Maybelline Tattoo Brow. Does It Really Work?

Maybelline Tattoo Brow

 

Maybelline has recently brought out this new ‘Easy peel off tint’ called Brow Tattoo. I immediately thought, what an amazing idea! Available in 3 shades in the UK, light brown, medium brown and dark brown. I believe it is available in an extra shade called grey-brown, but not here in the UK. I searched everywhere for dark brown but I could only get my hands on medium brown, so that’s what I rolled with.  Now if you’re someone like me who has dark hair, well black hair but about 10 brow hairs, you probably need a little help in the brow department. Listen, I wouldn’t leave the house without my brow done unless I’d freshly tinted them; I look expressionless without brows, not to mention, kind of odd.

I was keen to try this product, but after seeing another girl on Youtube try the medium brown and her brows turn red, I started to worry, thinking that I’d need the dark brown. But I decided to try it, it fades in 3 days so it will be fine.

The Application

The packaging reminds me of lash glue, and the formula isn’t too dissimilar, But it’s easy enough to apply. I put a small amount of the product with the applicator in the middle of my brow then used an angled brush to disperse the product and shape my brown like I would if I was applying something like a pomade, you can always build up the product. I used a tiny amount at the front of my brow as I prefer an ombre effect brow, rather than a harsh block brow. After about 20 minutes you peel off the dried PVA-like glue (remember from school) starting from the inner brow and it comes off so easily; Kind of satisfying too.

My brows were brown, with a slight red undertone which wasn’t terrible, but I definitely need to try the dark brown. I decided to do the application again to see if I would get them even darker, they did go slightly darker, but nothing too obvious.

Would I repurchase this product? Hell yes!!! (but in the correct shade, because I was just too eager to try it) I will still do my brows when I go out, but when I have no makeup days, I will feel a whole lot better and confident seeing my reflection with brows on my face.  It makes a HUGE difference. I’ve often considered microblading, but if this is the next best thing, then I’ll take it.  It’s so much quicker and less messy than a tinting kit.

BEFORE
DURING
AFTER

This is a brilliant product for those of us who have light, sparse or no brows. You can chuck in your makeup bag and do your brows just before you go out. They may need to add in some more shades which would be good, but for now, Maybelline, you’ve done well!

I found mine at Superdrug, but it’s also available at Boots. I’ve put a link for you if you want to go try it for yourself.
