I was very excited to try this, as someone who's plucked, pulled, waxed and threaded to the point of almost no return. And I was pleasantly surprised by how easy and quick this product worked. But, Oh. My. God. the SMELL! It smells like something I can't quite put my finger on but it's definitely not good. Even my husband noticed the smell right. Will return ASAP. The search continues I guess. ::sigh::

This is a product that could be so great, but just falls a bit short of the mark. First of all, I love the teeny tiny brush! It is the perfect size and allows you to deposit the colored gel on just your brows, instead of on your brows and the skin all around them. It does seem to fill in a couple sparse spots I have but I still need to use a pencil on my really thin brow tails. I do love the natural look Gimme Brow provides. And the fibers in it are so small, you can't see them in your brows. On to the downsides..... Color selection is poor, only 2 shades. I use the dark shade on my dark brown brows but I feel that several more shades are needed. The wiper on the tube doesn't wipe enough product off the brush, which leads to product waste. And because the tube is so small any amount of waste is unacceptable. I also feel that the price is very high for such a tiny amount of product. I also wish it provided a bit more hold, as I notice my brows don't stay quite as shaped through the day as I would like. I have not noticed a strong chemical scent like some other reviewers have mentioned, the tube I have doesn't really smell like much of anything. I do like Gimme Brow but I don't think it's perfect. I'll probably continue to use it until I find something that works better.

A couple of months ago, I had to bleach my eyebrows for a play. I ended up accidentally leaving the solution on my brows for waaaay too long, and they became a LOT lighter than I had intended. Figuring they would grow eventually grow back in their normal, dark shade, I spent the rest of my time covering them up with my bangs. Fast forward to the present day, and my brows have barely reached a sort of reddish blonde color (compared to my near black hair). Powders only sat on my skin and looked strange with the blonde hairs on top of it, and most gels made my brows totally dry and crusty. On a whim, I picked this up at Ulta. And what can I say? For once, I'm thankful for my impulse-purchasing tendencies. This product coats and thickens the brows, which means no more blonde hairs peaking through. It's a liquidy consistency when it first comes out, but it does dry pretty quickly. What's great is that it holds my brows perfectly in place and looks completely natural. Say goodbye to awkwardly penciled in brows! The wand is a great size and allows full control over how much product you want to put on. Pretty average packaging overall. My one complaint is the price-- I'm not against paying $20 for a good product, but this is such a small amount that you'll probably be rebuying it every two months if you're using it everyday like I am. But, as long as my brows stay this pathetic bleached color, I know I'll continue to.

This product is a RIP OFF in my opinion. I ordered it a while back from Sephora and was very disappointed when it came - mainly because of the size. It's the size of a sample tube of mascara, like what you would get in a free gift. For what it costs I think there should be more product. As for the actual product, I don't think it's any better than any other brow gels I have tried, so I will purchase a less expensive one going forward.

First off I love this product! I just hate the pricing and the packaging could be way freaking bigger! I fill in my brows with an angled brush and powder but that makes them look a bit fake. This is the cherry on top of my brow routine! It blends everything perfectly so it looks so natural! I'm a red head so it is really hard to find the right color of brow powder! The best one I have found so far is just a tad too reddish but when I layer on my gimme brow in ash It looks amazing!!! The price really does suck for how much you get. If this product were any less amazing I would never pay that much. Looking for a new brow gel filler at a more reasonable price but this will do for now! But seriously benefit, keep the adorable tiny brush just add like 3 inches to the cylinder and not a damn dime to the price tag!

I have sparse, light colored brows. I'm a brunette but somehow I have nearly blond brows and lashes. (Wish my leg hair was the same, but I digress.) I tried this for the first time this weekend and am hooked! I used it with an eyebrow pencil and it made a huge difference. My only complaint is that it can clump pretty easy if you use a little too much. I wouldn't use this alone, but that's because my brows are so sparse, they still need a little bit of shape to them.

Fantastic product. I overplucked my eyebrows as a teenager and they have never grown back. I have tried the products to "grow" eye brow hair and I did get some colourless hair grow but have always had to use a pencil to fill in and give definition. I have tried various pencils, paint on creams and had even contemplated tattoos. When I saw an advertisement in benefits shop window I went in to try, it is amazing, I have eyebrows again, I love it, and it's so easy and quick to use. I find applying from above works best so some wrist dexterity is needed. The reviews I read said they doubted it would work with little hair, but it does, it really does. I use the light/med and I also bought the med/dark for my daughter, who does have brows and it keeps her brows nice and tidy and dark. I can highly recommend gimme brows for older women with very thin eyebrows.

This is the first eyebrow product I've used, but based on how much I like it, I don't think I'd ever even try something else. Easy to apply, lasts all day, looks gorgeous and NATURAL. I have full, dark brows that are starting to gray...this doesn't completely cover the gray, which I think is a good thing - it fills them in, frames my face, and enhances my brows - doesn't look pencilled or powdered in.

I like to use this product in conjunction with Tarte's brow mousse. It does a good job of depositing a light brown color on the brows and keeping them from becoming too wayward. I was expecting it to feel like mascara, but actually it is much lighter and less clumpy. I do not like to use this alone as it is a bit dark for my eyebrows (I am light-haired) so using it with the brow mousse seems to be the right combination. Price-wise, this is expensive considering how much product you get, but this is definitely one of the better products out there.

I love this product! I have been filling in my brows for 10+ years now, and I've used everything from pencil, to powder, to gel. I like a somewhat defined brow, as I think it really polishes any make up look. However, with too much product, I think brows can end up looking "over-done". Prior to purchasing Gimme Brow, I was using Anastasia brow powder on top of a wax pencil then finished with a clear brow gel. This routine was working, but was quite a bit more time consuming than I would have liked. Also, the look this three step routine created was not a super natural look, which was what I really wanted to find: a natural, yet clean & defined brow. So I was immediately drawn to Gimme Brow when I saw it in Ulta. I don't have sparse brows, but they aren't full either. Gimme Brow really does create a natural yet defined look. It is super quick & easy to use as well. I use 2 coats, starting at the inner edge of my brow and working my way out. The brush makes it really easy to pin point any specific areas that might need filling in, as it is super small and tapered for maximum control. Another thing I really love is the staying power of the formula; even in the heat and humidity, Gimme Brow lasts all day, until I wash it off. Additionally, the formula doesn't get hard and crusty like some brow gels. My brows stayed soft to the touch, without product transfer on to my finger when I touch them. All in all, I am thrilled with Gimme Brow and finally feel like I have found my HG brow product. I do wish the tube was a little bigger, as I fill my brows daily, but so far it seems that a little bit does go a long way. I will FOR SURE repurchase! I'm not a huge Benefit fan, but they certainly stepped their game up with Gimme Brow.
