One of the best brow pencil i have ever tried ever, it gives the perfect filling to my eyebrows and the best of all, it looks very natural and last all day.
i apply it first drawing a graphic liner to give the shape i want and than i follow give in it little strokes in the same direction of the hair growth, later i diffuminate the color with the brush on the other end. My eyebrows look so naturally full because it also match my color perfectly, i have actually received compliments and questioning about what i am applying in my eyebrows to make them growth 😅
The pigmentation is just perfect, is not that strong but is perfect for my application tecnique, i love that i can play with it without being messy. It lasts me all me all day eventhough i have oily skin which is a plus.
The pencil itself is really cute, and has a very unique design. It’s also nice and comfortable to handle. Even my mom tried mine and immediately ordered one for her. It’s a really nice brow pencil.

I received this for free in a Vox box from Influenster. Thank you!! I really like the product overall. I think the pigmentation is really good. The tip of the pen is a little thick, but worked well for me since my brows are thicker to begin with. I had recently bought another brand of eyebrow pencil and the shade was too light, so I am glad this shade complimented my brows just right. I think the design and feel of the pen is a tad cheap. While it is kind of nostalgic with the 4 different push buttons, I am not a huge fan of it b/c I could see it easily breaking. The pen is kind of large to hold and apply, but I managed okay. My brows looked wayyy better after using this product, it stays on all day (even in the heat), and I do think it is a good product overall, but the price tag for this is ridiculous. It is not worth $34. Also, the definer and highlight shades did not work too well for me. They were hard to blend and the definer shade especially was visible near the brows, which I did not like. I would recommend this pen if you are not afraid to spend that much on an eyebrow pencil, but I am sure there are other similar ones out there :)

I accidentally bought this product when I went to sephora to replace my empty precisely my brow pencil. I didn’t realize I had purchased it until I was already at home getting ready to do my makeup the next morning. Since it was the only brow pencil I had, I decided to keep it and give it a try rather than returning it. That was a mistake. I like the formula of the pencil, it is creamy and long-wearing. But, I absolutely hate the shape! The strangely shaped tip makes it impossible for me to get a clean, precise line on my brows, and I have been penciling my brows in for years, so I usually don’t have much trouble. I can’t wait until it runs out and I can go back to my tried and true favorite, precisely my brow. I would MAYBE recommend this for someone who already has perfectly shaped brows but just wants to add a little pigment without doing any shaping. If you need to fill in many sparse areas, this isn’t the right product.

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!

This product is an okkaaayy product for me. I would NOT tell anyone to go out and spend their money on this, but it is not a horrible brow product. I have full natural brows already so this product doesn't do a lot for me, and it also doesn't do much for my friends with not-so-full brows. The pigmentation of the product is really good, however the shape makes for messy application. The shape of the tip makes it very difficult to apply, especially if you're going for a natural look. If you want a natural filled in brow, I recommend the Precisely My Brow pencil instead. It is 10X BETTER than this product of theirs. I guess I can see how the fuller part of the tip would be good for filling in large areas, but besides that, there is no other purpose for having that large of a tip. Not that impressed....

I bought this after I got a sample in an Ipsy bag. I was using Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel and LOVED it but was put because of the brief discontinuation of it. After using the sample twice I ran to Sephora to buy it. Brow liner pencils had always scared me for some reason but this one is so easy to use and not be too heavy or make your brows look like an over done idiot. I love how natural it makes my brows look and also how buildable it is if you do want a little extra. The fact that it’s also 2 tools in 1 is perfect as well. This is now a HG for me and will always have a place in my makeup bag.

By far not my favorite Benefit brow product. This is a very good pencil for someone who is new to their brow game or they don't have to do a lot of detail work. I have some wild Jennifer O'Connell brows and this just couldn't do the fine detail work needed to make them behave. The actual product is wider and flatter and is good if you just want to quick swipe on some color and go. It has a spoolie on the end will help tame as well. I just like a finer applicator to get the job done. Like I said, good for beginners.

I am absolutely obsessed with this brow product! This is the first Benefit brow coloring product I’ve tried, and it’s now a staple in my makeup routine!

The Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil comes with a spoolie on one end, and the brow product on the other. It is easy to roll up and down into the tube, and the product will last you a very long time! It never dries out or gets greasy, so it always feels like you’re applying it for the very first time. The coverage/darkness of your brows is very buildable. You can create subtle contours and hair strokes and have it look totally natural, or go bold and have statement brows by making harder strokes and layering your desired shape.

Make your brow contour a breeze with this 2-in-1 product, and give everyone brow envy! I would definitely buy this product again!

The Goof Proof Brow Pencil is Benefit’s answer to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer. This pencil has a slanted tip so that you can quickly fill in your brows. There is a spoolie on the other end. My shade is 3 Medium but I can also wear 2 Light. If you’re looking to do more detailed work, I recommend the Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil which has a fine pointed tip similar to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz®.

Well, I am just now realizing that I did not buy the product that comes so highly recommended by beauty gurus. I mean — this one isn’t terrible, but I feel like the product is way too fat to get a precise brow. It looses its shape so quickly that the point ends up becoming this dull, unmanageable, rounded rectangle, which is super not fun. I might try the Precisely My Brow by Benefit (which is what I had intended to buy), but you know... you just can’t beat Anastasia’s Brow Wiz, friends. She is the best for a reason.
