Colorsport Eye Lash & Brow Tint Review

Hey Ladies

Unlike some of you lucky ladies I was born with blonde hair, yes people spend loads of money getting their hair blonde but I have the problem of spending money getting my blonde hair darker specifically my eyebrows & lashes.

I have spend most of my adult live going to salons & getting them tinted, not only is it costly at about £15 a time it's the time factor which I don't have to get them done these days, and so when I saw Pixiwoo's video on eyebrow tinting I decided to give it a go, so I thought i'd report to you how it went.

I actually got the dark brown version as I was only going to tint my brows, It comes with a tube of colour, some developing liquid, a built in mixing bowl & a mixer/applicator.

First of all I didn't do a patch test (naughty me!) but i've had my lashes & brows tinted loads & never had a reaction so didn't bother (plus i'm too impatient to purchase something & then have to wait 48 hours to use it!!)

Mixing is easy but I don't enjoy the lack of detailed instructions saying up to 10 drops of the liquid is no good as i got a massive drop which was too much! I prevailed until I had the mix the consistency as they recommend, I applied it to my brows with with a spooley (mascara wand)  (the applicator they give you is shit, don't even bother) & then left it whilst keeping a close eye on them, after about 2 minutes I wimped out & took it off thinking they'd be black. They weren't just a very nice shade of mid brown. Overall I'm thrilled with the brows and the good thing about this kit is at £6.50 it's supposed to last you a year!

So I let my curiosity get the better of me & applied it to my lashes & it did tint them just not dark enough for my liking so I will purchase the black kit & try it out!

I will give you a pic of what they look like now but I was too impatient to take a before pic, trust me they were practically see through.

I obviously have mascara on my top lashes but nothing on my brows!
Overall I think it's a great kit if you adapt it by using your own applicator & it will save me a fortune in salon bills by doing it at home! I really recommend it but don't be silly like me & do a patch test just in case.

Thanks for reading & hope you're all doing well!

  7. I have dark hair and dark brows/lashes (be a bit odd for an Indian person to have naturally blonde hair...) and when I dye my lashes with it, I find I don't need to wear mascara..it's a great time saver.
