Everybody has been talking about Benefits Gimme Brow, so being a lover of all things brows I had to give it a try myself! Benefit Gimme Brow comes in two shades, 'Light Medium' and 'Medium Deep'. I went for the shade 'Light Medium' which is a ashy medium brown shade. To those of you who aren't familiar with this product, it is a brow 'fibre gel' which adhere's to the skin and hair to create brows where there were none. It claims to be buildable, water resistant, long wearing and natural looking. The wand is a tiny tapered mascara like wand. You can see tiny fibres if you look closely on the wand but they can't be seen once applied.
When I first tried this product, I used it on it's own and I wasn't wowed by it! I usually fill in my brows with powder/pencil. I have very fine eyebrows and I like a quite full brow, so when I used Benefits Gimme Brow on its own, it didn't give me as full of a brow as I would like. It filled in any gaps as well as adding a little extra thickness and gave a slightly fuller natural looking brow, but not as full as I would like. As I said I do have very fine brows so it just didn't do enough for me especially on the outer part of my brows. If you like a more natural look with just a little extra thickness or if you have fuller brows to begin with I think Gimme Brow would be perfect. I have been using it over my brows once I have filled them in with powder/pencil and I much prefer using it that way.
Overall I think this is a nice product, it does do what it claims to but for me it doesn't do enough in the thickness department. I prefer to use it over other brow products than on it's own. If you like a more natural brow look I would say this is for you
Let me know if you have tried this product? What do you think of it?
