Why do I suddenly feel the urge to wear neon and listen to Wham!?
Oh, maybe it’s this: the Benefit holiday 2015 collection and its candy-colored, ’80s theme.
My goodness, girlfriend. It just occurred to me that, depending on your age, you may not have heard of Wham! — which is a thought that makes me want to take a long walk off a short pier (dramatic much?).
Seriously, though, they’re one of the quintessential ’80s party bands.
Speaking of parties, this year’s Benefit holiday 2015 collection Best of Benefit kits sure look like they’re having a blast (look at those bright colors!). I’m getting distinct notes of out-of-control New Year’s Eve parties that can’t stop, and won’t stop, until well after dawn.
The collection consists of six Best of Benefit kits filled with combinations of mini and full-sized re-promoted products from the Benefit permanent line, so if you’ve been a Bene-Babe for a while, there’s a good chance you already have some of them. These are really about gifting, and for the right person, they could be a great fit.
I mean, they’ve already got eye-catching wrapping.
What we have here are pics of four of the six kits. Not shown are a cheek and eye palette, as well as a special edition, crystal-studded tube of They’re Real Mascara.
Party Poppers ($45), this year’s Benefit advent calendar (the yellow and pink box near the top), is shorter and sweeter than last year’s calendar and comes with 12 mini products for 12 days, instead of 24, but it also has extra fa-la-la-la-laaaa! — meaning that it sings. But you have to play the video up top to hear it, because I haven’t figured out how to serenade you from my keyboard yet, haha.
Look for this year’s Best of Benefit holiday kits online and at Benefit counters and stores soon.
