It's said eyebrows are one of the most defining facial features, so it makes sense you should pay them some attention in your morning routine. But with a range of brow products on the market, finding one suited to your needs can be an overwhelming task.

We've done the hard work for you and roadtested a range of eyebrow gels. Here's how they stack up:

Brand: Chantecaille
Name: Full Brow Perfecting Gel + Tint
From: mecca.com.au
Price: $58
This eyebrow gel was my first real foray into Chantecaille, so I was eager to try a brand with such a stellar reputation. The gel was easy to apply with no real issues, but took a few goes over the same spot to get a really good level of coverage. The formula is quite lightweight, so if you don’t like stiff brows, this may be the gel for you.

Brand: Napoleon Perdis 
Name: Wand-Er Brow 
From: napoleonperdis.com 
Price: $32 
I’m not sure why it took so long for me to discover this gem, considering I use Napoleon’s eyebrow pencil every day of my life. It’s like the eyebrow gel I’ve only dreamed of, but better. The applicator is different from other gels and is long and skinny, which intimidated me at first. However, application was super easy and the product is stickier than other gels, leaving my brows rm and in place all day.

Brand: Eye öf Hörus
Name: Brow Fibre Extend
From: eyeofhoruscosmetics.com
Price: $38
This product from Byron Bay cosmetics label, Eye öf Hörus, left me seriously impressed. The tiny brush is the perfect size ensuring all product is kept on the brow, while the added fibres work to thicken and fill.

Brand: Benefit Cosmetics
Name: Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel
From: benefitcosmetics.com/au
Price: $39
This tinted eyebrow gel achieves full, natural looking brows with a glossy texture. The mini applicator brush makes it easy to apply with precision and blends easily. It makes it super quick to create defined brows and fit into your morning routine.

Brand: Garbo & Kelly Name Brow Gel
From: garboandkelly.com 
Price: $38 
Despite having a bit of shimmer in the formula, this gel looks quite natural once on. The brush is a little wide meaning there’s an increased risk of swiping it onto your forehead, but it wipes off pretty easily without smudging. Ideal if you want a quick, no-fuss result.
