Benefit Gimme Brow

Benefit Gimme Brow ($22) is Benefit’s new Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel that launches this Fall. This brush on fiber gel promises to adhere to skin and not hair allowing you to build brows to a thicker, fuller finish.

Imma tell you my brows grow like weeds and I don’t use powders, gels, or fillers of any kind however, I know those with thinner brows might just appreciate this product.

So here are a few swatches for ya!

Benefit Gimme Brow 2

Benefit Gimme Brow is available in two shades selections of Light/Medium and Medium/Deep. Benefits promises long wear with a water proof formula that creates natural looking results that are buildable. The product has a small tapered spool brush to precise shaping.

I haven’t personally tried them myself because as I said my brows just don’t need filling, I wish they did!

Gimme Brow is available now at Sephora, Sephora, Ulta, Ulta.com, Benefit counters and locations, as well as online at benefitcosmetics.com

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I picked up the light/medium shade at the Birchbox Local shop this weekend. I’m a big fan of the Sonia Kashuk tinted brow gel, so I’m excited to give this one a try. The little brush is so cute too! haha

    Definitely going to try this stuff. The girl who does my brows at the Ulta Benefit Brow Bar was telling me about this a while ago I think!

  • Erin

    Thanks for the update, I hadn’t heard about these! I like the look of the light/medium. I have some trouble finding colors that are light enough to still look natural on my blonde brows.

  • Lauren

    The product sounds interesting, but the swatches are underwhelming me with the pigmentation.

  • Morgan

    I’d love to try these, wish there was an even lighter colour for blonde girls though! Love the idea of a smaller spoolie, nice one Benefit!

    i have this and i really love love love it (i am spare at the tail end of the brow) and it helps build up and ‘volumize’! I think the best part is that it acts like a nice brow tamer but doesn’t leave brows crunchy and it is sooooo natural looking! many times when i attempt brows i always felt like i looked like a crazy russian spy with seriously intense eyebrows, but this helps me polish up my look nicely and naturally! <3 YAY! Thanks for teh swatches, Muse! the med-dark shade is definitely a wearable and versatile shade (imho)! 🙂

    I tried this product and was very disappointed. The tube seems like a tester tube, it’s very very tiny. After about a week the product started to clump up in the tube. If you don’t get the product on lightly you end up with big clumps that are hard to smooth out. I complained to Benefit, they didn’t care.

    I have fairly thick brows and I use this as a definer to tame my brows. I like everything about it except the scent (too strongly perfume-y).

  • Liz

    I bought this the last time I got my brows done and love it! My brows are thick enough, but they are too light and rather unruly, so all I really need is some coor and control. This stuff fills the bill perfectly. The small tapered spoolie makes it easy to apply and the lighter color is a good match for what I want my brows to be. Most lighter shades are way too warm, but this one is more cool toned. Benefit is hitting it out of the park lately with good basic products like this.

      thanks Liz! I didn’t try it because I have way too much brow going on ;-D so all these comments saying how it works really helps readers wanting to purchase ;-D

  • Laura

    Ooh, I’ll have to check these out in store! I have dark but sparse brows, and I love MUFE’s Aqua Brow, but it creates a very defined look that can be a bit much for more natural looks. I love that the Medium/Deep shade is fairly neutral too. A lot of darker colored brow products are way too warm for me, so this is nice.

    I LOVE this product. Got the med/dark. I have ok brows the just don’t have the look I want. I love the eyebrows of Spanish Soap Opera actresses & mine just aren’t that dense. This helped a lot. Gives just enough color without me looking like a Pinterest fail! Also, I’ve tried brow pencils, but I usually end up with one brow darker than the other or they are uneven lengths.
