(SPOT.ph) Many beauty junkies swear by Benefit Cosmetics for a reason: they’re best known for brow products that promise to give you that perfectly penciled arch of your dreams!
Fun fact: Can you believe Benefit Cosmetics has been around for over 40 years now? Founded by twins Jane and Jean Ford, the San Francisco-based brand was initially called "The Face Place" in 1976 and was eventually renamed to Benefit Cosmetics in 1990. It was also in the same year the beauty brand opened its first counter in a department store in New York City. Benefit Cosmetics then expanded to the U.K. in the late '90s and eventually opened their first store in the Philippines in 2012.
If you’re feeling curious about what else the brand has to offer, look no further than a list of some of Benefit’s most popular products. You might just want to make more room in your makeup kit!
Here are the 10 best-selling products from Benefit Cosmetics:
