Makeup Review: NEW Benefit Brow Products

Hi loves! Thank you for browsing my blog and reading this post! ❤ ❤ I am still working on posting more reviews/makeup looks, etc!!

I wanted to review and give feedback about BENEFIT COSMETICS’ NEW BROW LINE!!! I was so fortunate to have received them before they launch (JUNE 24th ONLINE) All thanks to Sephora & Benefit’s Brand Rep, Harmony ❤

**ALSO if YOU LIVE IN THE DM(V) AREA (EAST COAST) THE SEPHORA I WORK FOR IS HAVING A HUGE EVENT WITH BENEFIT COSMETICS! (JUNE 25th) I WILL BE GOING IN MORE DEPTH ABOUT THIS TOWARDS THE END OF THE POST!!**

Unfortunately I DID NOT RECIEVE the WHOLE brow line but thankfully I received a good amount and I had the power to choose which ones 😀

Benefit’s new brow line is very similar and (in my opinion) can be compared to Anastasia Beverly Hills’ (ABH) brow line. I WILL be doing this throughout my review – I thought it only made sense because ABH is one the most popular brow lines!

SEE THE WHOLE LINE! @BENEFITCOSMETICS.COM

**NOTE: ALL THESE PRODUCTS WILL BE RELEASED ONLINE ON JUNE 24TH 2016

First thoughts / Impressions:

Super cute packaging, great quality, reminded me of ABH brow line right away

1 – ‘Precisely My Brow’ Pencil ($24 USD)

Comparable to: ABH BROW WIZ ($20 USD)

Very easy to use, double-ended (spoolie & applicator), gives you a natural looking brow. Super rich pigment and waterproof!

I would recommend this pencil for those who want to shape or outline because it has a very skinny precise-non sharpening tip! (just like ABH BROW WIZ) OR I would recommend this product for those who already have a good amount of eyebrow hairs and want to fill in certain areas that look sparse.

(I use 04 medium)
Comes in 6 shades!

2 – ‘KA-BROW’ Cream/Gel ($24 USD)

Comparable to: ABH DIPBROW POMADE

Comes with a built in brush! (very cute idea) This product is perfect for the girl who wants MORE definition in their brows. The cream/gel is very SMOOTH and PIGMENTED!

I recommend this product for those who do not have thick brows or maybe even no brows at all. It can be a little difficult to get use to if you are not already drawing in your brows with a cream/gel so I always insist on PRACTICING! I am STILL practicing with this product because I’m so use to ABH dipbrow pomade!

ABH VS. BENEFIT?
Benefit’s cream/gel color is very very smooth, more so than ABH. I find myself dipping into the ABH dipbrow pomade more often than Benefit’s ‘Ka-brow’

I’m unsure if anyone has noticed ABH dipbrow pomade clumps into little balls(?) which I find a bit annoying, Benefit’s ‘Ka-Brow’ does no such thing, its so soft it doesn’t clump at all.

The only downfall I can think of is the size. ABH’s dipbrow POT seems a lot larger than Benefit’s ‘Ka-brow’ and I have a feeling I will go through my ‘ka-brow’ very fast.

3 – ‘Gimmie Brow’ Volumizing Brow Gel ($24 USD)

Comparable to: ABH BROW GEL

Very small in size if you are comparing ABH’s brow gel. The tip of the brush and its bristles are a lot smaller compared to ABH. This can be seen as a good or bad ting depending on your preference. This product is considered ‘water-resistant’ and ‘long-wearing’ they also have ‘fibers’ to give you that extra volume in your brows.

I recommend this product as a ‘MUST HAVE’ after any brow product… After filling in I always recommend a brow gel in order to keep your brows IN PLACE. I just feel like they go HAND-IN-HAND. I would also suggest this product for those who honestly have super thin brows and want to add a little more ‘UMPH’ to them.

BOTH brands have good pigment in their brow gel’s! Benefit may have the upper hand though, because of their ‘micro fibers’ which can make brows appear thicker!

(I use the shade 03 medium)
Comes in 3 shades!

4 – ‘Brow Zings’ Eyebrow Shaping Kit ($32 USD)

Comparable to: ABH POWDER DUO/ABH BROW KIT ‘BEAUTY EXPRESS’

I love Benefit’s Brow Zings!! So as I’ve noted, these can be comparable to ABH powder duo OR her ‘beauty express’ brow kit. There are A LOT of differences between the two, one being; Benefit has a wax-side and a powder side, a brow brush and tweezers. The ABH powder duos ONLY come with two different powders (difference in color) while the ABH brow kits or ‘Beauty Express’ kits come with brow stencils, highlighting tools, and a brow brush.

If you are a person who thinks they need a little more help in doing their brows I would stick to the ABH brow kit. You have everything you need in one! Stencils to help you shape your brows, color to fill them in, and even a highlight color. The only downside to this kit is the limited amount of colors (2 shades of blonde or brunette).

I’m currently obsessed with the Brow Zings! I was taught by a benefit brand representative that you should slide your brush through the wax first (the darker side) then the powder side (the lighter side) and then apply! So its super easy to use but might be a little difficult to get use to if you don’t normally use powder. These last for about 12 hours, so it IS NOT water resistant/waterproof. I recommend this product for those who are on the go and just want to fill in sparse areas! I would also recommend using another product to create an outline for your brows (ex. Precisely my brow pencil/KABROW/Goof-Proof Pencil) then using the brow-zings to fill in!

When applying onto myself, the color was a bit light(?) – but it could honestly be because I am NOT USE to using a powder. (I would always use ABH dipbrow pomade and have been trying BENEFITS ‘KA-BROW’)

Comes in 6 shades!
