Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eye brow Gel This product dried and peeled off of my eye brows. Had to brush pretty much all of it out of my brows.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dries up flakey I’ve used their brown eyebrow brushes before and loved them. But this one is just really bad... Whenever I use it I always get comments like: oh there’s something on your eyebrow. And that’s just the eyebrow gel dried up. So I would not recommend it because it’s too flakey

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OBSESSED! This product keeps my eyebrows in place! Mine tend to go everywhere and I’m obsessed with this product
Date published: 2019-08-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's great for me I'm surprised at all the review saying it flakes. It's never flaked for me, and I've used it daily for at least 3 years or more. I like it. One tube last forever. Hard to find in stores, tho.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ugh So nasty. It looks like dandruff and doesnot work at all. Waste of money. Worst product ever
Date published: 2019-04-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for a natural look Excellent for a natural look if you want your eyebrows to stay in place without extra pigment
Date published: 2019-01-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works but.. It works really well it keeps my eyebrows in place and shaped how I like. My only complaint is that by the end of the day it does get flaky so I try to use as little as possible
Date published: 2018-11-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long lasting. I really like the product. I have only one complaint....the applicator handle cracked after just a short time and can't be tightened. However, I'll purchase it again. Also, this line of products is cruelty-free!!! Very important!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not really good i have tried this and for the first hour or bit longer it was okay, but a little later my eyebrows were covered in flakes, looks like dandruff, which ruins overall appearance
Date published: 2018-08-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Few hours hold I was in search for a brow gel so my mom got me this one about a month ago and I’ve been using it since then. What I’ve experienced is that it holds the ending half of my eyebrows but not the beginning, my eyebrow hair are a bit more thicker so I can understand. It held them in place for about 1-2 hours, after that, I’ve saw them lose their hold in areas, it started to flake in a white gray ish color so I had to clean my eyebrows and re-apply. I can’t find a clear eyebrow gel that does as decent of a job this one does so I’ll stick with it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great gel horrible packaging I really love this brow gel and have purchased it twice. The first time I bought it I noticed the cap was starting to crack then it eventually broke off entirely, and I thought maybe I had twisted it too tight but I was ok with it because I had basically used it all. I have since then repurchased the product and made sure to be super careful..... It was like two weeks this time when I noticed it was cracking again and now it has completely broke off again and I can't close it. Unfortunately I won't be purchasing it again and am on the hunt for a new clear brow gel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome it works!!! LETs just said that my eyebrows finally stay in place, I love how one morning aplícation is enough to leep them in place all day/night. Best investment
Date published: 2018-06-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Hold I bought this product about two months ago & it works good! The only downfall of it is that it’s not a super strong hold so your eyebrows will be all over the place by the end of the day.
Date published: 2018-03-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality Brow Gel! This product is really good.. it doesn't leave any kind of white clumps when it dries and you can apply as much as you desire. It lasts pretty much all day and doesn't leave any kind of uncomfortable feeling on the brows.
Date published: 2018-03-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I use this pretty much everyday with the NYX eyebrow angled pencil. The formula is very lightweight, not very sticky and thick like most so at first it feels like water being brushed through your eyebrows but you can feel and see it setting in and it creates this fuller look. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing tool! It’s great for keeping my brows in place! But it does cause a little eyebrow dandruff, if you rub your eyebrow.
Date published: 2018-02-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tames stray hairs and is a great clear mascara! I purchased this as a dual-purpose product: to tame stray eyebrow hairs and use as a clear mascara. It works nicely for both purposes, and I'd recommend it for each. It adds a nice glossy sheen to eyelashes and makes them appear slightly darker (great for those days when you want to look like you're not wearing makeup but still want a little sparkle). I wish the brush held slightly more product as it doesn't distribute it quite as generously to eyebrows as I'd like, but it's by a negligible amount and would not prevent me from purchasing again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product for a good price I like this product, I’ve tried other more expensive brow gels and ofc they have a stronger hold but I feel like this one gives a natural result but are not too strong hold! I like it!
Date published: 2018-01-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this I love this. It really holds your eyebrows in place without being super crunchy and hard. Also when you apply too much brow pencil/powder, this will brush it through to make it look not as harsh. So great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaves crusty/peeling residue I was so excited to try this when someone recommended it to me because it was a clear gel and I love NYX. The wand is great and the name of the product I have to say is very cute and clever. BUT.....this thing peels like crazy after a few hours. And this is with a very very thin coating. Like I'm talking miniscule coat of the gel and it still peels. I've tried to make this work but every time I've used it I get the same awful results. It definitely works and keeps your brow hairs in place and combs them nicely but after a few hours it looks like I rubbed Elmer's Glue on my eyebrows and have white gunk in my brows. It's embarrassing. And if you try to rub it off? Makes it worse. I would especially not recommend to those who have dark eyebrows, cause the dried gel shows up more. :/

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE This is an extremely horrible product , it flakes white.
Date published: 2017-12-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from it's a good product I don't use it much since my brows are pretty tamed. It lasts when I use it.
Date published: 2017-11-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyday use I LOVE this! I am always doubled stoked! Love the way it holds my brows in place! And the price is perfect too
Date published: 2017-11-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I could have tried it I've been a fan of nyx for years and was truly excited about trying this product. When I opened it, it was broken and the wand was stuck to the screw part. Disappointed I didn't get to see if I would love it or not.
Date published: 2017-09-30
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was so disappointed :( I have NEVER had anything bad to say about a NYX product but I'm sad to say this brow gel was SO flaky it sucked so bad my first time trying I went on a date & when I went to the restroom my eyebrows looked like they had dandruff all over them I was so embarrassed I wanted to cry I had to scratch the product off my eyebrows ! I can only expect maybe I got an old one or bad formula as pretty much all the reviews are so good for his product ! I just decided to rinse out the tube & use it for eyelash oils instead !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for setting brows but wand is a Little to big I bought this like 2 months ago and hate the wand so instead I take a much smaller spoolee brush thing I have take some product onto that and use it that way
Date published: 2017-08-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep put eye brow hairs! It does what it claims to do, plain and simple. It doesn't smudge my brow pencil and my hairs stay put all day.
Date published: 2017-07-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from real control freak! i have been using this on daily basis for the last month or so and i have been loving this product. i have thick eyebrow hair that i like to "glue" in the place for the day because they tend to get really crazy. the only con for me is that i need to reapply this product mid-day, but it is really easy to throw in my bag!
Date published: 2017-07-17
Rated 2 out of 5 by from just ok It controls my wacky eyebrows, but I have also been breaking out under my brows since I started using it. Therefore I stopped using it.
Date published: 2017-07-07
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Really works! but too much = flakes!!! I've had this product for about two or three months. I noticed after first use (by the end of the day) that it was starting to flake off - very similar to how Elmer's glue on your fingers gets tacky and rolls off. My sister suggested I use less because I can be heavy handed with my products. Now I do a quick swipe - there is SO much product on this brush! - and then shape with a dry spooly. Better, but not the best. I'd pass on this product.
