I was recommended this product by a MUA in MAC. It is very ok, it works ok to keep eyebrows in place and doesn't leave a residue on the brows. I find it does make my eyebrows fall out a tiny bit though. I think this product is over priced for what it does but it is a Mac product. Next time I will purchase the brow set gel.
I have this in clear and it's an OK brow product. Nothing to run out and buy, but if you're looking for a brow wax that is easy to use and portable, this is your guy.
It holds my brows in place, but it's not a super strong hold. I still have to fidget with my brows throughout the day because my hair messes them up.
I like this, but honestly, it's not that great. It's pretty heavy on my brows and doesn't really keep them set. They're thin, but pretty unruly. I think this would work for someone with more coarse brow hair, but unfortunately, it just doesn't do it for me. I've had this in clear for so long, and it's still pretty full. If I didn't pay so much for it, I would probably throw it out or give it away.
I'll give it two lippies instead of one, just because I could see how it would work for someone else.
EDIT: So, I've recently started to use this again and I've found that it actually works pretty well. Since I let my sparse brows start to grow out, I've found more of a use for it. It's not perfect, because I still think a brow gel would work better, but still, it does what it says for the most part. I don't know if I would buy it again, I think I would definitely give a brow gel like MAC's Brow Set a shot first.
I got this as a gift. It's not a very necessary product unless you have unruly eyebrows. It's pretty basic, though. So there's really no reason to buy it from MAC, which is quite a pricey brand. A drugstore brand would probably work just as well. I'll finish what I have, even though I don't seem to use it often. But I will not buy it again.
I use this product with powder and yes it does smudge as I have oily skin throughout the day. Ive searched and i still cannot find a miracle product that wont smudge! However using the brow finisher with the shadow and on top of that adding a dust of MAC's prep + prime translucent powder helped my brows stay in place. And if I got oily again I would re dust. The prep + prime translucent powder is a life saver for those with oily skin. can surely save your make up :)
I started to use this as a way to set my brows and for that purpose it does set them beautifully. It doesnt dry down to a almost crunchy texture like brow gels can, it has good hold, comfortable feel and most importantly it doesn't look shiny or wet.
However one day I was wearing bold, in your face RED lip and before I even left the house it was bleeding like crazy. :[ I was just about to take it off when I saw my clear mac brow wax. It was like the makeup gods were telling me this would work....
So I started to line just outside the lip-line and it when on smooth and while you would think a wax texture would be uncomfortable on your skin, I couldn't feel the product. Also, you couldn't see a weird finnish. It truly disappeared This product was like a force field, refusing to let the smallest amount of that red out of line. It was amazing. and kept my lipstick in check all day.
If I wouldn't by it again as a brow set, I would definitely repurchase for using it as a reverse lip liner.
This is one of those staple products that may not be particularly glamorous, but is a necessary part of one's routine. Nothing was keeping my wayward brows in place, and I've gone through it all--brow powders, pencils, gels, etc. MAC's Brow Finisher does the trick, you just have to be careful not to over apply or else it'll look like you ran a glue stick over your brows. I brush my brows, apply a little of the finisher, fill in with brow pencil, reapply a little more of the finisher, then do a final brush. Comes in a thin twist-up tube, allowing precise application without snapping any of it off. I always gently wipe it off on a towel after every use so no gunk reforms on it. Since it comes in a plastic container it's Back 2 MAC-able, which is always a plus. I took a lippy off because it *is* a bit overpriced for something that's really nothing more than wax, but it's not like I want to risk putting something like lip balm on my brows.
this product does the same thing as wax. it is wax.
i really like it because it comes in a twisty pen. it is so easy to apply. it does keep my eyebrows in place but they seem to move around after 2 hours. i have another wax that doesnt do this but i prefer this because of the ease of application.
i have it in the clear version and i bought it in america so it was dirt cheap for me, but expensive if i purchased it in australia. i have tried the brow set and dont know that i prefer this one. the amount they give you is alot so this should last for a really long time.
big fan! will repurchase when im in the states again
They've discontinued this product in colors, but still have it in clear - which is fine by me! I love the ease of use with this product, I love that it keeps my brows soft and pliable. It lasts forever, too! However 4 lippies because my brow hairs don't stay in place. I have to swipe my finger over my brows every now and again during the day to get them back in place, but I still really enjoy using this product and will purchase again.
i got this in a tinted color (forgot the name) and it was great until they discontinued it so i bought the clear version. it's just not the same. it left this wear white flim on my brows which was not cool! PLEASE bring back the tinted ones!
