  • "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

So good and cheap! It keeps your eyebrows tamed all day long. It provides a firm hold, but doesn't make your eyebrows feel too heavy. The only issue that I have is that it sometimes takes product off of my eyebrows.

Buy this!! Don't spend $20+ dollars on eyebrow gels, when you can buy this one which is even better than high end ones. I used to use the Benefit clear eyebrow gel and found that it smeared my eyebrow products underneath. I then tried this option and found that it holds my brows in place and gives them a fuller, more natural look while not messing up the product underneath.

This is the best brow gel! It really holds my brows in place, which is impressive because they have a mind of their own. The gel is clear, which may bother some people,but I don't mind. The brush is large, so people with thin brows might not like it.

I like this product. The gel is clear and it holds pretty well without sticking my brows to make skin or making them crunchy. I do wish the brush was a little smaller to make it easier to get the brow hairs right where I want them, but I do recommend this for people with slightly unruly brows.

I put off buying this because I didn't think it would be any different than any of the other eyebrow gels/mascaras that I was using. I was wrong! I use this every day. I love the formula, It keeps hairs set in place all day. I have already repurchased this, and will continue to going forward.

Excellent clear gel, leaves your eyebrows in place all day long. Do not touch them or rub them during the day though, I know it sounds like a no brainer but I did have the tendency to touch my eyebrows and then I would inadvertently start removing the product... small white particles of product would start forming through the hairs, making my eyebrows look weird and dirty.
These days I make a conscious effort to leave them alone during the day and no problems whatsoever!

After filling in my eyebrows I love applying this gel to make them stay in place. This gel is even great without filling in your brows. I love this product and would recommend for anyone with unruly eyebrows.

This is inexpensive, isn't clumpy or thick, and keeps my long and thick brow hairs in place! Although if you have a brow powder or pencil on your brows before using this, it may cause the color to smear a bit.

I used to use essence which was a cheap brand and it work okay. I always use NYX but I never used this product. I bought this at Ulta and it was a great purchase! I recommend this brow gel because it keeps you brows in place and lasting all day! I live in a hot region and when it's hot and sweaty this product keeps my brows there!

Love this brow gel, definitely holds my brows in place. (And love the price, too! $6 at my local ULTA.) You do have to be careful not to get the gel anywhere BUT the brow or you could cause your brow to smudge a bit considering the product applies wet, but as soon as it dries you're all set!

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?
