Gimme Brow : First Impressions #youtubefavoritestruth

IMG_3689.JPG

I usually use NyX pencil in dark brown or Body Shop eye brow powder in the darkest duo. I have very sparse brows and very dark hair. Gimme brow has been reviewed as volumizing, darkening, and brow thickening.

Store: Sephora
Brand: Benefit
Product: Gimme Brow in medium dark
Hope: to fill In my sparse but dark brows

First impressions: “wow this is a tiny bottle for $22!” (I actually thought maybe it was a sample).

“Oh what a little wand, make up for gnomes! Maybe the product will go far…”

First impressions: I really hate the smell and how my eyebrow feels glued on. I did one brow in Gimme Brow gel and the other in my usual powder and I still prefer powder. If I had lighter hair perhaps this product would be better but if you’re looking to fill in sparse spots this may not be the best.

Second impression: the glued on feeling fades but I didn’t notice a difference but when I went to dinner and asked which brow was better everyone picked the pencil + Gimme Brow over the pencil + powder! The Gimme Brow brow has a natural 3-D effect.

Final verdict: Bouncing in and out of the return pile… Ultimately this will come down to price. I would still need my pencil and powder along with this and while my brows are a bit nicer with the gel, it’s not enough to justify $22.

Did it work: yes. It made my brow hairs have more volume but it didn’t fill them in.

As for the brand… I still love Benefit if for nothing else besides They’re Real Mascara. They’re items tend more towards quality so I’m sure I’ll be reviewing more of their items soon!

    Thank you so much for this review. I have been considering Gimme Brow for a couple of months now, and this might have just swayed me in the opposite direction!
