Review | Benefit Ready, Set, Brow!

If you saw my post on August's magazine freebies, you'll know that there are a couple of Benefit products up for grabs with the glossies this month! Amongst them, Marie Claire comes with a 3.5ml sample of Benefit's Ready, Set, Brow! which is a "24-hour invisible shaping & setting gel for brows". Having recently re-launched their entire brow range with a host of new products, Benefit seem keen to get these products into our make-up bags... but is Ready, Set, Brow! worth picking up?
Benefit Ready, Set, Brow!
The sleek, silver packaging is in keeping with the rest of the newly re-branded brow collection and I quite like it. The plastic tube is moulded rather than being just a plain tube, with the lid screwing on securely and uncapping to reveal a rubbery plastic mascara-like wand, which isn't round but is instead flat, with longer spikes on one side, and shorter ones on the opposite side. I'm not explaining it very well, I know, but hopefully you can kind of see what I mean in the photo below.

I've found that the longer spikes are perfect for running through the brows to arrange all the hairs neatly, whilst the shorter ones are great for the more precise tails of my brows. I find that the wand is well-designed and works well to quickly and easily get my brows into position, coating them evenly with the gel, with no overloading with product.

The gel is, as anticipated, clear in colour, so I've been using it after filling in my brows - below, I've used Benefit's Goof Proof Brow Pencil, which I've been loving! The top photo shows Goof Proof alone, whilst the bottom photo has Ready, Steady, Brow! over the top. Now personally, I can't see any difference - I'd say Benefit are true to their word with the claims of invisibility. I can just about feel the gel when I touch my brows, but they don't feel stiff, uncomfortable, or sticky in any way.

Once the gel has dried, which takes less than a minute for me, my brows are set. If your brows tend a little towards the unruly, whether or not you fill them in, I'd say this is well worth a shot! Indeed, if you don't fill your brows in, the fact that this is invisible means it'd be pretty much perfect for just keeping them looking neat and tidy. The full-sized Ready, Set, Brow! is £18.50 for 7ml, available from Debenhams here; you can pick it up with Marie Claire until the end of the month at just £3.99, though, so I'd definitely suggest doing that if you can! Have you tried any of Benefit's new brow range? Do you like the sound of Ready, Set, Brow!?

  4. I think a clear mascara would do the same thing, it's a bit pricey for an invisible brow gel, great review. I love Benefit packaging xxx

  6. I have been loving reading everyone's reviews on all the Benefit samples in the mags (I agree, Benefit seem uber eager to get us addicted) and this one is really interesting! The brush sounds such a good idea for honing your eyebrow game.

    Thanks for sharing,
