Benefit Cosmetics (Philippines)

The very first Benefit Boutique will be open in Dec. 15 @ Greenbelt 5

Hi everyone!

Yes, I am that proud for Benefit Cosmetics in Philippines πŸ™‚ and to be part of BENE Celebrity VIP list.

I hugged my husband as I received an electronic invite because I can’t wait to buy Benefit stuff here (instead abroad) and I’m glad he supports my little happiness in beauty products. As the special day has arrived, I asked my friend to tag along who also raves about Benetint and might get a chance to buy some as a stock. Plus my dearest friend who is my photographer in all events, Christian Amiel Tira.

Where the magic happens

As Aubrey Bautista (Brand Manager of Benefit Phil) welcomed us inside the B-spot office, the first room made my world stop. A drooling wide range of make-up testers (all new) with Make-up artists to assist you (not masungit ones) and the special part is, you can try all of it over and over until you find the right one for you as they also provide make-up remover that you’ll feel oh-so refreshed again.

Roxy, one of their Make-up artist introduced me to browzings and fell in love with it. It looks so natural on my brows and made it look well defined. Again, a miracle product that I discovered in Benefit Cosmetics!

Browzings (brow shaping kit)

FYI, complete kit includes: pigmented wax for shaping, natural sheded powder for setting, discreet tweezers, hard angle brush, blending brush and a mirror.

so nice!

I love the discreet tweezers!

Benefit Cosmetics also comes with Holiday package such as project flawless and falalala flawless which will be available on December 15, 2011.

You can really save a lot by buying this wonderful set and I can’t even wait to grab one for my own. The Benefit team also served us yummy-licious goodies πŸ™‚

What's a party without a drink huh? πŸ™‚

I attended the event because I really want to know more tips on how to apply make-up and was even expecting to avail the brow waxing that Benefit offers since they are well known about it aside from quality make-ups that has a luscious smell. I tell yah, it smells good!

I was surprised when Aubrey gave us a paper and write down what we want to take home. (You gotta be kidding me) was the first reaction I have πŸ™‚ It’s expensive and Benefit is generous to grant me theΒ  products that I want to have:

Badgal (Mascara), Nudie-tude (lipgloss), Browzings (brow shaping kit)

Thank you so much for being so generous πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to use it and blog about it.

Wedding Anniversary

Hi everyone!

I grew up with the loving arms of my grandparents who always celebrates birthdays, holidays and anniversary. I love how my lolo daddy makes kilig my grandma every year πŸ™‚

I am so lucky to have that kind of kilig moment with my ex-boyfriend, now husband πŸ™‚

It is hard to think of nice memorable gifts every year when you celebrate Monsary, Anniversary and now Wedding Anniversary as first. Well, I am not hard to please πŸ™‚ mababaw lang kaligayahan ko and I am so into- flowers.We also make it a point to have presents, wrapped beautifully with card πŸ™‚ Magtatampo husband ko pag walang card, me too. There was a time, pa bongahan kami ng card. Bawal ang mura, so we have to keep the tag price haha! We always make our Anniversary special together with birthdays. We both loveΒ  behind-the-scenes on how we get our gifts for each other… in short…kung pa ano nag-effort πŸ™‚ Diba its a nice thought kung paano pinili, bakit pinili at iniisip ano kaya magiging reaction.

My gift for my honey bunny πŸ™‚

 

His gift for me (observe the gift wrapper: :p)

Sofie’s Must Haves

Hi everyone!

I am going to share you the best 3 must haves that never fail me:)

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

With or without occasion… when greeting the world outside with mascara or none, you can never go wrong with Shu Eumura eyelash curler. I always brag about this trusted buddy πŸ™‚ No matter how short your flirty lashes is, this will do the magic alone.

M.A.C. Boy Girl Brow Set

M.A.C Boy Girl Brow Set! πŸ™‚ I’m obsessed with perfect brows and sometime when life gets in the way, I really dramatically forget to visit a salon to clean my rebel brows because sadly I can’t do it myself *le sigh*Β  So, M.A.C brow set is the solution whenever because it really grooms my brows easy as a breeze. But don’t get me wrong! even with groomed brows I always use this as it lightens up my face. It comes in 3 different tubes πŸ™‚

Lipstick

I love lipstick πŸ™‚ it makes me feel so girly and can give you an instant glow. My trusted brands are: M.A.C & NARS. As much I want to be a gloss-type gal, I am not. I only apply one when there’s an occasion in top of my favorite lipstick.

M.A.C: Russian Red (don’t be afraid to wearΒ  lipstick), Pink Shade: Pink Nouveau, Girl About Town and limited edition Lady Gaga and Please Me. (you can never go wrong with pink shades anyway, just find the right one for you πŸ™‚

NARS: (I only buy the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil) Red Shade: Dragon Girl and Cruella Pink shade: New Lover

 

Its fun being a girl…. I swear!

Twilight: Breaking Dawn

Original Cover from Fully Booked (Php 399.00) free cover protection πŸ™‚

Hi everyone!

The first time I saw the movie Twilight… I know I’ll be hooked! I am a sucker for love stories and the like. I watched it all over and over because it was hypnotizing πŸ™‚ the chemistry plus the story is just too damn good in the movie so I didn’t bother to buy the book because when it comes to series in paperbacks, am not really a fan. To make the story short… I watched the following twilight saga by collecting DVD (to watch and watch it all over) then- Breaking Dawn came. As I watched the movie, all I did was giggle, laugh, tensed and the feeling of “OMG! now what?”

Since the part two will be (hopefully) launched next year… I had a sleepless night wanting to know what happened next. I lust to buy an e-book that very moment but couldn’t find a reliable source or simply a free download paradise… I woke up today and finished all my wifey duties then had an hour of rest to make sure my illness won’t attack me the moment I stepped out the house (vertigo, just happened last week/ friday)

As I braved the outside world, I am so giddy with a friend to hunt the book. I went to NBS (National Bookstore) but unfortunately they don’t have the original cover of the breaking dawn. The only available was the super big book that cost Php600.00 and the mass book (small) for Php 325.00. But as a book lover, once the story of the book hits the silver screen… I really dislike celebrity covers. It is not so- appealing from the luxurious pages of the book.

As I continue to search for braking dawn, Powerbooks (sister company of NBS) doesn’t also have the original cover. I was just losing hope… but fully booked saved the day! It might be a little expensive than NBS but heck, they provide free covering of books that you bought. Its a win-win situation! fyi, Powerbooks charges Php 30.00 for the cover of one book.

So, I bought the book and go home happy. Don’t get me wrong, I started to read on Chapter 18 already where I was so damn bitin from where the movie ended.

πŸ™‚ Happy Thanksgiving!
