ok i LOVE this. i wandered over to the benefit counter cause the clinique girl had put wayyyy too much makeup on me and i wanted to get it off without hurting her feelings. anyway, once i got it off, the benefit girl told me that i really only needed one product: high brow!
its a pinkish cream stick, basically. you apply it directly under your eyebrow and blend it in (downward, not up into your brow). it INSTANTLY perks up the look of your eyebrows! they look playful and your eyes look brighter. its also amazing on its-time-to-wax days because for some reason your eyebrows look cleaner and not as scraggly! needless to say i love it. i did balk a little at the price, $20 is excessive for basically a jumbo eyeliner, but i couldnt stop looking at my eyebrows all day so i had to go back and byu it. im unsure if ill repurchase if i ever run out though.
for reference, im an NC25, adn ive used it on my sister (NC30) and cousin (NC42) and it looks amazing on all of us!
I like this product. I have very pale skin and it still works on me. Some reviewers have complained that it's hard to sharpen, but I just use a regular old metal pencil sharpener for regular pencils (the kind with two differently sized holes). It definitely brings attention to my eye area and makes my eyes seem a bit bigger and brighter. I like that it's completely matt. It's quite expensive though, so I'm not sure if I will replace it when it's gone. I've been using it every day for 2.5 months now and I've only had to sharpen it twice.
I like this product but I am mixed on it. It provides a great lift for my brows, but sometimes I find the color too pink when I'm tan in the summer. However, in the winter this is great.
I also was frustrated with the size of this pencil. It is not a standard size and in order to sharpen it you must get a BeneFit sharpener with an insert. This product is also meant to be used with well kept brows. I think it would be silly to use of one's brows haven't been done for sometime. It pairs well with brow zings.
I got this for around $14 at Sephora after seeing Damone, the makeup artist from "10 Years Younger" apply a thick pencil highlighter under the brow to give the brow a "lift". I have low brows and this is exactly what I needed. It is a weekend only product for me, but I really like it. Just a swipe under each brow and then blend it in with your finger. I looked at drugstores, Walmart, couldn't find any similar product. Although it is a pencil, the coverage is very good and it will last me for years.
I expected a little more out of this product probably because of the before and after pictures I saw. I normally use light concealer to go under my brow and I will have to say that this works much better than that so I definitely would purchase this product again. The only thing I hate is the pencil. I wish it came in a form that didn't need to be sharpened. It's a waste of product.
This is a staple for me. I apply it underneath my eye brow and lightly blend it in. It does make me look more awake and gives my brows a "lift" persay. I also love the fact that it works well as a "base" for my under the brow e/s highlighter. It brings out the highlight of the e/s and helps the e/s to stick. Love it! I have had mine for almost a year now, and plan to repurchase once I run out. It's true that product is lost when sharpening, but I let it go to the point where I absolutely need to sharpen it ;) Highly recommended!
This was not what I had hoped it would be. The pencil smudges too easily, so I had to keep sharpening it (therefore Im wasting product, smh). Any light shadow works just as effective so I'll keep using that, and I'm definately returning this!
So I needed a break from shimmery eye highlighters and this is perfect, its a light pinkish skin color and instantly lifts and brightens the brow area. a little goes a long way, and right now Im sticking to shimmer on my cheek bones and a little on my eye lids for a natural not overdone look, this makes my eyes look polished and fresh. :)
UPDATE: Ok its summer now and i have a bit of a tan, and this looks really off and too bright, will only use in the wintertime when im much paler. ITs much too light and pink for my summer peachy golden skin!
WINTER ONLY PRODUCT FOR MOI.
I used to always use a pale shimmery eyeshadow or a liquid highlighter like High Beam as a brow highlighter, but since I got this wonder pencil they've been languishing in my makeup drawer. Not only is High Brow a lovely subtle highlighter (I don't think I will ever do a shimmery highlighter for day after using this) for my brow bone, but it also makes my brows look more defined and groomed.
It's a no-brainer to use - just a swipe under each brow and lightly blend. Resist the temptation to overblend, otherwise it will lose it's best effect.
I use this everyday. Just the tiniest swipe underneath the arch of my brow to highlight and create the illusion of extra lift. It also helps keep the undereye area looking a bit cleaner when I get a bit lazy and allow some strays to come in. In all honesty, if I looked hard enough, I could probably find some cheap concealer or thick foundation a few shades lighter that would probably create the same effect. However, this is nice if you light to keep your brows extra sharp looking, since they really do make a difference in the overall appearance of your face.
