NYX The Brow Glue effortlessly creates laminated looking brows.

Eyebrow gel is a must for me. But finding good setters at the drugstore can be challenging. Typically, cheap gels are either too waxy, which makes my hairs droop, or they just don’t seem to do anything at all. However, I recently discovered a drugstore eyebrow gel that I now adore. It’s the NYX Brow Glue. This TikTok-famous Instant Brow Styler creates the look of laminated eyebrows with ease. And it’s super long lasting, for lifted brows all day. So, let’s jump into NYX Brow Glue Review.

Promises vs. Performance: NYX eyebrow gel won’t let you (or your brow hairs) down.

NYX Brow Glue

According to NYX’s website, this brow gel is super longwearing. To be exact, it should last for 16 hours. The waterproof formula is transparent and flake-free, so it should tame brows without being visible. It also dries down non-sticky to a natural finish. Application should be quick and easy: just brush into brows, then comb them into place. This eyebrow gel comes in a clear tube with a tiny spoolie.

My Review Thoughts: NYX Brow Glue

When I applied this product, I first drew on hairlike strokes of pigment with Uni-Brow Precision Brow Pencil by Winky Lux ($16). Then, with NYX’s small spoolie, I applied a light layer to coat my eyebrows. After letting it set, I applied a second light layer to shape my eyebrows.

This product never lets me down. The clear formula stays in my brow hairs until I’m ready to remove my makeup. It does make my eyebrows look a little crusty, but I honestly don’t mind. The crustiness is pretty undetectable. And since the formula is so long lasting, I can overlook it. One other point I want to mention, It does have a shiny finish. This is something that you may or not take as a negative for the product.

How It Compares: The best brow gel at the drugstore.

So, in this section of the review let’s compare NYX Brow Glue to the best in its category. So, in terms of eyebrow gels at the drugstore, it’s definitely one of the cheaper products. Moreover, when looking for a better option over NYX, you will not find a better option at the drugstore prices. You will have to jump significantly in the price category to find better performing brow gel or glue. For example, Benefit 24-HR Brow Gel is a better product, but it comes at 3x the price.

So the conclusion of this review is that NYX Brow Glue is the best of Drugstore.

But if you have any interest, take a look at some of the best performers on the market in the chart below. We are talking about Benefit brow gel and Trio brow wax. Both of these are excellent products that you might want to try. Also, check out the individual product pages which include comparable products and brow product dupes.

Our Rating Criteria

Milabu Beauty Method: Two layers for long lasting eyebrows.

Two steps is all you need for max longevity. You can apply this gel to bare brows or after a pigmented brow product. A cheap brow pencil I recommend is the NYX Micro Brow Pencil ($10).

  1. Lightly comb the product through your brow hairs, coating each hair. Allow the gel to get tacky and dry down before moving onto the next layer.
  2. Lightly comb the product through your brow hairs once again, this time shaping the hairs to your desired look.

Tip: If you like the laminated brow look, brush your hairs upwards from the inner corner of your brow to the arch. Then, for the tail end, comb them sideways towards your temples.
