We never get tired of trialling a viral beauty product – but it’s true that, more often than not, the ‘next best thing’ in make-up leaves us slightly underwhelmed. Hyperbole is rife in social media’s most beauty-obsessed corners, with an endless conveyor belt of concealers, mascaras and foundations being proclaimed a game-changer each day.
So, when we discover something truly deserving of its spotlight, we like to let you know – and boy have we found something worth snapping straight up. Refy’s Brow Sculpt may just be the brow product to end all brow products, and the entire ELLE team is obsessed.
You've likely seen Refy’s hyper-glossy social media presence before: the brand is the baby of influencer Jess Hunt, known for her precisely contoured, intensely glazed signature beauty look, which blends a pinch of Nineties nostalgia with today’s glass-skin aesthetic.
But, back to the main event, the Brow Sculpt. Categorising our new favourite product is tricky: it’s not quite a gel, nor is it a wax. The consistency is that of a creamy PVA glue, white in colour but transparent on application. Strong without being stiff, it creates that incredibly smooth, shiny lift that mimics the effects of a brow lamination treatment, and then stays there all day long: no flaking, falling or melting onto your eyelids.
There’s a double-ended comb and brush on the other end of the wand to help you lift your hairs into the ideal shape: we like to apply in vertical strokes before smoothing and setting with the brush, angling the tail of each brow down slightly to create a sleeker shape. The brand advises following up with the corresponding pomade and pencil, but unless you’re looking to fill in sparse patches, we don’t think you need to employ all three.
Getting the best results does require a degree of patience, though: the trick is all in the precise application. Go in too heavy, and you'll get dry flakes appearing on your brow hairs. It's also imperative to clean the brush after each use, as any build-up will again lead to flaking. But once you’ve mastered it, trust us: you’ll never look back at those pomades, waxes and gels again. This one’s well worth the fanfare.
