If you are a blonde, your life is about to change. Mine sure did when I discovered this stuff. I've been addicted to this stuff for ages now, so I thought it was about time to share it.
Brows and lashes have been something I've struggled with for as long as I can remember. Both my sister and I were blessed with naturally blonde hair (our hair was almost white growing up) but over the years, it has slowly started to darken. For the most part, I only have my hair highlighted about twice a year, just to brighten it up. But for whatever reason, both my eyebrows and my eye lashes have always been VERY light in colour. In fact, my eye lashes are almost transparent without anything on them. I've always hated it because I feel like I look SO different without a stitch of make up on. At least brunettes wake up with some brows and lashes on - even if they aren't perfectly defined, it's something!
So, as you can imagine I was so excited when I discovered this product when we were living in London. I bought it for next to nothing in Boots, along with the pro-lash product. But I know you can also buy it online (You can get it here on Amazon). (Side note : I do also love to lash dye product but because my lashes are also very fine, I don't find it really does anything great for me).
I know you can obviously just go to a salon and have your brows tinted, micro bladed or tattooed on, but honestly I'm not interested in the price tag of a salon tinting my brows or the pain associated with the other options. What is easier than an at-home, inexpensive solution!? I absolutely love the effect I get with this product, plus it takes me about 5 minutes to do. It last about 6 weeks before I feel like I need a touch up, so it's a no brainer for me. I've been using the same box for months and months, so I would say each application has cost me less than about .50 cents.
I will say that if you are SUPER picky about the colour of your brows, you might not be as in love with the product as much as I am. But it is just like hair dye in the fact that you can let it sit as long as you like or a little as you like to achieve the darkness you like. So there is some wiggle room in terms of the colour. On me, the colour has never looked red or warmed toned, which I love.
All in all, the product has very quickly become a must have, holy grail item. I really can't live without it anymore! It has made getting ready in the morning such a dream! Not to mention that I don't feel like an alien when I wake up in the morning, haha. It would also be great for camping weekends, a day at the pool or anytime you want a waterproof brow! I just feel like you can't go wrong!
Below is a photo that was taken close to the 5 or 6 week mark, when I was about ready for a touch up.
And here is a photo that was taken the day I tinted my brows at home. Ken is always a little weirded out the day I tint my brow because they are a little bit Hilga. But not to worry, they fade to the perfect shade within a few days. I just don't fill them at all for the few 2-3 days. After that I just fill as needed and become more heavy handed with the filling as the weeks pass.
I hope you enjoyed this quick product love post! I would have loved to have known about this stuff years ago. Ah, the mornings of looking crazy it would have saved me, haha
