Summer is all about a pop of color and being a lipstick junkee that I am, I usually neglect the power of a well-defined set of brows. 95% of the time, I don't wear eye shadow because, well, that's just not me. However, I've been discovering that you can make your eyes noticeable with some few strokes away.

Most of my recent purchases came from this brand. SLEEK is common on all beauty stores in the UK. If there's one thing that this brand is well-known for, it is that their products are PIGMENTED. As in PIGMENTED, people! I've bought this beauty from Superdrug for £4.99 (Php 350-ish) and here's some info from their site:

This highly-pigmented brow gel fills and shapes brows providing a long-lasting finish. The lightweight, smudge–free formula seals brows in place and brushes on easily for a thicker, natural-looking finish.
  • Great for giving brows definition and taming strays without leaving a stiff looking result
  • The brush combs through every hair for an even finish and will not streak, clump or flake
  • It is also perfectly portable for on-the-go touch-ups anytime

Extra: I got the Light Brown (041) shade and I'm using MAC Ruby Woo below.

Let's start with the packaging. It's super tiny and cute. Yea, I'm a sucker for matte and sophisticated cases, so that's a plus for me. Another is its pigmentation. You literally need one dip and that that's it. No retouch needed, trust me! 

TIP: Product can be too overpowering if you're a beginner. Be careful not to put in too much and remember to go as light as possible (in terms of application). You want to make the brows appear as natural as possible. In case you've overdone it (oops!), not to worry. Get a q-tip (cotton bud), dip it on your fave makeup remover and ever-so-lightly pat the area. Problem solved!

Colour selection is too few. This is the lightest shade and unfortunately it doesn't suit my hair colour quite well :( It's darker than I thought it was. Substance hardens my brow hair too. Some bloggers like it, but uhm, I'm not a huge fan of any glued situation, so that's a nay for me. 

Let's talk point-blank: I will not repurchase. I mean, there are so many products SLEEK is famous for, like their contour sets and matte glosses. However, brow perfector is not one of those. It's not an awful product to be fair, but after finishing this tube, I reckon there are other better things worth trying. This is funny, but I remember one of my closest buds said this:  

"Sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs to find a prince." 

Tee hee. Take it easy, guys! -CMK
