Whilst on the quest for perfect brows, I am pretty much game at trying anything that helps shape, define and highlight my brows and leave them looking perfect. I have so many products for this purpose that I have to dedicate an entire MUJI drawer for the goodies, and I really thought that I had tried most of the products out there. Until last week. I had my brows shaped and tinted by the fab team at Benefit, then made over by the gorgeous Lisa Potter-Dixon. Lisa used the smallest amount of Benefit High Brow Glow* under my arch and I was seriously blown away.
Benefit High Brow Glow is the newest addition to the High Brow family, although it hit the stores in 2012. I had High Brow many years ago, and its matte pale pinkiness just didn’t quite cut it with me and it ended up being given away as I hardly used it. I think this maybe why when High Brow Glow was launched, I didn’t really pay much attention. Benefit High Brow Glow is a champagne pink and shimmery, and I think the micro particles of sparkle within the formulation of the cream stick have me hooked. When one single stroke is applied to under the brow arch it is barely visible, but in the right light it gives off an effect that is so subtle yet makes your brows look pretty spectacular. The champagne pink colour works well with my skin tone and the shimmer isn’t over the top at all. It has more of a light reflecting quality than full on sparkle and when blended in it gives such a subtle luminosity that you can’t help but want to keep looking at your brows!
I have been using Benefit High Brow Glow on my brow arch, cheekbones and cupids bow to highlight those high points. The pencil comes in at 2.8g which compared with the amount that you use each application leads me to believe that it will last forever. Well, not quite but you know what I mean! You’ll need a jumbo pencil sharpener to get that point back on track as it is thicker than an eye liner pencil but not as thick as a jumbo crayon. I’m so pleased that I had a chance meet with the Benefit High Brow Glow as I know that it will be a firm staple in my make up bag for years to come! Benefit High Brow Glow is £15.50 and can be bought directly from Benefit.
