Beautiful Beginnings with Benefit

Beautiful Beginnings with Benefit

What was the first Benefit product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Benefit product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: Benefit was one of the first brands of makeup I ever tried.  I remember the two earliest being Benefit and MAC, and I can’t honestly say if one came before the other.  I do, however, remember my first big-time purchase was with Benefit.  I spent a whopping $300 there when I was in high school (when I wasn’t even allowed to wear makeup!).  They used to have a product called Show Offs, which were loose iridescent colors that you could layer on top of other products.  I also bought my first brush there during that trip, which was an eyeshadow brush–and I do still have that.  Some of the first products reviewed on the blog were BADgal Mascara, their new range of lipsticks (at the time), and Posietint.

Since we’ve been together FOREVER, I’ll wear Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure Laque on lips with a neutral eye, maybe slightly smoked out with an antique gold, and gold or bronze eyeliner with a natural cheek color (think Korres Natural). He can wait to kiss me until I’ve removed all my makeup 🙂

Sunday Link Love, Volume #082

Happy Sunday!

Hope you’re having a fantastic weekend! 🙂  I’ve spent part of my morning snuggling up with my favorite lap dog–I tell you, after having owned a 60-pound dog, I don’t know if I could ever go back to a 20-pound or less one! Big, warm, snuggly, and very wiggly.  I’m pretty sure Mellan out-wiggles every dog I know.  I can just say the word “wiggle” and his tail is going.  The only time it isn’t wiggling is when he’s sleeping, though we’ll see it move when he’s dreaming.
