I have an Elle subscription and this month we got a free sample of Benefit's new Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil. I was given number 02 Light so was hoping for the best. I have my eyebrows dyed medium brown, so this was actually a good match as it is a light chocolate brown shade. I was intrigued to see what shade 1 is like and whether it was more of a blonde shade. There is definitely a gap of shades missing between 1 and 2. 1 looks great for light/ashy blondes but if you are more of a dark/sandy blonde I think you may struggle.
I know that the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz is probably the most popular eyebrow pencil on the beauty market so I thought I would do a comparison of the two. The nib of Brow Wiz is much thinner and more like a pencil whereas the Goof Proof is thicker in width and has a slightly angled nib. The Precisely My Brow Pencil from the line seems to be more a dupe for the Brow Wiz as it is thinner and allows you to create more shape easily if you have sparse brows. The Goof Proof is actually more like the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in terms of the nib type. I find that the Goof Proof is a little more drier and waxier than either of the Anastasia Brow products. Because of this, when creating eyebrow strokes it is a little bit harder because of the drier formula. However, I do actually like this product quite a lot and if someone asked me whether to buy this or not, I would recommend it. The great thing is that it is highly available to buy, unlike the Anastasia Brow products. This is £18.50 for the full size which is not cheap in the slightest, and I would say that I think this is slightly overpriced as there is a lot of good eyebrow products already out there. Also, this does not come with a spoolie with is a massive downfall considering the price. Within this range I think there is a product for everyone as the line contains a variety of different products, and I am definitely intrigued to have a more in depth look in a store.
Have you tried anything from the new Benefit brow range?
