FREE Benefit Brow Pencil

Free Benefit Goof Proof Brow PencilIf you’re a beauty lover and haven’t been living under a rock the past couple of weeks, then I’m sure you would have heard something about Benefit’s new brow range. The brand have released a stunning 9 different brow products including a brow primer and different types of brow pencils to prep, fill and sleek your brows into perfection. To add to the excitement of the new launches, this month you can try out one of the products for yourself absolutely FREE with Elle Magazine; the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil.

Before you go running to your nearest newsagent, there is one thing to bare in mind, Benefit are giving away Goof Proof Brow Pencils in all six shades – but unfortunately you cannot tell what shade you’ll get until you unwrap your magazine when you get home – major downside! I took the chance and ended up with the shade 02 Light which wouldn’t have been the first shade I’d have picked given the choice, but I am able to make it work.

Elle are giving away what is, of course, a sample size of the product, but you actually get a good amount of product, probably enough to last a month of everyday use, and it is long enough to use as normal (not like those horrible mini They’re Real! Push Up Liners last year – does anyone remember how tiny they were?). The full size product comes with a spoolie brush on the opposite end to the twist up pencil, is a little fatter and with more product. But as samples go, this is a pretty good one!

I was excited to try out the formula of this product, as it is completely new to Benefit’s range. I found the angled, twist up pencil was hard enough to get a very precise, professional application. The slanted nib allows you to create fine, hair-like strokes to fill in sparse areas in a very detailed way, as well as allowing you to brush the full width of the nib through your brows quickly to beef them up when you’re in a rush.

I found the application to be very quick, smooth and easy to control. The Goof Proof Brow Pencil reminds me a lot of the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in it’s angle, colour pigmentation and application. It did, however last a lot longer than the Hourglass pencil. Benefit say this product has a 12 hour waterproof formula, and whilst I’m not 100% sure on the waterproofness of this product (if you can believe it, it hasn’t rained near me in a long time), I can say that it passed the 12 hour point on my eyebrows the other day when I wore it to London. When I finally got home, fourteen hours after application, there was definitely some pigment still hanging around.

    I’ve been looking for a new brow pencil for ages now, so maybe I’ll give this a try! It looks great in these photos and the shade matches so perfectly. I actually had no idea they were giving it away through Elle, so thank you for this post!

  • I think I will risk it and buy one, hoping it would be one of the darkest shades! I received an email from Boots saying they’re giving away the travel size of these brow products, all you need to do it go to the store and pick whichever you want to try out:) x

  • I love this packaging! Sucks that you can’t tell what shade you have when purchasing the magazine
    Kathy x

  • This looks and sounds great but having blonde hair it’s unlikely I’d be lucky with the shade :( xx

    Its a shame you can’t tell which shade, but if you are buying the magazine anyway, whatever one you get is a bonus! Your brows look wonderful, and I could certainly test the waterproof, it has done nothing but rain here all week.

  • Wendy K

    This sounds like a great giveaway, and I’d risk the shade as I love the element of surprise. Live life on the edge, lol! :-)

  • I’m definitely going to have to try this – a shame you don’t get to choose your shade of course.

  • Leanne Dolan

    I love the new packaging of the benefit brow products. I think the shade may be okay for me, but I can see how it would be a problem for someone with lighter hair!

  • I am going to buy this and give it a go, I have never used a brow pencil before but have often thought about trying one x

  • Jenni Grainger

    I’ve never used brow makeup at home but I always have it applied at the salon after threading and really like it so I might give this a try x

  • I love benefit products, I might invest in one rather than get it from the magazine as you can’t tell what shade you get!

  • I might have to grab one of these just to see the formula and hope I get the right shade. Such a good introduction to the product x

  • I love when benefit do freebies. Ive also got a sample of this to try!

  • Oh this looks great, and I know you said it wouldn’t have been your shade of choice but it looks fab on you. How frustrating you can’t see the colours before buying the magazine, but it’s still worth buying ;)

  • Beautyqueenuk

    I am a big fan of this as it is so easy to easy and I managed to get the right shade x

  • I need to check this product out. Not tried it but love the sound of it. Looks great on you.

  • kitty kaos

    Oooo I didn’t see this but I am popping to the newsagent tomorrow to pick up another glamour so may grab one of these too xx

  • This is very interesting! Absolutely understand what you mean about risking it but for someone like me with absolutely no idea of how to work a brow product this is quite a good deal! Thanks so much for the heads up!

  • Melanie Edjourian

    I looks great and you applied it well, I hate it when they over do it with an eyebrow pencil.

  • I might try my luck and grab an Elle, if I can find it that is… Nowhere round here sells it or only gets in 1 copy! Your brows look great! x

  • Hannah Heartss ❄️⛄️

    I am on the fence about this – I love how it makes my brows look but it doesn’t stay on for long

  • Things Sarah Loves

    I haven’t tried this yet. I’m obsessed with my Anastasia Brow Wiz so I’m keen to see if this is as good.

  • Jessica

    Honestly not using any brow pencil but I do love these shades.

  • This looks so interesting, I’ve never seen a pencil that shape before! Bit irritating that you can’t tell what colour you’re getting.

  • Oooh, fab! I’ve been wanting to try that and it looks great on you so I’m off to get Elle today. Bit of a pain that you can’t tell the shade, I’ll just have to keep my fingers crossed…

  • That looks like a great eye pencil, love the packaging too.

  • I’ve seen mixed reviews of this, some even saying don’t bother buying Elle for it. You’re rocking it though!

  • I have not tried this brow pencil but looks like I need it in my stash, lovely post.
