I attended my first Benefit event in the form of the Benefit Beauty Confessions Blogger Party held last May 30, 2012.
Now one of the highlights of the party was the introduction of The POREfessional. It’s an oil-free cream that minimizes pores and fine lines. Each of us got to take home a tube so I’ll be posting a review soon.
Anyhow, we were told that we could choose to take home any product on the table above in exchange for a beauty confession that answers the question “Have you ever faked it?” from us which would be recorded on video. Hmm… you can confess 2-3x I think, then take home 2-3 products.
I made two confessions:
- During my grossly obese days (basically the whole of 2011), I would crop my photos in such a way that my flabby arms would not show so much… so in a way, yes, it’s faking it. I still looked fat of course but had I not cropped it would have been worse. XD
- I fake it all the time with my hair. The hair I was born with is like something out of a troll’s nightmare — thick, coarse, wavy in all the wrong places… I have it rebonded regularly so yeah, in a way my hair is always faking it. :p
So for confessing all this fakery, I took home the following products:
- Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow SPF 25 PA+++ Brightening Make-Up in Petal, simply because practically everyone at the event was raving about it.
- Benefit It’s Potent Eye Cream, since dark undereye circles are my perennial problem.
Then we were introduced to the ultimate brow book entitled “Raising Eyebrows” by Cameron Tuttle. It will be sold in limited quantities at all Benefit stores for P999. “Raising Eyebrows” contains everything you need to know in order to achieve fabulous brows. It’s a hardcover book with full-color pages too.
Make-up artist Mica demonstrated sprucing up eyebrows the Benefit way. See how much neater and more defined Ines’ brows are afterwards?
Then we played Truth or Dare, Benefit style. They even have their own custom spinner, haha!
You pick either a Truth or Dare card depending on where the arrow lands. Then you follow the instructions on the card… either you answer the question truthfully or do the dare that’s specified on it.
It was a really fun evening! Full product reviews to follow so stay tuned!
Benefit products are available at the Benefit counters at Rustan’s Department Stores and Benefit boutiques in Greenbelt 5 and Trinoma.
