A great brow gel is as essential to us as moisturizer. Even on days we go makeup-free-which, to be honest, is happening more frequently than ever-groomed brows are a must. And just as with skincare, there are certain nuances to figuring out the best formula to fit your personal needs: It has to have the right consistency and hold for your hair type, for example, and the correct amount of pigment is principal.
So when a drugstore option happens to tick all those boxes, we (and our wallets) rejoice. Apparently, we're not alone: Beauty-savvy Pinterest users also seeking out a budget-friendly brow option have tracked down the perfect gel, and they've been quick to spread their recommendation. Oh, and it happens to be only $7.

With 27,300 repins and counting, it's safe to declare that Nyx's Eyebrow Gel is the most popular brow gel on Pinterest, and for good reason: The formula is perfectly tinted, waterproof, and available in five different shades-a nice departure from choosing between generic blond, brown, and black. The fact that it's lightweight and natural-looking makes it an easy addition to any morning routine, bare-faced or not.
The only thing to keep in mind is that since it's a tube formula, you'll need an angled brow brush or spoolie wand for precise application. Our advice: Get a brush that does both, like Anastasia's #12В ($18).
