This post falls into the former category, as I write about two products from w7 Cosmetics.
I wanted to give credit to the lady who reviewed this and made me want to buy it, but I can’t find her to credit! Whoever you are, thank you!
Finding a great dupe is a great way to save money on your makeup purchasing each month. This Absolute Lashes Mascara cost me £3.25 from eBay and took 2-3 days to arrive, versus £6.95 from the w7 website… if you want to buy it from there, you can shop it here.
Now in terms of the packaging alone, it’s a great dupe for ‘They’re real… Honest!’ mascara, but what about the brush and the application, I hear you ask?
Well some have taken photos of the brushes side by side which you can look at here, but as I did not wish to part with nearly £20 for a mascara I did not have Benefit’s on hand! From my point of view, the brushes are near identical, lots of bristles but not too close together so the lashes aren’t coated too thickly. It applies as well as Benefit’s too, and i was completely ecstatic with this product for the price – my makeup bag will never go without it!!!
Now onto the Brow Parlour kit. This was another eBay purchase, at £3.87 inc postage. The packaging is adorable and would make an excellent addition to someone’s Benefit/Soap and Glory collection based on that alone!
Now, I have forked out before for Benefit’s brow products, and they are good don’t get me wrong. But Boot’s 17 range does the best value for money brow kit out there. This Brow Parlour kit just doesn’t quite cut it. The brushes are useless (not to it’s detriment as I never use kit brushes), and the powders don’t transfer as well. The clear brow wax though is actually a pretty good idea. I stuck to using my 17 kit and my Makeup Revolution brow brush.
Do you have any great dupes you always go back to?
