Busy Gal BROWS Tinted Brow Gel features a unique "needle-thin spoolie" that allows for more precise application than what you get from a standard brow gel. Better yet, the color stays put morning-to-night for worry-free brows.

This brow gel works due to its careful marriage of formula and brush. The fragrance-free formula clings to existing brow hairs and helps set them in place without looking stiff. The advantage of such a slim spoolie is that you can really target where you want to emphasize your brows (hello arches!). What if you have sparse brows? Angle the tip of the spoolie to subtly fill in those areas.

Shade-wise, you can pick from Taupe, Medium Brown and Black Brown. We're hoping Tarte expands that to include even more options in the future because we really like this product and would love to see options for all brow colors!

Pros:
  • Super-slim spoolie brush allows for targeted precision.
  • Grooms and fills in brows all-in-one.
  • Color stays put morning-to-night.
  • Doesn't leave hairs matted down.
  • Fragrance free.
Cons:
  • Limited shade selection.

Brand Overview

Tarte Cosmetics At-A-Glance

Tarte Cosmetics CEO and founder Maureen Kelly started Tarte in 1999, out of a desire to create a cosmetics line that “would prove that glamour can be good for you.” This comes in the form of products that highlight naturally-derived ingredients in their marketing campaigns, and occasionally taking swipes at the concept of synthetics in makeup.

This is ironic, as Tarte uses more than a few beneficial synthetically derived ingredients in their formulas—silicones, synthetic fragrances, preservatives and on and on. However, we’ll forgive them that as what’s ultimately important is whether their products meet your needs, and to that we can say the brand excels in many areas at what they do.

However, a few products are a bit on the pricey side and there are a few iffy shades and textures to consider among their foundations—noted in their respective reviews. A few caveats aside, most of Tarte's foundations, blush options, eye pencils and an ever-expanding range of innovative products demonstrate that color is what they do best.
