When I was a makeup newbie, the first product I got acquainted with from Benefit is the universal cult fave, Coralista blush. Eventually, I found out that their expertise is actually on BROWS! Nowadays, women across cultures are becoming more and more obsessed on brow products. Thus, the term, #browsonfuhleek. But here’s the thing, Benefit’s been doing the #BROWGAMESTRONG for years now. They’re practically the pioneers of promoting the #browgramstrong culture. So it’s just fitting that Benefit’s the one releasing one of the most epic brow collections YET!
Their newest collection has 9 products. The packaging is sooo stunning it gives me so much life every time I use the products. The newest collection is different because:
- They’ve reformulated old favorites and they’ve come up with new amazing product formulations as well.
- All the products have custom designed applicators–no other brow products will have the exact same applicators.
- Lastly, they’ve come up with mistake proof shades.
I was able to try out 5 our of the 9 products:
Benefit Browvo! Conditioning Primer
The primer works two ways: it conditions and it primes. The formula also contains soy proteins and keratin which are known to make brows look fuller and more healthy. This product is supposed to promote brow growth if used every day for a month. It also comes in a clear gel form.
Personally, I like to use it to tame my (sometimes) unruly brows when I wake up. But you have to wait about a minute for it to dry out before you layer on your usual brow products.
Benefit Good Proof Brow Pencil
If I were a makeup noob, this would probably be the brow pencil I’d go for. It’s basically an angled pencil that has a pointed tip for defining your brows as well as a wide tip that instantly fills the brows. I like that it’s dual purpose and it does the job quickly. It comes with a spooly brush and in 6 delicious shades.
Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil
Among all products, this would probably be on my top 2. It’s an ultra-fine pencil that allows me to have complete freedom in shaping and defining my brows. It’s fine tip is also perfect for drawing hairlike strokes at the beginning of the brows for those Cara Delevigne-like, “bushy” brows. It also comes with a spooly brush and in 6 different shades. It also promises 12-hours of wearing time!
Benefit Ka Brow Brows Gel
This brow gel promises buildable color, 24 hours of wear time, and waterproof properties. Of all brow gels I’ve encountered, this is the only one that I’ve been able to use with ease. I normally avoid brow gels like the plague because they’re often overwhelming to use on my ultra sparse brow. But Benefit Kabrow’s formula is not too creamy and not too dry as well. I actually used this every day when I was in Europe. The weather was insane, I would walk at least 3km a day under the heat. And when I get home, most of my makeup’s gone but my eyebrow game remained strong thanks to this baby. It comes with a small brush that you connect to the cap and it comes in 6 shades as well. My only tiny problem with this is that I sometimes find it hard to apply the product because the brush length is quite short.
Benefit Gimme Brow
This is such an interesting product because it’s a brow tint that hepls volumize brows. It contains tiny fibers that adhere to your brows to create and illusion of fuller brows. It comes with a custom tapered brush that makes for mess-free and easy application. The product is buildable and is water resistant. It comes in three shades. I hope they can create more so that more women can enjoy this gem of a product. :)
Guys, I’m head over heels this collection. I’m such a brow fiend and this entire collection just gives me so much lifeee. It’s amazing how Benefit really tried to assess as much brow problems they could and created a collection to save us from our brow woes. Of the five, my top 3 picks would be the: Gimme Brow, Ka Brow, and the Precisely, My Brow Pencil.
I highly recommend you guys to head out to your newest Benefit store and fall in love with these products yourselves. Also, I’m happy to announce that Benefit has now reached Cebu! Hooray for Cebuana Benebabes! <3
