Benefit Gimme Brow... Brow Dreams Full-Filled


 



When Gimme Brow started popping up on, what seemed like EVERY beauty blog, I was adamant I wouldn’t fall for the hype. Surely it was just another version of Benefit Speed Brow or Maybelline Brow Drama that I didn’t need, right? WRONG! When I found myself delayed at the airport last week, what was a girl to do but hot foot it to duty free to play with make up. Then before I know it I’m at Benefit falling in love with the very product I was avoiding.
Gimme Brow is different. It doesn’t just tint brows or comb them in place. It magics brows where they don’t even exist. The innovative brush-on fibre-gel adheres to skin and hair, filling sparse patches and thickening brows naturally. The tapered brush is tinie-tiny and absolutely perfect for precision shaping and filling the hard to reach gaps. The formula is thick, pigmented and has a natural matte finish. I thought I had my brow routine down, but this has changed things. I can wear this alone on low maintenance days as it gives just enough coverage to fill and disguise stubborn gaps and comb unruly hairs into place, I can also use it in conjunction with my HD Brow palette – the two together give va va voom brows! The natural finish is buildable and lasts all day.



Available in two shades light/medium and medium/dark. The darker of the two works perfectly for me, in fact I’d say it matches my natural brow colour perfectly. At £17.50/3g (£14.85 duty free) I did think it was on the pricey side, especially given how small it is, but you can’t put a price on perfect luscious arches... at least that’s what I tell myself.

Benefit Gimme Brow £17.50/3g, available at Boots, Debenhams and Feel Unique.

    1. What do you do Abigail? Most days I'm still using HD Brows to fill the larger gaps, then swipe gimme brow to beef them up and finish them perfectly, but on Sunday when I was just heading out for a walk I used gimme brow by itself and I didn't feel naked! x

  4. Ahhh I've been looking for a product like this for ages! tired of using eyeshadow to fill in my brows because every brow pencil I purchase I feel like I'm harshly colouring in a kids book in order to achieve any sort of effect! Will definitely take a look at this when I'm at duty free in a couple of weeks, (oh the wonders of cheaper beauty products)
