Welcome to my Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil review! Benefit are well known for their kitsch and cute packaging, and the look of their new Goof Proof pencil runs true to their brands fun and quirky feel. I received the Goof Proof Brow Pencil in my July Lookfantastic Beauty Box and couldn’t wait to try it out. I loved the outer packaging and the actual brow pencil itself is just gorgeous in design. The brow pencil comes inside a sturdy silver outer case with a twist up design making it convenient for on the go brows and saves you having to keep that pesky pencil sharpener in tow that always seems to disappear just when we need it the most!The pencil itself has a wide tip to fill in the brows as you drag it across the brow along with a pointed end to define the tail of the brow and give a precise finish.
Unfortunately the colour I received in my box was number 6 (Deep) which is the darkest shade of the whole collection and not suited to my brows at all. Usually I’d go for a blonde or light auburn shade – 01 Light or 02 Light would have been a much better match for me. If you purchase the full sized pencil, you also receive a built in spoolie-brush and Benefit’s signature tips and tricks. With mine being a sample size, unfortunately I don’t have those so can’t pass comment on what they’re like.I wanted to go ahead and try the pencil anyway so lets allow for the super dark ombre brow you’ll see in my photograph! On the inner part of my brow is my usual Illamasqua Brow Gel in Glimpse and on the outer and tail is the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil. The pencil itself is super easy to use – it really is goof proof! I found it so lovely to use on my brows and found that it defined and filled in beautifully and gave me just the effect that I wanted. I only wish I’d received a lighter colour as I’d have loved to have gotten a true feel for how it would look on my brows. The pencil feels really smooth on the brows but not so smooth that you get too much product at once. The pencil also promises to be waterproof and wear for up to twelve hours. I did gently swipe my finger across my brow to test this and found the pencil did smudge (something my Illamasqua Brow Gel and No7 Beautiful Eyebrow Pencil does not do), but saying that, I enjoyed using the pencil that much that I’d be happy to repurchase it in my colour and use a brow gel afterwards to help seal the colour securely.
