Benefit Foolproof Brow (£20) would appear to exactly the right brow product for me. This new addition to the already impressive line-up of brow buys from Benefit promises “foolproof fullness and a soft, natural look” and claims to be ideal for “transforming sparse brows into full-looking brows”.
Well, with my sparse brows – they are especially sparse at each end – you would think that I was the ideal candidate for testing Benefit Foolproof Brow. What’s different about this brow cream is that it is two-tone: the idea is that you create a more natural look by gradating the colour of the brows from light to dark, rather than using one shade throughout – a look which can make brows look quite flat and fake.
The Benefit Foolproof Brow comes in a cute little metal case, reminiscent of an antique pill box, and there is a little double-ended applicator, with a blending sponge at one end and a mascara wand-like brush at the other. It also houses a handy mirror.
Which is all well and lovely, but I’m afraid Benefit Foolproof Brow just didn’t do the biz for me and my sparse brows. Using the 01 colourway (it comes in three), I found that the light shade was far too pale and added nothing to my brows, while the applicator didn’t allow me to create the effect of little brow hairs; just solid shapes or lines.
Put it this way: if you’re looking for a natural boost for the eyebrows, try ka-BROW! instead ..
