A couple of years ago my mom joined the House Party community, and since then we’ve had quite a few house parties. If you want to know all the details about house parties then go here, but house parties are parties that you throw in your home promoting anything from a product to a service or even a charity. House Party connects you to brands that you love, sending a free party pack to select participants so that they can promote the brand through an awesome party hosted in said participants home. It’s a really great way to connect consumers with brands or new products they might have otherwise not have heard of- which is why I also joined House Party a couple of months ago. Luckily I was chosen as a host for House Party’s Benefit Laughter is the Best Cosmetic House Party! A party which I hosted with much success a couple of days ago, here are some picture’s of what I received in my party pack and the goodies bags my guests took home:
As part of my party pack I received a set of all 9 shades of Benefit’s new Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow brightening liquid foundation, 14 deluxe samples of best selling The POREfessional PRO balm to minimize the appearance of pores (and one full size for me), 14 deluxe samples of award-winning BADgal Lash mascara, Benetint, the world famous rose-tinted lip & cheek stain, Speed Brow quick-set brow gel, Hervana blush, Big Beautiful Eyes contour kit, a limited edition Hello Flawless travel make-up bag, and loads more!
During my party I was able to match foundation shades to my guests and give them a sample vial’s full of their color match Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation, with a handy shade key so they know what to buy the next time they find themselves at Ulta, Sephora, or at a Benefit Boutique (where they could also use the coupons stashed away in their goody bags). It was loads of fun creating make-up looks for all my guests!
While our party was full of the best cosmetic (laughter), on a more serious note- my guests and I were all super seriously impressed with Benefit’s products (and I was a Benefit fan prior to to the par-tay)! Like me, many of my guests have struggles with finding a mascara that doesn’t irritate their eyes (never mind covering up pores, but I’ll get there in a minute)- but BADgal Lash Mascara really is on the money! It didn’t irritate anybody’s lashes even after numerous re-applications (what? we all tried at least two different eye make-up looks, plus, if you had this mascara you’d want to play with it too). On top of that, the mascara left our lashes looking super lush and long. BADgal lash is now without a doubt my favorite mascara!
While I love love loved the Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation- I have to say, what really made the difference in my opinion was the POREfessional PRO balm. This product, applied under foundation, gives your skin that flawless movie-star/magazine model look by making your pores practically disappear. It creates the perfect canvas for foundation application. After trying this product on all my party peoples- including myself- I feel like this alone could make even the crappiest foundation look good on your skin.
It was an amazing party- and my guests had a great time! So thanks House Party and Benefit! Curious about hosting your own party? Check out the house party website here, and start applying!
