Clear Mascara for Brow Grooming?

Beauty Notes | Lucky published a blog today: Five Steps Toward the Best Brows Ever and Step 4 of 5 consists of using Clear Mascara by Maybelline. 

Back in Jan ('10) I wrote a blog about this product. And, over the last several months, I've been using the gel formula in the tube for slicking down (i.e. "setting") my brows for a fab finish, and it works! But honestly I never told anyone because I thought it was a little weird ... using clear mascara for brows and all. Anyways. I was ecstatic to find out that I'm not the only one using the product in [this] manner, as a Lucky blogger is doing it, too! Besides, now the mascara is being advertised as "America's Favorite Mascara for Lash and Brow" via Maybelline. Shut. The. Front. Door. I could have sworn that wasn't the tag line when I originally bought the mascara (but I could be wrong ... whatevs).

In terms of using Clear Mascara for what it was actually intended forwhich is eyelashesI just don't. Truthfully, applying the clear mascara gel to my lashes does not do a whole lot of "super shiny" finishing, as Makeup Artist Carmindy suggested (to Glamour) a while ago. Carmindy also commented that the product is like "hair gel for lashes." I say it's simply hair gel for brows!

In any event, the Lucky blog reminded me to touch base and share my opinion of the product since I never did give an update. 

Have any of YOU used this product? What do you think? YAY or NO WAY?
