Benefit Gimme Brow.

For a while now I have been getting increasingly dissatisfied with using powder on my brows as although it gives an amazing natural finish I find it far too time consuming on the days I'm rushing out the door at 8am. I'm also rather doubtful about the longevity of such powders as I tend to get slightly oily brows. I have a number of eyebrow kits as well as angled brushes and matte brown eye shadows, but bring an early rise into the equation and I'll always choose an extra 5 minutes in bed no matter what cardinal beauty sin I need to commit.

Benefit's Gimme Brow aims to eliminate that problem as it is ridiculously easy and quick to apply. I bought mine from the counter in Boots where the girl was raving about it as soon as I picked it up; don't even get me started on what I think of Benefits sales tactics. To be honest I 'd already researched the product on other blogs so it was just a matter of purchasing, and so I allowed the consultant to think she'd been the one to persuade me to part with my hard earned cash.

I bought this in the colour medium/dark and its definitely the colour for me as you can apply as much or as little as you wish since the brush is super tiny! Even a tiny amount of this immediately clings to each individual hair on my brows and not only fills them in but holds them in place all day. I commute to university three days a week and have even been applying this on the train its that easy!

The only thing I would say is that for £17.50 there is really only a teeny tiny amount of product (3g), and due to the mascara like consistency of it I don't really believe the shelf life is going to be much more than a few months either. It really is a great quality product so if you are big on brows I'd definitely recommend you at least try it!

I will most likely purchase this again despite the hefty price tag since I genuinely do love the product!
