I picked up Sonia Kashuk’s tinted brow gel from Target a while back in an effort to both explore the Sonia Kashuk brand further as well as learn more about affordable brow products that are out there in drugstores. Sonia Kashuk offers just one shade along with a clear version of the gel, and while I understood that the shade might not be ideal for me, I couldn’t tell for sure how fitting or how off it’d be just based on how it looked in the package.
A great aspect of this product is a very affordable price tag of $6. It’s also available at Target, which is convenient. It comes in a basic clear tube and I think it’s kind of useful to be able to see how the product looks inside. If you pull the wand out the walls of the tube will get coated, but once you let it sit for a few minutes the gel will settle and it’s very easy to see how much you have left.
The wand is a pretty basic one, as well. It’s about as long as a normal mascara wand, but it’s tapered which makes it easy enough to use on brows and not get gel on the surrounding skin. I think the neck of the tube does a nice job of scraping off enough of the gel so that it doesn’t transfer too much onto brows. All that in mind, the product’s “hardware” makes me happy.
Unfortunately, the color doesn’t. When I initially purchased this my hair was dark blond and so while I thought the gel might be a bit dark, the cool ashiness was good. I did find that at that time the darkness made it pretty unworkable for me. These days I have red hair and so not only does the darkness not work for me, the ashiness doesn’t, either
So, while I did try this gel out, I really didn’t get a lot of use from it. I decided to retire my tube in my most recent empties post, but I though I’d share photos of the color in case it might help you decide how well it might fit your coloring.
Ultimately, I think that this will work for a decent number of people, I just don’t think it’s anywhere near universal and it hurts a little that there’s only one shade available! I may reach for the clear version in the future, but I personally like getting a bit of color from brow gels. Sonia Kashuk also offers one shade of a brow pencil, two shades of a twist-up pencil, and a 4-pan cream palette for brows.
