Benefit Cosmetics Primp & Party

Benefit Cosmetics Primp & Party 1

Yay- I’ve finally had a chance to sit down and start writing my NYFW recaps! I’m still pinching myself that I had the opportunity to attend several fashion shows this season- what an amazing experience! Get ready for lots of NYFW coverage, from events, to blogger lounges, to outfits I wore, to shows that I saw live and even some that I didn’t!

First up- the Benefit Cosmetics Primp & Party.  Alex and I met up in Soho on the Wednesday before New York Fashion Week started to attend this event. I’ve heard good things about Benefit Cosmetics and I own one of their perfumes, so I was excited to learn more about their products.

Inside we ran into Gloria, Francisca (both members of The Bloggers’ Collective) and Francisca’s sister Anne. While we were waiting for some primping, we were able to sip on delicious cocktails provided by Belvedere. They were seriously so tasty- I should have asked for a recipe!

You could also get a quick touch-up done by one of the professionals at the Benefit store. I didn’t get anything done myself, but I did watch while Anne had her makeup done and appreciated that the makeup artist took the time to explain how to use each of the products she put on.

At the end of the night we were given a goodie bag filled with several Benefit beauty products and a cute mini bottle of Belvedere.  With our gift bags in tow, Alex and I left the Benefit party and headed to Georgetown Cupcakes on our way back home. It was my first time tasting the much-raved about cupcakes and I thought they were pretty good. They still don’t top my favorites cupcake spots in the city though- Butter Lane, Baked by Melissa and Buttercup Bakeshop!

Thanks to Benefit Cosmetics for a great event and generous gift bag and come back tomorrow to see my first NYFW show write-up!
