Benefit Cosmetics has been one of my ride or die makeup brands for as long as I can remember. They’re High Brow pencil was the very first product I bought when I started to invest in makeup and it’s still one of my favourites today. It’s been so amazing to watch Benefit grow as a brand over the years and now I could not be happier to see them taking Canada by storm.
Benefit Cosmetics was started by Jean and Jane Ford, two sisters from Indiana and has grown into an international powerhouse that helps women discover their natural beauty. Benefit is all about self- confidence and simply enhancing the features you have to make you feel gorgeous. It’s all about having fun with makeup and creating your own destiny.
They have spent years spreading their message through their fun packaging and show stopping products but now Canada is being invited to experience the Benefit lifestyle in a whole new way. With over 60 boutiques in the United States and even more in Europe, Benefit has opened the very first BeneBoutique right here in Toronto!
The BeneBoutique is every girls dream, a pink palace filled with makeup, glitz and glamour. It’s open and airy and you feel at home the second you walk through the door. The Benefit boutique takes the aesthetic of the brand and their products and brings everything to life offering everything you could ever need. You can shop their line of makeup and skincare, get a makeover or a lesson from the Benebabes themselves. They have every product in the range and even some exclusive kits that can’t be found at your local Sephora or Murale.
Take your visit a step further and visit the famous Benefit Brow Bar with licensed aestheticians who can treat you to anything off of their menu of services. Learn how to map out your brows (a trick that Jean and Jane invented themselves!), add some tint to those sparse hairs or shape them to perfection via waxing or threading. You can also get your lips, chin and face attended to in the comfort of the Benefit Brow Bar.
The Brow Bar stands out from all other salons and spas because it truly feels like you are having a pamper night with some girlfriends. The space is clean and ultra sanitary and all of the products and tools are obviously well cared for. No detail is left behind and you can be confident in whatever you choose to get done.
It doesn’t stop there! Benefit also offers a full range of body waxing including, arms, underarms, legs, bikinis and Brazilians. For your comfort they have created gorgeous private rooms that feel just like the boutique – warm, welcoming and like a second home.
Once you have the perfect canvas you can finish your visit off with a spray tan! Benefit has paired up with Vita Liberata to offer the best of the best in organic tanning. Each airbrush tan is done by hand and customized to your needs. You can get a subtle glow or a full on tropical tan with the plant based spray that won’t ever look orange or fake.
The Benefit Boutique is such a gorgeous place to visit for a shopping trip or a pamper session. I have never entered a spa environment that has felt as comfortable and welcoming as the Benefit Boutique. That feeling means that I will always return for anything I need done. To me comfort is key and Benefit has nailed it. Their boutique is a wonderland that any girl could spend hours exploring. If you live around Toronto I highly suggest stopping by to see it for yourself. If you don’t live in Toronto, don’t you worry! You can visit one of their Brow Bars inside various Sephora stores or you can keep your eyes open for a boutique opening near you soon!
Stop by the boutique for any service or contact them to plan a Beauty Bash for you and your friends. A Beauty Bash is an exclusive after hours private party at the boutique with snacks, bubbly and all of the treatments you could want. It’s the perfect way to explore the new boutique so grab a group of girl friends and check it out!
The Benefit Cosmetics Boutique is located at 2614 Yonge Street in Toronto Ontario. You can contact them at 416 – 440 – 2769. To see a full list of treatments visit the Benefit website, keep in mind that prices are different in Canada.
A million thank you’s to Benefit Canada for inviting me to visit the new boutique!
