Benefit High Brow Glow: Review and Swatch!

Today's featured product is Benefit's High Brow pencil highlighter.  I'm usually a eyeshadow/powder girl for highlighting my brows, so I was curious as to if I would like this pencil!

The color of this product is a frosty champagne, something that I feel would suit most skin tones.

As for size, this is a jumbo-sized pencil, which is nice because it can be really hard to use normal sized eye pencils for highlighting areas (they are just too small sometimes!).  Here is a size comparison between High Brow and a NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil.  You can see they are roughly the same size.

As for the actual quality of the product, I was really pleased with how easily this goes on the skin.  I've used a fair share of jumbo pencils that are dry/scratchy, but this went on really softly and was very easy to blend.  I think the color is great for a highlight under my brows, but if blended I think it could also work on darker complexions without looking too light.  However, this is very frosty.  If you don't like a very frosty highlight, I would steer clear of this one.

This product retails for $20 and can be found wherever Benefit products are sold.  If you like pencil eye highlighters and want to try something new, I think you will really like this product.  As for how it compares to the NYX Jumbo Pencils, I do think the Benefit one is a little smoother going on the skin (and thus a little easier to blend), but if you don't want to fork out $20, the NYX pencils could give a similar look!

What do you use to highlight your brows?

  1. I just use eye shadow. I don't really think it's necessary to buy a separate brow highlighter but I do use a brow pencil.

  2. Great post. I usually use eyeshadow to highlight.

  3. Eyeshadow does the work for me just fine.

  4. I switch it up mostly, but mainly powder! :)
