Benefit Gimme Brow Review

Benefit Gimme Brow* - £17.50

Benefit are always on-the-money when it comes to brow products, and their latest release is definitely no different. An avid user of their Brow Zings product, as soon as I heard about the launch of a new Benefit brow product I eagerly awaited its appearance on the shelves. 

Gimme Brow is definitely going to revolutionise the way we do our brows. Whilst I'm a self-confessed powder lover, this new product has definitely got me reevaluating how I fill in my brows on a daily basis. You know how powders and pencils can sometimes look a bit 'false'? Well Gimme Brow solves these problems by giving you natural-looking brows that still make an impact. They're basically your brows, but better.

So, what actually is this product? Well, it's a brush-on fibre gel that cleverly adheres to skin and hair, making it ideal for filling in those brows. It comes with an itty bitty brush that is ideal for applying on your brows, and it kind of magically fills them in as you lightly brush it through. I'll admit I might have got a bit carried away upon first application and ended up with a few little clumps here and there, but I realise now it's because I had WAY too much product on the brush. You only need a tiny bit to pop on your brows and you're good to go. 

I completely adore this product and I've found myself reaching for it far more than my usual powder. It's so quick and easy to use, which is great, as I have been known to spend far too long filling in my brows of a morning. A quick brush of these through them though and it's all done in a matter of seconds. I'm wearing the darker brow gel in the above picture, and it is actually a perfect match for my brows. Obviously if you're really fair or prefer the natural look then go for the lighter shade. 

Have you tried Benefit's latest brow product? What did you think?

  7. Ah so glad to hear you're an avid powder user...I also use browzings and was scared this new one wouldn't help to fill in my brows properly...I think I may have to purchase now!


  8. This is the first review of this product that I've stopped to read, because I saw the words 'what actually is this product'! You've got me wanting to try it out now, and I agree, it does look so much more natural than the powder versions. xxx

  9. I can't wait to try this product out
