Okay, we know you saw the headline and you're thinking: whaaaat? But hear us out. Glossier Boy Brow's creamy, wax-like substance is great for giving brows a visibly thicker and gloriously fluffy look when applied. This cult beauty favourite contains Oleic Acid, Lecithin, and Atelocollagen to condition and moisturise brows making it perfect for giving your edges a little thickness and grooming boost.

It's also is alcohol-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, cruelty-free, appropriate for all skin types, hypoallergenic, ophthalmologist tested and dermatologist tested. What doesn't this little wonder in a tube do?!
As you would when using it on your brows, just brush the wand through any sparse areas around your hairline and watch the magic happen. The petite tip on the applicator makes it great for precision application without flakiness. Our founder Aasiyah has trialled this technique for months and it actually works!
It's a handy way to top up a thinning hairline in a pinch and works with other brands too. MILK Makeup's Kush Fiber Brow Gel is available in a wider range of shades and the formula's unique heart-shaped fibres add extra thickness. If you're on a budget, ELF's Wow Brow Gel can also help thicken up sparse edges.
