New to the Maybelline cosmetics market it their tattoo studio waterproof brow gel. They also released a brow tattoo tint, which I had no luck finding in Canadian stores. The improved quality and wear of these product types are leaving me astounded year after year. This brow gel has the staying power of two days and the pigmentation does truly improve the colouring of your brows. Vacationers REJOICE no more having to apply brow products every single morning, or worrying about your brows dripping off when swimming. This proved to me to be a wonder product that I now could not imagine vacationing without.
The brow gel is available in four shades
The dome applicator made the middle part of the brow easy to fill and follow the guide of your own brow, the head and tail was a different story. My personal opinion is the dome needs to be a bit small to control the details at the head of the brow and a narrow tail. Though not impossible to do, it did require alot of focus and a steady hand to master the fill in these areas. Once applied I instantly saw an improvement of colour and shape of my brow. I waited about 3-4 minutes for the gel to set before brushing my finger back and forth. This proved to have no transfer on my finger or above and under my brows, everything stayed in place. Next was the cotton pad test which did reveal a slight bit of transfer, my best advice is wait about 10-15 minutes for it to fully set.
Later that night I did my nightly skincare routine including washing my face for a water test. My brows looked freshly done after patting my face dry with a towel. Now I was half expecting to see brown colour running off my brows down my face, but there was nothing. The next morning I breezed threw my makeup not needing to re touch my brows. They lasted all day and only faded a bit when I proceeded to remove my makeup that night. The gel lasts the two days they advertised but no longer.
Maybelline now has myself as a committed buyer of this brow gel, as well as holding my interest in the brow tint if it ever releases in Canadian stores. You can watch below my Youtube first impressions to see this product in action.
