Finding the best brow gel is one of those things that feels like it should be easy, yet so many products leave something to be desired. There are three common scenarios: It defines brows magnificently but refills get pricey (see: Glossier Boy Brow), it flakes off and gives you dandruff-y brows, or it stays put and feels crunchy. But according to over 10,000 five-star Amazon ratings, NYX's Tinted Brow Mascara is the affordable dream come true.  

Like tons of NYX products, the brow gel's unassuming packaging belies an incredible formula. For less than $10, the raves stack up: Shoppers with near-invisible brows say it lasts all day but looks and feels surreally natural, rivaling products that cost seven times the price while making a huge difference (this reviewer's before-and-after is especially stunning). 

People whose eyebrows have thinned and lightened with age say it fills even more easily than brow pencils, leading one person to dub it the "best subtle brow make-up for seniors." "Subtle" being the operative word — as opposed to brow gels packed with fibers, the Tinted Mascara darkens and creates the illusion of thickness without much fuss. Per the name, it looks like you just got a salon brow tint.

"Whoever made this is my savior. This has got to be one of my favorite beauty products I own," wrote one impressed shopper who's going on four years with the tint. "Three hundred sixty-five days a year using this stuff. It's quick, easy to use, and my eyebrows forever look good, even on my bad days. I live in Florida and my eyebrows manage to stay on a full beach day." 

The speedy application is another advantage, according to people who used to spend four times as long filling in their brows. A few brushes of the wand leaves their brows effortlessly full, so much so that all other products become irrelevant. 

"This is the best brow tinting product I've used. I threw out all my eyebrow pencils," writes one person. "It tints my pale blond brows with just enough color to give my face expression, [and] it stays on all day."

Reviewers with brows traumatized by the '90s say the brow mascara helps them feel better about themselves, the low-maintenance routine able to tame even sparse, wiry hairs. Transfer-proof color conceals gray and white hairs so well that shoppers in their 60s call it "the absolute best," with devotees even ordering back-ups to always have on hand. And as a last happy reviewer writes, "I feel like I have my eyebrows back!"   

What more could we ask? A price starting at just $3? That box is ticked, too. Have at it while the sale is running, because 10,000 people can't be wrong.
