Hello beautiful people!
Today I will talk about the new brow product from Nyx Professional Makeup! I am already a huge fan of Nyx, I use the brand’s foundations and lipsticks, so I had already high hopes because I know the products are amazing!
- Introduction & Ingredients
As you might know, I’m a huge fan of pen products, as they are so easy to use. Plus, you just need the pen and not the product + a brush, and it’s not messy at all!
Especially in the latest years, eyebrows trends have changed a lot and I feel like the focus will only increase! I still remember when everyone HAD TO have those “one-line” eyebrows, so did I, haha!
I have to admit it, I’ve always had important and full eyebrows, but because of that era of plucking them endlessly, now I have some “bald spots” I need to fill, plus of course I like make-up and enjoy making them pleasing to see.
Let’s have a closer look at the Lift & Snatch Brow Tint Pen by Nyx. Here is the INCI list:
AQUA / WATER / EAU, GLYCERIN, ALCOHOL, PEG/PPG-14/4 DIMETHICONE, PVP, PEG-40 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, TRIISOPROPANOLAMINE, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, LAURETH-21, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRA-DI-T-BUTYL HYDROXYHYDROCINNAMATE, SODIUM DEHYDROACETATE, PHENOXYETHANOL. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-): CI 77266 [NANO] / BLACK 2, CI 16035 / RED 40, CI 19140 / YELLOW 5, CI 42090 / BLUE 1.
The box and the website also insist on the flammability of the product, so…don’t put it on fire I guess?
The INCI is very common considering the make-up industry. If you are worried about Alcohol and Dimethicone (especially after reading my last post), I would suggest avoiding it only if you have bad irritations when using alcohol in products. If not, you are good to go! Dimethicone won’t cause pilling in this case, as you rarely put anything else on top of the eyebrows – or under – except a bit of powder, or SPF and creams! 😉
The packaging is eye-catching and you can clearly see the shade you are buying, what kind of product it is, and all the main information. I bought the Brow Tint for €13,50 on sale, usually it costs €16,90 at Sokos Helsinki. It contains 1ml of product and it has 6 months of life after opening. Also, the pen itself has a nice finish, meaning it doesn’t feel cheap and it has a good grip.
Fun fact, it’s made in South Korea. I think I’ve never seen or noticed products being made there (except for the Asian ones).
How to use it: Copy-pasted from Nyx website
“Shake pen at a downward angle. Fill in sparse areas with precise hair-like strokes and add definition to other brow areas.
Pro-Tip: To create a lifted look, flick applicator in an upward, vertical motion. Press harder for thicker hair-like strokes and lighter for thinner more natural looking hair-like strokes.”
- My experience
I have tried many other Eyebrow Pens, and most of the time they have an orange finish. Also, the colors available are 3 so you can be pretty sure you won’t find your color 🤣
This time, I was really satisfied. Of course, the product doesn’t cost €4, but you are paying for a quality product. The brow tint comes in 10 colors and I chose Espresso. The next one would have been black, which is too dark for me.
As you can see from the before and after picture, the product is AMAZING! It’s really easy to use and it gives a natural finish! I LOVE the precision of the pen and it’s long-lasting: a must, since summer is coming!
Moreover, the shade is perfect for my brows, I’ve used natural light for these pictures so the result is exactly what I wished for! Super impressed! 💜
My vote is 5 / 5 moons!
I really have nothing bad to say about this, nor I can find any flaws or advice for improvements! Well done once again, Nyx Professional Makeup!
