NYX Eyebrow Gel Brunette Swatch and Review

I came home early from work today because the computer system is down so there is nothing we can do, which is unfortunate because it's our month end week and we still got a lot of entries to do so eventually I will still need to makeup for loss time, boo!

Few weeks ago when NYX had a sale, I went ahead and snag this new eyebrow gel and a few of their new Simply Lip Cream. Got to test it out for a few days and here's what I think of it...

  • Plastic clear squeeze tube. The packaging reminded me a lot the Make Up Forever Aqua Brow. 
  • .34 oz or 10 ml

  • Brunette is a medium brown with grey undertone, which I find perfect because it's not too dark and it complements my hair color. 
  • The pigmentation is very good. The gel feels more like a cream. I find the texture a bit thick and the quick dry formula makes this brow gel tricky to apply. You will need to work fast. I would suggest working on a small area at a time and try to spread it out evenly in one coat. Adding a second coat makes it difficult to blend and can end up looking cakey. 
  • Once the product sets, which is within a few seconds, it does not budge or smudge. It is also waterproof. However, if you have oily skin, the color may smudge a bit when you rub on it. Otherwise, it's rather long-wearing. 

Final Thought

My main complaint would be the quick drying/setting. It doesn't give me enough time to work with it until I'm happy with the application so I have to be extra careful and quicker. Not a product I wanna mess with when I'm in a hurry. I also don't really like the thick creamy consistency. It makes it easy to cake up. Put that aside, the pigmentation is great and a little goes a long way. If you're looking for an affordable waterproof brow gel, you might be interested in this product.

  1. I almost picked some up at Ulta and I regret not doing so. I will at some point. That color looks so good for dark brunettes x

    1. I agree. It's a perfect color for dark brunettes.

  2. This product looks great the way you've applied it. So natural and I like the color a lot! My only issue would be application. A quick drying gel sounds real scary to me!

    1. I wished it didn't set so quickly. I also struggle with the application because of that.
