The Benefit Brow Collection


Benefit Brow Collection New Makeup Launch Review Gimme Brow Brow Pencil Setting Gel Guess who’s back… back again! Oh yeah, I am finally back after what turned out to be a two week absence but I’m back to start blogging again with no technical issues *fingers crossed* Anyway I am here to discuss a new beauty launch that I am sure many of you will have seen in the last month or two now from Benefit. Benefit have always been the queen brand for brows and now they have went and topped it all off with a whole new brow collection set with some old favourites and new launches altogether in a new silver futuristic style packaging. Having got a few samples from the collection, I thought I would share my thoughts on some of the products on offer!

I’ve always loved a simple wind-up brow pencil as they are super easy so I was excited to see the new Goof Proof Brow Pencil. If you are familiar with the likes of the Soap and Glory Archery and the Anastasia Brow Wiz then this is basically a very similar idea. The great thing about this pencil is that it is slanted so is a perfect and convenient shape to work through brows. It really is fool proof, or should I say goof proof… It comes in 6 shades which is pretty decent and a lot better than the selection Benefit used to have.

Having spent ages doing your brows, the last thing you want is them to fly out of place. A clear brow gel works well to set brows in place and Benefit have released their own entitled Ready, Set, Brow! I’ve never used a clear setting gel before so I can’t really compare it to anything else. It is nice enough however I haven’t really experienced the need to have my brows being set as the products I use are always long-wearing. The gel doesn’t feel uncomfortable or sticky which is good although all I would say is that I do feel like the applicator would be better like a round spoolie rather than being flat.

To finish on a high, Benefit have also included one of my favourites, Gimme Brow. If you have been reading this blog for a while you may be familiar with my feelings on this one. It is basically a tinted eyebrow gel with micro fibres which work to help thicken your brows and make them appear fuller. It really is a great and super easy product and definitely worth the money as it lasts so long. The addition of extra shades is also very welcomed considering there only was two! Definitely one I recommend!

What do you think of this new collection?

Benefit Gimme Brow Review


Benefit Gimme Brow Medium

 

Benefit Gimme BrowIf there was one thing I always skipped when it came to makeup without a doubt it would be the brows! While everyone else adopted the sculpted fuller brow look I always went au-natural showing off my not so impressive thick untamed brows. However time has moved on and I’m now glad to say I do tend to give my brows some consideration in my makeup routine. I wasn’t just the fear of overdrawn ‘scouse brows’ that put me off even touching my brows but the fact that did I really have the extra time in the morning to fit in some brow taming? Well when the Benefit Gimme Brow came around yes I did!

Whilst I do love my Soap and Glory Archery pencil, there is nothing better than a quick swipe to reveal fuller brows. That is were the Benefit Gimme Brow comes in. I had heard so many good things about this little gem but I hadn’t quite got round to picking it up but I finally did it and I’m glad I did. I got the darker shade of the two available; Medium/Dee which is the perfect colour match for me. It is build able so if you are looking for natural looking brows or much fuller brows this little wand does it all.

One thing that did put me off this was the price. It is quite pricey at £17.50 for a tiny 3g tube but whether its worth that or not, I will need to see how long this one lasts. Brow-wise by adding a little swipe of this over my brows it helps fill in the sparse sections and also lasts all day without any awkward half eyebrow missing. Another gem from Benefit!

Also, I was thinking about taking a trip to the Benefit brow bar to get my brows shaped, I would love to hear if anyone has experienced them before?

Have you tried Benefit Gimme Brow?
