  • "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

Have been using this product for about a month now and I have to say that I love how it doesn’t dry and give me white flicks throughout the day. It’s leave my eyebrows perfect all day. I have recommended this product to my friends and family.

Not bad not bad at all. Bought this when I was in target the other day and wanted to give it a try. For the price it’s not bad at all. I usually use Anastasia Beverly Hills but this is worth for an everyday use.

I usually love NYX products so I was excited to try this! Holds for about 2 hours, and wears off after that. Makes my eyebrows feel like they have some glue on them, which feels weird when I move my face.

I do not like this gel at all. Sure it holds your brows in place, but it also flakes absolutely everywhere. It is a nightmare. It makes you look like you have horrible eyebrow dandruff. Not a good look.

Picked this up on a whim at Target and am so incredibly glad I did! Plus it's relativity cheap at only $6.00.

My eyebrows like to point in all directions as the day progresses... Not with this stuff! They stay in place all day without being crunchy or stiff.

Love how easy it is to glide on. Appreciate that it's clear so it doesn't affect my brow color. It does not make my brows sticky or shiny either.

In order to not get too much product on, I dip the wand and then go up and down in the top opening a couple of times. Works like a charm!

Highly recommend! :) Pairs great with the NYX Micro Brow Pencil.

An eyebrow gel is just simply meant to keep the hairs in place and keep the product on longer and this one does just that. It doesn’t weigh down the hairs or make the crunchy either which is nice.

The price is right, and it holds my brows in place. I do find that it makes them a litttttle bit crunchy, but that feeling fades pretty quickly. You get a good amount if product, and the application is easy.

Absolutely love this brow gel, it's my favorite of all time. If you have thick brows, this is a must. You can perfectly comb them into place, and they will stay put all day. I reach for this even when I'm having a "no makeup" day.

I have eyebrows hairs that are all over the place, this product really hold them in place for hours! There isn't any residue left behind or smell, and they still feel lile my brows and aren't stiff

Love this product for my thicker eye brows because it keeps them in place and makes them look thicker without any other product but the product bu led up weird and can leave chunks that make it look like you have eyebrow dandruff.

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?
