Favorite Product: Benefit Brow Zings
“I’m in love with Benefit’s Brow Zings—because who doesn't love bold brows? The little tweezers help me shape my arches, while the powder allows me to make my sparse brows appear thicker. I also love how the gel keeps stray hairs in place.”
Favorite Product: Benefit High Beam
“I've been using Benefit’s High Beam for years! A few little dabs on your cheekbones and brow bones really make your features pop.”
Favorite Product: Benefit Benetint
“Before joining team Birchbox, I worked as international program manager for the United Nations. Benefit’s Benetint was one of the few beauty products I took with me on my travels to post-conflict Liberia, the Somali region of Ethiopia, and the Western Highlands in Guatemala. It’s customary to dress down and blend in with your surroundings as a foreign aid worker, but I liked using a few dabs of Benetint to feel put-together while still looking natural.”
Favorite Product: Benefit They're Real!
“This is one of the best beauty products I've ever used. I've actually been asked if my lashes are fake while wearing it. One time, a man stopped me on the subway and said (in reference to 2-Chainz's Birthday Song): "Big lash contest, you in first place."
Favorite Product: Benefit Gimme Brow
“I could not live without it. This product reduced my morning routine time significantly. I used to use an eyebrow powder and brush to fill in my eyebrows and it took forever. Then, I’d go over it with clear brow gel and it would usually look less than natural. Now, I just comb each brow with a dry spoolie and swipe on Gimme Brow and I'm done!”
Favorite Product: Benefit Hoola
“As an extremely pale person, a touch of bronzer can be the difference between looking healthy and looking like I belong six feet under. Hoola is one of the only bronzers I've managed to find that blends into my skin for a natural looking glow.”
Favorite Product: Benefit Boi-ing
"I like no nonsense concealers that are easy to apply and blend. This creamy one has amazing coverage and doesn't crease or fade—basically it's perfect for blemishes and dark under eye circles."
