There is just so much excitement I feel behind the purchase of every Glossier product.
I am constantly wooed by the simple yet so eloquently designed formula and though that goes behind each product. After religiously recommending Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser and Cloud Paint to people, I stumbled upon something. And it was to become a new staple in my routine!
Glossier’s Boy Brow changed my eyebrow game forever. I have moderately thick brows and yet Boy Brow made them look so feathery and fluffy!
Sadly, Glossier Boy Brow is priced a tad bit high compared to the amount of product you get. So the price really becomes an issue when you have to replace it every 2 months.
And the solution to that is the best Glossier Boy Brow dupes! I have figured out 8 of them, so keep reading!
Glossier Boy Brow: An Overview
So what is the deal, you ask?
The magic that comes in that tiny little jar is addictive. You start with one coat and then you do not stop using it till the spoolie comes out dry.
The formula, even though it may feel like conventional brow pomade, is much more interesting than it seems. It has almost no waxy, tacky feel to it. Neither does it give you crispy brows. Each coat leaves your brows feeling soft, yet staying put for long hours.
You get feathery brows that feel natural due to the flexibility the brow product allows. I love how it thickens to make your brows fluffy, and also conditions them!
You will find this in 5 shades. My only complaint is the amount we get for the price.
So what could be a possible Glossier Boy Brow dupe? Let us find out!

This clear brow gel by NYX is a total staple in a lot of people’s routine. For an everyday makeup, pair this with some skin tint and a little Balm Dot Com! And I also should mention that it holds the shape of your brows just like Glossier Boy Brow.
You can also use this on your eyelashes to hold the curl. Amazing stuff, I must say!

Another tinted gel that is a spectacular alternative to Glossier Boy Brow. Why? Similar to Glossier Boy Brow, this gel holds shape without making your brows look or feel stiff. The tint adds definition that truly makes your eyebrows look well-sculpted.

Another brow product by NYX! This too only comes in one shade. Since it is clear, it suits eyebrows of any and every shade, so that is good.
The name is truly quite fitting. Just like a glue, it holds your brows up in place for up to 16 hours! So in this case, I find that it does a better job than Glossier Boy Brow.
It can give you that soap brows effect without being too stiff to work with. The fun packaging is just an added bonus! I recommend this to people who have thick brows and want to tame them without adding extra tint.
