  • "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

Awesome! This eyebrow gel keeps my brows in place all day and doesn’t make them crunchy or look like they have product in them! Lasts a while and super affordable! Would recommend for sure to anyone!!!

I really wanted this stuff to be great for the price, but it is just ok. Kind of peels off like glue if you get on your skin. Definitely holds brows in place if you are ok with the other issues!

This is my everyday gel because I like quick, natural brows. It holds all the hairs in place all day, no matter the weather. I feel like the applicator may be a little larger than necessary but I've never had any problem with flakiness.

An absolute must for my eyebrow routine! It forces the hairs into place, and they don’t budge for the rest of the day. Great for a natural brow look

Purchased this product from Ulta and it has become a product that I use daily! I love that I can use it with or without filling in my prows. Keeps them in place.

I like this stuff!  IT is the first eyebrow gel I've ever used so I also have nothing to compare it to but I like that although it keeps my brows in place I never feel like theyre super stiff or anything where they can't move at all. It's clear so can be used on all eyebrow shades.

This keeps my brows in place all day without being flakey!!! I’ve bought this in place of a Benefit one and the packaging is simple but nice. I’ve been using this for a few months now and I would highly recommend this!

This stuff is amazing! Keeps my brows in place all day! It’s a great price point and does the same thing as the more expensive Sephora brand. I don’t think this brand gets enough credit for their products!

I use this everyday. But to be honest, I brush it through my brows so I can see where to place the brow pencil but after that I can't even tell I put a gel in at all. It doesn't thicken or hold very long at all.

I bounce back and forth between this eyebrow gel and my ABH brow gel. This gel holds SUPER WELL. Sometimes I don’t wear brow product and just apply this for no makeup days and my brows look very natural but groomed!

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?

Does this eyebrow gel ever flake up? I've used an eyebrow gel before that gave my brows some weird white flakes
