Hi lovelies! I’m so excited to tell you all about this product, it has changed everything! I recently got my hands on a free mini deluxe version of the Benefit ‘goof proof’ brow pencil with my July copy of Elle UK magazine! They always do the best free gifts. Having only ever used my Illamasqua brow cake to fill in my brows, I was so excited to try this new little product out! Read on for my first impressions and review and to see before and after pictures!
Obviously I have to mention the packaging, how beautiful is it? Benefit has had a revamp and their packaging now looks so much more luxurious. It was the first thing that caught my eye and I love having it in my make up bag. The second thing you’ll notice as you take the lid off, is that the pencil has a diamond shape, with wide slanted tip. This means you can use the wider end to shape and fill in your brow and the narrower end to define and even out your brows.
I got mine in the shade 2 and as I have medium to dark hair this is perfect for me. I’m not usually a fan of brow pencils but this glides on like butter and the best part is that it’s waterproof and it won’t smudge throughout the day! I have uneven brows, as I think most of us do, and I can never quite get them the same! But I can honestly say that this brow pencil is so easy to use and it has made my mornings easier and my make up routine a lot quicker! It really is goof proof!
Before & After
Left: bushy-looking, uneven and sparse eyebrows Right: fuller, better shaped eyebrows
If you haven’t tried the goof proof brow pencil yet and you’re not sure about paying full price for it without giving it a try then do pick up the latest Elle UK magazine. The added bonus is that every reader will also get a free brow wax from any Benefit brow bar at Debenhams! You will have to purchase your first brow wax before you get the second one free. But it’s so worth it, plus who doesn’t love a freebie?
I don’t think I’ll be going back to my Illamasqua brow cake (looking back, it makes my brows look too harsh and takes forever to apply). As soon as this little mini sample runs out I will be going out to get the full sized version from Benefit!
