Matthew Williamson and Benefit - The Rich Is Back!
Lets start this post off by saying, Happy 15th Birthday Sephora! For this lovely occasion, Benefit and international fashion designer Matthew Williamson teamed up to create this lovely limited edition high fashion make up box for $34. Inspired by Matthew Williamson's bright, bold prints; this box is said to " flash you back to the glamorous days of disco."
One 0.14-ounce tube of They’re Real Mascara
One 0.22-ounce tube of Lip Gloss in Inferno
One 0.07-ounce Gimme Fever Cheek Powder
Four 0.03-ounce Eyeshadows in Solid Gold, Get Down Brown, Disco Dust and Feel So Teal
One miniature cheek brush
One step-by-step tutorial booklet
I have to admit the first thing that drew me to this product is the box. It is absolutely beautiful! All the patterns on it are inspirations from Matthew Williamson's collections. The peacock ones really got me because I love peacock feathers. Benefit is my favorite high end brand and it is partly because of how pretty their boxes always are. If I am going to pay that much money; I want pretty boxes! However, my absolute favorite thing about this box is that I can take all the products out and use it as a cute jewelry box or to hold my eyeliners! I just love that even when the products are done, I get to keep this pretty box.
After I finished drooling over the box, I got a closer look at the products instead. I love the They're Real! Mascara, it is one of my all time favorite mascaras and the sample size is cute but lasts forever! My last sample size of it lasted me like two months with me using it almost everyday. I have never tried any of their lip glosses but this one in Inferno is a great red shimmery sheer color. The eye shadows come in Solid Gold, Get Down Brown, Disco Dust and Feel So Teal. I swatched the colors at Sephora and they are so pigmented! I was pleasantly surprised. The only product that I was a little bit disappointed with was the Gimme Fever cheek powder. I thought it looked a lot better on the swatch that it does on. It has a nice shimmer to it but not enough color.
