I hope you are all well and have had a great start to the New Year! A few weeks ago I very kindly received some of Benefit’s brow products for Christmas which I have already briefly mentioned on my blog a few days ago! When I mentioned them in my previous post some people said that they would like to see a full review of the products that I have from the range so of course I thought I would do this post and share with you my thoughts on the products, how I think they perform and how I have switched up my brow game using these products! I hope you enjoy my lovelies…
To start off the products that I am going to be reviewing are the Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel which is retailed at £18.50 and the Benefit BROWVO! Conditioning Eyebrow Primer which is priced at £21.50. As you can tell by the price these products don’t come cheap which is why I had been putting off trying them for quite some time! As soon as Benefit released their new brow range I instantly fell in love with it especially the packaging of the products and the updated versions of some of their older products, one of them being Gimmie Brow. They also added completely new products to the range like the eyebrow primer which was very exciting, especially being a beauty lover myself! I was undecided which product would be best for me from brow kits to eyebrow gels and pencils as there are quite a few to choose from! In the end after going on the Benefit website and taking their ‘brow survey’ (which you can find HERE if you scroll down and click on your brow type) it reckoned that the best product for me was Gimmie Brow and the Browvo Primer! Obviously if you prefer brow pencils you may prefer the pencils that they do but here is what I think on the products that I have…
Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel
I have mine in the shade ‘03 – medium‘ which is the middle shade if your hair colour is ‘golden blonde to medium brown’ which mine is. If you hair is light blonde you will want the shade ‘01-light‘ and if you hair is dark brown to black you will want the darkest shade ‘05-deep.‘
Moving onto the actual product, I have always used brow palettes and even thought they are great and they did the job for me I’ve always wanted to try a product that was a bit different from a brow powder. Since Benefit launched their brow range, they are now known for their brows! As they are on the more expensive side, I didn’t want to spend money on the wrong product but I had heard lots of good things about this product and I loved the concept! Now having tried it, it has transformed my brow game and it is definitely worth the hype and the splurge!! This product has made doing my brows so much easier, quicker and overall looking a whole lot better! Although the brow powder was fine for a while, this products makes it more precise and much easier to create the shape that you want!
Benefit BROWVO! Conditioning Eyebrow Primer
At first I wasn’t really sure about this product and if it was going to really make a difference to my brows but I couldn’t have been more wrong!! The primer helps the eyebrow gel or whatever eyebrow product you are using on top to stick to your brows better and last longer while also conditioning your brows at the same time! Who would have thought!? I have also noticed that this product makes my brows look fuller due to the conditioning formula containing keratin & soy proteins which is a bonus if you are sparse in some areas!
I also love the design of this product as you only have to twist the bottom of the product one click per brow which means you have just the right amount of product for each brow! The only thing I would say is, when you are using it for the first time, don’t be confused if none of the product comes out as I had to twist mine a few times to prep it until the product started to come out.
Also can I just say I’m sorry that I don’t have the best brows in the world to set as an example but I thought I would throw in a photo of my brows so you could see what they looked like after using these products!
That brings me to the end of this weeks post! Thank you so much for reading as always and I hope you enjoyed this post and may have found it in some way helpful if you were thinking about trying any of Benefit’s brow products! Let me know if you have tried any of their brow products and which one is your favourite as I’d love to know your thoughts also!? See you in my next post and enjoy the rest of your Sunday,
Much Love, Amelia xx
