Today, I am going to talk about Benefit's only brow setting gel. According to Benefit:
Tint, tame and set brows in record time! This brush-on gel dries to a natural-looking finish for instantly beautiful brows. One natural shade dresses up all brows.
Speed Brow only comes in one shade, Neutral. If I'm not mistaken, this is the replacement of the discontinued clear brow gel from the same brand.

It comes with a traditional brush wand. The even spacing in between the bristles lets me comb my brow strands into place neatly and evenly, and prevents the product from clumping on the wand.
Here's a swatch of the product: It's a midtone brown shade. Consistency is a watery kind of gel, and I like how it transfers easily onto my brows. This is a lil' unnecessary, but I just wanna say that I like its cooling effect. :D
Anyway, the product is not as opaque as Majolica Majorca's Brow and Lash Colorist and M.A.C's Brow Set--it just imparts a VERY sheer tint on the brows. Here are photos:

It took me around three swipes to achieve this little difference on the tone of my brows.

Upon application, the watery gel consistency breaks the flatness of the brow powder by giving it a dewy, youthful finish. Eventually, after a few hours of wear, Speed Brow helps soften the striking, matte look of the powder. It dries up quickly, enhances the color of my brows for just a bit, and gives it an au naturel look.
The good thing about this brow gel is it does not make my brows feel and look stiff. It also holds hair strands in place all day--no reapplication needed. It doesn't even require any expert technique to make it work which makes it newbie- friendly. However, I just find that it's too sheer for my liking as I like my brow gels a wee bit opaque.
It's not the best thing for ladies who have sparse brows as this product cannot enhance its shade nor fake thickness. But if you want a brow gel that gives your brows a clean, soft, all- day hold, I would recommend this. It's best for ladies who have bushy brows as it will keep long strands from being entangled and keep 'em tidy for the whole day.
