Benefit Gimme Brow+

I love trying new eyebrow products. Back in highschool, I definitely overplucked my brows, but now I’m loving the bolder brow trend. I find that I often get tired of my 3-step brow process though, so I was excited to try the Benefit Gimme Brow+ which promised to streamline the brow grooming process. This product is available at Sephora and similar retailers for $24.

This product is a brow-volumizing fiber gel which fills in your brows with just one swipe of a tiny spooly brush. It contains microfibers and tinted gel which blend seamlessly into the brow. At first, I was afraid that it wouldn’t really speed up the process if it ended up taking too much time to brush and blend in, but I was so pleasantly surprised! Before this product, this was my brow routine: I brushed my brows before applying a pencil or powder to fill in the brows and would finish with a clear gel. However, this product really does combine all of those steps perfectly. I swipe this over my brows and they are instantly brushed, tinted, and set. Instead of my brows taking 5 minutes in the morning, they literally just take seconds! Overall, I am loving this product! I’ll definitely be purchasing the full-size when this sample runs out.

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil 

Having nice eyebrows is definitely important because brows frame the face. Often, brows need to be filled in. They can get kind of sparse if you pluck a lot (guilty!) Also, as hair greys or goes white, eyebrows seem to disappear, and filling them in can be an easy way to get them back. Recently, I tried the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil Mini which can be purchased from Sephora for $12.

This really is “Goof Proof” as the name says. The formula of this product is very light and blends so easily. It’s almost impossible to apply too much of the product, which is fantastic because it’s really distracting when brows are overfilled. I was so impressed with this product, and I ended up giving it to my aunt who wanted to fill in her brows but who didn’t want to have to put too much time into it every day. This is definitely a great product if you’re on the run or don’t have much time in the morning.

The Porefessional Primer

Benefit is one of my favorite brands at Sephora. I think they have some really fun, innovative products, and I appreciate that they’re less expensive than some other brands at Sephora. Recently, I tried Benefit’s The POREfessional Face Primer, which seems to be a very polarizing product among beauty bloggers. This primer can be purchased at Sephora for $31.

This primer is supposed to smooth skin and reduce the look of pores. It also contains Vitamin E which is great for skin. Now, I don’t really have overly large pores, so it’s hard for me to judge that, but I do love primers that smooth since I have some acne scars. I thought that this worked really well. It feels quite silky and definitely smoothed my skin. It also is oil-free which is great for acne-prone skin. I’ve used it under several different foundations, and it seems to perform well for me no matter if the foundation is dry in formulation or luminous. The reason I test primers with different types of foundations is because some primers that have a silky texture (like this one) don’t always work well with foundations that have similar textures. So, adding two silky products might cause skin to look overly oily and they may melt off during the day which would make them less long-lasting. However, that did not seem to be the case with this product. It performed well with several different foundation formulas.

Will I purchase the full size when my two deluxe samples are used up? Probably not. There are just so many primers out there and this one isn’t amazing. However, I did like it and it’s not terribly expensive for a primer, especially since a little goes a long way. So, I definitely recommend it for people who are in the market for a smoothing primer.

Have you tried this one? What’s your favorite primer? Be sure to let me know in the comment section.
