A Temporary Brow Tattoo♥*

Trying out new brow products can be a little daunting because they aren't always guaranteed to work for everyone, and working them out can be quite the mission. Typically, I use brow kits or a pomade due to the effectiveness of them and their simplicity. The wonderful people from Maybelline emailed me about trying their Brow Tattoo*, and I was intrigued as to whether it truly worked as a tattoo or not. I opted for their darkest shade, Dark Brown but they also do a Medium Brown and a Light Brown.

In my opinion, the packaging is pretty slick. I like the shiny black packaging with the girly touch of bling. It doesn't appear cheap yet isn't overly fancy too. It is purchased in a box, which contains all of the details of the product on the side (you know, the how to, step-by-step instructions and all that jazz) which obviously wouldn't fit onto the actual product itself. Minimalism is my style, so this packaging is aesthetically pleasing and I like it.

I must admit, the applicator/wand was not what I was expecting. I did expect more of a distinct brush, so I was curious to see how I would get on with the applicator because I was afraid incase it would be tricky and hard to work with. It turns out that it's actually the easiest thing ever. All you do is literally PAINT the shape of your eyebrows. No gimmick. How simple is that? It only takes a few minutes, and of course, the more precise you are, the longer, but I cannot believe how easy it is to apply. It's not messy whatsoever - I thought that it would smudge everywhere, but I was wrong. When applied onto your brows, it appears as a black liquid, which slowly dries, but it looks so funny not going to lie!

Depending on how long you want it to last on your brows, the times vary. If you only want it to be temporary for a day, they recommend 20 minutes. I tend to leave it closer to 30 minutes. Normally, I do it on a Sunday evening at around 7:00, and when I get up on Monday morning, my brows don't need any extra product because this product works so well - of course if you want extra definition, ie at the arch, you may want to use some pomade etc. If you wish for it to last for up to 3 days, they recommend 2 hours, however, I haven't done this - mainly because I'm afraid to if I'm honest aha! After you've left it on for your chosen time, you then have the joys of removing it - well, PEELING it. You basically need to remove the product from the inner part of your brow to the outer. This is a bit of a pain, but it is quite satisfying, and worth it!

Here's a quick before preview of my brows with no product whatsoever in them. Although they are pretty full, they aren't defined at all, and they do have a few sparse areas which I like to fix up with my brow products.

Here's an afterwards preview of my brows. As you can see, they are visibly darker and there aren't as many sparse areas. 

Overall, I think it's a product worth investing in. It certainly isn't a gimmick and I just love the finished results. It's so simple to do and saves you a few pennies by doing it at home!

Have you tried this product? What was your experience like?

  1. Ah this product looks really interesting and I'm pleased it worked out well! Knowing me, and how clumsy I tend to be, I would 100% mess it up and end up with a wild section of brow all day. After seeing your before and afters I might have to pick one up and give it a try for myself!
