Welcome to Style File at Styling You … fashion and beauty snippets rolled into one spot. It’s all the stuff you didn’t realise you needed to know but now that you do you’ll feel like you’re up with the goss. And king of the watercooler.
Sydney Benefit blogger event
My new car clutch put paid to a trip to Sydney last night to swish it up at Benefit Boutique Paddington and meet daughter of co-founder, Jean and niece of co-founder, Jane, Maggie and Annie Ford Danielson. Instead I “experienced” the event through the uber-glam Mrs Woog, who one day will hopefully accept my Styling You beauty internship offer. One day.
Anyway, back to Benefit. Maggie and Annie Ford Danielson are Benefit’s makeup trend artists and brand authorities and they’re in Australia this week to celebrate 10 years of Benefit in Australia. Like thousands of Australian fans, I love Benefit for its fantastic, innovative products, quirky names and packaging. Bloggers last night were introduced to the new Finding Mr. Bright kit and got a sneak peek of Benefit’s new “b.right!” Radiant Skincare. All Mrs Woog sent me (apart from a tweet asking what an aesthetician was) was this. Is this Mr Bright?

Give me MOR
I love the MOR Wonderlandia theme and recently Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane MOR fans got to see it recreated in a window display of the Bourke Street, Sydney City and Queen Street stores – an amazing opportunity to help celebrate our the company’s 10 year anniversary. What’s your favourite MOR product?
