Benefit High Brow

Our brows need a lot of maintenance, but we don’t always have the time to schedule in regular tweezing, waxing, or threading sessions. In between appointments, we keep our arches looking polished with Benefit’s best selling High Brow. This soft pink-toned pencil conceals any stray hairs while defining brows and illuminating the entire eye area. Tip: you can also dab a bit into the inner corner of your eyes to look wide awake.

Fake it til you make it

I use it on those mornings after taking call for the hospital. I put it on the lower rim of my eyes and the inside corners. Definitely makes me look more awake!

Eye opener
Purchased

I love the way this pencil makes my eyes look bright and open. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I find that I have to blend and blend to get it to look natural. But the results are beautiful. Another staple in my makeup arsenal.

Good for brightening!
Purchased

I bought this product using Birchbox points, and I have absolutely no regrets. I was nervous at first that the pinky tone of the product wouldn't blend with my skin, but it looks great on me (and my mother!). It does a great job and brightening under the brow. I didn't notice any concealment of stray hairs like the description says, but I'll have to pay more attention to that aspect as I wear it more. Overall, I'm very pleased!

Good but Needs a Brush
Purchased

I had a Benefit pencil once that the Benefit saleswoman called a "nap in a stick". It was a pencil that looks very much like this, and was great for creating an "awake" look. The pencil went on smooth and was easy to blend. I can't find that pencil any longer, but I was hopeful that I'd get something close with this. It's pretty good, and it does help hide some of those errant brow hairs. But, for the other uses, I have to blend it pretty severely with a brush. It works well enough to keep using, but I don't think I'll be rebuying this one.

Just a touch more color than I wanted!
Purchased

This lovely pencil delivers just the touch of color that I want on my brow and in the inner corner (fovea) of my eye. It's such a nice soft pencil, I enjoy using it instead of some others that are more pigmented and a harder consistency that would NOT work in my fovea, because only the soft application works to make me look more awake without pulling my skin to cause more wrinkles. As for covering my brow hairs, I have them waxed by my hair stylist every other visit or eight weeks. I have very short hair so in a matter of two minutes she has my brows perfect and the best trick of all is she dyes them to match my hair so no need for colored pencils for my eyebrows!

What A Find!
Purchased

I saw a video on birchbox showing how to use this magic stick. I fell in love. It quickly became a daily staple in my make up bag. Even if you always have perfectly groomed brows, this works great as a highlighter for your brow arch.

Great except...

This really does highlight your brow bone and I like to use it for the inner corners of my eyes as well.

The only think I hate is that it's in a wooden pencil packaging. The pencil part crumbles when I try to sharpen it. I'd rather it be in a twist up tube.

A makeup bag staple
Purchased

I use this almost everyday. I had to knock a start off because the color really is too light to use around my eyebrows (I wish they offered a variety of shades). But this pencil really brightens up my eyes when I add a bit to the inner corners. I look so much more refreshed than with just concealer alone.

Bad Quality Material
Purchased

I got this a few months back and at first I LOVED it. It really helps to define your brows and highlight your brow bone without being shimmery which is great for when you are rocking some sparkles/shimmer.

However, when it came time to sharpen it the wood just crumbled and fell apart. I was using a makeup pencil sharpener specifically designed for this use. I decided to try using a knife to try and sharpen it but the wood was such bad quality it just fell apart.

I have almost the entire pencil left but I can't do anything with it because I am unable to sharpen it.

makes eyes POP
Purchased

I had seen this product around and just never really gave it much attention. But the closer i get to 30, the more i realize what an important role your brows play in your beauty routine. after realizing all the time and money i spend on waxing and shaping my brows, this product appealed to me as another way to highlight my eyes. It is awesome! the color just makes my blue eyes POP and brings all the focus there. Love it and cannot recommend enough!
