I'll start with the dislikes:
bulky packaging, tweezers are unnecessary, limited shades (L,M,D - that's how the foundation is too though, just a few shades to choose from), expensive!
good lasting power, fills in the gaps, great for elongating brows if you got a bad brow job, easy how to instructions included
NOTE: I noticed that I have to wear more make up when I use this. With just eyeliner and brow zings I look hard. I absolutely have to soften my features with blush and a natural lipstick - with the extra few steps I looked super dolled up (it's a plus but also a minus because it's more work, time, product)
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Other Eyes: Grey
I have very fine, fair eyebrows and I colour my hair to be a very dark brown so it's pretty much essential that I fill in my brows. For years I used pencils, (in particular the MAC one which is amazing) but I found that they simply didn't last long enough and I was buying a new one every two months which I couldn't afford.
A friend recommended Brow-zings to me because it just seems to last forever. I bought mine nearly 6 months ago and there is still so much product left, it looks as though it may last another 12-15 months. The woman who served me at the Benefit counter told me that she'd had her Brow-zing palette for over a year and still had plenty left.
It stays on all day and the wax keeps the hairs in place, I also find that the effect is less harsh than that of a pencil as the powder is quite soft and natural-looking.
I never usually buy anything from Benefit as I've always been put off by the packaging but this compact is beautifully designed and is very sophisticated, unlike most nasty tacky-looking Benefit products. I've also always found their products to be quite over-priced and at £23.50 this may SEEM to be quite steep but it is absolutely worth it as it will last and last and you'll just be saving money in the long run.
Although I'm not a big fan of the tweezers (though they have come in handy once or twice) I can't really fault this product and it's one of my absolute favourite beauty buys!

I love this! It's wonderful, so buy it!
But! Keep in mind a couple of things:
The brushes heads are wonderful but the size they come in can be very inconvenient but you can get used to them like I did after a while.
The powder and wax give off weird crayon-like smells. So weird. The wax is sheer and is a nice tint. The powder is more pigmented--I use it as a shadow-liner using the angled brush.
There's a LOT of product, the palette is really deeper than it looks--can be used every day and will last you a very long time (Like maybe a year if you don't use a lot of product like me).
The only thing I regret when I was buying this was getting the shade dark (they didn't have medium in stock that day) which also works for me but gives me wormy brows when I haphazardly apply it compared to say if I waited it out and got the medium shade, it's not as obvious.
Forget about using the tweezers.
I wish they would make a refill/refillable compact because it's a waste to throw out the brushes/compact.

This my to go to product for my brows, I have really bad eyebrows, they have almost no color at all and this product just makes them look fabulous!

Needs a "MAC" touch
I like the fact this product comes packed with essentials! The two brushes, especially the angled one are amazingly good. Very similar to professional brushes but in mini, the how to guide included is also very very good idea. I use medium shade, but do not like the finishing powder colour in the set, gives my brows a ginger tinge so I just use was, I feel it's enough though. I think they should do refill packs like MAC do though, you don't need new brushes, tweezers and the mirror each time you buy, it makes it kinda pricey too. Does last all day though :)

love this gel or wax in medium - with the tools these are so easy to apply and last all day long!

I don't really need this for everyday, my eyebrows are pretty dark and full as they are. I only use this for special occasions when I want to give my brows drama and that's were I find this product to be amazing. I use only a little of the powder and it goes a long long way in defining my eyebrows and making them look sharp and perfect. Thanks Benefit xox

I use this everyday and have done for over a year! Cannot go a day without this! Amazing and natural look! Only thing is I don't use the brush... I use the bare minerals eyebrow brush as its firmer! Expensive but lasts forever! Worth every penny! I can only comment on the medium shade as this is all I use!

I'm giving this a 3 because I think it's a great concept/design, but for me it did not work out so I would not buy again. Background: I have VERY thick dark brown brows I have left them naturally thick and tweeze stray hairs because I find it to be more youthful/flattering. I have spaces in my brows that make them uneven, so this is why I bought browzings. I really like the wax/powder combo and I think the quality of these two is great. If you have dark brown eyebrows like me I would recommend medium unless you want darker brows,then you should go for dark. My main issue is that I learned after purchasing this that powder/wax makes my eyebrows wayyy to thick and noticeable. Even just using a little bit. I will stick with my MAC spiked eyebrow pencil to fill in gaps and some hairspray on a toothbrush to keep them in place. It's cheaper, and for someone like me who has naturally thick eyebrows, browzings is probably too harsh looking.

I'm on my second pallet of this stuff, it's easy to apply and sits well on the skin. I love it as it lasts all day and keeps my brows in shape. I have naturally very like brows (practically invisible) so my shade is fair, it's really the perfect shade; not too dark so I look trashy but still noticeable!
I would defiantly recommend this product!

I love the combination of wax and powder as it creates natural looking brows unlike brow pencils. My brows look groomed and defined all day. The kit lasts for years. I have an issue with the angled brush though. It gets easily clumped with wax and I have to wash it every two or three days. Also, the tweezers are useless. I wish they take it out of the kit to cut the cost so we could get it for less.
I don't know if I would buy this again but I still want to try other wax/powder brow kits out there before I could say that I'm satisfied.

Great product! I use this when I want to go for the thick brow look and it works great. Its worth the buy because it gives you a natural look if you want or a more dramatic look. The best thing about this product is that it doesnt smudge and you can accidentally sleep in it and you won't see it all over your pillow case the next morning. Its worth the buy and it lasts forever.

The wax & the powder have nice texture. I used mostly the wax, and then a little powder on top. Nice color selection.
However, the wax does get messy after a while as you can imagine.

I love this product but the pricetag is off-putting for me! I can almost achieve the same effect with a plain pencil and shadow.
I do love the highly preened look these give your brows, they look neat and polished.
Will be re-purchasing again I think!
I bought this again because I ended up loving this product! The light colour isn't light enough for my hair now that I've gone blonde. Hoping to try the Smashbox version.

This product never fails to make my eyebrows look amazing. I get countless comments on how beautifully shaped and dark my eyebrows are and it's all thanks to this stuff. Definitely a staple for me.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Normal, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I've been trying this product out for about a month now. It stays on really well, even with pouring rain. My whole makeup rained off my face but my brows were still there.
I will definetely buy this product again
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Olive Hair: Brown, Straight, Coarse Eyes: Brown
I am pretty pleased with this product. The wax fills out your eyebrow really well and the powder helps set the wax in, giving the eyebrow more filling/shape. I then use a old mascara brush to brush it out, getting the perfect eyebrow for me. It stays on for hours and so I don't need to worry about them during the day, no matter how busy I am. However, It did take me some time to get it right (I had a session on my eyebrows) as sometimes I put too much wax on or brushed it to far. Eventually I got it right, and now I can't live without it!
The only thing I don't like about this product is that the inside gets covered in wax and powder easily, making it messy.
Overall worth buying and recommended for some great eyebrows!

This is quite good, although I found it too brown for my black hair. When I'm being lazy I can just use the wax on its own or the powder because they work well like this too. You don't need much so it''ll last a long time. The staying power is pretty good too. I wouldn't buy this again only because Suqqu's eyebrown pen is more water resistant and is a better colour match for me.

I've had this for almost 2 years, used it almost every day and still have plenty left! Can't live without it! Have it in medium and it is the perfect shade for my brows. I have blond hair naturally (but color both my hair and my eyebrows), and the wax put them in place and fills them out. I get compliments on my brows constantly, and love a full natural brow.
I've had this for so long that all the pretty artwork is all gone.. I should probably buy a new one before this turns old, and wil repurchase it again and again and again!

This is a good brow-fill product. I've used several different brands. The key for me was to figure out how to dab into each color and do light short dashes to fill in. When I first got it I would get too much color and make my fill-in strokes a little to long or too dark. It just takes a bit of practice. Oh and a good spooly (blending blush) -- at the end just give your brows a light stroke or two to blend the colors together and smooth the hairs down. I never used the tweezers. I bought this kit months ago and have only used a tiny bit (though I use it daily). It will last a year at this rate.
