Review: Benefit Brow Bar

Hello ladies,

Just over a week ago i attended a Benefit event in Leeds for the release of the new Benefit Box O'Powder lipglosses (Which i will be doing a separate post on). At the event i met the lovely Adele who is actually the business manager at the Benefit counter in the white rose, after chatting with her me and Carla made an appointment to see her the following morning to get our brows done. 

Admittedly, my brows were dreadful! There wasn't much to them and they had no shape to them whatsoever so i knew that they would need a lot of work! The whole brow experience was just amazing! They first map your eyebrows to see if they arch in the right place/are long enough and basically the correct shape for your face shape and they will then ask how you would like your perfect brows. I explained that i know i have no arch at all (more of a curve) but in a ideal world i would love an arch.

I then had my eyebrows tinted. My brows are a extremely dark brown so i had them tinted dark brown with a hint of black. As well as changing the colour of your brows slightly (which i think tinting is absolutely perfect if you have fair hair) they also pick up the lighter hairs and allow for the brow expert to have more hair to work with in order to create your perfect brows. 
Once tinted, I had my eyebrows waxed. I have had them waxed before so i knew exactly what to expect and i dont find that it hurts at all. Waxing done, Adele filled in my eyebrows in with the Brow Zings in Dark quite heavily, mixing together the powder and the wax to show me what we were looking for as a 'ideal brow' to show me the shape we were going for. She then took this off and then filled them in. What i love about the whole Benefit Brow experience is unlike some other places that i have had my brows waxed at before they actual conceal and powder you afterwards so your not left with huge red patches around your eye area. 

The whole treatment for mapping, tinting, waxing, filling and concealing costs £18.50 which i really do feel is such a reasonable price. Adele even said that this one occasion was on them which was so lovely of her so thank you so much Adele if you are reading this! I am booked in for 3 weeks time and have been told not to touch the tweezers and leave my brows to grow (eek!) you should see the growth i have had already after a week who knows what they are going to be like in another 3! But i know that it will all be worth it in the end and i am looking forward to perfect brows (Finally!)

  10. Ahhh Sinead they seriously look amazing! Your experience does sound a lot better than the ones I used to get at my local Benefit counter though -I stopped going there after one woman waxed 1/4 of my brow off and didn't tell me, instead choosing to pencil it in! Perhaps I should try a different brow bar eh haha. xxx
