I've been a long-time Brow Mascara user! Even way back when Brow Mascaras aren't that known in our country yet (sige na, pagbigyan niyo na ang bragging rights ko :P) So up until this very moment, I own several backups of my favorite Brow Mascaras bought by my brother in Hong Kong!
Some international brands I've tried through the years ---
Sana Styling W Brow (My first Brow Mascara ever!)
Glad there are locally available ones now ---
But my ultimate favorite that works for my hair color and skin tone goes to ---
And I've been using it for YEARS! Yes, I've tried and tested various brands but I always go back to it! Unfortunately, I had to wait for my brother to visit Hong Kong and hoard again for me, and I'm running out of it, using my last tube!
Just when I thought I'm doomed to use the 2nd best, little did I know there will be a big surprise for me when Benefit created their biggest brow collection yet! Included in the 2016 brow collection launch are their 3D Browtones. I knew about the product but didn't take notice until I had my brows done in their Brow Bar! The Brow Expert (after waxing my brows) had to draw my brows before letting me go! It was love at first sight! I had to ask the exact products used because my brows looked amazing...and amazingly...different!
And I was told she used THIS....
I've done my brows so many times at Benefit Brow Bar (various branches, all the Brow Experts are good!) and I've tried both shades 2 and 4, so far, with my new hair color, no. 2 won!
Benefit 3D BROWTones Brow Enhancer says ---

As for application, I like to apply it like a normal brow mascara!
Check out my other brow, it was defined with a brow pencil before I applied 3D Brow Tones.
Before and After
Bare brows vs Brows with Benefit 3D BrowTones, see how natural it looks? It just highlights my brows and best used together with existing brow product/s.
Do you think you need a brow enhancer? Or highlights for brows?
I used to think I don't need one until I used this!
