nice to meet you…cherie

Benefit fans, meet Dear Deer Cherie. She’s the unofficial Benefit mascot and lives in our lovely lobby, silently welcoming everyone who passes through our doors. Let’s learn more about the one and only deer here at Benefit HQ!

meet Dear Deer Cherie!

I’m most inspired by…the Benefit Creative Services team, led by my fearless owner Shannon.

The five things I love/can’t live without…

  • the Benefit receptionist aka Director of First Impressions, Leslie.  She keeps me company all day long!
  • fabulous hats
  • the holidays…I love any excuse to dress up!
  • benetint
  • my little fireplace…SF is chilly!

When I need creative inspiration…I go to a little town in Sonoma called Sebastopol, CA.  It’s where I was born!

I read…the Benefit catalog religiously.


The one Benefit product I swear by is…full-finish lipstick lipstick in flirt alert…it’s my signature shade, baby!

My favorite place in San Francisco…the gorgeous pink offices at Benefit Beauty Central. I’m definitely the luckiest deer in the city!



My favorite Benefit moment…it hasn’t happened yet, but I’m working on convincing Jean & Jane to name a lipstick in my honor.  Fingers (hooves?) crossed…
