Per-fekt-ly Cool but Pricey (4 Stars)
 
I recently received a sample sized version of this product in a promotional box of beauty goods I bought. At first I wasn't too sure what to make of it. It's pretty much mascara for eyebrows. But my inner new-experience craver had to give it a chance so I waited for one of those days between brow waxes when they were getting crazy, whipped out my Per-fekt Brow Perfection Gel and went to work.

My sample happened to come in Caramel, a color that looked downright orange-copper-ish on the brush. I was pretty sure it was going to look ridiculous but it was actually very subtle. Though I think the Espresso shade would have been more suited to my coloring—my hair is that dark brown that's almost black—it sold me on how useful the product is.


One problem I have with my eyebrows is that one has a natural bald spot. Penciling it in never looks natural and it's in just the right spot it can make it look like I accidentally overplucked the whole far end. As you can see from the picture above, the effect is subtle if you are looking for a natural look and filled in the hairs along the bald spot just right. Gently run it along the brow in the direction they should be going and if you desire smudge it a little to shade the skin. The product claims to be smudge resistant but I found I liked it better when smudged in just a little. The look I was after was natural but groomed and I was pretty happy with the results.

The only thing I really didn't care for was the brush itself. I think a smaller head on the wand, less mascara-like in size, would be less unwieldy. I had several clean-up spots along the top and bottom after applying it. It's a good product but the price is a bit steep for a product I wouldn't use every day. Otherwise this is a clever product that I definitely love the effect of. Worth investing in if you need a good brow taming product, I know a few guys who would seriously benefit from the clear version if they could get past the idea of using 'make-up'.
