Perfect for blondes,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Refectocil Graphite 1.1 Eyelash and Eyebrow Tint 15ml (Personal Care)
The graphite colour is perfect for blondes, it's not too intrusive and it goes well with my light blonde hair. I only wanted a slight tinting on my eyebrows, so initially, I applied it for only about a minute, but then I reapplied it and left it longer to get a bit darker tint - it came out perfect! I would recommend multiple applications for those who only want a slight tint, as it's better to reapply and darken to a desired shade than it is to deal with too dark eyebrows. My eyelashes got this nice dark shade that I wanted after leaving the tint on for about 8-10 minutes. The tint gets darker as it dries out, so don't worry about its very light graphite colour at first; it gets very close to black with time, so leave it on until the desired shade. I didn't get any uncomfortable or stinging feeling at all untill I started washing it off with a cotton pad. A bit got into my eye and it stung slightly, but the feeling quickly went away, so no complaints about that.
I used the tint with a tint developer from a different company, as it was a lot cheaper than the Refectocil make and it worked well. The reason it didn't get full 5-star rating is because it doesn't come with all the things needed and they have to be purchased seperately (developer, brush, mixing container, pads). I used vaseline and cotton pads cut in halves as my eye protection pads and a small glass container for mixing the paste. Also, I found an old (clean!) mascara wand a lot more convenient and comfortable for apply the tint than the mixing stick that came with the tint, but I guess it's a matter of preference.
All in all, I'm pleased with this product and I will definitely use it again! No more overpriced salon visits!
