Review | Benefit Gimme Brow in Shade 01, Light

Did you know Benefit have a new range of eyebrow products out? And wow, what a range it is. With 6 new Benefit Eyebrow products being added to the already 'eyebrow strong' collection, there is bound to be a product to suit your eyebrow dilemma. Whilst this product isn't a part of the new range, there is a whole new look to each eyebrow product as well as a whole array of new shades to suit more hair colours across each product in the range. 

I've never been much of an 'eyebrow person'. Whilst I admire a strong brow as much as the next person, I have never felt the need to touch mine. I'm quite fortunate in that I have never been much of a plucker so never hit that 'over-plucked' thin eyebrow stage as a teen - instead I left them to it so I have a naturally strong brow. Not Cara Delevingne strong, just strong enough to get the occassional 'who does your eyebrows?' comment now and again. 

Products wise I fill them in very lightly with my Collection Eyebrow Kit which has lasted me well over two years and considering it only cost me £3.99, I would say I got my moneys worth out of it! Fast forward two years where I have finally got to the stage where I am willing to give another product a try. Whilst I probably didn't set out to purchase this product itself, it came with my Glamour Magazine which is probably the best magazine gift you could get. My magazine-purchasing-because-of-the-free-gift days are over but if you were going to buy the magazine anyway, it's alright, right? The product I am reviewing today is the Benefit Gimme Brow in Shade 01, Light.

About the Benefit Gimme Brow:
"Our cult-favorite gimme brow tinted eyebrow gel contains tiny microfibers that adhere to skin & hairs, creating natural-looking fullness and definition. The custom, tiny tapered brush blends easily while the precision tip shapes hairs into place. Now available in 3 shades, including a NEW MEDIUM SHADE, so every gal can brush on fuller-looking brows."

Before I start I will say that this is a mini sample size at 1 g whereas the full-price full-sized version has a weight of 3 g. I have dark blonde hair so shade 01 in Light is probably perfect for me, although there are only two other shades in the range - 03 Medium and 05 Deep so there aren't as many shades for this product in comparison to the Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil which has 6 shades. 

Whilst my eyebrows are quite strong, they still need a little filling in here and there so as this product claims to make your eyebrows appear thicker and fuller, I was already sold on Gimme Brow, which must be popular as it is considered an award-winner on the Benefit website! I know the packaging to Benefit products isn't to everyone's tastes but I really like it. It really stands out and it looks nothing like any other make-up packaging from any other brands. Gimme Brow comes housed in a little silver tube which has the applicator within it's lid. The applicator is teeny-tiny. So, so teeny-tiny. To begin with you wonder why it's so small but actually, the size is perfect.

Okay, so maybe the small brush can make it slightly harder to apply the product to the thinner ends of the eyebrows as the brush isn't tipped so I find the product to get on the skin around my eyebrow and I end up having to cover it with concealer to hide but it is no big deal. Gimme Brow works wonders for the first 2/3 of the eyebrow where it is thicker in width - you simply brush the product through your eyebrows and it fills them in perfectly. I find the shade Light to suit me perfectly so it makes the eyebrows look really natural - so natural you forget it is even there. 

Whilst I may not have gone to the shop in search of this product to begin with, I've enjoyed using this product so much that once I have used this little 1 g tube up, I will probably buy the full-sized version, as well as taking a look at the other eyebrow products in Benefits range. This Gimme Brow may only be sample size but it works wonders and shows what the product can do perfectly. Well done, Benefit!

  7. I've always wanted to try the Benefit Gimme Brow eyebrow gel, it's such a cult product and now that there is a little bit more shades available, I believe I would be able to find my perfect match! And the teeny-tiny wand would actually be perfect for my thin brows!
