Sephora customers will soon be able to take Benefit beauty to go: The retailer and cosmetics brand have teamed up to offer a collection of all-in-one kits which address common beauty needs and concerns.
Benefit’s product development team and Sephora’s Pro makeup artist team worked together to come up with six Complexion and Lip & Cheek Kits, which will bow in August.
“These kits bring together Benefit’s fun, instant beauty solutions with the artistry talent of the Sephora Pros,” said Aurelian Lis, general manager of North America at Benefit Cosmetics. “Not only are the kits and the associated tips and tricks easy and accessible to consumers, but they also were guided by top-notch artists from Sephora Pro to allow comprehensive looks to be created quickly,” he said. “The kits launch globally in August and will be supported by our uniquely quirky initiatives that aim to bring laughter to the world of beauty.”
“The first wave launches fall 2012 and focuses on a flawless complexion and perfectly paired lips and cheeks,” said Julie Bell, executive vice president of global marketing at Benefit. We’ve branded our Tips & Tricks for the first time ever, so you know exactly how to use everything inside.”
“The idea was to create an all-in-one kit that contained an artist’s necessities while still feeling approachable,” said Gilbert Soliz, lead artist for Sephora Pro. The 13-member Sephora Pro team is comprised of makeup artists who represent Sephora nationally while also serving as local beauty experts in their home markets. “Collaboratively, we came up with different product options, color combinations and supportive how-to steps. At Sephora, the most frequent requested beauty needs-concerns evolve around complexion and correction, either stemming from complexion concerns (acne, aging spots, sun damage) or to look younger and more refreshed (lack of sleep, stress, environmental factors). ”
While none of the executives would discuss sales projections, industry sources estimated that the kits could generate first-year retail sales of $25 million globally.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
