As most of you know and could probably relate, eyebrows can be the trickiest part of the face to master. It took me years to finally settle on a style that flatters my face but with lots of mishaps in between.
Remember the blocky Instagram eyebrow trend? Yea, I tried that and I just looked mad, like I was pissed off with life but with thick, one dimension eyebrows like that, who wouldn’t be? Thankfully the trend only lasted a year or two (it felt longer than that tbh…) and then most of us wised up and embraced natural and fluffy eyebrows. Eyebrows finally look like eyebrows again and with textures and proper colours.
I am most excited for 24-HR Brow Setter* which is a clear brow gel that promises to shape, sets and locks brow colour for 24 hours. Personally, I don’t recommend anyone to wear any sort of makeup for 24 hours but if you need a brow gel that truly holds then this is a good one to try. My eyebrows stayed put from 7:30am until 8:00pm when I finally removed my makeup. The wand is an interesting one, it’s similar to mascara which I thought was odd but it combs through my eyebrows easily with the perfect amount of product. I do suggest using only a little amount as my eyebrows felt a little stiff and crunchy when I applied too much.
As much as I love Benefit brow products, I hope the brand will work towards inclusivity in the near future. Having only 12 shades for their foundation is honestly quite shameful but the brand has made a commitment to be and do better to amplify Black voices and empower Black lives. I am not one who supports cancel culture and am a firm believer in second chances so I look forward to the changes Benefit brings.
