I hope you're all well?
Unfortunately, unlike many, I wasn't blessed with thick, shapely brows which could be entered into a 'brows on fleek' contest. No - I was cursed with sparse, messy brows which are in constant need of attention (and brow products). I was recently contacted by Lucy to ask whether I'd be interested in trying out BPerfect's new semi-permanent eyebrow make-up kit. I decided to go for it since I'm always on the hunt for that 'perfect brow product' to sort them out.
The eyebrow make-up kit comes in at £24.99 and with this you receive a brow powder, a choice of three brow stencils (thick, natural and thin) and a double ended brow brush for application. There are a choice of four shades to choose from; Brown, Dark Brown, Irid Brown and Charcoal. Based on the descriptions on their website, I opted for Dark Brown.
The product arrived very sweetly packaged in a lovely little bag and I was very excited to try the product out.
The product itself comes with some handy instructions to get you started. You simply pick a stencil out which suits your brow best (I went for the natural one) and you hold it up against your brow (I combed through mine just to tidy them up a bit beforehand). You swirl the fluffy side of the brush into your powder and simply colour in the stencil until you're happy. When you remove the stencil from your brows you should have eyebrows that resemble the stencil shape you opted for. If you feel the need to touch up on certain areas of the brow, the angled end of your brush comes in really handy!

The product does take an attempt or two to get perfect but once you're used to getting the brow placements correct, this really is a brilliant product! I've found I can now spend so much less time trying to create a 'perfect brow' and I can now focus on other problem areas (winged liner - anyone??). I've also found since using this product, my brows look much softer and more natural. I didn't realise before but the way I was filling in my brows was far too harsh in comparison. The fluffy brush I now use thanks to this product has really changed that for me.
Above is the BPerfect brow powder in 'Dark Brown' which I was sent.
The only bad thing I'd say about this product is that the colour choice was unfortunately not for me. Admittedly, I did choose this colour based on the description but I felt an actual photograph of the product colours could have been more useful than a description. I did trial the powder (pictured above) out and it did last all day (in the rain as well) but unfortunately it's far too light for me against my dark Red hair. I've been using another brow product more suited to my colour with the stencils and brush and have found I get on a bit more with this shade instead. For £24.99, I want to ensure that the colour match is as accurate as possible. I shall however, continue to use the brow stencils and brush as I feel these are both great at creating an effortless and quick brow! I've been using the two products everyday since receiving them.
