Last week I popped along to Benefit’s Carnaby Street store to find out all about their newest launch (more on that soon) and whilst I was there I was treated to a shape and tint…and now I know what all the fuss is about! I keep hearing people rave about the Benefit Brow Bar and it makes sense that they’d be very good at brows considering just how many brow products they have in their range (including Gimme Brow which is easily the best brow product I have in my collection) but I often thought that there was only so good a brow treatment could be, as there’s only so much you can do with a set of brows, right?
This was my first visit to a Benefit Brow Bar, purely and simply because I always get my brows done at Blink at Brent Cross as that’s also where I do the majority of my shopping, so it’s all about convenience and in fairness they do a great job. I’m used to having my eyebrows threaded so the Benefit Brow experience was new to me as it involves a tint followed by a wax and finished with a tweeze if necessary. I’m always a bit nervous about tints as a slightly too dark brow can look ridiculous against my pale skin, but thankfully Vicky – the fab girl who did my brows – understood as she has a similar complexion to me. Tint was applied for around a minute before it was removed and the shaping started. Vicky gave me a mirror and used a pencil to demonstrate how she would shape my brows. She then used wax to remove the hair before finish with an application of concealer to tone down the redness. I really like the finished result! The shape is great as there’s a real arch there which is quite tricky to achieve with my brows, the colour is also spot-on and they just generally look really polished, neat and flattering, so I definitely recommend visiting a Benefit Brow Bar if you’re in need of a decent brow shape. I’m not sure on the prices from what I can gather on Google they’re very reasonable with prices starting at £18. For more info on the Benefit Brow services head here – link.
