Benefit Gimme Brow Gel recall hit us hard last week. The microfiber, water-resistant gel formula is beloved for its ability to give a natural boost to patchy brows and stay in place through the sweatiest of situations. Our hearts won't be totally whole again until it's restocked, but we're the resilient type. There are still plenty of other contenders for best brow filler — and we've tried them all. Read on for our beauty editors' top picks for full, tamed, and sculpted eyebrows.
Boy Brow is a cool-girl favorite. With its easy one-step application (just swipe it on in the directions you want your brows to go), four shades (including clear), flexible hold, and thickening formula, it's a product you'll reach for whether your look is no-makeup makeup or full-on glam.
Glossier Boy Brow,
Our beauty director Cat Quinn swears by Givenchy's Mister Brow, which, we just realized, is the older brother of Boy Brow? Or dad? Anyway, enriched with nourishing vitamin b5, the formula dries quickly without flaking and holds all of our little hairs in place until our nighttime cleansing ritual. The angled brush makes for easy application and an even distribution of your color of choice: Brunette, Blonde, or Granite.
Givenchy Mister Brow Filler Tinted Waterproof Brow Filler,
For all-natural fans out there, we recommend the Green Tea Fiber Brow Builder (it's vegan and chemical-free!). The formula's winning ingredient — green leaf fibers — is buildable and nourishing, so you can customize your look and never feel like you're wearing makeup.
Green Tea Fiber Brow Builder: Medium Brown,
Beauty writer Mi-Anne Chan loves the way this Blinc mousse fills in her brows and says the black shade is the best she's found for her coloring so far. Water-resistant, easy to apply, and never flakes — what more could you want?
Eyebrow Mousse - Black - 4g/0.14oz,
A great gel to pair with a brow pencil, this one from It Cosmetics has biotin, saw palmetto, argan oil, and jojoba oil infused into a flexible, lasting hold formula.
This lightly tinted brow gel/mascara is great if you want just a hint of subtle color at a crazy-affordable price point.
Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara,
If you have a little more time on your hands, a brow pomade applied with a brush allows for precision sculpting and clean lines. This pomade comes in five shades, is waterproof, and lasts all day long, but unfortunately, doesn't include a brush.
it Cosmetics Build-A-Brow Waterproof 5-in 1 Micro Fiber Creme Gel Stain (Universal Taupe),
A real crowd pleaser, this gel styler comes with a hairbrush-like wand that targets each and every brow hair. With three colors and a clear option to choose from, your eyebrows can look perfect in one swipe.
Sourcils Styler Brow Styler,
