Milani Brow Shaping Gel and Clear Wax

As I’ve matured and become better at “making up my face,” I’ve incorporated my brows into my routine everyday.

It’s not that I didn’t groom them before, but I have learned better how to fill them in and darken them a tad, because they are fair and sparse and I look more … finished when I do.

One of the must-have brow products, in my opinion, is a wax or gel to tame wily hairs.

Milani Cosmetics has launched new brow products, including new Brow Shaping Clear Gel and Brow Shaping Clear Wax Pencil, and I couldn’t wait to put them to the test!

Both of these products can be used alone or in conjunction with other brow products, like a powder or pencil to shade/fill in. I’ll start off with the Brow Shaping Gel!

Brow Shaping Clear Gel is a brush-on gel product that provides light to medium hold in taming eyebrows, with a bristle brush that combs brows in place and manages those strays.

Here’s how it looked on my brow:

There are some days when I feel like filling in my brows and some days I don’t. Either way, this gel is helpful. I found it held things in place throughout the day for me.

Brow Shaping Clear Wax is the same concept, but different formula and hold.

The Clear Wax provides a medium to strong hold, and a matte finish compared with the sheen of the gel. It’s transparent, but tames unruly brows. I use a brow comb prior to running this wax pencil over my brow and I love the end result. Check it out in action:

My eyebrows are weird – they are sparse and stubborn. How you see my eye brow there is how I combed it, and applied the wax to seal it. I used a Milani Brow & Eye Highlighter to fill in my brows before I applied the wax. This pencil lasted throughout the day, as well.

The Brow Shaping Clear Gel and Clear Wax retail for $4.49, and are available at CVS, Walgreens and Walmart.

At this price, and based on how they performed when I tried them, I would definitely purchase these products. If I’m being honest, though, I prefer the wax pencil to the gel, for the matte finish and stronger hold.

So have you tried these new brow shapers yet? Which one do you think you’d prefer – gel or wax?!

    I just purchased the wax because brow gel does not tame my wild eyebrow hairs unfortunately. I’m hoping the wax will hold them in place better.
