Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil, ft. Elle Magazine

Yay or Nay?!

If you didn’t know already Elle magazine has given away an exclusive sample of the new Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil in their July issue. As far as I understand it comes in the shade: 06 deep (a deep brown/ black colour)  – which if I’m honest is far too dark for my natural hair colour.

Talking about the product itself, I feel like this is either going to be one that you love or hate, as this rolls out over the brows with literally no effort at all. This has a smooth and soft texture and the formula gives GREAT pigmentation > making the fact that it’s a darker shade even worse! The ‘nib’ to this product  is once again not my favourite, as it’s one of those which appears angled and slanted in shape, plus it’s quite chunky! I much prefer the defined and petite round nibs when trying to fill and shape my brows. The packaging however is absolutely gorgeous, with it being a metallic & shiny silver and having a beautiful 3-dimensional lid! Benefit have definitely done themselves proud, plus it’s so nice to see brow pencils that aren’t ‘black’, as this stands out against all of the rest.

Overall.. I don’t want to be grumpy on a product that technically I haven’t tried ‘properly’, as this is a mile off the right shade for me. Therefore, I would like to try this product again, with that being in the matching shade to my brow colour. I would also just like to mention, from my experience of this product that when picking your shade.. go for one lighter than you normally would as this has a very pigmented formula, so a little goes a long way!!

    The smaller copy of the magazine comes in shade 02 and the bigger version comes in shade 06.

      Oh really?! I wish I knew that before! I wonder why it doesn’t say clearly on the front of the mag. Thanks for letting me know though, either way 🙂

    That’s such a bummer that it doesn’t come in a lighter shade, because I definitely could not wear it! My brows are so dark compared to my natural hair colour anyways that it would look ridic! Although, love a good freebie and sometimes they are worth buying the magazine for! xx

      That’s the thing, as far as I’m aware it only comes in one shade but I could be wrong, (which would make me look like a right idiot! haha) and your the same as me, my brows are dark anyway and then when I used this I looked like I had to slithers of liquorish above my eyes! It was horrendous! Absolutely! I love a good freebie too, especially when it’s a new product! xx
