I saw this on the Boots website when I was browsing new products, and I was immediately intrigued – I have got most of my outer brow, but the inner part has been victim to the over plucking us ladies were prone to in our younger years.
I literally have just one or two hairs on the inner part, so when I read that this is specifically designed to stick to skin, and is “semi permanent” and only comes off when you use remover, I added to my basket. Actually first I pondered a while over the colour as it doesn’t give you much help in choosing quite honestly.
I often find brunette to be too dark for me – I didn’t want Auburn as it looked too red, but the blonde looked way too light, so I took a chance and went for brunette after all. If you have dark brown hair, I would suggest going for the one in black/brown, as this brunette one is in my opinion a mid brown.
The first problem I had was application – if you use the lip gloss type applicator its great on thick parts of your brow and parts that have hair already, i.e. great for filling in and setting your brows in place, but you can’t be precise with it and create a defined look. Since I have no hairs, I do need to be precise and define, so I took my Louise Young LY37 brush that I usually use with my brow pomades and tried that. Definitely easier but it was very thin and too several applications to build up the colour I needed. I found the best way was to press the colour on rather than stroke it on as I usually would.
Now for longevity, as it claims to say put no matter what. I didn’t find that – I was getting hot & flustered during housework and wiped my forehead, only to realise later that it completely wiped one inner brow off! I found that the stuff adhered very well to the hairs and I actually had to rub quite hard to get that bit off, but the bit on skin came off easier than my Lancome brow cream and my Anastasia brow powder.
Conclusion? If I had thin sparse brows, this might work, but because I have literally none on the inner part, its no good for me and not worth the effort it takes to get a nice brow.
