Benefit are back with a big release on the 24th of June with the on trend new brow products and as always I’m so excited to be able to buy them soon! With the new packaging on some existing products whilst adding in some completely brand new ones how can you not look at them and not want to go running to your nearest Benefit counter and get the girls to give you amazing brows we all wish for. They literally have everything for your brow dilemma’s in this range which I love and even a lighter shade for you blonde’s.
I had the privilege in trying out some of these products before the release date as I got invited by the Benebabe Jo from the John Lewis counter, this was such a treat.
Firstly we used the product Browvo! Conditioning Primer before adding on any products, this comes in a tube with a soft touch applicator which you brush through your brow hair. If you have sparse brows then this is for you as it helps to re grow, giving you fuller brows. This was used to tame my hair and keep it in place as it comes out in a clear gel.
We went for two brows looks, one being a natural everyday which I can wear for work and then another more defined strong brow perfect for nights out. I’ve never seen my brows like this so I was interested in the results.
For the more natural looking brows Precisely, My Brow Pencil in shade 3 was applied, this ultra thin pencil creates hair stroke lines to help shape and fill in my brows. One of my favourites from the range and I will be purchasing as soon as the 24th June rolls around. To set it all in 3D Brow Tones was brushed through as this is a gel which creates subtle highlights in my darker hair, I’d say this is great for people with thicker hairy brows to show more results.
Elle Magazine this month are featuring a sample of this Goof Brow Pencil in different shades along with a free Benefit Brow Wax, if you wanted to get your hands on a sample while you still can. This is great for both natural looking or bolder brows. I got this in shade 2 which is slightly too light for me, I can still make it work with adding brow gel on top though. It has a slanted tip to give you the option of shaping with the thinner side and filling in with the thicker tip, while I have been enjoying using this I don’t think I will be rushing to purchase this just yet once it’s released as I prefer the Precisely, My Brows Pencil.
For the more bolder brows Ka-Brow cream-gel colour was applied in shade 2. I must mention that with this product, strangely the colours come out darker so whereas I am normally a shade 3, a shade 2 was the perfect match for me in this but there is a shade 1 available which is new. I love the design of this product as you can flip the brush around into the cap for a better grip and easily dip and apply the hard slanted brush to make your brows defined, you can layer this as much as you like until you’re happy with the look. As I’ve said before I have never used a brow pomade so this took me a while to get used to the look and I love the look of the sharp defined lines you can get with this so I will also be purchasing this too.
I was given this Gimme Brows sample to take home with me as this isn’t a new product and by now most people who love Benefit would’ve heard/used this, but for those who haven’t this is a tinted brow gel which can be used on its own to fill in your brows or on top of products to keep everything in place. What I love about this brow gel compared to most cheaper alternatives is the brush size, this makes a massive difference as it needs to be small to really get into those hair fibres without it getting all messy outside the brow, which happens to me a lot with other brush wands.
Of course you can’t go to a Benefit counter without getting a full Benefit makeover. Here is the finished look with my Ka-brows, Hoola bronzer, Dandelion blusher, They’re Real purple eyeliner and black mascara, Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette, Shy Beam & Watt’s Up highlighter, Erase Paste under eye concealer, Hello Flawless foundation & powder.
Thank you to Jo from the Benefit counter for a wonderful experience and I can’t wait to go brow shopping next week!
