I bought this Lash/Brow tinting kit at Sally's Beauty Supply. The salon here charges $21 for an eyelash tint. Well just this kit alone has 40 applications. A steal right?
Well, lets take a look at the all around product on a scale from 1-5:
You can choose black or brown. Stay away from brown unless you're tinting your brows. You want BLACK for your lashes!
It was very easy to apply the product and follow instructions. But I gave it a 3 for simplicity because these darn under eye papers were a PAIN! It says to "trim under eye papers for unusual or odd shaped eyes." Well I obviously have both because I had to trim the corners and the bottoms so that it fit better and wouldn't make me flutter my lashes out of uncomfortableness and annoyance.
I'm over it though...now.
I would also suggest only doing one eye at a time. I tried two and failed (the papers were the most of it) but I started over and just did one eye at a time. It takes about 10 minutes if you do it 1 at a time.
I can now see my lashes. But it's still not a big result for me and only lasts for about a month. It's back to mascara...for now. I dont think it would be worth doing it yourself OR getting it done at a salon. But that's just me. I can see myself using this before I go camping or swimming. But that's about it.
What I came away with: I just used cotton swabs instead of what they provided. The product is clear (at first) so dont over apply and let it drip in your eye. Trim the under-eye papers to fit comfortably. Do one eye at a time (it will still only take you 10 minutes). It lasts for about a month. It looks fine for day wear, but simply expect me to apply mascara for a date night with my hubby. I'm going to try Loreal's lash strengthener/grower stuff and then try tinting again.
There's still eyelash extensions and wispies. I'll keep you posted.
