        I live for brow products & have tried almost everything that has been talked about on the market. I am a natural redhead & have very blond, sparse eyebrows & have had to fill them in for years. Over the past couple of years, I have been using Anastasia's eyebrow pencil & tinted eyebrow gel pretty consistently while trying out other products in between. I've never been super stoked on the eyebrow gel because of its finish. I found that the gel always looked a little sparkly & unnatural & it would also dry up causing flakes sometimes. I also felt that the brush was too big to really get in & work all my little brow hairs into place.

        This gel, however, I am absolutely loving. The finish is so natural. It defines my brows & holds them in place & I am able to layer the product onto my brows to help them look thicker. It doesn't get flaky at all. The blond color goes perfectly with my red/strawberry blonde hair & the brush is small & so easy to work with! I also wore this eyebrow gel at an outdoors event, standing in the sun & sweating for hours, & they looked just as good at the end of the day as they did when I first did them.

        I really, really hope this product is permanent because I would love to use this everyday, forever. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I wish this held my unruly brows that like to stick out in different directions a little better.

        Wish these sites would invest some effort into image color quality issues instead of using "different browsers & color management' as a scapegoat. Just using larger images of actual swatches would help. Oddly, cosmetic sites are some of the worst offenders. I bought Toasted Blonde described as "Dirty Blonde." Conceding that perceptions vary, I would still maintain that it's nowhere close to 'dirty blonde.' It's a brassy, coppery color that looksfreakish and unnatural on me and 2 different shaded blondes I tried to give it to. I have no idea of the quality of the brow set since there was no way I could find to alter it, tone it down, or camouflage it enough to use. This one's for redheads....not auburns but light redheads.
        I did like the small brush---excellent idea.

        Great brow set formula and brush, too few shades

        By 

        from Santa Clara, CA

        Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set:

        I really like the Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set, it's a great formula with a great brush. While I don't have the thinnest brows (they're more like medium thick), I do prefer a smaller more precise brush and this brow set has the ideal size for me. It's a great product to set brows used alone (for quick natural looks) or after I use a brow pencil. The formula is non-greasy, not stiff and keeps brow hairs in place all day; it's definitely sweatproof,
        The only thing I don't like is the shade range. Both Quiet and Bold Brunette are `workable` shades for me, but their still too warm toned; and Brown Ebony is too dark. Considering MAC is a professional make-up line, they should have more shade options for this kind of product.

        Disappointing

        By 

        from Florida

        Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set:

        This product is really quite expensive to have such poor payoff. I purchased Bold Brunette and the color was way lighter than expected. You really have to go back in the tube with several dips/applications before you will even start to see any "bold"-ness. The applicator is way too wide... seems larger than most mascara brushes and I thought brow brushes were supposed to be smaller or thinner; if you're really using the product, when you start to see it the brush causes the color to go wild everywhere. Last and most important, the fact that this is supposed to "set" my brow hairs... its a joke. I am really disappointed in this product and really feel like I wasted my money.

        Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set:

        I think something changed with the formula. I bought this previously and loved it. I just bought it last week and I agree with other reviewers it is dry and I am unable to see any color. Sad to send it back and to look for something new for my brows.

        Why did MAC change the original formula? Bring back the orig

        By 

        from SF

        Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set:

        MAC used to have a product called Brow Set that came in a color called "Show Off" which was a rich dark brown formulation and a nice full brush. I purchased it for years until one day I stopped by my MAC store and they told me it was discontinued and that Brow Set no longer comes in a dark brown shade. In its place is Pro Longwear in Bold Brunette so I purchased it hoping it was as good or better than Show Off. What a joke! Pro Longwear is a tinier, dried product with a shorter, smaller brush that barely gets color out and is no more long-wearing than the original Brow Set. For the life of me, I just don't understand why some cosmetic companies discontinue quality products and replace them with inferior ones. It has soured me on MAC cosmetics.

        Not For The Non-Experienced

        Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set:

        I would recommend it to someone who really knows their make up and brow products. It didn't work for me at all. I guess I'm old school and am used to using brow pencils like the ones from the 80's.

        This did nothing for my brows. Product is very dry. I didn't notice any color or taming power.

        Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set:

        Bought this product before Christmas, and up until now I've been thoroughly impressed but today, TODAY I realised I will not use any other product. After doing my makeup my boyfriend and I participated in a bit of an impromptu bonk and I can happily say, after having my face in a pillow while in 28 degree summer humidity as my boyfriend courted me from behind, my eyebrows have not budged one bit. They are on fleek. 10/10 recommend.

        i wanted to love it

        By 

        from nyc

        Comments about MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Brow Set:

        I really wanted to love this product, but after going through all of the shades, this seemed to be the closest fit to my brow color. It looked pretty in the store, I think because the makeup artist was so helpful and sweet, plus the lighting. As soon as I got home the color had too much of a red hue and it didn't look right at all. The application brush could be a tad smaller too.

        For all the wonderful products mac creates, this was a miss for me.
