Meilily Hot Happenings & Product Launch Details: Benefit Cosmetics Fall 2010!

I recently attended a fun Benefit Cosmetics preview party in San Francisco, and I got to try out and take home new Fall makeup from Benefit. I even got my brows done during the event and loved it! Benefit sure throws a mean party – cupcakes, cocktails, and all!

Now, I’m actually kinda excited about these new Benefit Fall products, because they’re quite fun, and would probably work with a variety of skintones!

Here are the Fall launch details and photos…

I was thrilled to meet the very down-to-earth Annie Ford Danielson (about whom I cannot stop raving), daughter of one of the Benefit Cosmetics founding sisters! Annie, wearing a lovely Filippa K dress, demonstrated the new Fall products, and I got to chat with her about growing up with Benefit Cosmetics and jet-setting to store openings in Russia, Mexico, and China.

Thanks to Benefit Cosmetics for a great party and preview!

If you’ve tried any of the new Fall Benefit products, let me know what you think!

Hope you enjoyed this Fall preview and photos! from Meilily

P.S. I just found out that free-standing Benefit Cosmetics Boutiques provide spa-type services like spray-tan applications (using a proprietary formula), brow shaping, and more. Who knew?!

I’m so jealous! Looks like you had a great time here! SF is not that far from where I am, but parking is killer! >< I'd love to visit Benefit's boutique one day. :D

Hi Jenn! It was a really fun time and the boutique was so cute inside- It’s worth a trip to SF sometime, but parking is hard in that area (a little easier up the hill a ways). Let me know if you ever want to go!

[...] I attended the Benefit blogger event to preview their three new Fall 2010 products, and had a great time! [...]
