Fool-proof brows: Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil and new shades

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil

When it comes to brows, one brand that rules the game is definitely Benefit Cosmetics.

As much as they are the brow authority in the beauty world (they even have pop ups in Sephora stores where you can get your brows waxed and perfected), I actually haven’t tried many Benefit brow products… until now.

Recently, the brand expanded the shade range on their popular Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil to include four new shades to cater to cool blonde, auburn, and grey/cool black hair. This brings the shade range up to 12 colours to suit just about any brow colour.

One of these new shades is 3.75, warm medium brown, which suits my brows perfectly.  Now you guys know I actually had microblading done late last year, so although I don’t typically fill in my brows on a daily basis, if I am doing my makeup for an event or a night out, then I’ll grab my brow pencil.  Just because you have your brows microbladed, doesn’t mean that there won’t be some slight fading, which is why I highly recommend just investing in a brow pencil to even out any sparsity that may appear.

Anyways, back to the brows, the Goof Brow Eyebrow Pencil is actually Canada’s number-one prestige brow product and features a spoolie on one end and the retractable pencil on the other.  The pencil itself features a slanted tip to precisely sculpt out the brow shape, making it easy to achieve perfect brows quickly.  As for the formula itself, this product is super creamy and I find that it really is the perfect formula to give you amazing-looking brows. I can definitely see why this is so popular here in Canada.

I have tried out a lot of different brow pencils, gels, and powders, but this has quickly become my new go-to must-have product for the brows. The colour glides on and the shape of the pencil itself makes it super easy to fill them in.  The pencil is also waterproof and promises a 12-hour wear (which honestly, I probably have gotten a longer wear out of this since it stays on so well).

Now that the shade range has expanded to include more options for blondes, brunettes, and auburns, I highly recommend checking this pencil out for the ultimate product for creating the perfect eyebrow.

Nourishing colour: Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick

I love a good moisturizing lipstick.

Although my lipstick drawer is literally overflowing with different colours, brands, and formulas, I would never say no to trying out new ones. I don’t think I’ve ever tried out Avon’s lipsticks, so when I got the cutest makeup bag filled with five different colours, I couldn’t wait to dig in.

The Avon True Color Nourishing Lipsticks (C$10 on sale right now for C$7.99) are available in 25 different shades and are a very moisturizing colour that feels comfortable on the lips and delivers the prettiest hues.

Infused with jojoba oil, vitamin e, collagen, and lanolin, these lipsticks leave lips feeling conditioned and moisturized all day long (and even after you take them off!). These lipsticks deliver bold colour with a slight sheen to it and is definitely the kind of product that I would toss in my bag for everyday wear.

I received five shades as the brand recently released 15 new ones to add to the collection (I guess the original collection was only 10 colours). They also offer the Avon True Color Glimmerstick Lip Liners as well if you want to pair them with a liner.

Overall, I really love the wear of these lipsticks and although I typically sway more towards neutral colours, I’m really digging the pinks in this line. I think once I start to get a tan now that the weather is warming up, these will look so pretty to rock in the summertime. Plus, the moisturizing wear will feel so awesome during a hot night on a patio somewhere.

Get Closer: Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Light-Capturing Self-Setting Concealer

If there is one line that when I see they release a new item I just have to try, it’s Make Up For Ever’s Ultra HD.

Brand new to the Ultra HD family is their Ultra HD Concealer, which is a self-setting concealer that brightens, smoothes, and stays put on your face for hours.  Make Up For Ever says that this concealer, available in 22 shades, has a medium coverage but can be built up to full, and won’t crease on you leaving you with a natural finish.

I love trying out concealers but since I don’t have any real issues that I need covered up, they all tend to work for me pretty great. This particular formula features amino acid-coated pigments that immediately adjust to the skin for a 12-hour wear that stays put.


I’ve been testing out this concealer for a few weeks now and am impressed with how it makes my skin look.  I really the love applicator since it’s a doe foot, making it easy to apply the product and actually target where you want it (although this type of applicator is pretty standard by now for concealers anyways). Although they say it’s self-setting, that doesn’t mean you can just put it on and go about your day. You of course still need to blend it out, but you don’t need to put a setting powder over top for it to last hours on the skin, which is awesome (and perfect for travel TBH).

This concealer retails for C$35 and launched late last year (in Sephora stores as of January 2019 though).  I have a few of their Ultra HD foundations and powders and am surprised it took them this long to come out with a concealer to add to the family. Would I recommend this concealer over other ones that are popular right now like Tarte Shape Tape and Fenty Beauty’s Pro Filt’r Concealer? I’ve been lucky to try out a bunch of new concealers lately, and although I don’t find this one to be any different or stand out amongst the other ones I have tried, I did find it did the trick and made my skin look flawless for the day.



If you are a fan of MUFE’s Ultra HD line (which I know a lot of you are), I would definitely check it out since you can keep it in the family, if you will. I think this concealer does the trick and would be a welcome addition to anyone’s makeup collection.

Are you an Ultra HD fan?
