Benefit Speed Brow

I know that a lot of people are familiar with Benefit's Gimme Brow, but did you know that they also make a brow gel in similar packaging? I've been trying out Benefit's Speed Brow* ($22 CAD/0.10 oz.), and I thought that I'd share my thoughts on it with you today!

Benefit Speed Brow Packaging

"For gals on the go—this brush-on gel is the short cut to perfect looking brows. With a few quick strokes brows are set, tamed, and tinted. Now you're ready for living in the fast lane! Benefit's Speed Brow comes in one universal natural looking shade that is suitable for all brows." - Sephora

Benefit Speed Brow

As you can see, Benefit's Speed Brow is in very similar packaging to Benefit's Gimme Brow. However the brush for Speed Brow is larger, like a medium sized mascara wand. This brow gel does have a tiny bit of a tint to it (which you can see in the picture of the brush). However, the tint doesn't really show up on my brows, and it performs similarly to a clear brow gel, in my opinion. For that purpose, I've really been enjoying this product! I'll fill in my brows with a powder or pencil, and then set them with Benefit's Speed Brow. This gel dries to a natural finish, and it isn't crunchy and doesn't flake throughout the day. This formula keeps my brows in place all day long, and I think that it would help tame most brows. If you have very wonky brows, this might not be strong enough for you. 

Benefit Speed Brow Brush

If you need a truly tinted brow gel, I would recommend picking up Benefit's Gimme Brow. However, if you prefer to use a pencil or powder in your brows, this gel would make a great final step in your brow routine. I always love Benefit's packaging, it always puts a smile on my face! Have you tried Benefit's Speed Brow before? What are your favourite brow products? :)

  5. To me, this is pretty much useless, but I think it's a great soft intro product for people who are less bold with their brow game!

    1. Ya, I think that it would be good for someone just getting into brows! But I do still like it as a brow gel :)
