We tried Benefit's new brow shades. See the swatches below.

Why we love this product

Our beauty product of the week this week is not one product, but four. We're absolutely loving Benefit's brand new brow shades.

As is well known, Benefit is the leader in the brow category. From pencils to powders, Benefit has some of the most fabulous brow-enhancing products on the market. Its two pencil products, Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil and Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil are certainly two favourites in the range. I have used both and can vouch that they are fantastic products.

The quick verdict

Why is it good? It offers a more inclusive range of shades.

How much is it? $43.00.

Where to buy it? Sephora

So we were very excited to hear that Benefit had decided to extend the shade range available for these two products. Benefit very recently released 4 brand spanking new shades taking the number of colours from 8 to a more inclusive 12.

The new shades are 2.5 Neutral Blonde, 2.75 Warm Auburn, 3.75 Warm Medium Brown and an off-the-scale shade called Cool Grey. Most of the new shades cluster around the middle of the shades spectrum, giving those with different hair tones and complexions a better choice of brow colours. Our editorial team gave them all a try and we were totally impressed with what we saw.

The new blonde colour is a great option for blondes who prefer a darker ashy tone. The auburn shade has a pretty red undertone and looks fab on redheads and brunettes that want more warmth in their brows. The medium brown colour is a match for darker brunettes and ideal for anyone who loves the original 3.5 shade but wants more depth. The grey tone was the most interesting colour to try. Of course, it's perfect for those with grey hair but it's also a fabulous option for anyone wanting to add more of an ashy tone to their brows. If you've got warm-toned brows but want them to be cooler, this will help you achieve your look.

Check out the swatches for a better look at the new colours side by side.

Benefit's new shades in the Goof Proof and Precisely, My Brow pencils are the same price as the rest of the range – $43.00.

Where to buy

You can buy the new shades at all the standard Benefit stockists. But our favourite places to shop would be Sephora and Adore Beauty because the shipping is the quickest. But, you can shop at Myer if you prefer.
