My Current Obsession – Benefit Gimme Brow

Cara Delevigne, I want your brows. Don’t care about the supermodel figure, flawless skin and I-Die-Hair.

Ok.  I lie.

I want your brows more than anything though.

When I lost my eyebrows twice through 2 lots of Chemo Therapy it was almost as heartbreaking as losing my hair. It changes your whole face not having those “arches” there. (read my story HERE)
They never really fully recovered, and I am always on the lookout for the perfect brow product, to basically make them fuller and neater.

I have reviewed a few brow products:
see Ardelle Brow Defining Kit with a tutorial HERE

see Million Dollar Brows as part of my Wantable Box Review HERE

My current obsession is a Benefit product: Gimme Brow volumizing fibre gel. I am a huge fan of Benefit products, some quite handy little kits and LOVE their Porefessional and their High Brow Pencil.

Anywho, back to GIMME BROW.

Here is how it is described on

This Innovative brush-on fibre gel adheres to skin and hair…creating brows where before there were none. It builds easily for thick, lush arches, thanks to a tapered brush for blending & precision tip for shaping. Available in two shades.

Who am I to argue with Allure?

Here is my take on it:

  • Easy applicator
  • Easy to apply
  • Easy to build
  • Water Resistant
  • RRP AUS$32

Available in 2 colours (I argued with the sales lady that I wanted light/medium and she insisted I should get medium/deep. I got my way – do not mess with me lady!)

I LOVE THIS!! It colours, and thickens and hold them in place ALL at the same time. No need for pencil/powder and a gel or a wax to hold it in place, this is a one-stop-shop. If I want a more dramatic look at night, I will still use a pencil/powder in conjunction with this gel, but for day, this is quick and effective.

Here are my pictures, see for yourself!

AARRGHH! It is the woman with no eyebrows!!
A very easy spooly applicator to brush the fibres on the hairs and to neaten them as well

So much better with 2 whole eyebrows, doncha think?

Check out the Benefit website, there are tutorials and reviews for you to have a look at. Don’t just take my word for it. 🙂

Do you have a favourite Brow Product you would like to share?

Until Next time,

  1. This is so impressive to see how this fabulous product has made your brows darker and stronger ! They totally change your expression ! I never use brow product though because, at least until now, my brows (that I’ve never plucked) could say to Cara’s : eat your heart out !!! XO

  2. Hi! I found your blog through the blog hop!
    And let me just say, I am so jealous of your light eyebrows! I would like to dye my hair a lighter shade, but can’t because mine are noticeably dark brown! I really like how the Gimme Brow makes your eyebrows look though! Such a fantastic shape and shade!

  3. My friend got this when we last went to Ulta. I should have gotten one for myself too!

  4. Wow this looks great! Ill have to check it out next time I am at Sephora!! Thanks for the review! xX

    1. Thanks Kristina. I have progressed to the darker one as my hair colour has gone a bit darker with our winter coming up. Totally recommend this product, it has never let me down 🙂

      1. I was wondering about that. I want to try one but I font know if I should get light or dark. My hair is dark but my brows are naturally lighter…

    Having a similar condition, what would you say is your HG eyebrow product? Cheers, lovely.

    1. I have just received an order of Anastasia if Beverley Hills Dip Brow Pomade and it is AMAZING. The only thing that concerns me about this product is that it is not really smudge proof so I use my Benefits Gimme Brow as well. I am concerned that in summer this really wont work on a sweaty oily face. What is your HG? (Do I know you???)
