My first EVER purchase from Benefit plus a few freebie samples!
Hey girls, so today was suppose to be a nice stay in bed relazing sunday, I had no (well maybe a little) intention of going shopping but yet again my will power let me down, see i get distracted easily and to be honest i love trying new things so when my friend said she had an appointment at Benefit i just had to go with too. She booked to get her eyebrows waxed&tinted (this wasn't her first time) and as im still a wax virgin i thought i'd tag along to be nosey. I'm never 100% keen on going up to the girls at the counter cause I've had so many of them be rude but i must say the girls at Benefit were absolutly lovely today, so helpful and full of great advice/tips and VERY beautiful too!
It took about 25 mins in total but like i said we were chatting away to the staff that worked there, and once we started we couldnt stop. I've been introduced to Benefit before by a friend, so I'm not a total stranger to the range, she had one of the blushers and i must say it did look flawless on her. Anyway so i dived in and had a little look at their cosmetics and i just fell inlove with their packaging its so cute and girlie which won me over instantly. I'm a huge MAC fan but after today im seriously thinking of converting to Benefit cosmetics, girls this is major!
Without going on to much, down to what i actually did purchase from the counter, 'brow shaping kit' £22.50. Throughout the waxing&tinting the bit i enjoyed the most was the after care and how she demostrated the 'brow shaping kit' it was quick and easy application and my god they looked so natural. I know the HD BROWS are pretty popular for us beauty lovers but i figured whilst i was there i may as well try the Benefit kit. Again i just want to say how lovely the girls were, they very kindly gave both me and my friend a few samples which i cannot wait to try. Check out what I came home with today...
treatment with prices for the brow bar
The Brow Shaping Kit: in medium
Comes with two small brushes, one angled to get definition and the other a blending brush, also which i thought was really handy are a small pair of tweezers (this is just the perfect kit for putting in your bag). The pallet on the left is like wax which is the one you apply first then the powder pallet on the right which is used to fill in your brows and in doing this i would probably use the angled brush giving a natural looking brow.
