Growing up, I was teased my by close friends about how I had "no eyebrows." It was all in good fun but as I entered my teenage years, it was a statement that really stayed with me. Of course I had eyebrows; they were just thin and sparse.
That didn't last as I grew older, however.

Because of the way my eyebrows were beginning to fill in, I decided the best course of action would be to pluck them. I mean, it couldn't be that bad, right? Wrong. When plucking didn't seem like a viable option for me (Ouch!), I started shaving them. The first few times were total disasters. It led to even thinner, sparse eyebrows that needed quite a bit of "filling in."

Fortunately, I was recently able to try Lashem Color Strokes Brow Tint & Lift. When the opportunity presented itself, it's no surprise that I jumped on it.
The Lashem Color Strokes Brow Tint & Lift contains lash enhancing serum, which is said to condition your brows. Not only that, but it tints your brows for shape and fullness. The whole idea here is to achieve full, natural looking brows.
The bottle itself is pleasing to the eye: Very shiny and mirror-like, and quite comfortable to hold in the hand. The wand looks like a stick-straight mascara wand. Being that I'm brown-haired beauty, I chose the brunette color choice.
Upon seeing the color, I felt that it was probably a little too light for my brows. I am a brunette, but my natural hair color is a dark brown, more than a light brown (which is what the Lashem Color Strokes Brow Tint & Lift in Brunette appears to be).
Below, you'll see what my brows looked like prior to applying Lashem Color Strokes Brow Tint & Lift.
Below, you'll see what my brow looked like after one coat of the brow tint.
And then after two coats.
And finally, after three coats.
However, when it comes to my eyebrows, this is not exactly the look I desire.
You see, I prefer cleaner, neater eyebrows. I like clearly visible starting and stopping points from all angles. For a better idea of how I like my brows, take a look at the two pictures below.
The picture on the left is of the Lashem Color Strokes Brow Tint & Lift. The one on the right is how I typically prefer my brows to look (which is done with eyeshadow, as brow pencils have never worked very well for me).
For those like me, however, who like the tried and true, it's not really a trend that I'll be jumping in on anytime soon.
