|Review| per-fékt lash perfection gel

I have never been more disappointed in a beauty product more than in per-fékt lash perfection gel , which I purchased online from Sephora Malaysia website.Wait, maybe it’s Sephora MY is to be blamed because as I was browsing for this particular product, this is how they describe per-fékt beauty mini lash perfection gel:

This ultra modern formulation glides on effortlessly to strengthen, lengthen, darken, condition, prime and per-fekt lashes. Smudge-resistant and clump-free, lash perfection gel provides natural, buildable coverage and leaves the lashes looking luscious.

Can’t find the word ‘mascara‘ in the description? Neither can I. So what is the problem here? I’d say, the description itself is misleading, especially when the product’s packaging also forgot to bear the word ‘mascara’ on it, which further misleads customers into thinking that this ‘gel’ is a lash care rather than a cosmetic product.

Now, compare that description with the ones from Sephora US website as well as the official website; perfektbeauty.com :

What it is: 
A jellified primer, mascara, conditioner, and enhancer that gives the lashes extreme length and definition. -Sephora 

What is it?
Lash perfection gel is a silky smooth mascara that conditions, defines and lengthens lashes. -perfektbeauty.com

Sigh….partly I myself am to blamed for not doing a through research prior to buying this mascara. But then again, I got the SEPHORA RM30 Birthday Promo voucher to be spend in a busy December, so c’mon Sephora! 

Now that’s a lesson learned there, let’s get straight to the product. For RM39, I feel that it’s a decently affordable mascara. Physically it may look tiny but the amount of product is 7ml (.25 FL.OZ.). It comes in two sizes; mini (7ml) and full-sized (13ml). There are three shades available which are blu, flash and flash deluxe. Mine is flash which is their fancy name for black. 

In ‘flash’ ; which is just basic black

As a mascara, I’m pretty much satisfied with how well it separates, curls and darkens my lashes after just one coat. (Go on to a second coat and your lashes won’t be as curled so don’t bother.) The product stays on for hours even during a hot day. The only downside is the shortness of the wand; which is pretty standard for mini or deluxe-sized mascaras. However I’m pretty sure the full-sized one doesn’t have this problem. 

However, as a ‘primer’, like how this brand claims it to be, I don’t see nor feel any improvement on my eyelashes after three weeks of using it. Clearly, this is not a lash primer nor it is a lash serum. Just a delusional non-waterproof mascara who blows its own horn.
