Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel

For the longest time I've been wanting to try a brow gel. I don't have crazy or unruly brows, but I thought that a brow gel might make my brows look more polished. I was also thinking that this could be a product I could use on its own to just brush through my brows and move on to the next thing on a day that I'm in a hurry.

I ended up buying the Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel in Granite. The first thing I was hoping was that I chose the right shade and I definitely did. It doesn't have red undertones, which I was happy about because I find that to look really wrong on my face.

I haven't tried any other brow gels to compare it to, but I think this has a really good formula. It's not too thick or too thin, it keeps my brow hairs in place all day, but doesn't look unnatural. I find that it does help to polish my brows off but that I do have to be careful because it's easy for it to get messy. I generally keep a q-tip handy because I always have clean up to do after I apply this. For me, the brush is too long and too wide and I always end up with product on the skin around my brows, which I don't like.

As far as it being a stand alone product, I'd say it's so-so. Technically, I guess, it's not meant for this, so I can't judge it too hard for this, but it doesn't apply very well on its own. I've worn it alone, but it takes a little longer to get any shape to your brows so I'd definitely stick with the traditional way of shaping and filling in your brows first and then using this as a final step to seal it all in.

Overall, I think the product itself is really nice, but I'm not too impressed with the spoolie. I definitely want to try other Anastasia brow products in the future, though. Let me know your favorites!

  1. I expected a better gel from the queen of the brow products. As soon as I saw the photo, I thought to myself "that brush is way too big". Glad I read your review as I am thinking of buying some Anastasia brow products. Now I know I won't be going for this one. I think in terms of brow gel Benefit still has the best one. X

  2. I've heard good things about Benefit's brow gel though I've never tried it- in the past gels haven't worked well with my brow texture, but I really like Anastasia's brow wiz for days I just want something quick, and Benefit's brow zing is usually my go to if I want something a little more filled in.

  3. That spoolie looks really big for use on brows. I think I will skip that one. Especially since my brows need all the help they can get! LOL!!!!

  4. I had never heard of brow gel before, but I could definitely use some help with my brows now especially because I'm trying to thicken them up a bit.

  5. I tend to use maybelline clear mascara to set my brows because typical brow gels don't make my eyebrows dark enough!

  6. I haven't tried the tinted brow gel but I love the clear one. The brow wiz is great too
