Brow Bling by Benefit

Every now and then I see a beauty release that confuses me a little, such as the Benefit Bling Brow. Great alliteration, but do I want bling for my brows?

Everyone has been talking about brows recently, they seem to be the hot topic. Benefit do brows really well and I’d recommend their Brow Bars if you are looking for somewhere to get them done. For the party season Benefit have collaborates with Swarovski to help you decorate your eyebrows with crystals both at home with their Bling Brow set but also in store with the Bling Brow Service at their Brow bars.

There a variety of colours and patterns to choose from, you can apply the crystals through the brows, below the brows, a simple on right at the end or cover the entire brow in crystals.

The in-store prices range from £4-16 depending on the amount of bling you want and the at home hit made up of 52 crystals and a mini tweezer retails for £19.50. I had the service in store as well as trying the set at home for myself and although I think it can look pretty, I’m not sure I would go out in it.

They’re really easy to apply and apparently last all day but I’m not sure anyone at my Christmas party would understand me having crystals in my brows and I’m not sure I understand it either. I think it would work really well for a festival or for something quite fun and casual (instead of neon paint maybe) but it’s a little tacky in my opinion for a Christmas Party.

I can see why people are attracted to these but I personally wouldn’t spend £19.50 on them nor would I wear them out. They’re fun but also a little childish in my opinion. If they are something you are interested in I’m sure you could pick up some much cheap gems in Claire’s, I wouldn’t worry too much about them being Swarovski or not as they will probably end up down the drain at the end of the evening.

What do you think of the Benefit Brow Bling? Is it something you would try?

    I think they're a bit of fun for like festivals and stuff but I don't think for everyday event they make sense… And they're a little over priced!

    These look fun but I have to agree with you, I wouldn't pay for something like this!

    I wouldn't wear them anywhere but a festival. I want to look nice and classy at a christmas party and I don't think this fits in with that. What a strange Christmas release…. xoxo

    When I first heard about this release I didn't really get it. It's a very luxurious product for something that, as you said, will end up lost or down the drain. I definitely think that I would be more inclined to pick up some gems online and save the money.

    Hmm, not so sure about these. I saw them in store yesterday and was really baffled by them, don't think I'll be purchasing xx

    I think they'd be fun for a festival look but I wouldn't wear them out on a normal day or anything. Definitely wouldn't spend the money on them x

    I don't really understand this concept. Definitely not for daily use, I guess for festivals or parties it could go down well x

    Eek! Agreed! For a festival, perfect, but for a Christmas party with family? Not such a good idea! At £19.50 too, it's a tad expensive for what you could by at hobby craft for £1 😛
