This has been a week full of ups and downs when it comes to benefit and I… First I find out they opened right around the corner from me on 74th and 3rd and I’m UP. Then I find out they discontinued my cannot live without (let alone leave the house without) powder Georgia, and I’m way way DOWN. Clearly in need of a new beauty bounty- I saunter on over to the aborbs new boutique and despite my initial skepticism, was made over flawlessly by the super fab Sam Most- clearly (and now evenly toned) back UP again! While I’m a firm believer in the school of “if it aint broke don’t fix it” (and I never would’ve fixed my Georgia addiction because it made me a vision of peach perfection) I am beyond happy with my revamped regimen.
Never one to keep a secret, especially one that makes the world a more beautiful place–
Say hello to my sick new arsenal of skin perfection:
The POREfessional pro balm so adept at minimizing your pores you’ll wonder if you ever had them to begin with!
they’re Real! mascara which lengthens, curls, lifts and separates- my lashes have just reached a whole new level and its past my eyebrows!
“that gal” brightening face primer- yours (and mine) go-to for the ultimate in deliciously dewey skin.
hervana, a “good karma” face powder of shades lucky shell, divine peach, heavenly rose and berry delight for a totally enlightened tone.
high beam luminescent complexion enhancer- a perfect accent for cheek and brow bones, and what i found out today is it even works on your nose!
Benefit, founded by twin sisters Jean and Jane (former models and make-up artists) began creating cosmetics in the 70′s, opening up shop in sunny San Fran. The neighborhood venture and beauty “locker room” quickly became a mecca of make-up and go-to for gloss gossip that is now a thriving global beauty biz with over thirty boutiques across the world.
A favorite of mine for years, I actually found out about the brand while working for another ues local hot spot, Big Drop, and I’ve never looked back, or better!
