Most Helpful Positive Review IN LOVE!!!!!!!!
Let me start by saying, years ago... I started using Too Faced brow pallet which was fab. I then graduated to Benefit's brow pallet which was my go to. I loved the pomade/wax texture of the pigment from benefit. BUT...I am a student and I can't afford that price on the regular. I was between trying this and the mini pallet that has the pressed powder and wax separate.
THANK GOD I CHOSE THIS.
This is possibly one of the best purchases I have ever made in a very long time. I have medium skin and super dark hair. I went with the espresso. PERFECT SHADE <3 I work at a hospital and it lasts through my 13 hr shift without smudging! (I prepped my brows with a bit pf primer though :)) )
I highly recommend this product to anyone!!!!

I decided to do an update on this product review because when I first purchased this I loved it. But that was when I was simply darkening my existing brows. When I started using it to create the shape that I like since my brows are very sparce and due to overplucking my arch no longer grows it became a nightmare. It smudges, drags/pulls/skips over the skin and hairs, it's difficult to clean up with concealer/makeup remover, and if you're trying to create shape and definition it goes on so lightly that you need to darken your lines up and when you do that it clumps, makes a mess, and always smudges outside of your existing line. Another con is that unless you intend on closing the pot after every dip into the product it will harden and become even harder to work with due to drying out quickly when exposed to oxygen. I have only had this product for 3 months and it is already so hard that it's almost impossible to work with. There's no happy medium with how much product to use on your brush, it's either too much and creates dark smudges or it's too light and requires going over a few times, leading to mistakes. The best way to use this is to set it with a brow powder/eye shadow of your choosing or it will look very shiny and unnatural. If you have thick brows to work with this product might be easier for you to use, but if you have sparce thin brows and want to create shape/define and achieve a natural look don't bother.

kavya from mn
i doesn't show up and when it does- it looks like a brown piece of chalk smeared my face. it's too creamy too the point where it doesn't even stay on the face but just looks like a preschooler colored on my face.
wouldn't buy it again
Sam from Braintree, MA
It was really nice for a couple days when I first bought it, but after a while it becomes clumpy. It also is really light on your brows, so most of the time, you don't really notice a big different. Also its hard to get the desire shape because it doesn't pick up pigments that well.
i love this! looks so nice!
liberty jole from St. Louis, MO
this pomade works so well, a little though. it's the only product that matches my goldish blonde hair.
BCV from Midwest
CHUNKY. Not creamy at all and comes off so chunky and extremely patchy. Don't even bother.
I would buy again buuut...
Blondie from Las Vegas
The product could be a bit more pigmented but it lasts all day. I do like the product but for someone who just started using pomade should use a pencil instead. :D
Great Brow Pomade
LM from Phoenix
Brush on product with lip brush, use eyebrow brush after and fill in or use liner if needed to shape up.
It's an ok product I am just beginning to use.
Cindy from Atlanta,Georgia

It's very creamy and doesn't pigment
Alizè from San Jose, CA
I love this brow gel! I like it better than Anastasia! Anastasia brow gel is really annoying and takes forever just to apply, meanwhile this nyc brow gel is very thick and quick and easy kind of feels like a gel eyeliner! I love it! My new go to. I just wish it wasn't so tiny!
Really liked this product. Can't believe it's from a store
Mimi from Immokalee, Fl
My brows have never looked better!
Tish from WA
I have tried many brow pencils and ended up trying this pomade and immediately fell in love with how natural it looks and how easy it is to use. I don't have a steady hand but I find the application of this formula to be super easy and fun to apply!
Uh oh from Queens
If you're looking for a good pomade this really isn't the one. It's almost like butter when you put it in a pan to make eggs. You put it on your brown and it goes away when you brush. Anastasia will be my next stop
Mari from Houston
Dried out fast fast and was basically wax.
fine but dries out quickly
cat from Kansas
This stuff is great for like a week. After that it dries out and is useless.
It's just basically wax
Lis from Houston
Too much wax not enough color..
meh from illinois
This pomade is super slippery and will not stay put on your brows. No matter how much you put on it doesn't fill in or stay put
Not the one
Ar from FL
I love the eyebrow gel in the tube but wanted something easier to use like this pot. It goes on sheer and flakey. Never again...
Happy Customer from Washington DC
I've been using this product for the last 2 years, and I love it. Make sure you get the color that best matches your brow color. It had such a natural finish. I get compliments about my brows all the time.

Lit from Aurora, CO
I did my eyebrows at 12pm and then gave my man head at 6ish pm and then got sick around 10pm and went to bed and woke up with my eyebrows still on. So I highly recommend!
Rani from Strongsville
Espresso was too light for my eyebrows but that it my own fault, although the product doesn't stay on for long. The product lasted for a little bit then did not show anymore. The pomade container is also way smaller than expected. But a little bit of the product went a long way.
Waste of money
Diva44 from OH
I saw this online being bragged about being amazing for stay proof...every day i have to reapply when other products I've used have stayed on for days. I'm just trying to get through the jar.
I wouldn't buy this product again.
Kimmy from Illinois
At first it applied smoothly, but over time the product in the container dried up. It then caused a clumpy looking eyebrow.
