Benefit Gimme Brow

Benefit Gimme BrowPIN IT

Benefit recently launched a new product for brows called Gimme Brow, which is a brow volumising fibre gel designed to thicken brows in the same way fibre mascaras are aimed at thickening lashes.  It looks and sounds pretty much like any other type of tinted brow mascara that’s already available, but certainly from my own experience and from reading other reviews, it is much more impressive than expected.

Benefit Gimme Brow Light Medium, Medium DarkPIN IT

Benefit Gimme Brow is available in two shades – light/medium and medium/deep – both of which I can use as they’re extremely natural in finish, it just depends on what sort of definition I need.  The product attaches to existing brows and thickens them whilst also filling in gaps with a tint, leaving brows looking markedly thicker and more defined but still very natural.  Usually with brow products you have to either go for natural and barely noticeable, or over-the-top definition that looks great but extremely unnatural, so this offering from Benefit has nicely bridged the gap between the two.

The brush is well designed as it’s small and tapered, which means it doesn’t pick up too much product and is easy to fill in sparser areas with shorter hairs.  You can build up product for quite a bit of natural definition or just stick with the one coat if you’re like me and want a bit of help but nothing too major.  If you’re a fan of the “no make-up make-up” look then this is a product worth investigating as it really is fab.  In the picture below I’m wearing one coat of the light/medium shade on my ‘desperately in need of a thread’ eyebrows!

    […] As I said, pencil-style brow fillers aren’t the only way to go, and if you’re after a very natural yet sculpted finish, I recommend trying something a bit more faffy but well worth it! I have a couple of brow products from Tarte, the first being the Amazonian Clay Volumizing Brow and Hair Powder which is a slightly shimmery powder in a very soft and blendable formula that’s just a dream to use.  It’s very natural so this is for you if you want just a hint of colour and to fill in the gaps.  Don’t worry about the shimmer as all it does is add a bit of a barely-there sheen to brows, you’re not left with a 70’s sparkle! This is currently just under £24 at QVC and it comes with a brush here – link – I use the Blonde shade.  Next in the Tarte duo is the product I’m using most when I have time to do a good job on my brows (and I’m trying to make time as much as possible) which is the Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse and Brush which is available in three shades and I use Taupe, which is perfect for me.  This product is a buildable cream formula that gives you serious wow brows without going too TOWIE; there’s a lot of flexibility as you can use just a touch to fill in gaps, a bit more for more definition, or you can do the whole brow for a very impactful finish.  The brush is also extremely handy and I really enjoy using this!  It’s £24 here – link. Last up is the ‘if you just buy one thing…’ product, which is Benefit Gimme Brow.  This is the product that kick-started my most recent love for brows again and it’s been a long one due to the sheer ease of use of this.  You use it like a mascara for your brows and it adds both colour and definition, but it also adds a bit of volume too, so it’s great if your brows are on the sparse side.  For five minute make-up faces or when you’ve overslept…or if you really just can’t be arsed, add this to your collection and you won’t regret it! It’s £17.50 here – link – and I use shade Light/Medium.  You can also read my full review of Benefit Gimme Brow here. […]
