10 Budge-Proof Brow Gels for Picture-Perfect Arches
Not a hair out of place!
(SPOT.ph) Every beauty junkie is different—each one has their own style and preference for what they would consider the perfect look. However, there is one thing every makeup addict would probably agree on: for any look to be flawless, the brows need to be on point. And whether you like to keep your arches soft and natural, sharp and defined, or thick and eye-catching, you need the right products to achieve the aesthetic. Remember: brows frame the entire face, so just as the right picture frame complements a beautiful photograph, so do the right eyebrows flatter a pretty makeup look. We round up some brow gels you can shop around the Metro to help you achieve that perfect arch. Each product promises beautifully styled brows and lots of lasting power.
Try these 10 long-lasting eyebrow gels to achieve your ideal arches:
Lifebrow Grooming Gel (P345) from Sunnies Face
If you prefer a super precise style when shaping your brows, you’ll love the pointed, itty-bitty applicator on this tinted gel from Sunnies Face. The tapered tip is smaller than your average brow gel spoolie and will let you fill in any sparse areas and place your hairs exactly how you like. Plus, the waterproof and long-lasting formula will stay on all day without smudging of feathering.

Gimme Brow+ Brow-Volumizing Fiber Gel (P1,660) from Benefit
Create fuller-looking brows in a flash with this tinted brow gel from Benefit. It contains tiny microfibers that adhere to skin and hair to thicken and fill in brows while still keeping them looking natural. The tapered brush will help you shape them exactly as you please while the longwear formula makes sure they look great from morning to evening.
Clear Eyebrow Gel (P89.50) from Nichido
If you’re looking for an affordable, no-nonsense option to keep your brow hairs in place for hours, try Nichido’s clear eyebrow gel. Whether you already have full brows or you prefer to do most of the leg work with a pencil or powder, this gel is the perfect go-to product to apply finishing touches and keep stray hairs in place before you head out the door. Best part? It costs less than P90!
Available at Watsons.
Natural Brow Duo (P1,583) from Pixi
If you normally do your makeup on the go, this two-in-one brow product from Pixi would be a lifesaver. The slim packaging includes a waterproof pencil on one end— for perfecting your arches and filling in sparse areas. The other end features a tinted gel to hold unruly hairs in place and keep your brows looking on-point all day long.
Available online, at Watsons, and at selected department stores.
Brow Soap Styling Kit (P295) from Brow Magic PH
In case you haven’t heard of the soap-brow trend, it’s pretty much exactly what it sounds like: You style your brows using a colorless soap instead of a regular gel and the result is full, textured brows that stay put. This kit from Brow Magic PH uses the same logic, but with a brow "soap" made just for your arches. The solid balm, which you apply with a spoolie, is infused with castor oil to boost hair growth, argan oil to keep your strands soft, and vitamin E to keep the surrounding skin healthy.
Unbelieva-Brow Long Lasting Eyebrow Gel (P550) from L’Oreal
This waterproof brow gel from L’Oreal promises to be smudge-proof, transfer-proof, and sweat-resistant for eyebrows that look perfectly arched and polished even on your most hectic day. Use it to fill and thicken clean brows on a no-makeup makeup day or as a finishing touch after shaping your arches with your go-to pencil or pomade.
Available online and at selected department stores and drugstores.
1 Day Tattoo Lasting Eyebrow Mascara (P720) from K-Palette
This long-lasting brow mascara from Japanese beauty brand K-Palette would help you style your brows to match your Korean- or Japanese-inspired makeup look. It’ll sculpt and shape your hairs with a subtle, natural tint and comes with a fine-haired spoolie that promises precise but seamless application.
Available at Beauty Bar and selected department stores and drugstores.
Dipbrow Gel (P1,150) from Anastasia Beverly Hills
