Most Helpful Positive Review Passed My Critical Taste And Need
I am a ballroom dancer. I also one of those people who were not blessed with eyebrows. I needed what ever there are out in the market that will fulfill my need for an eyebrow, color, shades, and will not come off during my dances exhibitions, that of course, involves heavy sweating on the forehead. I found NYXcosmetics.com, and bought NYX Proof It!, Tame & Frame, Epic Black Mouse Liner, and Stay matte but not flat Powder foundation. These products are an absolute answer to my critical taste and needs. Here are a couple of picture to show proof that it is truly waterproof.
Most Helpful Critical Review Didn't work for me
I don't know if I'm using it wrong or something but when it dried it made my eyebrows look horrible and didn't really dry clear. I don't know how to explain orbit it left like some weird white stuff when it dried as if I put glue on my brows

Incredible! Using this, there's no accidental wipe off. My brows stay in place no matter how hard I'm sweating or if Im up for 3 days straight. Rain doesn't touch either! No worrying about coming out of the gym or a rainstorm missing one eyebrow anymore! I love love loveee this stuff! Kinda difficult to remove even using makeup remover though, really gotta buff it off.
What happened to the mascara proof it!

That is the only way I could use mascara!
Keeps Brow Powder in Place
anonymous from SF Bay Area, CA
This eyebrow primer helps keep my brow powder from fading on hot days. At the end of the day, my eyebrows look like I just did them. Before I found this eyebrow primer, I used to have to reapply my brow powder every few hours.
Pretty good product for people who work outside in the heat
Jan from Arkansas
Helps eyebrows not to smudge when sweating. Can leave clumps of eyebrow makeup along the brow.
Love This, Keeps Brows In Place!!
Enthralling from Illinois
I absolutely can't properly do my brows without this! I use the little wand to swipe some on to the sparse areas and the ends of my brows, brush it in with a spoolie and then use my regular brow products. This keeps my brow products in place all day without coming off and as an oily skinned woman this is a huge deal for me, especially on hot summer days.
Nyx tried... and did not succeed.
MissShelbyD from Lawton, OK
The concept behind this is a great idea in theory. However, I found it turns gray and makes your brows look very ashy. It also causes what I like to call 'brow piling'. This term is derived from 'washer wear and piling'... you know, the little 'balls' that appear after washing cotton shirts too much? Yeah, that, but in your brows. It's definitely not cute.
Works great especially when it is hot.
Larialphy from Claremont,ca
Put a thin layer on your brows and let dry for a minute. Don't place to much on your brows cause they will start peeing off. With this product a little fows a long way.
The best Drugstore Brow Primer around.
Siren Jewel from New York, NY
This primer is one of the best or the best comparing to Anastasia Beverly Hills. It really helps to set brow powder for the whole day. It's waterproof and it doesn't smear or budge at all. It also makes brows look natural. I totally recommend it for anyone that doesn't like brow pomades but instead uses the NYx Eyebrow Cake Powder like me.
Works great. Feels a little heavy though.
Apple Chips from undisclosed
I use this for my eyeshadow and a little goes a long way. My cheap eyeshadows apply amazingly with this primer. I have to quickly blend the primer after applying because it's so thick and leaves a harsh line with my eyeshadow if I don't.. It feels heavy on my eyelids but it doesn't budge and it's great for it's price!
For having NO eyebrows, this is the only product that works!
Red from Los Angeles, CA
Literally, I suffer from Trichotillomania and have been for about 20 years now. This product is the only thing that makes them (my "eyebrows") stay put even when swimming under water, sweating my booty off from the gym or in the middle of head banging against the rail at a concert (oh the younger days). They even last when you have that certain someone over spending the night and don't want to freak them out by having NO brows.
The trick! Ladies!!! yes it says primer, but who else has noticed that when you apply this first before drawing your brows on, nothing (color wise) actually sticks to your face? My suggestion that has been working for me for 7+ years now: draw your eyebrows on once you finish your face makeup (vice versa) the use this Primer like a SETTING SPRAY! USE THE PRIMER AFTER YOU DRAW YOUR BROWS ON TO MAKE THEM STAY CAPUUUUUUTT! I swear by this product. all of my other makeup tends to be more prestigious brands bc my skin is so sensitive, but i will ALWAYS come back for NYX Proof It Eyebrow Gel ❤️

Does not keep eyeshadow from creasing. Doesn't really make eyeshadow go on better either. Not impressed.
Makeup last all day
Lydia from Pendleton SC
With this primer my eyeshadow says on all day (12+ hours and eyeshadow still looks good)!
Worst eyebrow primer I've ever used!
Callie From The Valley from Orlando, FL
I'm clearly missing the mark because this product has great reviews but this was not for me. I work outdoors in the Florida heat so I've been searching for the perfect eyebrow primer. However this product made my eyebrows so sticky I was unable to apply color. Once I manage to apply color it went on extremely dark. The highlight of this product nightmare was the removal. I was so frustrated I decided to skip my make up routine at this point and remove my eyebrows make up completely and a tonss of my eyebrows hair came out with it! This has never happened to me before with any product. Regardless of how this product suck for me, I genuinely love NYX. I'll continue to purchase from this brand, but I will be throwing this product out asap.
so bomb for oily lids
kate from Philadelphia, PA
It's thin and clear you can't even feel like it's on your eyelids. sets really quickly and eyeshadows blend beautifully on it. really helps with longevity for oily eyelids. highly recommend, my new fav eye primer!!
it truly works!
G from Merrimac, Ma
apply one brow at a time Then use your favorite eyebrow filler. They will stay in place no matter what you use. Then apply to the other brow and repeat.
2nd time around

Lifesaver on my beach trip!
DMac from Mobile, AL
Alright, so I went on a beach trip a few weeks ago and the day before we left, I made the terrible decision to go to a different girl to do my brows and ended up getting half a brow ripped off. I instantly started looking up products to use to help because there was no way I was gonna be seen at the beach like that lol after reading up on a few things I grabbed this product at Ulta and it was definitely a lifesaver for me! I will say it does get a little dry and clumpy on your brows if you're not careful, but running a spoolie thru your brows right after application helps a lot. A little goes a long way! I used this with MAC's shape + shade brow tint and you couldn't even tell I was missing half a brow! It lasted all day long while we were on the beach and in the ocean. Will definitely be buying this again!
Works best if you use a light amount
NYNurse from USA
A little goes a long way so don't over apply. This will lock your eye brows or eye brow makeup in place all day. Sometimes I apply it on top of my eye makeup instead of under it and it locks my brow makeup in place all day.
Does exactly as it says on the wand
akiras from Florida
My brows did not come off!
Lamcarrasquillo from Mountainside, NJ
I was contemplating microblading for my thinning brows since powders and pencils did not stay. I tried this primer and love how it made my brows look. It is easy to use with your brow powder, did not come off all day, but was easy to remove with soap and water before bed. This is my new favorite product. Made my brows look perfect and stayed in place all day.
Lac from Beaumont CA
With oily skin, eyebrows tend to slip away. This product keeps brow powder, tinted, etc stay in place. Love it!
Sylvia from Nebraska
I have oily skin, that includes my eyebrows. This primer helps reduce the shine in my eyebrows, helps product stay on longer. I hate shiny eyebrows so I'm glad I discovered this! Only complaint is that there is not a lot of product, I seem to go through it fast. Also you need to make sure to rub it in or use a spoolie once applied otherwise when it dries it shows up a little. Other than that this is a must for me!
It works! I've been using this product for over a year.
Nic from NC
I love this product, it really works especially for people like me with really thin eyebrows and have to you an eye brown make up. The only bad thing is that anytime I go to a local Ulta there is never any, so I decided o just order a few online.
