Beauty Review | Benefit's Brow Zings

Brows are a huge trend at the moment ! I never really paid attention to brows when I was younger and now when I look back at photos I cringe, asking why no one ever told me to fill them in and give them a bit of colour !! Eyebrows can really shape your face and pull a whole look together. For ages, I just used eye shadow to fill them in. While this did a decent job, I was never overly happy with them. I attended a master class event with benefit at the start of the year and one of the beauticians was actually a specialist in eyebrows and yes that is a real thing ! She showed us exactly how to shape our brows and showed us the difference it makes. Immediately I was hooked and knew I needed the Brow Zings in my life, however at €34 it's not exactly in my student weekly budget.

Soon after I went to the ITWBN event and in our AMAZING goody bags was a €50 voucher for Debenhams !!! I was over the moon, I knew exactly what I'd be buying with it. So I headed into Debenhams a while later and picked up the little beauty. The MUA at the Benefit counter was super helpful and demonstrated how to use it again.

So Brow Zings is the cutest little kit for brows. As you can probably tell by now, I'm a big fan ! I have the kit in the darkest shade. In my opinion, the wax on it's own isn't great, it's too greasy. The powder on it's own is too powdery and looks very cakey. However the two of them combined together is magic. I dip my brush into the wax first and then the powder. I start by drawing an outline of my brows then fill them in. When doing my makeup my eyebrows are always the very first thing I do ( I learned that from Hila Karmand, MUA to the stars). After outlining and filling them in, I fix any mistakes with concealer.

The brushes in my opinion are actually quite good. I like that they are very angled and thin. My only issue is that they're quite small so I always use the spectrum eyebrow brush. I just find it easier. But they're perfect for travel ! The tweezers are probably the only thing I don't really like. Don't get me wrong they're fine but I prefer the P.S Love tweezers from Pennies. The kit is such a good size and fits into any handbah/clutch perfectly but I never need to bring it out because it's so long lasting. I can usually get about 8-10 hours without touch ups !

I have heard that Sleek have a dupe for Brow Zings. I haven't tried it yet but I think the Sleek version retails for about €10 with is a considerable difference. I probably won't have to worry about it for along time yet, my friend has had Brow Zings for almost 2 years and is only now starting to hit pan!

Overall, I really like this product. I'd consider it my holy grail eyebrow product. Have you tried out the Brow Zings ? What do you think ?
