Early in May, Benefit Cosmetics and blog superstar Lilian Tahmasian of Butterflielilian teamed up to create a competition based around the Benefit products. The prize would go to four lucky girls who would spend a morning at the Paddington boutique with Lilian being pampered. To enter, you just had to comment on the Butterflielilian blog page about your favourite Benefit product. This was my entry:
I was quite proud of it once it was posted (even though I did use the word ‘spot’ twice).
The winners contact date came and went, and I thought I’d missed out. I didn’t give it any more thought. That is until an email from Lilian appeared in my inbox a week ago telling me I was a winner! I was to be at the Benefit store in Paddington on Monday 17th June. Oh how stoked I was!
I arrived at the store and, as usual at a Benefit store, was overwhelmed and excited by all the beautiful products in their unique packaging, the pale pink and custard yellow striped walls, the posters in ornate frames, and the little character busts on top of the shelves. I was like a kid in a candy store!
As we were escorted to the Brow Bar at the rear of the store we were offered mini cupcakes with Benefit character faces. Too Gorgeous!
We each had a brow tint and wax (mine have never looked so amazing!) before getting to play with the cosmetics during a makeup tutorial. The three of us prize winners, Lilian and the beautiful Benefit staff had plenty of time to chat about all things beauty and blogging; they were all absolutely gorgeous! The other two winners (the fourth winner didn’t show up) turned out to be bloggers as well; Clarissa of Clarissa Explains It All and Nella of Beauté Gazette.
We left with a special little purse shaped goody bag with some Benefit products for the road… I always LOVE getting makeup!
Benefit cosmetics are high quality, and designed to provide simple solutions for beauty dilemmas in true ‘Fake it ‘til you make it’ style. Every Benefit product I have tried has been an instant love.
