For under $10, Revlon's eyebrow gel comes with a thick eyebrow pencil.

I filled in my brows with the pencil before going over them with gel.

Even though the final look was nice and clean, the gel had almost no hold and was virtually useless.

I technically just paid for an eyebrow pencil.

4.) COVERGIRL EASY BREEZY BROW MASCARA, $8.99

I had no idea that CoverGirl made eyebrow gel! This one had me excited.

The brush had a particular curve that worked well with my arches.

But the curve shape made for sloppy application on my inner brows.

I did love how much pigment it gave in only a couple of coats. This one took less time to apply than the others.

3.) NYC SHOW TIME BROW STYLING GEL, $2.49

When I shop for beauty products at the drugstore, I tend to skip over the NYC display. But while I've found their lipsticks to be dry and easy-to-break, their eyebrow gel is a cut above.

The thick spoolie distributed the perfect amount of product.

With one pass of the wand, I had just the right shade. 

I usually trace the perimeters of my brows with concealer for a sharper look, but I might not need to with this product.

It's in third place because of the limited shade range.

2.) WET N WILD ULTIMATE BROW MASCARA, $4.99

They say you get what you pay for, but with Wet N Wild, I felt like I had spent some Anastasia Beverly Hills money.

No sparse spots here. 

This definitely gave me a finished look.

It even managed to tame and tint my right eyebrow, which grows in three different directions.

The shorter spoolie allowed me to brush hairs into place without any clumping. 

This 2-minute product gave almost the same effect as my 20-minute routine. What is this magic?

L'Oreal, you have won me over.
