Benefit Gimme Brow Review

 
 
 
Every girl and her mother is enhancing their brows at the moment, I do wonder if this has all derived from IT girl Cara Delevingne and the brows that define her! I too like to fill in my sparse brows but I really do not like the fake drawn on look so have been on the look out for a natural alternative, without actually being 100% natural! Benefit recently came out with gimme brow which is basically a mascara for your eyebrows, at first it seemed like a rather strange concept to me as mascara for your eyelashes hardens as it dries and that wasn't something which I wanted to happen to my brows, don't worry I promise this doesn't do that!

The product is available in light/medium and medium/dark, I am not sure how different the two shades are but I am guessing it is extremely dramatic as I use the light/medium and my grandmother who has black hair was also advised to use it, so the dark must be incredibly dark! The wand is a lot shorter than a mascara wand with only 6 rows of bristles on the brush.
 
 
 
 
 
 
To apply the product you start at the beginning of your brow and make small strokes to mimic your hairs, I tend to touch the skin slightly so the fibres attach easier. Obviously add as much or as little product as you want. I still feel like a little bit of brow powder wouldn't go a miss, it makes your brow shape that bit more defined and fills in any gaps that this product has missed!
 
 
 
 
 
 
It is an excellent product and achieves a natural brow really well, I do find it has a bit of a funky smell though which luckily doesn't linger and for what it is I do feel it is overtly overpriced and I am sure the high street brands will follow in their footsteps so keep your eyes peeled!

  5. I've heard so much great things about this! I'm so desperate for Cara's eyebrows, but I don't think it would look good on me! Great review!
