Benefit's High Brow (£15.50) has been around for a good while now but has seemingly gone unnoticed being a simple, slightly unnecessary product when comparing to their liquid tints or flash BB creams. I've never find a brow bone highlighter a necessity as one can easily create such a product with likes of a light, nude-y eyeshadow, be it matte or iridescent. Yet, after a while I found myself in need of a staple, brow product that was natural enough to wear on a day-today basis or complete a smokey eye. 

After reading many mixed reviews on such a product I was hesitant to try it on first application. Luckily my expectations were exceeded and the product worked beautifully, lifting the natural shape of my brows and making my overall eye area appear younger, awake and rejuvenated. The subtle, Linen Pink hue means that when blended correctly, the colour is perfect for all shades of skin, a bonus in my eyes.

The key to getting the best out of this product is blending. This chubby pencil is ultra-pigmented and looks very unsubtle when first applied. This issue can be easily fixed with a detailed eyeshadow brush that can blend out the colour in every which way. Luckily the consistency of the product is extra creamy making it a dream to blend. Once applied seamlessly, the overall product appears faultless and fulfil's its 'high' brow claim. The only negative to this product arises when not blended properly. The product can then appear cheap and chalky and lasts clumsily on the eyebrows meaning all the attention is taken away from those beautifully, groomed brows. Luckily, this is a negative by application though, not the actual product so don't let this put you off buying said item and seeing for yourself if it will become a new staple in your cosmetics collection. Especially with the new release of Benefit's Speed Brow, you may find these two products becoming your very own brow 'dream team'. 

All in all, a lovely product that has definitely been a wonderful addition to my everyday make up routine.
