Benefit Brow Bar in my home town of Middlesbrough. I was really excited to be invited for three main reasons; I love Benefit as a brand, I'm obsessed with eyebrows and because the event was in Middlesbrough. Nothing ever happens up North, and it's amazing that things are finally starting to happen up here for bloggers.
Firstly, the makeup counter in Debenhams has been completely revamped, it is all pink, white and pretty - very much true to Benefit's style and image. Instead of having just one central counter, it now has lots of 'pods' where products are displayed and treatments can be carried out, there's even a separate treatment room where you will soon be able to get a spray tan! The girls who work there are lovely too, and stand out a mile from their competitors in their bright pink Benefit t-shirts.
We were really spoiled and looked after by everyone who was hosting the event. I was given the full 'Benefit eyebrow experience' which included my eyebrows being tinted, waxed, cut, plucked and shaped... as a big brow obsessive, this was a dream come true, and I am SO happy with the results. I will 100% be returning to the counter to have them re-done next month. I also had a full makeover by Rita, one of the Benefit area managers, who was super lovely and talked me through every single product she used (more about this in my next post).
I want to say a big thank you to everyone involved in the event; Shell, Leanne, Rita, Ben and April, and the other bloggers; Ray, Becky, Tiffeny and Cat - it was a great day!
