Essence 'Make Me Brow' Eyebrow Gel Mascara

I was in the market for a new brow gel, and I saw this one by Essence and I wondered how it would compare to it's obvious rival - Benefit's Gimmie Brow. And for £2.50 I couldn't pass up on the opportunity to find out.

The packaging rivals the Benefit 'Gimmie Brow', however it lacks something that 'Gimmie Brow' has, and sadly looks quite cheap, but when the product is fantastic it doesn't matter if the packaging falls short. The teeny tiny wand makes application a breeze, and doesn't coat any of my unwanted fine hairs. It's wide enough to coat the hairs, nearest the bridge of my nose,  upwards and thin enough to run it through the tail of my brow.

The pigmentation of this gel is insane, sadly I deleted my swatches off my camera before I uploaded them, so I don't have any now, but I will update this post on Friday with the swatches. The pigmentation can sometimes take me by surprise especially if I am too heavy handed with the wand. The formula is thin is consistency, and sets like glue, seriously your brows would survive gale force winds. This, much like Gimmie Brow, sadly only comes in two shades, so it might not be the perfect product for everyone.

This brow gel has become a fast favourite brow product and I use it on a daily basis, and for £2.50 its a complete and utter bargain. Yet again another product from Essence which has blown me away, this brand is becoming one of my favourites at the drugstore.

Have you tried the Gimmie Brow Rival?
