When it comes to testing the latest brow products, you got me. I’ll try anything and everything new to make my bushy beloveds look their very best.
So imagine my joy when I heard the news that Benefit was expanding the ‘Precisely, My Brow’ range with two new products.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better than the original best-seller and number one brow product in the UK – the Precisely, My Brow Pencil has got two new sisters joining the gang.
Starting with the Precisely, My Brow Detailer (£22.50 with six shades to choose from), it’s incredibly fine (and probably the thinnest brow pencil I’ve ever used before). It actually reminded me of those wind-up pencils I had back at school.
I probably should have read the instructions before using as you’re only meant to twist it to the clear part – nothing more. Obviously I went gung-ho and heavy handed AF – causing it to break off a few times.
Once I got the hang of it though, it’s incredible at recreating actual ‘hair like’ strokes, which is perfect for those of you out there with gaps or thinning ends – which I find I can sometimes lack. It’s also perfect for making the front of your brows appear ‘fuller’ too.
Precisely, My Brow Detailer
Treat and use this pencil with CAUTION! A little goes a long way and it’s great for creating ‘hair like’ definition.
The other product and probably my favourite of the new launches is the Precisely, My Brow Wax. If you love the Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel, then you’ll love this.
Priced at £26 and available in 12 shades, it perfectly sculpted and held my brows in place all night long. Packed with pigment and colour rich, there are two sides of the brush – giving you the chance to manipulate them how you like.
Benefit advise to ‘brush through brows with short, upward strokes using flat side of applicator. Sculpt with domed side’ – and I have to agree.
In fact, on the days you really need to just get out the door? This bad boy does it all – and as you can see from the pictures, my brows even appear fuller than ever.
Not to mention, there’s up to 12 hours of wear – which is needed when it comes to my active lifestyle.
Precisely, My Brow Wax
I’m literally obsessed with this – it packs a punch of pigment into my brows, keeps them in place all day and defines the shape all at once.
My verdict on the Precisely, My Brow products?
It’s going to take a lot for me to swap out the Precisely, My Brow Pencil – but those lacking hairs will love it as you can almost recreate a ‘microblade’ appearance.
As for the Precisely, My Brow Wax? I’m sold. It’s literally an all rounded and my brows look like they’ve been freshly tinted, without looking overdone.
Need help finding the perfect shade or extra advice? Lauren Hogsden, Content Creator and National Brow Artist for Benefit Benefit Cosmetics has shared her wisdom for us.
- Select a shade that matches your natural hair colour or is slightly lighter for a softer and more natural look.
- Use a spoolie brush to blend and soften any harsh application for colour.
- Apply your brow products with a heavy hand, use a light touch to build brow colour gradually.
Lauren also says: ‘Determine your desired brow shape by mapping out your brows from start, arch to end. It’s often best to work with your natural brow shape. This will help guide your grooming process and prevent you from removing brow hair that is needed to build your desired brow look.’
BRB as I now going to stare at how great my brows now look.
