Loveeee this product! I have thick eyebrows and love the full eyebrow look but it's a pain to keep it tame. I was browsing through target makeup isle looking for a clear mascara and found this gem for $1. Sometimes I use it as a mascara just to get rid that powder eyeshadow on my lashes when I go for "no makeup look". I'm on my 2nd tube and planning to buy more,this is a HG for me.
Wow I just love the packaging first because its so easy to use. The feel of the product is great. Using just the brow is fine on day I don't want to line mine. For only 1 dollar it's a such find!!
This is certainly $1 brow gel lol. At that price, one really cannot complain. It's priced as a throwaway tube of brow gel, and really that's what it is in my case.
I'm on the search for the perfect brow gel. I find Anastasia to be a bit watery, and I feel like there has to be something better out there, especially considering the cost of Anastasia.
The E.L.F. one came highly recommended, and when I saw it was only $1, I immediately picked it up without hesitation. Upon first couple of uses I thought this stuff was great.
About a week into owning it, I noticed that I am going through product really quickly, but again at $1 a tube, who really cares.
I don't use a clear gel on my lashes, so I actually started using both sides for my brows. I can't really tell the difference, they both seem like brow gel to me.
Anyway, after having this product for maybe a month, I'm finding it REALLY difficult to work with. It is so gunky. When I take the product out of the tube there are just all these clumps of gel, and the clumps are then on my brows and I have to come and come the product through just to make my brows look somewhat normal.
The product always leaves a film too now, where all of the sudden my eyebrows will have a gray cast. I have very dark, almost black brows. I notice the gel flaking all day long, and it even causes my eye shadow to cake, because the consistency is so unworkable that I guess the gel just ends up everywhere.
At first I thought this was an amazing product, but the love only really lasted for maybe two weeks. The product didn't take long to "turn" and it's so clumpy and gross now, it definitely isn't doing me any service.
I will finish the tube, but I wont repurchase. I guess I am back to my Anastasia until I find something better :/
I'm on my third tube of this! I love this for my brows. It keeps the hairs in place all day and is very, very inexpensive especially compared to all the other brow gels. I use the mascara side sometimes, but I find that after awhile my eyelashes shed a clear residue that is left behind from it and it's basically useless. After the brow side is used up it is usually colored by the product that I use to darken my brows. It becomes less transparent and it doesn't look sanitary so I throw it away. The mascara part usually goes in the trash while there is still 2/3 of the product left. For a dollar you really can't pass this up if you want a brow gel. You may have to repurchase it on a monthly basis but it's only $12 a year as opposed to the other +$20 brow gels on the market that last just as long!
Love this product for my brows. The mascara absolutely sucks for my lashes but it is good to use to set my brow hairs with since i ran out of the brow gel. and it was 1 dollar! you can't beat that. im gonna stock up on these
One Dollar? This works like a dream! I actually use both sides for brow (don't really have a need for a clear mascara). The brow end has a shorter, stumpier brush which is more ideal for brows, but the mascara sides works fine, too. This sets my brows just fine. I don't feel the need to purchase high end brow gels after using this. I may try the Maybelline clear Great Lash? But for $1 -- this is a very good deal.
UPDATE: So, I tried the Maybelline Great Lash Clear and I will stick with the Maybelline. The brush is smaller for more precise application. It doesn't leave my eyebrows as hard and crusty as the ELF does. ELF is fine for $1, but if you want a better product for a few more dollars, go with the Maybelline. I like the packaging better, too, and it seems that it will last me a lot longer.
I bought this simply to keep my brows in place, but I was excite to see that I was getting lso a clear mascara for my lashes. I LOVED it. It held my lashes in place for most of the day and applying it to my lashes looked like I applied regular dark mascara just without the clumps. My biggest disappointment about this product was that there was too little product. Within 3 weeks, only little would come out. Because of the cheap pricing, I wouldn't mind buying this in bundles, but they really need to make this in larger quantity.
Pros: holds brows in place, easy to use, sets brows, good product Cons: little product
I picked this item up late last year after seeing it in my local Dollar Tree (Target is a bit away). I was looking for another Ds brand,maybe maybelline clear mascara but couldn't find it. So I was happy when I show this,plus you can't beat a dollar. I've tried a Avon brand...its ok & love the Anastaia brow set. This is a niffty product as it contains the brow gel & clear mascara. The brow gel works pretty good & my brows stay in place for the day. Only thing I don't like is it goes on kinda thick,so you'll have to be careful to not "load the brush" too much.(Anatasia goes on smooth;) And the fact I can see the color its picked up from my brows. The mascara is nice,I use it kinda as a primer sometime or to grow my lashes in place before I apply reg mascara. On days I don't wear anything this works as making my lashes look nice & groomed . I wish there was a bit more in the containers,but hey for a buck you can't complain. I've already picked up a couple,just to have.
Great dual purpose item from E.L.F. for a buck. I love that the tube is see-thru so you know exactly how much is left in it or how dark or contaminated a side is getting. This company really is on the ball.
I've used the one side for my brows to keep them finished neatly, with and without eyebrow makeup. The obvious downside is that the wand will pick up color from your brow makeup and redeposit it back into the tube. It's a gel that's more on the drier side and I can use the mascara type brush to comb my brows in the direction I want. If there's any flaking I can just comb it out with the same brush, no problem.
The other side is labeled for your eyes so you can't mistake the two, a big plus if you do decide to use it for both your eyes and brows. I have coated my lashes as a final coat to see if it prevents flaking and smudging. This does seem to do the trick in a pretty decent way. I've tried it on a variety of mascaras, even fell asleep, and found my mascara intact. Frankly, I was surprised. I haven't tested it on all of my mascaras yet, so I'm not sure if it really will work in that manner.
I find using it just as a gloss for my lashes doesn't really accomplish much. I need more than it can offer for my short, blonde lashes. It doesn't have the capacity to lengthen, volumize or darken in any way.
I don't find it clumpy or wet at all. I've also had my tube now for a few months and it's still wet and nothing dried out, so it's lasting a pretty long time for what it cost me.
I'll repurchase when it's time. I think it's this is a good makeup staple in my makeup toolbox that I use daily.
