Review // Benefit Gimme Brow

I'm always up for trying a different brow product, so when I was given a free Gimme Brow with my brow wax, I was excited to try it. Gimme Brow is a tinted brow gel designed to make brows look fuller and lusher. 

Benefit Gimme Brow Packaging
PACKAGING

The first thing I noticed when I opened the packaging was that this tube is tiny. Like teeny-tiny. It's only 3g which seems pretty stingy for £18.50, especially as the brush picks up a lot of product. At the end of June, this packaging is being replaced with a far prettier design but the same size and price. As for the brush itself, it's a very small tapered spoolie with lots of fibres within the bristles.

APPLICATION

On application, I noticed quite a funky smell. It's a sort of fruity alcoholic scent, like cider. I'm not sure if I just got a dodgy tube or if they're all like that. The other big issue I have is that the brush picks up a huge amount of excess product which comes out in big lumps. This means there is a lot of wasted product, particularly annoying since the tube is so small, but the smaller clumps tend to get transferred onto my brows. It's also more difficult to clean the brush since it's attached to the lid. However, the tiny brush is easy to use with precision and the tapered shape of it means it gets into all those awkward corners.

RESULTS

Gimme Brow is available in two shades- light/ medium and medium/ deep. I settled on the latter shade and it's a good match for my dark brown brows. Since the product is a gel, it's quite a subtle finish and prevents that Sharpie brow look. Straight away, I noticed by brows looked much more neater, fuller and with no patchy areas whatsoever. It really makes my brow look as though it's been freshly shaped so it's perfect for those awkward days before a wax. The gel dries quickly without any stickiness or greasiness, and it remains smudge free all day.
Gimme Brow Benefit Review
I've been using Gimme Brow over my Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil to give my eyebrows a more groomed appearance. Since it was a free gift with my brow wax, I don't feel too concerned about the wasted product. I probably won't be buying a replacement when I've finished though. I will, however, be trying their new brow releases which I am really excited about!

  1. I also received this with my brow wax a month or so back and absolutely love it! It's perfect for giving that natural look and teamed with other products for a more dramatic brow! Benefit definitely do the best brow arch for sure and it's the only place I go now to get my brows done x

  2. I also got this free last year when they done the promotion, I agree its such a tiny tube and a lot of product comes out. On the plus side I do like the outcome of it and I may consider repurchasing but maybe using my boots points x

  3. I went to go and buy the new Soap & Glory version of this but when I picked it up from the stand I was shocked at how small it was an didn't buy it. I might still give it a try though as if I'm going to try any brow products this would probably be the type of product I'd go for x
