Brows are an essential part of your face. And having fierce brows elevates your makeup to a superpower level. While brow pencils, pomades and powders are the tools for bomb ass brows, there are some of us who want a more permanent solution.

Microblading is the closest thing to permanently arched brows, but let’s face it – we’re a little terrified. So for those of us who want a dupe – say hello to the Maybelline Tattoo Brow Gel Tint.

WHAT IT IS

MAYBELLINE Tattoo Brow is a game-changing peel-off gel-tint that leaves brows perfectly defined and evenly filled for up to 3 days.

MY VERDICT

I’ll admit, I was petrified of the Tattoo Brow too. Mainly because the image of one woman losing her brow hair thanks to something similar is ingrained into my brain.

Nonetheless, I prayed to the Lord Almighty and painted on the gel tint. Cleaning off the excess with a Q tip, and applying less in the front of the brows for a fade – I sat on the other side of my bed. Obviously, I was concealing myself from the husband cuz I didn’t want him to laugh at me.

(He’s probably used to me trying out something stupid every now and then. But I didn’t want to risk the reaction.)

15 minutes in, I gave into my anxiety and peeled the tint off. Which was surprisingly easy, by the way. It all came off in one go.

And what I saw next, I was stunned. My brows looked PERFECT! I was so happy!

HOWEVER. There’s one thing that I don’t like. The process tells you to not use any cleanser for 24 hours. Which is a bummer, because I can’t live without washing my face. And due to which, I lost the tint pretty early since it fades on using cleanser.

A small price to pay for something so affordable. Back to the tinting board!
