Benefit Blogger Event!

Last Thursday Camille and I were lucky enough to attend another Benefit Blogger Event. Honestly, it was probably the best event I have been to so far!

Beautiful window display!
It was held at the new Benefit counter that has just opened up in Smith & Caugheys Newmarket, and the counter itself is just so pretty! All the products are arranged beautifully, and the whole feel of it is both luxurious and fun.

Mixing the perfect colour for my brows!
The night started off with me getting my eyebrows tinted and waxed, which is something I’ve always wanted to do there but just haven’t been able to get around to yet. Needless to say, I was pretty stoked. 
The lovely Michelle, started off by mixing two colours to achieve the best shade of tint for my eyebrows. I used to tint my eyebrows all the time by myself, but honestly – it’s so much more relaxing having someone else do it for you! The colour she mixed turned out to be perfect for me, so we were off to a great start!

Waxing those brows!
Then came the waxing. Which is where I experienced the awkward moment when you don’t realise you have a monobrow ,until they rip it off. Hahaha! The waxing itself was quick and pretty painless to be honest, I would definitely get it done again. They finish by tweezing any stray hairs that the wax didn’t pick up.

After that they sent me off to the wonderful Keyla, who fixed up my makeup for me and covered any redness I had from the wax. Yay!

Foundation time!
By the time I had finished getting pampered, the demonstrations started. They demonstrated the brow service I had just experienced, and also did a lovely makeup demo using one of the new Christmas sets. This is when we found out that we were getting one of these amazing sets in our goodie bags! So exciting!

Makeup demo set up - including the kit we got!
Amongst all the excitement I got to mingle with some of my fellow beauty bloggers, which was seriously awesome. We also got to chat with all the benebabes and learn more about some of the other products… and before I left I managed to buy a set of lip glosses. My reasoning (I always have excuses for buying more makeup!) is that I don’t actually have many lip glosses, because I hate the feeling of most of them. But these feel really nice, so I’m very happy.

Inside the goodie bag!
As I said above, we were all completely spoilt with our goodie bags. I am still overwhelmed by their generosity and I can’t wait to review everything! 

And because I couldn't resist, here's a few more pics! 

All in all, it was an amazing evening and I can't thank the lovely ladies at Benefit New Zealand enough for inviting us along. 

Thanks for viewing!
