Battle Of The Brow Gels

Battle Of The Brow Gels

Battle Of The Brow Gels

It’s no surprise that I am a lover of brows as I talk about them all the time on my blog, and I have managed to accumulate quite the selection of brow products. I was going through my collection and thought that I would be a great idea to put some of my brow gels to the test and see which ones are true holy grails and which ones are just average. Let’s jump right in.

Benefit Gimme Brow ($30)

I bet you aren’t shocked to see this on the list, are you? This product is on it’s last few uses and definitely due for a repurchase soon. I absolutely love the tiny brush that this comes with because I do not have the thickest of brows and really like to be precise with my application. In terms of formula, it’s not too wet or too dry, it lands somewhere in between. This product boasts about having volumizing fibers, and you can build up the volume with a few coats, but I find that this gel just smooths over your brows without adding too much. It’s a nice no fuss option gel that will work for anyone.

Clinique Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse ($21)

This product feels like nothing when it’s applied to the brows and really fills them in nicely and don’t leave your brows looking flat. It gives the most volume and definition, but I do find that there can be a bit of flaking with this gel as it is on the dry side. Once applied, your brows will not budge or move throughout the day and it too is also water resistant. As for the wand and the packaging, it is nearly identical to Benefit’s and is a few dollars cheaper. If you want a product that is really going to give you those thick, Instagram-worthy brows with just a few strokes, this is one to try out and truly takes the cake for me.

Mirabella Brow Shaper ($25)

I have been using the Mirabella brow pencils on and off for over well a year now, and have really enjoyed them. This product is one that I don’t reach for as often because this gel has a huge brush, the size of your standard mascara wand, and can be quite difficult to work with. The drier formula, which I prefer, adds nice volume to your brows, fills in gaps and makes them look very polished over and uniform. A big downside is that the brow shaper only comes in one shade, so it won’t be an option for everyone. If Mirabella added more shades to the range and changed the wand that would be fantastic.

Eyeko Brow Gel ($25)

This is a brow gel that Shannon from Shaaanxo used to rave about on her Youtube channel all the time and out of the four brow gels I’m mentioning, this one is the most basic. It comes with a small brush which makes application easy, but I find that it has a very wet formula that leaves a sheen on the brows and can tend to rub off any product placed underneath if you’re not careful. This does have a cool-toned tint to it which I like, and I this gel defined my naturals hairs more rather than adding volume to them with fibers like the previous ones. If you’re looking for a brow setter that will just set your hairs in place with a tint of colour and no other frills, then this is for you.

What are your favourite brow gels?

  • I’m using l’oreal brow plumper from the drug store. That one works well but found out you need a light hand to use it. I want to try Benefits though but mine never have my shade in stalk!

  • Great comparisons! I’ve been loving the Gimme Brow and it’s my favourite brow gel at the moment. I’m going to give the Clinique one a go some time. It sounds like it’s work nice for me! Thanks for sharing :)

  • Clinique and Benefit seem to offer the best brow gels! It´s what I´d have guessed from looking at the second picture as well. The wands just look the nicest to apply the gel!

  • I have never used a brow gel before, I usually just fill in my brows using the Good Proof Brow Pencil. I love Benefit’s brow products so I’d love to try the Benefit Gimme Brow gel! x

  • The only one of these I’ve tried is the Benefit Gimme Brow and although I really liked it when I had it I just find it hard to part with that much cash for a brow gel. Though I do think brow gels have come a long way in recent years and there are so many good formulas on the market now that are a lot more than just a clear mascara. I feel like Gimme Brow was one of the first ones to add fibres/volume to your brows but I think when I’m next in the market for a new brow gel I might see what some other brands have brought out now that they’re all jumping on the bandwagon and bringing out different things.

    I have tried the benefit brow gel and I do like it. At the moment I use one for Bourjois, which is okay, but the brush is huge x

  • I’ve been using the Benefit Gimme Brow for when I’m in a rush (basically every morning) it’s so nice to just swoop it on and pow their done. I am due a top up but now I’m swayed to give the Clinique one a try.. :) x
