After my not-so-pleasant time with Anastasia’s Brow Wiz, I decided to exchange it for another brow product that has had equal hype over these past few months. I had believed this whole time that Benefit’s Gimme Brow product was just an expensive brow gel but I was very wrong and I’m so upset that it’s taken me this long to get hip to this!
Gimme Brow is considered a ‘brow-voluminizing fiber gel’ which means that there is a tinted gel but within that gel are fibers that cling easily to both your eye brows and your skin making them appear fuller and keeps the color on longer. I had the shade medium/deep and it’s definitely the right one for me. That being said, it is a bit cool so if you have any kind of warmth to your hair like I do, I would recommend using this in conjunction to another brow product that you usually use. Below you can watch a video that I recorded that shows what this looks like in my brows on top of my usual brow powder (Urban Decay’s ‘Secret Service’ eyeshadow) and also just on it’s own.
What makes this different than other brow gels aside from the fibers is the size of the brush. It’s very small so you get the color exactly where you want it and not anywhere that you don’t (unless you use too much pressure). It’s a very unique product that has been nothing but great over the time that I’ve had it so far.
