Benefit Gimme Brow

Today I have one of Benefit's new products to share with you, Gimme Brow* ($26 CAD/0.10 oz.). I'm always interested in Benefit's new products, and this one was no exception! A few months ago I saw Jayme (from Her Late Night Cravings) give her first impressions on this brow product, and she got me really interested in it. Read on to see my first impressions...

"This innovative brush-on fiber gel adheres to skin and hair creating brows where before there were none. It builds easily for thick, lush arches, thanks to a tapered brush for blending and a precision tip for shaping. The fiber gel is water resistant, long lasting, and buildable for natural-looking brows." - Sephora

I have the shade Light/Medium, but there is another shade in the line, Medium/Deep. This shade matches my eyebrows almost perfectly, which is hard to find for us natural blondes! This tinted brow gel is meant to both add colour and create a fuller look. The formula is waterproof and long-wearing (which normally translates to a crunchy finish), but Gimme Brow feels completely natural on my brows! I normally fill in my brows with a powder (I actually really like using a combination of Buck and Naked from Urban Decay's Naked Palette), and then I use a clear brow gel over top. Benefit's Gimme Brow is a really easy, one step product, but I have to say that it doesn't give me as much colour as I'd like to see. This product would be perfect for anyone that doesn't have any major issues with their brows, and they just need a hint of colour. Anyone with major bald spots would still need to fill in their brows in first. I do like the effect that this gives to my brows, it does make them appear a bit fuller. This is definitely a product that I would reach for on days when I want a more natural look.

Benefit's Gimme Brow is fairly expensive, especially when you compare it to other brow gels on the market. Gimme Brow is $26 CAD for 0.10 oz., whereas Anastasia's Brow Gel is $29 CAD for 0.28 oz. This tube is so tiny, I feel like I'm going go through it in just a few weeks! 

Benefit's Gimme Brow does an excellent job at creating a natural look, and helps to create thicker looking brows. If you don't need a lot of colour added to your brows, this would be a great brow product for you. Otherwise, you can pencil in your brows, and then add Gimme Brow as a final step. I love that this gel feels natural on my brows, and it keeps my brows in place all day long. The tiny brush (think Clinique Bottom Lash small) is very easy to control, and allows for precise application. 

Have you tried out Benefit's new Gimme Brow? I would love to hear what you think about it! :)

  1. This sounds really neat but I don't have major brow problems that justify the price tag on my student budget :(

  4. Great review! :D Ugh, I have such thin brows (naturally) with bald spots, so I like the idea behind this. I need to get something to hold my brow hairs in place, since they grow crazy long and flop all over the place (I have to trim them!! O_O;), so this sounds really interesting!
