Sleek Brow Kit - A dupe for Benefit Brow Zing?

Did you know Sleek have recently come up with a new Brow Kit? Kudos to them for expanding on the range so well besides eye shadows and blushers.

They come in two shades, light and dark. Both kits have shades that are more warm to me than cool. I personally like the colour range as I like shades like coffee and chocolate brown for my brows than taupe's and greys which tend to make me look older.

I have the kit in Dark which is spot-on for my brunette hair. Girls with a darker mane can easily pull off this particular kit. 



Do you see the Benefit Brow Zing resemblance, minus the atrocious £23 price tag of course? 

It comes with a pigmented wax to fill in the brows, a complimentary setting powder to keep that wax from sliding off, two precise brushes, a uber cute mini tweezer and an in-built mirror all for £7.99. 


The powder is finely milled and does a pretty good job at setting the brows and keeping them in place throughout the day but the star of the kit is the wax which literally transforms brows from unruly to HD in seconds. 

I really don't experiment with my brows as I tend to be picky regarding the pencils I use for them (Kryolin is my favorite!) but I gave this a go and it surprisingly lasted a usual office day and a day at a theme park (think a tonne of water and wind) without budging. 


I am left more than impressed to be honest and would recommend the kit to any of you guys who haven't found the perfect solution for your brows till now.

When I first saw these I thought it looked very similar to Browzings too but just loads cheaper. I'll be trying out this as soon as my Browzings runs out :)
