Review: Benefit Brow Zings

benefit makeup benefit brow zings benefit brow kit

Browzers! (sorry..)I actually bought this little wonder back in December from the Benefit store in Covent Garden, I'd been eyeing it up for an age but had instead always opted for the cheaper alternatives. I'd been using the elf kit and the sleek brow kit but they always seemed a bit too orange for my ashy brows and as mine are quite unruly the wax didn't do that great a job of holding them in place.
But then brow zings entered my life. I entered the store knowing what I wanted to buy and said right away It was brow zings I was interested in, I'm so easily swayed at makeup counters and I didn't want this happening! Anyway the lovely assistant applied both the light and medium shades to ze brows so I could decide which one I wanted, I prefer a slightly darker-than-my-hair and more defined brow so opted for medium and I'm rather happy I did!
The kit itself is a sturdy little compact which is easy for on the go or to take on holiday, it includes a brow wax, a brow powder, a hard angled brush to apply the wax, a blending powder brush, and a teenie set of tweezers for on the go plucking. Up until a few weeks ago I was using the hard angled brush without any issues but I've since been using the real techniques brow brush which I'm finding easier due to the size. After taming my brows I use the powder brush to fill them in which sticks to the wax for a longer lasting result, and wins! You're left with the perfect eyebrow.
Before purchasing this I read that some people found the wax colour to be a bit too red toned, to be honest it does come out with a twinge of red but it's not really enough to put me off, and besides I've yet to find a kit with a non orange/ready colour to it anyway.
At £23.50 it's not exactly the most budget savvy of products but it's definitely long lasting and worth investing in, I've used mine pretty much everyday since December and I don't think I'm even half way through it yet.

And finally, without sounding high horsey I'm just going to throw it out there that buying benefit products from Ebay isn't the greatest of ideas - yes there are some sellers that are genuine but I've heard and seen so many reviews of fake products where the makers have literally gone all out to make it look as genuine as possible. If you want more info on this/tips on how to spot a fake then have a peek at Fee's post and Annette's post.



  1. I really need to start looking after my brows. A fringe hides a multiple of sins!

  2. I might try this next as I need something new for my brows :)

  3. I have longed for this for so long but never bought it, im now going to buy it rite this second haha x

  4. Looks pretty good! Lovely review :)

  5. This looks amazing! I really want one! I might try the MUA version first to see if I get on with it :) Great post!


  6. I use the light version of this, and think it's amazing. It's the first brow thing I've ever used, so thought, if I'm gonna commit to doing this, it needs to be a half-decent thing. I'm still trying to work out the right shape for my face, but Im always envious of yours - and now I know your secret! Agreed, it's a little red, but once you've got the powder on it's alright

  7. Haha, Browzers! I love puns ;) Thanks so much for the review- glad you're loving this! I have super sparse brows and my holy grail product is the Anastasia Brow Powder Duo! xo


  8. Hi, thanks so much for the mention! Really appreciate it :)

    As for Brow Zings, I really REALLY want it, but I'm not so sure just yet at such an extreme price! I had the mini sample of the wax in the Smokin' Eyes kit but used it all up in a few months, and I'm usually pretty good with making my makeup last for ages!

    I'll really reconsider though!

  9. I love this product for finishing but have to use a powder first. I have hardly any hair and my brows are much lighter than my hair so need lots of colour! But the browzings definitely smooth them into shape:) Check out 'My Beauty Fix' post on my blog - ;)
