Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

The Benefit in Greenbelt 5

I had work last December 15 which is why I wasn't able to catch the 11am launch of Benefit Philippines, but that didn't stop me from dropping by later in the afternoon to check out the store. Like the brand, its local store is all pink and cheeky, with big white budoirs and rose-patterned wallpaper.

Things you must do while inside: swatch everything, get a makeover from their well-trained counter assistants, and try the Brow Bar! Read my sneak peek post for product photos + complete price list.

So, without further ado, here's a tour of the place!

All the makeup is neatly laid out for you to try

The Brow Bar! Try to get an appoinment first before going in, as there may be a lot of people scheduled

Lip stuff and eye makeup

Lipstick in Shy. I so badly want this, but I have too many lipsticks as it is. Self control!

Gorgeous fragrance display

Best sellers are all prominently displayed on the shelves

Holiday sets! These are totally worth the price since you get full plus travel sizes, allowing you to try a bunch of best-sellers for less

Benefit makes good skincare, surprisingly. Been using the Facial Emulsion moisturizer ever since I got it!

And that's it! Congrats, Aubrey and Luxe Asia for a successful launch! We're all happy that Benefit is finally here. :D

Sooo...have you visited the store yet? What did you get?

The Benefit store is in Greenbelt 5, beside Shiseido. They will open in Rustan's soon!
