Pluck them good!

the-vintage-cosmetic-company-rose-gold-slanted-tweezers-review - 1As a blogger, I felt as a failure for not being a huge fan of all things rose gold. Let’s just say that in the recent months it grew on me, and I blame my Coach watch for that.

No surprise I was ecstatic to meet with the lovely guys from The Vintage Cosmetic Company for the launch of a new addition to their pretty rose gold tools range: the slanted tweezers.

the-vintage-cosmetic-company-rose-gold-slanted-tweezers-review - 3I’m a big plucker as I cannot stand hair, so this baby was a welcome addition.

Obviously they look pretty, with the engraved brand and slightly brushed stainless steel, but don’t be fooled by the shiny pink: these tweezers are very sturdy, easy to hold and with a fab grip on hair, removing from the root and not breaking them.

The slant size is great for general plucking, and if you flip to use the high side, you get great precision.

The tweezers were part of last month’s Pink Parcel‘s box of treats. Pretty and useful – just my kind of thing.

You can get The Vintage Cosmetic Company Slanted Tweezers from their website and retailers nationwide, such as Boots, and they costs £8.

Brows, brows, brows, Gimme Brow

benefit-gimme-brow-review - 1Since the first time I had my eyebrows filled, I never looked back. It did feel a bit weird at the time, but soon, weird became not having them filled.

I am trying new products all the time, and found a little gem in Benefit’s Gimme Brow Gel. That’s because it is so easy to apply, last a long time and really, the effect is just great.

Gimme Brow is a gel with buildable micro-fibre particles that stick to your own eyebrow hair and skin, filling it up and making it look fuller, and thicker.

Because it is a gel, it also keeps the brow in place, shaping them too.

benefit-gimme-brow-review - 2The tiny little tapered brush spreads the gel beautifully on the brows and its precision tip does a great job of shaping them; creating a fab lift and defined arch is easy-peasy.

It is water resistant and I can vouch for the panels findings of brows looking fuller and natural – and that’s the main thing for me: they are full, thick, but very natural, not painted on.

Here you can see my right eyebrow, with Gimme Brow and my sad left one, with nothing!

Plus, it is soooo easy to apply, easier than any other beloved brow product I ever used, so perfect for every day use. It can also be used on top of a filler (powder or pencil) for extra sharp effect.

The Benefit Gimme Brow costs £18.50, is available in two shades (Light/Medium and Medium/Dark, which I am using) and can be bought from House of Fraser.
