Though naturally neat and arched, my brows are too dark!
Too dark that they can never match my lightened hair colour.
For this reason, I have been on a hunt for a brow product that would do just that: lighten my brows to compliment my hair.
Over the years, I have tried and tested a number of eyebrow pencils, but not a single one can seem to satisfy me with the results I was looking for.
It is from my constant "re-searching" over the net, reading beauty blogs, that I stumbled upon the MAC Brow Set.
All the reviews that I came across seem to favour the product, so I thought why not give it a shot!
The MAC Brow Set in Girl Boy ended my searching game for the best brow product to temporarily lighten my brows.
It was love at first stroke, indeed! I instantly fell in love with the product as soon as I was able to try it on the MAC counter, and from then on, led its way to my makeup staples!
Thanks to this beauty, my eyebrows now perfectly compliment my golden-brown hair!
- The MAC brow set, true to its purpose, is able to define my brows giving it a bolder look, while tinting them lighter.
- The product makes my brows stay in place; never stiff, flaky or dry.
- The gel is very pigmented. Girl Boy's colour pay-off is amazing! The lightened brows make my face brighter and somewhat, tamer.
- It is long-lasting; the longest I have had it on my brows is for about 12 hours, and no fading was observed.
- It has a pleasant smell; great for the scent-conscious.
- The container holds a decent amount of product that could last for ages.
Additionally, the clear container is a good indicator of how much of the product is left.
- The wand picks up the right amount; never messy and nothing goes to waste, in my case.
- Can be worn solo or over filled-in brows, depending on how thick the brows are.
- There are 4 shades available ranging from clear to dark to light. There is one to compliment each hair colour changes.
I will definitely re-purchase the product over and over!
Thanks for reading my review!
I use the Velux Eye Pencil to line and define my brow and then the brow gel to set the style. Unfortunately, if you use the gel brush to apply, any eye pencil applied to your skin will come off. Luckily, one of your on-line consultants suggested using my finger to apply the gel and set my brows. That works better. Maybe this product should be packaged in a pot instead of a brush on.

At first I was skeptical until I finally gave it a try. I love the way it holds my brows in place and with just little strokes with my Mac eye brow styler, I am all done and looking so natural but yet sleek!

I love this
Rach from Phoenix
I wanted to love it, but I can get the same results using hair gel. It leaves my eyebrows glossy. By the end of the day it's flaking off. For some reason it seems that after a few weeks, it stopped doing anything.

Let me start with the fact that my eyebrows are straight and easy to tame, so I know this may work differently for those with thicker eyebrows that may not be as cooperative. With that said, I love this! I use this and the benefit gimme brow depending on whether or not I want a color or clear. I personally hate a super strong hold on my eyebrows. I don't want crunchy or hard brows at all and this is the perfect hold without making the hair stiff. My eyebrows still feel like hair when I use this which is perfect for me. I prefer this to the benefit product because of the wand. I like that this wand isn't quite mascara wand size but also not tiny like the other. It's somehow makes it super easy to just comb out my brows quickly on no makeup days (some days I wear literally nothing but will still use this and a lip mask). It actually ends up picking up the color of my pencil so I tend to keep two open at all times, one that stays clear (mostly lol) and one that I let get murky. It actually works a little better when it's older and mixed with the pencil.

I've been using the Mac brow set for many years. Great for women with oily skin! Gives brow pencil more staying power. Brows generally stay in place all day! Love this product!

Holds well and no flaking

I have used a certain brand as a brow gel my entire life. When I saw Mac had one I immediately decided to try it and have no regrets. I have a Bandan my other brand and will use Mac for life.

I love that this is a clear gel because it allows me to use any color I want to shade in my eyebrows before applying. However, it doesn't have the same hold as big boost fiber gel and my longer eyebrow hairs move out of place if I brush against them by accident.
Renee from Portland
Use in the morning and holds brows in place all day.

I was looking for a basic brow gel as a beginner and I absolutely love this gel! It keeps my eyebrows in place even when I'm sweating or sleeping. Definitely great for beginners and those who have pretty agreeable brows.

I've been trying to find a good clear brow gel for me. This one just wasn't it. First off, it had a horrible really strong smell to it. Very chemical like and something I wouldn't want on my eyebrows. Not sure if I got a bad batch or what. Second off, it didn't even hold my brows in place at all. I've been using the clear brow gel by makeup revolution and it works amazing. It doesn't flake and holds my brows in place for a few hours. Even tho I like that one I'm trying to find one that works better for me. For now tho, that'll be my go-to. It's only $7 at Ulta too.

Koi from UK
Ordered this off ASOS due to great reviews but it doesn't do anything. Feel disappointed. Waste of money :(
Asha from Maryland
it's a little pricey for a brow gel but i love it and continue to keep buying it. I just love how it truly holds my brow hairs in place. I do feel that they need to change the packaging because you aren't able to get all of the product out which is a waste of money.

Use for eyebrows and lashes. I have naturally long lashes and don't always like using regular mascara. This defines my lashes and is not clumpy at all. I do use on my brows too, just to keep them in check.

Holds brows in place all day without the wet look I hate. Not sticky or flaky. Have been using to tame my thick wild brows for years!!

This is such a Great addition to my morning routine. Shapes the brow beautifully. Cuts my application time and my brows look fantastic all day. Thanks Johnna @ Deer Park Location for introducing me to this product. All my friends are getting it for Christmas. You always have Great Ideas!
Excellent simple groomer. Not overpriced from Tampa
Not overpriced and does what it needs to do. I use it daily. Perfect product for a guy!
DN from Oregon
I bought this because I wanted my brows to hold their shape. One little bump and they're out of place. If you don't touch your brows, put on a shirt, wear a hat or beanie, or sweat then they'll stay in place. But if you do any of these normal activities they won't stay in place.
Simple fix from Scranton
Does what it should. Goes on smooth. I like the brush too.
Sona from Ca
Great hold. Long lasting. Gives Naturally set brow. No smell. A little goes a long way. Love the brush. No itch when dries up
KathyV from Washington
I have repurchased this several times. Its what keeps my brows natural looking after I use some color them. Brows are one of the most important things to have a youthful look but keep them looking natural, not fake.
