The Ford twins began creating cosmetics in the 70’s. They may be most recognizable to you as the names behind Benefit Cosmetics.
Benefit has long since been a brand filled with whimsical, vintage-style cosmetics that get the job done.
Recently, you may have noticed Benefit’s evolution. The company is evolving every so slightly and developing a bit of a modern edge thanks to Maggie and Annie Ford Danielson, Jean Ford’s daughters and Jane Ford’s nieces. Maggie and Annie are Benefit’s new makeup trend artists and now make up the power house that is Benefit Cosmetics.
With Maggie and Annie’s influence I’ve noticed Benefit Cosmetics has a new twist and that shows in one of their newer releases, the Benefit Femme Metale Precious Metals Eye Makeup Holiday Collection.
It’s a little different for Benefit. It’s not cute, nor is it pretty and cute in the traditional Benefit sense but it does have edge and a certain hipness that should appeal to a new generation of Benefit Cosmetic lovers.
So Benefit isn’t only about natural, fresh, and flawless now but also a bit of an edge to that softness that brand is known for.

Rawrrr! Crazy cat people take note, MAC Fabulous Felines launches next week (August 26th) or in some areas you have been privy to a pre-launch.
Anyone see this collection up close and personal yet? I got a few pieces to play with but haven’t seen it all as of yet. I called MAC today and asked if they are pre-launching and I got some dippy on the phone telling me, “Oh yeah, that collection is out in September…” Obviously she’s on another planet that takes one month to travel to…Jebus who educates these people. Please for the love of the Makeup Gods, don’t let your MAC stores or counters tell you this is launching in September….set your calenders for next week.
MAC Fabulous Felines launches in three collections that are themed around three different cats. Minds you, some of the looks MAC did with the collection aren’t cat-like but more along the lines of mimicking the colors of the different types of cats. So if you happen to be a crazy cat lady that’s expecting some sort of cat looks, you might be disappointed. I know cat people, I own a cat but I don’t consider myself a cat person, I like ragging on you weirdos. Kiddin’, kiddin’!
Moral of this story is here’s a little sneaky peek of MAC Fabulous Felines and later when the collection launches in September (HA, little joke there) ahem…next WEEK…I’ll show you the rest of my purchases.
