Did you watch Sharknado 2: The Second One last night? So did the good folks at Benefit Cosmetics. If you aren't following the San Francisco beauty brand on Twitter, you missed hilarious beauty commentary, Photoshop projects, and Tara Reid fangirl moments during the Wednesday night premiere. The Benefit crew fawned over Tara's contouring and her strong lip and smokey eye game. They asked to borrow Kelly Ripa's killer stilettos. And Vivica A. Fox thanked them for telling her that she looks GOOD. If you believe Benefit's slogan that "laughter is the best cosmetic," consider their Sharknado 2 tweets a free sample.
