NYX Tame & Frame Brow Pomade Review


This was supposed to be a temporary solution, a product I bought out of desperation. It was the end of the month and I'd run out of all of my beloved 'eyebrows on fleek' staples: my Wunderbrow Eyebrow Gel and the Catrice Slim Matic Eyebrow Pencil. Going around eyebrowless isn't something I particularly enjoy so I decided to check out all of the drugstores nearby in search of something affordable, until I'd place an online order for some more Wunderbrow action. I ended up purchasing the NYX Tame & Frame Brow Pomade in Blonde and right now I am absolutely loving my 'desperate purchase'!


I know brow pomades are pretty much out of fashion at this point, everyone has moved on to extremely thin brow pencils as they are so easy to work with. I wasn't that hopeful about the NYX Tame & Frame. I hadn't seen many reviews and the ones I had read and seen on Youtube weren't actually that positive. Only a couple of you, that follow me on Snapchat, told me you really like it. The shade range of the NYX Tame & Frame is insane, I wasn't quite sure what to pick up at first, at my NYX drugstore in Brussels the amount of colors available is just crazy! I like my brows to be ashy so Blonde seemed to be the right choice.


The NYX Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade comes with 5g for the retail price of €7.20, the packaging is small, compact, travel friendly and the only claim on the box of this product is that it's waterproof. While I do not agree with that statement (because my brows did budge when I cleansed my face the other day trying to keep them intact), I do have to say that it is most definitely sweat proof and very long lasting. The texture of this pomade is hard to describe, I would say it feels almost like clay when it is finger-swatched. On the brows it looks very natural, it's easy to work with and the product blends in beautifully with the eyebrow hairs. I love to apply this pomade using my ZOEVA 322 Brow Line brush. The color Blonde is exactly what I was looking for and I love my brows when I use this. I would almost dare to say that I like it more than my Wunderbrow Eyebrow Gel because it keeps my long eyebrow hairs in place for waaaay longer.


I'm in love with my NYX Tame & Frame and I recommend it! I can't believe I've found such an affordable brow product that is everything that I need it to be. I do wonder how long this container will last though, and whether it will dry out quickly or not. It does say to make sure the lid is tightly screwed on, so I'll definitely keep an eye out for that and keep you updated. So far I'm crazy about my new eyebrows and I'll be repurchasing this again for sure! Curious what my previous eyebrow routine was like? Check it out here. Also, if you're a newbie, keep in mind this brow pomade does not come with an applicator. The lady that helped me out at the NYX counter brought that to my attention when I made my purchase, I didn't even think about it because I have many brow brushes of my own! Check out the NYX brow brushes if you don't have one yet ;)

  1. This sounds amazing and it's only around the 7 Euro mark. Last time I went into NYX, everything seemed quite expensive but maybe I didn't check well enough. Thanks for sharing as I'm looking for a new pommade. x Nikita
