I really love this product. I was at MAC looking for a concealer when the girl assisting me complimented the shape of my brows and suggested I put this over top of my Chanel eyebrow pencil. She tried it on me and I had a moment in store because it was so flawless! Made my brows look amazing, shaped them perfectly and lasted for so long. I think I'm in love! It looks like it will last for an age as well, very happy she suggested this.

I love this. It really cleans up your look. I use it before adding any pencil/filler - once I've used the gel to brush my brows into their shape, I have a good idea of what needs filling along my natural brow shape. Doing it before pencil/filler also keeps the gel and wand clean! I would say it gives your brows a hold of around 8/10, it's not crispy, it's soft, but it does the job - the brows don't move around unless force is applied to them. I do like to put on a thorough amount to make sure it does its job. I think it's well worth the $30 - given it's an occasional purchase. I'd suggest trying it in store and wearing for a day to see what you think if you're not sure - won me over.

This is my HG brow gel and I always repurchase it. I always get it in clear and apply it last after filling in my eyebrows and it pretty much keeps my hair in place all day without being stiff. It is quite pricy for a clear eyebrow get but it lasts me year of daily use so is worth it for me.

Lately I've been very obsessed with my eyebrows. I think eyebrows can make or break your look. I used to never care about my brows but since I started wearing foundation, I just felt the need to groom my brows. I used to only fill them in with a brown eyeshadow, specifically Urban Decay's Secret Service, then leave the house. However, halfway through the day, I would catch a glimpse of my brows and the hairs are pointed down. I figured I needed something to keep the hairs in place! I bought this at a MAC counter at The Bay for around $20CDN in the shade Show Off for my black hair. It's pretty pricey since some may argue that you can just use a brown mascara or a clear mascara. I personally haven't tried using mascara for my brows because all my mascaras are darkest black. I may try it when I run out of this. Overall, I really like this brow gel because it locks in my brows in place and gives them a lighter tint. I just wish it's not so expensive though! But I guess it will be worth it because this tube will last me years? We'll see!

I have repurchased this so many times, 100% my HG brow product. Thank you mac for gracing us with such an item.
It gets quite grubby over time, but it lasts aaaages.

I use the clear version over bare eyebrows.
Just perfect. It keeps your brows in place in the shape you want all day.
One of the best MAC products ever!
Clean the brush after apply (with a tissue) Otherwise the gel in the bottle will turn "dirty looking" ...

2. Doesn't flake
3. You can see how much is left
1. Smells alcoholic after awhile
2. Tube looks dirty inside with use

I used to use this all the time. I've been using pencils lately but, since I've gone blonde I don't want my brows any darker than they are. I've been thinking of buying again cause it does so well.

My quest for a brow tamer may be over. I bought this in clear and really like that it goes on with out a mess, dries quickly but doesn't leave my brows feeling crispy and it doesn't leave my brows looking like they are glued together. In fact, they have a flexible feel to them but they stay put throughout the day.
I've tried several other gels and a few waxes and they were either too firm or didn't hold at all. The other problem I've had with other products is flakiness late in the day. I don't really need to have a dandruff look with my eyebrows!
This doesn't flake, looks nice and holds from early morning to whenever I wash my face.
The tube is also clear so I can see how much product is left and from the looks of it, this tube should last for a good while. I will probably repurchase when it runs out.

WOW! I love this - I'm just so annoyed I never discovered this gem of a product years ago.
Just recently I had become unhappy with my brows so I thought I would buy some products to try and remedy this. I purchased the MAC eyebrow pencil and this and they have been the best makeup purchases I have ever made. Using both has just 'pulled together' my look and sets off the rest of my makeup so well.
I initially wanted to buy the MAC eyebrow wax (MAC Brow Finisher) but my local MAC counter doesn't stock it. Previously I had been against using a gel as I thought it would be noticeable and would make my eyebrows look 'crispy' or wet but the sales girl talked me into buying the gel and I'm so happy she did.
I used to lightly go over my brows with the eyebrow pencil then apply the gel. However, I now prefer to use the gel to get my eyebrows into a nice shape then use the pencil and finish with another application of gel.
This gel holds my eyebrows in shape all day without flaking and looks very natural - can't even tell I have gel on, just makes my brows look so groomed and perfect. Even if I don't use the pencil to fill my eyebrows in just using the gel alone improves the look of my brows so much. And I find that using it with pencil makes the pencil blend in better and look way more natural.
Thank you MAC!!
