Oh wow do I have a big review today. And this is a very photo very heavy. I got carried away....If there is one brand I trust with my brows, it just has to be Benefit. I adore their Brow Zings, and only strayed over to my Illamasqua Eyebrow Cake, out of eyebrow curiosity. As thanks to Cara Delevingne I am a borderline eyebrow obsessive, so when my favorite brand brought out a new eyebrow product I was practically queuing at the doors!
Welcome to the eyebrow scene, Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Gel. And even though I am slightly challenged in the brow department, gel is the one product I've never tried. Gimme Brow is designed to be a "Brow-Volumizing Fiber Gel" that adheres to the skin and hair, creating brows where there weren't any to begin with. If you look closely at the brush you can see tiny fibers that look like little hairs, and I must say I was a bit dubious that this little tube of gel would provide my ideal bushy brow look that I normally achieve from a shadow.
Gimme Brow comes in an adorable, typical Benefit style packaging, and small enough to fit in my ever overflowing makeup bag. Coming in two shades, "Light" and "Medium/Deep" as I like my eyebrows dark, obviously I went for the deep, but if you're not a fan of filling in your brows so dark, but you want the shapely effect I'd recommend going for "Light". The "Medium/Deep" is more of an ashy brown which makes it look a bit more natural than if it was a darker brown. I would say they could do with a few more colour options, as I am very sure not every person will fall into the two colours...
Anyway little moans aside, Gimme Brow doesn’t just tint the brows, nor does it simply comb them into place, this beauty goes the whole way. The tiny, tiny brush is able to get right in there, it combs each individual hair to maximise and define. This little tube of gel is amazing, and nothing like I have tried before. I have shown the two different colours (thank you mum for lending me your eyebrow!) and you can just see what a different Gimme Brow makes, plus they look natural. Just like a tint would, rather than the infamous Scouse Brow. No ifs or buts, you need this in your life.
