Though naturally neat and arched, my brows are too dark!
Too dark that they can never match my lightened hair colour.
For this reason, I have been on a hunt for a brow product that would do just that: lighten my brows to compliment my hair.
Over the years, I have tried and tested a number of eyebrow pencils, but not a single one can seem to satisfy me with the results I was looking for.
It is from my constant "re-searching" over the net, reading beauty blogs, that I stumbled upon the MAC Brow Set.
All the reviews that I came across seem to favour the product, so I thought why not give it a shot!
The MAC Brow Set in Girl Boy ended my searching game for the best brow product to temporarily lighten my brows.
It was love at first stroke, indeed! I instantly fell in love with the product as soon as I was able to try it on the MAC counter, and from then on, led its way to my makeup staples!
Thanks to this beauty, my eyebrows now perfectly compliment my golden-brown hair!
- The MAC brow set, true to its purpose, is able to define my brows giving it a bolder look, while tinting them lighter.
- The product makes my brows stay in place; never stiff, flaky or dry.
- The gel is very pigmented. Girl Boy's colour pay-off is amazing! The lightened brows make my face brighter and somewhat, tamer.
- It is long-lasting; the longest I have had it on my brows is for about 12 hours, and no fading was observed.
- It has a pleasant smell; great for the scent-conscious.
- The container holds a decent amount of product that could last for ages.
Additionally, the clear container is a good indicator of how much of the product is left.
- The wand picks up the right amount; never messy and nothing goes to waste, in my case.
- Can be worn solo or over filled-in brows, depending on how thick the brows are.
- There are 4 shades available ranging from clear to dark to light. There is one to compliment each hair colour changes.
I will definitely re-purchase the product over and over!
Thanks for reading my review!
I use the Velux Eye Pencil to line and define my brow and then the brow gel to set the style. Unfortunately, if you use the gel brush to apply, any eye pencil applied to your skin will come off. Luckily, one of your on-line consultants suggested using my finger to apply the gel and set my brows. That works better. Maybe this product should be packaged in a pot instead of a brush on.

I love the brow set in clear. It gives you that natural look to your eyebrows .

I have light blonde eyebrows. After applying my eyebrow powder to color, I use my MAC eyebrow set to lock in place and give hold.

Not what I thought it would be. Beginning at the arch and back of my eyebrows I have hairs that want to stick up. Thought this would control them. Doesn't seem to be working for me. May work for someone younger. Guess mine spent too many years doing what they wanted to

Holds my eyebrows in place and it's clear without turning white and flaking off.. Hard to find clear in other brands.

This product is a 2nd favorite to the Benefit clear brow gel. While the MAC does not have as much of a hold, I like the spoolie and the clear bottle to show how much product is left!
trixie from Ohio
I have nice eyebrows, but I'm getting some white hairs that are really hard to cover with pencil. Brow Set is the perfect answer. It covers the light areas perfectly and looks very natural. It also grooms and holds and stray hairs. I have reddish blonde hair and eyebrows are mixed light brown/blonde/gray. I purchased in Beguile and I love it.
Emmy from Holland
Easy to use and always a great result !! only downside is it gets dirty over time and because the packaging is see through you can see the gel looking all goopy. But the product still works amazing
SweetD from Visalia
I use it before I do my eyebrows sometimes after too . It's pricey for how fast it finishes

I had switched to Anastasia Beverley because for the longest there was not a MAC or MAC Counter near me and it was easy to just pick but THANK GOD, ULTA introduces the MAC Store in the location near me and me and my holy grail have been reunited for TRUE LOVE.

Favorite brow gel. Looks completely natural and keeps my brows in place all day.
Shaliza from Orlando
This was my first time using a brow gel and I was a little skeptical but I love how it sets my brows and they look great all day until I remove the product
Lena from Nacogdoches Texas
I have bushy eyebrows and this is the very best gel i have ever used and i have tried lots. Not too much not too little not goopy not sticky just simply perfect
AtlPeach from Atlanta
I was reluctant to try this product because it just seems strange that a gel can help your eyebrows stay put, but it absolutely does the job and exceeds my expectations! I have thin sparse eyebrows where the tail is suppose to be so I have to draw it on. Usually by noon, the tail has faded; however, when I use this product, not only is the tail still there at 8 or 9pm when I get home from work, but both of my eyebrows look exactly like they look when I sculpt them in the morning. I hope to never be out of this product. MAC, y'all are notorious for discontinuing or revamping the ingredients of products by claiming it's "new and improved." I beg of you, please DO NOT play games by changing or eliminating this product. Pretty Please!!! This stuff is super easy to use so if anyone is having an issue with it, it is a user error and not the product because I am by no means a make up expert, but my eyebrows are on fleek with this here.

Not too sticky or stiff, just enough to keep your brows in place
Liv from Fargo, North Dakota
I've been struggling for a very long time to find a long-lasting, brow gel that would keep my brows in place. I wanted to find a gel that was clear and some what affordable. I've always had very thick brows that were a struggle to keep tame. After getting recommended this product from someone at Ulta, I've been in love with it ever since. I have been using this everyday for about 5 months, and I still have plenty of product left! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a new brow gel!!
Carmella from MN
This product is easy to apply and hold all my brow hairs in place all day long. I have even worn this in the pool and it held up pretty good.
Leo from Los Angeles, CA
I have thick patchy brows so I use benefit good proof shade 4 to line and fill the patches on my brows and sometimes I use ABH duo brow powder when I want to really darken them up. I use the MAC brow set to set and hold everything together. It doesn't leave your brows hard and stiff but holds them in place nicely. I sweat like a pig (specially my forehead) and I've had occasions where I'm literally dripping sweat down my brows and it still holds them and the color in place.
Love this product!
Es from Alexandria
I tried this in a MAC store, and although I ended up not buying it (I already have 3 products), it helped me sculpt the shape of my eyebrows and held the hairs in place for hours. It left them the right amount of stiff (so not rigid like hairspray, yet not soft like Vaseline or something). I used it over my pomade but it didn't smear it. For reference, my eyebrows are not sparse nor bushy with small gaps (hence the pomade) but somewhat long hairs (which is why the gel made a significant difference, my eyebrows looked more polished, less unruly). Looking back, I regret not buying it impulsively
Disappointed from Houston, TX, USA
WHY in the world did you discontinue Show Off Brow Set? This was the only one that I have been able to find anywhere that matched my sandy brown hair color. All other browns are flat. VERY VERY VERY disappointed that this product has been discontinued. I can only hope someone will recognize the market here and create a comparable product. PLEASE CONSIDER BRINING IT BACK
Brian from Las Vegas, NV, USA
I have dark hair and darker brows so I was surprised when the MA chose Girl Boy. I liked the effect, it added a little warmth and color. It wears all day, which is great. It doesn't move on its own, also great, but if you forget you're wearing it and touch your brow / forehead, you could definitely have some smearing. I also get a little clumping, but I use an eyelash comb after I apply this and it takes care of it.
michelle from USA
will you ever sell show off brow set I cant find it anywhere
Nr2 from Kentucky
Easy to apply doesn't clump, doesn't last ten hours though.
