Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep

I picked this guy up at the Sephora VIB sale, I absolutely love Benefit brow products so this was high on my list of things to try. It has not disappointed.

This stuff touts itself as a “brow-volumizing fiber gel” and thats pretty much exactly what it is. It adds volume to your brows and sets them at the same time. The tiny brush makes it really easy to use, especially after the big mother-trucker brushes most brow products have on them. We aren’t all Cara Delevingne, lets be real.

I think this works best if you already have plenty of brow hairs, if you need to draw your brows on, or draw in a shape this won’t really work as well. The product acts like a volumizing mascara, so it needs your hairs to build on. So if you don’t have the infrastructure, its basically just a brow gel.

As a brow gel, I really like it. Its easier to control and less crunchy than the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel, which I like a lot, but this one is easier for everyday. Its a really solid all-in-one product since it adds color and volume to my brows but also set them for the day. I love using it on rushed mornings when I just need a little brow boost.

Overall, the caterpillars have really taken well to this product, but I wouldn’t recommend it to people who build their brows from nothing on the daily. You can get it in two colors (Light/Medium or Medium/Deep) at Sephora or online for $22.

The rundown: A (but only if you’re hairy like me)

  1. I love the little brush! I wish there were a few more shades, the lightest option is still too much of a red-toned brown for my blonde brows. I’m currently using the Jane Iredale tinted brow gel which is a good one, but it could benefit form a little brush like this.

  2. Hey Natalie, thanks for the review! I can see that this makes your brows more polished and tamed! It most probably won’t work for me because I have very sparse brows and I practically have to draw them on, but for people who are naturally blessed with a full set of brows, this seems great!
