Benefit Gimme Brow vs Urban Decay Brow Tamer

Benefit Gimme Brow vs Urban Decay Brow Tamer Eyebrow Mascara

I am a huge fan of Benefit Gimme Brow, but when I started to come to the end of the tube at the same time as Urban Decay released their Brow Tamer I couldn't help trying something new.  Rather than reviewing the Brow Tamer on it's own, I thought I'd compare the two eye brow mascaras side-by-side.

Price
As much as I like to think if a product really is brilliant price doesn't matter, it does.  Both are relatively easy to get your hands on from the usual places.  Gimme Brow is £18.50 for 3ml and Brow Tamer is £15 for 4.5ml, so Urban Decay are knocking this one out of the park.

Product
Both products are basically tinted brow gels.  They both add a hint of colour to my brows and give some hold to the hairs.  I honestly think the actual products themselves are really similar, and give the same amount of colour and hold to my brows.

Packaging
As cute and small as Gimme Brow is, Urban Decay are killing it with the packaging - look at that gorgeous metallic purple! When is comes to the wand, Benefit have the edge in my eyes.  The tiny size of the Gimme Brow wand gives extra control over where you apply the product and somehow the little bristles grab hold of the hairs better to coat them in product and move them to where you want them.

Verdict
Even though I love the tiny Benefit wand, for me the Urban Decay Brow Tamer is the winner here.  The packaging is gorgeous, the product is brilliant and it's better value for money.
