Review: Eylure Dylash - Home Eyebrow Tinting...

Hello lovelies, I hope you're all ok & looking forward to the weekend =]

After posting a recent haul many of you asked for a review of Eylure Dylash, so here it is!
I originally bought the shade 'dark brown' but I didn't think my eyebrows came out dark enough. Dizzybrunette3 recommended purchasing the 'black' kit and mixing the two together, this is what I've done & I'm alot happier with the results.

Here is what you get in the kit...
Eylure Activating Solution
Eylure Dye
Mixing Tool
Application Tool

You get everything you need other than cotton wool & Vaseline (personal preference.)

How to dye your eyebrows:

♥ Carry out a sensitivity test 48 hours before dying your brows, I know this is boring but it really is a must! Mix 1cm of the dye & 3 drops of the solution together and put it behind your ear. If everything is ok & you have no reaction follow the next steps!

♥ Ensure your eyebrows are clean from all product & comb them through with an eyebrow brush.

♥ Prepare the dye by mixing 2cm of dye & 5 drops of solution. If you're mixing two dye's together them use 1cm of each dye.

♥ Mix the solution together with the mixing tool until you get a paste like the picture below.
Apply to the brows using either the applicator provided or a cotton bud.
My eyebrows before

♥ Leave for 1-2 minutes, it's better to leave it for less time than too long, you can re-do the dye if it doesn't come out dark enough but if they come out too dark you're stuck with it!
During application

♥ Wipe off the dye using either dry cotton wool or cotton wool with vaseline.
My eyebrows after

♥ You should be left with lovely dark eyebrows! =]

This is how my eyebrows looked after using the dye. If I want a more dramatic look I would finish them off with eyebrow powder & gel to set. The results should last for upto 6 weeks, I re-do mine every 3-4 weeks.

Overall I think this is a really good kit. The price of one kit that can last upto 12 applications costs less than a one off eyebrow tint in a salon. The only downside for me would be having to buy two kits but then they should last twice as long as one!

Eylure Dylash is available at Boots & Superdrug priced at £7.29.

Are you a DIY girl or do you prefer visiting a salon?

  1. I'll definately be snapping up a pack or two of this the next time I'm in Boots! My brows are too light for my liking and I find it so hard to hand money over for something I could do myself at home (and for cheaper too!) Great post! xo

  2. so so things i prefer a salon. but i like it naturally :)
    your blog is really nice so special- i'm following you now.

  3. love the dark brows
    Love your blog I will be visiting more often.
    If you have time I hope you can visit my new blog.

  4. You're blog seems pretty interesting!:) I tired once to dye my eyebrows and it was terrible. So no I just leave them be ;D

  5. YESSS. I have this pet peeve when it comes to eyebrows not matching the hair color. Even if it happens naturally D< IT FRUSTRATES MEEEEE~

  6. Brilliant review.. Just what I was looking for. :)
    I currently use a salon, but money being tight, I'm looking at alternates.. and was getting square eyes looking at ebay and googling for reviews/help
    Think I'll give Eylure a go. :)

  7. Cheers for the review - I've been looking for some permanent mascara for a few months now so I think I'll give this a try. I've actually gone for the Blue/Black shade of it - I hope it comes out ok! I'll report back with what happens... fingers crossed! Thanks again.

  8. great review, thanks

  9. Onde posso comprar? É ótima!
