This week I’m going to be trialling every new brow product Benefit has to offer (that’s A LOT of brows!) and I’m kicking off with an already firm favourite. Gimme Brow is a tinted brow gel with tiny fibres that give a fuller looking, more defined brow. Since I had mine tinted and waxed (also at Benefit, would highly recommend the service) I’ve been using Gimme Brow exclusively to add colour and definition so I was interested to see whether the new packaging = new formula.. I’m happy to confirm it does NOT. Inside this fancier, space-age tube is the exact same brush too.
I first brushed through Gimme Brow (shade 2) to tint and volumise (top picture) which I knew I’d like because as previously mentioned.. identical product. The new and exciting step was the 3D Browtones. ‘Subtle Brow Enhancing Highlights’ – not sure about this one. I think you can see the second picture is slightly lighter and perhaps there’s more dimension but I wouldn’t run out and pick this up if your brows are already sparse and a bit ‘meh’ in colour like mine. If you have thick, dark brows it might be nice but for me.. not so much.
Here are the brushes compared.. I can’t quite work out what the spiky end of the Browtones is useful for, the packaging calls it a ‘comb tip’ but.. why? Also, it’s metallic! Again it’s not for me but might be for you and I’d love to hear about it if it is!
So I started with the brush on products but there’s lots more to come this week, from powders to creams to pencils. I won’t be trialling their longevity because that’s not an issue I have with any brow product so I think that would be a big redundant from me but I do plan to show them all in action on YouTube very soon so keep your eyes peeled if you’re in to that kind of thing!
