Rated 4.84 out of 5 stars
These products were gifted by Benefit Cosmetics. Having taken the time to fully test both the brow powder and the dual ended brow brush I have a few thoughts. I'll start with the powder. Overall, I felt that the formula was pretty standard. It's pigmented, long lasting, somewhat easy to put on with the brush. I also like the idea of the refillable component. My biggest issue was the color. I have red hair and the color I selected was 03 Warm Brown. When a color has the descriptor warm in the name I am thinking okay this is going to match the warmth of my hair, however this color was truly neutral. Not good or bad, just not the most ideal color match for me. Someone of a different hair color will love it though I'm sure! Secondly, the brush. Overall the design of it is great, feels really secure in the hand. I love a good spoolie and this one's nice! I just felt the brush could have had more firm and less tapered bristles. Any brow brush that's good is going to be able to "grip" the product nicely. I felt like this brush would make a better angled eyeliner brush than brow brush. Overall not bad, I'll still use them, but I wouldn't say that I would replace the brow powder and brush I was using before with these. Hope this helps!
I thought the product itself was fine, not my favorite. It is definitely not smudge proof I will say that. My main issue is the color. I have black hair and I always go for a neutral deep brown brow products, so naturally I got shade 4.5. In more deem lighting it does match really well, but in brighter lights it makes my brows look light auburn.

This is my first time trying this particular product. I am so impressed with the ease of use and results. I have very light brows, they are there but hard to see, so this not only looks natural rather than pasted on, but wears well also.

I'm not really a brow powder user but the product looks great and fills in nicely

The lady at the in store brow bar introduced me to this powder. I'm hooked. So easy to apply and not mess up! Using one of those angled brow/liner brushes. Gives the most natural look. Highly recommend if you've been struggling with pencils. I recommend using just a tap or 2 of the brush and starting the fill at the the bottom of the brow , fill in the middle and ends and just super lightly use towards the nose.

I found you only had to use a little powder at a time which makes it last awhile. It's easy to remove before bed and lasts all day!

Found a narrow brush to apply at home. The brow stencils were out. Bummer

I have sparse, pale brows. This is so easy to use. It fills my brows in quickly and they look natural. I have the Cool Light Blond, which looks like light neutral brown on me. I could not be happier.

I just received my powder yesterday. I ordered the Cool light blonde 1. The color I got looks much darker that the color on the site . I chose this color because my hair has gone white these past yrs and my brows were looking too dark....Also no brush is included....I preferred my original "Foolproof brow powder" but in the lighter shade mine is going on 2 yrs !! Please adjust the color on your site ...Thank you

This product is very pigmented and easy to apply. You also get a good amount of it.
There are 2 reasons I cannot give this 5 stars. The first reason is because I wish there were 2 tones of color like the Anastasia brow powder. I prefer more of an ombre effect and I would rather not purchase 2 different colors as that is a bit expensive. The second reason is you definitely need to use some type of primer with this, otherwise it smudges away very easily.
Otherwise, very nice product and I'm glad Benefit came our with individual brow powders.

I love this brow powder its really buildable if you want darker brows and its super blendable. I always get brow powders since my eyebrows are very light and i hate using eyebrow pencils. Its super easy to use. The only "bad thing" is that i thought the product was bigger but its small.
Maddy from Houston, TX
I use this daily, sometimes i use the gel to keep in place if my hair is a little grown out between threading. I use it when my eyebrow tint is fading and it blends perfectly and makes eyebrows look fuller and more defined.

This really helps me carve out my brows while also filling them in nicely. It blends out really well.

I was excited to finally find a brow powder in black. I wear a lot of black eyeliner and have black hair, so brown powders don't look right. Online the "soft black" looked black, but when I went to use it, it looks way more brown than black. I tried it on, and it just doesn't work for me since it is definitely brown, so it was disappointing!

I like it because it does stay in place. I need a little more time to work with it so it will look more natural. I use it inside the "Precisely My Brow" outline.
Bri from Las Vegas, NV
I'm so glad they finally came out with single powders. I originally used brow zings and then the old goof proof powder that was in the shape of an eyebrow. Then they got rid of both of those a few years ago and my only option was the massive brow zings palette. I have a pretty basic eyebrow routine, so I only really needed one of the powders in that palette and it was such a huge waste. This is so much more convenient and easier to travel with, and it's a lot less wasteful!

I was pleasantly surprised with this product! Super easy to use and buildable. I love that it stays on even after a work out or the beach. It's my go to product now.
Krystal from Fontana, CA
I absolutely loved this brow powder. I use it to set my pomade and it works amazing. I also like using it to fill my brows for a more natural look. It can be used for a definition brow as well as a natural brow.

I can attest that this powder is the da bomb. two days in a row I went to a trampoline place where I jumped for 2 hours pouring sweat and my eyebrows stayed on. I can't say they would last if I went swimming but whose really worried about having eyebrows when they are enjoying a lake or swimming pool😀 over all I would recommend this product for rainy days or if you naturally sweat alot..

Color is too dark and does not go on evenly.

Amazing, I am not the best at applying eyebrow products but this is so easy to apply < 3 love how fluffy and filled my brows look. definitely recommend this!!
Hippimom from Pennsylvania
This powder goes on nicely and fills in beautifully. The only thing it is a bit darker than the color example on the box and website, but still very very nice.
Trailgurl from Pennsylvania
The powder works very well and is easy to use with the Spoolie brush. Only complaint is that I bought 2 shades now and they both look the same and are too dark. I think they were warm medium and warm light brown. Both look really dark brown to me.
ecd17 from Dallas, TX
I'm pretty surprised by this brow product with how much I like it. It definitely takes some practice to figure out how to best apply based on your brows but I like that it doesn't seem to weigh down my brows. It still leaves them fluffy looking while filled in. gifted by benefitcosmetics
veegee from NYC
Such an amazing duo, the perfect brush applies well and so easy to use. The color match worked well, and definitely lasted throughout the day even in warm humid weather. I love how well the brush applied on my thin brows. Gifted by Benefit Cosmetics

Bobbi Brown gifted me this lip balm and it's pretty nice! I chose Bare Pink shade and the tint is more subtle than expected, you can't see it on the lips. It's very nice, adds glossy effect to my lips, keeps them soft and moisturized. Id buy it again, but in a pinker shade!
