Laughter is the Best Cosmetic


Bonding Over Beauty with Benefit

Benefit Cosmetics has opened shop in the SOHO area of New York City - and how did I not hear of this swanky boutique for all things beauty until now!!??  Zion and I recently had a Mother-Daughter date for Benefit's Bonding Over Beauty event, where we enjoyed pampering, sweet treats and spending special quality time together.

We started our day with a bit of hot coffee & hot chocolate - one of my most favorite things to do with my little lady.  Then we were off to the boutique - which is stunningly put together with pink accents, floral paper and fun vintage mannequins wearing bright and bold colors.
After oohing and ahhing over the gorgeous makeup and decor, it was time for a little pampering for the princess.
She loved getting a touch of satiny pink blush to her cheeks and frosty purple eyeshadow lightly dusted on her eyelids.  After she was all done - she was beaming - and glowing with joy!  I knew she'd love this event, as I catch her getting into my makeup at least once a week.
After Zion was done posing for pictures, we took some time to talk about what makes us really beautiful - its not about makeup or the clothes we wear, its about the condition of our hearts.  A joyful, thankful heart - one that is kind, compassionate and loving - is a beautiful thing.
We spent the rest of the time checking out all of the cosmetics displays, and mingling with other ladies at the event.  I think one of the best things about Benefit is that their products really aim to enhance and play off your natural beauty - nothing seemed heavy or over the top.  I love their free-spirited attitude and their signature quote, "Laughter is the best cosmetic, so grin and wear it."
At the end of the event I went home spoiled with some goodies that I am totally in love with and this little cutie pie...
Here are my absolute favorite products from Benefit:

  1. She really is one of the prettiest little girls ever, and she has such a pretty mamma!

  2. I just discovered Benefit the other day. They gave me a makeover at Macy's (you might have seen my instagram photo). I ended up buying the mascara and the pore minimizer. It's really great stuff! :)

  3. I haven't tried the pore minimizer but I really really want to!! :) I think they are one of my new favorite cosmetic brands!


Thank you so much for your lovely comments! I don't always have time to respond to each one, but I do read them! XO
