The fibers really made it look full and it filled them in great, I have darkish eyebrows but dirty blonde hair, I got it in the shade light/medium but I feel like I couldve pulled off medium/dark so once mine runs off im going to buy it in the shade medium/dark and see which shade I liked better on myself...Personally I have found that this stuff works even better if I comb my brows, fill in the sad little blank spots with some brow powder and then go over them with this GIMME BROW and they look incredible, I have brows like I never thought to be possible

I got natural brows that can become unruly , I used to depend on sub standard drugstore clear mascara and I first balked at the price and went with the Sephora version but it left a shiny coat and glued down my brows in a way I found a bit claustrophobic and I promptly exchanged for the Anastasia brow gel...However its really difficult to get the product from the tube onto the brush, so much so that the first time I used it I thought there was nothing in the tube... it seems like a design flaw, but I really like the product so I'm hoping if I get it again I won't have the same problem

Does a great job...I like this for those days I want to lighten up my face a little - give a natural sun kissed highlight effect and can soften up my browns if I have put on a bit more brow pencil than I had anticipated and even looks good on my browns if I want to skip the pencil...I was hoping this brow gel could be my single eyebrow product (I was using loreal brow plumper which has a much smaller brush) however, the large brush makes it hard to coat my eyebrows and shape them in an attractive manner.So, I started using this to tint the inner part of my eyebrow and I use the dipbrow pomade on the outer half of my brows, its a great combo
What it is:
A tinted brow gel.

What it is formulated to do:
For those with thin, sparse brows, this unique, botanical formula gives the appearance of fuller, thicker brows. The combination of cream and gel effortlessly defines and fills in the look of brows while controlling and shaping without flaking or fading.
