Got thin, sparse brows? Not anymore with the Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel ($22)! It comes in two shades, light/medium and medium/deep.
Since I have dark brown, almost black hair, I chose the medium/deep shade. This cute little tube contains a fiber gel formula that clinges to your skin and brows to give you thicker, fuller eyebrows.
The brush shape and size of Gimme Brow is the best thing to ever happen to a brow gel! Usually they are the same size and shape as a mascara brush which can get messy. You can have a hard time controlling how much is going where.
The tiny size of this brush makes it so much easier to get a precise application without ending up with globs of it in your brows. You can get up close and into tighter areas plus the brush doesn’t seem to hold onto and deposit excess gel. You can just quickly brush it through your brows and know that it will look good.
It does give my brows a fuller appearance without being too dramatic or too dark in color. It nicely covers any lighter or, ahem, gray brow hairs too. It’s a water resistant formula that doesn’t smear, smudge or budge all day long.
I also like how it keeps my brows nice and soft too. You don’t get that gelled down eyebrow look that looks and feels stiff and crunchy. But they do stay in place nicely all day.
Benefit Gimme Brow has quickly become one of my favorite products of 2013. Even though it is a bit pricey, it will become an all time staple for my everyday use.
