Benefit fall school...

The Benefit fall school was absolutely delightful!

The trainer was amazing! Not only was she hilarious, she provided lots of info on new launches, tips & tricks, mixologies, and did demos of top selling products that are handbag essentials!

And...OF COURSE some of them were included in the goody bags!

1. Girl Meets Pearl
Liquid Highlighter
Golden pink colour
Smells delectable with a hint of Raspberry and Chamomille

You can apply over highlighting areas
On top of Benefit's Some Kind-a Gorgeous Oil-Free Cream to Powder Foundation
Mix it in with your favourite liquid foundation
Great for every skin tone
Retails for $34 CDN

Lip & Cheek Stain
Rosey Red Colour
Gives you a subtle flush of colour on your cheeks
Waterproof & Kiss♥-proof ;)
Instead of applying the product directly onto the face, apply the product on top of brush before face application
Exfoliate any dead skin cells on top of your lips before applying tint
Wear it under your favourite red lipstick ;)

3.They're Real!
Jet-Black colour
Specially designed brush & formula that LENGTHENS & VOLUMIZES

Eye Primer
Beige colour
