All Benebabes (that's members of Benefit staff for anyone who's wondering!) were recently invited to Benefit's Glamouriety event held at The Royal Institue in Mayfair, in true Benefit fashion the place was decked out in pink, diamantes and pink bubbly for the event, there was a lot of laughter and I can put my hand on my heart and say every girl in that room had the perfect brows.
The Glamouriety tour is to showcase Jean and Jane Ford's - founders of Benefit - exciting journey to cosmetic fame. An all singing, all dancing documentary on how the twins started and grew their business was shown which featured an appearance from some of our favourite characters including Dr. Feelgood and the story of how Benetint was created which involves an exotic dancer and her nippes - I'll say no more. We were also treated to a hilarious comical makeover by funny woman 2012 winner Gabby Best, she talked us through how not to makeover a customer demoing on a Benebabe, she used the line "You f*ck up the base, you f*ck up the face" and I was dying with giggles! Ian and Gail or as we call them Mr & Mrs Benefit UK also came and gave a small talk to us staff members on how the company is progressing and how Benefit are a company who tailor to their staff and customers - I was a little starstruck when they appeared as they're responsible for bringing Benefit over to the UK 17 years ago!
After the hilarious and inspring documentary had finished we were invited to watch a performance by the beautiful Elle & The Pocket Belles and enjoy some more bubbly and the most delicious mini fish and chips I've ever eaten. I bumped into my friend Emma along with Lily who were also attending and representing the beauty bloggers so it was nice to see a familiar face also.
As usual Benefit provided a fun, fabulous night with lots of laughs. If you want to see what the Glamouriety documentary is all about I've posted the video below, be prepared to giggle!
