Brow wow? Trying out Benefit's Gimme Brow

Lately I've been filling in my eyebrows with MAC's Mystery and locking them down with Lash Control's Clear Coat Control Mascara and Brow Fix (a heaven sent gem by way of Violet Box). But if I can expedite my morning makeup routine, that means I'll be able to catch a few more precious winks!

If you're not into a multi-step process then your best bet is to go check out Benefit's Gimme Brow.  Gimme Brow is a tinted gel that is applied with a built-in user-friendly miniature spooley brush -- the gel works by both laying colour down beneath your brow hairs and by plumping up the hairs that are there.

Gimme Brow comes in two shades, light/medium (a grey putty) and medium/deep (dark brown). I snapped up the lighter of the two with little hesitation as stocks were dwindling pretty quickly. Looking back, I now see the error of my ways because light/medium is best suited for dark blondes and light haired brunettes. To be honest, it didn't really enhance what I already have, but at least it dried fast and kept my brows in place.

Next time I visit Benefit I'll definitely give medium/deep a spin.

Most of us don't have Lilly Collins calibre eyebrows from years of misguided over-plucking, ahem; I encourage you to reclaim them by filling your brows in one way or another.
