Beauty Rescue

18th February, 2013

As I’m sure you’ve heard, New York Fashion Week was plagued with weather woes this season. There was a epic blizzard, plunging temperatures, sleeting rain ~ and everything slushy and disgusting in between. For that reason, Erin (pictured above) and I were extraordinarily grateful to have been given the opportunity team up with Benefit and Uber ~ they truly rescued us, on a lot of levels!We were generously provided with a campily pink SUV for the week, which was blessedly easy to find when desperate for salvation in inclement weather. Ferried by the sweetest driver and stocked to the gills with Benefit beauty products, it was an absurdly fun way for two sisters to trek around town for a few busy winter days.We really loved getting to try the full range of Benefit’s offerings ~ I have a richer appreciation for this brand and what they stand for than ever before. Everything is designed to offer a tangible benefit ~ be it a hyper-emoliant moisturizer, the perfect brow-defining kit, or a disarmingly effective highlighter (a tool I’ve never tried before and now refuse to leave the house without).The experience inspired me to experiment with my beauty routine in new ways every day ~ more on that coming tomorrow!

    Too bad this post doesn’t give us much info apart from advertising for Benefit… Would have rather liked having a few hints on the new beauty routine itself than blahblah saying the gifts were cool…

    Kelly I’m saying this to you as a long-time fan who has followed you over many years…you’re losing me with these not-so-veiled commercials for brands that seem to be paying you big bucks. I understand “girl’s gotta eat”, but you and your blog used to stand for something, an idea, and now it just seems like it’s a vehicle for feeding your consumerism. Or maybe you’ve always been this superficial and I just didn’t see it earlier…if so, my bad. I’ve tried to hold on (reminding myself that people evolve) because yours was truly the first blog I fell in love with, but I just can’t anymore. Now I just feel sad visiting. Maybe you’re ok with losing a reader like me, maybe you’d rather be more commercial and appeal to a less sophisticated reader. If so, great, keep it up. If not, I’d recommend some soul-searching.

    I received Watts Up for a birthday present through Sephora and love it! I just wish the one I got had the blender on the end <3
