Hi, DarkMoon! It's good to see you too. It's good to be back.

I love how you casually mentioned a safety issue with a product I used on my eyes. You know, you only get two of those (eyes) in your whole life! I had a panic moment until I realized the safety issue was before my batch. Laughing

Thanks for the laugh!


Oh sorry, I didn't mean to scare you, I should have been more clear! That's why I said they must have reformulated. Shock Laughing

It's permanent in the same way as a permanent hair dye - ie, the individual hairs or lashes fall out over time and so you usually need to re-dye them approximately once a month.

Thank you Carrie (& Mabsy) for the great review of 1000 hour lash & brow dye kit. It sounds great. Eyelash tint is a must for me, and I can't really afford to have it done at a salon. After many frustrating uses of the Roux black tint (that you mentioned) for my lashes because it was difficult & maybe dangerous to do on myself, I am ready to make the change and am ordering the 1000 hour lash kit in blue/black.

My question is about using the dark brown color on eyebrows. (I know the blue/black would be too dark for my brows).

Can someone please advise me about using 1000 hour in dark brown on brows? I have blond hair and my eyebrows are not visible if they aren't tinted. I am thinking about adding the 1000 hour in dark brown to my order so that I can tint my eyebrows. But, how dark is this dark brown? I wonder if the dark brown is too dark for someone with blond hair and light blue eyes. (I don't want to look like Groucho Marks).

I'd really appreciate a reply from someone who has used the dark brown color with blond hair with some advice on how the color looks. (I like a natural/light makeup appearance but want to have pretty eyebrows).

It would be really great if someone can tell me how the color of 1000 lash dark brown compares to the Roux brown, which I have been using and is definitely not too dark. Actually, something a little darker would be nice.
Thank you very much!! Very Happy

I purchased this in the blue/black and honestly,so far I do not know what all the hype is for. I did it yesterday and my lashes are pretty much the same light brown color and now my eyeballs have started to itch Sad

So sorry to hear it didn't work out. I wouldn't give in yet - maybe you need to try again in a few weeks and you'll have better luck.

I've always had a good result with this product so there are a few things that come to mind:

***Were your eyelashes free and clear of any oily residue? or any residue before applying?
***Did you mix appropriate quantities? (I am sure you did)
***Did you leave on for at least 10 minutes after applying?

I apply mine rather thick on both the top and underneath (mascara is usually applied on only one side but I hit both when I do the dye and focus strongly on the ends and base).

Thanks for your reply. Very Happy I believe I did all those things, but I suppose I could try leaving it for 20 minutes or using less developer. I used 10 drops of developer and one "1 inch" line of dye. (I assume that's what the directions meant??) I did have a hard time getting much of it to sit on the ends of my lashes. Did anyone else get prolonged itchy eyes? Mine still itch but it isn't as bad as last night and there isn't much swelling at all. I didn't get the product directly in my eyes while dying, in fact I avoided the base a bit just in case. Sister sweets, do you use black or blue/black dye?

hi, i'm a new kid on the block. have been following the conversation regarding lash tinting/dyeing. curious to know if everyone is still as excited about 1000 hour kit. i have also seen it at different sites for 12.95 and 14.95. do we think that's old stuff and should only be ordered from the aussie site? Rolling Eyes
thanks

Has anyone else experienced a similar situation where the tint isn't as dark out of the tube and doesn't color lashes as dark as previous tubes? I list the batch codes below...

I'll explain in more detail:
I've been using 1000 hour lash tint in blue/black for many years now and have loved the results. The last box I ordered and received, however, is not producing the same results as previous boxes. The tint is not as dark out of its tube and only tints my lashes 40% (compared to previous boxes I've used over the years that have tinted my lashes 100%). It's like the formula doesn't have as much pigment. I noticed it when I first used it even after following the same procedure I've always used. I thought I had just made a mistake so I tried tinting them again several weeks later and again many weeks after that (after letting my lashes "rest" for awhile) only to have the same results. Confused

Could there be something wrong with the manufacturing process of the tube I received?

Here is the batch information:
Batch 4054EU (on box)
061010 (on tube)

My concern is that if I did receive a "bad batch" or something that if I order and pay for another kit it will be the same if the formula has changed in the last year.

I ordered this last "bad" kit from the same site as previous years too (a New Zealand pharmacy first recommended to me by CareKate).

Also, I've emailed the company who makes it (ChemCorp) twice (first 1 month ago and again several days ago) and the pharmacy (once several days ago) with my concerns and haven't heard back. Frustrating when you don't hear back from a company! Rolling Eyes

Has anyone had success ordering from Amazon? I noticed there is a seller that now sells it and it would be faster shipping.

Thanks!
Amnis

Amnis, I haven't noticed that, but I have noticed that the color is lighter when I first open it and gets darker with each use. Then, the new tube does the same thing. It's light at first and gets darker each time. The pigment even looks darker coming out of the tube before I mix it. I don't know if it gets darker with age or if the pigment is more concentrated in the bottom of the tube, but it has happened with every tube.
