Pros: a little goes a long way, does what it promises, doesn't stick my brows together, fixes my hairs well, i don't feel it on my brows, non-transparent package

Why hello there!

Today I’d like to go through a very interesting product… It’s NYX Control Freak eyebrow gel.

I haven’t used brow gels till the moment I noticed that my brows stuck every which way. The good news is that I have good brows by nature, so I pluck them properly, give them the desired shape and then color them. Before coloring sessions I prefer using an eyebrow pomade, but now I added this gel to my makeup routine also. And I’m very happy that I did.

Out of control brows have you flustered? NYX Professional Makeup's Control Freak Brow Gel offers a new way to tame them fast. The clear formula works well over powder or pencil to seal the deal and make a statement with your brows that you will be proud of. The unique non-sticky formula is comfortable to wear all day and can also be used as a clear mascara that defines, separates and enhances the natural curl of lashes.

Product details:

Size: 9ml

Price: $6

Initially the gel was covered in a protective film, which is good, because it means that nobody ever touched the tube.

The tube itself is white, which is a huge plus! I’m ready to give this product 5 stars right now only due to this non-transparent tube.

I had plenty of gels in colorless packages… And they all looked horrible after the third use… The product gets dirty after mixing with any eyebrow powder or pomade you are using.

The brush wand has the same size as a brush from a mascara. If the product had a color, I wouldn’t dare to use such a tool for application, but it’s colorless and has a matte finish, so I can safely use it for my brows.

By the way, the matte finish is another plus of this gel, because my hairs do not have any ‘greasy’ look.

The gel itself is transparent and reminiscent of water:

The limiter works alright and gives the required amount of the product.

The use:

Apply your usual eyebrow product, be it a brow powder or a brow pencil. Then use the gel to fix the results.

I’d like to say that it doesn’t drag the pigment of your brow product.

Well, what else can I add here… I should probably show you the performance on my brows:

Eyebrow pomade + NYX gel:

Here my brows are recently colored + NYX gel without any additional products:

And here I used the NYX gel only when the brow color was coming off gradually:

I guess it’s visible that my brows look very pretty in all cases and I love the results any way!

The overview:

  • a little goes a long way

  • matte finish

  • no sticky feeling

  • fixes brows well

  • non-transparent package

  • non-scented

Moreover, I’d like to note that it didn’t cause any allergies or side effects in my case. So highly recommended!


Thank you for reading my review! I hope it was helpful for you.

Beautiful brows to everyone!

Feel free to ask me questions if you have any! Smile
