First Encounters: Benefit in the Philippines.

BeneFit Philippines Soft Launch

For sure, you ladies already know that Benefit Cosmetics is already in the Philippines, since its soft launch last December. I had the opportunity to take a sneak peek at them goodies.

I’ve been a fan of Benefit since I owned one of their best selling products the first time — Benefit Dandelion. I also love the cult favourite, Benetint. In fact, I bought a Pocketpal (Benetint + Transparent Gloss) during my first visit in Singapore. I’m so happy that they finally set their first ever flagship store in Greenbelt 5, since I don’t have to buy Benefit products elsewhere. I used to get mine abroad, either by going to Sephora or ordering online; both of which is quite expensive.

Back at the launch, I was able to taste one of these yummy cupcakes, featuring BeneBabes Simone, Gabby and Betty amongst others.

To my surprise, prices here in the Philippines are way cheaper than that of Singapore’s. As told by the brand manager, they keep the prices aligned with Hong Kong’s. By definition of cheap, I can’t say that they really are affordable. Prices range from Php 900 – 3000, which is a bit steep for someone who’s on budget. But, comparing to prices in other countries, I should say that I’d rather purchase Benefit in Manila anytime of the day.

I went to Singapore just recently, and didn’t mind shopping for Benefit since I got what I needed (and I’m more likely to shop in Manila). Thank you very much Benefit Philippines for these goodies.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t use my gift cheque since I’m currently out of the country. 🙁 But, but, I brought with me two of the coolest loots I got: Benefit Benetint, a lip and cheek tint that I religiously use, and Brows A-go-go, a nifty brow colouring and fixing set. 😉

I’d love to post separate reviews of each products in the future, as soon as I have more time to do so. xx
