I always read reviews but I hardly ever write them. But for this I HAD TO! I hardly wear make up on a daily basis. My every day is mascara and brow. I work construction and sweat most of it off. So I want something that is super quick to put on and will STAY I was using benefit's Gimme Brow and I loved it. There is wrong with it but between rubbing my face and having to pull a mask on due to Covid I feel like I wipe some of my "eyebrows" off. I just want them to stay. An Ulta employee helped me pick Tapered for the color and swore this would stay. First impression was that it was WAY too light because my actual brow hair is black... however the color does change or darken. My left brow is basically non existent from the arch out and thin my right eyebrow is close to "perfect" but not as thick as I want. THIS MAKES MY BROWS LOOK SO PERFECT, thick, full, and NATURAL! Then I comb over the Benefit clear brow gel cause I already had it ... and it LITERALLY stay put till I wash it off 18 hrs later!!!!! My favorite feature of my face are my eyebrows now. For not being able to wear makeup to work... I look goooood. I do not have one bad thing to say about it. Love love love and I hope they make it forever.
I LOVED the Pro Longwear eyebrow gel. It was amazing. When they discontinued it, like many others, I ended up buying this one. It's not awful. It's not nearly as good as the Pro-Longwear, but it's not terrible.
Two things that I have figured out that have made this product actually useful:
1. GROOM YOUR BROWS FIRST. If you have any amount of brow at all, comb your brows before you apply this product. If you try and groom/comb them with this brush, you WILL end up with way too much product on your brows, and unless the look you're attempting to achieve is Groucho Marx-esque, you will not be happy. If you comb the brows first, you can gently apply a small amount of product just to the surface of the brows, which makes all the difference.
2. Like so many MAC products that come with a wand (Magic Extension Mascara, I'm looking at you....) WAY too much product comes out on the wand for at least the first few weeks that you own the product. Wipe the excess off on a rag/towel/paper towel/kleenex. Yes, you are wasting product. Yes, it's annoying. Yes, it makes a huge difference in the way the product applies. After a some product is diminished, you can either not wipe at all, or just gently wipe on the edge of the tube to remove excess product, thus, not wasting any.
With these two tips in mind, I have been able to successfully use this product, WITHOUT looking like a caricature of Brooke Shields.
On a plus note, once applied, this stuff DOES last. Through workouts, rain, shopping, glasses, car trips, you name it.

Missing the old formula so much! It was perfect - easy to apply, clean look, never had to worry about smudging. Please bring it back!
Syl H from San Diego, CA
The color is perfect for me. The formula is okay. The reason I don't love it is because of the brush size. I have another brand that is a similar product and the brush is much smaller and easier to handle. On the Mac version you get plenty of product and it's comparable to my tried and true (see above) but the applicator isn't it. Kind of a bummer. I'll continue using it…maybe I'm just too used to my smaller version?

It does all the work for you after lining with brow pencil, LOVE

I tried the shade "penny" and i must say i am SO disappointed with the new formula.
Messy, dry and definitely not as easy to apply as pro longwear waterproof brow set. The red chestnut shade was amazing, i wore it all the time and every time i was getting compliments.
Also the new one is much more expensive.
I miss my most used make up item
I have to find something else now.

This is a necessity if you want to frame your eyes. This produce goes on easily. It is buildable and easy to fix smudges while wet. If I don't want a full face of makeup I will use this, mascara, and translucent powder.
Jade from San Diego
I love this Brow Mascara because it makes doing my brows super easy. I get that some people love a carved out brow but this is great for me as I don't always have a lot of time to spend on doing my makeup. It gives my brows a fuller and more natural appearance that I love.
Judi from Az
So disappointed in this! It clumps, does not go on smoothly and I wasted money buying extras thinking maybe it was a bad batch. I have to wipe off the brush completely before I can even apply it, and it's still messy. It is a waste of time and money, do not even bother with this product. I have been a MAC lover for so many years, very disappointed.

Wow this product is amazing. I never write reviews but I had to log in and rate this. I'm Ulta diamond for 10+ years—have tried TONS of products. This is the first brow product that impressed me. It makes your brows look full and healthy in a natural way, extending and darkening the hairs, instead of just filling in or caking product on top. Mac fiber brow gel where have you been all my life!!! I have medium ash brown hair, I used stylized and it looks great.

This is the best eyebrow gel I have tried . I like that is fill my eyebrows in without me having to use a powder first. It set my eyebrows to a soft hold. It doesn't not leave my eyebrows hard. I would recommend this to a friend ! I'll repurchased this product as long as it stays on the market.
Dana from Denver, CO
Was a big fan of the Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set and when they discontinued, I was in search of a comparable replacement. This ain't it! It doesn't go on well and is very clumpy. No comparison to the Pro Longwear formula. Disappointed for sure.
JustMe from NJ
This product is great for people like me with thin eyebrows!!! I tried this product out in the store one day and loved it!!! I don't really have to use the pencil anymore!!
KJ from NY
Similar to other reviews, I am disappointed by this product and don't understand why they discontinued the Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set product, which was a fantastic tinted brow gel I had used for years. This product is not as effective, and not everyone is looking to add fibers to their brows. I hope MAC will consider bringing back the old product, otherwise I will seek another brand/product.
Eve from Brooklyn
Really don't understand the negative reviews. This is far my best brow gel in the market, please do not discontinue. Wish there was darker color available. I start with L'Oréal pencil to shape then I fill in the rest and I love it. Love the texture of it after it dries cause I'm able to fix any flaws with the pencil. Please do not discontinue.
GG from Oregon
The wand its self was all scrunched up and stuck together. The product doesn't work AT ALL. And its definitely not water proof like I was told. I would give 0 stars if I could.
GG from Michigan
Horrible product that frustrates me every morning! Loved the old Beguile Brow Set that made mornings a snap! I cannot believe Mac hasn't rectified this yet.
Carole from Minnesota
Gel was thick and gloppy. Brush is smaller and harder to use with the thick, fiberous gel. Bring back the old formula in beguile. I will look elsewhere for a better product.
Ab from Texas
Honestly, I've tried to like the new formula but I truly miss the pro long wear brow mascara specifically in the boy girl shade. I'm so disappointed when using anything other than that shade. I have a tube that I'm literally trying to scrape every bit out of. Please bring back the original formula and boy girl shade!
Rocker chick from Pinole, CA
This new eye brow gel is awful, it is too dark and clumps. I am a light medium blonde and Fling is the lightest color and still too dark for me. I loved the previous version, I used a little eye brown pencil and put the tinted eye brow gel on top, it looked very natural. I see I am not a lone in wanting the old version back. I am going to try Benefit's tinted eye gel.
Ev from NewYork
Really like this product, the brush is perfect for my brows. I first outline my brows with a thin brow pencil. Then I apply this to finish. My only complaint is that I wish they come out with a darker color closer to black.
BRING BACK THE OLD ONE from Mainplace
This product sucks!!! Makes my eyebrows look like blocks. I miss the old one! It would always make my brows natural and not clumpy.
Lovely from Los Angeles
Umm this takes me less than 1 minute to do my brows now! Perfect for when I'm on the run! It also makes my brows look fuller and holds them down all day and I love that for the same price as benefits this one has more product!
Sallie from Massachusetts
Bring back the old brow gel. This product is awful.
GG from MI
For many years, I used the Browset/beguile. It literally took seconds to have amazing brows. After the product was discontinued, customer service recommended this as a replacement. I've been suffering with it for over a month. It's terrible!! Clumpy and the brush is horrid. I spend more time on poor-looking brows than I do on the rest of my makeup. I've resorted to adding a little water to my old browser containers. Not the quality I've grown to expect from Mac. Giving them a little time to bring back the old and then I'm shopping for a replacement. This is not the way to start every day.
Sam from Carson city
Love this product, will buy again as it goes on my eyebrows clean and quickly.
