Raising an eyebrow can express an array of emotions, from admiration for a crush to frustration over studying in a strobe-lit library. Let eye accessories speak volumes with today's Groupon: for $150, you get $300 toward permanent makeup at Pigmenta Permanent Cosmetics, valid at its Boston, Newton, and Middleton locations.
Pigmenta Permanent Cosmetics' permanent makeup, applied by certified professionals' hands with gentle, precise techniques and hypoallergenic ion-oxide-based pigments, leaves visages looking effortlessly and naturally polished. The professionals can add thickness to the lash line with permanent eyeliner ($350 each for upper and lower lids), a 3-D effect to eyebrows ($550), an outline to the lips with liner ($550), or fullness to the entire kisser with full-lip color ($1,000). The makeup artists also camouflage scars ($500), erasing reminders of climbing a mountain blindfolded. Topical anesthesia minimizes any discomfort associated with the roughly one-hour procedure, and results can last anywhere from one to three years with proper care. Permanent makeup shortens ladies' morning beauty regimens, leaving ample time to eat scrambled eggs and discern eggs' intentions.
The staff at Pigmenta, Inc. believes that beauty should be effortless, which is why they've curated a selection of services designed to minimize time in front of the makeup mirror. Permanent makeup artist Julia enhances eyes and lips with hypoallergenic ion-oxide pigments custom-matched to the client’s skin-tone and cosmetic preference. Instead of relying on a machine or stencils, Julia performs the tattoo-like procedure by hand, allowing her to impart a soft, natural look and even mimic the look of individual eyebrow hairs. Meanwhile, lash specialists enhance flutterers with everything from semi-permanent extensions to lash dipping—a process that allows clients to ditch their mascara for up to six weeks. Pigmenta’s staff also invites customers to stop in for quick threading sessions, where sturdy lengths of thread allow aestheticians to swiftly remove excess hair from the face and brows or quickly sew it back on if the client changes their mind.
