As a professional makeup artist, whenever a client asks for a recommendation for a brow product I always recommend Benefit Cosmetics. Benefit has the most incredible range of brow products, both in terms of the product range available as well as the shade range available.
That shade range has just improved even more with the introduction of 4 new shades. This brings their brow shade offering to an incredible 12 shades. Yes, TWELVE!
I have always struggled with finding brow products that work for me. Whether it was back when I was colouring my hair fire red, or as a platinum or white/silver blonde with fair skin, finding brow products that matched and weren’t too harsh on my fair skin was always been a struggle.
When Benefit first launched their expanded brow range several years ago that struggle finally ended with the introduction of Shade 1. I still remember that launch event years back when I was the only Shade 1 in the room. The fact that Benefit caters their products to even those of us that aren’t the majority in the marketplace is something I appreciate so much. If you’ve always struggled finding brow shades that are light enough or cool toned enough etc. I dare you not to find a shade that works for you in Benefits brow range.
The four new shades are:
- 2.5 – Neutral Blonde
- 2.75 – Warm Auburn
- 3.75 – Warm Medium Brown
- GREY – Cool Grey
I’m excited because I now have new shades that work with my fair, neutral-cool tones. I have now added 2.5 and GREY to shade 1 in my brow collection. I think 2.5 Neutral Blonde is my new favorited! GREY adds some added depth and definition to my brows when used sparingly and will be perfect for those with silver blonde or grey hair with a bit deeper skintone than mine.
These new shades are available in two of their brow products:
Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil ($24 USD/$32 CAD) This retractable brow pencil has the most ultra-fine defining precision tip that allows you to create natural looking hair-like strokes for an incredibly natural and defined look. While it’s fine tip is so small it is designed to be unbreakable so you don’t have to worry about its delicate precision causing it to break easily. In fact, I’ve never had one break and I’ve gone through several. The formula is wonderful. It draws on with ease, blends easily, and it’s waterproof.
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil ($24 USD/$32 CAD) On lazier days I reach for this pencil with it’s custom “goof proof” tip and soft colour glide-on formula. It allows you to easily and quickly fill and shape your brows. It is also waterproof and is a perfect product to start with.
Do any of these new shades sound perfect for you?
