Review: Etude House Color My Brows Review


My older post explains why I bought a brow gel that is uber light. Dark brows + light hair doesn't really mix well together. Even applying a very light brown powder can't make my brows look light and natural with the hair color I am sporting.

This has been in the market a very long time now and maybe many of you already have used this product. Does anyone here uses this? How was it? :) I planned to get James Cooper's brow gel but it was out of stock. Anyhoo, I got mine in the shade #2 at SM City Cebu Etude House boutique. It's the lightest shade they have. It is also available in shade #1, which is in brown.  I got this for only P348.00. Cheap ehh? Yes!



The product is inside a booklet form of packaging. With English directions at the back and ingredients inside.

Color My brow #2

Unlike other brow gels, its packaging is in plastic and opaque. No, you can't see the remaining product and it sucks. But those transparent one, the product dries and you end up not seeing the product also. Rig

I don't hate the want but I want it a bit smaller, like benefit's. Though the slim tip is great for the inner corners of the brows and tiny hair on the outer part.


Unblended and Blended swatch
It's really light and is suits light colored hair so much. It also has micro glitters that makes it really light after it dries and sets. I know it can't be seen in this photo but it does have micro glitters, ok?

 Pros:
  • Doesn't clump. Not sticky at all.
  • Not heavy
  • Cheap
 Cons:
  • Excessive application may lead to orange brows.

I am gonna show you, how do my brows with these products.

Bare eyebrows
Defined my brows by using IN2IT's brow powder with Marrionnaud's brush.
After I just apply directly the brow gel on my brows. Gently tinting every hair, but not pushing the brow gel wand on to the skin.

Before and After
Before and After
Light brows for my light brown hair. It suits really well and looks so natural. I really don't like the super drawn brows except on photoshoots because you got to have defined brows. Because natural looking brows results to...see the photo above? Yup. But it is perfect if seen in person.

I am a satisfied consumer. It compliments my hair color and look so natural. But you have to practice using this because it requires a light hand upon applying to avoid orange brows---if you have an orange hair, then this is also for you! I recommend this to people who has light hair and orange hair.

Overall
8.75/10

  13. I've recently bought this brow mascara however i find that it always smudges on my eyebrows, it doesn't seem to happen to you though! In fact it makes your eyebrows look so amazing! Maybe it's just not the product for me hehe!

  14. Maybe a light hand would do the trick? I always make sure to put it only on the eyebrow (hair only), never would the brush touch the skin underneath. :)

  19. Have you tried changing your hair color? :) It really depends. I now have dark brown hair and I am gravitating towards dark brown brows nowadays. Orange-y brows looks weird on me right now. Hahaha
