Wunder2 Wunderbrow, P1,600 Loren, 23, Oily Skin: “When I saw the reviews on Instagram and Youtube by beauty bloggers, especially with their ‘smudge-proof’ claim, I knew I had to buy it! It’s also buildable if you want a darker shade. After cleansing, using a thin brow brush, I would dab a small amount onto my brows, which is enough to cover my entire brow. I would let it dry for a minute or two, then try smudging it with my index finger. And voila! No smudged edges and no residue on my finger. Bonus, it comes with a free spoolie! I’ll definitely repurchase! This is smudge-proof, water-proof, and lasts for days! I give this a 5/5!”

Maybelline Brow Tattoo Gel Tint, P599 Maria, 26, Combination Skin: “I was super excited to try this out and when I did, I was not disappointed! It gives a natural look and it stays for a long time! I always wash my face at night and morning, but the product stays. It lasts for 2-3 days on my brows with a bit of fading. It’s kind of hard to apply at first. You will need to practice, but it would be fine once you get the hang of it. Totally love this and I will 100% repurchase.”

Imagic Eyebrow Mascara Tinted Gel, currently on sale at P299 (limited time only) Ayn, 33, Combination Skin: “I have brows that are all over the place, and this product helped me keep them neat! It’s also highly pigmented so you just have to be careful with the amount of product you apply. It’s very easy to use, spreads evenly, and lasts the whole day! Very affordable as well. Will definitely repurchase.”

NYX Professional MakeUp Eyebrow Gel, P460 Ledie, 24, Normal Skin: “Waterproof, smudge-proof, and natural looking brows are the characteristics of a brow product I am always considering. And this brow gel possesses all the mentioned qualities. Though this is a little bit pricey, a little goes a long way. There’s nothing I can complain about with this product, hence my 5-star rating. I bought this in the shade Brunette. I feel like a pro make-up artist whenever I put this on my and my mom’s brows! Very natural! I soooo LOVE IT!”

April Skin Magic Brow Tattoo Gel, currently on sale at P580 (limited time only) Maica, 27, Oily Skin: “At first I was scared with how it would look like, because with the initial application I looked super crazy. But once you peel it off, it leaves a very soft, natural tint to your brows that lasts 2-3 days for me. I would advise you leave it for a longer time if you want it to last long, but for me 1 hour is enough. The gel was very soft and easy to remove, so no need to worry about it plucking your hair. This is very good for natural makeup days, at least for me since I have full brows.”
