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.

Aubrey Bautista

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™‚

with fellow blogger Earthling Rullan

BENE Celebrities VIP

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.

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!

Sephora experience

I love beauty store, it has the same effect on me when I am in a bookstore: Euphoria

Sephora store in Singapore

Benefit

 

Urban Decay

 

 

My favorite purchase πŸ™‚

There’s a lot of types of tweezer and I am amazed… I don’t even know what to pick! My friend just told me, what is my favorite color then go for it πŸ™‚ PINK!

 

If there’s only a Sephora store here, I’ll be a loyal costumer unfortunately we don’t have it here in the Philippines… so for now, it’s a dream come true to shop in Sephora at ION Orchard, Singapore.

I also bought toiletries in econo pack, huge bottles! if only I brought much bigger travel bag. I really love to shop beauty products πŸ™‚

My Make-Up Bag Essentials!

HiΒ  everyone,

What a perfect day to bum πŸ™‚ cancelled all my appointments and end up cleaning up our room and decided to share to you my everyday make-up essentials in my make-u purse. One must have a vanity kit inside her bag to freshen up when time calls. I have met few girls and some of ’em still use baby powder, or let me say… all they have is baby powder for their face and a hair brush, that’s all! Oh my, how I wish that will be enough for me but no πŸ™‚ and that’s okay.

The Make-Up Bag

Make-Up Purse

This adorable make-up bag is from Beauty Bar. It doubles as going-out bag too if you want!Β  It has a hand strap that can be carry around by simply attaching it to the other end as seen on picture above, oh may kili-kili bag ka pa LOL

One of the quality carrier for your most treasured cosmetics which is affordable too πŸ™‚ In my opinion, I rather have a spill of make-up inside the make-up purse than have it all messy inside my bag. It happened to me and never again.

this is a quality carrier for your most treasured cosmetics.

Make-Up Essentials

All that pixie dust πŸ™‚

1. MAC STUDIO FIX in NC 35

Php 1,700++ available in MAC store (Trinoma,Β  Edsa Shang, Greenbelt) I love the not-zombie-effect of this product, similar to my favorite in2it foundation. I just love how long lasting it is and no to cakey foundation! I know MAC will get angry but if I want to double the coverage, all I have to do is add water on the sponge just like the old days! aminin. alam niyo yan πŸ™‚

2. MAC Brush in 116

Php 1,+++ I really forgot the exact price, because whenever I buy MAC brush… eyes closed at the counter! kidding, I am just so happy that I completed all the MAC brush that I need and now sitting pretty on my vanity table πŸ™‚ But as part of my essentials for every day use, 116 is my all around. I swear on that wand! I don’t like using as much as possible sponges or puff? ano bang tawag dun? because I strongly believe as tried and tested, brush is much better! also good for Benefit/NARS blush. Oh dear, bading na bading lang.

3. Maybelline Voum Express Waterproof Mascara

Php 200++ basta di lampas ng 300. I have tried few high end brands of Mascara and so far, nothing beats. I always go back to Maybelline! wish I have those flirty lashes but no,I accepted the fact I have to use a mascara if I want more flirty eyelashes. I only apply this when I have a meeting, making pa-cute with my husband, girl bonding and party. In normal days, nada!

4. Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

Php 1,000.00. The best ever eyelash curler if Chanel will not appear in my make-up tools. I really want to own a Chanel eyelash curler and I have made my name listed in all Chanel make-up store here in Manila, so help me God πŸ™‚ My friends abroad are now helping me. I still got my hopes up! Anyhoo, I highly recommend this tool from Shu Uemura because it last for years! I had mine since College 2006 and had to replaced it.

5. MAC Brow Set in Girl Boy

Php 900++ When Jigs Mayuga one of the top celebrity make-up artist, recommended this to me as I made kulit through twitter! I swear (again) this will be my brow super duper bestfriend! I had a lot of compliments using this product. Sabi nga nila “Kilay Artista” true naman, the makapal one- but hey, not Frida Kahlo kind ha πŸ™‚ it’s a no-no. Always remember that few things make you appear more groomed is have a well-plucked eyebrow. I recommend plucking, shaving or threading. I heard horrifying stories about waxing your eyebrows! it will really sag after 10-15 years if you are in my age right now 26. (yay bukelya) By the way, I normally have my brows done through shaving πŸ™‚

6. Carmex Lip Balm

Php 100.++ I love this, better than burts bee! It really depends on skin type and Carmex is the one for me πŸ™‚ It really makes my lips soft and moisturized. Also, perfectly goes with any lipstick.

7. Revlon Just Bitten

I don’t have any idea how much this product is, sorry πŸ™‚ I love using this in regular basis. It really gives me a natural look… just bitten! I also use this to give a natural rosy cheeks when I don’t have time to put a powder blush.

Enjoy the rainy day! time to snuggle LOL
