So if you haven't heard by now, Benefit counters have a mascara swap going on at Myer. (For more information see the Benefit Facebook page) So you can swap an old mascara (used or new, red or blue etc...) for a deluxe/travel size tube of their popular They're Real mascara. I am sure we all have a mascara (or two) that we're guilty of not throwing away after 3 months (guilty!) so here's your chance to turn it into something better. Pretty sure this if going to be an extremely popular deal so you better hurry to your nearest Benefit counter!
We went at the end of last week as soon as we heard about it. It was a very simple process. You just fill in a details card and they take away your mascara in exchange for a They're Real one. Easy. You also have the option of booking in a "make up lesson". Which we did for 2 weeks time.
The girl at the Myer Melbourne Benefit counter was so nice. She offered to try some products on me. So I sat down and she worked her magic. The mascara actually came out looking really natural but she did use a disposable spooly instead of the "specially designed" one.
The products she ended up using:
- Stay Don't Stray Primer
- Creaseless Cream Shadow
- They're Real Mascara
It was so fun and the girl was so nice about everything. I wish there was a better photo to show just how pretty those cream shadows were. Also great marketing, because I ended up going to the gym afterwards and sweated like crazy. Guess what happened to the products? My eye makeup looked almost exactly the same as when she had applied it. Very minor smudging with the mascara (but it isn't a waterproof formula anyway) but still wearable. Impressive. Now I really have to buy these products.
Sorry about the low quality pictures in this post, they were all taken on both our phones. It was a spontaneous thing so we used our phones for everything. It was also a chance to see how good the camera actually is. I guess it works?
