12 Days of Giftmas - Billion Dollar Brows ¦ Giveaway

On the fifth day of Giftmas my true love gave to me, brows that fill others with envy...

I recently attended a Billion Dollar Brows event with their founder Natalie Plain upon the Irish launch of the brand in stores and learned all about them. Previously, they had been exclusively on sale in salons but now they're available in Boots and other retailers. I also got their full range of products to play around with. And while I had enjoyed the few bits from them that I had tried before, my affection for the brand was really cemented once I got to give the rest of the line a whirl.

Which is why I had to include them in the 12 Days of Giftmas.

"But what, pray tell, might this 12 Days of Giftmas be?" you're probably asking.

If you didn't read yesterday's post about REN Skincare, let me explain it again!

The 12 Days of Giftmas is a project that occurred to me last week. An idea that I ambitiously decided to go through with very last minute - I must be a lunatic. It's a sort of advent calendar for me and my readers, a way of saying thank you for reading and rewarding you in a small way. For the first 12 days of December, I will be writing a post every day on a shop, brand or item that would make good gifts. This is instead of the long gift ideas posts I've done in the past and offers a more in-depth look at some amazing companies and things. To complement each post, I've also teamed up with these fantastic brands and will be giving something away each day! So, the 12 Days of Giftmas will give you some gift ideas and the potential to win something for a loved one (or yourself!).

The individual products include their clear Eyebrow GelBrow Powder and the Universal Eyebrow Pencil (universal because the shade of brown is so light that it can be used as lightly or as heavily as needed to match almost all hair tones) which would all make great stocking fillers for the beauty and brow addicts in your life.

However, their kits are really the perfect thing as gifts for co-workers, family, pals and Secret Santas alike. The 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit (RRP €34.00) includes their brow brush and powder and is equated to "putting your hair in a ponytail", i.e. it offers quick, easy, neat results without any fuss. It's a great entry-level kit as a gift which won't break the bank but will give someone all they need to get started. The Best Sellers Kit (€68.00), meanwhile, has the universal pencil, gel, a dual-ended pencil for concealing and highlighting, and a smudge brush for more advanced, elaborate brow prep. This one is for the real beauty lovers in your life, those serious about their brows or just someone you really like. And, for the beauty fans that love a bit of beauty innovation or tech, the Brow Buddy Kit (€31.00) is ideal. It includes their Brow Buddy tool which allows you to measure your brows to perfection and shows where you need to pluck or fill in, a pencil for marking it out and a step-by-step guide.

Having tried everything on both myself and family and friends, I'd recommend all the sets but the Best Sellers kit is really the most versatile if you have to choose one. It also seems a bit pricey but is really good value for what you get in it!

So, if you want to give this amazing brand a go, why not enter my giveaway of a special limited edition gift set that isn't available to purchase? It includes a BDB cosmetic bag filled with some of their best-loved products.
