Blogger Event | Benefit Cosmetics


After reading so many posts on other blogs about Benefit events I was so excited to finally get to attend one myself. Hooray. Thanks to Laura from Liparazzi blog for organising it. She is a super star.

I have been waiting for this event for what seems like an age. I was a little bit looking forward to what they had in store for us. Oh and maybe a little goodybag was on my mind too!

The event was held in Debenhams, Aberdeen. They have just launched their spanking new beauty hall, which is amazing and bright and lovely by the way. Very fab.

The benefit girls are absolutely amazing and lovely. I honestly can not praise their fun, friendly, outgoing attitudes enough. Seriously incredible benebabes.. blonde hair, black outfits, flawless skin and perfect eyebrows.

So on to the event. It started by the Benefit gals offering us some wee cakes and a glass of fizz (I went for fruit juice). Then on to a fabulous make up masterclass held by Claire the event co-ordinator from Benefit. I loved learning about products like Cha Cha Tint and seeing how simple they were to apply. I realised how great Benefit is for everyday use and perfect for quick easy application too.


After the masterclass we had a good test of the products. I am now lusting after That Gal, Most Glamorous Nudes Ever and Watts Up to name a few things.

One thing I realised it how fab the Benebabes eyebrows were. I am in serious need of a brow-over! Fortunately, we are lucky enough to have a Benefit brow bar in Aberdeen and I was super excited to learn we had been given a coupon for a free wax and tint at the bar. Yay, so look out for a review on this soon!

I noticed reading other posts about Benefit events that they often have a little competition during the event. About 5 minutes in to the masterclass the girls announced our competition. Whoever came up with the best # for Benefit events in Aberdeen would win some benefit products. I was definitely entering this. I came up with #benedeen and to my absolute joy I won. There were actually 3 of us  who came up with the same # believe it or not (must be a case of great minds think alike ha ha). The other girls were Kate and Amy.

At the end of the night we were given a lovely goody bag full of products for us to try...



Huge thanks to Laura, Claire, Jo and the rest of the Benefit girls in Aberdeen for a fab time. I can't wait 'till the next one.

  5. I love Benefit! I love their Hello Wow foundation, their moisturising day cream, lipsticks and cream eye shadows.

    I recently bought Fake Up too and it is now a staple in my make-up routine.

  9. I just adore Benefit. I use their mascara and brow zing everyday. This event looks like so much fun. I bet it was good to try other products too. I've always wondered what their primer is like. Great post, lovely photos too :) x
