The eyelure one you get in boots and superdrug works, think it's called dyebrow

I use Eyelure kit from Boots. You'll need a bowl of warm water, some cotton pads, some cotton ear buds and some Vaseline. I also use a small eyeliner brush to apply it as the one in the kit is useless. Use the cotton bud to smear a fine layer of Vaseline around your brows so you don't accidentally dye your skin, apply the dye and remove using pad soaked in warm water. I do several applications and only keep the dye on for a few seconds each time to avoid accidental scouse's really simple!

I use the eyelure boots one too. It's a doddle to use.

I don't bother with putting Vaseline on my skin either and I've never had a problem with skin being dyed. I leave it on for about 5 mins. I use the brown one because I'm pale and it doesn't look Scousey at all.

I used Eyelure the other day, and it barely bloody worked! So disappointed sad

(Yes, I mixed it correctly. Left it on longer than the recommended 5 mins max. Reapplied. Made sure brows were clean & dry before using. Etc etc.)

Refectocil works brilliantly. You can buy the entire kit for under £15 on Amazon. I clocked that it's the same stuff my salon uses so I thought I'd save some money and buy it myself.

Another one for Eyelure from Boots.

The only thing that I found is that the dye needs a lot (about 5×!shock) longer than the instructions to set. Once you get the dye to gold though, it's blooming brilliant and lasts for ages.

I use the Colorpsort 30 Day Mascara from Boots. Mix it up, leave it on for 1 min and ta-dah, all done.

Piece of cake.

Becles - what do you mean 'once you get the dye to gold' - or is that a typo? I'd love to know where I went wrong!

Second vote for Refectocil, the colour seems to last longer than the kits from Boots

FergusSingsTheBlues Sat 03-Jan-15 15:05:47

Colorrsmat for me too, although I don't think it lasts thirty days

Ahem - hold!!! grin The gold is a new unique style all my own discovery. grin

eyelure, I leave it on at least 10mins

You can get the Refectocil one from Sally's Beauty Supplies. It's good but I bought the Chestnut one and it comes very orange! Not a good brow look. Need to get a different brown. Lasts longer than other brands, IMO.

Eyelure. It worked on my lashes but couldn't see a difference on my brows as they're darker than the bloody dye! I'd buy black next time instead of brown
