Benefit cosmetics is pulling a rabbit out of their hat with their new product, Gimme Brow, out this month. Billed as a magic potion for brows, thin, sparse brows are supposed to magically appear with this brush-on fiber gel. The potion adheres to skin and hair, building brows where there were none before.
When I first got this product I thought it was a sample. The tube is pretty small, but being a brow product, you certainly don’t need a lot of it and I’m assuming it will last you awhile. Given that Benefit knows a little something something about eyebrows (they have a number of brow bars throughout North America), I didn’t have any doubts about this new product.
Now, since I am not lacking in the brow department, I got my coworker Dayna to try out the product since she has thin, sparse brows. The product comes in two colours, Light/Medium and Medium/Deep and I received the lighter of the two to try out.
As you can see, her brows look darker, fuller, and more natural. I didn’t bother to draw them thicker beforehand because I wanted to see how this product stands by itself. I also want to note that I wouldn’t necessarily use this as a brow pencil. To really have stand-out brows, I would draw them on first and then use this product for flawless-looking eyebrows. Compared to her “before” photo, her eyebrows seem darker and do look a bit fuller.
I myself have tried this product, and although I certainly do not need help in the eyebrow department, I have used it as a setting gel. According to Benefit, it is water resistant, long wearing, natural looking, buildable, and smudge proof. All of these claims I would say are totally true.
If you are looking for a magic wand to help you in the brow department, Benefit has you covered.
Are you going to try Benefit’s Gimme Brow?
Please note, I was sent this product from Benefit Cosmetics Canada. All opinions are my own.
