Benefit Gimee Brow

Should you have read any of my previous reviews of Benefit products, you will know what a love/hate relationship I have with the brand. Boi-ing concealer? Love. Oh Wow foundation? Hate. They’re Real mascara? Love. They’re Real eyeliner? Hate. So having seen excellent reviews of this product, I was still skeptical since the hype has been so, so wrong on two occasions at least.

I’ve previously been smitten with the Sleek eyebrow palette which is very defining whereas Gimme Brow is a fibre based product designed to volumnise your brows so they look utterly natural despite the fact that you plucked them to oblivion in 2006.

Now unlike the other products I’ve disliked from Benefit, I wouldn’t say this one was less worth than 50p, I would just say it’s worth less than ยฃ5. I found that although it did darken and ever so slightly thicken my brows, it didn’t eliminate the need for a pencil or powder product. I’ve also tried Rimmel’s brow gel recently and found that to be just as good for strengthening my brow game. So forget the ยฃ18.50 and ignore the hype on this one.
