Thank you so much for joining me! I sure hope all my readers are doing well today! I am so excited to finally give everyone my thoughts on this product! I have been absolutely loving everything about this brow gel the past couple months! It has become an essential makeup product for me, and I think you would love it too!
In today’s review I am going to give you all the details from the packaging to the pros and cons of the product. If you’re interested to know more just keep on scrolling!

A lot of the time I am not a fan of drug store packaging. They typically have cheaper looking packaging because it helps to keep the price of the product down. I totally understand that. This packaging, however, completely shocked me. I really enjoy the packaging that they designed. It is in a squeeze tube looking package, but it does have a doe foot/spooly type of applicator. It is kind of hard to explain, but I really enjoy it! The packaging is sleek, slim, and definitely travel friendly. The only thing I don’t like is the extra spooly they provide for blending. For me it was just too small, and I prefer to use others in my collection.
How To Apply
- Wipe off excess product from the applicator into the tube.
- Apply to both brows. No second dip needed.
- Use provided clean spooly or one of your choice to blend.
- Use a cue tip to clean up edges if needed.
If you want a more defined brow look start by outlining the brow with a brow pencil, and then fill in with the brow gel.
Pros Vs. Cons
Right off the bat I want to mention that there are some cons to this product. I do like the applicator, but it picks up way to much product at first. You definitely have to wipe off excess product from it before you use it or you will apply way too much. So you do have to be careful to not apply to much product, but in Maybelline’s defense they did market the product in this way. In all their advertisements they tell you to wipe off excess product, therefore, I was expecting that con.
The other con I want to mention is that it can be messy. I love using this on my no makeup days just to darken my brows. The days I use this I tend to prefer a messy and natural looking brow that is just a shade darker. If you are wanting a very structured look it is a little harder to achieve. It is not impossible, you can definitely get a structured brow, but just be aware that it will be extra work with this product. As I mentioned I tend to use this on days where I have no makeup or minimal makeup.
Now moving on to the pros, the formula of this product is bomb! It is super pigmented! The color really does pack a punch, and I love that. The formula truly is waterproof. I have put it through the test, and water will not budge this product. So this would be perfect for summer at the beach or the pool. You can apply your brows with no fear of them smudging or needing to reapply. I also find the claim that the gel lasts for two days to be true. The only exception is that if you use a makeup remover or face wash directly on the brow it will remove the product. However, you can wash your face, and just work around your brows to keep the product in place. It is a lazy girls dream! I do my brows on Sunday night, and then the first few days of the week I don’t have to worry about doing them!
Overall, I am super impressed with this product. I love how it makes my brows look! I also love that Maybelline marketed this product perfectly! They made it sound appealing to the consumer while still being truthful with what to expect from their product. This brow gel has quickly become one of my most used makeup products, and I will definitely be repurchasing this in the future! I highly recommend everyone checking it out!
