In the past few months, I have been a little obsessed with my eyebrows. When @hairbyliaa suggested that I try growing my bangs out, I gasped in horror! That means I will have to make sure BOTH my eyebrows are filled in and even. ha! I used to just make sure that my right eyebrow was on fleek and did a half a** job on my left one. Well, NOT ANYMORE. So you can imagine my excitement when I found out I was going to bett receiving a sample of the Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel $24 in my June Birchbox.
What it is: Benefit recently came out with a whole line of eyebrow products. I used to actually get my eyebrows waxed at the Benefit Brow Bar inside Macy’s, so I get why Benefit is expanding their brow line. The Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel is supposed to make your eyebrows look full and defined. With volumizing microfibers and a water resistant gel, this product should give you bold, beautiful brows. It is suggested that you “back brush” against the eyebrow hairs when putting this on to add volume.
My thoughts: I have used this a few times with and without other eyebrow products. For me, it is just okay. It’s great if your brows are NOT sparse and all you need is a “tint’ to help fill them in. However, if you are like me and have sparse eyebrow hair, then this is not for you. BUT – if you are planning on filling in your brows with another product and then using this on top – then YES. I did try to “back brushing” that was suggested. What happened was that I ended up with a ton of product on my patchy eyebrows. Not a good look.
I like how the brush is small so it’s easy to control. I got the medium shade which matches perfectly with the other eyebrow products that I use. My final thoughts are that I’ll be sticking with the Cle de Peau and Anastasia eyebrow products that I have been using for now….

Has anyone else tried Benefit’s line of brow products? I would love to know your thoughts and if there are any other products I should try!
