AMW Reports: Benefit Philippines Turns 1 + Giveaway!

Congratulations to ---
Carmi Compasivo
It was a year ago when I pass by Greenbelt 5 looking at the "Benefit Coming Soon" sign and at the back of my head imagining the things I would buy!  Would you believe a year has passed and when you look at my current makeup collection, I've got so much Benefit products!   The brand definitely doesn't fail in terms of making ME and my clients happy!

When I got an invite to be part of Benefit's First Year Anniversary here in the Philippines last Saturday, I changed my clothes (coming from an early makeup gig) and picked a bright pink top because that's all I can do to brighten up my looks as I'm too lazy to wear any makeup!  

Side note:  I'm not sure if its because of the pregnancy but I'm seriously getting lazy to apply makeup on myself!  *laughs*

Because of traffic, I missed the opening remarks hosted by Bianca Valerio but I didn't miss the rest of the party!  Shall we?


Yummy Red Velvet cupcake with Benefit Products printed on top! 



Some more pastries that I can't believe I missed having a bite!  
You could say I'm having regrets now!  hahaha

Gorgeously packed bundles great for Christmas gift-giving!


It was super crowded that time but I was able to take a peek at the newest product offering by the brand!  This product is said to be the brightening color for both cheeks and lips!  

Benefit Fine One One (Think about 911) 
to the rescue! 

Fine One One comes with three shades to LIFT, SHAPE and POP!  
(Pink Champagne, Sheer Watermelon and Soft Coral)

 

The product is not available for me to purchase during the event, I was told it would be available locally comes January 2013 for Php1,700.00 (approx $42.50)

As I was enjoying some snacks while catching up with Jane Kingsu...

 

Trixie Reyna, Liz Lanuzo

Shen and Aubrey,
 

I was asked by Benefit's Trainer from Singapore Tiffany if I would like to have my brows done at the Benefit Brow Bar.  I immediately whispered in Chinese Mandarin if its safe for a pregnant woman and she immediately exclaimed: "OF COURSE!"  



Super clean and well-groomed brows!  Thank goodness as I haven't fixed my brows for a long time!!!  This photo proved that a set of well-groom brows makes a whole difference even without blush and lipstick on!  *laughs*  (Come on, just agree with me okay? Pretty please?)
 

As I was heading out of the boutique, I was stopped by Tiffany and asked if I would like her to fix some darkness under the eye area and probably moisturize my super dry face (I must've looked like a walking disaster then!  hahaha) Who can say no with that offer?  And come on!  She's a Benefit Trainer from Singapore!  I want to learn so much more!


Thanks Tiffany for the chat and for the quick, very easy tip on how to moisturize my super dry skin mid-day!


Last but not the least, I had to take a picture with this cute Porefessional cart with Benefit Philippines' Brand Manager, Ms. Aubrey Bautista.


Before I end this post, I'm sure some of you are excited with the giveaway I was talking about over my Facebook page.   Are you ready?
ONE lucky winner will get to try Benefit's Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Sugarbomb!  Is that going to be YOU???

  41. Hi achi nikki,

    Im a friend of grace and she told me to check out your lovely beauty blog (^u^), and i have been reading most of your recent blogs and i just would like to say that 你是一个很美丽的姐姐(^u^) 和 恭喜! 恭喜你很快就要当妈妈了! 恭喜恭喜!

    If i was given the chance to own one, i really would like to have the confessions of a concealaholic kit and the away we go glitz and glam make up set. Its because i love to travel and my mom tells me to travel light and plus the container box was designed so lovely and dainty. i checked out their website and learned how it can be applied to the face cause they gave a link on lessons how to apply it on for newbies on doing makeup like myself (^u^) so still user friendly. 对我来说这些东西真的很好跟有用。我当然会喜欢用这些。

    Thank you for this achi(^u^) if i can win this ultraplush lipgloss in sugarbomb, it would be my first!
