Benefit Instant BROW pencil

A couple of year ago I discovered the totally amazing browzings by benefit which completely changed my brow life! So ...I didn't hesitate (in the slightest) to buy benefits new instant brow pencil in the hope that this lived up to the high expectations I had for it. 


And it definitely didn't disappoint... It feels more like a gel than a pencil as the texture is so smooth and glides on very gently. It gives off a very natural look and isn't too heavy like other pencils I've tried which tend to look slightly unnatural and dark. If you mark the pencil in the wrong place you can smudge it off really easily. This comes as a surprise to me since it has long staying power throughout the day on my brows so I'm assuming it must attach on slightly to the brow hairs themselves.


Could probably do with sharpening mine now, Well loved product right there!

I wouldn't say I prefer it to the browzings powder as they are both very different products. I think the powder gives a very natural look for day to day wear, where as this is slightly more of a waxy feel on the brows and to me seems like it would work better if I was going for a more dramatic make up look. I think it would be perfect for a night out when you have eyeshadows/eyeliner on and wanted to make sure your eyebrows didn't look too light in comparison (particularly in photos). 


The real winner for me with this product is the little spoolie (see photo above) on one side of the pencil. I have never tried brushing  through my brows with anything before and it honestly does really help with shaping them before applying any brow products. You can almost sculpt them into any shape that you want as you have full control of what way your eyebrow hairs go. It also helps with taming them and making sure there are no fly away hairs so your brows can look as perfect as you want them to!
