A few weeks ago Topbox Circle & Benefit Canada sent me a Benefit Cosmetics Precisely My Brow Pencil in exchange for a review on Sephora’s & Shoppers Drug Mart’s websites. I was so excited to try this out, brow products are typically something that I buy from the drugstore or from ColourPop (see my Brow Boss & Precision Brow Pencil Reviews). I’m not too picky with my brow products as long as the shade matches me well, so I don’t delve in higher end brow pencils very often. They aren’t what I consider necessary & affordable in my current budget but many of my favourite YouTubers swear by the Benefit Cosemtics Precisely My Brow Pencil so of course I was curious to try it.
*The Benefit Cosmetics Precisely My Brow Pencil was sent to me for review but that doesn’t change my thoughts or opinions on it. I will always be honest in my reviews.*
Benefit Cosmetics Precisely My Brow Pencil Review
This ultra-fine eyebrow pencil draws incredibly natural-looking, hair-like strokes that last 12 budge-proof hours. A few strokes of the rich yet blendable colour will transform brows from shapeless & undefined to filled & defined eyebrows.

The Benefit Cosmetics Precisely My Brow Pencil retails for $32CAD and contains 0.08g of product. It comes in 8 different shades at Sephora and features a spoolie on one end. The Pencil is also available in mini size for $17CAD. I have the shade 4.5 which is a brown with a red undertone.
I love how luxurious the Precisely My Brow Pencil is. The silver twist up pencil is so stylish! I like that one cap is pointed while the other is short and angular so it’s easy for me to tell them apart. When I use my ColourPop Brow Pencils I always pull off the wrong side when I’m reaching for either the pencil or the spoolie.
The spoolie is soft and not scratchy at all. That’s very important to me. When I tried the Essence Make Me Brow Gel the spoolie was so infuriatingly scratchy that I stopped reaching for it even though I liked the formula itself. The tip of the Precisely My Brow pencil is thin so it’s easy to make precise lines. It’s a great pencil for carving out “instagram brows”!
The packaging gets an A+ from me.
Formula & Performance
The Precisely My Brow Pencil is really smooth and glides on almost like a gel pencil. I love how effortless it is to fill in sparse areas, blend them out and define the tail ends of my eyebrows. It takes me a little less time to fill them in using the Benefit Precisely my brow pencil than it does using a drugstore alternative. That being said, I feel like the end result is the same using this pencil vs a drugstore pencil. My eyebrows don’t really look any different using this $32 pencil or a $6- $12. A good alternative to this brow pencil is the ColourPop Brow Boss Pencil!
Benefit Precisely My Brow lasts most of the day for me. From my experiences the 12 hour claim is accurate. I have never looked in the mirror and thought “my eyebrows are gone!”
What’s your favourite brow pencil?
Overall I like the Precisely My Brow Pencil. It’s great but I’m just not willing to shell out $32 on an eyebrow product. Have you guys tried the Benefit Cosmetics Precisely My Brow Pencil? Did you find it all that different from a drugstore pencil? Let’s discuss! Talk soon xx
