I was super lucky to be invited to an exclusive Benefit Brunch recently with 3 other gorgeous Bloggers - Ash Owens, Christina from Freckles and Blush and Kate Manihera. At brunch we had the chance to play with all 10 of Benefit's newly released Brow Products, and I have to say I was mega impressed. There is literally something for everyone in regards to different types of formulas and application but also with the great colour range. At first glance it can be overwhelming trying to figure out which product would be best for you, but I would highly recommend popping into a Benefit counter and getting one of the girls to match you up to your perfect Brow Product. At the end of the brunch I chose 4 things to take with me and I reviewed them for you below.

Goof Proof Brow Pencil $42

This will be my every day go-to brow product. It's super quick and easy to use and extra handy that it has a spooly on the end to brush through your brows. This Brow Pencil is a waxy formula which usually I don't like, but this one is super soft which means no dragging across your skin. The unique shape of the pencil enables you to shade in your whole brow but still get definition along the top and bottom edges. Here is a before and after on my brows, I have Feather Stroke Tattoo in my brows but still like to use a product in them for more definition. Goof Proof has a 12hr wear and is waterproof.

Ka-Brow! $42

LOVE THIS! Introducing a Brow Pomade which is much more user friendly than the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade. Don't get me wrong I love the ABH Dip Brow but I feel like it's more of a Makeup Artist product and I don't tend to recommend it for my clients. Benefit has nailed the formula with this one (and the epic packaging which includes a brush), it has more of a powdery feel to it and has a 24hr wear plus it's waterproof. This is the perfect product if you like a more defined brow, I found it gave sharper lines than with the Goof Proof Pencil and this is what I would use for when I get dolled up for a night out. Check out the before and after below.

Gimme Brow $45

Cutest. Brush. Ever. All cuteness aside though this little guy does a big job of adding fullness to the brow hairs through tiny fibres in the formula. I like to use this for a super natural look on days when I just wanna rock BB Cream and Mascara. This would be perfect for someone who already has semi full brows and wants to even out the colour and add volume.

Ready Set Brow! $42

I have never seen such an amazing Clear Brow Gel brush before! Most Brow Gel wands are so big and chunky that you barely get any product in between the hairs, this one however, is incredible. It has two sides with two different bristle lengths and the formula is mega long lasting. I use a brow gel in conjuction with Ka-Brow! and Goof Proof Brow Pencil to make sure it all stays in place no matter what (it's also waterproof). This is now a staple for my kit too.

Ok so I think I said the word 'Brow' about 100 times but hopefully this review was a little bit helpful!
