I got this in a kit that Benefit released for defined & refined brows last year.
I’ve heard that the previous formula of this wasn’t amazing and I’ve heard that the shade didn’t work for a lot of people as well. So when I had the chance to trial the new formula I was excited!
I’ll start with the packaging. It is absolutely stunning and sleek. I like the edgy cap packaging, which is very secure so it’s unlikely to fall off in your bag. The lead itself is very soft and comes off very pigmented and smooth. The shade is consistent and easy to blend. I’d say it’s a light pinkish white, not sparkly but it is slightly shiny, which is what you need to highlight the brow bone. It lasts relatively well, not all day but a decent amount of time. I’m also happy that you only need the tiniest amount, meaning the pencil will last a while.
However, I do think that this shade doesn’t match me personally. It has slightly too much pink for it to look natural with my skin tone under my brow. I prefer to use it on the inner corner of my eye more than anything as it’s really brightening and seems to work well for me.
Have you tried this before? What’s your favorite highlighting brow pencil?
