When I treated myself to a couple of Glossier items recently, I just had to pick up the Glossier Boy Brow in the shade Blond. I’ve heard amazing things and I’ve been looking for a cheaper and cruelty-free alternative to the Benefit Gimme Brow after the Essence Make Me Brow didn’t quite hit the mark.
I’ve got fairly decent brows so I’m not looking for a product that fills them all in. This is why I steer clear of pomades and pencils – why add to something that doesn’t need it? I like brow gels that add that little something, which is exactly why the Glossier Boy Brow sounded right up my street.
The wand isn’t as tapered as I’d like it to be, meaning it picks up far more product that I need it to. Yes, it’s frustrating, but it’s not the end of the world. This is the lightest shade in the collection, and it’s also slightly darker than the lightest shade in the Gimme Brow range. This isn’t a huge issue, but it’s just something to be aware of.
I think you need fairly decent natural brows for this product to work for you as it doesn’t add too much to what’s there already, but Glossier Boy Brow is definitely something that works for me. It’s fairly effortless to get a decent looking brow with this product and I’m pretty happy with it for every day use. I wouldn’t use this product if you need hold (although maybe the clear gel does the trick for that), but it works for what I need it for and that’s all that matters…to me anyway!
Honestly the Glossier Boy Brow isn’t quite as good as the Benefit Gimme Brow but it’s a pretty close second. And I’ll probably be repurchasing the Glossier cult favourite over the Benefit classic once I’ve used this up. Glossier Boy Brow is 70% of the price of Benefit Gimme Brow and it’s also cruelty free, so why would I not?
Are you interested in picking up the Glossier Boy Brow? Or maybe you’ve got your eye on something else from the brand. I know I do! I’ve got my eye on a couple of other bits at the moment and I’m definitely going to treat myself in the next few weeks. Want 10% off your first order? You can get it here!
