Beauty Party hosted by Gilt City, HPNOTIQ Harmonie & Benefit

I must admit before last week I never paid much attention to Benefit Cosmetics!

I must admit before last week I never paid much attention to Benefit Cosmetics! ¬†While out making my rounds, I had several encounters with the brand and I’m happy to say I’m Benefit’s newest fan!! Last week Benefit, Gilt City & Hpnotiq Harmonie hosted a beauty party at Benefit’s Armitage location…

I’m glad I got a chance to sneak a few shots before it got SUPER BUSY!

I decided to have my makeup done during the event…

Nina was my makeup artist…

I stressed to her how I hate the idea of looking overtly made up, I told her I like a more natural look and she gave me exactly what I asked for!

See, really natural…just how I like it!! (By the way check out my brows, I’ve never had those before…I’ll tell you more about that later)!!

To achieve this look Nina used the following products

I absolutely adore benetint, porefessional and girl meets pearl!!

So what’s a party with out cocktails, riggghhht?

Hpnotiq’s BFF Harmonie was in the building!!!!

I finally got a chance to try her and she was excellent, you and your friends will have a ball making cocktails with Harmonie!!

I just love the way Hpnotiq presents their products, I swear they make me want to open my purse and buy whatever they are selling! Geez (see another example of Hpnotiq’s great presentation and marketing)! I swear they know how to sell a product!

Gotta have desserts right?

I have so much more to show you from my Benefit experience but I’ll post that later this week!

  • So glad you’re a Benefit’s fan, too. They are one of my faves. Love the packaging & names, but mostly love the actual products. And you picked some of my faves: Benetint, Porefessional, & Girl Meets Pearl. I want to try the new tint in a Peach shade for summer. I will have to call my Benefit’s man David!
