Lets start with my eyebrow history. I actually only started plucking them a year a go and then I started going to Superdrug to get them threaded. Oh how that hurts! I was always left unimpressed by the customer service and threading left my eyes streaming which is pretty embarrassing. Plus the shape wasn't very good and if I was going to embarrass myself I at least wanted to have good brows at the end.
It was when I was chatting to some lovely Benebabes at the Leeds Launch of Fine One One that I realised Benefit really know there thing when it comes to brows. So it didn't take much convincing for me to pay my local Benefit a visit for some much needed eyebrow tlc. It costs £11.50 for a brow arch which is twice as much as Superdrug but you get what you pay for.
I made an appointment in advance as the service is very popular so they get booked up. When I arrived they were running perfectly on time and I was sat down to fill in a little form. I was recommended to get a tint and brow arch, which is a wax, but as that comes to a pricey £18 I went for just the waxing. So the actually waxing process was pretty much painless and over very fast. There was a slight stinging but not anything like threading. My forehead was left as red as a tomato but that was quickly sorted out with some concealer. Then my brows were filled in with some Brow Zing and I was good to go. It only took around 10 to 15 minutes in total! The Benebabe that did my eyebrow was lovely and I have found this with lots of Benefit counters.
Below you can see the sorry state of eyebrows before and the difference afterwards.
I am very happy with the end result. It's hard to see what a mess they were before but you can see how lifted and more arched they look. I have already booked an appointment with the same woman for a months time and I will be treating myself to a tint too. I really recommend trying out Benefit Brow Bar if you haven't already.
