Benefit Cosmetics is known to house some of the best brow products available, from its OG best-selling Precisely, My Brow Pencil to its Gimme Brow gel. Each new drop from the company delivers on sculpted, envious brows, giving those of us with the sparsest hairs a chance at faking full ones. Though it seemed like the brow experts had just about done it all, they went ahead and released their latest crowd pleaser: the Brow Styler Eyebrow Pencil and Powder Duo.
As the name suggests, the multi-tasking dual-ended product features both a wax pencil and a powder felt tip, allowing you three different options to play with. Use the wax pencil to sculpt and define, following up with the powder to fill in bare spots, or use each alone depending on your preferred brow look; chiseled and intense or soft and natural. Either way you apply it, the waterproof product lasts up to 18 hours and is available in 12 different shades. From auburn to cool grey, there is a color that works for just about everyone.
The Brow Styler has quickly become my go-to product for faking full, fluffy brows that I’ve never naturally had. I start with the wax pencil in small, quick flicks for added definition before lightly sweeping on the powder to complete my look. Since the pencil side is not your typical point tip, drawing realistic-looking, clean brow hairs is fairly easy. The powder side has a flat-angled applicator for a mess-free application, but it is quite pigmented, so I’d recommend starting slow.
With over 11,900 hearts and over 400 five-star reviews, I’m not the only one who feels it's a holy-grail makeup product. “Love this product! Only takes two minutes to do my brows now,” writes one shopper. “So easy to use! My eyebrows are sparse so I love that I can do a natural brow, an ombré-style brow, and a really dark and defined brow. I love to travel with it as well because I don’t have to carry a whole kit and brushes. It lasts for a whole day and never looks oily or shiny.” says another.
If, like me, you’ve never been skilled at doing your brows, the Benefit Brow Styler Eyebrow Pencil and Powder Duo might just be your saving grace, too. You can shop better brow days at Sephora today for $34.
