Are you a brow person? Have you ever encountered a situation that you are in rush but your brows are not being cooperative? Well, my brows usually become my worst enemy when I’m in a rush. They will not turn out nicely, and sometimes uneven. The worst scenario, MY BROW PENCIL IS NOT IN MY BAG! Of course, my brows will look so plain and ruin my day.
I was introduced to a brand known for their BROW PRODUCTS and majority would say they are one of the best in brow products. Benefit Cosmetics is a brand that carries different range of makeup but focuses on brow products. They have different types of brow products that will match your preferences; YOU NAME IT! But I am gonna review the product I have been using for a month, Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel.
There are three shades to choose; #1 Light, #3 Medium, #5 Deep. But as for my fair skin tone with thick eyebrows, I chose #3 Medium to match my eyebrows. It is an eyebrow gel with tiny microfibers in the formulation. The tiny microfibers included is because to help fill in the brows to make it look thicker.
It volumizes my brows and make my brow stay still through out the day. Did I mentioned that it is waterproof and long wearing? If you easily sweat, this would be probably the best brow product from their range for you to try. Unlike pencil brows, the gel will tame your bushy and messy brows.
I can say this would be the size of their mini products range. It is tiny with only 3g per product. However, their price might not be able to be an attraction. For a small size with that price, it might not making any sense. Plus, their full size brow pencils are almost the same price but compared to the size, this product will run out faster than others.
Since it is a small size, the spoolie of the brow wand also smaller than normal eyebrow wand. But I do like it because it has tiny spoolie that helps me shape my eyebrow. Unlike other brow gel, their spoolie would be huge that cause me to hardly shape my brows especially at the end of my brows. I love sharp and clean brows, but also I couldn’t spend much time to do my brows. Hence, this Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel is easy to bring anywhere and their amazingly spoolie really helps me.
You can see the difference between before and after. My brows is more neat and longer as I only shape it with Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel. It is easy to handle and make it fuller especially when you are in rush.

I would rate this 7/10. What I like about this product is their spoolie that really helps when I’m in rush. I don’t need to put much effort in shaping my brows only using a gel brow product. I would have a hard time when the spoolie is huge which always led me to messy brows. But their spoolie is tiny and pointy which makes me easy to get sharp and clean brows even I am in rush.
However, their price is not really favorable to me. It is quite expensive for a small product when you can actually get a bigger size with that price. If you are asking me whether I am going to repurchase once I finished this bottle? My answer would be a no. I probably find another alternative with lower prices. But it depends on other preferences. If you find that Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel is an amazing product, then you should continue it! Because for me, the formulation is great.
