Benefit Beauty Event (See Jane Radiate)

me, alicia, anh + nicole (photo c/o anh - check out her blog for more pictures!)

I was cordially invited to a blogger beauty event at Benefit's headquarters in San Francisco on Wednesday (thank you again, Erin and all!) where I got to test out their new skincare line b.right Radiant Skincare.  The wonderful people at Benefit graciously gave us each a set of their new skincare line and let me tell you, my face feels super soft and hydrated.  I'm a longtime benefit fan (I credit my friend Marion for introducing me to Erase Paste: best.concealer.ever) and am often frequent their famous brow bars, so I can't wait to give these products a test run.

Unfortunately, because I was in San Francisco for work, I left the camera at home (but please, check out the iPhone Hipstamatic pictures taken in my hotel room below for a good chuckle); however, everyone there snapped a ton of pics, so be sure to check out their blogs!  It's funny because although I'm not technically a SF based blogger, they have definitely welcomed into their world as I semi-live my life out here due to my day job and constant travels.  It was great hanging out with Anh, Alicia, Becca, and Nicole and even though my project is winding down, I think I'll have to schedule some "follow-up work trips" out there, just to say hi!

For some reason, I don't think this shade of green is the oceanic look they were trying to convey.  Nevertheless, these are some great products that I am thrilled to try out!
