll be hitting the pool or the beach. It’s perfect for a no make up day. 😛
Catch you later! ❤
