Are you a Benefit fan? Because I am and I can’t wait to share with you guys my experience attending to one of their event called “Lets Fake Up – It’s a Party!!!”.
When I received an email invitation from Box Culture on the Benefit Party event, my heart was thrilled with excitement. In order to reserve the seat, we need to make payment about RM20 and this amount is refundable at the event. I was the first who confirmed to attend.
The event was held on 01 June 2013 (It’s Saturday baby) at Benefit Boutique located at 1 Utama (New Wing). The Theme is “Fake-Up”. At first I was bit uncertain what to wear on that day. So, that morning I grab cute floral pink dress (because its summer), Trench Coat (that I got from Primark – during my trip in London), a hat (that I got from Melaka), a pink stripe heels and my beloved Mini Tanner.

When I reached at the 1 Utama lobby area, I noticed few people were looking at me suspiciously and I knew why. But I don’t want to bother so much because I dressed for the theme. And I pretty sure there are few girls that will dress-up more funky and havoc than me.
So, I reached at their Registration Counter at 10.45am. That was my first time encounter with the two lovely ladies, Ms. Lee Yen and Ms. Sze Yoong, the founder of Box Culture. They also introduced me to the owner of Plasterdolls, Ms. Jessica Wong. I loved their Cosmobox April 2013 Edition when they collaborated with Plasterdolls (Its their Bumper Month). At the registration counter I was given the RM20 benefit voucher (see, I told you its refundable) for me to shop around.
Before the event start, I mingled around and look at their collections. I am so adore with their make-up palettes. There are varies to choose from and It has been my all time favorite. Not only that, I’ve tried their brow and upper lip wax service at their brow bar. It was bit hurt (it was my first time). All this while, I am so used to threading (so traditional, rite?). I felt little bit of tingling sensation (cheewah!!). It appears that their Brow Bar service is their signature service. Do take note that the service is not only limited to brows and upper lips. You may extend to wax whole body (if you want). Well the price for wax service for brows and upper lips is RM55. Since that they have a promo that day, lucky me they charged for both services at RM38 (I have the RM20 voucher ~ yuhuuu (> . <)).

The event then started with an introduction and history of Benefit Cosmetics. Then they proceeded with a make-up demo for summer and not to forget the tips and tricks how to apply their latest arrival; “Fake Up”. It is a crese-control hydrating concealer with Vitamin E and Apple Seed Extract which hides dark circles and diffuses fine lines. Have you come across any concealer with hydrating ring surrounding it? Well, it was my first and I have gotten mine when they launched it in early April 2012.

Then come to the fun part. At the end of the event they announced who is the winner for the best dress of the day. And guess who? Yeay!!! It was my happy day. I received Benefit Hamper worth RM325. Besides, I received a complimentary door gift by Benefit and Box Culture. Not only that, I purchased the lip and cheek stains (posie tint, cha cha tint and sun beam) for RM65 and I received cute speaker by Benefit. (Its my best buddy in office now).
