Review : Benefit Gimme Brow Gel

Hello everyone!

Only in the beginning of this year, I've started to do my brows. Usually i just couldn't be bothered since my brows are already thick and quite dark. So i usually just get them threaded and then I'm good to go. But watch all these makeup tutorials in YouTube has just made me so curious about them brows! So i tried to fill in my brows one day and i do like how it looks. So yeah. Now i do my brows whenever I'm doing a full face makeup. So, if you want to check out how i fill in my eyebrows, click here. I've actually just started using another eyebrow pencil. Review on that will be coming up next month. Hopefully. 

So first of all, i used to use the Essence Clear Eyebrow Gel to set my eyebrows. But i do find them a lil too 'wet'. The formula of this brow gel dries kinda slow. And it also kind of wipes of the eyeshadow when i fill in my brows. I don't mind that too much because it does give my eyebrows a more natural finish. BUT, i was already on a hunt for another brow gel. And in Malaysia, we don't have any brow gels from the drugstore. Our makeup selection here sucks time. So what can i do? I walk into Benefit Cosmetics store and bought the Gimme Brow Gel.

The Benefit Gimme Brow Gel is a tinted brow gel. I got it in the shade Medium Deep which is the darkest shade available. I think there are only like 2 colour options here in Malaysia. It's basically a dark brown shade. I would like it if its just a tiny bit more darker. But this will do. It was retailed at RM 85. It's pricey, i know. But i was so desperate for an eyebrow gel. It comes in a cute, small brown packaging. Picture is as above.

The packaging of the Benefit Gimme Brow Gel looks like a tiny mascara. Or a bottom lash mascara. The wand is so tiny. This does makes it easy to comb through your eyebrow hair well. Your eyebrows will be neat and well-kept. It's fool-proof to use it. I think it's also waterproof if I'm not mistaken. Eventhough, obviously I'm not going to use this brow gel when i go to the theme park. You probably shouldn't be wearing that much makeup to a theme park anyways. 

The Benefit Gimme Brow Gel does it's job. But I'm not too impressed with the colour. I feel that my eyebrows look lighter when i use it. And i don't want my eyebrows to look wayyyy lighter than my hair shade. That's just weird. So yeah. Otherwise, this is a good product. If you're looking for a BROWN tinted brow gel, this is definitely meant for you. Anyways, i personally give this product a 8/10 rating.

And that's a wrap. That's all that I've got to rant about the Benefit Gimme Brow gel. On another note, I can't wait to for this weekend. Daddy's birthday celebration at the resort! Woohoo.
