Matthew Williamson’s New Palette For Benefit Blows Minds, Lifts Spirits

Think when it comes to makeup palettes, you've seen it all? We thought so, too (you should see our beauty closet). But, then we heard about Matthew Williamson's new The Rich Is Back palette for Benefit. To say our minds were blown doesn't even cover it. This '70s-inspired kit includes bright eye shadows such as Peacock and Rainbow Leopard, plus the little extras (mascara! lip gloss!) that a girl needs. It aims to "lift women's spirits," according to press materials. Our spirits were lifted just reading about it, but we guess we'll agree to try this one out, if you insist.
As always, Williamson's embrace of color and pattern feels fresh and fun. The designer was looking toward the Studio 54 era for the limited-edition palette, citing Bianca Jagger and Diana Ross as some inspirations. He suggests using this bright, vibrant makeup before going out and dancing the night away, but we can probably justify all kinds of daytime uses for it as well. A girl's gotta live a little, right?
