I gotta say, I wasn’t sure what to do with these Benefit Brow Contour Pro 4-in-1 Defining & Highlighting Brow Pencils at first… Do I fill in my brows with them? Or do I furiously take organic chemistry notes? — because back in college those four-color click pens were all the rage in my science classes, and we used to joke that the faster you clicked your pen, the more desperate you were to get into med school, ha ha!
So, about these, I appreciate that Benefit calls them “Pro” because I feel like you gotta be a professional brow person to really appreciate them.
Because they’re 1) very pigmented and 2) very soft, which can be either a lethal or a pleasant combination, depending on your level of brow game. Like, if you don’t know what you’re doing, there’s a good chance you’ll end up with severe, blocky brows.

If your brow game is already on point, then you may really like how quickly you can fill out the sparse spots with these, but FYI, be careful. These are soooo easy to over-apply. It took me a few tries to figure out how much product I needed, and the first few times I used these I ended up with comical Halloween costume brows… I looked like I was doing an Instagram brow parody, or like I had two apostrophes on my forehead. ‘ ‘
Bottom line: They’re intense. Best for peeps who want lots of color, quickly, and who also know what the heck they’re doing.
There are five of them available, and they’re $34 each.
