On GLAMOUR Tries this week, our Social Media Assistant Luca Wetherby-Matthews put THE eyebrow product of the second to the take a look at. We are, after all, speaking concerning the REFY Brow Collection – as created by influencer Jess Hunt (who simply so occurs to have a really robust eyebrow recreation herself).
The kit – which is made up of an eyebrow pencil, a pomade and a forehead sculpting gel – bought out inside minutes after the primary launch, and it has been cropping up in workforce GLAMOUR’s Instagram feeds ever since. The kits are vegan and cruelty-free, accessible in three shades (mild, medium and darkish) and housed in fully-recyclable packaging. But as with all influencer magnificence launch, we had been eager to seek out out whether or not REFY is de facto worthy of the hype.
“[REFY] was started by Jess Hunt who is the master of the fluffy brow, so hopefully, these will help us get her brow look,” mentioned Luca as she unboxed the merchandise for the primary time.
“Starting with the brow sculpt, you’re going to run this through your brows and fully coat them. This is what’s going to stick them in place,” Luca mentioned.
“What I love about this whole kit is that it’s so multi-functional. You twist to get the actual sculpt and then you take the lid off and it has this comb and brush. So you want to shape them with the comb and get them into the position that you want them in – this is your chance to go super, super fluffy – and then take the brush to flatten them down. Once the brows are flattened they will not be shifting for love nor money. They are on there now.”
Then you wish to take the pomade – once more, one finish is the comb and the pomade product is discovered on the different finish. So cool!
“I’m actually using medium because I don’t want to go too crazy,” Luca mentioned. “Take some on the brush and then just fill in the sparse areas.”
“Now they’re all filled in, you’re going to take the brow pencil (I’m using the dark one just to add a bit more definition and depth with the medium pomade). You’re going to take the brow pencil end and just add hair-like strokes wherever you want for a bit more definition on your brow. And then once you’re happy, the final step: the brush on the other end. Brush everything through and this is just going to bring everything together for a more cohesive brow.”
“I absolutely love the REFY products,” Luca mentioned. “They are just so easy; so quick and they just give me the perfect brow that I always have wanted. They also sell out really quickly and they’ve just done a restock, so if you want some fluffy brows, you’d better go.”
