I have a constant dilemma. I dye my hair darker and usually pick up the colour when I see it on special but tend to have to wait to apply it until I can get into the beautician to get my eyebrows tinted as I just look silly with much lighter eyebrows and darker hair.
I finally decided that it was time to buy my own brow tinting kit so I could colour my hair when it needed it, and spend $15 on a packet that will give me 12 applications rather than paying $15 a pop at the salon.
I picked up kit in Dark Brown which looks like this. It states each application lasts up to 6 weeks and is waterproof and smudge proof. To be honest it would be a little silly if it was not waterproof and smudge proof being that it is a dye on your face.
When you open up the kit is looks like this. The packaging is wonderful as it converts into a mixing bowl and applicator.
The instructions are quite long winded, but for eyebrows you mix together a 2.5cm piece of the product in the tube with 10 drops of the developer into the little bowl and mix with the applicator. I had a read of Ms-Jelena's blog who suggested that for eyebrows you only need half this amount. I gave that ago and still had a lot of product left over. Mixing was a little hard but after about a minute I got a smooth consistency. It was very easy to apply with the applicator and I left for the recommended time of 6 minutes and wiped off with a cotton pad quite easily.
Voila, my eyebrows are darker and match my freshly dyed hair and there is no residue on my skin.
The best thing of all, I just ran the little bowl and applicator under cold water and it came up spotless. Perfect for easy storage.
