On Sunday, I spent some time in the sun at Benefit Cosmetics’ fun fair Benefayre in Glasgow’s St.Enoch Square. It was in aid of fantastic charity Refuge that seeks to stop and raise awareness of domestic violence, and support women affected by domestic violence.
A mini fun fair was set up. You give a Refuge charity donation to get in, and in return you get cute little Benefit tokens to play the games, get a snack and have a makeover.
There were four games- Porefessional’s shoot down the lemons to win a deluxe sample and the Benefit Spygirl Marvel comic; They’re Real’s hoopla with giant mascara wands to win travel size They’re Real samples, and if you hooped three, a Benefit make-up bag; and a hook-the-duck to win Bad Gal travel mascara samples. There was also Stay Flawless’ knock down the foundation cans to win Cha Cha tint samples, or if you knocked all 5 down at once, an amazing Stay Flawless mirror.
It was a lot of fun, and I came away with a Stay Flawless mirror (yes!), some samples, a comic and a gift of a Porefessional umbrella. I also ate some rather lovely candyfloss…
If you were unable to get to a Benefayre; but still want to donate some money to Refuge, you can visit Benefit’s Just Giving page here.
This weekend on 10th & 11th August, Benefayre will be in Cardiff at St.David’s Square. Get down there
