Wunderbrow Brow Gel- Is It Worth The Hype?

Recently, I can not help but notice Wunderbrow Brow Gel popping up everywhere. It is being advertised all over Facebook and I keep seeing it when I scroll down my Instagram feed. For £20 a pop, it claims to define, fill and thicken for a natural brow look that is waterproof, smudge proof, transfer proof and lasts up to 3 days. It is “infused” with hair like fibers to fill and sculpt the brow. In videos, you can often see ladies scrubbing at their brows after perfectly applying them, running them under water and trying to scratch them off with the product still staying perfectly intact. This sounded too good to be true, so I decided to order it and test it myself.

I am by no means a brow expert or a make-up guru, so I thought that would help to make this review realistic and see if the product is easy to use and if it actually does what it says on the packaging. For £20, you want a product that actually works.

The Review

Wunderbrow comes in 5 different shades- Blonde, Auburn, Brunette, Black/Brown and Jet Black. I opted for Black/Brown as I have naturally dark eyebrows and the brunette shade is far too light for my liking. In the package you receive the brow gel, a spoolie brush and an instruction leaflet. I normally use the Anastasia Dip Brow pomade which is around the same price and it is very easy to use. I have never used a gel like Wunderbrow before.

My natural brows are not too thin and not too thick. They have a very slight arch and I like a product that simply gives them a bit more definition and shape to them, so Wunderbrow sounded like something I wanted to give a go. I like my brows to look natural but defined.

The actual product is very thick and creamy and quite frankly, rather intimidating. It says “perfect brows in under two minutes” on the packaging but I have never met a girl who can do her brows in two minutes that isn’t a professional makeup artist/Unicorn. I had very low hopes when I saw the actual product because I could not possibly see how it could look natural. As I am a tad clumsy, I did not use the product with the brush it comes with. I instead used an angled brow brush for more precision, popping a bit of product on my hand and working with it that way… and my god this stuff DOES NOT COME OFF. AT ALL.

I was running my hand under warm water, scrubbing, scratching, using my makeup remover and it did not budge at all! I can say that this product truly does stay on. I don’t know about 3 days, because I would never leave my makeup on for that long, but you would definitely be able to go swimming or hop in the shower with this on! I have been out in the sun today and I can say it lasts well through heat also, so I will 100% be bringing this on holiday with me!

I will admit that I did have some difficulty applying this product likely because I am not used to it, but it does give a natural look and it does not look like you have just painted on your eyebrows which is what I was concerned about! The colour is an absolute perfect match and I love the fact this keeps all of the hairs in place. I found it did feel a little bit thick at first but that seemed to settle down after it had all dried. I have since been rubbing at my eyebrows and they really are staying on very well!

Is it worth the hype?

Yes! Definitely! It is a good product with very few faults and it is very, very long wearing which is fab. I think with more practice I will be able to apply it a bit better but I definitely think it is worth the £20 it costs. A little goes a long way and you can feel safe in the fact that your eyebrows are not going anywhere! I really like this product. I still love my Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade but this may become a new favorite due to its natural, long wearing formula. Have you used this product? I’d love to know what you think! That is it for this review, I hope you liked it!
