I had one of the most glamorous nights of my life last night. Myself and Khila (aka MissBudgetBeatuy) were invited along to the Benefit Cosmetics Glamouriety Roadshow at the Lowry in Manchester. It was predominantly for staff but a few bloggers were invited to attend and celebrate the brand.
The night was largely set around the Glamouriety Film which follows Benefits creators Jean and Jane’s journey from Indiana cornfields to a beauty empire, all done in a very comical way. It features a few familiar faces including Dr feelgood and Rita, as well as real stories of people that inspired the brand, one being a stripper that needed the aid of a tint for a rather personal dilemma, and so Benetint was born!
You can see the full Glamouriety Video here
There was also a comedian who was hilarious (video below) and a talk from the UK big benefit Cheeses, all very light hearted and motivational.
Then the real party began, with copious amounts of bubbly and nibbles flowing (the food was amazing) CanCan Dancers and a retro band Elle and The Pocket Belles, which I now want for my wedding! Myself and Khila made sure we got our moneys worth from having to get 2 taxis! (We went to the wrong Lowry) so had a few portions of food and plenty of drink (on a work night wasn’t wise)

Overall it was such a good night, we chatted to some lovely girls (never been more motivated to diet after seeing all these gorgeous girls), had wonderful food & drink and really grew a better appreciation for the quirky brand. Honorary Benebabes!
Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of myself *sigh* but I will have one soon as we had some photos taken by photographers at the event. But here is my makeup (stole the photo from Khila) products listed below.
