This is the best eyebrow product ever!!! I have had a tube for over a year and still have over 50% left. Seriously a little bit goes a long way! My eyebrows always look neatly done with this.

There is nothing else I want on my eyebrows more than this. It's great for shaping and filling in your brows and is very natural. Some may call it overpriced but a TINNNYYYY bit will last you forever, so it's actually a pretty good value. You definitely don't want to use too much or it will look weird.
It's probably best to put it on your hand and then use an angled brush (like MAC 266) to warm it up, but lately I have been applying it directly to the brush. It's just super pigmented and long lasting and when I put it on my hand I have a really tough time getting it off. Beautiful product!

You can rely on this from dawn to dusk ... and beyond. I tend to rest my palm on my brow throughout the workday and this does not do any brow filling attempts any favors. But with this one, it's all good. Winner product.

Holymoly this LASTS FOREVER! I can swim laps in a chlorinated pool and I still have eyebrows! I can sit for hours in a sauna and it still stays! And yet is doesn't look like I used Sharpies for my eyebrows! If you blend it out it looks completely natural. More natural looking than any pens, pencil, powder I've used. MUFE also makes 7 total shades so you're sure to find one that matches you.
1. Wish it was easier to use. It requires a brush and some time to blend out. However the results are priceless. Because of this I use Stila Waterproof Brow Pen on weekdays and use Aqua Brow for evenings, night outs, weekends, and vacations (pretty much everything else that isn't boring work). I make sure I use this for important stuff so that there's no fading and I don't have to touch up... cause you know AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FO DAT when you're having fun!
2. Sephora (the exclusive retailer for MUFE) only carries 3 of the 7 shades that are made. I use #35 and #40 (Taupe and Brown-Black respectively) so I have to call the NYC store and purchase it over the phone and have it shipped to CA. So no free shipping like Sephora. I still love it regardless.

Best brow kit I have ever used. I bought this on impulse when I received a discount coupon at the department store and I decided to splurge on the brow kit and I don't regret it one second.
It lasts all day and a little goes a loooooong way! It looks really natural and it doesn't make any lines, it just looks like your hair is thicker.
Best money you will ever spend!

My brows have always been my bete noir. Because I was hypothyroid for years, most of the outer halves of my brows are very sparse, so plucking to define would only do so much for them and they really needed filling.
I reached an okay sort of place with either brow powder or a pencil but very rarely could I get *just right* natural but sculpted brows, mostly they were just passable. Also, because the outer halves of my brows are so sparse, for my pencil or powder to fade or smudge off was kind of a disaster.
So the big attraction of Aqua Brow for me was the promise that it would stay put all day and night. I honestly thought I would probably end up returning it, because $20 is steep, and it would have to really blow me away to be worth it. Well I am here to say that I'm keeping my tube. Used with the #10 Sephora brow brush it somehow makes the perfect brow childishly simple. Unlike pencil, it doesn't look like I'm shading in with a product -- as I apply it, it literally looks like my brows are growing thicker. I can't believe how natural it looks, especially since I dubiously ended up with a tube of Ash and it looks so gray and pale in the tube, but it's the perfect shade to fill in my dark-but-sparse brows without making them darker and clownlike.
And it does stay put. I accidentally made the tail of one brow a smidge too long and couldn't rub it off -- had to go for a drop of oil-based cleanser to get it off.
I love this stuff passionately. It will easily last as long as $20 worth of brow pencils, with no sharpening and way better results. Best $20 I've ever spent on makeup.

This thing is amazing and YES it does stay put all day all night even under water...you can easily remove it with makeup remover but other than that it stays put! A little goes a long wayyyy and the eyebrows look great!

I used the former eyebrow corrector, but it was too red. When this came out, I waited, but I missed how long-lasting the product was. So I bought the new lightest shade. It lasts and lasts, which is phenomenal, but I still have to use pencil with it to finish off the tails of my brows and fill in underneath. I just can't get a nice, defined line on the bottom of my brows with it. But I'm okay with that because it makes it all last longer. I have very oily brows, so pencils fade fast and then it's hard to touch up--this makes it all work.

Packaging: The MUFE Aqua Brow comes in a small sized squeeze tube. It is very easy to throw it in your makeup bag and is great for travel.
Pigmentation: I was blown away by the pigmentation. You need the smallest amount, like less than a single drop of water, to completely fill in both of your eyebrows. I use the color 25 Ash and it is perfect. It's a very dark brown that softly adds definition to your eyebrows.
Longevity: This lasts all day long. After it has dried, it doesn't smudge or move whatsoever. I've even tested its waterproof factor in the pool and I can verify that there was very little product that moved or faded.
Price: I bought Aqua Brow at Sephora for $20. This may be a little pricy for some. I'm used to buying Avon Brow Pencils, which are usually around $3-5. However, for the amount of product that you get and the amount of product that you use every day, it is well worth the price. I've had the same tube for about 7 months and I would say that I'm 50% done with it.
Overall: This is my holy grail eyebrow product. I've used pencils and powders before, but this is by far my favorite brow product to use. You only truly need the smallest amount. I will definitely repurchase if I ever finish this tube!

Truly original and great product! I've tried pencils and Anastasia powder duo with a slanted brush and it just looked so obvious. So glad I tried this out, it is a gel you use with a slanted brush, it looks a lot more like actual hair, and it's not budging or fading at all. I really feel like I had a brow life with this as I was finally able to create a realistic arch, one higher than my very low natual one. Changed my whole look. Great going MUFE, you sometimes remind me of why you are as popular as you are.

I love love love this brow formula. It's got just the right amount of pigment, stays on until you want it off, is a decent price, and comes in a cute little tube. I sometimes sleep in my makeup and i am AMAZED at how lovely my eyebrows look in the morning, this sh*t seriously doesn't budge!

Why didn't I hear of this before? It's genius! Aqua Brow is a small tube that contains a waterproof gel formula. It's lightweight but has quite a lot of pigment to it, doesn't feel watery.
I've previously used:
• Eyeshadow (MAC Concrete or BB Espresso, wet and/or dry with an angled 208 or 266 brush - can look a little too obvious at times since I don't have much brows to begin with). Doesn't last well throughout the day.
• Fluidline gel liner with the MAC angled 266 brush: doesn't stay on during the day.
• Brow pencil (MAC Spiked/Stud): looks too "clumpy" on my skin and too harsh even if I blend it. Doesn't last.
• All the former ones combined in different ways. What I was looking for was something that stays on the skin during the day and doesn't disappear or form small 'clumps' on the skin. This is it!
It does take a while to get used to when applying it, but it's definitely worth it. I use it with a small angled synthetic brush (I've found that the natural hair ones aren't that great in terms of evening out the product) and use short strokes with very little product. Don't use too much, a little goes such a long way. I dispense a little of the product and work it into the brush (just on the nozzle) before applying. The play time isn't very long so try to work fast. When it dries, it dries! In my experience, it's not great for layering as it can clump a little.
And yes, it stays on even though drizzle or a long day at work!
I use the #40 which is a ashy dark blackened brown - no red in it. (Hooray!) I have black/brown hair and fair skin (NC15), and this is a perfect match.

Prior to discovering Aqua Brow I was using the Benfit Brow-Zing kit to groom, shade and tame my brows. But, curiousity and a ton of glowing reviews got the best of me and I ordered Aqua Brow online, which was a feat, because it's rather hard to find MUFE products in the UK.
After doing plenty of research, I bought the shade #20 'Light Brown'. I have very dark hair and brows but my personal experiences with using 'dark' versions of brow products have left me looking like Cruella de Vil and made me look like I've filled my brows in with a black Sharpie! Thankfully, the light brown shade is a great match, and I'd advise anyone to go one shade lighter than what you think you are, because it does dry slightly darker.
Now, MUFE claim that Aqua Brow is waterproof, and it really is! I've worn this during rain showers and to my utter amazement my brows are still in place perfectly! I love the gel-texture, I can easily spread a tiny dot using my MAC 266 or Real Techniques angled brush and quickly fill my brows in, although it does dry fast so you have to work quick. It effortlessly tames my brows, gives great shape and most importantly, lasts all day. I'm a huge fan of the packaging too; a little tube with a tiny nozzle hole which means I can easily control how much product I want, will definitely keep repurchasing.

This is definitely my HG. I have been searching for the perfect eye brow product for years. Pencils, creams, and powders all seemed to be either not the right color (too dark or too light) or I was afraid to accidentally run my finger over my brow and take it off.
I have very dark brown, almost black hair so it has always been hard to find the right color. Aqua Brow #40 is the answer. It must be applied with a brush. I use Joey New York's State of the Arch double ended brush which is the best as it allows me to only squeeze out a tiny amount of the MUFE Aqua Brow and define my brows perfectly. Check out ebay if you want that brush. You only need a tiny amount and it is definitely long lasting as I have fallen asleep and awoken still with perfect brows. I do not mind the little tube as it allows me to squeeze out just the right amount and because I use so little, this tube should last forever making the initial cost not really a concern. It is worth the money.
I once heard that as far as make up is concerned, it is the three "e's" that should always be done: eyebrows, eyeliner, and eyelashes. Try this, you will not be disappointed, but make sure that you go directly to the MUFE website to decide on the right color for your skin, eyes, and hair as some stores only stock a limited color palette.

I have been a loyal user of brow powders and brow pencils (the ones from MAC especially) but I wanted to try something else that was longer lasting and natural looking. This product comes in a little squeeze tube and you need a brush to apply this so if you're looking for something you can carry around, this probably wouldn't be for you. But then again, this is truly water proof and stays on all day so you wouldn't need to reapply this throughout the day at all.
I got this in shade #25 Ash. Which is the darkest colour they have. Upon initial application, I felt that this was a little bit lighter than I wanted but then once I saw the finished product I feel that it's the right colour for me. For reference, I use MAC brun shadow for powder or MAC spiked brow pencil for my brows. If you are a brunette, this will work for you.
I really like this formula because it dries to a matte finish and looks really soft and natural. No harsh lines! which can look super fake especially for brows.
I use MAC 208 small angled brow brush for application and the result is fantastic!
I am very much into my brows and feel that I have tried quite a few brow products thats out there- lancome, MAC, shiseido, Shu uemura, and all kinds of low end drug store stuff too. And I can see this becoming another long term product I can become very loyal to- my HG for brows was MAC spiked brow pencil for years.
I highly recommend this if you are comfortable with using a gel product as well as a brush to do your brows and also if you need something totally water proof, this is it.
UPDATE: okay i still like this but i took off a lippy because it does fade and smudge throughout the day. My hair is parted on the side and the side where my brow is covered by my bangs (I guess my hair is brushed up against my face and my brow) gets all faded and patchy. This is weird because i never had this happen with none-waterproof products (MAC spiked brow pencil) but it's happening with this supposedly waterproof product. I still like this but it's not perfect.

I am mad with SA who suggested me to get #20, way toooo light for NC37-40ish like me! But i know what I want is dark brown and that's what I asked, unfortunately I forgot the number! so i'd been deceived and convinced that this color is dark brown! they got no sample as well of #20 hence I didn't manage to swatch it in store. Horrible SA who's only after commission specially here where SA are well known for reaching target. Urgh! I want to cry but I can't get it back, they don't do exchange for this kind of stuff. But anyway, about the product it's lovely and will get the right shade next time (although it means splashing AED199 again!)and will not listen to SA, let them fly around like flies on shite. LOL.

NW10-15 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
I bought this product in Shade #10 from Sephora, which is a light ashy brown. I tend to need a brow product that will 1. match my brow color without being too red 2. hide a patch of no hair that I have on one of my brows and 3. hold my brow hairs in place all day.
This product, although a bit expensive, does all 3. I love it for the color match, which I have had a hard time finding. But the fact that it hides my hairless patch well and holds all day is great. Even my favorite drugstore pencils that are a color match (Revlon Colorstay wax brow pencil, and Maybelline Expert Wear pencils in Blonde) can't meet all 3 of these expectations.
EDIT: The real difference with this is I can create very smooth edge with an angled brush and this liquid, and it dries and stays ALL day and night. You can fall asleep in your makeup and your brows will be perfect when you wake up. I really like applying this with my Sonia Kashuk bent liner brush because I can draw long or short brush strokes like hairs.

this stuff is too difficult to put on. I suppose with some practice I'd get better at it, but it's not worth my time. maybelline define-a-brow is way easier to apply than aqua brow, and it also performs better in my opinion.
this product might work better for people who need to add tint to their brows, or to fill in sparse brows, and the texture will keep them tamed. however, my issue is that I have short eyebrows (they're too far apart) so I try to slightly extend the length inward. this is really difficult to do without it looking really weird. so far, I've found that I can only pull this off using eyebrow pencils.

As a woman who has only ONE non-negotiable makeup item (brow color), MUFE's Aqua Brow is my HG brow product. I have dark brown hair and purchased the darkest shade Sephora offers ... #25 Ash. It is a great match for me however it is not the darkest color Aqua Brow. MUFE offers more shades and Sephora only sells 3 of them. I dislike brow pencils as I guess I'm not good enough at making them look realistic. I dislike brow powders as they are easy to smudge. I love that Aqua Brow is truly waterproof. I've worn this while swimming and being in the steamy sauna at the gym and it stays put perfectly until i remove it with cleansing oil. Best application is with a very very stiff slanted eye brow brush. That's fine to me because I like mine hard and stiff... speaking of eye brow brushes, of course ;) Anyway, if you use a brush that's too soft you'll have problems controlling a precise application. The tube has an enormous amount of product considering you use sooooo little each time. This is a great product for filling in any sparse areas you have and making your brows look fierce, whether you go for the natural look or let your diva side come out. I highly recommend and will certainly repurchase. MUFE has a true winner with this product!

i have to say i was really excited about this product and while it works well for me, i wouldn't actually purchase (I had gotten a sample to try). the application is just not easy and i dont feel i have control in the shape i want to give my brows. it also feels kind of sticky so i'm not crazy about the texture.
i'm not sure if we're allowed to say but my HG is still the tarte brow mousse.
