A little bit of my own brow history for you... If you look deep enough into my tagged photos on Facebook you might be able to see the slightly terrifying proof of earlier days experimenting with filling in my brows, I used to block fill in my brows so there was absolutely no skin showing through, very strong shape and almost offensive to look at...
But hey at the time I thought they looked amazing!
Thankfully along the way I got better and better at mastering a more natural brow, You name it I have tried it! Up until about a year ago I was just using the Anastasia Brow Whiz in Soft Brown and my absolute favourite brow gel Loreal Brow Artist Plumper in Brunette which I loved the look these gave, A soft feathery brow strengthening my shape and giving a fuller look, But I hated how long it took me do to this routine! It became so essential that I wouldn't go anywhere without my brows done which was such a pain. Eventually I got so lazy I just used the brow gel.
With the market being flooded with so many brow products Im always on the hunt to try something new thats quick and delivers
As you know I recently went to the launch of Benefit Cosmetics new Brow product Launch! You can read more about the actual event in my previous post. I was lucky enough to take home a few of the goodies from the event and have been testing them everyday since!
Heres my thoughts on each product so far..
Precisely My Brow Pencil - I got shade 3 which TBH is a little light for me I think I could have got either a 4 or a 5. But the product itself is a very skinny pencil that winds up, really firm and gives you lots great control. The fine nib means its great for creating hair like strokes, It reminds me a lot of the ABH Brow wiz and has a nice spooly on the end. It does require quite a bit of time filling in
Brow Conditioning Primer - This is the one product I don't really understand and I felt like it may be a bit gimmicky. It didn't make too much of a difference to my brows, probably a little bit of an un necessary step if you ask me.
Ready Set Brow - Is simply a clear brow gel, This bad boy has some serious hold in a really good way. The one product I wasn't that bothered about but holy heck I love this stuff! So much so that I will probably pick up another one of these for my kit
If you have really thick unruly brows then this would be perfect for you
Goof Proof Brow Pencil - This one gets a massive thumbs up from me its a much thicker more angled nib with the spooly on the end.
Super quick and easy to build up your brow shape, I thought I would prefer the 'precisely my brow pencil' over this but this one definitely has my heart
I have shade 6 which I thought would be way too dark but using a light hand it looks fine
Gimme Brow - This product has always been permanent in the line they have just re packaged it and added a third shade. I have used this in the past and loved it, It really thickens the brows as the formula has little tiny fibres in it (not visible once applied)
It really does what it says and well!
Ka Brow - I do love a good brow pomade purely because they are so darn long lasting! With working long hours for me especially doing a 12Hr shift at the salon from time to time a pomade is the way to go as it lasts literally all day! This one does not disappoint! I comes with its own mini angled brush that pops off the top, which surprisingly is very good! Usually when products come with a brush they are not very good at all but this one is awesome and I have been using it. Perfect for travelling as well which I am all about! I wouldn't say the pomade itself is as pigmented as ABH dip brow but I almost like that better because it gives a more natural and subtle finish!
High Brow - Another product that I was kind of like 'Meh' I don't think I'll get that much use out of but it really does make a difference when applying under your arches to lift the brow and highlight, super easy to use and very creamy. I like to just apply and blend with my finger tips.
Most definitely not an everyday kinda step for me but if I am going out or to an event and doing full on glam with lashes and all this step is just that little bit extra.. and we all like feeling a little EXTRA from time to time!
Just to wrap things up and narrow things down as there is a lot of products in this range and you might be feeling a little like ummm well what should I use or try I can't use them all I only have two eyebrows on this face girl?!
My absolute faves and would highly recommend are Goof proof brow pencil, gimme brow and ready set brow. That combo right there has me like hey girl #BrowsOnFleek
and if your feeling a little EXTRA.. Defs High brow ;)
