The “Ka-Brow!” by Benefit Cosmetics comes in small jar with a lid containing a removable brush. The brush is designed so that it can be used in two ways: either directly on its own or attached to the cap. The brush itself is angled and has very fine bristles that make it easy to use for application. The product design is very creative. In fact, the brush and lid are made of silver metal with a design on it. And the jar is transparent which reflects the color of the brow gel. The product and brand name are inscribed in pink and black on the lid.
This eyebrow gel has a tick consistency and a soft texture.
The product has a soft smell that is not overpowering and that fades away after application.
Shades Available and Shade Tested:
The “Ka-Brow!” by Benefit Cosmetics comes in 8 different shades that range from light and medium to deep dark. We tested shade 3 which is a warm light medium brown color.
Separate the built-in brush from the cap and the flip it and snap it onto the lid. Glide the brush lightly on the gel. For a natural look, stroke gently on the brows to draw an arch. For a more dramatic look, add another layer and define the shape of the brows more clearly.
When we tested the “Ka-Brow” eyebrow gel by Benefit Cosmetics we noticed how easy and convenient he product design is. In fact, the built-in brush is very suitable for application. It allowed us to sculpt our eyebrows smoothly because it is angled. Additionally, the gel itself is highly pigmented, so we needed on a bit of product for each eyebrow. Even for a natural look, some might find it a bit bold. The “Ka-Brow” gel held in place and did not smudge. And the product did not fade or become grainy. In fact, we were able to maintain the look of the eyebrows throughout the day. When we opted for a more dramatic look, we noticed that the product is buildable and does not lose any of its qualities when an extra layer is added.
