Make Up Forever Aqua Brow Review

I like well defined prominently shaped eyebrows because nice brows can change the shape of your face and give you a completely different look. Usually I get my eyebrows threaded at a local spa and then I fill them in for more color and definition.

Previously I was using the three dollar e.l.f Studio eyebrow kit that comes with a gel and a setting powder. For more info on this kit click -HERE. The kit worked okay but I found that I had to work pretty hard to build up the color and fill in all the spots between the hairs.

At IMATS in November I purchased the Make Up Forever Aqua Brow Gel because the reviews were good and I wanted something of better quality that is long lasting. I absolutely love this brow gel! Not only is it easy to use but a little goes such a long way. I apply a few small dabs directly from the tube using my angled brush and the color blends out easily and provides good coverage.

This brow gel covers and fills in the spaces between hairs very well. It also dries pretty quickly and it is water proof which makes it suitable for every season. I have pretty thick eyebrows but if you have thin brows or barely there brows this gel shouldn't vanish on hot sweaty days or as you emerge from the sauna or pool.

The gel comes in a few different colors such as light blonde, blonde, ash, and dark brown which is the one I use. Even if you have black hair like I do, you shouldn't use a black gel or pencil to fill in your brows because black looks too harsh and unnatural. You want your brows to be defined but not awkward looking so for black hair or dark brown hair a dark brown gel works well.

I also like that this gel provides a natural finish with just the right amount of color, it doesn't make your brows look comical or fake. When I use this gel I don’t need to use any other brow powders or pencil liners to fill in the color. You can even use the gel to outline and define the shape and arch of the brows because it is pigmented enough to give you a nice line.

The brush I use to apply my gel is this e.l.f. Studio small angled brush
You can find the link to this brush- HERE

Before I begin filling in my brows I comb the hairs with an eyebrow brush to make sure they are neat and going in the same direction. When I begin filling them in I prefer to start at the ends of my brows which are more sparse and work my way in. Try to fill in the brows so that they are the same shape and width. 

You can purchase this gel at Sephora for $24 I got mine at IMATS for $15

If you are looking for a great brow gel then I highly recommend trying this out.

What do you use on your brows?


  1. I heard only good things about this product and I would totally get it if it wasn't that expensive (maybe I will save up for it :D). I use an eyebrow pencil from essence to achieve the shape that I want and I fill them in using two different eye brow powders :D

  2. This looks really good. I currently use a NYX brow pencil which I like but now I'm tempted :-)


  3. WOW! I have never tried any gel brow before.even i barely use anything on my brow.but so far only tried the pencil. This gel definitely look interesting(looks nice on you too!)☺

  4. I was just wondering if a product like this existed! Thanks for answering my question haha. It looks natural. I might go find this this weekend.

  5. This M.U.F.E. gel sounds new to me. And looks very good. I would like to try it.
    Nice review, Erica :)

  6. I really like your results. I have been curious about this product for a while... maybe it's time for me to try it out!

  7. Thanks or the review I shall have to give it a try. I currently use Sephora waterproof brow pencil

  8. I am already a follower of your blog, greetings

  9. I just bought this at Sephora a few weeks ago. So far so good, but I still find I reach for my pencil to get a sharper outline and I fill with this aqua gel.
