Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil Review

So unless you’ve been living under a rock recently you’ll be aware that Elle Magazine allowed us the opportunity to experience Benefit’s brand new Goof Proof eyebrow pencil.

Of course it was popular but I was very surprised to pick up the last one in my local Tesco in a light shade! I heard lots of bloggers had picked up darker shades as dark as number 6, but I managed to pick up a number 2!

When I opened it I was so chuffed and couldn’t wait to trial it! I’ve swatched the pencil for you and after wearing it a few days I am fully prepared to report back my findings.


The first thing that would strike anybody about this is the bloody gorgeous packaging! This is dressing table worthy packaging if I ever did see one!  How frickin amazing is this design?!

The gorgeous slick silver with black outlined pink writing and the crazy lid make for a very aesthetically pleasing product, it’s the first eyebrow pencil that I have personally seen of its kind and it really makes it stand out. 10 out of 10 to Benefit for this fabulous piece!

The pencil itself has a pointed end to fill in every nook and cranny and the shape allows you to create a defined brow. The actual full sized product is double ended with a spoolie on the other end but I can live without that for now.


The colour range goes from 1-6 and I got shade 2. I would have preferred shade 1 but as I got it in a magazine I didn’t really have a choice but I did manage to make it work.

The very first application to swatch it was hard as it didn’t draw very well but after a few strokes it glided nicely.  It applies so nicely to your eyebrows and instantly fills for a quick and easy eyebrow fill!

It makes quick work of filling your eyebrows which is fab if you’re in a rush in the morning.

You can go for it and really fill them in solidly or you can apply a light hand and fill them in to look more natural whilst still ensuring you get any gaps. So it’s a very versatile product.


This lasted me allll day im talking from 8am to bed time when I remove my makeup and this does not budge one bit yet it is easily removed with makeup remover.


This is definitely a fab product and worth the £4.10 I paid for the magazine with the freebie. Would I pay £18.50 for the full size? Probably not but that’s only because I cannot afford to spend that on a brow product but if I could afford it I definitely would.

Everything about this product is fab including the packaging!

I am very jealous of all of the bloggers that received the huge boxes full of the new Benefit brow products!

    Ooh the packaging IS really eye-catching!
    I still the find whole concept of getting makeup with your magazine such a neat idea! We don’t have that here in Canada.
