I’m rather particular about my eyebrows. Even when I’m in a rush to get out of the house and throw my personal “minimal amount of makeup” onto my face, I almost always do my brows (along with some tinted moisturizer and mascara). I feel like a few small swipes of brow product instantly transforms me from disheveled to darling.
Part of my obsession probably stems from the fact that I have super dark, super full brows…and may have gotten teased about having a unibrow as a middle schooler, which I later overcompensated for by going tweezer-crazy. Thankfully, brow products, like the Salon Perfect Perfect Brow Pomade, are now all the rage – I don’t have to be blessed with naturally perfect brows, I can just look like I am!
I personally like my brow products to not be limited edition products, inexpensive and readily available – while they’re a staple in my makeup bag, I’d rather spend money on fun and colorful products. Salon Perfect fits the bill!
While I hadn’t heard of Salon Perfect prior to testing out their Perfect Brow Pomade, they’re a brand that’s been around for over 20 years, specializing in brow and lash products.
I was excited to test out Salon Perfect’s Perfect Brow Pomade because it’s less than $5 and at your local Walmart and available soon at Walmart.com
You’ll find it in three shades: Blonde, Light Brown, and Dark Brown.
Their Brow Pomade helps fill in brows, shape them, and also holds them in place – it’s an all in one product, no need for separate pencils, powders, or wax. It even comes with a dual ended angled brush and spoolie brush!
The pomade itself comes in a small pot with a twist off lid. The product is quite soft and pigmented – I had to be very careful not to get too much product on the brush.
After a little practice, I found that gently pressing the brush into the pomade and then wiping off the excess on the edge of the jar gave me a nearly perfect amount of product.
A before and after with the Blonde Pomade…
The brush does a nice job of applying the pomade smoothly and easily, and the spoolie side is perfect for smoothing things out. I love that this combo gave my brows that perfectly defined look. Even after a long day at work, and a sweaty workout, it does a nice job staying in place.
How does Salon Perfect compare to the other similar brow pomade-type products? MAC’s Stylish Brow Fluidline Brow Gelcremes, which I have personally reviewed for wht, are similar in pigmentation, but are more expensive, and don’t include a brush.
I’ve also heard that these are comparable to Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow but since I haven’t tried that product I can’t compare them, but I have heard that they’re a decent substitute
By the way, if you’re ever in a rush, this Brow Pomade also works nicely an eyeliner! Check it out in above photo.
Overall, I would definitely say that the Salon Perfect Brow Pomade and brush is a killer deal for less than $5. It requires a bit of practice, but it’s worth it.
