Guys, I've found a Pretty Looks dupe for less than P600! 😮 You know the ads you see on Facebook where they show perfectly tattooed brows? I've had mine done before and it was an expensive beauty investment that I'm still happy about. But I've found one that works as nicely, without the long-term commitment. Curious?
It's the Etude House Tint My Brows Gel! This one's actually my super early Christmas gift for my sister because she asked for it. So the swatches you'll see later are her brows, not mine.
Etude House Tint My Brows Gel in #3 Gray Brown
There are 3 shades, and the first two (Brown and Light Brown) were more on the brownish side which turns yellow in time. My hair is pure black, but as I was purchasing, the SA pushed me to get the Brown shade, which I declined. 😛 My sister has dark brown hair, she she wouldn't want to be sporting yellowish brows, so Gray Brown was the safest bet.
New concept eyebrow gel tint that makes eyebrow makeup last long after removing the tint.
The packaging was really simple. There was no hint of cuteness, but it's alright because it serves its purpose. The expiry date is printed on the tube, and based on the box this product is good for 12 months after first use. I think otherwise, because the testers were already goopy. I think this will be usable for about 3 to 6 months. The applicator is a simple brush and it applies the product nicely.
With this product, you have to have brows that are already shaped well. For beginners, I'd still recommend using a brow pencil or powder since this kind of tint might be complicated. This one's for those who are used to doing their brows but are tired of drawing them everyday. 😁 This product smells surprisingly good, despite its gooey black look.
What you have to do is to clean your face first so the tint has a smooth surface (free from oil and dust) to adhere to. Be generous when applying the tint, since it dries up and would be easier to pull out if it's a thick layer. Dry it for at least 2 hours, or even overnight if sigurista ka. If you make a mistake, make sure to wipe it away before it sets on your skin.
After it dries, remove it starting from your inner brows. Do not remove it forcibly since it may pull out the eyebrow.
TENEN! Not bad for a first-timer. My sister is a fan of Korean brows, hence the low arch.
The finished product uncannily looks like my tattooed brows right now. Do not use facial wash on your brows within 24 hours from using this product, or else it will sting. She used this product in the evening, and when she washed her face in the morning, she forgot about the facial wash tip, and a bit of her brow's tail got erased, but no biggie. She just reapplied a bit of the product on her brows for less than an hour, and everything was good. (Her brows looked more natural after washing her face.) I think this tint will last her 2 to 3 days. Sarap gumising ng may kilay. Haha 😊 So far, she's happy and I'm amazed.
