As an avid user of Kevyn Aucoin's brow pencil which I only use to define my brows on special occasions, I thought this mascara would not change my opinion of KA. I was wrong.
I love this mascara gel so much! It's natural and easy to use. I even use it for my roots.
I am on my second tube of this which says a lot considering I balked at the price the first time.
I've been using a sample of this in caramel, and just ordered the full size.
I have graying eyebrows, that are beginning to thin at the tail. I've tried other mascara-type brow products, but the colors just seem to be off and look unnatural. I had been using powder, but it looks just like what it is--powdered in brows. With this product, I *lightly* swipe some on and it covers the grays and coats what hairs I have in the tail, giving a fuller look. Looks very natural on me.
Wish more people knew about this eyebrow gel! It is so much better than powder or crayons because it looks more natural, and is more controllable. I just got lucky and discovered it when a Dior stylist used it on me.
It fill sparse areas without you having to draw lines. I have medium to dark reddish brown hair and the caramel was the color the advisor used on me. It looks great and also works on my medium blonde daughter if used lightly.
It does take some practice to apply it the way you want. The Dior advisor who used this on me showed me a nice way to apply it using a curling motion in the opposite direction of how you want it to lie so that it coats both sides of graying eyebrows. (almost the opposite of the way you apply mascara.)
The only thing better is dying your brows but even then this can add extra thickening or grooming and help you go longer between tints.
I have this in the lighter shade and I love that it grooms and tints brows without making them look they have mascara glopped all over them. It looks very natural. Lasting time could be better, but it is not bad. Great at covering grey brow hairs. One pet peeve -- the silver coating on the wand handle peels and flakes and big chunks of silver get on your hands.
So far, i`m really liking this stuff. I purchased the nude which is basically clear. Once you figure out how to apply it for the particular brow shape you are trying to achieve, you don`t even have to use a mirror- just a couple swipes on each brow ( wait a minute to let it dry before second coat) and out the house you go. It doesn`t leave your brow hairs crispy/crunchy like others i`ve tried, but does keep them in place for the entire day. Also, it doesn`t smell like a harsh chemical, which is always a plus. The price is what bothers me- 23 dollars for a small tube that seems like it may not last very long. There are probably other, similar clear brow gels out there that work just as well for half the price, or maybe a clear mascara, so i`m going to keep my eye out for an alternative. I don`t think a clear gel alone is going to do much for sparse brows, but if you have medium thick, already shaped brows, this one works quite well.
I'd used MUFE's brow gel in 0 and 4 mixed to get the correct color and applied with an angled brush for the last year or so and was content. I didn't want to go through the hassle of all that while traveling, so I packed a sample of the Perfekt brow gel I'd gotten from Sephora a month or so before. I got home and never stopped using it. Love that it's not reddish or too dark. My eyebrows fell out during an illness and never quite filled back in, so I need to fill in holes, this does a great job. I use UDPP before applying and set it with a dark brown eyeshadow and don't have any problems with it lasting all day. Just picked up the full size, will pick up a backup.
When I first got this, I said, "what the heck is this?". It looks like brown mascara. So, I held off using it. Two weeks later, I tried it and I don't know how to it so it got all over my brows. Yuk! Practice makes Perfekt! The first time I tried it, it took me almost three minutes to put it on. Today, it's two swipes on each brow and I'm done!
I don't know if I can go back to the pan or pencil brow fillers. Yes, I have a backup. I'm scared of runnning out. It's so easy to use and perfect all the time since.
I have very fair skin and very sparse, blonde eyebrows. Finding a good color that looks natural but still defining is hard. The champagne shade of Per-fekt's brow gel fits the bill for me. It's pretty light and maybe a bit hard to see at night, but for day just right--not too ashy or red, but a good true golden blonde color with a small amount of subtle shimmer. The caramel color looked more like a medium or dark brown on me, though I think on someone with darker skin it would read more true. If you are fair blonde, champagne is probably the right shade for you. Very similar to Anastasia tinted brow gel in blonde. Anastasia's caramel is much lighter than Per-fekt's, so it's better for night. This doesn't have major lasting power on me, but it blends easily with a spooly brush. Not water resistant or proof. Makes clean up easy but not for swimming. Too expensive but it's hard to find a good blonde brow color, so I'll buy again. Nice texture, light, easy to feather through brow, doesn't clump. Brush size okay, but a tad smaller might be nice.
I got this as a test tube the first time in the caramel color. The tube was small and the brush was small so i really like the consistency, color etc. I bought the bigger size and returned it because the brush was SOOOO big for eyebrow. Good product if the brush was smaller
