When Benefit launched their new brow collection I was so excited but I didn't want to invest in full sizes before trying the products for myself or reading reviews. A few magazines have been having mini sizes of the new products, you might have seen my Goof Proof review here, so when I found out Ready, Set, Brow! was free with Marie Claire I knew I had to pick up a copy! A quick heads up - Glamour has a mini Gimme Brow this month so grab it while you can as that is one amazing brow product!
Ready, Set, Brow! is a brand new product from Benefit and to be honest I haven't heard anything about it! I hadn't seen any reviews or even a mention which I am not sure why because I have been really enjoying using it! This is an invisible 24 hour shaping and setting gel for the brows, I had been in serious need of a new clear brow gel so this came out at the perfect time! This is completely different to any other clear setting gel I have used before and it has made such a difference to my brows, not to mention how much better that last throughout the day now!
Lets talk about the packaging first! Benefit have revamped the packaging on all of their brow products and even these samples are the cutest things - I love the all silver theme amoung the products. This sample size is 3.5ml which I think is a decent size when I only really paid £3.99 for it. The wand of this brow gel is one of the main reasons that I am obsessed with it - it's plastic! The brush is made up of plastic bristles which are custom molded to brush through the brow hairs perfectly.
The brow gel itself is slightly thinner that what I am used to which actually works better than I thought it would! It coats through the brows well and doesn't make them feel wet and the skin around the products doesn't get excess product as the wand isn't very wide. Even though the formula is slightly thinner, it sets very quickly! The first couple of times that I used it I thought my brows has that crunchy feeling but it actually feels invisible on the brows. The formula doesn't flake off throughout the day and the brows don't feel like you have sprayed a tonne of hairspray on them or anything like that. In terms of how long lasting it is on the brows, my brows will still look as if I have just done them when it comes to removing my makeup without one hair out of place! It doesn't interfere with any other brow products I use either - its another fab product from Benefit Cosmetcs!
