Up until today, I have yet to find the perfect eyebrow gel but the Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara is the closest thing that I could find.
So, I’m doing a review on this today and since my sister was the one who bought this (that’s ok…we like sharing things) so I will be getting an insight from her as well.
Let’s see what we both think about this product below.
My sister’s thoughts
Pros: I purchased this gel for my eyebrows since I have full eyebrows and by the end of the day they are unruly and all over the place; this was the most affordable I could find (approximately $5.99), because I’d rather invest in some awesome eyeshadow or blush instead.
I comb this product through my eyebrows after I put on an eyebrow pencil underneath, and it definitely makes everything look nice and have a shape. The gel doesn’t dry hard or waxy, it pretty much just feels like your normal eyebrow hairs.
Cons: Unfortunately it doesn’t last too long for me..I put it on at 7 am and by 3 pm my eyebrows are all over the place. I almost wish this was waxier or heavier duty. Also, be careful when you put it on, I always have to remove excess product that comes out of the tube.
Pros: I have fine eyebrows that end up all over the place because I wear bangs and constantly touch my forehead. I used to use clear lip gloss just to set my eyebrows but that, understandably, turned into a sticky disaster.
As for the Maybelline clear mascara, this gel does not flake, and does not really dry, but it grooms the eyebrows, sets the shape, and gives definition.
I know my sister doesn’t really like this eyebrow gel, but I find that by the end of the day my eyebrows still look clean and shaped correctly.
Cons: You have to wipe the wand in a tissue because there is too much gel from this product and will be clumpy if you don’t.
What other people think?
Since we have only used this as a brow gel and have not tried it with our eyelashes, I think it is good to get other people’s opinions.
Here are 3 youtube videos that I’ve found.
