This weekend, I hosted a Benefit Cosmetics / Beauty Party!

Thank you Benefit Cosmetics and House Party for choosing me to host the “Laughter is the Best Cosmetic” house party and sending me great products to test out and share with Pretty Gossip’s earliest supporters and personal friends!

Benefit sent a ton of stuff to share, but I felt Pretty Gossipers deserved more! So, in addition to Benefit’s Cosmetic Bar… I added a Beauty Bar, a Nail Bar, and a Hair Bar!~ Scroll down for more pictures!

Pretty Gossip Beauty Bar, Sample

The Hair Bar was courtesy of Not Your Mother’s. You probably know this, but my favorite product: Clean Freak (review on WeHeartThis | Buy here)! By the way, their new shampoo and conditioner smells like strawberries. Yum.

Loved being able to bring my BFFs together: Beauty, Friends and Food…. plus some GAMES!~

The beauties participated in a white elephant type gift exchange but all the gifts supplied by ME!
We also played a round of Left Center Right (a dice game of luck), as well as a Pretty Gossip Uber Fan Pop Quiz!
Winners of the games and pop quiz won full size Benefit cosmetics, Not Your Mother’s hair products, as well as other amazing beauty products!
