Etude House Color My Brows #5 Blondie Brown Review

I may not have a blonde hair and probably won't go for that in my lifetime BUT, when it comes to my brows, I always go for the lightest shade because I enjoy mixing my eyebrow mascara with eyebrow powders and pencils!  That's my "playtime" and you know it's fun!  *winks*

During Etude House sale last Holiday, I went ahead and picked Etude House Color My Brows because I can never have enough brow mascaras!  This product is also the most requested Etude House makeup for review and alam niyo naman..malakas kayo sa akin!  *wink wink*

Color My Brows comes in 5 wonderful shades!  I never thought they would have almost all the shades a makeup artist needs!  That's why I have to test this immediately and see if I can tote this along with me on gigs!

Etude House Color My Brows says ---

Eyebrow mascara supplies brown/gold tones to match the various color treatments for Asian Hair with comb to set, shade and moisten brows for a refined and natural look.
Size: 4.5g
Shades: #1 Rich Brown,  #2 Light Brown, #3 Red Brown, #4 Natural Brown and #5 Blondie Brown

AMW says ---
  • Simple packaging.
  • Diamond head mascara wand making it very easy to maneuver.
  • Packaging color is the same as the color of the mascara.
  • Comes in 5 different shades!  And yes, they have Blondie Brown!  My favorite shade for eyebrow mascara!
  • Sets really well and doesn't transfer. 
  • Stays the whole day.
  • Pigmentation is quite good and you can layer it.
  • One coat is actually good enough to color your brows.
  • Price!  And it gets even better during sale season!  I got mine during the holidays for less than Php300.00!

  • May leave mascara "clump" no matter how careful you are with application.
  • Has a tiny bit of sparkles which doesn't really affect the overall look but I still prefer a satin finish brow mascaras.
Not a bad mascara considering the price!  The Etude House Color My Brows is highly pigmented, easy to apply even for first-time brow mascara users.  It stays for more than 8 hours for normal/dry skin.  May clump if not applied properly.


  • Swipe off excess product from mascara wand before you apply on your brows.
  • If you suffer from acidic skin, do not forget to apply primer even on brows to keep the color (especially to the lighter colored ones)
  • If you have extremely oily skin, tap your brows with an oil-control translucent powder to keep the brow mascara longer lasting.
  • Follow up with a brow pencil or brow powder.
  • Wait for sales every now and then by following their FB account so you can repurchase and stock up on your favorite Etude House items.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Blondie Brown works so well for light colored hair or users who like to Cosplay!  Yes, finally!  We have inexpensive light-colored brow mascaras!

Where to purchase and how much?
Priced at Php378.00 (approx $8.80) available online and Etude House branches near you.

With just 2 swipe, check out how it drastically changed the color of my brows!

As for every light colored brow gel, you need to follow up with a brow pencil or brow powder to define your eyes and fill in the gaps!   In this post, I used Happy Skin Eye Love View Pencil & Marker Eyebrow Duo in Chic Brown

Check how my brows look lighter yet very natural!

Have you tried Etude House's Color My Brows?
Do you follow up brow mascaras with pencils or powders?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!


  1. Oh! I've been doing it wrong all this time! I've been using Etude House Color My Brows for a few years already but I apply it after filling in my brows with Etude House Drawing Eyebrow pencil. Will try to do it in reverse and hope it will be more natural looking like your brows. Thanks for this review!

    1. No worries! Enjoy and let me know how it works this time!

  2. I tried the same color and I just thought it made my brows disappear hahah.
