Benefit Gimme Brow

Hello everyone! I've been using this product for a loong time (a few months, I mean) and I still have not reviewed it! What? Bad blogger alert. Oh well, here it is now!

What makes this different from other brow gels is that the formula has fibers in it to make your brows look thicker as well as fill them in and give them color.

The brush is really small so you can have more control. On the front part of my brows, I like to hold it horizontally so I don't use too much product. For the tail, I use the tip of the brush vertically to make it darker.

The Gimme Brow does a really good job of giving my brows volume and color, but I need more to get them to look the way I like. Usually I use a lighter brow pencil to get the shape that I like, and then go in with the Gimme Brow to give more demention and make them bolder and darker. If you have darker brows, then this is probably all you need. But since I am building from basically nothing, I need a little more work.

The color I got was light/medium, and I think it can work for a lot of hair colors because it is a very nuetral taupe color. Some people say that it's too dark for me, but I don't really care because I like the look of darker brows.

What I suggest is to use a concealer around the edges of your brows to clean them up a bit because it can look a bit messy at times.

Overall: I really like this, but I'm still looking for my perfect brow routine. If you guys have any suggestions, let me know. See you next time! 


  1. Wow! It makes such a difference! It looks amazing on you! TBH, I don't think it looks too dark on you anyway!


  2. I have been debating on whether or not to get this because my brows don't really show up in pictures, but you can clearly see them in person. Sigh, my brows are just bipolar. XD Thank you SO MUCH for this review! I was always wondering what color to get since I have black hair. I guess a dark brown would work? :o Thanks again Sonya! ^^

    1. I have that same problem! It looks like I have no brows in pictures. And a brown would work perfectly with black hair. And I'm glad it was helpful! XD

  3. I really like the look the gimme brow gives you! I'm totally with you on darker brows. It gives more deffinition to the face if the shade is 2-3 shades darker than your hair. Ofc too dark can make you look odd. Really greav review, I deffo consider picking this up now x)

    1. Exactly! The stuggles of finding the right brow shade. . . ^_^

  4. I think that product is good on you, it look so natural.
    I think it's a good shade for you as your hair look lighter than your brow.


    1. Thank you! And I agree. Thanks for stopping by! ^_^
