Anyone that knows me knows I’m the tiniest bit pathological about my brows.
If your name isn’t Simphiwe or Fahima, and you don’t work at Eye Candy in Cavendish, you simply are not touching them.
My brows are like other people’s lashes or lips – I can’t leave the house without sorting them out. I think it probably comes from having to deal with my caterpillar brows when I was younger.
Anyway, I almost couldn’t contain myself when I heard Benefit was launching a 9 product-strong brow collection, and with the shade and formula variations, there are a total of 46 products to choose from! Hello, beautiful brows!

I was lucky enough to test every product at the launch, so I know my favourite is Ka-Brow in 04 Medium – it’s just the perfect formula for my brows. I have quite dark brows, so this accentuates them well. If you have very light brows, this may not be for you, but most girls will, ahem, Benefit from this product.
The range will be rolling out to all Benefit counters next week, so keep an eye out for them, or get them online at Red Square here. And if you are confused by all these products, go and chat to the Benebabes at the counters – they will be able to help you choose the best product for your needs.
