Benefit x Birchbox Beauty Bash Recap
Birchbox and Benefit Cosmetics chose me as one of a handful of women to host a Beauty Bash for Wing Women Weekend. I invited five of my girls – including Shanique of RantRaveRandom and Ariel Cherie of Overquirked and Unfazed – over for a girls night of makeup and fun!
Benefit gave us samples of some of their hottest products including a Pore Refining Primer, Lollitint cheek/lip stain, They’re Real Mascara and the new They’re Real Eyeliner, to try out and take home.
We all agreed we loved the primer but were torn about the Lollitint. It’s bubblegum pink and super sheer which meant you need multiple layers and precise application when used on the cheeks. As a lip stain, it didn’t work too well on any of the darker girls.
Since it was a girls night, we didn’t only try out makeup. We obviously spent a good chunk of time playing games – yes there were prizes!! – and gabbing about everything from skincare to relationships and celebrities. Naturally there were plenty of selfies and pics for the ‘gram!
What girls night is complete without adult beverages and sweets? I treated my guests to a wine and dessert spread full of goodies including these DELICIOUS cake pops from A Taste of Happy.
We had so much fun I’ve already decided to host similar parties in the future. It’s great to be able to bring together my girls to share one of my favorite things – makeup!
