Gimme Brow is a fan favourite to many, but now it's been recalled and our hearts are breaking!

When it comes to brows, we don't mess around and we don't think a lot of others do either. Benefit is a strong go-to when it comes to amazing brow products and an extensive range. The Gimme Brow brow mascara has been an award-winning product for the beauty brand and now it's been recalled!

Benefit stated that while there have been no health issues or injuries as of yet, it is "initiating a voluntary recall of our Gimme Brow product after discovering that recent batches of the product did not meet our stringent quality standards." After discovering that it could cause eye irritation if applied directly to the eye, they announced the recall. While this hasn't happened yet, the brand is taking strong precautions to right the wrong.

It is important to note that Benefit Cosmetics did state that if the Gimme Brow product is applied to the eyebrows, it poses no threat to the person and will work as designed. The recall will include all Gimme Brow products including full size and sample size products as well as any that were included in gift sets. Benefit has stated this is purely a cautionary measure and is offering a full refund wherever the product has been sold.

No other products from Benefit are stated to be faulty or a danger if you place it directly on your eye. To be honest, we think it's pretty cool of Benefit to have such a high standard and only expect the best from their products.
