Maybelline Eyebrow Tint- Testing the Eyebrow Tattoo

Maybelline have recently brought out a new way to fill in your eyebrows which has the potential to change the face of the eyebrow world! It’s a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo that lasts up to 3 days. Sounds like a dream come true for every brow lover, not only does it save money it also means you don’t need to go to the salon. You can do it yourself in the comfort of your own home. Let’s find out if the Maybelline eyebrow tint can live up to its expectations! Is it a must have or a waste of money?

How Does the Maybelline Eyebrow Tint work?

Testing the Eyebrow Tattoo

The eyebrow tattoo is really simple to use. You need to clean your brows and then apply the gel with the easy to use applicator that it comes with. Apply it directly on top of your eyebrow hairs and let it sit for minimum 20 mins up to 2 hours for a heavier tint. If you make any mistakes on the way, don’t panic, quickly using an ear bud wipe away the mistake before the tint sets properly. Once the gel has dried, you simply peel it off and voila- you have tinted brows! Now for the real question- does it work??

Testing the Eyebrow Tattoo

I have brown, very sparse eyebrows and I am always looking for new ways to improve how they look. I was very excited to try out the eyebrow tint. After following the instructions, I let the gel sit for 20 minutes. So far, so good. However, then I tried to peel off the gel and that is when the trouble started. It didn’t peel off nicely at all, it came off in dribs and drabs and it managed to pull out a few of my much needed hairs. You can imagine when one has sparse eyebrows every single hair is precious. My eyebrows at the best of times have holes from missing hairs, so I was rather disappointed to say the least. I resorted to my trusted cotton wool pad and water to remove the rest which then came off nicely.

As for the tint, it actually did work. My eyebrows did look darker. While its great that it worked, I don’t think it was worth loosing a few hairs in the process. If you have fuller brows, and you don’t mind loosing some hairs from the gel then I recommend the eyebrow tint for you because overall, it does what it says. I have to give it to Maybelline, the idea of a self-tinting eyebrow kit is brilliant, however, I personally will not be using it again.

    Thanks for the honest review! Often beauty bloggers just write content that will sell for them so its nice to come across an honest blogger:) I’m debating whether this eyebrow tint is worth the risk for me….I guess I can always try it out once.

    I love your site and I’m looking forward to your future posts! 

    1. Thanks for stopping by:)

      I try to be as honest as I can, after all people are after the truth! 

      If you’re not worried about the tint pulling out your hair its definitely worth trying out once! 

      Good luck and let me know how it goes!

    The Maybelline Eyebrow tint sounds absolutely genius! So I was disappointed that it didn’t work that well for you. Nooo! I had such high hopes when I started reading. I don’t know that I have enough eyebrow hairs to spare either. 

    Hopefully enough people will talk about how hard it is to get off and Maybelline will figure out a way to perfect this thing. I would love to be able to “tattoo” my eyebrows so I don’t have to mess with them for a few days. Crossing my fingers…!

    1. Yes, that would be nice if Maybelline could perfect it a bit more because it’s sooo close xx

  3. I am obsessed with eyebrows, I like them thick. I am going to blame it on Cara Delevingne lol. I heard about it but never used it before. I am so sorry you lost a few hair, these people why do they market it like that?! I am glad I came across your review so I know What I get myself into. I don’t think I am even going to try it, I bought serums to theicken my brows and the last thing I want is to lose it on the over the counter make up. Will share this to all my girls, they need to know!!

    1. Cara Delevingne changed the face of eyebrows today and made us all fall in love with it. I also love mine thick, it adds so much to the face!

  4. Thank you for the honest review. My daughters have used a brow palette that contains two brow powders, a matte highlighter, a shimmer highlighter, and setting wax. As you mentioned, a big part of the decision of what to use depends on what your eyebrows are like to begin with. I think it’s good that Maybelline created this product for those who can most benefit from it.

    1. Thanks for stopping by:)
