Hi girls and boys!Today we today we talk about benefit goof proof review. I know you are talking a lot about the blog and the YouTube channel but you know how much we care! We will never say enough is not it! 😉
If you are not badly connected on the social networks, no doubt you could not escape the surge Benefit! The brand literally created the buzz by introducing us to its brand new eyebrow range: existing products reformulated with new colors and new products, all in a brand new silver packaging!I will present them very briefly because this is not the subject of my article 😉

- – High Brow: illuminator pencil to illuminate the underside of the eyebrow.
The new products:

It is therefore on this last novelty eyebrows that I have presented to you that I will go to epilogue!
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil
The Goof Proof comes in a silver plastic packaging with a cap on each side. You pull on one you discover a retractable mine cut like a diamond and which makes it possible to obtain fine lines as thick.On the other side is a bristle brush, which helps to spread the material in the eyebrows and to comb them.
For me it is really an indispensable element when talking about “eyebrow pencils”. All eyebrow pencils should have one of these! (And not in the irritating plastic style of the Sephora retractable eyebrow pencil!)I chose it in shade N ° 4 which is the second Medium tint (among 6 shades in total) at the price of 26,50 €
Benefit describes the product on cardboard packaging and as usual there are some tempting statistics – Definition and easy filling
- – 95% agree with it
- – 94% declare with beautiful eyebrows from the first use
- – Effect natural color thanks to its discreet color
- – Ultra precise mine
- – Long-lasting and waterproof
Well, that’s all! In all irony, it goes without saying!
After a pre-sale a few weeks before its release, I have the Goof Proof in my possession for two weeks now, so I can give you my impressions on this long-awaited novelty!
During the application, the mine, quite creamy, slips well in the eyebrow and marks on the 1st passage. The texture is waxy but not dry which also allows to fix a strand the eyebrows at the same time that the colors. The formula is much pigmented hence the interest of not just drawing a line, but of making light and little supported acouts.
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil
The thicker part of the pencil makes it possible to fill the eyebrow well and the finer point allows me to trace and define my eyebrow tail in all simplicity.
Yes in all simplicity because it is true that everyone can use the Goof Proof without difficulty that you are warned or beginners in makeup. The whole thing is not to color or overfill your eyebrow. And all is also to choose its good shade!
I relied on the images of the brand to choose the 4 medium color and I find that in the end I would have preferred a lighter color, more taupe and colder than this one that happens to be a warm brown (without pigments red). The color passes all the same but I think I can find better among the 6 colors proposed! (I’d swatcher that as soon as it went out to Sephora).
If like me sometimes you go a little too loud is where the brush tip comes in that will allow to diffuse the pigments for a uniform result. And if you after that the result seems too sharp and not natural enough, you have the good old trick of cotton stem. Just pass it on your eyebrow to remove the excess material ;))
- – Very easy to use
- – Long lasting
- – Retractable Mine
- – Integrated brush tip
- – Pleasant to apply
- – Precise pencil ideal for eyebrow tail
- – Choice of 6 shades
The – :
- – Price: 26, 50 €
- – Too pigmented
- – Packaging silver plastic a little cheap
- – A fast tend to make unnatural as the pencil marks well
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil: My Balance Sheet
Here we are at the end of this crash test! I must say that I appreciate this pencil very much. Since I learned to manage his much pigmented side, I really take only 2 minutes to make my eyebrows in the morning which is very nice! I love products that save me time! 😉
Although really very good in many points, it is not transcendent enough in my opinion for me to redeem it once I have finished it. Already because the color does not correspond to 100% to what I like to wear on my eyebrows and secondly because I find it is not natural enough to my liking as was the Gimme Brow of Benefit or the Brow Perfector of Nars.

I much prefer the less pigmented products (for the eyebrows only eh!) And more taupe, after that is only a matter of taste.
That said I think it will suit many, pro as beginners because of its ease of use and its 2 in 1 side with its integrated brush tip!
