DIY BROW AND LASH DYE KITS | 1000 HOUR

A few weeks back I tried out the 1000 Hour brow and lash dye kits. I’ve tried the brow one previously but I was excited to try the lash one too.

I got the Natural Black shade for the lashes and the Dark Brown for the brows. It’s a fairly straightforward and easy process, you mix the drops and the shade together, apply vaseline (I used paw paw ointment) around your brows and lashes to ensure the skin around there doesn’t get dyed when you put the colour on.

You leave the brow mixture on for six minutes and the lash mixture on for ten minutes. It says for the mixture to use 2.5cm of paste and ten drops of the solution but I think in future I would use less as I didn’t need that much. I did keep both the brow and lash mixture on for the amount of time recommended but I think in future I would keep the brow mixture on for slightly longer.

Overall, I was pretty happy with the result, especially with the brows. I found it much easier to apply the brow mixture rather than the lash mixture and I saw far better result with the brow dye as well. But this could also be that this was my first time using the lash mixtures.

However I would have to say my biggest problem between the kits was how much the lash dye mixture stung my eyes. It was during the time it was on the lashes and once I removed it, it didn’t sting anymore. But it did highly irritate my eyes and they were quite red afterwards. So for that reason I would be super reluctant to use it again even thought the results were there.

If you want to see how my brows and lashes looked before and after then just watch the video linked above!

Have you tried this before? What did you think?

Love,

Sofia

    I’ve never seen these before, but it seems like a good option if you just want to try it out yourself x

    Amazing and honest review as usual Sof! xx I’ve used lash dye and brow dye before so the lash dye doesn’t irritate me at this point but my first time it was not a great experience! The brow gel looks fabulous though – I’ll definitely be giving that one a go! x

    The idea of lash dye scares me a bit, reading how it stung your eyes scares me even more! Glad that it worked wonderfully for your brows though. You must be brave to give the lash dye a try, I definitely would have chickened out!

    I always find lash dye so intimidating, but you make it sound simple. Maybe I’ll give it a try

    Ooh, the fact it stung your eyes while applied to your lashes makes it totally understandable why you wound’t want to try that again! On a brighter note, the brow kit sounds pretty great! πŸ™‚

    I’ve not really tried anything like these products before, I feel a bit strange using dye on my brows or lashes but then I’m quite fortunate to have very dark hair and to not really need to!

    It’s a shame the lash product irritated you! i have such sensitive eyes so that always makes me weary of things like this – they would react for sure on me!

    Hope you’re having a lovely weekend and thanks for sharing your honest review πŸ™‚
