Oh brows – they are a bit of a touchy subject for me. Thanks to my ‘rebel’ teenage self who used to pluck every last bit of hair she sees, now I am the not-so-proud owner of two sparse, uneven and unruly brows. Let’s just say that when it comes to brows, channeling my inner Care Delavigne is a mission impossible. After trying (and not really liking) a ton of brow products, what I really needed was a miracle to happen. And very recently it did – a little package from Benefit arrived at my doorstep with their latest release – Gimme Brow* (£17.50). Benefit definitely know what they are doing when they talk brows and this miracle worker proved just that and has made my eyebrows one lucky pair.

When you first look at Gimme Brow it looks like a regular brow gel but really – it’s so much more than that! This brow-volumizing fibre gel not only keeps the hairs in place but it also tints them and makes the brows look fuller and more defined. Gimme Brow comes with a teeny tiny wand, which is so easy to use and it’s an ideal size – it goes right in there and covers every hair without being messy. The amazing fiber gel sticks to the skin and hairs and fills in those gaps perfectly. Gimme Brow boosts the brows beautifully and makes them look super natural and subtle at the same time.

What I adore about this lovely product is that it offers amazing color pay-off and is also very buildable. Just swipe this beauty over your brows and if you have naturally fuller brows you will be good to go. If you fancy more tint and dimension you can apply two or three layers of the gel and it will maximize your brows without making them look crispy or feel heavy. Simples! Gimme Brow comes in two shades – light/medium and medium/dark and they are both rather universal. I have both but since I’m blonde I opt for the lighter shade and I love that it has more ashy tones and doesn’t lean towards yellow. This gem also stays put for the whole day and is also water resistant. Brilliant touch.

So there you have it – my new Holy Grail brow product that takes me one step closer to the desired bigger and fuller brows. Gimme Brow is definitely one of the best releases of the year so far and it’s perfect for everyone’s needs. It’s time to kiss goodbye the sparse, unruly hairs and welcome our new, perfectly defined brows!

Have you tried Gimme Brow? Do you love it as much as I do?

Lots of love,

  6. I'm quite intrigued by this, i love the maybelline brow drama but the wand is quite big and clumsy so this one looks much better :)

  8. I've tried it and have done my own review on it. I like it as a setting product, but not really on its own. It does nothing much for me and I have full brows.

  28. Sounds amazing! Luckily my brows are really low-maintenance and I like using brow pencils etc but especially when you're away or on the go or anything, it would be wonderful to have just one product and this is colour and gel (and brush) in one! I absolutely need to have this in my life.
