Last January, I took the chance and ordered some goodies from the Benefit Cosmetics website (www.benefitcosmetics.com) because they are offering FREE International Shipping at that time. The Shipping cost is about $14.00 to the Philippines so; I grabbed the opportunity to buy my most coveted items. There is a high markup if I buy the items in the local counters that is why I went gaga when I learned about the promo.
I received the package just recently, but the post office stamp stated that it reached our country last January 27. It took about 20 days to deliver the items. I was really nervous about this purchase because I had bad experiences with customs before, and my items might get lost in the way. Thank God it didn’t! 🙂 My mom only paid the usual Php 50.00 in the post office.
When I opened the box, it showed my receipt, plus this booklet. It contains all Benefit Cosmetics’ products presented in a very artsy way.
It was wrapped with this white printed thin wrapper, and there was support underneath. They all came in good shape and unopened! 🙂
Below are the items that I bought, and how much each costs in the Philippines. I just researched for the prices, let me know if they have changed. 🙂
Boi-ing ($20)- Php 1,100
Double the Real ($23)- Php 1,600
Rockateur ($28)- Php 1,600
Hoola ($28)- Php 1,600
Gimme Brow ($22)- Php 1,300
I paid $121.00 for everything. I saved about Php 1,500 or more because they are definitely much cheaper in the U.S. As of this day, I already used Hoola and Rockateur, and I am so IN LOVE with them! They are worth every buck! I thought Hoola will not show up on my medium skin, but it did! I will post separate reviews for each, except for They’re Real because I already reviewed that here. Let me know what you want to see first! 🙂
