The most common bit of career advice floating about is "do what you love, do what makes you happy." Clearly, Jane and Jean Ford, the twins behind the Benefit brand, have done just that. The delight they get from their work is evident in the work itself.
Take their holiday Primpcess Glamorous Eye Primping Kit ($38 CAN/$34 US), an exuberantly cheery, flirty-girl box of makeup to make eyes pop. Even if you've woken up on the wrong side of good morning, you just can't maintain a grumpy-pants mood while following "You're such a primpcess" step-by-steps, dipping into the kit's pot of Boi-ing concealer, or getting ziggy with a mini BADgal Lash mascara. Plus it's a cinch to toss into a travel bag -- an on-the-fly beauty wink, a "primp my ride," if you will.
And if you're in a party frame of mind, it'll tickle your fancy mood, yes?
Kahani was so taken with Primpcess that she had it sent from the US to her home in Malaysia; here's her throrough review on So Loverly. And see what fellow Canadian Joy David-Tilberg says about Benefit's holiday Peace, Love & Glossiness lip gloss set ($30) in her review of glossy gifts at Makeup Junkie.
