How To: Tinting Eyebrows with RefectoCil Eyelash & Eyebrow Tint

It took me a lot of time, but I finally did it. I tinted my eyebrows. =) I think brows are very important when it comes to the look of the whole face and when you do them right, they can make all the difference. I do my brows every morning: first I comb them with clean mascara brush, fill them in with an eyeshadow and fix them with gel mascara. I wanted to see if I can darken them so I wouldn't have to fill them in every morning. That's why I bought RefectoCil Eyelash and Eyebrow Tint and RefectoCil Oxidant 3% Developer Cream.

Since I dye my hair dark brown I chose RefectoCil in Natural Brown (shade #3). You can choose between 9 shades and a bleaching paste. Here's what you get: 15 mL of color, a plastic stick (for mixing/application) and instructions.

This is what you'll need for tinting your eyebrows.

How I tinted my eyebrows with RefectoCil Eyelash and Eyebrow Tint:
* I dipped a cotton swab into skin care oil and applied it around my brows. The oil prevents the paste from tinting your skin. 
* I mixed 1 cm of tint and approximately 10 drops of developer cream in a glass jar into a creamy paste (using the plastic stick that came with the tint). 
* I started with the application of the paste immediately. I used art brush as an applicator and tried to be as precise as possible at this step. I left the paste on my brows for 10 minutes.

* After 10 minutes, I took a dry cotton pad and removed the paste off my brows with one swipe. Then I took another cotton pad (this time it was a wet one) and rubbed my brows - to remove any excess of the paste. And that's that! 

Here's the before and after the tinting with RefectoCil.

I really like the look of my brows after the tinting. They're darker without looking unnatural. I still have to fill them in, but not so much as I had to before. The instructions say the effect will last from 3-4 weeks and fade gradually. I approve! 

I purchased RefectoCil Eyelash and Eyebrow Tint for €8.49 and RefectoCil Oxidant Cream Developer for €9.29. I purchased both in a local drug store. 

Have you ever tried tinting your eyebrows or eyelashes? Are you planning to?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  1. I've wanted to tint my eyelashes for so long but I've never had the courage to do it because I think it's scary because it's so close to your eye.. Great review!

  2. Hi. It really look good! I tried tinting my eyelashes or should I say my mum did my eyelashes. I was very happy with the effects. Lots of girls started to do this at home. Sorry for my terrible English. It is not my first language.

  4. Moje obrvi so precej nedefinirane barve, tako da me občasno zamika barvanje v kaj bolj znosnega tudi potem za oblikovanje in dopolnjevanje s svinčniki. Vendar ne vem, kako bi izpadlo na mojo barvo las. Je pa zelo fin rezultat, ne pretiran, zelo naraven, a opazen. Fino!

  5. Super izgledajo po barvanju! Všeč mi je, da se ohrani naraven videz obrvi.

    Jaz imam prav črne obrvi in jih nikoli nisem barvala, sem jih pa nekajkrat pobelila, kar izapade še dobro, dokler postopka ne ponovim in nekatere dlačice potem dobijo oranžkast pridih. Ups. Tako da jih zdaj puščam v naravni barvi.

  6. Love this! They look so gorgeous.

    When I lived in the US I used Just For Men dye quite often! It worked wonderfully.

  7. Couldn't you do the same with hair dye? My eyebrows are naturally dark and full, so I know very little about eyebrow grooming, but I've heard some ladies colour them with regular hair dye.

  8. Since your brows were quite colorful before, the difference is not sooo big. But nevertheless, it looks good!
    My brows are really light-colored but I never thought about eyebrow tint. Perhaps I should at least try this out :)

  9. I go to my beautician every 4 weeks, she does my lashes and brows. I'm a middle blond, with light brows and lashes, which leaves me with a kind of boring expression. Also, I'm very lazy when it comes to applying make up before going to work, I don't wear any. I've tried it at home, but that was not such a great idea: my skin was darker than my brows. Also, colouring your lashes is not really healthy for your eyes (getting peroxide in your eye is very easy to achieve), so i don't want to take too many risks by doing it myself.
