*Want to mention that I bought these stick on eyebrows temporary tattoos with my own money. This post is NOT sponsored. I just loved these so much that I wanted to share it with you all. This post does include my Amazon affiliate links though.
If you think you have heard it all, along comes stick on eyebrows temporary tattoos! Are they for real? Apparently, they are and I am HOOKED on them.
If you know me personally, then you would know my story about my damn eyebrows. It all started way back when I was a teenager growing up in the ’80-’90s. Thanks to overplucking my eyebrows, I now have hardly any to work with.
My whole entire life after the ‘overplucking‘ era, my poor eyebrows have NEVER been the same. So much hair loss! I have been SO self-conscious about my eyebrows ever since. I wish so badly that I never participated in the ‘thin eyebrows‘ trend, but I did. So, here I am!
About 4 years ago, I decided to get my eyebrows tattooed on (read that story here). I think this was before the microblading was popular and I thought my only way out was to get my eyebrows tattooed on. BIG mistake!!!!
I thought I did my research on the lady who was going to do them. I should have run at my first gut instinct NOT to get them done, but I ignored my gut feeling because I wanted my eyebrows to be ‘normal‘ again and I wanted to actually have some eyebrows again!
After she was done tattooing my eyebrows on, I will NEVER forget the horror of looking in the mirror at them. They were absolutely HORRIBLE and they were completely different from one another! They did not match AND they were SO dark I wanted to crawl into a hole and never emerge from it.
I cried the whole way home and tried to scrub off my newly tattooed eyebrows. When my hubby got home from work he brought me back to the lady who had done them and demanded she fixes them immediately. She kind of did, but I have had to live with these messed up eyebrows for years now. So, once again, I am SELF CONSCIOUS about my eyebrows.
I spent so much money that I had saved to that woman who destroyed my eyebrows. And, I was back to square one of hating, absolutely hating my eyebrows!!! I really should have sued that woman because I found out she was not even certified to do eyebrows!!! But, the last thing I wanted was for my face/eyebrows to be plastered everywhere for the world to see if I did sue her.
So, I quietly disappeared. I did not want to be ridiculed or called names by strangers who saw my pictures, so I just went away quietly. Doesn’t it suck that because of horrible and cruel humans I had to keep my mouth closed??? If we could all be kind, what a thought, huh?
Anyway, back to the eyebrow story…
So, I went back to what I did before getting my eyebrows tattooed and just used eyebrow pencil EVERY single day. Again, I was self-conscious and just hated my brows. And, to top it off, my left eyebrow is darker than my right eyebrow so penciling them in is difficult because one is ALWAYS darker than the other. Another thing for me to HATE and be self-conscious about, yay!!!
I tried those tattoo pens that you can buy. They made it look SO damn easy with their videos. I bought several different types of tattoo pens and they absolutely did not work for me. They were way too hard to get them right and I hated them. It was just easier to pencil them in!
Then I tried the henna tint for your eyebrows. You are supposed to ‘paint‘ the henna tint on your brows and then leave it on for about an hour or longer. I left mine on ALL night long. I woke up and then ‘peeled’ off the henna tint and it barely did ANYTHING to my eyebrows. Given, I don’t have hardly any hair BUT it is supposed to dye the skin too and it just did not work at all. So that was a waste of money too!
I was literally just going to accept that I will be drawing on my eyebrows for the rest of my life, whatever. Then, on Facebook, I saw an ad for those temporary tattoo eyebrows and I researched it a bit. I went to their site and I read everything I could about these Stick On Eyebrows Temporary Tattoos. Then, I laughed really hard and ordered some! Ha, why the heck not.
I ordered from Brows by Bossy. It was really easy to place my order and very surprisingly, my Stick On Eyebrows arrived by the end of the week. That was unheard of for a product I ordered from a Facebook ad. Usually, things take FOREVER to arrive at my home when I order something from a Facebook ad, but, here it is! So, that was impressive.
It comes in a thin cardboard envelope and inside there are 11 pairs of arched eyebrows. However, it depends on what style of eyebrows you choose that will determine how many pairs you receive. I received 11 because I ordered the arched eyebrows.
Let’s Talk About The Styles of Eyebrows They Sell, First
I first want to talk about the styles/colors you can buy first. You visit their site and you can choose which shape you want of their temporary tattoo eyebrows.
*Arched (what I bought)
*Brown (the color I bought)
There were a lot of helpful pictures to help me choose which style and color I needed. The ordering process was simple too. And, as I stated above, it shipped very quickly. So, a great first impression.
Now, Back To The Stick On Eyebrows Temporary Tattoos…
When I opened the package, I pulled out the directions on how to use/put on these stick on eyebrows and I pulled out the sheet with 11 pairs of eyebrows on it.
If you have ever done a temporary tattoo, then you KNOW how this works already. Here is how I got the temporary eyebrow tattoos ready for me to apply them:
*Cut around the temporary tattoo eyebrow (cut each one, left and right, individually out)
*Before you cut too much of the paper around the temp tattoo off, make sure you pull off the top clear paper first. I did not and it was irritating trying to get it off after I had trimmed the paper around the eyebrow. So, that is a helpful tip for you all.
*Once the temporary tattoo eyebrows are cut out and the clear plastic is off of them, carefully line them up with your natural eyebrows. I do one at a time because it is easier for me.
*Once the temporary eyebrow tattoo is lined up (I WISH these temporary eyebrow tattoos were see-through because it would be SO much easier to line them up with your natural brows!) then you press them on your natural eyebrow and then use a wet cloth and hold it on the temp tattoo until the temp tattoo is completely wet. Takes just a few seconds.
*Then, CAREFULLY pull the paper off of the temporary eyebrow tattoo starting at the end part (eyebrow wings) and pulling towards the bigger part of the brow (towards the bridge of your nose).
*Then, do the other brow
I am SO freaking self-conscious to show this picture, but if it helps ONE person, then my job is done. If you are a bully who wants to make fun of me, then shame on you…
*You can still see my effed up tattooed brow a bit under the temporary eyebrow tattoo but I will take it! Nothing a bit of makeup can’t cover up…
SO easy to do and I think I only messed up ONE time (knock on wood). I absolutely could not believe my eyes when I saw the first temporary eyebrow tattoo. They work! I was just so stoked! And, they looked REAL. As in they actually have little human hairs that look real!
I was laughing because who the heck would have thought that THIS would work, lol. So, I went straight to Facebook on my personal page and shared some pictures with my friends. I just couldn’t believe how well these worked!
How Long Do The Fake Eyebrows Last?
I did a test too. The first pair I put on lasted for about 2 days before they started looking gross. I tend to sweat a lot (I work out every day) and my face can get greasy, but these puppies stayed put for 2 whole days! I was so pleased!
How Do I Take Care Of My False Eyebrows Once They Are On?
To ensure they stay put, when you wash your face, just don’t wash your eyebrows. I use a washcloth and wash around my eyebrows. Pretty easy!
How Do I Make The Shine Of The Temporary Eyebrows Go Away?
We all know that temporary tattoos have some sort of shine to them. To make these eyebrows look more realistic, I put a little bit of face powder over them. This will take that shine off of them and make them more matte/real looking.
How Do I Take Off My Temporary Eyebrow Tattoos?
These are SO easy to take off. I just use a wet washcloth and wipe them up. You can also use baby oil or some sort of makeup remover. Dry the area completely and then reapply those temp eyebrows stat! So much more easier than drawing on my eyebrows day in and day out!!!!
I am already almost finished with my first sheet of temporary eyebrows, so I bought another sheet of 11 pairs so I don’t run out of them. I really like them that much.
I wanted to really show you the details in these brows so I put one on my hand. You can clearly see how realistic they look!
Would If The Brows Are Too Big For My Face?
If your temporary brow tattoos are too big for your face then you can trim them! Just cut them smaller. Easy peasy! I did not want to cut mine smaller as they fit my face nicely.
How Much Do Stick On Eyebrows Temporary Tattoos Cost?
The price is reasonable. They are $19.99 for a sheet of 11 or so (depends on which style you choose). You can also buy one get one for 50% off right now AND free USPS shipping (which is super fast), so that would be the way to go. They also sell some similar to this brand, on Amazon.com. And they are cheaper. BUT, I have not tried the ones on Amazon, only the ones from Brows by Bossy.
