Today I am going to be reviewing a Gimme Brow in a brand new shade 3 from Benefit’s latest brow collection. I was extremely excited to be one of the very limited numbers of bloggers to have a sneak preview of the collection in May on Good Ship Benefit in London, Embankment. Side note: if you haven’t visited the ship, you definitely missing out a lot! So basically, Benefit came up with 13 NEW products and they all are for your brows. What? Yes, you’ve read this! With a help of these fantastic products you are able to deal with any of you brow’s issues: whether it’s sparse brows, shapeless undefined brows, uneven patchy brows etc. I’ve decided to review the Gimme Brow for you first, because 1. I love this product 2. It was launched in a new shade 3. The packaging is just awesome!
What is Gimme Brow?
Gimme Brow is a brush-on fibre gel which adheres to skin and hair. It designed to create brows where before there were none. It builds easily and quickly for thicker lush brows. With the help of its type of the brush – for blending and precision – this allows you to create your own shape which is best suited to your face. This product was available in two shades light/medium and medium/dark previously. Now it’s available in 3 shades – light, medium, deep. This gel based formula is water resistant, allowing it to stay on for the entirety of your day. Brows look fuller yet still natural.
Gimme Brown comes in a small silver tube with a screw top lid. Attached to the screw top lid there is a mini version of a tiny tapered brush. Very precise! The brow brush allows you to shape and sculpt your brows in the easiest possible way. The brush is tapered for easy blending and has a precision tip for shaping. I absolutely adore new magical branding and silver design of the brow collection. Benefit Cosmetics seems to go away of the retro theme and creating more cool, bright and colourful packaging for their latest launches.
I’m very glad that Benefit finally launched the third shade for Gimme Brow. Now everyone would be able to find the perfect shade of the brow gel. Shade medium number 3 is my perfect shade. It fills my brows seamlessly and looks very organic with my complexion and hair colour.
What do I like about Gimme Brow?
I love how small a nifty this bottle is. This makes Gimme Brow the ideal beauty tool to take anywhere and everywhere. You can fit this little magic wand in any size bag and purse. Perfect for these little touch-up moments. Especially in summer!
The small tapered brush makes for an easy application. I find it super easy to achieve a fabulous high arch full brow. The Medium allows me to create a fuller-looking brow without them looking over-drown and over the top. Don’t worry, ladies, if you do make a mistake the. This gel based formula is extremely easy to remove as it simply wipes away. The formula is buildable, water-resistant and long-wearing.
Beauty Tip: if you made a mistake and applied the brow gel where was not needed, just wait until the gel dries out and remove it with a spoolie brush!
What do I dislike about Gimme Brow?
Gimme Brow does take a little while to dry, which can be a pro and con. Ideal for if you have gone wrong and made a mistake as it can be easily fixed. A con is that you do need to let the solution dry before trying to put clothes over your head as you don’t want to take your brows off. I would not recommend applying Gimme Brow on top of other brow products as it can remove them.
Where can you buy Gimme Brow?
The new brow collection from Benefit is launching nationwide from 24th June 2016. You can purchase Gimme Brow from any Benefit kiosks which can be found in most department stores and also online at Lookfantastic.
As one of the Benefit’s bloggers, I have the opportunity to attend an event called Brow Time every month and discover all new products from the range. Brow Time takes place at Benefit Cosmetics’ flagship store on Carnaby Street. Everyone is welcomed to have their brow’s groomed as well as see and buy all the upcoming beauty products Benefit has to offer. I would like to thank All the wonderful ladies at the Benefit Brow Time events for always making me feel welcome and for allowing me to have amazing brows! I’d also like to recommend my readers to attending Brow Time. It’s the best and the easiest way to perfect your brows according to your face shape and complexion.
