My Thoughts on NYX Tinted Brow Mascara
The NYX brow mascara had been in my wishlist for a long time and this cruelty-free beauty is just what I needed to reduce the time I spend in doing my eyebrows.
The NYX Tinted Brow Mascara comes in a slender tube packaging, similar to every brow mascara out there. It has a soft spoolie that is large enough to cover the entire brow area in a single motion and also coats every single hair. You have to dip the wand to get some product on the spoolie and brush your brows away. The brow tint comes in a black cardboard packaging that mentions all the product details.
The formula is not too heavy, neither does it give me crunchy, itchy brows that you might notice with most of the brow gels. However, it’s not a super lightweight formula that would make you feel like you haven’t applied anything on the brows – it does feel slightly tacky.
The NYX tinted brow mascara is available in 3 shades in India – Espresso Dark Brown, Brunette Brown and Black. (Originally, it comes in 5 shades but only 3 are available here) I bought the shade ‘Black’.
Don’t go by the shade name ‘Black’! It is not an unnatural dark black shade that would make your brows look horribly painted. The shade black is actually a cool-toned brown-black colour that would suit most of the dusky skin women. The colour matches my actual hair colour and gives me natural-looking brows in just 10 seconds.
One thing I was concerned about before trying tinted brow mascaras was the overly pigmented products that would just create a mess and give me painted eyebrows. Or worse, the tint barely shows up! But the NYX one is adequately pigmented and all I need is to apply two coats with the spoolie and that is enough to provide me decent coverage while making sure my brows stay in place all day.
How to use NYX Tinted Brow Mascara?
1. When I’m running late, all I do is brush my brows with it to make sure all the bald patches are covered in the tint. Firstly, I brush the brow hair in an upward motion and then horizontally, towards the outer area to make sure that every strand of hair is coated and the skin underneath that hair also pick up some pigment.
2. If I’m looking for drama then I fill my brows with the Colourpop precision brow pencil and then go with the brow mascara to get bolder brows.
Note: When you apply the brow mascara, give it a few seconds to dry and set.
The brow tint keeps my brows stay in place all day with little to no fading when it comes to the tint. It is smudge-proof and sweat-proof and only comes off when I remove it with a makeup remover.
The NYX Tinted Brow Mascara is a must-have for people looking to up their brow game and get well-defined natural-looking brows without spending a lot of money. It’s cruelty-free, works great and the only minor downside is that it needs a few extra seconds to set.
