Bewitching Brows by Benefit Cosmetics

Transforming brows since 1976, Benefit Cosmetics sure knows brows! A few weeks ago, they threw a magical private party to unveil their newest Benefit Brow collection.

My sister Alexa and I were lucky enough to be invited to this sort-of secret party which was held at Revel at the Palace. We’re both big on Benefit (we just love their stuff!) so we braved the traffic to have ourselves a little afternoon of magic — wearing Benefit make-up, of course!

Like all of Benefit’s events, this particular one was pink, pretty, fun, and highly Instagrammable! (Apparently, that’s an adjective now). The only catch is this: at the time of the event until before today, we were not allowed to post photos of the Benefit Brow collection on our social media accounts just yet! Aughhh! Do you know how hard that was for me, and probably for every girl who was gushing about these brow goodies in that room?! That was a mighty test of forbearance for all of us! It’s a good thing that the venue was brimming with other cute details that we were free to post photos of online.

This cake’s got charm! The top tier resembles a magician’s hat with bunny ears sticking out from inside it. Cute! (Oh, and can you not look at the half-naked guy in the mirror and look at the cake?)

Nope, these are not “magic brownies” but these brownies are pretty magical on their own

Cupcakes?! Now that’s a magic word!

Even their drinks menu are pink and magic-themed! They served Pink Potion (Cosmo), Wicked Wanda (Mule), Lucky Lolita (Margarita), and Under My Spell (Mojito).

Not too early for alcoholic drinks, right? And like a good older sister, I let my 16-year old sister (who I was supposed to be “babysitting”) have a Cosmo.

For a totally mystical experience, there was even a fortune teller at the event!

I’m not actually sure if this fortune teller was the real thing (if she was, she looked more like a punk rock singer than a fortune teller). The first thing she said to me when I sat down was “What are your questions?” Oh, I’m supposed to ask questions? I thought she was just meant to take one good look at me and say something like “you’re going to have five babies.” Instead, she made me choose from the four available cards and just answered my questions.

“There is something that you are thinking of doing but you are holding yourself. But if you just let it happen, you could be successful at it,” said the fortune teller.

A little hocus pocus

Whether or not she was a true blue fortune teller, it was still a fun activity!

A roving magician also approached the guests and wowed them with his sleight of hand. He asked Alexa to pick a card, draw on it, put it back together with the other cards, then shuffle them. Without looking, the magician was able to find that one card in a sea of jumbled cards! How do they do that?! That’s wild!

It was nice seeing old friends and meeting new people too.

We ladies were asked if we wanted a photo with the Magic Mikes, but we actually turned the offer down and pushed them out of the way so we could have this pretty background to ourselves! I had a little photo shoot with my friend and former workmate, make-up artist Nikki Duque, who introduced me to beauty vlogger Czari Domingo and Maxine Marcelino.

Hogging the spotlight

The event opened in a fierce fashion: dancers gyrated onstage with their pink sequined costumes and feathery headdresses, getting everyone excited for the big reveal.

The event was hosted by the bubbly Bianca Valerio who was dressed like a magician, but a very stylish one.

The biggest surprise of the day was when Jared Bailey, Global Brow Expert of Benefit Cosmetics, popped out from a big magician’s hat! That hat has been sitting there since the start of the event! Has he been hiding inside the whole time?!

After his crazy grand entrance, he then surprised us even more by unfurling the life-size versions of the latest Benefit Brow collection products.
