My Thoughts on Benefit's Gimme Brow

I bought Benefit's Gimme Brow for the first time a few months ago, I've mentioned it a lot and get a lot of questions about it. So I thought I'd share my thoughts with you. 

I bought the shade medium/deep, there are only 2 shades. I think this product is absolutely wonderful for giving you a little bit darker and fuller brows, quick. It's not dramatic, just enough to tame, darken and set. I use this product everyday during the week as I'm getting ready for work. 

When I have extra time or want a more dramatic brow, I use my Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil and Anastasia clear Brow Gel.

I swatched it on my hand below to show that it's not too dark and it's a thin application, not thick or cakey. 


Below are 3 pictures; before application, after doing 1 brow and after both brows are done. You can see it's not dramatic, but definitely makes a difference. If you follow my Instagram, this is the purpose of that selfie I posted Saturday ;) Not the mascara. But really, Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is where it's at! 


I've found no cons to this product. I mean, it'd be nice if it was a little cheaper, but high end stuff usually isn't right? I did see that Sonia Kashuk makes a tinted brow gel, I'm going to try that one out next to see if they compare!

Do you own this, what are your thoughts?

Love Always Nancy J

  1. I actually just read an article, something about the things you should pay attention to in your late 20s -- one of those EliteDaily articles or something -- and it mentioned how well groomed brows are a must! Brows are totally an area I neglect. I need to look into this stuff!

  5. I've never tried anything on my brows before, which I probably should since they are on the lighter side. I love that this still looks super natural! Might need to give it a try! Btw you look flawless in these pictures!!

  6. You look gorgeous! I'm still sooo on the fence about this-- I think I'll try the SK one first if I can find it because I usually have good luck with her products.

  7. Love your review - and you can totally see the difference in the photos! My brows are pretty dark as is - so when they used it after a brow wax I didn't really see the need for it...but it does give more coverage!

  10. Girl, you already know how I feel about my Gimme Brow! I absolutely love it, it was a game-changer in my daily makeup routine. I had no idea Sonia Kashuk had a tinted brow gel, either - we both will have to give that a try!

  11. Great post! I need to start using that stuff. My eye brows are SO thin (I just don't have a lot of hair there) so I definitely need to give this a try!

  12. Holy Crap - that looks amazing! I didn't realize the difference it would make! I have thick brows & never thought I needed it, but it fills in the gaps, doesn't it? I've gotta find this stuff!

  13. I never did anything with my brows until I was given a brow sample kit now I'm obsessed! Totally makes such a difference with framing the eyes!

  14. it's pretty amazing what brow products can do. i just use a simple pencil for blonde eyebrows and it really transforms my eye area!

  17. wow your brows look amazing. I am for sure going to try this product!

  18. I love this, too! I have a MAC brow pencil I love so much, but Gimme Brow actually keeps my brows in place, which is awesome. I'm really interested in that Sonia Kashuk gel, too- her products have been consistently great (at least the ones I've tried!).

  19. Ooh what a subtle - but better - difference the brow pencil makes. I think my brows are perhaps a tad over-plucked these days, but if I can stand to let them fill in more a brow pencil could totally be an option. Great product!

  20. I absolutely love this product! I'm red haired & fair complected, so my brows are blonde and pretty much invisible. This is the first brow product I've used that doesn't make my brows look fake. The lighter version makes my brows look so natural and full! Would totally recommend this stuff!

  21. You have gorgeous brows to begin with - I definitely need to try this since I have dark brows (which makes no sense because I'm a natural blonde), that were overplucked when I was younger, so I fill them in every day. I love Benefit, and despite the cost, it definitely seems more worthwhile to buy great makeup!

  22. You don't even know how much I need that!
    going out to buy now...i love it!

  29. That looks pretty awesome. I've been experimenting on NYX brow pencil and I love it so far. I've been looking at this forever. I may give it a try now.

  30. i own it but swear it's too dark for me. i think it's because my brows are full and black. i look a little witchy when i fill them in lol.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've been thinking about buying this...but it's kind of pricey...I wouldn't mind the price if we got more product, but the tube is so itty bitty!
    Your brows looks great! I may have to give this a shot!
