Review | Benefit Gimme Brow

Are we all sick of Benefit brow products yet!? I thought not! Alongside last month's Goof-Proof Brow Pencil and Marie Claire's offering of Ready, Set, Brow! setting gel, you can also pick up a super-cute mini of Gimme Brow, which is described as a "brow-volumising fibre gel" for an absolute snip at £2 with the August 2016 issue of Glamour UK. There's a choice of two shades available with Glamour; I have 05, which is the deeper shade of the two, with the other option being Shade 01. [Check out the rest of this month's magazine freebies!]
Benefit-Gimme-Brow-Review
In line with the rest of Benefit's newly re-launched brow range, the packaging of Gimme Brow is silver and kind of space-age - I really like it, and the 1g mini size is so cute! The wand is tiny, which makes it easy to get a really precise application to your brows; my favourite way to use Gimme Brow is to gently brush my brows up and out, which really allows me to build the volume, and ensure every brow is coated with product, before brushing back into shape.
Benefit-Gimme-Brow-New
Shade 5 is basically my perfect shade and is the one I'd have chosen from the range if I was buying Gimme Brow at a Benefit counter; the tiny wand makes it really easy to use and I think even a complete brow novice could get the hang of this within a go or two. I also really like the formula, which dries firm enough to keep my at-times unruly brows looking neat, but not feeling at all stiff or crispy. It's enough to add fullness and definition, whilst still looking really natural in my brows, which I hope you can see with the before-and-after photos below (sorry the lighting is so different, I don't know what happened!). I've also been pleased to note that I've not had any problems with fibres dropping onto my skin, which can sometimes happen with fibre products like this.
Benefit-Gimme-Brow-Before-And-After
Gimme Brow is priced at £18.50 for the full-sized 3g product, available from Debenhams here; the range consists of three shades - 01 Light, 03 Medium and 05 Deep. There's actually 10% off at the time of writing, making it £16.65, but I'm not sure how long that offer is valid for. Obviously if you're in the UK and like the sound of Gimme Brow, I'd really recommend picking up Glamour magazine this month for just £2!
I have really enjoyed having this product in my collection and, as much as I'm loathe to spend that much, I do see myself buying the full-size; I might try and pick up another sample-size while they're still available! Have you tried any of Benefit's new brow range? Which products do you like the sound of most?
