I recently visited the Benefit Brow Bar for the first time (you can read that post here) to have my brows waxed and tinted, initially my trip to the Benefit counter was to buy a brow product, I hadn't booked in for my brows done, it was only when I was there trying products and the sales assistant spoke to me about it and they had a spare slot that I decided to have it done, my trip to Benefit was originally to purchase just one item, but after having my brows done I went with some of the other products I'd had recommended to me by the sales assistant and today I thought I'd share with you what I picked up, I will have a full review of the products coming soon but I thought if I included my thoughts in this post it may be a tad too long. Anyway, here's what I picked up.
Benefit Gimme Brow
The Benefit Gimme Brow is a cult product and one I have seen mentioned on many different blogs for a long time but never picked up, the sales assistant explained to me that the gimme brow is brilliant for a quick and easy brow look and this sold it to me to be honest, I hate filling my brows in and in all honesty, it's a bit of a struggle for me and I'm never happy with my brows so I was hoping this would be something I could use that would be simple to use and look good. I picked up the shade 01 which is the lightest shade, there are 2 other shades available 03 medium and 05 deep, you can find the Gimme Brow on the Look Fantastic website here for £18.50 inc free delivery.
Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil
The Precisely My Brow pencil is something I knew I wanted to pick up before I visited the Benefit counter, and was the reason for my visit. I had spoken to fellow blogger friend, the lovely Liza about it as I envied her brows (bit strange of me I know) after watching one of her Youtube video's. The packaging of the pencil is fabulous, the pencil looks like an arrow, which is very different from any other brow pencil I own or have seen, I like the packaging but have to admit it has grown on me as at first I wasn't too keen. The pencil has a spoolie brush on one end and the product twists up on the other end, I picked up the shade 02 but it is available in 6 shades. The sales assistant Olivia who served me said that the pencil is brilliant for drawing on individual hairs as well as filling in brows which is something I need as my brows are so sparse. You can pick the Precisely My Brow pencil up from the Look Fantastic website here for £18.50 inc free delivery.
Benefit Browvo Conditioning Primer
I picked up the Browvo primer after the sales assistant told me that her and the girls on the counter had noticed their brows had grown since using it, the product doesn't actually claim it will aid your brows in growing, it is a conditioning primer that can be worn alone or under brow products and helps brows to look thicker and fuller but the girls on counter have all noticed their brows growing so I thought I'd give it a go as I need all the help in that department. The Browvo is a clear gel and can be applied to the brows at night time to help condition them over night, or can be worn under brow products to enhance them and extend their wear time or you can wear it alone to smooth and nourish the brows, I will be using it under my brow products and at night time to hopefully help my brows grow. You can find the Browvo on the Look Fanstastic website here for £21.50 inc free delivery.
So those are the products I picked up recently from the new Benefit brow range, I will be back very soon with reviews of all 3 products and to let you know how I have been getting along with the products since I have been using them for almost 4 weeks now, so if you are interested in finding out more about the products I picked up, keep an eye out for those posts coming soon. I will also update you on my brows since having them waxed and tinted too.
Have you tried any of the new Benefit brow products? What do you think of them? Do you like the packaging? Let me know in the comments section below.
Also a huge thank you to Olivia at the Benefit counter in Boots, Manchester for all her help, she was brilliant and really helpful, she let me try all the different products too for myself and I found that very helpful and thank you to Ruby who waxed and tinted my brows for me, both girls were lovely and extremely helpful and both helped me with sitting down and getting up too which makes a huge difference and was very kind of them.
Thank you for reading, much love as always
