Since Benefit brought out their Gimme Brow fibre gel, brands have been climbing over themselves to roll out their own brow gels products.
I have already reviewed the Benefit offering here, but today I wanted to show you the Rimmel version which retails for £3.99.
The gel itself is wet, tinted and has great lasting power. It doesn’t feel clumpy or caked during the day. The Benefit product contains small microfibers which make the product a drier application and as a result takes a few goes to build up the lash colour but I find the Rimmel much quicker to use.
My only gripe with the Rimmel product is the size of the wand. It’s mahoosive! I am pretty sparse in the brow department but the brush is the same size as a mascara wand! I definitely prefer the control and size of the Benefit wand.
I chose the lightest shade in blonde and it was perfect for when I had my white hair and now I have toned it down. It is quite a dark gel for blonde so don’t discount it and go darker.
Now that I have tried both, I can see that they very clearly have their own appeal and with that come with their own Pro’s and Con’s. I’d probably buy the Rimmel one again, before I buy the Benefit version.
