It's no secret, but we're big fans of REFY Beauty—especially REFY Brow—here at My Imperfect Life. Catch us outside—or anywhere, really—and we will be chatting someone's ear off about this brand. They have been all over social platforms and have captivated us all—which should come as no surprise, seeing as it focuses on the obsession of the decade, our eyebrows.
We know that the transformative powers eyebrows have—much like the best eyeliners—are a game-changer. After all, they can completely sculpt and change your face—there's a reason why "Lily Collins eyebrows" continues to be a top trending search term.

I tested the Refy Beauty brow kit and here's my verdict:
Yes, we know that are LOTS of products that trend all over social, so we are very familiar with the fact that some just don't meet our exacting beauty standards. They might be everywhere and get seriously blown-up, but what you really want to know is, are they really worth the hype?
I tested the REFY Beauty eyebrow kit to bring you everything you need to know; including whether it's actually worth it, before and after pictures, and details about the stock levels of all our favorite products.
To get you up to speed and for some backstory, here's a bit about my go-to brow look. I like 'em big. I like brushed-up, full and natural-looking arches. In my makeup bag, you would always count on something like a Glossier Boy Brow (one of our favorite 2022 beauty trends products) or Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel co-habiting—what can I say, I'm a total creature of habit.
What's in the REFY Beauty brow kit?
This kit contains everything you need to create the perfect brows. REFY's capsule line comprises three items, also known as the "3.0 stage process", as well as tweezers, all of which are available to shop online.
The products are:
- REFY Beauty Brow Sculpt (gel)
- REFY Beauty Brow Pomade
- REFY Beauty Brow Pencil
All three REFY products are dual-ended with a built-in grooming tool, and although the only information on each product is the brand name, it’s pretty easy to remember what does what. For reference, below is a picture of my brows before I got started.

The Refy Beauty Brow kit 3 step system explained:
Lucy's brows au natural:
Step 1: REFY Beauty Brow Sculpt
The Brow Sculpt is the first step, AKA the foundation/the most important part of the process. This step is all about sculpting. This clear-drying sculpting gel has a similar wand applicator to most good brow products. It's the most popular of the three as it constantly sells out. Thankfully, it's currently in stock (the eyebrow God's are looking in), but remember if it does sell you, you can most likely still purchase it as part of the brow kits.
Inside the actual lid (a very satisfying pull instead of twisting open, just FYI) you'll also find a 2-in-1 brush and comb to help distribute the product evenly—just make sure you brush through before the gel has dried to avoid any potential disasters. Applied on its own the effect is similar to brow lamination, of which I am a big fan.
Step 2: Refy Beauty Brow Pomade
Top marks for part Deux. There's no need to fish around in your make-up bag for two separate items, as your pot of pomade sits at the opposite end of your angled brush. (Bravo for saving us space, Jess.)
Word to the wise, the color is very rich, so you don't need to use a lot of the pomade to fill in any gaps or sparse areas of your brows. A tiny dab is plenty—remember, it's always easier to add more and build than take away.
Step 3: REFY Beauty Brow Pencil
The last step in the 3.0 regime is a skinny pencil that's perfect for finishing off your brows. The pencil is just what you need to add tiny hair-like strokes or to define your brows. And at the other end of your pencil, you'll find a lidded spoolie to comb through your brows when you've finished applying.
Lucy's brows after the 3.0 brow process:
The best thing about the REFY Beauty Brow Kit is that you don’t have to use all three products at once. The beauty of this collection is in the levels of customization it allows. They allow you to create anything from natural-looking arches to a very defined, filled-in InstaBrow™ depending on your mood, how you're feeling that day and how many meetings you need to boss.
Overall, it's safe to say I'm wowed by REFY's results and, at around $55 / £40 for three different products, the bundle is very good value—and way cheaper than treatments like microshading. It's safe to say, the trio has definitely found a new home in my make-up bag.

Is social media changing our opinions towards fast fashion?
Thrifting is everywhere on social media right now but is it actually changing our opinions on buying second-hand or is it just a fad?
