Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Review



After multiple makeup brands started releasing tinted brow gels with fibers, I knew Essence Cosmetics would eventually follow, the best news is: they went for a Benefit Gimme Brow dupe. The packaging of both products is almost identical: small, compact, very travel friendly and of course way cheaper. Essence released three different eyebrow gel shades, 01 Blondy Brows for blondes, 02 Browny Brows for people with dark eyebrows and 03 Soft Browny Brows for brunettes. Let's have look!


I really enjoy using the Essence Make Me Brow, after having tested 4 other low-budget eyebrow fiber formula's I find myself always going back to the one from Essence. It's the only formula where the product is actually packed with fibers to thicken and keep brow hairs in place for hours at all time. Most brands have their product contain more pigment than actual fibers. The shade that matches my brow color is 03 Soft Browny Brows. I shape and fill in my eyebrows first using the Essence Eyebrow Designer in 04 Blonde and then finish off the routine by applying several coats of the Make Me Brow Mascara. Touching up and layering product goes really easy, it doesn't become patchy, spidery or gross looking. Something I did notice however is that you can feel a bit of stiffness in your brows after application, a little like the Wunderbrow Eyebrow Gel, but other than that this product is actually quite a drugstore makeup gem!

Before purchasing this product I was using the Catrice Eyebrow Filler Perfecting and Shaping Gel. One big complaint I had about that product is that the brush is way too long and difficult to manage, the Essence Make Me Brow's applicator is small and can easily coat the browsI I love this product, it is a must have in my every day makeup routine.

  1. Oh, I'm seeing the dupe for Benefit Gimme Brow! To me eyebrow gel is not all that easy to find in my drugstores. I'm so glad Essence has it in their range. As for now, I'm using Essence clear brow gel and I like it. Can't wait to try on this! :D
