Review by Florian W. on 18 Jun 2023review stating The best brow glue ever !I tested a lot of different products but this one – the Honey Glue Original Superhold – is the absolute number one in Brow Glue. The definition and the hold are amazing. I am so in love with this product.

Love this product so much. Onto my second tub now. Keeps brows in place without having to have them plastered to your face and super shiny. I do usually cover with a tinted gel just to be sure no white residue peeks through. But this usually is manageable through rinsing the spoolie off every week or so. Please bring back the bigger pots now!!

It applies smoothly and evenly with fingers and deposits light coverage. Keeps oils at bay almost for the entire day. Looks flawless on the skin. Can’t compliment it enough. My routine is now so much faster. I wear it on its own with extra foundation and finish with a light dusting of finishing powder and I’m good to go.
