Benefit have already launched a World Cup pub and a 1950s beauty parlour, so of course the natural progression was for Benefit to launch a ship… Opening this month, The Good Ship Benefit is taking on the high seas of the Thames so that beauty fans can experience Benefit’s products like never before. Highlights include the Lashitude Restaurant at the Upper Deck (a restaurant inspired by the ‘they’re real!’ mascara), the Hoola decks (inspired by Hawaii and their best selling bronzer) and The POREfessional Vault (a hidden room, where all the secrets of flawless skin will be unlocked). See it to believe it.
