Eyebrows | Benefit Brow Zings

Once upon a time, I used absolutely nothing on my eyebrows. I know crazy right? I don't know why, I just never thought anything of it! Until a few years ago when I was cornered by the Benefit lady in Debenhams and she scuttled me over to her little stool and carried out a HUGE makeover. I'm not one for heavy make-up, I just don't like it. I tried a MAC foundation once and literally felt like I had cement on my face. Anyway given that, there was only one product that really stood out to me: Brow Zings. Honestly, I was blown away. I couldn't believe how different it made me look! If you've not heard of brow zings before, it's basically just a brow shaping kit - simples. 
Being a Benefit product, it's not cheap. It comes with a nice heavy price tag of £22.50. However this little compact is such a treat; it comes complete with an inbuilt mirror, two application brushes and a pair of tweezers. Which in my eyes, is great value for money. It works differently to any other brow enhancer I've tried before, inside the little compact you'll find (along with the other goodies) a palette. On one side there is a dark gel, and on the other a powder. The gel is there to help shape and define your brows, and the powder is used to set the brows and fill in any gaps. I believe your meant to use the gel first followed by the powder, however I dab my brush into the gel and then directly into the powder and apply it that way. I feel it gives a more natural look rather than painting your brows with the gel :) It also has fantastic staying power, you won't find it rubbing off halfway through the day, or smudging down your face. Another plus is the products longevity, I've had this for way over 6 months and I've barely touched the surface!


(Excuse the state of my eyebrows, I'm currently in the process of making them a bit thicker, hence the stragglers!)
This kit comes in 3 different shades, so it's suitable for blondie's too! My shade is in Medium, so there's still room to go darker if that's the look you like!

What do you think lovey's? Have you tried this product before? Or do you have a favourite brow-shaper that I should know about? :)

This looks really good! I have been recommended this so I definitely think I will give it a go :) I would probably be medium too! Your eyebrows look lovely x

hannahbabeyxo said...

I have this but I have never even opened it! I really need to start taking more of an effort with my eye brows! Yours look great with this! X

WonderfulYou said...

Thanks Becky :) it's definitely worth the money, I have had this for months and have barely scraped the surface!xx

WonderfulYou said...

Ahh Hannah, go go goooo open it right away haha :) xxx

Emma McIntyre said...

Might have to try this, I'd be medium brown too! I have naturally fair eyebrows and whenever people see me naturally, they ask me if my natural hair colour is blonde. It's not, it's medium brown so I have such a fuss every morning doing trying to get my eyebrows the right colour. xxx

WonderfulYou said...

Hi Emma :) my eyebrows are so fair! My hair is naturally quite dark, so it looks a bit silly. I find this medium shade to be the perfect match :) xx

Laura. said...

what a cute little kit :) i love the packaging, great post! x

Lara said...

I still haven't found the perfect eyebrow kit to use, perhaps because I normally don't pay a lot of attention to my eyebrows. So maybe I should try this one, because your eyebrows looks so perfect! xx

WonderfulYou said...

thank you Laura :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Ahh thank you Lara! I really don't pay much attention to mine either. I haven't plucked mine for months! (probably shouldn't admit that haha). But this really is a fab product, go for it :) xx

Claire M said...

I love brow kits, I feel so much more put together with my brows done properly! I use the Sleek Brow kit and Gosh Brow pen together. The Sleek kit is so similar to the Benefit one, but for 1/3 of the price, I love it! I like the Gosh pen too, but it's a bit strange using a felt tip on your brows, and the colours aren't perfect. x

Katie Frank said...

Wow this is just genius. Just look at your eyebrows! it looks fantastic! wow. i want this too.

Rebecca Allison said...

This was the first eyebrow product I tried; this time last year actually and I still have a fair amount left! I think that Brow Zings is really worth the money! Your pictures really do the product justice - they are so clear and lovely! I am glad I found your blog, its really nice!

Hev said...

I really want to try this eyebrow kit! I'm currently using a Sleek one but it doesn't last as long on me as I imagine the Benefit one might?!
Love the photos too, can tell your a photo whizz ;) xx

Carina said...

I brought this before but found it was too 'waxy' for me.. I keep going back to ELF or HD brows :)

Kerry said...

I have a post on this too! It really is amazing! The best brow product I've tried. My post is kinda rusty though because it was one of my first's, lol.

I've just bought the Sleek ones not too long ago, they only have a light and dark though...no medium so it's kinda one extreme or the other. :/
I'm thinking of doing a comparison post of them.
But yeah, I LOVE that stuff! I had my old one for 2 years and my current one for ages too and it's still going strong! :]

Btw, I LOVE your blog and YouTube channel! Tbh, I was getting bored of YouTube but I've watched all your videos. ^^ You're great, keep up the good work!

Laura-Marie Roffey said...

I use the Gosh pen and the Gosh eyebrow kit in which you get 3 different shades, a wax and a two sided applicator brush, can't remember the price I think it was around £6-£8? But it's really good if you want to try something way cheaper when this one runs out! x

WonderfulYou said...

Ooh thanks lovely! I've still got another 6 months or so out of this bad boy, but I'll definitely give that a go when I run out! xx

WonderfulYou said...

Thank you Sophie :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

hey lovey! awhh thank you so much, that really means a lot. What a great idea, i'd LOVE to see a comparison on them :) let me know when the post goes live!xx

WonderfulYou said...

It can be a bit waxy, that's why I blend the two together :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Haha Hev, I wish! Slowly getting there I hope! You definitely should, it's got great staying power xx

WonderfulYou said...

Awh thank you so much Becky, I really appreciate that :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Doooo it!x

WonderfulYou said...

It seems to take forever doesn't it Daniella? May have to go and get them shaped professionally!xx

WonderfulYou said...

Awh thank you Katie :) always love your comments xx

WonderfulYou said...

Hi Claire! I've never tried a pen before, I imagine it's for a much more dramatic look? Will have to check out the sleek kit :) xx

Belle said...

I use this in blonde and love it! It's the perfect little kit
xx

Jessica said...

I really want to try this. I don't like the "scouse brow" look, but this looks more me.

Great Review hun! I think I've made my mind up I have to have this. xx

Rhi & Rach said...

Lovely Post :) I remember the trying this on at the Benefit Counter once, but the lady used brunette shades on my eyebrows when I'm blonde :S
I was just wondering if the brushes included were this were actually of good quality or whether you needed to use a separate brush with them?

Thank you :)

Rhi

WonderfulYou said...

Fab isn't it Belle :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

It's definitely a lot more subtle Jessica! :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

haha, hope you love it as much as I do! :) xx

WonderfulYou said...

Hi Rhi, to be honest, I find the brushes are of great quality. I especially love the angled brush for precision! :) xx

Gemma Satire said...

I need a brow shaper stat, I'd love to have brows like yours...your whole eye make up is really pretty! Dead jel. I actually got a free sample of this Benefit one so I need to find it somewhere in my room and use it! Why do I lose everything...

I use to swear by this kit but now I go back and forth between this and my NYX brow kit, fair warning though the wax in the NYX kit isnt the best to work with.

Pernille said...

i really love benefit products and i'd love to try the set
but i just think that it's way too expensive for an eyebrow kit :/

KeyboardLet's just put this out there: the iPad 2 in terms of versatility, speed, and image quality day or night, still or video sexcam is in the home. In fact, its four corners seem just as attainable as before, helped by Apple shifting the display down just a few months' time, and every time you use the handset for.
The iPad 2 fully delivers when it comes to battery life,
but the media attention fanned the flames of fear of crime.

Otherwise, there's very little difference on the back end, you can see each matchup. I am annoyed Now, sexcam however, is a welcome touch, but it's an unusual combo.
It feels great in your hands?

One day it could be you that is not a virgin, he may fleshlight

Instead, we'd love a way to spend quality time with the 11. These photo restoration services also enhance the quality of life as we age.

I swear by this everyday now. I wasn't always a fan, as I thought personally using both powder and gel made my brows too dark, but now if I just use the powder lightly it gives great coverage. Great post chick x
