Back to the weekend after my birthday, I was invited to celebrate Benefit Cosmetics' first standalone boutique first anniversary. Well, all good things happened in the month of September (; It was a pretty exclusive event cause it's only for selected bloggers who are born in the month of September but the best part is you'll get to bring along 5 guests! Of course, being a big fan of Benefit Cosmetics, I agreed without hesitation and brought along my elder sister and Joeann with me.
|In case you don't know, Benefit Cosmetics boutique is in 1 Utama Shopping Center.|
Located on the same row with Topshop, it's impossible to miss this shop with the truckloads of pinkness.
|Love how most of the decors and furniture are in pink too (✿ ♥‿♥)|
|Yummy mini beef pies and pink guava juice were served.|
|What's a birthday without a cake right? And this my friend, is the beautiful birthday cake! Perfectly done with the tiniest details, so cute that even it's edible, I don't think I want to eat it.|
|Once registration is done, the event started off with the traditional candle blowing ceremony for the September babies.|
|Felt like celebrities surrounded by paparazzi with the camera's flash flashing at us and having our photos taken when we blew the candles teehee (*ﾉωﾉ)|
|The compulsory shot with the birthday cake :D|
|Little birdy wanna join in the fun as well :P|
|Introducing Gimme Brow, brow-volumizing fiber gel that comes with two different shades (light/medium & medium/deep). Now available at all Benefit counters and official retailers in Malaysia selling at RM85 each!|
|The make up artist briefly explained the product before demonstrating on how it works.|
Model of the day: Kahmon.
|Working on the magic wand....anddddd be prepared to be amazed by the result!|
|TADAAA! You could see the instant effect on the right brow where it appears fuller and more voluminous. It's easy to apply and most importantly, it looks very natural, no?|
I shall do a review on Gimme Brow in a separate post (:
After the demonstration, it was time for the beauty bloggers to experience The Great Browzini themselves.
While waiting for my turn, I took the opportunity to walk around the store and check out the cosmetics they have.
|The best selling POREfessional, Benetint and How to Look The Best in Everything kit. Don't you secretly wish you can bring back all of these home?|
|Before | After|
Having well defined and perfectly shaped brows that suit your face does make a huge impact to your appearance. This look was achieved by using the Instant Brow Pencil and High Brow.
My verdict: Loving it ♥♥♥
|Looks like some minor surgery is going on with all the waxing tools.|
Before waxing your brow, the BA will ask you a few simple questions and test the wax on your hand.
|Hi Shin Chan! I love those words on the cape I'm wearing :P|
Besides brow waxing, Benefit Cosmetics provide body and also facial waxing services.
|Knowing that Benefit Cosmetics has always been the brow expert since 1976, I know I'm in good hands.|
I'll just have to sit back, relax and let the experts do what they do best.
|Look at my wide grin, well I'm actually screamng in the inside cause of the pain HAHAHA jkjk|
|There you go, my unwanted brows T___T NO PAIN NO GAIN yaw!|
|The aftermath // Goodbye untidy brows, hello clean and sleek brows!|
The whole process didn't take long, less than 15 minutes.
Fret not if there's redness around the eyebrow areas after waxing, it's totally normal (:My verdict: Worth the pain ♥♥♥♥
|Other September babies getting their brows makeover too (:|
|Just some final touch up with eyebrow and I'm good to go.|
|My final look ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ What do you think? |
One my friend commented that I have the Korean eyebrows.
|Group photo with all the September babies :D|
|Doing what girls do best, SELCA! ヽ(＾Д＾)ﾉ|
It's been a while since I last attended event like this, so it was delightful to see some familiar and new faces.

|Joeann and I (:|
|Pardon me, I obviously can't have enough of my new brows HEH|
|Thanks Benefit for having us, we girls sure had a fun time together at the birthday bash!|
|Not to forget the goodie bag as well, 5 full sized items including the new Gimme Brow! How generous (≧∇≦) There's even a happy birthday note with my name on it. Thanks so much, again!|
|Ending this post with another vain selfie :P|
