I honestly never interested when the gel brow tint became such a hype in K-beauty industry a couple of years ago. Though I have to say that it’s always interesting to watch video about people trying the gel tint, lol. Nevertheless, when Liah Yoo mentioned that this is her holy grail brow product, I was intrigued. That is why when it appeared on my local drug store just in time when I replenish several things, I decided to give it a try; only to found out that the one that become Liah Yoo’s HG is the brow mascara one, not this gel tint one, even though they share the same packaging….. *cries a river*
WHAT IT IS
MAYBELLINE Tattoo Brow is a game-changing peel-off gel-tint that leaves brows perfectly defined and evenly filled for up to 3 days.
Enriched with Royal Jelly & Aloe Vera, brows are left tinted and conditioned, gradually and evenly fading over time.
HOW TO USE/APPLY
1. APPLY & DRY
Apply over brows in your desired shape & let dry for at least 20 minutes. For best results, leave on for 2 hours.
2. PEEL & REVEAL
Easily peel off gel-tint starting from the inner corner of the brow towards the outside.
Well, since there is no way that I could return it, etc (Indonesia doesn’t have return policy for beauty products, sadly), a girl gotta make this works. I’ve been experimenting on the best way to apply it in my brows. The applicator is quite nice even though I thought that I couldn’t make such precise application with this brush, it turns out that I could. However, for a verrrry precise application, I still need q-tip to tidy up some angles.
The application is not hard at all, especially if you already watch lots of videos about tinted brow product, lol. One thing to be considered if you want to purchase this product, with this kind of application, you couldn’t achieve fading brows look in front of your brows to look more natural, the result is much more looked like color blocking. But that’s not a big problem since we can touch it up with concealer and brow pencil.
My biggest concern though, that this product didn’t have much staying power in my brows area, seriously! I even applied it overnight, and after I washed my face, the tinted brows were just gone… Weirdly enough, when I apply it on the back of my hand, it didn’t budge for a week even though I already clean it with oil, makeup remover, etc. So… I don’t know, maybe it would work for some people, just not for my brows..?
Well, all in all, if you are curious about gel tinted tattoo brow and want to give it a try, I think this Maybelline Tattoo Brow Gel Tint is worth a shot. Because, it’s relatively affordable, and easy to use. The colour pigment is there too. Even if it didn’t work out for me, maybe it would work out for you in terms of the longevity. Maybe with this product will give you that I woke up like this look? Give me your thoughts in the comment section bellow if this product works just fine on you! 🙂
