I love this brow pencil,... The angled tip makes getting that perfect line and tail absolutely effortless. I’m on my second GoofProof now and I think it’s safe to say I will continue to keep buying this brow pencil for as long as they continue to make it. When Benefit came out with their new brow product line, I wasn’t supremely excited. And then I actually tried their products, and WHOA. They definitely gave ABH a run for her money. The quality is fantastic, the packaging is beautiful, and the price is reasonable for what you get. One of these brow pencils lasts me about 7 months with almost daily use. That’s a great value... It takes so little to create a polished brow look and you don’t need to layer on the product to see the pigment. I can’t say enough good things about Goof Proof, I suggest you head to your local Sephora or Ulta and grab one for yourself to try it out!

I love the formula of this brow pencil, as it is creamier than most and not as waxy. However, the shape kills me because I always wore down the pointier end and would end up with a thick, bulbous pencil that I wasn't able to use to fill in my brow correctly. I would have to use a piece of paper to draw on to get the pencil's shape back again, which wasted a lot of product. If you have oily skin, don't even think about touching your brows while you have this on because it will just smudge away. I also am not a huge fan of the shade selection and was between shades. Four was a bit too warm for me, and five was too dark. Needed something in between. I won't repurchase, but I didn't HATE it.

The color is a perfect match for my brows. I love how easy this is to use and the thickness of this pencil helps me to fill in my brows faster than when I use one that is thin. The only drawbacks on this for me is that it is stiff and not as creamy as I would like it to be. If it was a bit more on the creamy side and not so stiff I would like this better. However, this is still a pretty good brow pencil. I do love how there is a spoolie on the end of it so I'm not reaching for so many different tools just to do my brows. I however don't know If I will repurchase this once I am finished with it, mostly because I am trying out different brow products to see which one I like best.

I've used a lot of brow pencils over the years and I thought I would really like this one, but then I realized that I didn't totally understand how this pencil is designed to work. I have neutral medium brown hair with ashy roots and the shade 4 is perfect for me while most medium brown or taupe shades have an awkward red undertone. I have primarily used mechanical brow pencils with a small tip in the past and they would take quite a bit of time to fill in daily, so I thought that the teardrop shape of this would speed things up, however, the pencil's pigment gets grabbed and applied where brows are full and don't really apply to skin directly. My brows are pretty average and get sparse at the tails and at the head but are full in between. The Goof Proof pencil fills in the middle of my brows great but doesn't easily fake a tail like I need. The product lasts all day but I rarely have issues with makeup fading or transferring. I have since tried a mini Precisely, My Brow in shade 3 and while the color is an awful match for me, the formula is much better, I just wish the tip was a bit bigger so that I didn't have to spend 5-10 mins just doing my brows. Overall, I think this particular pencil would be great for those with full, blonde or white brows that needs to add pigment or those who want a product to shape or color but are naturally full.

One of my favorite brow products. The tear drop applicator is perfect for the shape and intimate space of the brows. The product is easy to work with without being drying or dragging but it is not sloppy or wet. It’s a very perfect consistency. 

The trick with this product is pressure. The amount of pressure determines the opacity of the product on your brows. This product is easy to blend out as well so you can achieve natural or bold brows depending on your preference and the amount of pressure you place on the pencil.

i have both shades 1 & 3, I use both to create definition and dimension in my brows to achieve a groomed but natural look.

This is a great brow product if you want a pencil thats quick and easy to swipe through the brows. It has a thicker, sorta tapered point to it, so you can go across the entire brow and use the tapered edge to sculpt & define a bit. It also has a good spoolie at the end so you can brush excess product through. The packaging is cute although sometimes more bulky & unnecessary, especially for travel. The major downside to this product is the price, its expensive! For $24 I dont know if its worth it considering I can find a good product at the drugstore for less than half. I most likely will not repurchase this.

I love this. The formula is great and smooth and lasts all day! I use to fill in brows after shaping with precisely my brows. The shape it a little hard to get a precise lining so it’s definitely more for filling in brows and not defining shape. I also hate how both ends have same shape and design on tops so you can’t tell which end is which when grabbing quickly. I use 3D brow tones in one shade lighter after good proof for a little extra demension.

This is the only brow product I will use! I have tried many others, but I always come back to this one. It is good proof, I started using it as a beginner and this made it a lot easier to do my brows. I love that it has a spool on one end so that you can brush them out before and after, and if you make them too dark when you use the spooly it makes them lighter, which is great for me because I have light blonde brows and sometimes I'm a little heavy handed when I'm doing them.

I'm just getting into eyebrows cause I was always intimidated that they would look to dark and I would look like a clown. However, I was completely wrong. It's all on how dark you want them. I usually use a light hand in the beginning but going towards the end of eyebrow I go heavier. Benefit cosmetics is a great makeup company. Yes, all high end makeup is pricey but you can go on HSN and purchase with flex pay which you can make payments for those of us on a budget.

I love this eyebrow pencil!!! It’s very easy to apply and if looks so Natural! I’m a boy so looking natural is very important to me personally because I don’t like to look like I have makeup on. The product is in like a shiny silver casing and it looks so 50s! I love it! It has a brush on the end and it’s great for brushing your eyebrows to get the hairs in the perfect place. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a natural looking brow!
