As a long-time Benefit lover, every new launch grabs my attention, but I will admit that I have high-standards as someone looking for a quick fool-proof brow product. But thankfully, the new-for-2022 Gimme Brow Pencil has exceeded my expectations – it fills in my fine brows in no time!
For 2022, the volumising technology of the beloved Gimme Brow Gel has been added to the revolutionary Benefit Gimme Brow + Volumising Pencil, so it now adds tiny fibres as well as colour to your brow look. Intrigued? Read on to find out more…
Why The Team Wanted To Try It
The Most Important Thing About The Benefit Gimme Brow Pencil Is…
Deemed the first brow pencil to contain fibres *and* powder, the Gimme Brow Pencil fills in sparse spots using pigment and tiny hair-like fibres to help fill out, shape and define your brows. By leaving fibres as well as colour, your brows are full of texture that looks natural and full. The formula is transfer-proof and waterproof for up to 12 hours of wear with no smudging.
What Does It Look Like On?
Gimme Brow Volumising Pencil is available in the typical Benefit 12 shades range, matching any natural undertone or allowing you to change the colour of your brows to suit your preference. The pencil is extremely buildable for bold or natural brows, creating a thick and fluffy finish with matte colour.
What Brow Type Is It For?
Anyone looking for volume and natural, hair-like brows will love the Gimme Brow Pencil. Thick brows can be tamed and shaped with the attached spoolie, while sparse patches can be filled in without looking cakey or like a block-brow.
What The Team Thought After 30 Days Of Using It
You Will Love This If…
If you love the fullness that the Gimme Brow Gel gives you, you’ll love the additional layer of fibres Gimme Brow Pencil gives for the ultimate voluminous brow look.
The pencil is also beginner-friendly – the pencil does the hard work for you, leaving the fibres in exactly the right spots next to your natural brow hairs.
Benefit’s silk cotton tree fibres are almost undetectable when applied to the skin as a swatch, but they are designed to adhere to existing brow hairs and fill out the space between. This means the fibres are applied evenly throughout the pigment of the pencil.
What Does It Feel Like?
The pencil is not waxy or creamy, instead having a traditional dry powder pencil-feel that is so lightweight.
What’s Special About The Design?
The Gimme Brow Pencil has a tip that is thicker than the Precisely, My Brow Pencil, so it’s quick and easy to apply. The spoolie on the end of Gimme Brow perfectly blends away any mistakes and can be used to style your brows and blend out the finish.
How Do You Use It?
Use Gimme Brow Pencil to fill in any patches of your brows that lack fullness and hair. If you struggle with unruly brows or want the laminated look, use a brow gel to set your newly defined brows in place – the Benefit Gimme Brow Gel can be used for an additional layer of fibres for a seriously textured finish. Gimme Brow Pencil can also be used to change the shape of your brow.
