It's finally coming!



I wish the photo was bigger, but this is all I could find. The palette comes with a mini- Georgia Peach complexion powder, me, myself and I shimmery eye color and a matte brown shadow called Groundhog day. The lip cream is called I think I love you, which is a pale matte creamy peach. Very natural and soft! i bought one of these last week for my friend's birthday. It's only available at the Benefit boutique in Berkeley and San Francisco, and coming to Sephora soon.

It's available on Benefit's site too, right now! I posted in the codes/discounts section.
Looks very pretty.

I love Georgia peach, it looks fan all over when you need a pick me up. My mum and i are boycotting Benefit at the moment because her "speed bump" cream e/s has nearly run out. It's her favourite shade and they don't make it any more. I think that Benefit's colour selction of cream eyeshadows is really strange, I can understand keeping Nina's Nugget and Naughty Feather, but I really don't understand why they chose to keep the other shades and get rid of some of the more flattering ones. I'm all for colour but I can't imagine Big Kahuna suiting anyone.

I used to be a Benefit freak. I had almost everything in their line but about a couple of months ago they changed their make-up line and it wasn't the same. I loved their cream eye shadows and the new ones don't do it for me at all.

I'm all for colour but I can't imagine Big Kahuna suiting anyone. To clear a few things up:
The cream eyeshadows that Benefit originally sold were rather un-popular. Nobody bought them. I struggled to sell them, people complained about the colors except for nina's nugget, naughty feather, moon doggie, charm school and my date's my brother and big kahuna, which are colors they still sell now. The company realized that they needed to change something about their eyeshadows, so they basically kept all the same colors they had before, except turned them into powder form. The shadows do sell rather well now, especially the Show Offs loose powder ones, and the creams never sell because of the texture, they are no longer the creaseless formula that they had before. My co-workers and I were kinda pissed off at this point and we brought attention this situation to the CEO of Benefit. She told us that the biggest mistake the company made was changing the formula of the cream shadows and that it's COMING BACK!!!

So, with that said, we are looking forward to the old formula to come back, not sure about what colors will be arriving or if any will be added. As far as old colors being discontinued, it was something we had to do because nobody liked the colors except a very select few. All companies discontinue color because color isn't the main focus most of the time, except for MAC and they disc. stuff all the time! Benefit's focus is on fake-its and we only show color during makeovers and separate appointments. I would rather sell a 30 dollar foundation than a 14 dollar shadow that took a girl 30 minutes to choose.

Big Kahuna (golden orange) is one of my favorite colors! It's really nice with Bambi (yellow-pink)show off dusted on top and Hey Bellboy (shimmery plum) in the crease. It's my signature eye! I will have to do a FOTD with that look soon~! I will let you guys know what is going on with that cream shadow development when I find out more.

Other new stuff coming out:

Brand new from BeneFit (in fact, more than new -- this is due on shelves in May 2005!). Be the first one on your block to own BeneFit's "Hi, Neighbor" -- yet another camp-appeal yet high-performance formula from BeneFit. 3.5 fl oz/ 100 ml Particularly recommended for normal to oily complexions-- use all over or where you need it! Pink liquid clay mask that quickly clarifies your skin Features a blend of bentonite and kaolin clays, oat flour, and provitamin B5 Cleanses, calms and rinses clean for a fresh, soft complexion Comes with cute built-in applicator: a round poufy dauber Suggested retail price: $20

Not on my Pillow - makeup remover

Prom Gloss - Not sure what this is!!! It sounds cute though!

Gosh, I wish I could have you guys visit me, I could show you how great Benefit stuff is, I know too many tricks and cool looks to make those cream shadows work!

That is why I fell in love with Benefit make-up. I swear to you, I had every item in their catalog at one time. Please do let us know when it is coming back. I will be the first one at my local Benefit.

What Benefit location do you work at? I see that you are in the Bay Area and so am I. I live in Marin County and when I used to be a Benefit freak, would often go to the Mill Valley store. The girls there have always been super nice and not pushy at all just for the sake of making a sale.

I will be (hopefully and most likely) working at the Benefit Boutique in Berkeley. It's a full service waxing salon and they get all of the new items first before anyone else. I've worked for Benefit for two years and now I am ready to go to the boutique which is basically like a "pro store" that sells other things besides what you see on the website and at Macy's. They also reserve the store for "Pretty parties" where customers invite their friends to come, in your jammies if you want, and get makeovers and listen to your own CDs. It sounds really fun! I will let you know when I am working so you can come on down! I used to work at NewPark Macy's, and that place was really ghetto! MAC had a high return rate because people bought makeup and returned it after their party or event, I marked my receipts so that people couldn't do that to me!

Oh yay Scarlette, I'm glad to hear about this job opportunity for you! I'll have to come by the store when I'm in NorCal next.


I like the Georgia palette a lot -- but my only beef is that it has "Me Myself & I", just like the Hoola palette. I wanted more variety!
But I did have to giggle, because of the "I Think I Love You" lipstick. Anyone listen to Ryan Seacrest in the mornings? LOL!

Its in the best location and it has a lot of my other favorite stores around - MAC, Bare Essentuals, Crate & Barrel and of course, Benefit. Please do let us know when you start there and also, I am thinking of getting my brows waxed for the first time
and would love a recommendation from you in regards to the waxing salon at Benefit.
TIA!
