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?
