I have ( I think ) very nicely shaped eyebrows, I really do put a lot of time into achieving the perfect thickness and shape however I cannot change genetics and can say that I was born with very thin eyebrow hair...The only problem I have with this is the packaging - it deposits too much product unevenly in globs on the wand, and I have to wipe off the brush on the opening every time in order to have the gel evenly distributed

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...I have pretty thick misbehaved eyebrows and this gel keeps them in place ALL DAY and even better if my brow is gelled down in the wrong direction dampening a q tip with water is all it takes to soften up the gel to fix the problem no need to apply more

Does a great job...I am a blond and have relatively good eyebrows they aren't to thin but they are very light so I wanted to define them more so the lady in the store recommended me this product in brunette I thought it was to dark but then she put it on and it was perfect...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

Not greasy at all...It's a good value...Only thing I would complain is that I can't use it during the day because its not as creamy as I need my moisturizer to be especially b/c my skin dries up in winter months but its a really light clean feeling gel feels great when I put it on...I did like both however I'm very weird about my face feeling like there is ANYTHING on it once it is cleaned before I go to bed and I could feel both of these especially since I sleep on silk pillowcases my face would just stick, so I dealt with having a dry face because I preferred being dry over my face sticking to my pillow
