Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep - Review

Happy Tuesday, loves! Naturally, I had to do some shopping while in NYC last weekend. I mean, they had TWO Sephora's within a three block radius PLUS their VIB sale was going on. If that's not a sign, I don't know what is.

At Sephora, I bought OCC's Lip Tar Mini's (review will be up tomorrow!) and Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium / Deep which I had heard some pretty awesome things about from some of the beauty bloggers at the Rite Aid event. I tried it over the past few days - let's check out what I think about it!

Ugh. Benefit always suckers me in with their adorable packaging! They could probably sell me a rock as long as it had their cute box around it.

 Benefit Gimme Brow
Gimme Brow is a natural-looking brow volumizing brush-on fiber gel that adheres to both your skin and your eyebrows for fuller looking eyebrows. It comes in two buildable, waterproof shades: light/medium and medium/deep. I chose medium/deep because I have dark brown, almost black eyebrows. 

To use: Stoke brush to tip along brow to define shape. Comb through to blend and build.

The formula itself is pretty pigmented. I only needed two swipes to get the natural look I was going for. I also experienced no crunchiness that sometimes accompanies gel formulas. Naturally, I had to touch my eyebrows afterward (doesn't everyone?) and once it dried, these babies didn't move nor smudge. Dry time was like, two minutes. I also really liked the  size of the spooly brush because it let me be as precise as I wanted to be and get into the corners of my eyebrow.

I love the results! This definitely fills my drawn in eyebrow void. I feel like your eyebrow shape done the right way can totally change your face. I would describe my eyebrows as thick but there are some spots that could be filled in to make them look fuller. You guys don't even want to know how many times I've tried (and failed) to draw my eyebrows in. Cue Benefit Gimme Brow! I'm so ecstatic over this product and highly recommend it!

  1. This is really cool! My eyebrows are pretty sparse, so I've been thinking about "filling" them...this may be the perfect product to start with!

    1. I really, really love this! I'm horrible with filling my eyebrows with a pencil and this seemed to get the job done really well while still looking natural!

    1. It definitely is. I think it could even go darker if I built it up more.
