Apologies for the ever so slightly late product of the month for February, but I am sure you will totally understand when I say it was because I was waiting to get my eyebrows threaded before sharing it with you!
I have brunette hair, yet for some reason very fair brows. It was only in recent years that I started to colour my brows with product to try and help define my naturally fair brows against the contrast of my dark hair. I couldn’t help but wonder why I wasn’t doing it years before! Personally speaking, I am not a fan of the dark, heavy, almost painted on brow that seems to have become popular over recent years , and that was what had initially put me off trying this product. However, as my brows are particularly sparse and fair, I decided I would try this out and was delighted when I was given this as a gift at Christmas.
Benefit Gimme Brow is available in two colours – Light / Medium and Medium / Dark. My shade is Light / Medium which is perfect for my fair complexion. It is a nice natural brown colour that translates well once applied.
This brow volumizing fibre gel promises to adhere to the skin and the hairs for fuller looking brows. To use, I gently stroke the brush tip along the brow to define the shape. I then use a brow comb to brush the fibres through the hair and neaten up the finish.
My reasons for awarding this my product of the month are not only because I think the product is easy to use, but also because of the ability to actually stay where I apply it! I don’t know about you, but I have very oily skin that gets worse as the day progresses (I can only thank working in a warm office environment for this!) and I have found on the odd occasion I have used other products, that the product works its way across the centre of my brows! The Benefit Gimme Brow Gel will not create a full brow look, and will not create hairs that are not there, however it does thicken up any brow hairs you have that are in need of a little extra volume. I think this is a really natural way to enhance brows and for that reason, is a winner in my book.
You can purchase Benefit Gimme Brow for £18.50 from Benefit counters or stockists. You get 3g of product and I have used it more or less every day since Christmas and I have plenty left.
I hope you found this post useful.
Talk to you all soon x
