Benefit Gimme Brow Dupe


It’s Emma again. Did you miss me? I missed you. So I bring you some interesting information; I went shopping. And I have the flu. That’s about all I’ve got so let’s move on to the goodies:

I have discovered the new love of my life: The Essence “Make Me Brow”. (As seen below)12833271_10208785781422121_1766007671_n

You may be thinking it sounds and looks familiar. Possibly like the Sephora $30 equivalent…ringing any bells? Let me throw this picture at you to maybe refresh some memories…10013532_10208785781502123_1004903421_n

I’m just going to tell you. I FOUND THE PERFECT DUPE FOR BENEFIT’S GIMME BROW. Which is important for me because I have gone through my tiny little tube and have yet to purchase another. Because you know it costs $30. So instead I spent $3.99

The packaging is extremely similar and the brushes are practically identical. Clearly both companies were going with the same goal or one was copied by the other. But do I care about that? No. I care about performance.

Now this is a very important discovery for me because I’ve recently gotten really into my eyebrows. They have been on fleek everyday since I started using my Anastasia Brow Wiz dupe (read more here) but they are naturally unruly and like to try to do their own thing. Which is where a brow gel comes in to set all the tiny little hairs in place. This product is a  holy grail. I have the second shade (the darker one) just like I had the second Benefit shade. You get more product in the Essence one than you do the Benefit one and I actually think the drugstore version has more colour pigment. I love these gels because they dry down quickly and they don’t move at all through the day so you don’t need to worry about rubbing your eyebrows off. I have used them on their own but I personally prefer to use them as a setting gel. They add colour and thickness to the hairs while still being more natural than a pencil or powder because it’s sticking to your hairs instead of staining the skin underneath them. Overall I give these both a 10/10 and will from now on be purchasing the drugstore version.

I hope you like seeing my little money-saving tips and tricks. 🙂

Until next time I am signing off,

Emma xoxo

FYI: both products were purchased with my own money and all opinions are my own!
