Whenever Revlon launch a new product within their ColorStay range, I’m instantly interested and on board for trying it. The Revlon ColorStay Foundation as been a favourite of mine for ten years and I’ve really liked many of their ColorStay products which have launched since their bestselling foundation. Their newest launch is the Revlon ColorStay Brow Tint but in all honesty I haven’t found a Revlon brow product which has worked for me as their Brow Crayon didn’t offer enough precision, and their Brow Pencil was a little too soft for my liking. The Revlon ColorStay Brow Tint however caught my eye as I don’t own anything like it format wise within my collection and I crossed my fingers I’d be able to find a good shade match.
The Revlon ColorStay Brow Tint is available in four shades according to their website but there’s just three on the Boots website. Three or four shades just isn’t inclusive enough in my opinion and there is definitely room for improvement but I decided upon Dark Brown, but there is a shade darker than this which is Soft Black. The Brow Tint is £7.99 which is pretty normal for Revlon eye and brow products but Revlon often have 3 for 2 deals on their products either at Superdrug or Boots.
NEW ColorStay™ Brow Tint has an ultra-fine tip applicator that delivers precise, feather-like strokes for smudge proof color that lasts for up to 24 hours.
• Waterproof, buildable, and lightweight formula for a variety of looks (ranging from natural to more intense)
• Smudge-proof color lasts up to 24 hours
• Comes in 4 natural shades
• Precisely tints and shapes for an easy all day alternative to microblading
When I read the description of the Revlon ColorStay Brow Tint, I wasn’t entirely sure how it could be buildable and a brow tint in one. The applicator is a short, flexible foam spike and the tube has a ball bearing inside which you need to shake before use otherwise you end up with really faint strokes like those at the bottom of my swatches. If you do shake the tube prior to application, the applicator becomes more ‘wet’ and more intense.
I have to be honest, I prefer the effect without shaking the tube as I can build colour and intensity gradually rather than going in with super intense strokes and ending up with Nike ticks for brows. When I saw the applicator I was a little sceptic on how it’d perform but I’m a fan. I disagree the tint gives a microblade effect as the applicator just doesn’t give the precise tiny strokes you get with microblading, but for £7.99 it’s really good and it stays in place all day.
Have you tried any of the Revlon brow range before?!
