Pros: affordable, doesn't stick my brows together, fixes my hairs well, i don't feel it on my brows
Cons: huge brush

Hi everyone!

I’m always longing for experiments even when it comes to brow gels. After I used up another brow gel one day, I started my hunt for a new great product. This time I went to the store specifically for the NYX Control Freak Gel.

When it comes to eyebrow gels, I want them to fix my hairs really well and last all day.

Today I’ll go through the NYX Control Freak Eyebrow Gel.

About my brows: They are naturally long, quite coarse, wide and medium-thick. They grow up pretty quickly. Due to their coarseness, it’s a rare occasion that a gel tames them all day long.

About the pros:

  • The packaging is very simple yet quality made. The product comes in a white-black tube. The writing doesn’t fade, even though I use it almost daily. The only thing is that the tube reminds me of a full-size mascara, so it took me quite a while to find this product in the store.

  • On the plus side, it has 9 g of the gel! The volume is the same as with mascaras Smile So, it’s gonna last for a really long time.

  • The consistency is gel-like, which is a plus for me, because it is easier to control the application then. The gel is transparent. It dries out and fixes my hairs very quickly.

  • My brows stay put all day, which surprised me really. I didn’t know it would give me such an effect.

  • It looks natural on my brows. It doesn’t stick them together.

  • It’s extremely long-lasting as I’ve already said. The gel wears all day on me and doesn’t come off with a film towards evening.

  • A little goes a long way.

About the cons:

  • The brush is quite big for my brows and can be a little bit fiddly to work with if you have thin eyebrows.

By the way, I used the NYX Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade here also.

Final thoughts: It’s an amazing colorless eyebrow gel that really delivers on their promise. It’s long-lasting and affordable. This gel edges out all the other products I’ve used so far.


I hope my review was helpful for you.

Thanks for reading, guys!
