Gone are the days of wispy, thin-looking eyebrows — full, natural looking arches are more poopular than ever.

While we may not all be blessed with lush, Cara Delevigne-worthy brows, there are still ways that you can fake the look for yourself. Whether you choose to fill them in with pencils, gels, markers, and pencils, there's no doubt that brows are enjoying a moment in the spotlight once again.

NYX Professional Makeup have always prided themselves on staying ahead of the beauty curve, and their newest brow product is one must-have beauty product that can help you create the eyebrows of your dreams. It even has TikTok users raving, so you know it must be good.

What is it?

At just $8, the Brow Glue Instant Brow Styler helps to recreate the look of professionally laminated eyebrows in just seconds. Its vegan formula provides 16 hours of non-sticky, flake-free wear and the ultimate hold on even the tiniest brow hairs.

“I’m speechless!” shared beauty influencer Glamzilla after giving The Brow Glue a try. “Drugstore [makeup] is stepping it up in 2021!”

“This has great holding power, doesn’t get crunchy, and holds my brows all day,” added user @pamelapedrozaa.

So how does it hold up in real life?

After seeing this brow glue everywhere online, I knew I had to put it to the test for myself. Since I’m already a fan of the “no makeup” makeup look, I figured that this brow gel would be right up my alley.

Despite it's tough-sounding name, I was impressed that this brow gel doesn't leave behind a crunchy or sticky feeling — just fuller-looking brows that are set perfectly in place.

After a few quick swipes, The Brow Glue resulted in fluffy, natural-looking brows that stay in place all day. I opted for a lighter hand than you might find on TikTok, but if you're looking for an even more dramatic look that replicates the effect of brow lamination, the brand recommends brushing brows in an upward lifted motion, then filling in sparse areas with a brow product.

I can appreciate the versatility of this product, especially since it does double duty for either a natural or dramatic finish depending on how you choose to style it. It definitely lives up to the hype online, and at just $8 it's no wonder that The Brow Glue is constantly selling out.
