Benefit Brows / Gimme Brow / 3D Browtones


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. IMG_8798

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!

    If you could only pick one to encourage us to buy which one is it. And when you get your brows done do you feel like that’s the best place to go for them?

      That’s tough.. just sitting down to edit the video together where I show them all so I will know after that. The pomade is pretty good but maybe one of the pencils.. the fine one, not the angled one. I’m not sure whether Benefit do the best brow service as it’s the only place I’ve ever been to but I’m going to have them tined again soon so may do a follow up then. Sorry that’s no help AT ALL, haha
