Perfecting My Brows With Benefit Cosmetics

Benefit have really upped their game in terms of brow products recently, I am a big lover of styling my brows so for them to release new products to try, is a bonus. Since I last purchased from the brand, they have re-launched the brow range with new glamorous packaging and a few new products to the line. When it comes to buying makeup, I am always drawn in by nice packaging so, for me, I knew I had to try a few bits from the range. If you are on the hunt for the perfect brow product or you just fancy trying something new, I am sure one of these products will suit you.
My favourite product of the range has to be the Benefit Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil. This product is very similar to the NYX Micro Brow Pencil and Anastasia Brow Wiz, two of my holy grail eyebrow products. I really like eyebrow products that are easy and precise to use, allowing you to achieve a natural and perfected look. This pencil has a very fine nib which allows you to create individual hairs on the skin, keeping the look natural and soft. I have shade 3 in this product and it suits me perfectly, I am always buying eyebrow products that are too dark for me yet this is perfect and I love it. The pencil glides onto the skin with ease and stays in place all day, it is very important to me that my eyebrows stay looking good all day long and this product really helps me to achieve this. At £20.00, this product is slightly more expensive than the two similar products I mentioned however, it is a product I will certainly re-purchase and keep in my makeup bag for a good while.

Another lovely product is the Benefit Ka-Brow! Eyebrow Cream-Gel Colour which is a very unique product that comes in two parts. With this product you receive a jar of tinted brow product and a small angled brush which fits perfectly into the lid, very handy for on the go. What I really enjoy about this particular product is how easy it is to use and how much product is inside the jar, I feel as though it will last me a life time! The product is of a lovely smooth texture that works very nicely against the skin, gliding on with ease allowing you to achieve your desired look. I personally like to keep it natural but with this product you can add more layers to build up the intensity. The retail price of the Cream-Gel Colour is also £20.00 and although a little more expensive than your standard high street product, it is worth every penny. 
The final product to mention is the Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil, also retailing at £20.00. This pencil is available in five shades and the shade I am using is shade 02, although I would like to try shade 03 to see how it compares. This product is very much designed for people who like a quick and easy application with a very natural and not-so-perfected result. The eyebrow pencil has a chisel tip which makes it very easy to apply to the skin and achieve a quick, filled in brow, in just a few minutes. I personally, found this product a little harder to use as the nip is on the larger side and I prefer a smaller nib like the pencil mentioned previously. That being said, I did really enjoy this product and it's definitely one I will keep in my collection to reach for on those no-makeup days or when I am looking for a less perfected result. 

I have been very impressed by the Benefit brow range and I can't wait to try even more products like the newly formulated Brow Zings, an all time favourite from my teenage years!

Have you tried any of the Benefit brow products? Do you love the packaging too?
