Getting enough internet to get this post up has been basically impossible so I also apologise for the lack of post on Sunday as I didn't schedule any (Never trust the holiday wifi) Today I thought I would share my thoughts on some of benefits new brow products. I actually ordered these when there was an offer on the website which offered 3 of the new brow products and a free gift which was the luv it up eyeshadow tin for under £60.
I am really happy with the shade of all three products I went for 5 which is the darkest cool toned shade and I works really well with my hair. Kabrow is just the tiniest bit warmer however this can easily be fixed by using a little Gimme brow over the top. I know a lot of people really love the new packaging however I have to say I'm not sure. In my opinion I think it's a little garish however I suppose that's what Benefit go for. That being said that is literally my only issue with these products and I can definitely get past it!
Precisely my brow pencil -
This one is the thinner of the two brow pencils in the new range, I've heard it compared to the Anastasia brow wiz on many occasions and I also find it to be very similar to the Smashbox Brow tech matte pencil. It has a very thin nib which makes it the perfect pencil to draw in individual brow hairs. What I like about it is that it isn't a very dry product but it also isn't super slippy. Once on the brows I find I can get a good 9 hours out of it before it begins to fade in the places where there are less hairs and it lasts a good 10 or 11 on the areas that have quite a lot of hair.

Gimme Brow -
This is actually my second tube of this and I'm not sure I've ever actually reviewed it. It is a tinted brow gel which contains fibres, I love this one as it is a great multi use product. I can use it as a setting gel when I use pencil through my brows but I can also use it alone when I'm doing quite minimal makeup. The shade of this is also really cool toned meaning that I can use it to cool down my brows when I use products that are a little too warm for my hair colour. This isn't the cheapest however I do really like it and would definitely recommend.
This one is taking a little getting used to, I thought it would be similar to the Anastasia dip brow however it is much more of a gel texture where as the Anastasia is a more cream formula. This is so highly pigmented and I have to use such a light hand with it. This is definitely one of those products that is best for someone who is a little more experienced as it can leave you with sharpie brows if you aren't careful. This does last really well and I find I can get a good 10 hours out of it before it begins to look a little rough around the edges.
Overall I'm really happy with these products and I will definitely be investing in more of the range. I've currently got my eye on the brow zings!
