With the right brow pencil, you can easily fake fuller kilay. But with the right brow mascara, you can instantly get bushy, thick, and natural-looking face-framers that will last for hours.
This is why for today's edition of Cosmo.ph Beauty Wars, we tested three clear gel mascara formulas to see which one is actually worth it.
Essence Lash & Brow Gel Mascara
Where to buy: Watsons, The SM Store
What is it: A clear gel that can tame brow hairs and make lashes stand out.
Why we love it: It's affordable and it does what it says! It may not last for more than a few hours, but since it's cheap af we can forgive that.
Rimmel Brow This Way in 004 Clear Transparent
Where to buy: Calyxta
What is it: This gel grooms your brows for a soft, natural look without making them feel "crispy."
Why we love it: We were surprised at how clumpy this gel was—we had to go in with a clean spoolie to evenly distribute the product on our brows—but our kilay looked clean and perfectly-arched after.
Make Up For Ever Brow Gel in 00 Transparent
Where to buy: Greenbelt 3, SM Megamall
What is it: A non-sticky, albeit thick, gel that adds volume and definition to your kilay, thanks to tiny fibers in its formula!
Why we love it: Omg. This one properly coated each of our brow hairs and made sure they stayed in place for over eight hours. Again, omg! Now if only it wasn't this expensive, we'd be already buying a dozen backups.
