AMW Reports: Benefit Grand Launch + Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow

Happy Saturday Gorgeous!
What are you up to this weekend?  I have a lot on my plate but don't worry, before I head on to do my tasks and stuff my face with food *salivates* I won't leave you without a report on my most recent Benefit event that I attended!  Boy oh boy!  It was fun, star-studded and so....BENEFIT!

 **this particular photo grabbed from Benefit FB Page

The event started with a heart-pumping dance number "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and I can't help but sway left to right and tried my best not to break into my own 80's shindig!  *laughs*

General manager of Benefit Cosmetics Southeast Asia, Ms. Elisa Stad, welcomed everyone with a huge smile!  Benebabes seriously have all the energy!!!

The highlight of the grand launch was the appearance of BeneSisters Maggie and Annie Ford Danielson. They shared to us a bit on how Benefit started

Here's an interesting fact that I learned during the event, you girls may have known this but ---
Did you know that?
Jean & Jane Ford originally created the rose flushed tint (Benetint) for an exotic dancer who was in need of a nipple tint?
Thank you Ms. Exotic Dancer!  *laughs*

Going back, the event continued when the winners of Hi San Francisco rocked the stage with their "new look"!  I love the confidence they exude I can see even far off the stage!  Benefit really picked the right winners!

Though my blogger friends did not strut on stage, I think they deserve to have their gorgeous faces and sexy outfits posted here!

Then, I have to glue my eyes back on stage!  You'll know why *winks*

An angel came appeared on stage....and sorry, my eyes wasn't glued on her but....the cupid in suit! Troy Montero!  *laughs*  Okay, don't get me wrong, I'm not really a model/actor fan girl but he is HANDSOME!
As important as having Annie and Maggie here for the Grand Launch, tonight marks the launch of Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow!


Out of Stock on Benefit US Website, raved by many beauty bloggers worldwide....
"Hello…it’s flawless time! Our new oil-free brightening liquid foundation builds from light to medium coverage for a natural complexion you can believe in. It’s you…just more luminous & healthy looking."
I thought seeing and meeting Annie and Maggie was enough to make the event a spectacular one, the sisters went up on stage to do a make up demonstration on 2 lovely girls.

Celebrity Stylist 
Alyanna Martinez

A full-faced, super natural make up was done on both girls.  The beauty bloggers in the house moved closer to the stage!  *laughs*  You can't blame us!  We're talking about make up application here!

The event was an obvious success!  Congratulations to team Benefit Philippines too!
