AMW Reports: This is what you call a Benefit BeauTEA Party!

Happy Friday!
I had a tough week!  Well, for the first time, our house was flooded when it rained last Monday, our househelp left because she has to take care her husband who got into an accident so it was just me, Keith and Kyle when the water was starting to rush in our first floor!  Thank God for "Jumperoo", I had to put Kyle at a Jumperoo and help Keith save all his toys and play mat!!!  

And mid-week, Kyle got sick, his temperature shot to 39+ and he was shivering during sleep!  We rushed him to his Pedia and found nothing so he is on medication and we're making sure he's taking a lot of rest!

Yeah, I'm glad it's Friday, though being a mommy, we technically do not have weekends but it is nice to know we survived the whole week with a happy disposition still.

And speaking about weekends, I kinda missed my Benefit Workshops so it was an opportunity for me to take a "Grou-fie" with these gorgeous Benebabes during an intimate Blogger meet up at TWG, BGC Central Square.

What's the buzz on Benefit's BeaTEA party?


New products to look forward to!  Let me tell you, some of them could be small but the effect is HUMONGOUS!

Benefit Rock-itude
  • High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer
  • Benetint Cheek and Lip Tint
  • Rockateur Cheek Powder with brush
  • Rockateur Ultra Plush Lip Gloss
Whenever someone asks me what to buy at Benefit Counters, I always suggest sets because you get to try various Benefit bestsellers at an affordable price!  And seriously, the sample sizes are good enough for you to use at least a week or more!  And the best part?  I use these minis to take with me when I travel!

P.S. I love Rockateur Blush and it works for almost all skin tone!

Benefit Majorette
This is a cream-to-powder booster blush. You can wear this underneath your powdered blush or wear this alone for a nice pink-peach flush.  I have given this a try during the event and I was in love!  The cream applies like a dream and the scent is amazing!  Though the color may look crazy on pan, it gives a soft, cotton candy shade effect that works even for the fairest skin!  If you have medium to darker skin?  Dap a bit more!

Bathina "Just Confess You're Obsessed"
Benefit Specialist Instant Comeback Facial Serum

Bathina cream and oil has been a favorite of mine when I do makeup for shoots and brides.  BUT, there are people who are addicted with Bathina scent so Benefit came up with a moisturizing hair and body mist that aims to hydrate AND make you smell awesome at the same time! 

When it comes to skincare, Benefit's B.Right has always been straigthforward and simple (for a Blogger's point of view).  BUT!  Benefit finally heard the woes of users like me who likes anti-aging skincare products!  Benefit Instant Comeback Facial Serum is the first serum from the brand.  This product is meant to be applied on a clean face to instantly hydrates, refreshes and revitalizes tired skin!

and the serum goes hand-in-hand with the rest of the Benefit skincare line.

    1. if we're talking about tint, I'm a chachatint and lollitint girl! but I agree with you about Benetint though! You just have to try Majorette!

  2. Wow! This looks like a tremendous amount of fun!


  3. Super type ko your top! bagay sayo! Will check out The Flower Collection! I see them around Shangrila I think.

  4. My current love is Lollibalm! I thought it would be posie but then I noticed that the shade kinda "changed". I remember posie tint being pink. But when I swatched posie balm, it seemed to me more like peachy pink. Anyway, the lollibalm looked purple on stick, but when applied on my lips, it's more like mauve pink. It kinda matches my lip color, actually. So I love it! It's good for those lazy days when I don't want to look too made up!

    1. I know what you mean about Lolli! I used to think it is too much of a weird shade but it really suits our skin tone!

      Thanks for your feedback


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
