Benefit Sunday Funday Palette – The New Maggie Collection is a makeup kit designed for wear the day after a long night. In other words, everything in this kit will help you look glowing, healthy, and fresh-faced. Benefit co-founders Jean and Jane Ford (yes, they are sisters) have expanded their legacy to include Maggie and Annie Ford Danielson, who are Jean’s daughters, and Jane’s nieces. They are now Benefit’s new makeup trend artists. The Maggie and Annie Collection captures each of their personal flair for modern makeup artistry. Maggie’s palette is called Sunday Funday, whereas Annie’s is called Scene Queen. These palettes are limited edition, and I really love the family-centric idea behind these. To see more photographs,
The mastermind behind this kit had this to say about the Sunday Funday Collection
“Sunday Funday is all about pulling together a fresh, fabulous look after a late night. Whether you were watching movies or dancing ’til dawn, this kit has the prettiest eyeshadows and complexion essentials to make you look beautifully revived…just in time for brunch. Waiter, coffee and mimoas, please!” -Maggie Ford Danielson

- Toasty Liner, a brown eyeliner
- 4 Eyeshadows: Shimmering Bronze, Pink Satin, Light Champagne, and Pretty In Plum
- 2 Fluff Shadow/Hard Angle Brushes
- Step-by-step Makeup Lesson in how to use this palette
Benefit Benetint is one of Benefit’s oldest and most classic products. In fact, I talk to women who are in their forties who have used this product for decades. This product was released in 1976, and has been the bestselling lip and cheek stain since. It leaves a very natural rose tint to your skin and lips, and applies like a red-tinted water before it dries.
The Shimmering Rose gloss in this kit is absolutely gorgeous. It’s very sheer and natural, leaving behind a light pink-rose color that contains a fine golden shimmer to it. This will really help to brighten your smile and your complexion in one!
The four eyeshadows in the Sunday Funday palette are extremely soft, both aesthetically to the touch, and also in pigmentation. They leave behind a natural, gorgeous sheen of color on your skin.
Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer is underneath the bronzing brush in the upper left hand corner of the palette, and remains one of Benefit’s best selling bronzers.
Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase of this palette. I feel that it contains a great array of products for a fresh-faced, glowing makeup look, and I love the idea behind the palette. The packaging is gutsy but cute, and the name of the palette is cheeky and fun. Another fun fact is that Maggie Ford Danielson, who created this palette, is an artist, and worked with an illustrator to help create the artwork for this palette. Kudos to Benefit founders Jean and Jane for expanding their brand to the family and creating a fun, fresh perspective. This is one of those really interesting conversation-starting palettes that you can tote around with you!
