Pros: color selection, longevity
Cons: it doesn’t suit those with sparse brows

Greetings to all those reading my post!

Today I’d like to tell you about my bad romance with the popular nowadays Bobby Brown - Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up. Applause to the hero of the review:

As you’ve already guessed from the naming, the product is a gel or a cream gel to set and color brow hairs.



A cream-gel formula that effortlessly defines and fills in brows, while controlling and shaping them.


PRICE: $28.00

SIZE: 0.14 oz/ 4 g

SPENDING: a little bit goes a long way



The product comes packaged in a plastic tube that looks like a sample of a mascara:

As for the color selection here they offer the following shades:


A rich red brown.


A brownish red.


A blond brown.


A rich warm brown.


A dark ash brown

As you can see there’s something to be puzzled about. Below we’ll speak only about the shade that I chose for myself.



I opted for this rich red brown shade, no matter how terrifying it might seem, especially taking into consideration the fact that I’m a blonde.

Actually, I needed a product to wear with my evening makeup, so I really wanted it to be rather bright. In the swatch the color seemed nice and wearable. It looked as though there was no red pigment to it at all. The shade is called Rich Brown and this is exactly what it is in real life. No red color.

As for the pigmentation, it seems to be kind of a hybrid of medium and sheer coverage. But that’s more an advantage for me, so I can be sure that I’ll never overdo it or apply too much.

The inner stopper will never let the superfluous amount of the formula sit on the brush when you take it out, which is also very pleasant.

As for the gel itself, well, it’s easy to apply to my hairs as well as skin, which is again a good pro. Neat results is the most important factor.

The brush of the product is pretty convenient and small. No frills about it:



It’s good. The product stays on my brows the entire day and in general I even had a chance to test it out by rubbing my eyebrows and nothing bad happened with the formula. Yet at the same time, the product is easy to wash off with water.



Unfortunately, for me this buy turned out to be rather useless. In my case I can’t use it alone, even though I still believe that it’s wrong to blame the product for not taming my naturally sparse brows.


I was hoping to get the effect of bushy and natural-looking brows with it, but in vain.

And when I use this gel solo, my brows look literally funny then. They look as though they are poor and sloppy - it feels like the product accentuates all my brow disadvantages, which are mostly in their shape and thickness. Have a look at it yourself:

It feels like my brows are screaming: “Look how pathetic we are!”


All in all, if your brows aren’t thick and shaped, like mine, then it’s a waste of time to hope on this product. It won’t work wonders with sparse brows ever.


If you don’t care about its price tag and money splurging, then you can buy this gel as a treat and pair it with some other eyebrow products. Here it works pretty well, I should say:


  • it keeps my brows in check

  • it makes them look voluminous (which is so rare, because usually eyebrow pencils make them too flat), creating beautiful natural careless results

  • the staying power is on fleek

  • it doesn’t look red or anything of the kind.


In these photos I used this brow gel along with a brow pencil from another brand:

All in all, here the results are much better. My brows don’t look pathetic anymore, comparing to when I used the Bobbi Brown gel solo.



My dear friends, as for me, I doubt that I’d ever buy this product again. Not because of it being bad or anything, but just because there’s no difference if I wear this gel on my brows, or use the one that’s cheaper. I don’t see any point in splurging on it. I can even dare to assess it with 4 stars and I really believe that my rate is objective:

  • the gel makes my brows expressive;

  • it brings some color to them,

  • it sets my brow hairs

  • it stays on well

  • it doesn’t provoke any allergic or any other reactions,


- I can’t see any point in taking off more stars, because my natural eyebrows aren’t of good shape or thickness. And even though I assess it with 4 stars, I still can’t recommend the product for purchasing. You can find a better eyebrow powder or pomade cheaper (after all, they are more important in brows filling in, in comparison with the gel). I think that a more affordable brow gel can also set the brows and keep them in check as well...

  • Bobbi Brown eyebrow gel, is it worth $28?

    Hey there! Once I decided to visit a makeup store to buy an illuminating face primer from Bobbi Brown but it was temporarily out of stock. I had to join the wait list with 10 more people ahead of me. At the same time, the price tag of that primer was too hefty.
