This week I am going to talk about brows. We all know that having full, well groomed brows are all the trend and a lot of high end and drugstore brands are coming out with so many brow products. There are so many brow gels, pencils, gels and shadows to choose from and sometimes it can become overwhelming when you are trying to choose. In this particular blog I am going to be talking about brow gels! Two brow gels specifically!
I have been a huge fan of the Gimme Brow by Benefit and I have been using this for at least a year now. I absolutely love this product and I have recommended this to so many of my family and friends. There are just so many good things about the Gimme Brow Product. It is a fantastic eyebrow gel - my brows stay in place all day when I use this right until I take off my make up at night. It even survives my epic sweat at the gym! The Gimme Brow also has a tint to it as well coming in 2 colours - light/medium or medium/deep and it also gives you fuller looking brows. Gimme Brow has little fibers which brush onto your brows to make your brows appear fuller. If you have sparse eyebrows then this is a great product for your brows and you can use it over the top of any pencils, shadows or gels.
Recently I purchased the Maybelline Brow Drama to give it a go as I have heard really good things about this one. The Maybelline Brow Drama does everything it says it does. It sculpts and holds your brows in place and they really don't budge all day. It also comes in clear and three different shades - blonde, soft brown and dark brown which does give your lighter hairs a bit of colour. I also did find this product a lot easier to apply that the gimme brow which can take a little time to get the hang off. On the other hand this one doesn't give as full a look as the Gimme Brow.
Benefit Gimme Brow retails for around $24 and you can pick it up at Myer Benefit Cosmetic Counter on online at www.benefitcosmetics.com and the Maybelline Brown Drama retails for around $12.95 and you can pick it up at your nearest Priceline.
So all in all I really do like both of these products but the Benefit Gimme Brow remains to be my favourite eyebrow gel. You just cant get past the long lasting hold with this products along with the fibers giving you fuller brows. For a daily look I can get away with just using the Gimme Brow and skipping a pencil fill in which is a great time saver in the morning. I would still suggest if you are new to brow gels to start with the Maybelline Brow Drama and move up from there. If brow gels work well for you I would then look at picking up the Benefit Gimme Brow as it really doesn't get any better than that.
