|Billion Dollar Brows Hint of Tint Tinted Brow Gel in Blonde Review |
This Billion Dollar Brows Hint of Tint Tinted Eyebrow Gel originally came in a Wantable Makeup Box (review here). I have this in the shade blonde which is for fair hair and is perfect for me as I'm currently blonde. This shade is quite ashy and cool toned in comparison to a lot of the more orange and warmer toned blonde eyebrow products I've tried previously. It's also available in 'Taupe' which is for medium to dark hair.
This tinted eyebrow gel is packaged in a tube with a spoolie brush applicator which is much like a traditional mascara wand. This product is designed to be applied to the brows by combing the product through the brows. In one step, this product shapes brows, adds colour and gel. I personally think that the best way to apply this product is with a light hand and by gradually building up the coverage
as it will just look messy if packed on too heavily and it can also smudge onto the skin around the brows. The formula is quite wet but does dry down to a well set and lasting finish. The thing I probably like best about this product is that it can be very quick to use which is especially good if you just want to define and set your brows all in one step.
The spoolie wand is quite large for my fine eyebrows and I do find it a little bit difficult to be precise with at times.
It is possible to apply this product with a small angled brush instead but I actually do like the spoolie brush concept, I would just prefer it to be a
little bit smaller. When I do accidentally smudge a little on my skin, I just go in with a cotton bud dipped in some foundation or concealer and it's easy to clean up any mess around the edges to create a crisp, clean shape.
I think that this product is best used for creating a natural look but with a little perseverance, you can build this up to get quite a decent amount of colour payoff without it looking like you just drew on your eyebrows with a crayon! As you can see in the picture above, this did a good job of filling in my sparse and unruly inner brow area. This product isn't super cheap but it does last for ages. I've been using this at least 5 days a week for nearly 6 months now and it's still going strong!
All in all this is a nice brow product, but I would like to try out some similar products from the drugstore such as the Rimmel Brow This Way Brow Gel before deciding whether or not to repurchase this one as it can be difficult to get hold of in the UK.
EDIT: Billion Dollar Brows products are now readily available and easy to find in the UK! You can find your local stockist here.
