Benefit is a wildly popular brand worldwide, not just because of their cheeky names and packaging but also because their products deliver exactly what they promise. Ever heard of Benetint? This cult classic has actually been around since the 70s, when twins Jean and Jane Ford started a backyard business selling cosmetics. Over the years, it has become one of the most well-known cheek colors and one of Benefit's top-selling products.
The brand is finally arriving in the Philippines this December 15, and I want to show you what to expect! Think cute and vintage-y interiors, our fave Benefit products (of course), and friendly prices that matches Hong Kong's. Yes, the Benefit here is reasonably priced and is actually cheaper than in Singapore! You can check out the complete price list at the end of this post.
Okay, ready to see what happened at the blogger sneak peek in the Benefit office? Here goes!
That's Aubrey, the brand manager of Benefit Philippines! She's super nice and cheery, fits right in with the Benefit philosophy.
The bloggers having their day with Benefit makeup!
Some Kinda Gorgeous, the foundation "faker". It's light coverage but evens out skin wonderfully.
Hello Flawless! is a heavy coverage powder foundation. Best for those with problem skin!
The famous tints! Moon Beam, Cha Cha Tint (which I have and will review!), High Beam, Posie Tint, and of course Benetint
Let's not forget the blushes, which are also cult favorites! They have seven here.
Lipsticks. I tried on Shy and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. Should I? Should I not? I have tons of lipsticks already!
The Erase Paste is a concealer that puts the "cream" in cream concealer. Boi-ing is supposed to be an industrial strength concealer.
Powder shadows come in a selection of high-enhancing colors. No crazy colors here.
The Stay Don't Stray eye and concealer primer is one of my top picks. I should have gotten this waaahh. But I already reserved it and will purchase on opening day. :D So can't wait for that!
I also found this tinted moisturizer most promising. It's very light and goes on beautifully.
Benefit also brought in their professional brushes
Sweet n' sophisticated fragrances
And now, for the price list:
Hope you found this helpful! The inevitable question: WHAT BENEFIT PRODUCT ARE YOU GETTING ON DECEMBER 15? You will find Benefit beside Shiseido in Greenbelt 5 (where Jurlique was). But in the meantime, DO follow Benefit Philippines on Facebook! I will also have reviews for you soon!
