I love this product because it's perfect for a quick go to application that makes my (already shaped) eyebrows look like I spent way more time on them then I did ;) my only issue is that the wand gets the same type of goop on the end as mascara does, but the wand is a lot smaller which is perfect for arching eyebrows and for applying more or less pressure for more or less product...I have tried the Anastasia brow gel and while I really liked it, found the brush a little messy and the product a little thick - this is the complete opposite, the smaller brush head allows for a more precise application and the right amount of product is applied
