Benefit Cosmetics Brow Contour Pro

I think most of us will accept that Benefit Cosmetics know their Brows.  If it hadn't been for Benefit and the lovely Benebabes at Brow Time, I would have given up all hope of ever having brows I could do something with, I am the result of over-tweezed teen brows that never grew back.  Now, I can whip out my brow products and attempt a half-decent looking brow rather than a barely there one and feel much more confident.

My absolute favourite brow product is Gimme Brow, it is the one I have re-purchased time and time again, it is the one product I find the easiest to use, closely followed by Goof Proof.  Then in comes the Brow Contour Pro, a four-in-one brow product that looks remarkably like those multicoloured Biros we used in school driving teachers mad by constantly clicking them to switch colours between red and green.

Benefit Cosmetics Brow Contour Pro Presentation Package
I was presented with this beautiful package quite some time ago and although it featured on my Instastories, I wanted to make sure I had used the product enough to be able to share my thoughts about it because admittedly, I was happy enough with Gimme Brow and this is a whole new ball game.

For anyone who is obsessed with their brows, I have no doubt that your arsenal of products is not limited to just one, I am sure you have 3-4 maybe even 5 products that you use at any one time. A makeup artist friend of mine uses no less than 5 different products on her own brows every single morning and thinks this offering from Benefit is simply the best thing she has ever seen. 
Benefit Cosmetics Brow Contour Pro Packaging
The multi-tasking brow pencil features a lighter brown shade, deeper brow shade, an edge definer and an arch highlighter which together create clean, shaped brows which have depth and dimension.  

It comes in five different shade options.  The lightest is 01 which is Blonde/ Light, 02 is Brown/Light, 03 is Brown/Medium, 04 is Brown-Black/Light and 05 is Brown-Black Deep.  I have Shade 02 and it works really well with my brow colouring and I could at a push use 03 when I have a brow tint.

Benefit Cosmetics Brow Contour Pro Lighter Shade
What surprised me the most about this product is just how easy it was to use and it does helpfully come with some instructions too:
Press down lighter shade tab and twist until you see product.
  • Fill in brow with Lighter shade from start to the arch.
  • To switch shades, just press down tab of selected shade until it clicks in place & twist for product.
  • Next, fill in brow with Deeper Shade from arch to the end,
  • Then, stroke Definer below brow from start to end and above brow from arch to end.
  • Blend gently.
  • The last step is to apply the Highlighter beneath your arch and then blend outward.
The nib on each of the shades is really soft and even if you apply pressure it doesn't break, it just glides across the skin.

What I like about the shades is that they are not similar or even the same, they are all different.  There is a clear difference between the lighter and darker brown shades and then a stark difference between the definer and the highlighter.  

On sale for £28.50 you can find it at any Benefit store or stand.  Are you a fan of Benefit Brow products?
