About 2 weeks ago, I attended an event put on by Birchbox and Benefit Cosmetics in downtown San Francisco. I’ve been to some of their events before (which do not disappoint) so when I got this invite, I wasn’t going to miss out. First off, you’re greeted with champagne. Done. End of story. We could end this blog post here, but we won’t. I mean who doesn’t like shopping and champagne?! Sounds like heaven to me.
One of the main perks of the night (besides the bubbles) was getting your brows done by the Benefit brow girls themselves. They are just SO good at ALL things brows. It’s one of those stores where you walk in and everyone that works there has the most amazing eyebrows that are exactly even and the exact same color. and shape. How is that possible?! Well, trust me. They know what they are doing. And also, how adorable is the room where you get your brows waxed? I want that wallpaper in my house someday.
The other amazing takeaway from these events is that they always give you a Birchbox filled with goodies before you leave and $35 credit to spend in the store that night. Some of my all time favorite products are from Benefit so having a little store credit to spend is a perk for me. My most recent favorite Benefit product that I’ve been using daily is their Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel. Putting this on your eyebrows gives them rich color and also gives your brows a thicker and fuller look. I also talked about this gel in my Current Beauty Favorites post a while back.
I’ve been using the original POREfessional Face Primer for years now and decided to try the new gel like formula. The gel is good, but I think I still like the original primer better. Sometimes there’s nothing better than the OG.
Overall, I had such an amazing time! I walked out with a bag full of beauty goodies, a belly full of champagne and cupcakes and some gorgeous looking brows. Thanks to all the girls at Benefit Cosmetics on Chestnut Street in SF, especially to Stephanie for managing my brows and to Michelle for chatting with me about products & store favorites.
If you haven’t heard of Birchbox, you can find out more here. And if you have never got your brows shaped or styled at a Benefit brow bar, I highly recommend it. Such a fun experience!
