The star of the show!

Do you have sparse brows?  Do you want a more natural full brows?

Have you tried gimme brow?  Well you should!

I present to you one of my holy grail items! My benefit gimme brow 

What it is:
Brow-volumizing fiber gel that mimics the look of real hair for fuller-looking brows“. –Agree 

What it does: (Described by Sephora as)
Brush-on gel has tiny micro fibers that adhere to skin and hair, creating lush-looking eyebrows where before there were none”.  –Agree

Benefit’s claims on this produts:  Water resistant, long-lasting, buildable formula locks brow hairs in place while conditioning with vitamin B5 and marshmallow extract. It builds easily for thick, full arches, thanks to a tapered brush for blending and a precision tip for shaping perfect brows. I don’t believe it’s water resistant, but it is long lasting, buildable and easily builds to a beautiful thick looking brow!

Research results:
In a consumer panel survey of 66 women after 1 week:
– 94% said brows looked visibly thicker  – Ummm not so much, I’ve used this product for years and I have no thicker brows than what I did before. 

Price: $28.00 for 0.01 oz (Crazy huh)

Suggested Usage:
-Using short pressing motions, stroke the precision tip along the brow to define and shape.
-Brush through with the custom tiny tapered brush to blend and build.
-Stroke on more to build thicker-looking brows. To get the most natural look, start at the inner edge of your brow and move outward.
-For the fullest, thickest-looking results, gently glide the brush against the direction of your hair growth starting at the tail, and allow the color to settle. Then brush hairs back int

Pro tip (from me): With the brush ,brush your brows on the opposite direction of the hair growth. Then brush them back into place it fill it more gaps this way, leaving your brows looking thick and beautiful. 
Pro: Fibers, thick looking brows, the consistency is great, no flaking
Cons: PRIZE!!!  So little product
Overall thoughts:  Guys I’ve been using this product for years, it’s not a hair growing gel. But it does make your brows look thicker and stay in place. It’s not like other gels that gets your brows wet looking. It dries and it doesn’t leave your brows feeling like you have a bit of hair spray on (but I’m ok with that). 
I have enough brow on my hair to use just this on my every day makeup. But I will say ,I’ve used this product on my extremely sparse brow clients and it’s worked for them by  using my pro tip. It sticks to the bald spaces and fills them and it worked for them. No, I’m not being sponsored. I’ve bought this product with my own money for years now. 
I’ve yet to find an actual dupe for this product but when I do, trust I will let you guys know. 
Would I recommend it?  ABSOLUTELY! yes, I know it’s expensive but I do really do love this product that much. It’s staple in my routine.  Go get yourself one.
