Colorsport eye brow definer
I don't usually use an eye brow definer but when I was given one to try out, it seemed churlish not to do so.
WHAT DOES IT DO?...
This is supposed to give maximum impact with minimum effort so sounds like my kind of make up routine!
It is supposed to define and shape your eye brows to frame your face and the "unique" nib will give an even smooth line, with the ink drying instantly and lasting for 8 hours.
PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...
The eye brow definer comes in has a peel off plastic cover over the top of a card board backing which has all of the instructions and information I am likely to need.
The product itself is brown (this is a brown eye brow definer so I assume the black will be black). It is a tube like shape and when I pull off the lid, the definer looks like a felt tipped pen with a sharp point- obviously to get into any sparse bits without making a mistake and ending up with eye brows all over my brow. It glides on easily and is quite a light brown in colour, so for me it really is too light; I bought it as I thought the black would be too severe, but clearly I got it wrong. It doesn't feel oily or greasy and the ink dries quickly so it doesn't smudge. However, a word of warning here; it comes off easily with soap and water and so I am sure it will come off in the rain or in damp climates. This would not be a good look.
You must ensure that your skin is dry otherwise it won't "stick" to the skin. Once this is done, then simply draw along the line of your natural brows making sure you fill in any gaps or light areas.
PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...
Widely available in black or brown, this costs £6.99, and is also available in a waterproof version.
To complement these "perfect" eye brows, Colorsport suggests:
* 24 hour eyeliner in brown or black
* 30 day mascara in brown or black.
I bought this on a whim and it did prove to be completely unnecessary as I don't have gaps in my eye brows but having read some articles, had decided that this was the way forward to a polished look.
It is very easy to use and for someone who wants their eye brows to look fuller, then I imagine it would work. However, as I said before, it's not waterproof, so if one is needed, then the waterproof version is probably a much wiser buy. It is easy to remove and didn't irritate my skin at all, and is also non greasy, so as far as quality is concerned, I have no complaints.
I am giving this a 3 star because it is not completely useless, and is good quality, it's just not for me.
If you need an eye brow definer then this could be what you are looking for.
