I received a #complimentary sample of the color Neutral Nana and it was a perfect match for my haircolor. The product packaging boasts that the brow gel is transfer resistant, smudge resistant, waterproof and offers up to 60 hrs of wear. As an oily skin girl, who normally has to touch up my brows more than once a day, I was skeptical and ready to put these claims to the test. The first thing that I appreciated about the product was the small angled applicator brush. It made applying the product easy. I was able to get relatively precise points on the outer ends of each brow. I also like having a pointed arch and the brush was well suited to helping me achieve that look. As I mentioned previously, the color of the gel was a perfect match for my hair, but I found that to be a draw back. I normally wear a very bold brow look. I prefer my brows to be a couple of shades darker than my haircolor. The gel was thin and easy to apply, but it took several coats for me to achieve the dense look that I prefer. Seeing as how the gel dries to a truly budgeproof finish, that made it difficult to layer and get the level of coverage that I like...without ending up with goopy-looking brow hair. I did really enjoy the staying power of this product, though! It did not smudge, blur, bleed or melt whatsoever. It looked the exact same at 11:30 p.m. as it did when I applied it at 8:00 a.m. I tried this product for 3 days in a row and by the 3rd day, I had worked out the lack of coverage kink by going over my brows with a spooly of my regular dark brown brow gel. That darkened things up a bit and also helped brush out the matted up look of some of the hairs. At the end of the day when I was taking my makeup off, I had to work and scrape a bit, even with my makeup removing oil, to get all of the gel off my skin and out of my brows. All in all, it's a great product, especially for ladies who enjoy a long wearing, more natural brow look.
Most Helpful Critical Review This was just not it for me.
I really wanted to love this brow gel and had high hopes, unfortunately it did not preform nor hold up. I began with a freshly cleaned and exfoliated face. I brushed my brows with a spoolie before applying. The color was so much darker than I anticipated. The applicator is a tiny paint brush. I applied each brow in the same manner; I started with a light handed line to mark where I didn't want to go below, then I began upward strokes. Some areas went on smooth while others began to clump quicker. You need to work fast with this product. The brush doesn't allow for a natural look, so I had to go back through with a spoolie to brush out my brows to attempt that. Again, if you don't move fast enough the product is going to clump and give you issues. Once the product is on, it has some staying power yet it doesn't look natural. This could be because of the darker color or because of the clumpy areas. With time and more practice using this particular gel I might like it, but first impressions mean a lot. There are so many other products that are easier to use and preform at a better rate. Even if they changed the applicator wand, that would make a difference. *If you do want to take this product off early, use POND'S cold cream. The pictures show first application in standard house lighting, second day outside natural light, and second day natural light with a filter that my best friend gave all the Bears eyebrows to make me feel better. lol I'm so glad I was able to get the chance to try this complimentary.

Not a waterproof, sweat proof or long wear product. I live in Texas and it's hooooot. I sweat right through it. Tried swimming in it being careful not to wipe my face and it bled right off. Worked with it for several days trying different methods. It was messy, took forever to dry and didn't apply evenly. Super disappointed and total waste of money. I never leave product reviews but this was so bad I just had to say something.
Can't live without!

I go between this a The Urban Decay Brow blade. The ink in both products is a complete life saver for my 90's over plucked brows. (Take some time to play w the product & you'll never use anything else again

Love this product! It replaces my former fave, Anastasia Dipbrow, because of how easy it was to use. The only thing I miss is the spoolie brush, but I just use my own. Perfection!

Less itchy than most eyebrow products
I will buy this again.
Conie from Arizona
It's a great product.
Looks exactly how advertised
Gia Marie from Pearland Tx
I'm over 40 and this last all day. The application is too thick for me but I was able to lightly go in and it worked perfect for the areas that are too sparse.
Best brow makeup ever!
GalaxieGirl from Melbourne, Florida
My brows have never looked this amazing before!! And it stays so nicely no matter how much I sweat! I'm sold...
This is an awesome product!
powerlifting1 from Richmond, Il
I bought this hoping for the best and I got it!! I have very light brows and usually dye them. I work out very hard 5 days a week and sweat like crazy and this product stays put! Even with me wiping my face constantly. I decided to try an experiment and put this on and wore it for 3 days and it stayed on through 3 workouts, 6 walks, 2 showers and swimming in a pool. I would recommend this to anyone! The only downfall is the applicator, but I put a bit on and then use a brow brush to spread it. Would never stop me from using it!
Really lasts (I have no eyebrow hairs)!

Urban Decay Inked Brow really lasts. I have no eyebrows at all. I have oily skin and my hair brushes across my forehead. Because of this, I have to repeatedly re-apply whatever eyebrow makeup I'm using. I've tried everything (powder, pencil, gels). NOTHING has the staying power of Urban Decay Inked Brow. It lasts all day while I'm at work - miracle! I got three colors - neutral nana, taupe and spice. I'm fair skinned (blonde/green) with a little color right now. The neutral nana is looking best/most natural. I find it easy to apply.
Holy Grail Brow Product!
cam from IL
I have extremely oily skin with very sparse eyebrows.This brow product is the only thing that lasts on my eyebrows and I don't have to worry about wiping or scratching it off. I could nap, go to the beach, change clothes, and my brows will still look the same!
There is a slight learning curve but in my opinion, it's easier than other brow pomades. It's a very thin, liquidy product and the brush tends to be overloaded when you take it out, so just wipe a bit off into the tube. The color looks warmer straight out of the tube but doesn't look that warm on the eyebrows. Personally, I use my own eyebrow brush so that I can spoolie the hairs and my own eyebrow brush is a bit thinner than the product's, but it still works fine on its own!
UD, please don't ever discontinue this! I have never discovered anything better. If anything, take the formula of this and put it in brow pen packaging!

Great coverage....not too thick or heavy. Love it!
WOW WOW WOW
Autumn from Hot Spring, AR
I can't tell you how long I have been searching for a brow product that actually stays put. This stuff does!! It is waterproof & sweat proof. It last about 2-3 days. My eyebrows are super thin and I am so happy I found this product! I will be a customer as long as they continue to make it!
Very happy with this!
Tonya from Sarasota
I really like this product. It takes a little practice for my thin brows, but I have the hang of it now. It will stay on all day and even after I wash my face, most of it will still be there and I just touch it up.
Too wet, applicator is wrong material
Doc sparkles from Rochester, NY
The applicator wipes the product off skin because there's no bristles, nothing to deposit product. The applicator is solid silicone , more like a thin liner. It does stay on well , even with sweating. Got it from a gift card . Would NOT buy again. ELF product easier to apply, stays on just as well. A swing & a miss for me. The color , shade taupe trap is good for pale skin, light red hair, which is often difficult to find, usually the shades are more brown.
FAVORITE PRODUCT LOVE IT
abby from michigan
love it! says 60 hours mine lasts up to 5 days! won't wash off with water but come off east with cleansing water! been doing brows for years this is my favorite product!
Cass from MGM, AL
This is one of the best brow products I've used. It truly stays. Getting ready for work takes much less time now that I only have to use a teensy bit to fill in areas where it washes off (it barely washes off) I LOVE waking up with filled in brows. It does dry super quickly, and if you try using a brush that's not the applicator it does take a while to apply a few coats. If you've got a steady hand, the applicator is all you need.
Not what I was expecting.
Cyn from Indianola, IA
Was very watery and hard to notice any difference after application. Was disappointed after spending so much on it. Also when you pull the brush out it suctions most of the liquid off so you have to dip it several times per eyebrow.
Nickkie G from North Dakota
I am not huge on doing my eyebrows, Its a part of my routine I could go without doing. This product is great as a filler, It goes on smooth and stays on. Even after washing my face this stuff does not budge. If you are looking for a more dramatic eyebrow, this isnt it unless you use a lot of it, like I stated it's a great filler. It does dry like paint... you have to work quickly with it. It's my favorite brow product.
Keylee from PA
its ok. Very transparent and will work as a filler. Its liquid and drys like paint. Super thin and takes many applications even as a filler.
Hairgoddess19 from Albuquerque NM
Bought this recently thinking it was travel size. Didn't realize the price almost died when I saw my receipt. BUT so worth it once I tried it. I've got super oily skin nothing ever lasts this product is one of the first I have ever found that does. A bit tricky to use but once you get the hang of it you're good to go.
Amazing product! Really does what it says!

BUT I WISH IT CAME IN BLACK! :(
Dark drapes is dark but I feel with my black hair it looks a little bit off. Will still buy it forever though!
Love how long it last

I love how easy it is to apply.
still on the edge
Andrea from Colorado
I have used this a few times .Thinking a few more times of use it will look better . It is a bit clumpy and hard to make even .Thinking with practice I may get the technique down .
Jess from DFW, Texas
Stays through my workout. In the shower. At the pool. Sweating in my hot car where the air condition takes forever to kick in. Overnight while I sleep. It really lasts.
I found my Holy Grail!!
Maghon from New York
I used to wax and pluck my eyebrows, and it got to the point they were so thin. I started to attempt to regrow my brows last year and gave up on the plucking and waxing altogether. I have tried pencils and pomades to achieve that filled in brow look; both products tend to budge. When I saw the Inked Brow Gel, I knew I had to give it a go. The Cafe Kitty shade matches my brow color nicely!! The staying power is incredible (60 hour hold is awesome!!) and all you need is a right amount to go a long way. I will definitely get this again - I have found my Holy Grail!!
