Last week I attended The Makeup Show in Orlando, FL and came across Ofra Cosmetics. To be quite honest I’ve never used any of their products before but on product stuck out and I just had to try it out for myself. Ofra has semi-permanent waterproof eyebrow gel which come in five colors; auburn, charcoal, dark brown, light brown and khaki. If you were at the show and were able to buy all five colors at $25 you got yourself an amazing deal considering that each color sells for $24.95 each.
The texture I would describe it something like a gel eyeliner but a bit creamier as you can see from the picture above. With this product a little does go a long way so please try not to use too much of the product at once. I was testing it out on my hand before applying it onto my eyebrows and I noticed if too much product is added at once, it’ll take a few minutes for it to dry completely instead of instantly. If you love to to to highlight your eyebrows or feel the need to clean up around your eyebrows because you made a mistake, you can do so before it dries. Nothing that a little foundation or concealer can’t help to clean up and make your eyebrows standout.
Here is a picture of me at 8am with some simple makeup applied and my eye brows filled in. I was able to layer the color a little more intense. The color that I used on my eyebrows is light brown. This color does have a slight reddish undertone.
This picture was taken at 1am later that day. As you can see my forehead is a little oily, the product did fade a little but is still in tact.
This last pictures was taken the next day at 10 am when I woke up. I did remove all of my makeup just left my eyebrows on to see what would happen if I slept in with it on. To my surprise it was still on! Of course as you can see it did fade some more but I still have eyebrows on! Good thing is that it did not transfer onto my pillow case.
I used this product for a week to see how I would like it and I have to say I’ve fallen in love with it. If you’re a professional makeup artist you need these babies in your kit. If you’re a consumer I’d say to go out and buy it as well you’ll fall in love. If you love the idea of your eyebrows lasting all day without the hassle of retouching, this is it.
