It feels as if every beauty brand is launching clear brow gels right now, especially brow gels which are said to emulate brow lamination. The Sleek MakeUP Brow Laminate Brow Gel launched a few months ago, and I decided to give it a try, as I was curious whether it did in fact give a brow lamination type effect to the brows.
Sleek MakeUP Brow Laminate Brow Gel
Brow Lamination is a brow treatment, which creates shiny, smooth brows and is sometimes called an eyebrow perm. There’s no colouring involved, but chemicals are used on the brows in order to create the smoothed, glossy look. It also helps to make the brows look fuller, and it lasts for around 4-6 weeks.
Due to the global crisis, many people haven’t been able to go to beauty salons to get their usual beauty treatments, so brands have jumped on the brow laminate effect bandwagon with clear brow gels, and the Sleek MakeUP Brow Laminate Brow Gel is one of many new clear brow gels which have launched in the last few months.
The Sleek MakeUP Brow Laminate Brow Gel is described as the following;
“Are you ready to raise some brows with our Brow Laminate?
This clear hemp seed oil infused gel instantly shapes and conditions in one sweep, for up to 18 hours of maximum hold.”
The Sleek MakeUP Brow Laminate Brow Gel is £5.49, and contains 5ml of product within a matte black plastic tube with a small, tapered, natural bristled brush. The directions are super simple, you just comb the gel through your brows to set the hairs in place.
Having tried a lot of brow gels, I find the Sleek MakeUP Brow Laminate Brow Gel to be a good, clear brow gel which does a good job at setting the brows all day, but it definitely doesn’t give a brow lamination effect.
To be honest, tube brow gels aren’t going to give you the same effect, but a product like the ABH Brow Freeze is much more likely, as it gives the same high-shine, locked down look for your brows. If you’re after a budget friendly clear brow gel, the Sleek MakeUP Brow Laminate Brow Gel is a good brow gel, but if you really want a brow lamination effect, this brow gel isn’t going to give you that look.
