The Nyx Tinted Brow Mascara comes in a cardboard black box, with one transparent side, so you can see the product even when it is in the box. The writing on the box is white, detailing the brand, the name of the product, the color, the ingredients and the directions for use. Once you open the box, you will find a 10cm long tube, similar in size to a regular lash mascara, but smaller in width than most. The black top unscrews from the brown bottom part, with the brand and the name of the product in a white font, in both French and English. The cardboard box can be thrown out after opening, as it is not especially pretty, or useful. The Tinted Mascara tube itself is quite practical for travel, it can fit in any purse and looks quite sober.
There are five available shades for this tinted mascara: TBM 01 Blonde, TBM 02 Chocolate, TBM 03 Brunette, TBM 04 Espresso and TBM 05 Black.
We reviewed the TBM 04 Espresso shade.
The Espresso tinted brow mascara has a very chemical smell when in the tube, but once applied the smell doesn’t transfer, which is good.
This product is quick and easy to use. You need to gently brush the application brush on your eyebrows, starting at the top of the nose, and finishing near the hair, in a straight but curved movement, following your brow from beginning to end. You don’t need to add or reapply, just adjust depending on the look you are looking for, slightly tainted or full on large dark brows.
This brow mascara is quite efficient. It adds color and fills the brows, plumps them up and holds them in place. The tint helps make your brow look deeper while still preserving a natural look. Another notable advantage is that it lasts a long time, so there’s no need to reapply during the day or evening.
We would recommend this brow mascara to anyone with a full brow shape already, as it is harder to add to the shape of the brow due to it only being able to coat hairs not skin. However, it really creates a ‘real hair’ look making brows look fuller when needed and naturally thick and defined. Overall, this product works better with denser eyebrow hair and thicker eyebrows overall. We wouldn’t recommend it as an only solution for someone who has very thin shape, or non-existent brows that need to be fully drawn and shaped.
This product is sold in Lebanon for 10.2$ which is more affordable then similar products like Bourjois Brow Design Eyebrow Mascara sold at 16$.
