Benefit Boutique Swansea Launch

I was so excited when I found out that Benefit were opening a Boutique in my home town, and last Friday I was lucky enough to attend the launch event for Benefits newest boutique located in  Debenhams Swansea.

The Boutique
The new Boutique looks amazing - it is so girly and pretty, just like their packaging, and you can tell a lot of thought has gone into the design.

They still have the brow bar but in addition to that behind the counter there are three rooms. They now have a gorgeous waxing room, where you can get anything from half a leg to a full body wax, a spray tan room where Fake Bake tan is used, and a make-up room which you can hire out at £10 per person and have a make-up lesson from one of the lovely Benebabes. The ten pound is redeemable against benefit products too so its a win-win situation.

The Event
We were greeted by the lovely Alyson and Joanne and faced with a table full of Benefit makeup and the most amazing Welsh cakes ever. Then we were given a talk and demonstration (on one of the girls hands, haha) of the waxing procedures that they do at the Boutique.

We also had the chance to have a play with Benefits newest product launch - Colour by Benefit. Its a collection of Eye Shadows, Cream Shadows and Lipglosses. The packaging is so pretty and I particularly loved the cream shadows and lip glosses.

We were also very lucky bloggers and got to take home an amazing Benefit goodie bag. In it we recieved the Porefessional, They're Real Mascara and Benefit Brow Zings. I am a huge fan of the Porefessional and I was soo excited to try the mascara and Brow Zings and can report they are both brilliant - watch this space for reviews.

A HUGE thank you to Benefit for inviting me to the event, and to Alyson and Joanne for making it so much fun.

Also, check out Benefits blog on the launch day.
