Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara/Brow Gel

Apparently the Maybelline Great Lash Clear Mascara is sold in the UK but i've never actually clapped eyes on it myself. Therefore I picked it up on holiday and have been using it ever since.

I'm a great believer in using drugstore brow gels. They do the trick so there is really no need to waste your money on a high end version that will no doubt be exactly the same. I've tried one or two different versions but have stuck to my trusty Gosh Defining Brow Gel for a while now. It's cheap and it does the job. I only wish that it lasted longer as the product will run out after a couple of months.

I've got my eye on the tinted version by Maybelline presently - the same brand who created this Great Lash Clear Mascara which you can use as a brow gel as well.

The main thing I noticed about this product was how thin and watery it was in comparison to my usual Gosh version. I think that due to this thin consistency, my brows never feel crunchy when I use this gel. Personally I don't mind them being a little bit stiff so long as they don't look like it!

The brush on this seems to be a lot more structured. By this I mean that it combs my brows into lines of hair instead of just setting them in place, looking natural as they are. I don't know whether that's due to the Great Lash product primarily being designed for eyelashes therefore needing the separation.

Over all I think it's a little hard to pick between the two. The Maybelline version here is less crispy and you get more product, whereas the Gosh version has a better wand and a stronger hold.

If I had to pick, I would say the Gosh Gel pips Maybelline to the post - even if it is more expensive in the long run. I just prefer it over all.

If you have any great brow gel recommendations or have tried the new Maybelline Brow Tint, let me know in the comments below :)

  1. I've never used a brow gel before but definitely think I might give this a whirl :) Though I don't recall ever seeing this in store either, how strange!

    1. I love brow gels. Especially considering my brows don't like to behave. If you can't find this one, Gosh Defining Brow Gel is definitely worth a try :) xxo
