I bought this product thinking this was all I needed, after waiting weeks for it to arrive I discovered that I also needed the activation solution which would take another 4 weeks to arrive. This wasn't stated anywhere when I purchased the product. I bought a kit from my local supermarket that did the same thing and was a lot more accessible. Waste of money
I used it with the cream developer from Refectocil (
RefectoCil 3 Percent Oxidant Crème, 100 ml
). My skin is sensitive so I did the patch test like instructed. The consistency even with the cream developer was kind of runny. They mention using 2cm of products in the instructions, which would have been way too much. I used a pea size of dye and a pea size of developer and it was still too much. I used the provided applicator to mix, but ended up using an angled brush to apply the products (a must in my opinion). It started tingling after 5-6 minutes but nothing too bad, and when the 10 minutes were over I felt some discomfort. I took it off with water and cotton balls. I do advise applying some cream on the eyebrows after as the skin is a little irritated. I have sparse eyebrows so I wasn't expecting too much from this, and the result blew me away. I really wonder why I haven't tried it earlier.
So far I have washed my face twice since tinting my eyebrows and they haven't moved. It feels great to be able to skip the eyebrow filling process in the morning! I expect the dye and developer to last a very long time as very little product is needed.
TLDR: Really good. Some discomfort. Quite dark. Use angled brush to apply. Clean up any mess right away.
I used this colour on my brows. It is super easy to mix and apply. I used about a 1/2 cm with 6 drops of hydrogen peroxide, and it mixed up to the perfect consistency...easy to spread, but not runny. I used the stick applicator that came with it, and it worked just fine. I am fair with dark blonde hair, and this colour was just right and has some range to go just a bit darker to a lot darker. I left it on 7 minutes the first time, and it seemed a bit dark at first...but I got used to it very quickly. Next time I'll likely leave it on for 5 and see how that is.
This product is SO worth the cost! So more fiddling with stupid brow mascara type stuff (and the profanity that inevitably follows...come on, I know I'm not the only one! LOL!) in the mornings. My eyes look so much more emphasized all the time now. Love this stuff and would buy it again in a heartbeat. I suspect the tube will last a very long time. I've gotten comments that I look great, but no one has noticed the subtle change specifically, which is just right. I just look more awake...maybe because my brows take the emphasis away from my under eye circles??? LOL! Hey, whatever works! :)
This is an amazing product. I have only used the Godefroy tint previously and find the powder capsules a pain. This is a gel and is amazingly easy. I used my 3% oxidant I still had from my godefroy stuff. My eyebrows are WAY better with this product and so far after a week they're unchanged. I found with Godefroy they were fading fast. I have super blonde brows, basically invisible. Curious as to whether 3% peroxide works ok or if it would be too runny...I'll try eventually. As for the colour, it's perfect for me, I was worried as it appears light/orange-reddish almost when being mixed. But the colour turned out perfect on my brows. Won't go back to the other product.
I have natually very sparce and light eyebrows, and wouldn't go out unless I have brows drawn on. I find the result of this product even more NATURAL compared to using an eyebrow pencil. When the product is initially dispensed into the mixing container it looked ORANGE which made me so nervous, but after it is oxidized with hydrogen peroxide 3%(yes it's the same stuff as the oxidant by Refectocil but much cheaper) the paste turns into a neutral dark brown. I would recommend this colour to anyone with black or brunette hair, just leave it on for 10-15mins to get the most natural effect. However, I do not suggest tinting your lashes with this AT HOME. It gets into your eyes easily and burns the hell out of them until you wash your eyes with running water. (p.s. this package arrived WAY FASTER (with Prime) than I expected. It's shipped around 00:30 midnight and arrived around 9:00 in the morning, less than 9 hours from Ontario to B.C.!!) Would definitely purchase again if I ever run out of this product.
I'm SO happy to have found an at-home replacement for brow tinting! If you're looking for a lighter brown I would maybe opt for the shade before this one. On light hair, this tint looks chocolate brown (almost black) upon application. I like my brows a bit darker so the #3 Natural Brown works for me. *** Please note *** I did not by the Refectocil developer and instead used a lvl 20% cream developer I had on hand from the last time I dyed my hair so this may have impacted my outcome. I think this will last for quite some time but I will definitely be purchasing again when needed!
I have used lots of different dies over the years, being an Aesthetician I have access to a lot of brands my normal supply store was out so i ordered this and thank my lucky stars its the best colour match. Im very impressed with this product If you want a lighter brown leave it on for just a few minutes darker brown about 7, always mix it with a good developer and let it sit for a few minutes before applying I will def be buying this brand again in the future I was worried at first since it was out of the box but that was just the packaging and probably how it was handled by post but cap wasnt broken so it was fine highly recommend this I even did my bottom lashes as i did my brows, but i dont recommend just anyone doing that unless you are trained, but within a few minutes it brightened my bottom lashes and i got a nice soft brow eyeliner for a few days which is a bonus Best Ive used, best match to date, just love it, now my brows are down and my eyes just pop and saves me that extra time of not filling in my brows, brows and lashes are my go to and now my only routine will be waiting for the glue on my lashes to tack up and im done Came right on time as well 5 stars all around
