Review: Benefit Instant Brow Pencil

Luckily I've always had think, dark eyebrows (thanks, dad!) and haven’t had to do much to shape them. However, I have noticed that there are areas where hair doesn’t grow in all the way. In the past I have used various shadows to fill them in and clear mascara to set them. I knew there were better products out there to fill in and set my brows but never wanted to invest the money. Until now.

At my most recent Sephora trip (thanks to a birthday gift card from Adrianne) I decided to take some time and look around. The Benefit section caught my eye right away and I wanted to see what other products they had to offer. I noticed the Instant Brow Pencil and was intrigued. I liked how there was a light to medium, medium to dark and deep shade and how it had a brush on the end called a special blending spoolie to keep brows in place. I wasn’t sure if $20 was worth it for such a small item but I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try. I told myself that if I didn’t love it that I would take it back and get something else. 

I couldn’t be happier that I went for it. My brows FINALLY look more natural and full than they ever have. I noticed such a big difference from the shadows I was using before and the product kept my unruly brows in place all day.

I purchased the medium to dark since my eyebrows are a tad darker than my hair color. I used short quick strokes in the direction that my brows naturally grow to apply the product. I quickly realized a lot goes a long way once you use the brush to smooth everything in place.

I am really happy with the product so far and am sad it took me this long to invest in such a great item. It’s true that great brows can transform your entire face! 

What is your daily eyebrow routine? Are there any products you suggest we try?
