*waves sheepishly* Hello everyone! Hope you're having a good start to your week. It's been a bit quiet over on this little edge of the web, hasn't it? Truth be told, I've been majorly distracted with working (then sleeping) and I've been trying to read more so the computer has been pushed to the side. I'm also getting ready for Blogmas next month so I guess the thought of blogging every day will make up for my lack of posts this month. At least that's how I figure it, haha!
Anyway, today's post is going to be about a new and completely unexpected favorite product of mine: Benefit's gimmeBrow. I'm not one to ever mess with eyebrows by filling and shaping them because sometimes it can look really unnatural if you don't do it right and adding another meticulous step to my makeup routine just wasn't for me. But when I saw this guy at the Benefit + Birchbox event I went to a while back, I figured why not give it a try? (Mostly because I had to buy something anyway and brow products are something that are non-existent in my collection) gimmeBrow is a "brow-volumizing fiber gel" which is meant to stick to hair and skin to quickly and easily create lush brows. The product itself is quite small, almost the size of my middle finger. It comes with an easy to use applicator with a small spooly on the end that holds the fibers and picks up the product. It's a bit off putting to see how small it all is, but you really don't need to use a lot and the small spooly makes it easier to be precise when you're filling in or just giving some shape to your eyebrows. The formula is wet like a brow gel usually is, but it dries within a minute so you have time to play around with everything before it sets. I love the effect it gives because it's the most natural looking eyebrow look I've ever gotten from a brow product. You wouldn't even guess that I did my brows but they look a bit more defined, darker, and definetely shaped. It's def. not a product you'd want to pick up to create BOLD looking brows, but it is great to add a little natural oomph. I find myself reaching for this guy a lot when I go to do my makeup and it takes no time at all. Just a few brushes through my eyebrows and et voila, they're done! It's $22 for the little tube with 0.1 oz of product but I've been using it religiously for a month now and it still seems to be full and the gel hasn't dried out, so that's great! I'm not sure if I'll buy it again when I run out even though I do love it, but we'll have to see! If you can justify the slightly expensive price and want a brow product that's quick, easy, and gets you the natural effect you want, I'd def. give Benefit's gimmeBrow a go!
What are you favorite brow products?
