You can't help but feel a little extra pep in your step when your brows are looking their best. It's the tinier version of a good hair day, but in my experience, more work. Granted, there are a ton of brow products I really like, it's just that getting brows just right (and close to matching...) can be a lot of effort. Maybelline is trying to cut down brow-taming time with one of their recent launches. Too good to be true? You'll have to read on to find out...

'Fill and color your eyebrows with this ultra-resistant Maybelline Tattoo Brow Waterproof Eyebrow Gel. The sculpting tip and eyebrow spoolie work together to create fuller-looking brows that last for days. Does not smudge. Does not transfer. 98% saw fuller and thicker eyebrows, 93% say gel does not transfer, and 88% would recommend to a friend. Benefits:Fill in eyebrows with a gel formula that lasts up to 2 days. Instantly colors and defines for full eyebrows. Eyebrow defining tip fills and grooming spoolie blends for fuller-looking brows. Available four in long-lasting shades.'

The Maybelline Tattoo Studio Waterproof Brow Gel is a one-and-done kind of brow product, that as the name implies, also locks brows in place like a gel. The `gel`(it has no gel texture, if we`re being specific) works to fill brows, add some volume thanks to added fibres, lock them in place, and do so for days. Now, I didn't think I needed a two-day brow product in my life, but I`ve got to say, I`ve been loving the fact that this lasts. The waterproof formula is basically transfer-proof (I had the tiniest hint of colour on finger after a vigorous test) and stays locked in for days. For testing purposes, I wore the gel for three days and found by day three, I still had very decent looking brows. There was a softer look, as the product was beginning to fade around the edges, but otherwise, they were looking pretty good. If the idea of product that long-lasting doesn't suit you, the gel does remove easily with an oil or cleansing balm.

The gel comes packaged in a squeeze-style tube with tapered sponge-brush applicator. You won`t like it. The best bet for application is an angled brush, as the included brush is just too large and applies too much product. As this gel is quite pigmented and lasts so long, a more precise application is necessary. These do come with an included spoolie though, which is must have. It works nicely for distributing product and I`ve found, for adding texture back into brows once the gel dries. Since this does give some major hold, I`ve found I like to run the spoolie back through brow hairs (in reverse) to lift them then tame them for a more naturally full look.

wearing Medium Brown & Deep Brown

I used the two brown options from the range, Medium Brown and Deep Brown for the brow transformation above with the lightest shade through the front and the deeper shade through the tails. The shades are great as they're not too warm or too ashy, with the Deep Brown shade working nicely in my naturally black brow hairs. As you can see, I have okay brows overall, but do have a sparse patch through the front. This gel works amazingly to fill brows and doesn't leave tell-tale patchiness when dealing with sparse areas.

Overall, I really love this! Not only does it give you brows for days, but it looks great and won`t break the budget. I do wish they would either change the applicator, or include an angled brush, but that's a minor issue. What do you think? Do you like the idea of a long-lasting brow? Tried this or want to?
