That’s right! Many of us in Lebanon wait to travel and hit up a Sephora in Dubai or Europe to get our Benefit Cosmetics beauty fix but not anymore.
I’m happy to be one of the first few to break the news that on the 1st week of December of this year, Benefit Cosmetics will finally be available in Lebanon at ABC Ashrafieh and ABC Dbayeh. The points of sale will also include my personal favorite, the Benefit BrowBar, where you can get your eyebrows Tinted, Waxed and Tweezed by a Benefit expert who is trained in the art of what the brand likes to call Brow Mapping! Learn more about that here.
I was happy to meet with Benefit Cosmetics this week to bring you this news and will be sharing with you many of their latest updates and releases so make sure to follow me on Instagram and SnapChat IvySays for all the latest. Also you can now follow Benefit Cosmetics Lebanon on Instagram here.
I personally love this brand because of how fun and innovative most of their makeup is, it’s totally different in its catchy approach to beauty and original products and I’m also a huge fan of their unique packaging.
If you’re not familiar with Benefit Cosmetics let me walk you through a couple of their iconic and bestselling products.
They’re Real Lengthening Mascara
This one’s all about drama! For extreme length and volume in your lashes. It’s an all-timer and favorite among mascara aficionados and beauty bloggers. It will really make you second-guess whether or not they’re real or fake.
This is one of my personal faves, it’s a lip and cheek stain liquid in rose tint. It will give your cheeks this barely-there sort of sexy flush you get only from a crazy cardio session, and it’s buildable and super long-lasting. It looks like a nail polish bottle, smells like rose water and can be applied with your hands.
The eyebrow kit of eyebrow kits. Whether you want to add definition to your eyebrows or simply fill in sparse areas you will love this set, it includes a pigmented wax cream and a setting powder. It also comes with a miniature angled brush, blending brush and tweezers for those last minute plucks. You really don’t have to be an expert to get nice thick brows with this kit. And the entire package is so compact it can fit in all our nano-bags.
It’s a universal medium-dark shade bronzer with an extra matte finish. It comes with a small cheek brush inside also for those last-minute touch ups. I haven’t used it before but I swiped some on my wrist and already love how well it blends. I also hear it’s the perfect blush for contouring so I can’t wait to try it out.
The Pore Fessional
This is sort of like a primer and loose powder in one, you can use this both under or over makeup to minimize the appearance of pores and help your makeup stay on for hours. It’s an oil-free formula and it feel so silky and smooth.
The Roller Lash
Another cult classic from Benefit, I haven’t tried this one yet, but I can’t wait to after reading the rave reviews it has. It’s supposedly inspired by hair roller, the hook’n’roll brush is supposed to grab lift and curl each lash to give you a wide-doey-eyed look.
