Benefit Scene Queen The New Annie Collection

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on June 24, 2010

Benefit seems to be one of those cosmetics brands that you either love or hate.  If you ask a room full of beauty addicts what they think about Benefit half will go on and on about how Benetint is a sham of a product and the cheek colors are nasty looking while the other half will talk about how great the palettes are and how great the cheek colors are.  I happen to love most of the products I’ve tried from Benefit.  The colors are gorgeous, the packaging is fun, and their palettes often contain everything you need to create a complete look.  Plus you get tons of product that just seems to last and last.  Benefit’s latest palettes are no exception.

Benefit’s new Scene Queen The New Annie Collection is stunning.  It contains four eye shadows in Charcoal, Shimmering Beige, Misty Blue, and Navy, cheek color in Coralista with a mini natural bristle brush, lip shine in Juicy Coral, Smokin’ Liner eyeliner, High Beam luminating enhancer, two Fluff Shadow/Hard Angle brushes, and a step-by-step make-up guide.  My favorites are the eye shadows.  There is just enough shimmer in them to catch and reflect the light without being overly glittery.  No need to save these for nights out, they’ll work at the office too.  The possibilities are really endless with the products and colors you get in this collection.  Everything from a sexy smoky eye to a more natural professional look can be achieved.

I love love LOVE that Benefit frequently packages their palettes in adorable compact little boxes.  They are so easy to stash in your desk at work so that you’ll have something to reach for when you need a touch up for an unexpected meeting or for happy hour after a long day at work.  Also, I love that this palette has such a giant mirror.  One of my gripes with all-in-one palettes is that sometimes the mirror is so small and is of such a low quality that you can barely see your entire eye in the reflection.  This is not a problem here.

Benefit Scene Queen The New Annie Collection is a limited edition palette.  It retails for $38.
