Video: Glossier Boy Brow vs. Benefit Gimme Brow

Compare & contrast 2 highly popular brow products

I’m back with another video for you guys today! This is my most detailed one to date where I compare the Glossier Boy Brow & the Benefit Gimme Brow, two products that are both best-sellers for their respective brands. I hope you enjoy it and it gives you some insight if you’re looking to buy one (or both) of these products.

(To check out the post where I hauled Boy Brow and spoke about my experience in the Glossier NYC showroom, click here.)

I included some photos below the video as a supplement showing you brush comparisons, and how both products look on me after application.


One correction: the Benefit Gimme Brow is available in 8 shades, not 6 shades as I stated in the video.

And for those interested, I have ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Kathleenlights on my eyes with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Liner in Alkaline smudged around my upper & lower lash lines. I also have the Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry on my lips.

Have you tried Boy Brow or Gimme Brow? If so, what did you think? I’d love to know!

Hi! I’m Erica, a makeup enthusiast based outside of NYC. I discovered my love of cosmetics back in 2011 when I started watching simple tutorials on YouTube. It was a revelation to me that with just a simple few swipes of mascara or dabs of blush, you could transform into a more enhanced version of yourself. My obsession has not abated over the years, but instead has grown stronger as the beauty industry has gone from strength to strength. After graduating from business school in 2018, I decided to finally share my thoughts and opinions on all things cosmetics and this is where ‘We are glamerus’ was born. I share my musings on a bi-weekly basis on everything from my holy grail products and preferred application techniques, to the latest trends overtaking the beauty world. I hope you enjoy! xo

  1. This is my first time to your site and I’ll be back. I love these types of videos. I especially love it when they are done by someone like you. You just seem to flow right thru it all the while giving us all of the product info that we need to make an informed choice. I also like that you let others know that a similar effect can being achieved using a drugstore brand. Once upon a time I was a single mom and these prices would’ve been way out of my reach. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful comment! I just started incorporating video into my site, and the response has been quite encouraging so far. I’m trying to make them short & snappy but chock full of info, so I’m very glad you got something out of it! Drugstore beauty is so good now that you can match or near-match almost any luxury experience for a much cheaper cost, which is great for us consumers. But I still like a little luxury every now and then 😉.
