Most kids are born with delicate, wispy eyebrows, but I was born with a unibrow that only got bushier as I got older, requiring constant threading appointments to keep them from looking like the start of a Penny Dreadful werewolf transformation. (One brow salon even stopped charging me because it "felt like robbery").
But thanks to the recent trend in big-as-hell eyebrows, my once-alienating "curse" is now my favorite part of my face. That said, they're still needy creatures that require daily taming—which is where brow gels come in. Unlike pencils and powders, which amp up sparse, tiny brows, gels pretty much just enhance your current situation without adding too much bulk or drama.
Of course, not all gels are created equal, and some formulas straight-up suck. So to cut through the noise, I tested the most popular gels on the market for the ultimate brow-gel showdown. Check out the rankings here.
