I am sure i wasn't the only one excited when i heard Benefit weree giving a vamp over, on their brow products as well as releasing new wonders to their already amazing collection! So i was double excited when i purchased Elle magazine to find they had the new Benefit Goof Proof Brow pencil inside.
According to Benefit
"Anyone can become a brow expert with this super easy brow filling & shaping pencil. Fast, full & natural-looking brows magically appear, thanks to the glide on formula, soft colour and goof-proof tip"
I love the packaging as always with Benefit! I always feel the dying urge to never throw any of their pretty packaging away........seriously i even keep the boxes!!
This streamline pencil feels like it has been dipped into metallic silver, it's light weight and with slopped sides almost giving the pencil a triangle shape leaving it easy to hold and a comfortable grip. The lid i adore! with an art deco feel its diamond pattern gives an old Hollywood feel and a more high end look.
The end of the pencil doesn't slot into the lid so if your like me and still revert back to school days of taking lids off pens and sticking them on the ends ( i do it without noticing i am actually doing it!) it wont work, so don't try haha
The brow product is a twist up, which i personally like as i can NEVER find a sharpener when i need one! the shape of the nip is almost like a diamond/tear shape which carries on the theme of the packaging beautifully, its not the same as the push up liner by Benefit but it does remind me of it. The point allows you to easily define your brows and the wide section lets you fill them in with breeze.
The formula is harder than i was expecting, its not a soft khol formula it almost feels like wax but at the same time it is easy to blend across your brows. I love the option of using the thin point to define and swapping quickly and easily to the wider section to effortlessly fill in the rest.
Claiming to be 24 hour wear and waterproof i don't think you will be needing to top your brows with gel.
The formula was also easy to remove with a simple makeup wipe! which i was pleasantly surprised as i was thinking it may be tough to remove like their push up liner, so this is a big bonus!

Most products including the Goof Proof eyebrow pencil will be available in 6 shades, I am using shade 6 - the darkest shade, the fabulous thing is that once you find the shade number you like it should be the same number for the whole range!
