For some, taming your brows with just an eyebrow brush does not work. This is why eyebrow gel is such a God send. It helps to define and control those unruly brows. Eyebrow gels come in very similar packaging to that of mascara, and usually have the same type of wand.
There are two types of brow gels: clear and tinted. The clear gel is great if you are just looking to tame your brows. The tinted gel is for when you are looking to tame and enhance light brows. As a side note, yor can use clear brow gels over your favorite eyebrow pencil or powder.
Personally, I prefer to use clear gels over my eyebrow pencil. I feel I can get better color with a pencil than with a tinted brow gel. Here are the three clear gels I am loving now:
- ELF CLEAR BROW & LASH MASCARA – This brow gel is inexpensive and works with any hair color. I have not tried using it as a mascara, so I can only speak to the product as a brow gel. I have fairly long brow hair and this will literally hold my brows in place all day. The gel will work over your favorite eyebrow pencil or powder. It is cruelty free and vegan, which is a great plus for me. ELF retails for $2.00 and available at www.elfcosmetics.com, ULTA and most drugstores.
- NYX CONTROL FREAK EYEBROW GEL – This eyebrow gel will get those unruly eyebrows under control quickly. Like ELF, it will work over your favorite eyebrow pencil and powder. This affordable brow gel is unique in that it is very easy to apply. It is not super sticky, and it is comfortable to wear all day. When I wore this eyebrow gel it kept my brows in place and did not have a hard feeling after it dried. NYX Control Freak Eyebrow Gel retails for $5.99 and available at www.nyxcosmetics.com, ULTA and Target.
- ESSENCE LASH & BROW GEL MASCARA – Just like the two above, this lash and brow gel tames those unruly eyebrows, and gets them back into shape. It is great for some slight enhancement without all the color. The wand for this product is thinner than its counterparts. There were some complaints where the product made people’s eyebrows look wet. I did not have this experience. Essence Lash & Brow Gel Mascara goes on easy, works well and priced reasonably. Overall, it is a good brow gel. Again, I cannot comment on the product as a mascara, since I did not use it in that capacity. The Essence Lash & Brow Gel Mascara retails for $2.99 and available at ULTA and Target.
These are my go to clear brow gels. I personally have not had any problems using these products and would recommend them to a friend. They are all reasonably priced, and will tame your brows without look hard or feeling sticky.
What is your favorite brow clear gel and why?
