Last week I went to London for a day for the fabulous Debenhams S/S 2012 (more on which later!) and, while there, had the opportunity to get my brows done by Benefit. I wasn’t too sure what they’d be able to do, as my brows (I thought) were pretty much in order – but, five odd minutes later, I had definitely been shown the light!

Isn’t this amazing? Image via (obviously) Elle‘s Tumblr.

My brows were waxed – which also made me nervous as I’m a two-year threading convert – and I was pleasantly surprised by both the pain level and the results. As for the former, it was really minimal. That’s not to say that it wasn’t sore – any exercise in which hair is torn from your body is probably going to hurt a little, but really, isn’t fashion pain?! It was about a three on a 1-10 scale (where, incidentally, laser hair removal is a 12).

As for the latter point, my eyebrows look amazing. Not as amazing as that pic, but really, really good – and for the first time in my entire life, people have commented on them entirely independently. I have a great arch and, with a brush and a little brow powder, they could pass for model eyebrows. Which, really, is all I could hope for on this earth! Seriously top marks; I would recommend the Benefit brow experience to anyone!
