I don’t think I’m alone when I
say Benefit have the cutest products going around. Something about the quirky
and retro packaging appeals to the girly gal in all of us and with cute names
to match. Benefit has been around for years and I remember using the conveted
Rosy Tint stain years ago (back when I first discovered makeup). While I’ve sampled
some products from the range I’ve never actually purchased anything. I recently got the chance to try out the Gimme Brow, thanks to
Elle magazine (gift with purchase) and now I can fully understand the hype.
The world has gone eyebrow
crazy in recent times, and it’s all about a clean face, pouty lips and strong
eyebrows. Thanks to my genes, my eyebrows have always been pretty full but
never dramatic. I never realised how important brows are until I used the Gimme
Brow product. Simply put, it’s a staple in anyone’s makeup collection and is
the only brow product you’ll ever need.
I have the Gimme Brow in shade
03, which is a really popular shade. It’s a great medium brown shade and would
suit those with naturally light to medium brown. If your brows are quite dark you’d
probably be best going up to shade 04.
It’s an incredibly easy product
to use. All you need to do is swipe it over the eyebrow and then back again,
making sure to coat the eyebrow evenly and thoroughly. It has a gel formula so the application of the product is really simple. It darkens the eyebrows slightly and instantly gives you a polished look. For daytime, I like to only apply a couple of light coats, and I normally apply a few extra coats at night, just so they stand out a bit more.
I have it in a sample size, and I will definitely repurchase once I run out. Plus, the Benefit counter at Myer now sell sample sized products so it’s a good excuse to try out a few other products.
Have you tried the Gimme Brow? What is your holy grail eyebrow product?
