Another Sydney Adventure.
The “Adventures” series is just a bit about my adventures as a beauty blogger like traveling and attending events! Part 1
Whilst Sydney is a little fast paced for my liking there is no denying that I love the place. For one I still get that warm buzzy “I’m an Australian” feeling inside when I see the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. Most importantly though it is beauty event city which I LOVE.
Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Benefit Fake Up launch. As most of you probably know I’m already a bit of a Benefit fan, the Hoola bronzer, High Beam, Posie Tint, They’re real, Watts Up, Benetint, I could go on for hours. So naturally being a benefit fan + a beauty blogger a new product is bound to excite me. (I haven’t actually tried a Benefit concealer before!)

The event was held at the Benefit Boutique in Paddington and was everything you would ever expect from Benefit. Shirtless waiters in bow ties, Dr Feelgood and a short theater act from the Benefit Australia team, which was a little different but we all secretly enjoyed it and it gave us all a good laugh.

Benefit claims the new concealer is hydrating for up to six hours (thanks to the hydrating ring around the concealer which contains vitamin E & apple seed extract ) and will not crease. It reportedly instantly hides dark circles, diffuses fine lines and gives silky smooth coverage. Some pretty big claims there so I am interested to see if the product lives up to it. So far it seems quite good.

Appetizers and cocktails circulated around the event and me having the sweet tooth that I do went straight for the AMAZING cupcakes (I secretly might of eaten a few to many) and the delicious, refreshing apple sorbet.

We all left with cute Benefit makeup bags filled with some of their best sellers (They’re real and POREfessional, it should come as no surprise I have tried both before!) and the new concealer. I had an amazing time (huge thank you to Maxed Thomas PR & Benefit for having me!) and it was a great event, well worth the trip!
