NYX Eyebrow Gel

NYX just released a new eyebrow gel and the hype is that it is highly-pigmented and keep brows in shape for hours. Also it is very affordable at US $7.

We, Canadians, are always late in getting the new beauty products and I, of course, got mine off ebay.


NYX Eyebrow Gel


There are 5 shades available and the shade I picked is EBG04 Espresso


the eyebrow gel comes in a squeeze tube packaging. Very similar to the Makeup Forever Aqua Gel which comes in more shades available but at CAD $24.






Espresso is a dark brown shade. Let me tell you, the swatch above is from a 1/4 of pea-sized product. So, really you only need the tiniest bit to do both brows.


How I apply is to squeeze a tiny bit of product onto the back of my hand. Then I use an angled brow brush to apply. I think this shade matches my brow quite nicely. Not too dark and it just has a bit of deep brown in it. 

I am very impressed with the product. It is super highly-pigmented and it is perfect for the hot summer months as this is waterproof and doesn't smudge. It does set fast so I usually do one brow at a time and move on to the next. 

This is so affordable at US $7 and I'm sure when it arrives in Canada, it would be around CAD $10 but still a very good deal for a nice eyebrow product.

What is your current favorite eyebrow product?

  1. I have never used an eyebrow gel. This intrigues me! I definitely should be better about filling in my brows so I will keep an eye out for this.

    1. I have only clear brow gel before and this is my first colored gel. I am pretty impressed with how long this last on my brows all day long.

  2. this actually looks surprisingly natural on you despite the pigment intensity! I think I still prefer an eyebrow pencil over something needing a brush simply for efficiency purposes in my all-too-rushed mornings

    1. I usually use my Lioele Autobrow pencil to fill in my brows but lately want my brows to look fuller and this, together with the Benefit Gimme Brows are my current brow combo. This does take a bit more time though and I only do this when I have enough time in the morning.

  3. I use the MUFE gel so I have to get my hands on this...I am going to have to order it online since I'm in Toronto and I know I won't be able to find it either!

    1. From what I read on the reviews, this is very similar to the MUFE. When you do get the NYX one, will be looking forward to read your review on the comparison of the two.
