A good brow product is hard to find. I am currently testing Revlon Colorstay Brow Tint. It is a waterproof felt tip style (its actually kind of rubbery, not a softer felt tip). I wasn’t sure what shade would be best so got 710 Dark Brown and 715 Soft Black as my brows are pretty dark. Turns out that dark brown is actually pretty light and much too light for my brows so I have swatches below on my arm for comparison shades for you.
Revlon Colorstay Brow Tint Review
Revlon Brow Tint is meant to be a temporary microblading look. You line the edges of your brows then fill in with soft feathery strokes. I find the tip is a little too thick for really feathery looks but does look quite realistic if you have a decent amount of brow hair anyway. It is not the most forgiving formula as it is waterproof and meant to last. So I usually do a little then use a spoolie so the tint doesn’t dry out. It is easy to go too hard on it and end up with dark/blocky brows so use a light hand. It does last all day though and once you get the hang of the formula/pen, can look great.
You can see a little near the tail end where I didn’t work through it quickly enough with a spoolie. Not especially noticeable unless you are up close. Given how dark my brows are naturally, I just use powder at the inside so they don’t end up too dark, but when my brows were thinner, Revlon Brow Tint would have worked well.
Revlon Colorstay Brow Tint Shade Comparison
My brows are pretty dark naturally and thanks to a medication that causes growth, pretty full at the moment. So I don’t need much help and just fill in any bald spots and use a powder to give them a smoother look. So for full shade comparison, here they are just drawn on my arm. Fairly realistic looking for no actual hair.
The Soft Black Revlon Brow Tint works for my brows if I use a very light hand. it has a touch of brown so looks natural on dark brows. However, Dark Brown is lighter and warmer than I would have thought from the shade name. I wish they hand an inbetween shade, or Dark Brown was just darker.
