Of the three this was my least favorite but I like to use to fill in spots but it does need plenty of smudging
My brows (among other things have been driving me crazy) nothing like being a fashion blogger to be hyper aware of how one looks. Every time I do a shoot and and go through the edit, I am like hmmm is that what I really look like? One time a friend of mine named Rebecca once said to me that she realized that maybe she was more attractive in her head then she really was. I agreed, “same here” I said. Of course she said this tongue in cheek, and we both laughed but there was a wee bit of truth in it. And around that time I was going through what one of my friends called a baby goth stage—whatever that means. And I went way over board plucking my brows. And I am here to report—the urban legend is true. They don’t grow back. Of course I am now kicking myself, but what is done is done. The only thing I can do now is damage control, so last week I headed off to Sephora and walked out with a bag full of brow products from Benefit. Read on for the full report.
This was my favorite of the three, seriously this is the easiest to use brow pencil I have come across
This I like to use in conjunction with the Goof Proof Brow Pencil. But the #4 shade is too light for me, I need to go back and get the darker #6 shade.
I was genuinely surprised at how well these products worked. I have complained on the blog before how hard it was to find brow products dark enough for my brows. It seems that the darkest color most brow pencils come in is a medium rust toned brown, which is much lighter then dark brown and substantially lighter then black—a hair color half the planet has. One of the reasons I tried Benefit was because they make a shade that is dark enough for my brows. My favorite of the group hands down is the Goof Proof Brow Pencil, seriously it is the easiest brow pencil I have ever used and it achieves super natural looking results. I like to use it with the Brow Zings brow powder, which I use to fill in my brows along with the angled Goof Proof pencil. My least favorite is the KA Brow! Eyebrow Cream it kind of goes on like a liquid liner, it is definitely intense. But I find if I dot it on and smudge it, I can get a more natural look. This brow cream is great though for more dramatic evening looks. I will have to unveil my newly found brows on my next outfit post. And the next thing on my list? Benefits Fakeup Hydrating Eye Concealer. I have heard good things about it. It conceals and hydrates at the same time. I am so in need of this as my skin is so dry it seems most makeup makes it look even drier.
