An Alternative Use

I love me a Maybelline Colour Tattoo - On & On Bronze is one of my all-time favourite products. But, I just couldn't get on with Permanent Taupe. The colour didn't look right on me - it made me look really tired - and it creased after a few hours which hasn't happened with the others I've used. However, I've discovered an alternative use!

When I made my brow routine post a few months ago, someone told me that they use Permanent Taupe on their eyebrows. Curiosity got the better of me a few weeks ago and I finally tried it out. I was dubious that it would be a little too pale for me, but it is a great colour! It is similar in shade to Mac's Charcoal Brown Eyeshadow which I normally use, but a tad more grey toned.

I run a spoolie through my brows then apply this in little strokes with an angled brush, shaping the front a little as I always do. The spoolie goes through again and Benefit's Gimme Brow Gel in Light/Medium follows to add a little more dimension and hold - and voila!

Have you found any products that have unintended uses?


  1. I use this on my brows on a daily basis! It might have been me who told you lol!

  2. I'd never have thought of using this for your eyebrows but it's probably the perfect colour for me! I've never bought it cause I always thought it was a bit of an odd colour! xx

  3. It is a bit of an odd one, I bought it with the intention of using it as a base colour but alas I didn't get on with it! But I do recommend it as a brow shade (if it matches, obviously!) - it looks natural and stays put all day ^_^

  4. I just checked and it was in fact you, haha - many thanks! ^_^

  5. Hahaha! That's funny to hear, I still love it :) x
