In last month’s LF Beauty Box I received this Pixi by Petra Clear Brow Tamer. As some of you might know I absolutely love the brand Pixi, so I was super excited to find this inside the box. I know brow gel is quite a boring product, but in my opinion it’s essential for the perfect brow look. Therefore I thought it might be fun to review it on my blog today. So, if you’re interested in finding out what this brow gel is like, make sure you continue reading!
First things first, the packaging. This Brow Tamer comes in a classic Pixi packaging. The tube is clear and has bronzy/gold letters on it and the lid is pastel green, the typical Pixi colour. I really like the look of this packaging. It’s very simple and clean, but it represents the brand really well and it’s just not ugly.
The bottle is quite small which makes it a great product for on the go. Even though it’s small, it still comes with quite a lot of product: 4.5 ml to be exact. That’s not bad at all!
Brow gel comes in many shapes and forms. Roughly you have two different kinds: tinted gels and clear gels. I used to love tinted brow gels because they are just a little bit better at giving your brows that finishing touch they need. However, now that I’ve been using a different brow pencil I quite like using clear gels, just because it’s slightly less harsh.
Another pro when it comes to this gel being clear is that it’s usable for everyone, no matter what colour your hair is. To me that’s quite ideal. But it’s obviously totally up to you what you prefer using most!
The brow gel comes with a nice mascara-like applicator. It’s a little wand with synthetic hairs. I really like the way it works. I like that it isn’t too big but also not incredibly small. It’s very quick to work with and I hardly ever go wrong with this. This wand gives me exactly the right amount of control and that’s what makes it so perfect.
Another thing I really like about this brow gel is that it doesn’t just pack it on. Some brow gels are just very intense. Your brows will be loaded with product in a matter or seconds and that will result in very harsh and slightly greasy looking brows. I just don’t like the look of that. This one ins’t like that. It applies the right amount of product to your brows. They will stay in place, but they won’t end up looking crazy.
When it comes to keeping my brows in place all day I have to say this little guy impressed me. Not every brow gel is capable of keeping my crazy hairs in place, but this one is. From the outside it doesn’t look like the most impressive or amazing brow gel in the world. But in fact it actually is pretty amazing. Great job Pixi!
Overall I’m impressed by this brow gel, or Brow Tamer, as Pixi likes to call it. It looks very simple and basic, but it works really, really well for me. I like that it’s clear, I like how easy it is to work with and I like that it does what it’s supposed to do and nothing else. To me this is a great product and I’d recommend giving it a try if you’re on the hunt for a great brow gel!
The Pixi By Petra Clear Brow Tamer is available at Lookfantastic for €14,95.
That was it for today’s review. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know which product you use to keep your brows in place all day!
