Am I the only person who seems to fail at filling in brows? I always blame it on the fact I’m blonde, but who am I kidding, I just can’t get to grips with the different products available; I tried brow pencils, too defined, powders just the same. So when I saw that Benefit had released Gimmie Brow, I was intrigued, but I wasn’t going to pay £17.50 for something I wasn’t sure would work for me. So when I saw Maybelline had a version for around £12.50 cheaper, I thought I should try it!
Being a blonde I do find that finding a brow product that matches is not an easy feat. Nearly all the brow pencils are too warm and make my brows look gingery. Also I can never work out whether my brows should be darker or lighter, so any help on that would be much appreciated!
Maybelline Brow Drama, to be perfectly honest the brush is not my cup of tea. It is too big in my opinion, and doesn’t give you enough control over where the product is distributed. This annoyed me a bit because I ended up with product above my eyebrow as well as on my eyebrow. However, it does give my brows a nice amount of definition without making them look unnatural. The texture of the product is unlike a brow mascara as it doesn’t feel heavy on the brow nor does it make your brows feel stiff. I was very surprised with the colour. It matches my brow colour to the tee, and for that reason I am in love with the product.
I am going to continue to use this daily and see how much I like it. I really want to know what methods and products you use, any tutorials you have too would be great. I hoped you liked my first impressions!
