Hey lovelies.. It has been a really busy week for me, especially in regards to attending events! I went to the NBBE on Monday which I briefly mentioned in a post before. Tuesday was a Benefit event held at the Covent Gardens that my girl Yinka was co-hosting.
It was a great night filled with lots of laughs! The event was specifically targeted at women of colour. It was an event that was meant to highlight how universal the products of Benefit were. I have to say I have never been a huge Benefit fan and I can't say from what I saw on the night that I was converted. I still don't think Benefit would be a brand I would associate with women of colour. I believe the primary reason for this is the lack of variety and colour ranges in the majority of their base products eg. foudnations/concealers. In regards to lipsticks, lipglosses, eyeshadows, blushers etc their products are relatively pigmented and likely to suit most skin types.
I just wanted to give Yinka a huge shoutout for organising a great event and allowing us bloggers to mingle with one another. I think that has to be the most exciting part of attending these events. I am such a chatterbox and love to meet the people who's blogs I read and obviously always meeting new people/bloggers is also fun!

In deep convo with Wande this seems to be a standard pose of mine lol!
Amina and myself.
I have a few products that we were given and I'm yet to try out so once I do so you will hear what I have to say. Please be patient with me though as I seem to have accumulated so much stuff lately! Eeek.
I just want to say a big thank you to Stephanie for some of the pictures above. You star!
What do you dolls think of Benefit as a make up brand? How do you think it relates to women of colour? Do you? Also what do you think of the packaging? I am usually such a sucker for pretty things but for some reason Benefits packaging doesn't attract me at all, which I have to say is unusual.
