In Store Test: Benefit Gimme Brow

You know I've been keeping up with my blog reading and YouTube watching like a madwoman, and one of the products I keep seeing over and over is Benefit's "brow-volumizing fiber gel," Gimme Brow.  So many before and after pictures, people.  It really seemed like an interesting prospect, and with some odd patchiness in my brows that I noticed recently, I'll admit that I was intrigued.  I managed to control my impulse to just dive in and spend, spend, spend, and had the nice lady (with very soft hands) at Ulta try it on me.

I regret to inform you that, while it certainly wasn't a disaster or anything, it did not quite live up to the hype for me.  She put it on and it just didn't do anything, except make my brows maybe a little less unruly.  Now, I'm not saying that this product has been lied about by the many, many people who tried it, just that I think I fall outside the profile of people to whom this product is exceptionally useful. I have very dark brows that, while they do have some weird gaps from high school era overplucking, are very full (read: hairy).  Ultimately, I think a powder to fill in those suckers suits me better.

While I am disappointed that this didn't turn out to be a win for me, a $22 for a verrrrrrry tiny little tube, I can't say it's ruining my life.
