Exciting news, Benefit babes (and fairy tale lovers)! This spring, Benefit and Universal Films partner up on a limited edition makeup set inspired by the upcoming movie.
Rare Beauty ($45), meet Snow White & the Huntsman.
The film, which hits theaters June 1 and stars Kristen Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as evil Queen Ravenna, looks like Grimm for grownups to me, and I like the spooky new look.
Benefit products also appear on the actors in the film, as they are the movie’s exclusive beauty partner.
More details (and product pics) coming soon, but from what I’m gathering through the grapevine, the set will include makeup to recreate Snow White’s super black lashes, flushed cheeks and milky skin.
Rare Beauty, a set inspired by Kristen’s look in the film, arrives in stores, boutiques and counters this May, but die-hard Bene-babes don’t have to wait that long. It will officially launch online on April 17 at benefitcosmetics.com.
I saw the movie trailer in the theater before The Hunger Games last week, and it looks pretty darn great! It even got El Hub’s attention.
Poor guy will indubitably have to put up with me whispering random Benefit makeup tidbits through the movie when we see it, like, “I think they used High Beam on Kristen’s upper cheek bones in that shot…” and, “I bet Charlize is rocking Hoola right there.” LOL!
Benefit will also be hosting a contest where winners will be able attend a private screening of Snow White & the Huntsman in their hometown (with 50 of their closest friends!). If you win, um… I’m just sayin’. You found out about it here.
I’ll have more info on Rare Beauty over the next few days. Stay tuned.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
