"Laughter is the best cosmetic, so grin & wear it!" — Jean & Jane Ford, co-founders. In 1976, former models Jean and Jane Ford opened a quirky boutique in San Francisco where they introduced the world’s first “Fake-Its”…instant beauty solutions with laugh-out-loud names and creative packaging. Benefit quickly became one of the world’s most beloved makeup brands and garnered a cult following among models, makeup artists, and celebrities. Now carried in over 35 countries, goodtime gals “fake it ‘til they make it” with iconic bestsellers like Benetint, the POREfessional, and They’re Real! mascara.
