I’m eager to tell you the secret to making perfect eyebrows.
So, today I’ll tell you about some thing which is called “Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel” by Benefit.
Let’s find out what fiber actually is and why they use it in cosmetic products.
Fiber or fibre is a natural or synthetic substance that is significantly longer than it is wide. Fiber is usually used in house building to better reinforce the strainer.
In cosmetics they use an absolutely different type of fiber, which helps to better fixate and hold the hairs in a place. (For example, the lengthening fiber infused mascara is a vivid example, as there are micro fibers which stick to your lashes and lengthen them)
In the eyebrows products there aren’t such fibers as in mascara (long and straight), but their texture reminds of the liquid wax, which looks natural once applied and makes each hair look thicker. It also holds the eyebrows in a place! But, let’s speak about it in the right order.
The product is packed in a diamond-shaped box, with the instruction on how to use the product. Honestly, I didn’t need it. But if you’re just a beginner in creating your perfect brows, then, yeah, maybe the instructions will be useful to read.
The tube reminded me of the mini-sized mascara. It’s made with a good quality plastic and the letters on the tube haven't disappeared even after the half a year use.
The brush, it’s so tiny:) And it actually, does its job great. It’s very easy to shape your brows and give them definition with it. It’s so universal:)
The stopper - that’s a trouble, guys! It’s not very economical to use the product that doesn't contain much, because a lot of the product goes out on the brush, and then when you try to return it back to the tube, the stopper prevents the brush from getting the product back in
The size: there’s not much, only 3 g, considering the fact that a lot of the product is just wasted on the tube.
The color, for brunettes it’s better to chose Medium/Deep. It’s not very intense brown with matte finish, there’s no red pigment in!
In the color range there are 2 colors: for the blond haired girls and brunettes.
How to use?
In general, I think you understand what to do:) But I will show you the way I apply it to get beautiful and natural looking eyebrows.
1. At first, I comb my brows. Before that I applied the foundation and set powder on the eyebrow area. Then I comb my hairs upwards.
2. With the fiber infused brush I start to comb the hairs upwards giving them definition.
3. If you don’t want to fill in your brows with brow shadows or pencil, then you'd better dye your eyebrows in advance
The total eye makeup look.
Here, I filled in my eyebrows with the shadows and then used fiber gel.
I’m very delighted with the product!
It gives me:
- great fixation
- right shade with no red pigment
- the opportunity to use it alone, as well as with any other eyebrow product (pencil, shadows)
- natural looking brows!
I’ve been using it for a half a year.
So, with a great pleasure, I do recommend you this interesting fiber infused product. And, in general, I’m very delighted with the products by Benefit!
Thanks for your attention.
