Maybelline Tattoo Brow


A peel off brow tint? Can it really be that good? 




So we have all by now I'm sure seen the peel off brow tint by Maybelline. 
I will be honest my first thought took me back 16 years when I decided to get my untrained twin sister Charlene to tint my brows which resulted in my mum using nail varnish remover and a scrubbing motion for a good 5 minutes to try and remove the two slugs I was left with (I do not and never recommend using nail varnish on the face). Obviously now I'm trained I am able to easily tint my brows myself so why would I want to go to a peel off gel; surly it's the same thing? 



Brow Tinting vs Maybelline tattoo brow 


You may be thinking the above is one in the same but they are in fact very different. An eyebrow tint is a chemical process preformed by a beauty therapist where your brow hairs are dyed typically darker (though bleach can be used to lighten) The skin underneath the brows can become slightly tinted which wears off after a day or so but your brow hair remains tinted until the hair cycle replaces them with your natural colour brow hairs. As this treatment is a chemical process a patch test needs to be preformed to establish if you have any sensitivity to the product and to avoid any nasty reactions. 
The Maybelline tattoo brow is very different; your natural hairs will remain the same colour after using this product but works on staining the skin under your brows for up to 3 days so you can finally ditch the brow pencils/pomades.  





Tattoo Brow 

So how easy is the tattoo brow to use? the advert looks simple enough, paint on and peel off.
I have tested and have some tips for you. 

  • Clean your brows free from any make-up for an even finish
  • Paint the gel directly over your brows, you need a relatively thick layer to allow for easy peeling
  • Have a wipe handy; as this product stains the skin you need to work neatly as where ever the gel hits a nice stain will be there for the 3 days.
  • Leave for at least 20 minutes. On my second use I got a bit impatient and found only parts peeled off and I was in a sticky mess. Leave on for up to 2 hours for a 3 day wear. 
  • Don't fake tan on the same day as first using this product. As the product stains your skin applying fake tan over the area will cause the tint colour to show up more orange in appearance, this is the same for brow tinting, trust me I'm speaking from experience! 
  • Avoid using harsh products or over wiping the brow area to avoid fading the tint too soon

Results 


Well I have to say I truly believe this is a brow revelation. I was expecting this product to leave a harsh tint effect but supprisingly the effect is not only even but also soft in apperance on the skin. I used the medium brown but also avaliable is medium blonde and dark brown.
