Benefit's The Rich Is Back makeup kit

The Rich Is Back - £26.50, available here

Last Friday a few of us Birmingham bloggers were invited to attend a 'Benefit VIP event' at Debenhams in the Bullring to celebrate the launch of the 'The Rich Is Back' makeup kit which is an exclusive collaboration with designer Matthew Williamson and is only available exclusively at Debenhams.

"This Limited Edition Matthew Williamson The Rich is Back Makeup Kit from Benefit is only available Exclusively at Debenhams. It's modern decadance! Benefit and Matthew Williamson flash you back to the glamorous days of disco with rich, seductive shades inspired by his vibrant prints. This high-octane glam kit dresses up your look with flashy eyes, a foxy flush and ruby lips."

The set boasts four impressively pigmented shimmer eyeshadows, each of which would look great on any skin tone and can either be used seperately or together to create a number of different looks. These eyeshadows are exclusive to the set and are called Solid Gold, Get Down Brown, Disco Dust and Feel So Real. The dark teal shade is not one that I would usually go for, however after seeing it applied on Gemma, Sara and Carmen and seeing the different ways in which it can be used, I could definitely see myself using it! There's also a beautiful shimmery pink blusher named 'Gimme Fever' which is another one of those suit all shades. The set also comes with two minis, a lipgloss in the shade 'Inferno' which looks great either on it's own or over a lipstick and the famous 'They're Real' mascara which I know is a firm favourite among a lot of us bloggers!

As well as teaching us all about 'The Rich Is Back' which Amy was lucky enough to win, Wendy from Benefit also told us all about the new 'Stay Flawless' primer which will be launching very soon. This new primer is being marketed as a 'makeup magnet' and claims to keep your make up in place for 15 hours. We were each given a sample of this along with some other minis in a goody bag so I'm excited to try it out!

Thank you Wendy for giving us Birmingham bloggers a chance at having some Benefit fun and hopefully the guys at Benetowers will see how much we appreciated it so we can have other Benefit events in the future.

  2. Looks like a great event, I love anything hosted by Benefit, they always go all out.

    I like the look of the pallet but I doubt i'd ever use it. I'm more interested in the new primer!
