Over the years I have tried many eyebrow gels to keep my eyebrows groomed, and quite frankly, the best one that I have found is also one of the cheapest around (costs around $11).
Australis Extender Lash & Brow mascara is great to use as an eyebrow gel and keeps my eyebrows in place all day. Your eyebrows do feel slightly firm to touch, but they do look natural. There is also no flaking, which I have experienced with other eyebrow gels.
I don’t use this as a mascara on my eyelashes (and I also don’t use it on clients for that purpose) because I prefer to use a tinted one. As this is a clear mascara, it separates your lashes and it does make them look slightly defined. If this is the look you are after, then this is a great buy for that purpose.
Also, with usage, the gel does get filthy over time (specially if you use the mascara on your eyebrows after you have put on a tinted moisturiser/sunscreen or foundation). For personal use, I only use this on my eyebrows, so the gel getting dirty over time is not an issue for me. For my kit, I use a clean wand every time I dip it into the tube – so the mascara stays clean (I’m a hygiene freak when it comes to my clients!).
