REVIEW on ETUDE HOUSE Tint My Brows Gel.
An intense product that will replace
all the existing tinted eyebrows came out.
Its name is Brow Gel Tint.
I was wondering how would a gel tint be like at first.
But it seemed hurtful when I read the manual.
I’m going to try it anyway.
Brown, Light Brown, and Grey Brown.
Seems similar with brow mascara.
Sticky gel tint comes out with the brush.
It stretches like spider web.
Got annoyed at first.
Tried anyway to see how it will be like.
There was a trace of gel tint even before I opened the case.
Is it a tester? Feels uncomfortable..

According to ETUDE HOUSE,
need to apply thickly and wait for more than 2 hours.
More than 8 hours for better effect.
I applied thinly on back of hand and let it dry.
Need to peel off like a wrapping tint.
Residue… Maybe it is not completely dry.
After taking off the residue.
Brown will look good with natural brown hair.
Light Brown will match well with light brown hair.
Grey Brown has more of grey than brown in it.
It will look fine with black hair.
It’s time to apply them on brows.
Put a lot of efforts in it.
It was hard to make edge of the brow stand out.
I usually get lots of compliments when drqwing brows.
But gel tint was little hard to use.
It will be hard for beginners, too.
For dramatic effect, I dried it while I was sleeping.
Removed gel tint in the next morning.
Gel tint on edge of the brow didn’t come out at once.
Maybe that’s why ETUDE suggests users to start removing from edge.
But I will never do that.
Brow somehow will be extracted…
Scraped out all the gel tints.
Did good job on the edge.
It seems like lots of people are doing semi-permanent brow tattoo
as they are annoyed to draw brows everyday.
However, in my opinion, rather than fixing brows by hurting skin,
using a gel tint is way better.
Unlike a number of existing tinted eyebrows,
it leaves color on skin very well and lasts long.
When doing makeup in the morning, you will just need to
apply brow mascara on pre-existing brows.
It will save your time of makeup.
However, if you want clearer coloring, you need to apply gel tint thickly.
When applying thickly, gel tint applied earlier might dry first and
put you in awkward position.
There are some faults.
When removing, although I removed it according to brow texture to prevent
it from being extracted, 2~3 brows were extracted.
As my skin is little bit sensitive, it just got red.
But if you have really sensitive skin, there will be too much stimulus on your skin.
It feels like detaching a viscous tape from skin.
So it hurts a little.
Gel tint that stretches like a spider web due to amazing viscosity,
writing brush type(not diagonal brush) which is hard to draw eyebrow with.
Few feature are disappointing.
If you have normal or dry skin type,
you can sleep over night with gel tint on
and expect adequate coloring over time.
On the other hand, if you have oily skin,
it falls off often and color will not be that clear.
However, if you apply gel tint after you thoroughly deal with oily touch,
you can also expect fine coloring 🙂
In general, innovative.
Highly functional and satisfying.
But as it’s a new type of product, there are few things to be improved.
I’ll give it 4 stars.
