Go Get Benefit Brows A-Go-Go

August 25, 2011

The eyebrows are a key part of facial features yet often left unattended due to focusing on “fun” color cosmetics by way of eyeshadow, lipstick and blusher. But just as a quick swipe of mascara can make eyes pop, so can the proper face framing of clean, groomed eyebrows.

Enter Benefit’s Brows A-Go-Go kit ($38). This square-shaped 2.5 x 2.5-inch palette offers an entire regimen for alluring eyebrows—if you have the time. It is touted for helping the user “line and define your brows and eyes wherever you go-go.” This mini-kit is stocked with a variety of tools, but only a few stand out.

The set contains:
-Brow zings powder (light)
-Brow zings powder (dark)
-Brow zings wax 
-Smokin' liner in black
-Eye Bright highlighter    
-Mini tweezers
-Hard angle/talent brush
-Step-by-step lesson

The cover of the kit is emblazoned with a vintage-inspired illustration of a gal with perfectly groomed eyebrows, natch.

The good news about Brows-A-Go-Go is that if you are seeking to tweeze a stray hair or two, the set may inspire you to style the brows as well with its fun little set of offerings. Key features include the Brow Wax, which smoothes and then sets the Brow Powder. Colors are true, as the Light faded into my brown brows but the Dark was a perfect fit.

A handy mirror helps you check out your handiwork. The highlighter powder delivers a true pink shimmer—however, there is no brush provided for that step, as you are encouraged to use the fingers. Same for the eye bright for the inner eyes. I didn’t even bother to use the eyeliner, but its placement might be ideal if you are travelling with this kit. In short, if you have a few minutes to spare, this palette can complete your cosmetic look.
