Everyone is going crazy about this trend that is going around about eyebrow gel extensions? What are they? Where do they come from?
Forget going to the salon and micro blading. Vogue Korea recently posted a video of the new eyebrow gel extensions that is going to transform your brows. The internet suddenly went mad for this new trend but will this product be the way to achieving perfect Cara Delevingne brows by one product?

Try #Reallyyy’s eyebrow extension to fill your empty brow area.
Thicker brows withought the months of growing and pain, will this be possible?
This Korean product is made out of a translucent gel mixed with fibre’s that act like hair that are supposed to stick to the natural brow and make the brow look more full and shaped. In Vogue Korea’s caption, it suggests not placing the fibres anywhere but the end of your eyebrow to fill in any sparse areas. The product comes with a brush that is attached to the pot at the bottom of the product that contains the hair like fibres. This product is rumoured to come out in the UK but is already on sale in the US retailing for $22.54 but it is originally retailed in Korea.
Famous YouTubers started to review the product and test it out. Nicki Tutorials tested this weird product out in one of her recent videos. Her reaction to the brow product didn’t go down very well as she said in her video: “when you apply them it is really hard to manoeuvre them into place and to really get them to sit where you want them to sit”. She also mentioned that is a very time-consuming product and takes a while to apply.
If you don’t want to pay any customs charge or crazy prices from the US there are similar products out there that works similar to the ‘Reallyyy brow extensions’.
