So… I have a bit of an eyebrow obsession. Ever since we left the era of skinny, arched brows behind and ushered in the era of thick, straight ones, for the first time in my life, I felt like I was naturally #blessed with what just so happened to be trendy—and I was determined to make the most of it while it lasts.
Accordingly, over the past few years, I’ve tried every tinted brow gel I could get my hands on in order to make my already caterpillar-y brows as thick and feathered as possible. Yes, I’m also into pencils and powders; but for my particular brow shape and texture, tinted gels are my brow product of choice.
When I’m evaluating the quality of a tinted brow gel, I look for a few things: Does it provide long-lasting hold? Does the formula adhere to my brow hairs without getting all over my face? Does it look natural? Is there a decent range of shades? The best brow gels meet three or four of these requirements.
I’ve tried 50+ brow gels over the years, but the following eight are the only ones I’ve continued to reach for. Keep scrolling to discover the best brow gels, according to one of Byrdie’s most brow-obsessed editors.
