Hello my lovely readers, today I’m back with a review on a new product in my stash that has rocked my world: the Benefit Ka-BROW! eyebrow cream-gel color. This is a very hot summer so I can’t stand much make-up on my face so I do a very minimal make-up look with mascara, a brow product (if I feel the need), a creamy brush and highlighter and a lip product (usually a gloss, or a lighter lipstick). And that’s it!
It is a known fact that a good brow changes for the better a make-up look so taking care of the look of your brows is a must. Besides a good grooming, a good brow product can do magic! In the hotter summer months I really want a good long-lasting brow product that doesn’t melt away and does my brows justice. And I think I found it.
The Benefit Ka-BROW! is a highly pigmented, waterproof cream-gel brow color that can easily creates natural-looking to dramatic brows. It is an all-in-one cream-gel formula with a built-in brush that easily shapes, fills, and defines your eyebrows. The buildable, 24-hour wear, smudge-proof color creates brow looks from a discrete day time look to a bold night time look. The cap transforms into a full length brush for extra precision and effortless application by pulling the brush out of the cap, flipping it around and snapping it back in.
My shade is no.3 and it comes in a 3 gr. pot with a tightening cap. By twisting the cap’s top you discover a slanted brow brush that makes the application precise and easy (and it is very travel-friendly, easy to take in a bag or on holidays for touch-ups, I love it!).
The shade suits me and it is very easy to use and buildable. For a discrete brow look use sparingly , it is quite pigmented and a light hand will take you a long way. For a bolder, stronger brow look build the layers. The slanted brow brush is very useful and complements perfectly the product. I don’t need another brush to use with this gel, this brush is hard enough to create a precise shape and its slanted shape makes it easy to draw little brow hairs in the brow gaps.
Tips for use : To add extra dimension to Ka-BROW!, let the cream-gel dry completely, then layer 3D Browtones Subtle Brow-Enhancing Highlights (sold separately) on top. Be careful to not let the product too much without the cap, it will dry out too fast.
I like a discrete brow look and since I am lucky to have decent brows, I don’t have to use a lot of product to achieve the desired effect. After application, let the gel dry and set. It will not budge all day even in the hot summer time, until the evening when it can be removed with a make-up remover (I like to use an oil-based one to make sure it cleanses all the product off my brows). I love this product the most from the entire brow collection from Benefit. It is easy to use, very travel-friendly, water-proof and long-lasting and a little goes a long way (economical too).
As you can see above, there is a definite improvement in the look of my brows and what I like most is the fact that the brows look pretty natural and not overly made-up.
You can find the entire brow collection by Benefit in all Sephora stores and online at the price of aprox. 129 ron/ 24 dollars.
All in all, I can say that I adore the Benefit Ka-BROW! Especially in the summer time when all my make-up tends to melt away and disappears in a few hours. I love its staying power and water-proof quality (since I sweat during the summer and I blot a lot, rest assured this brow product hasn’t gone anywhere!). It is compact and easy to use and travel with. Due to its very good pigmentation it will last me a very long time, making it quite economical (yes it is not a cheap product but its great quality and long use makes it worth it). The magical Benefit Ka-BROW! gets an A+ from me! I’ll be back very soon with reviews on other several brow products from Benefit which are in tests right now. So stay tuned!Tell me Have you tried any of the Benefit brow products? What are your favourites? Until next time, Love, M
