You can’t read a beauty magazine or browse a beauty website nowadays without hearing about the latest revolutionary brow product. As you all know from previous posts my natural brows are very fair and quite thin in parts. Whilst I’ve tried lots of fabulous brow pencils which make my brows look a little fuller ultimately the look isn’t always completely natural. So when I read that Benefit had refreshed their best selling Gimme Brow I had to snap it up. Gimme Brow+ uses volumising microfibres to give brows natural looking fullness and definition.
So what’s the difference between the original benefit Gimme Brow and benefit Gimme Brow+? The original was taken off shelves last year after it failed to meet stringent quality controls. Benefit Gimme Brow+ has a refreshed formula and really cute new packaging with benefits famous tongue in cheek styling.
The product comes in 3 shades 01 (blonde), 03 (dark brown) And 05 (black). As my brows are pretty light I went for shade 01. It has a simple mascara style brush applicator. To apply the product I brushed the gel through my brows. The tapered brush is quite small so it’s not too fiddly. You only get a small amount of product each time so my brows are not overloaded with gel, although I did have to go over it a few times for full coverage. My brows started to look a lot fuller after the first few applications and the finish was quite natural. I was quite impressed with the colour match as well. I did use Gimme Brow+ to extend my shorter brow a little and despite there not being much hair to grip to it still looked pretty natural.
The gel is really long lasting and my brows still looked full by the evening. Unlike other gels like Wunderbrow which leave my brows feeling rigid, Benefit Gimme Brow+ still felt quite soft after applying. A must have for your makeup bag. I give it 4/5
