As part of being an Ultamate Platinum member (yey!) I was given a free sample of Benefit’s new eyebrow pencil called Goof Proof Brow Pencil. Boy I was excited, especially because it came in a beautiful packaging plus it says that it’s waterproof for about 12 hours and that the formula adheres to the hair, not on the skin. Well, my first thought was, how’s it gonna be compared to the famous Anastasia Brow Wiz, Brow Definer and even to Burberry’s Effortless Eyebrow Definer?
Here’s my take, this Benefit Eyebrow pencil is waxier, creamier and softer than Anastasia’s or Burberry’s. Thus the reason why it adheres to the hair better and not much on the skin. However, it still does adheres on the skin slightly somehow, and is very very pigmented, so “a little goes a long way” for this. I mentioned that this formula is softer than most that I’ve used, so be careful in your application, as this could break easily, and there’s not much product in its container. Speaking of application, it’s very easy to apply, and it glides well while really filling your patchy eyebrows, which is my main brow issue. As far as longevity is concern, this is indeed long wearing like Anastasia’s brow products. However, if you already have any of Anastasia’s Brow products, you probably won’t need this, as I couldn’t see much difference between the two.
On the downside, I wish I was sent a darker shade, since shade no.3 seems lighter on my NC30-35 skin, but, it’s still wearable somehow. 🙂
