Benefit Browzings DUPE

Hello there,

As with the previous eyebrow post I shall open with my “I have wonky eyebrows” disclaimer, so judge not the product on the back of my disasterbrows! 🙂 Right, now that’s out of the way lets get started. 

It’s becoming all too apparent that if I’m not in work then I’ll most likely be in Superdrug shopping or making mental notes of future things I’ll be shopping for.

On one such venture I came across this MUA Pro-Brow Kit, it was a super thrifty £3.50, considering I’d paid *deep breath* £28 for the Benefit one a while back it was a no brainer to try this.

Talk about value for money my friends!! You get a teeny tweezers & then also a wee dual ended brush, one side is for applying the brow powder the other for the gel.  There’s two different shades, the upper left, is dark brown & upper right is a lighter brown (which I’m using).  Then the lower left is a base powder for all over your eyelid, it’s advertised as a highlighter but I just swished it all over.  Then finally the bottom right is the gel which prevents any intrepid strays from wandering off the beaten track.

Here I am without any of the eyebrow product, wearing just foundation.

And with my brows done (& everything else)

I can’t say enough good things about this.  The primary one being it’s THREE POUNDS FIFTY!!!! Sorry Benefit but I shall not be back for anymore of your Browzings, I’ve quite firmly & rightly switched my eyebrow allegiance to MUA.
Have you tried this out? Or do you know of another dupe?

Thanks so much for stopping by.

The Colour Purple

Hey folks,

Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet of late. Between working, buying, wrapping & giving out presents I haven’t had much time for anything else.  So I’m making some time today. It dawned on me last week that my favourite colour is purple, but if you were to ask me I’d say “I don’t have a favourite colour” then I looked at everything I own & a considerable amount of my clothes etc. are purple so subliminally it must be my favourite.

Like I mentioned I was working a lot & was actually on shift Christmas Eve – 26th December.  My super lovely friend Céara took great pity on me & went bugaloo on the aul present buying front & I was spoiled rotten.

One of the things she got me was a hair chalk by Urban Colour, in yes you’ve guessed it . .  Purple!

Here I am (in a purple top with a purple backdrop) after colouring in my blonde bonce.  It takes seconds to do & is alot of fun.  You can seal it with some hairspray, I do recommend doing this or else your hands & anything else your hair comes into contact with will be covered (as mine were because I didn’t have hairspray handy.)
I only put a little bit on but you could colour all your hair in if you fancy. You’ll also need to wash it out as it makes your hair feel very dry so you’d have a mission brushing it afterwards.

I also road tested my new lippy from MUA.  It’s in a deep purple shade called Kooky in matt. It lasts along time but I did notice it wore off on the inside of my lips, so it kind of looked like I was chugging a lot of red wine.  It wasn’t an issue as I’d just reapply some more, & at a bargain of only £3 I really couldnt complain.
Have you a favourite colour? Or have you tried either of these products?

As always I love to hear back from you all & I hope you all had a lovely holiday.
