Beauty Shopping Trip: Benefit Cosmetics at Rustans Makati

After my long work day, I usually drop-by to some beauty store to check-out some of the newest products and brands that are to share to you, my lovely readers. Last Wednesday (of May 29) I visited Benefit Cosmetics located at Rustans Makati. I heard a lot of good reviews with these brand, so I decided to pay for a visit.

I admired how they conceptualize their products and store design - they have this chic vintage inspired beauty, which are very appealing to me. I also notice that their products are carefully arranged (by order) and I felt like a child in a candy store, wondering around the store and trying out some samples. I recommend you girls to try their liquid foundations (above photo), when you wear it, it feels like you wear nothing make-up, yeah very light weight!

They also have very accommodating staff, one of them is Claudio - my stylist of that day. He patiently discussed to me their products and it's uses and benefits. He also gave me a quick make-over using Benefit Cosmetics, and OMG he is good. I am really impressed with Benefits and to Claudio of course, seems he has this magic brush, that can easily make you even prettier!

Eye Mascara that gives you the perfect volume and beauty that you like.

And yeah, after my make-over and having a store tour - I've bought my new make-up sets and one of these is my new favorite Fake-Up Hydrating Concealer. I am excited to make a separate review with it, so just keep posted.

... and me after Claudio's make-over. Yeah I am fresh-looking and prettier compared to when I arrived at their store (without make-up, lol ) Claudio used Benefit Cosmetics and I've noticed that, it feels lighter to my face. It feels good that I feel like I am not wearing a make-up! Though it's kinda beyond my usual budget, for me Benefit Cosmetic is worth investing.

I will definitely coming back and shop for more!

Here's me and Claudio, my stylist of the day! Thanks Claudio and Benefit Cosmetics Philippines :)
