Noir, dramatic colour
I already possess fairly dark lashes and brows, but upon spying this DIY tinting kit whilst browsing in the pharmacy, I decided to give it a go. I was curious to see whether it would deliver the same expert results as a salon lash and brow tint. My first application was a bit clumsy, and I found the plastic mixing dish and flimsy wand rather fiddly. The peroxide solution came out a bit faster than anticipated, but I managed to whip up a bluish cream that I carefully applied to my brows and top lashes. Being a novice, I ended up dyeing the skin around my eyebrows as well. I waited the recommended ten minutes, then gently wiped away the excess colour with a wet paper towel. I have to say my brows and lashes were definitely darker and much more dramatic, and I was pleased with the bold contrast against my porcelain skin.
Applying Vaseline under and above brows, as well as above the upper and lower lash line is a must, to prevent the dye from staining the skin. Don't worry too much if you accidentally smear some excess onto the surrounding skin, as this will wash off in a few days.

Do simple to apply by yourself without getting irritated! The colour stains the lash from the root to tip. My eyes didnt even water.
i would defintly recommend this to anyone who doesnt have time or cant afford to go to a beauty salon to get their lashes tinted.

Easy shiny glossy lashes, but could last longer.
I bought this on impulse, as my fair colouring means that without mascara my eyes look very poorly defined. My first attempt resulted in unbearably stinging eyes but afterwards I was super impressed by the result. It didn't look like I had mascara on, as there was so extra length or volume; but when I looked in the mirror my eyes looked defined and more awake!
Next time I refined my application technique to avoid the pain and I've got a packet of this on my shopping list at the moment. My only gripe is that the dye doesn't last longer on the lashes, the effects probably fade after 3 weeks - however I still wear daily mascara and use eye make up remover so this must be the equivalent of daily shampooing over your new highlights.
I don't bother cutting out the pieces of paper from the instruction sheet, I just use a tissue under my lower lashes and haven't had a problem with staining. On my upper lashes I concentrate on the roots and the tips, which are the areas which I feel give the most dramatic results. I brush it on like mascara and do both eyes at once. As long as you are careful, none should get into your eyes.
Anybody who would like to improve their make up free appearance.

I love this product, there are plenty of days that I skip wearing makeup in Summer but I still want to look done and darkening my lashes and brows is the way to go. I have dark brown to black lashes and my brows are a tiny bit lighter so depending on my hair colour at the time I find that blue-black makes a noticeable difference to both but I only leave the dye on my brows for a couple of minutes. I do my own to save time and money and I find the best way is with a mascara wand so that I can get really close to the roots and cover all of the hairs without getting it everywhere, I don't even bother with the Vaseline but just use a q-tip to remove any boo boos straight away and all is good.
If doing your own use a mascara wand to apply since this is something we all have practice with and only leave the colour on your brows for a couple of minutes.
Pretty much everyone as I've had no sensitivity when using.

Looks good but hard to apply
I keep a box of this but would prefer a salon eyelash tint as it is hard to apply - quite messy, and time consuming to mix it up.
last minute when you cant get an appointment :)

I used this product solely on my lashes and I'm so happy I bought it.
It's such a bargain when you consider this kit (which claims to have 12 uses) cost the same as a professional job :D
The instructions are great and easy to understand. It recommends 2.5cm and 10 drops of the products but when I did that I probably only used half of the mixture on my lashes.
Make sure you apply Vaseline or something similar to prevent staining of the skin around the eye area.

Enhance your natural look
My lashes look thinner and shorter than they are as they are are brown that fades to blond at the tips. I probably only wear makeup a couple of days a month now that I don't go out much. I wanted something to bring out my eyes a bit so I gave this a go. The kit comes with a tube of colour and bottle of developer. It's hard to mix it exactly as the instructions state so a bit of guess work is involved. There is a small plastic applicator included but I found an old mascara brush works better (I use a rimmel comb type brush rather than a bushy type brush). Mixing the developer and colour takes some patientce as the they don't tend to want to blend and the colour just moves around in the developer.
To apply I first carefully put vaseline over and under my eyes, trying to avoid getting it on my lashes. Then very carefully try to liberally coat my lashes with the colour. I keep cotton buds handy to clean up any mistakes immediately.
Be very, very careful to not get this on your eyeball it hurts so much! If you do rinse immediately until the pain goes away.
I notice a dramatic difference after colouring my eyelashes and would estimate the colour lasts for over a week but it does fade and if I wanted it to last I would have to dye my lashes every two weeks but I can live with once every 1-2 months.
Keep cotton tips ready
protect your skin from colouring with vaseline
use an old mascara brush rather than the included applicator
This colour is ideal for women with blue eyes and mid-dark coloured hair. My hair is light brown and it's perfect, when I was blond I used brown so it looked natural.

Easy peasy, but not a long-lasting colour
I tried this product and hoped it would be a fail-safe 6 week dye, but it seemed to fade (or wash off with my makeup remover) quite easily. I will definitely try it again, as there are twelve applications in the box and at under $20, it's a great deal cheaper than a professional eyebrow dye.

great for light lashes
This is an excellent product for those with fair lashes, but not so good for people whose lashes are naturally dark. It didn't make much difference on me, my lashes were slightly darker but it doesn't replace mascara and really, it's an extra step that I don't need. I think if you swim a lot, don't like wearing mascara or have fair lashes, it would be great, but for me it's kind of pointless.
