Freebies from Benefit Cosmetics
Hello lovelies and happy Tuesday! I'm so thankful to have two days off in a row from work. I swear, even when I'm not working, I'm still playing with all things beauty. A few weeks ago, I was given a heads up we would be launching a bunch of new products from Benefit Cosmetics. I was pretty familiar with the line, seeing as I had previously trained with that line at Ulta. I was pumped that they were putting out new products, and more excited because they created an entire new brow line. Benefit always puts out amazing makeup products, so I was stoked to see more from them. Last week we also had a special event for Beauty Insiders, showcasing the new products and teaching clients to master the art of bold brows. I was also given a special card from the company, that was good for two of their new brow products. When I received this special gift I was super excited- more makeup freebies to try! Read below to see what I received from Benefit Cosmetics!
When I opened up the cute white & pink box that was on my door step yesterday, this is what I received. But really, how cute is this packaging? Super retro and girly, I love it! Benefit always has the most quirky packaging and I can't get enough of it. I love that Sephora and all of the amazing brands we carry encourage us to branch out and try new products. I love getting the chance to play with new products and learn a thing or two about new brands. Here's the scoop on the new brow products I received:
Goof Proof Brow Pencil
Before coming to Sephora, I wont lie, I never did my brows! I swear, up until three-ish years ago brows just started to become the new beauty trend. No one filled in their brows, or gave them a second look until now. Now that I've seen what filling my brows in with just a tiny bit of powder can do, I'm officially hooked. Brows frame your face, and when shaped, make a huge difference! When I first received this pencil, I was excited to switch up my brow routine. This is called the "Goof Proof Brow Pencil" perfect for anyone who has NO IDEA what they're doing! To be completely honest, I shape my own brows, and have fullness, so I refrain from filling them in. I'm after a "all natural" type of look, so I never go overboard with my brows. What this pencil is, is the easiest and full proof way to fuller brows, instantly. It's called "Goof Proof" for a reason, it's super easy, and anyone can become a brow expert. It's a tear drop shape brow pencil that makes defining and filling super easy. I use the very tip of the pencil to lightly define my brow, and the flat edge to fill. Like I said, I already have full brows, so I barely have to fill or define my brow, but this pencil takes my brows to a whole new level. More defined and polished brows make a world of a difference on anyones face. If you're looking to define your brows a little more, without confusion, you need to try the Goof Proof pencil!
Ka-Brow! Eyebrow Cream-Gel Color
When I was picking out two products from Benefits new brow line, I wanted to go out of my comfort zone. I wanted to try something different, something I wouldn't ordinarily pick out. Like I said before, I'm a newbie when it comes to brows. I feel like a perfectly shaped brow is already just enough. When I saw what a more defined, polished brow can do for the face, I jumped on the "bold brows" train. I only use my Anastasia Beverly Hills powder to lightly fill my brows, for a more natural look on a day to day basis. Working at Sephora, we are encouraged to try new products, and techniques, so I knew by ordering this product, I would be stepping outside of my comfort zone. I ordered the "Ka-Brow Eyebrow Cream-Gel Color" which is a brow pomade, something I had never tried before. Brow pomade is typically used by people that want to seriously line, define and fill in their brows Brow pomade is the preferred method for those who have absent, or shapeless brows. Having fuller brows, I never thought I could use this product. To be completely honest, I was also afraid of trying this type of product. You have to have a very steady hand to use brow pomade, as you are truly sculpting out your brows. What I love about this product is that it's super creamy, and goes on super smooth. This gel also comes with a built in brush, and allows for smooth, easy application. This product can build natural, to dramatic brows, depending on how much pressure you use. I also had no idea that this formula is waterproof, and wearable up to 24 hours - how insane is that? I love that on Benefits website I can get tips and tricks on how to use this product. If it weren't for Benefit, I wouldn't have known how to use a brow pomade! I'm excited to be trying out Benefits new brow line and I'm super happy with the results!
What do you use to get perfectly sculpted brows? Have you tried any of Benefits new brow products? What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear!
