Don’t worry about your Christmas Party Bling this year, Benefit have you covered. Benefit are excited to announce they’ve teamed up with bling experts Swarovski Crystal and are getting ready to launch Bling Brows which is a new limited edition at counter service & a take home DIY kit that will transform your brows. So get excited for a little Bling this Party Season. These won’t be to everyones taste but its fun to experiment & these Bling Kits give you the opportunity to create your own look.
I was invited to the Manchester launch of Bling Brow* where I was lucky enough to meet International Spokesperson Jared Bailey (a true brow master) & Lisa Potter Dixon, Benefit’s Head Makeup Artist and Brow Expert (all round gorgeous lady). I heard all about the Bling Brow Kits & the buzz surrounding them. Benefit are already experts in all things Brows and for a limited time this will be a new string to their bow.
From November 1st & as long as stocks last (this is ltd edition) many of the Benefit Brow Bars & Boutiques Nationwide will be providing the Bling Brow Service so all through the Christmas Party Season you will be able to head to a participating Benefit Counter & chose your Bling Brow style & let the Benebabes Bling your brows with Swarovski Crystals which come in 8 pretty colours. There will be three Bling Brow options available at counters, ‘Touch O’ Bling’, ‘Over-The-Top Bling’, and ‘Big-Time Bling these range in price from £4 for the more subtle to £16 for more daring. Let me know what option you’d go for?
At the event I went for the more subtle option of three Greige crystals below my brow in Benefit Bling Brow & really loved the way it turned out.
Eyebrow embellishments is a trend we’ve seen on the catwalks over the years, like at the Chanel Show in Paris and on many a celebrity like the Kardashian’s and Gwen Stefani. Benefit’s Bling Brow Kits have made the trend accessible and they’re a great way of making your festive makeup more glitzy & head turning. So will you be getting your bling on this Party Season?
The at home DIY Bling Brow Kits come with 52 varying sized Swarovski Crystals, a pair of cute mini tweezers for applying them & a cute Tips & Tricks booklet (which Benefit are famous for), so if you’re not too sure on what look to create this booklet will give you ideas & helpful step by step instructions.
The Crystals are so easy to apply and the good news is they’re self adhesive & even better they’re re usable (just reapply them with lash glue), I found them to be secure and comfortable to wear. I couldn’t even feel them on my brow bone. Benefit have said they will last up to 3 days, thats some staying power. I have the Rose Gold Kit & I think this option is right on trend, Rose Gold is beautiful but still quite subtle so thats perfect for me. The Rose Gold catches the light gives your look the perfect amount of sparkle. I was worried I would feel a little old to wear these but I have to say I loved the look & if you are braver than me then you could incorporate this in to your daytime look too, who say’s this has to a be a party only look.
I’m interested to see the looks people create once these kits are launched next month. I have already seen some great takes on Benefits suggestions. I love To Become A Mum’s bling creations, some great ideas in her post for looks you can create.
At £19.50 I think these kits are quite pricey but if you’re careful with the Crystals you can reuse them & they are a very fun way of giving your look something special. Oh & as with most things Benefit the cute tin itself can be re used once you’ve had your wear of the Crystals. I plan on keeping my everyday jewellery in mine. Also the mini tweezers in this kit are so sweet & I know I will be getting a lot of use out of these. Once the Party Season is over they will be a permanent fixture in my travel makeup bag!
Keep your eye out for them being released on November 1st across Benefit Counters Nationwide & also online at www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk
