Mini Review: My Favourite Brow Products (Benefit Cosmetics)

Most mornings, I need to have my makeup on within 10-15 minutes. Getting my eyebrows together can be quite the task especially when they're not freshly threaded. However, Benefit Cosmetics makes filling in my brows less cumbersome and easy to do even when I'm on the train. I was using MAC's Brow Pencil in Spiked and their brow gel before switching to Benefit's Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil and Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel (available at Benefit Cosmetics).

Both surpass the MAC products. Precisely, My Brow has a fine tip and comes with a spoolie on the end so I can blend the product and remove any harsh lines without having to tote around extra brushes. Gimme Brow has a very small brush so it's easy to apply the gel without getting it on my lids or forehead. I'd actually say this one gives true volume to the brows compared to other gels I've tried.

I swatched these in store and was intrigued by the oil content, assuming it was going to be nourishing for my lips, especially after liquid lipsticks when my lips can be quite dry. After a few days of continued use, I'm comfortable enough saying this was a disappointing purchase. The applicator is a sensation to get used…
