  • "My eyebrows are light in color, very thin and are hard to manage. This made it easy, the gel is clear, so I use a powder to add a little color and correct then after I use the clear gel and they stay perfect all day. The price is also a plus." in 49 reviews
  • "Brought this product to see how they would compare to the Anastasia Beverly Hills line. And can I tell you I am SOOOOO pleased. I have very thick eyebrows and I'm funny about them looking too "done" and too wild. Happy that I took the chance and purchased this product. Keep it up NYX!" in 22 reviews

Love it!!! It keeps my eyebrows in place... I like full brows and this gel doesn’t make me look crazy. As like any NYX product, it’s very affordable and it’s a must have. I definitely recommend for newbies in the makeup game.

I had used this stuff for years because it was a really good dupe for Anastasia of Beverly Hills. It sets the brows well and isn’t sticky. Goes well over brow powder application and helps set the brows. Solid product!

This is just clear eyebrow gel. It works really well & holds the brows in place. It is affordable and would be worth trying out to help keep your brows manicured. This is a good affordable replacement for ABH’s eyebrow gel. I do recommend this product.

Yes, I’m an eyebrow freak and when you’ve spent as much time as I do trying to perfect your brows, you want them to stay in place. I call this product my “eyebrow hairspray gel” which it basically is and I love it.

I cannot say this enough this is absolutely one of my favorite products to use. I recommend this to any and everybody all shapes of eyebrows. You will not regret this I can’t stress this enough that you will not regret this purchase. I can compare this to Anastasia Beverly Hills. I can compare this to the essence brand I can compare this to the elf brand and I cannot stress that this product is 100% approved by me 1 million times over I absolutely love this product so much. I will keep purchasing this and I absolutely have two or three backups of this product because I love this so much. I wish next made a tinted eyebrow gel. Like this tho. This is better than any product that I have ever used in my life for my eyebrows I will not spend a ton of money on the Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow setting gel I once spent about $40 on that. I don’t care for the elf one either that tends to clump up too much. But, this product is just the perfect consistency and it’s very buildable and keeps your eyebrows stable and in shape where they need to be all day long!!!! ;))) Can be bought at Ulta! I have 3!! They’re only about 8$!! So worth it!!

Use this eyebrow gel literally everyday. When I'm in uniform I can't have too much makeup on so I just run the brush through my eyebrows and let the gel tame my eyebrow hairs then I'm good to go! Lasts all day and gets your eyebrows looking PERFECT!

I love how easy this product is! I have crazy eyebrows that never want to stay up! I liked how this was in a tube, usually I use a wax, but this was nice. Sometimes it would go on heavy and be kind of sticky. It would leave flakes sometimes also.

I used to use the ABH eyebrow gel, but found it made my brows kind of crunchy feeling. Not something I’m a fan of. I bought this one on a whim and wow! It keeps my brows in place all day without that sticky crunch! Will buy again!

This is the first brow gel I’ve tried so I don’t have much to compare it too. It’s a great everyday brow gel, even when I don’t fill in my brows. The applicator is a bit big, but it’s still easy to work with!

I was blessed with fairly full, dark brows that do not need much help (as long as I keep them groomed). This clear gel works great for me! Keeps them in place without making them crusty! I’ll even throw on some on no makeup days to keep my brows from going crazy. Great price point too!

I need a great eyebrow gel I love Anastasia but my wallet is already crying at the idea of spending 20 dollars on that. Is this comparable? Or is it weak? What's another good one if not this one?
