How to Use
Rated 3.89 out of 5 stars
I bought this recently and was surprised how it made my brows not move throughout the day, never liked eyebrow gel until I tried this. Makes it also look like you have more eyebrow hair. It's a really good product for the price and it's waterproof too so great for the summer. Highly recommend this eyebrow gel of you are looking for a good one.
I'm learning quickly nothing, I mean nothing, compares to Anastasia's Brow Gel. I am still in search for a good drugstore alternative. This one is just OK. It does the job but I do notice a difference. You can see the product on my brows. Comparing this to NYX brow wax, I prefer this. Next on my list to try is Milani's Brow Gel.

It's cheap and starts fleaky after dries out

This brow gel does exactly what a brow gel should, which is to keep your brows in place without messing up the pencil/powder/gel underneath. The hold is reasonably good- if you brush your brows and mostly leave them alone, they will stay put. If you're looking for a super strong hold I'd look elsewhere, but for most people this will do the trick. I find it's worth the price, and I'll probably purchase it again once it runs out! The brush could probably live a second life as a spoolie once you run out of product as well.

Usually I love nyx products, they are on the cheaper side but usually has a good quality. This brow gel had absolutely no hold. It was very very liquidy and almost watered down. The brush is nice though.

I use this over brow powder and pencil. I'm lucky those two products hide the grey hairs, so I can use this clear gel instead of some other brow mascara. Those are always gloppy, but this one isn't. It goes on without ruining the powder and pencil, and holds pretty well.

Ive used this for weeks now, and can say it hardly holds my brows in place. It just feels/seems as though im putting water on my brows. The only good thing about this is that it leaves no residue or flakey-ness.
LilC from Kingsport, TN
I tried this at Ulta. I used it with the Lift and Snatch brow gel pen. It went on wet but easy. It wasn't guey but light. It left a natural look and it stayed all day.
Bri from San Marcos
It's a nice one so far. I used to use the elf eyebrow gel and that would leave me with residue. This one doesn't seem to but I haven't worn it longer than a couple hours yet. So far so good and an amazing price for what you get
daniella from anaheim
I still use this eyebrow gel on the daily but 1) it does not keep your eyebrows in tact and 2) its not white or flakey at all, it just feels like a gel that doesnt dry up for me?
Kenna from Coraville
I use this product on my brows every morning and my brows stay beautiful all day long!!
Lo from KC
This is just okay. I have never tried a brow gel or wax product so I figured I'd start with something on the cheaper side and go from there. I have naturally thick, bold brows. The hairs themselves are thick and stubborn. This slightly enhanced the shape of my brows, but not enough to make me say wow. It looks best when you first apply it of course, but my brows laid back down pretty quickly afterwards. I'd say they went back to their before state about 70-80% after half an hour to an hour. The bottom hairs were the ones that stayed the best, the outer tip hairs stayed a little, and the mid/top portion and inner edge did not stay at all. It's okay for fast pick-me-up to keep in your purse/bag, but not good for a night out or any real hold. Used this product alone. No other products
Alice from Georgia
I see for some people it dries white/flaky, but it doesn't for me and stays in place all day. Definitely great for the price
Ag from NJ
At first I loved this product because my eyebrows felt like they were set in place. After a couple of hours the product had left a white crust in my eyebrows and it looked so bad 🤦🏻♀️
Lexx from Texas
I have tried many brow gels but this one takes the cake! Absolute best brow gel there is, it's like hairspray for you brows but exactly comfortable. You forget your wearing brow gel, last absolutely all day, no budge!!
Ulta Beauty Aesthetic from Missouri
This is the best AFFORDABLE clear gel I've ever used! If you want to save some money and be able to keep your eyebrows in tact look no further. I love NYX products.. I wish I tried this before. 10/10
ness from Michigan
The only things bad about this gel are I don't like that I can't tell how much is left in the tube because of this packaging, and when it goes bad it goes bad and starts to smell bad. Other than that I am sensitive, and I never had any weird reactions to this. My brows were reliable to stay in place whenever I apply it. This is the best brow gel I've ever used. It never left a weird flakiness or any kind of residue. It doesn't feel heavy in my brows either. I don't use brow gel daily, so maybe that's why mine went bad before I could use the entire thing up. If this all sounds good to you then I recommend picking this up when Ulta has it on sale, or if it's a need NYX is reasonably priced anyways. I will be repurchasing if I don't find a better option in my collection of clear brow gels to set and keep my brows in place all day.
Tab from norman
I have tried so many clear brow gels and this one is just not it. It's flakey and goopy, it makes it look like there's chunks of it in your eyebrows.
Hello Kitty from United States
It's the only eyebrow gel that holds my brows in place. It's has a thin, clear, and very wet formula so I never have to worry about it getting gloopy or white throughout the day. It amazing especially for the price point
Ellie from home
I honestly don't know why it's so hyped. this is so watery and makes you look crusty. it's not a cute look. it's also a pain to take off and gets stuck in my brows. don't buy this. waste of money.
sooze from Lawrence KS
It was like putting water on my eyebrows and dries down super flaky, making it look like I have eczema
Gabby from Ohio
I slap this stuff on my eyebrows and fluff them up! I can't believe the difference! I love this product and will hopefully use it for more years to come. My eyebrows are blonde and sparse, this helps make them fluffy and I love it!
Nicole from PA
Don't waste your money

I grew up during the 90's when thin lashes were "in", so needless to say, I did a fair amount of plucking years ago. I still have a good amount of my natural brows remaining, but I usually fill them in with brow pencil and then I use an eyebrow gel to set my brows and make them look more full and natural. I was using a brand that is at least 4X the cost for the longest time. I was in a bind and needed to buy another brow gel, and I came across this at Ulta. I thought to myself, I can spare a few bucks to give this a try. The NYX Control Freak Clear Eyebrow Gel is just as good as the expensive brand that I was using! I would consider this an amazing dupe! I will never go back because this works perfectly. It doesn't clump, doesn't leave a nasty residue, it isn't pasty or white… it goes on nicely and is completely clear. It sets my brows all day and they look perfect. I love it.
Kelsey from houston
It does nothing; I don't even have thick eyebrows. This couldn't keep a single hair in place and it dries white if you get it on your skin.
Ava from NM
I love this product. I constantly get compliments on my eyebrows and people asking if I get them laminated. The only thing I would suggest is not to use too much product or it flakes in your eyebrows.
marcy from s
I honestly love this eyebrow gel. It kept my brows so fluffy and if you like slick brows this isn't for u.
