BROWS | Tinted brow gels & Benefit Gimme Brow

Benefit Cosmetics have launched a few hyped products lately but Gimme Brow is the one that caught my eye the most. As you should know by now I probably care about my brows most out of all the things on my face. Realistically, I didn’t need either of the products pictured as I’m still going strong with my latest of many Anastasia Brow Wiz pencils (although typing that has probably jinxed me and it will run out tomorrow). I couldn’t resist giving them a go, however.

BROWS | Breaking in to my Brow Wiz

Eyebrows are really important for a face. Even on my most minimal of makeup days I must fill in my eyebrows. They are kind of sparse and the hairs grow downwards and there are still patches from when I thought it would be a good idea to use hair removal cream on my eyebrows when I was about 14. Here is a photo of me with one eyebrow done and one not to help illustrate this.

My preferred product to use to fill in my brows is the Anastasia Brow Wiz. I finally upgraded from drugstore eyebrow pencils in May and the difference was huge. I use the Brow Wiz in Medium Ash, and it’s a much cooler toned pencil than I have ever found from cheaper brands (I’m actually using a drugstore pencil in the photo above, it’s from my pre-Brow Wiz days!)

I’d heard that the Brow Wiz doesn’t last all that long, and was crossing my fingers every morning when I twisted it up. One day, the inevitable happened. It was near the end of August, though, so for pretty much daily use it lasted a decent amount of time! I suspected there was still product inside that would get wasted if I threw the whole pencil away. I noticed the spoolie end popped off easily, which gave me an idea.
