Benefit Cosmetics is launching the perfect “stranded on a desert island” must-have makeup collection

As autumn looms close on the horizon, we’re starting to get those end-of-summer scaries and wishing we could disappear to a desert island with good weather year-round. While that might not exactly be possible, Benefit Cosmetics is giving us a hand by launching the Benefit Island collection: the perfect “stranded on a desert island” makeup. We might be stuck in an office, but at least we’ll look like we’ve been hanging on the beach.

This collection is made up of five best-selling products that have been hand-picked by beauty influencers Nicole Guerriero, Manny Gutierrez, Laura Lee, Karen Sarahi Gonzalez, and Jeffree Star. Their lovely faces will grace the boxes and include quotes on why the product is their ultimate Benefit Island pick.


The Benefit Island Collection launches online Friday, August 11th at Sephora and in-stores on August 17th.


Prices range from $24 to $31. See each influencer paired up with their Benefit pick below.
