Makeup On the Go
I’m in BWI airport waiting to board a flight. While trying to hunt down a cup of coffee I came across this:
A pink truck full of Benefit beauty products. Gasp!
Okay, so technically it’s a vending machine. I’ve seen these in airports for electronics (a grand idea for everyone who forgot their charger or headphones at home), but never for makeup.*
This one is all Benefit products, and many items are travel size. Brilliant. There is a sign on the truck that guarantees that the prices of products are equal to what you would find at a counter or on the Benefit website.
I struggle with makeup options while traveling. You can only fit so many products in a quart-sized Ziploc bag for security, so it becomes a game of Tetris + “do I need this?” Yes. Yes. The answer is yes, I always need it. But, the reality is that my beauty routine is restricted when I travel.
This type of machine gives people options after security. It also is perfect if you forgot something at home.
Have you ever seen a beauty vending machine? Would you purchase something? Would you want to know if one was in your terminal before getting to an airport so you can plan accordingly?
*I have seen Proactiv vending machines. Does this count as the same thing? For some reason I don’t put it in the same category.
My sister-in-law ran into another Benefit truck at the IAH airport in Houston, Texas.
If you run into one at another airport let me know. Or, if you find a beauty vending machine with a different brand please send pics!
