REVISITED | NYX Eyebrow Gel in Brunette Review

September 16, 2014

I have the perfect set of brows! Well, that’s just me dreaming, lol. I’m always dreaming of perfect brows eversince I developed liking on makeup. However, in my case, it took me years to finally find the perfect shape for myself. The way to even tame and shape them was another story.

So I would probably skip taking my blush with me but not my eyebrow tools. That’s how sacred my brow relationship is. A well-groomed and shaped eyebrows can really make a difference in your face. I tried tons to be honest from pencils to powders. But since I do sweat heavily during summer and maybe less during rainy days but powders or pencils even set with brow mascara tend to disappear on my face after sometime.

And so I was originally eyeing on Makeup Forever (MUFE) Aqua Brow,  but then rumor has it that there is a dupe out there from a brand called NYX. I’ve had success with other NYX products long before they opened their very first store here in the Philippines.  Then one day while browsing at online makeup store called Digital Traincase, I spotted that they now have the NYX Eyebrow Gel. Also, Digital Traincase ships really fast like they always do (I bought stuff from them few years ago).

Now ladies, you know the drill: I must get my hands on it. This retails for Php 380.00 if you go to their website plus shipping fee (SF).

• What it is: Highly pigmented brow gel.

• What it does: Fills and shapes brow providing a long-wear result.

• Why makeup junkies love it: The smudge–free, waterproof formula seals brows in place.

• How to use: Using an angled brush, dip into gel and outline the perfect brow. Fill in sparse areas and blend with a clean spoolie brush.

This product comes in different shades namely:

  • Blonde

  • Chocolate

  • Brunette

  • Espresso

  • Black

If you are curious about what makes up this product, here’s some information I picked up from their site.

INGREDIENTS / INGRÉDIENTS: Water/Aqua/Eau, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Isododecane, Isohexadecane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Phenyl Trimethicone, Silica, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Beeswax/Cera Alba/Cire d'Abeille, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax/Cera Carnauba/Cire de Carnauba, Dimethicone, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, PEG/PPG-19/19 Dimethicone, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Ethylhexyl Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Triethyl Citrate. MAY CONTAIN / PEUT CONTENIR (+/-):   Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499).

After trying this product at once, I instantly fell in love with it. I am using the shade Brunette and while it is not an exact match for my colored hair, I prefer this over the Blonde shade which I also purchased after a week. You don’t really need a lot, just squeeze a very small amount either  from the tube or put some in your hands. It blends to your brow hairs really nice and looks natural on me.
If you are just starting to get to know your brows, I’d say this can be tricky to apply as it dries quickly but you’ll have enough time to blend them, believe  me.

I also think the packaging is genius because it is sanitary not to double dip your tools if you know what I mean. It lasts a really long time, I’d say eight (8) hours  even with my sweaty and combination face. That’s just super duper fantastic!

I don’t see any cons on this product to be honest. I think I found my HG eyebrow product!

Overall Rating:

5 Lipsticks

Buy Again: Yes! Yes! Yes!

How are your brows? I hope you get to give them more love with the NYX Brow Gel.
