Back in the early days of wearing makeup, my eyebrows were the least of my concerns, for me it was all about the eyeliner and foundation covered lips *sinks into chair with embarrassment*.
But nowadays i would consider my brows to be not only my favourite thing to do in my makeup routine but they truly make a difference to how i feel when i have done them.

On a everyday basis, i would love something that i can just run through them and they look done. This is where the Revolution Brow Tint comes in. I noticed that Maybelline have brought one out too but it's over double the price, of this one as it just comes in at £5.00!


The tube comes in a very sleek box, with instructions on the back running through 3 steps to follow. 

STEP 1: Start with a clean brow

STEP 2: Apply to brow to create desired shape. Leave to develop for up to 2 hours.

STEP 3: Peel off for gorgeous brows for up to 3 days. 

Revolution offer 3 shades, Dark Brown which is what i have gone for, Medium Brown & Taupe.

The colour swatched well on my hand looking like a deep chocolate brown. The consistency wasn't like a sticky gloop, but can only be described as a silky gloop? It looked like it would apply well on the brow, without being to thick and messy.

The right hand swatch was what was tinted onto my hand only after a few minutes and washed off after i would say 3 hand washes. So, i was having high hopes for this little product at this point. 

I decided to use my small angled eyebrow brush from Real Techniques to initially get the shape i wanted. I wanted to extend the tail and build up the front of the brow and to create more of an arch.

After making sure my brows were brushed out & squeaky clean, i then started to apply the product. My first impression, was that the colour seemed to match well & it applied pigmented. I then noticed that due to my choice of brush, it was fairly tricky to create a sharp edge for my tail. Then when running the tint through the whole brow and coming back to the tail, due to it being a thin layer, it then started to crumble where my brush was picking up from the layer first applied, which made readjusting the shape harder. 

I also found the product wasn't applying well to my skin underneath my brow hairs, where i wanted a fuller look to get my arch and more of a blocked look at the front of my eyebrow. I found i had to push through the hairs to apply the product which was meaning i wasn't getting a clean sweep of product, which arose concerns as to how it was going to peel. 

After applying my first layer, i decided to take the applicator from the brow tint & try to run a thick layer over the brow to then make it easier to peel later. I found that due to the thickness of the brush from the bottle, it would easily run over the shape i had created meaning i was taking my brow thicker and thicker... i would imagine this wouldn't be too much trouble in future when you have had more practice with it. 

Allowing that layer to dry, I then applied a thin third layer to make sure every gap that was still visible due to it not grabbing to the skin easily before. 

Set my timer for the full 2 hours to let it develop and got on with some housework to pass the time (& to warm up, it was chilly this day!)

You could do less time if your just wanting to see how it will go for your first time & maybe you don't want a strong change to the shape or fullness of your brow. If this is the case, you could maybe try an hour or 30 minutes even. I may try this if i'm pushed for time.

My timer beeped and now was the moment of truth, the satisfying peel off. 

As i imagined, it didn't come off all in one. I started to peel from the tail where half way through the brow it broke. Working further towards the front, it started to get a little tricky to peel. 
Bits of dried tint still in my brow hairs and skin underneath, almost looking a little crumbly. Not wanting to get my nails dirty (diva), I opted to use a baby wipes to gently buff away the remaining product. This worked really well although it did take off some tint, which i believe was just excess, it still left my brows with a slight tint and shape that i had created. 

Although looking like a dark chocolate brown when first applied and swatched, the end colour result did have a more black tone, which doesn't fuss me too too much, but something to consider if your toying between the medium and dark shade. For the natural lighting moments, next time i'm opting for the medium, which i would imagine as a more red undertone making it a tad lighter.

If your unsure of what shade to choose from and not wanting to waste your money, you could opt for less time for the product to develop. This would mean the pigment of the tint would be less obvious and would blend in more with your natural hairs of your brow.

I was quite chuffed with the end result. As this was my first time, it took me around 15 minutes to achieve my brow shape and to apply additional coats of tint. I don't know wether the extra tint made a difference to be honest as the peel still didn't come off that easily, but next time i'm going to try with the applicator it comes with to see if it's quicker and it makes the initial first coat enough.

I was happy with how it made my brows still look fairly natural and fuller. I still applied product through them to extend the brow a little further as the tint didn't stick to well to that part but when not wearing makeup at all, i felt more put together and like my brows were more there in person that 'in spirit'.

The tint lasted in my brows for just about 3 days. Each day getting a little less noticeable. I don't think thats too bad going if your going on a little weekend break, where you don't want to wear a lot of makeup but still want your brows to look presentable and have a bit more fullness. 

Will you be trying Revolutions brow tint? I think it's a really cool item to have in your makeup collection to have as your just incase moments. Maybe you don't like wearing makeup but you want some fullness and shape in your brows... this could be the product for you!

You can get it on Revolution's website & from Superdrug
