Benefit Ka-Brow VS Benefit Foolproof Brow Powder – Review

Hey lovelies! I’ve got yet another beauty product review for you today, so I thought I’d switch it up a bit and do a comparison post instead of a standard review. I purchased the Benefit ‘Magical Brow Stars’ set from Boots just after Christmas and I think I paid around £33 for it in the sale which was a bargain considering you get 5 full size products and an eyebrow brush. I’d never tried any Benefit brow products before purchasing this but I know how well loved they are throughout the beauty community so I couldn’t wait to start testing them!

In this post I’m going to be reviewing the Benefit ‘Ka Brow’ which is a pomade style product to the ‘Foolproof Brow Powder’ which clearly from the name is powder rather than pomade. I’m usually a pomade girl myself but I wanted to give all of the products in this set a fair test.

Ka Brow Review

So ‘Ka Brow’ would set you back £21.50 for a full size product or £11 for a mini one. On the Benefit website the product claims are ‘Brush on rich, buildable colour! This all-in-one eyebrow cream-gel easily fills, sculpts and defines brows. Plus the built-in hard-angled brush magically converts to a full-size brush for precise control & effortless application!’

I’ve seen a lot of beauty Youtubers talk about this product so I was really excited to use it and I wasn’t disappointed! The brush that comes with the product is quite small and I simply used the brush rather than fitting it into the product lid but I still found it pretty easy to use.

Ka Brow is a very thick product so a little bit really does go a long way, I do agree with the claims on the website though as I found it super easy to apply. It went on so smoothly and brushed out easily, the gel is very pigmented and for this reason I definitely think it’s for those of you who prefer a bolder brow because of how thick it is.

Overall I really enjoyed using this product, it didn’t fade at all during the day even after going out in the rain and my brows still looked the same when I came to remove my make up so I’d definitely use it again!


Foolproof Brow Powder

Benefit ‘Foolproof brow powder’ comes in at the same price as Ka Brow costing you £21.50 but as far as I could see they don’t offer a mini version of this product. The claims on the website for this product are ‘Get foolproof fullness and a soft, natural look with foolproof brow powder. This velvety smooth, 12-hour* formula instantly adheres to hair & skin transforming sparse brows into full-looking brows. The light-to-dark shade mimics the gradual look of natural brows and the eyebrow-shaped pan makes it super easy to apply… no harsh lines or mistakes!’

I loved the idea of this product having two different coloured powders, a darker one for the tail or your brows and then a lighter one for the middle. Again this product didn’t disappoint me and I agree with the claims, the eyebrow-shaped pan did make it really easy to use.

I used the Benefit Brow Brush to apply this product rather than the applicator that comes in with it but I still found it really easy to apply this powder to fill in my patchy brows. The product applied quickly but I did struggle a little to fill in the front of my brow where they’re more sparse with this .

If you’re looking for a product that will give you a natural brow for everyday wear and something you can throw on in the mornings when you’re in a rush then this product is definitely for you!


So… Ka Brow or Foolproof Brow Powder?

I think you can already tell from these pictures that Ka Brow is definitely much bolder than the powder. Although I did like both of these products, if I was going to repurchase one of them it would probably be Ka Brow. Don’t get me wrong I really enjoyed using the Foolproof Brow Powder, it was a lot easier to apply than some other eyebrow powders I’ve used in the past but I don’t tend to wear makeup every day so when I do I like a bolder brow which is easier to achieve using Ka Brow.

Honestly, it all depends on what you’re looking for in a product though. They were both easy to apply and they cost exactly the same so it’s just down to personal preference! For a bold look go with Ka Brow, for a more natural look get the powder. Either way they’re both great products and I can totally see why so many people love them!

Please let me know if you’ve enjoyed this post as I have both of the brow pencils from Benefit so I could do a post comparing them if you’ve liked this one! 

Have you tried either of these products? Let me know your thoughts on them in the comments!

  1. They both sound so good! I love how you were positive about both considering they are 2 totally different products. It really is down to personal preference . I’ve always used powder as I prefer a more natural look. But may try the gel especially for nights out when you want your brows to be their best. You can definitely tell the difference. But they do give 2 totally different effect. Thanks for sharing 😊
