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!

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.

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.

I love this brow gel! I have very unruly eyebrows and had tried several products to tame them but after trying this I won't buy anything else. I work on the boardwalk during the summer and this stuff stays on all day even if I sweat. You have to be careful though because the gel will flake if you use too much. I highly recommend this stuff but don't bother using it as a mascara. It did nothing for my eyelashes.

I have thick, full, brows I've always loved but like to neaten up with a brow type gel. I don't do any filling in nor do I tweeze or trim, so I need something to hold them in place.

I find this works very well because unlike some other clear mascaras and brow wax or hair gel, this does not leave gaps. Once applied then brushed, there aren't clumps of brow hair stuck together. It provides a more cohesive look and for the price its a steal. I don't often see it in stores so I use hair spray/gels or brow wax when I run out but as soon as I find it again I remember why I liked it so much. Also no brow flakes!

I've never used it on lashes so cannot comment on that.

I have thick, unruly brows and this $1 gem really helps keep them in place, all day. When I run out of the brow side, I just use the eyelash side on my brows. Have already repurchased this twice. Nice job Elf!
