#FriendsWithBenefitPH Blogger Event

You want to know how it feels like to be #FriendsWithBenefitPH?  Well, it felt really good!
I am lucky to be invited with a few blogger friends to join the Benefit Philippines Team for an intimate get-together at La Creperie.

Food, makeup, bonding --- that is more than enough for me!  But as always, Benefit always gives more!

Even if I've done a couple of workshops with the brand, they were quite "mum" about what was in store for us during the intimate gathering.  So I am as surprised as the rest of the bloggers were when I saw THIS!

I know Benefit Products by heart, so at first glance, I can immediately spot what's up and coming!

 For the next few months, there will be new products worth saving up for!

New from the Porefessional Line --- Licence to Blot.  Don't confuse this with the Porefessional Balm!  The Porefessional Balm is used as a primer to minimize pores.  The Porefessional Agent Zero Shine is a loose powder used to "set" or maybe for quick touch-ups.  And this --- works the same as your favorite oil-control films!  This help remove shine and oil and can last up to 6 hours!  Retail price will be Php1,100.00!

Then I spotted more They're Real products!  The top-selling They're Real Mascara will come in different shades --- Blue and Brown joining their Black counterpart.  They're Real Push-Up Liner Black on the other hand will have sisters ---- Blue, Brown, Green and Aubergine!  

I remembered asking Benefit US team during my press visit with them last year if they will be coming up with a different shade (in my mind, was hoping for just a brown).  They gave me this knowing look and said: "We'll see!"  A year after, who would've thought they grant my wish and made it even better?  With more shades to choose from?  (Read my review on They're Real Push-Up Liner here)

Then, when our hearts settled from all the excitement.  We were introduced to the National Brow Artist for the Philippines --- Ms. Celina Fernandez.

I've met Celina on several occasions so many times but never have I tried her Brow Waxing Skills.  Luckily, I was asked to be their "brow wax model" for the day and I couldn't be any more happier!

Now I understand why she was chosen as the National Brow Artist, she has hands as soft as feathers, her brow waxing skills are amazing!  I don't feel any pain at all and time flew by so quickly with her random brow massages!  Look for her at Trinoma branch!

And just when you are worrying and wondering if it's worth to spend all the money to have your brows waxed?  Well, you can try it first for free!  How?  By visiting and have your photo uploaded and Benefit will do the rest!  After seeing the photos, I'm sure you will never believe how good your brows can look!

 If you're wondering why my brows are on the right track and you probably didn't see much difference on my before and after photo is because I always have my brows done at the Benefit!  I am a loyal customer so I'm glad my brows are looking good all thanks to them!  Now all I need to do is use the right product to keep my brows looking prim and proper! :)

Congratulations Benefit Philippines team!  As always the event was great!  We all had fun!!!

      Re: waxing, you should let them know all the medications you're taking, sometimes if they think you shouldn't have the service done, they'll tell you upfront!
