One of the things I would most like to change on my face, but no cosmetic procedure is able to do so, is my eyebrows. I have no eyebrows and I hate it. Brows frame the face, and is the main thing that makes a person look omg-so-different without makeup on.
So the top essential items in my makeup bag are eyebrow pencil, brush AND shadows. The thought of forgetting any of them when travelling sends shivers up my spine, as without them, no matter how fab the rest of my makeup is, I’d look like a tortoise.
But remembering so many things for one part of the face is such a drag. Plus have you notice how difficult it is to find a decent eyebrow brush? I don’t mean the long metal bristle ones that come in many brush kits, but proper short but dense bristle brushes.
Thus as soon as I saw the Benefit Brows a-go-go at the MBBE, I had to grab one. It looked promising, and the packaging is so cute!
What They Say:
Benefit Brows a go-go helps to define and refine brows anytime, anywhere. The kit includes light and dark Brow-zings Shaping Powder and Pigmented Wax to define brows, Smokin’ Liner to line eyes, Eye Bright Cream, Brow Highlighter Powder to brighten eyes, Hard angle/talent Brush, Mini Tweezers and a step-by-step lesson.
I really love the packaging as it’s compact and looks super adorable (like most Benefit products). I also loved how many different products are in such a slick palette – not only do you get the brow shadows and brushes, but you also get a little tweezer and light coloured eyeshadows.
The compact also has a built in mirror and a little instruction manual, which I referred to the first time I used it:
Being an oily person I didn’t think the shadow would hold up. But I was pleasantly surprised to find the shadow soft & pigmented (be light-handed when you use it), yet lasts an entire day. The brush is also really easy to manoeuvre – even easier than a pencil!
I’ve also worked out how I can use the rest of the colours for simple eye makeup:
- Use the medium brown wax and dark brown shadow for brows – I use the angled side of the brush for the entire brows, then the more rounded side to soften the lines
- Line the eyes with the black eye pencil
- Apply the taupe shadow all over my lids and under the lower lashline
- Accent the middle of the lids with the pearl shadow
- Highlight the inner eye corners with the light pink creme shadow
Even though this is called a brow kit – the Benefit Brows a-go-go can really be used for the whole eye – which is awesome for people who travels a fair bit for work. And for me - no more fear of leaving my eyebrows at home!!!
Benefit Brows a-go-go retails for AUD$68 and is available from Benefit Boutique, MYER stores nationally, adorebeauty.com.au or 02 8353 5000.
