Per-fekt: Tried and True
Chances are, in the past you've spent a pretty penny on an item and had great expectations. With every purchase of a shiny pink lipstick or a lash lengthening mascara, the possibility of being prettier versions of ourselves is promised. Few products can provide the results they boast.
So when I tested this new product, Per-fekt, you can imagine my surprise when it surpassed my expectations.
The gel is a miracle in a bottle, I am not exaggerating. Created by Richard Anderson, a 14 year veteran of the beauty industry, Per-fekt is an "antioxidant enriched primer/sheer foundation/ color corrector/ skin perfecting gel." It also contains Alpha Lipoic Acid, making it an anti-aging product as well.
The makeup artist for the film Dreamgirls used this very product on the stars of the movie. Celebs like Heather Locklear, Kelly Ripa, Paris and Kathy Hilton and Daisy Fuentes are reported fans. Aside from makeup artists and high profile personalities loving it, I do too.
The consistancy of this gel formula is not unlike mousse. When you apply it to your face, it slides over your skin like oil but it is not the least bit oily, sticky, or slick. You could say it glides over your face like silk, smoothing and hiding imperfections. The color is so sheer and flattering that I find I do not need to use additional foundation. I love the look of fresh, clean skin- not skin hiding behind a heavy mask of thick makeup.
Per-fekt has no fragrance, is non- irritating and washes off easily with cleanser and water. I don't need to keep applying it throughout the day because it has great staying power. I keep making the mistake of using too much, a little goes a long way! A small dot in your hand or on a cosmetic sponge will cover your whole face. You don't want to waste this precious gel.
Per-fekt comes in five colors and is sold at Kitson in Los Angeles, Nordstrom and Sephora. At $57.50, this product may be pushing your budget but what I am discovering as I review beauty products is that certain essentials are worth the cost. I'll let you know when it's worth it to spend a little extra- and this product is worth its weight in gold. In 2007, Per-fekt will be coming out with three new product categories for Body, Lips and Eyes. I can't wait!
