Benefit Sale @ PJ Hilton…

This is for all you Benefit lovers in KL/PJ today and tomorrow…

Yup, Benefit started their sale for some of their bestsellers today until 6.30pm, and tomorrow (Sat) from 9.30am to 5.00pm. As for me, I popped by to have a look at the sale this morning before I went in to work (oops…). The selections are limited though and of the standard range, so those hoping to get products like Posie Tint and Powderflage won’t find them.

What they do have is an extensive range of Benefit’s Silky Finish Lipsticks, Creaseless Shadowliners and skin fixers like Some Kinda Gorgeous (only deep), Get Even and Powder Play. The prices are decent too – since Benefit is expensive in Malaysia, my benchmark was the prices on the US site and even then the discounts are substantial. The lipsticks are going for RM35 each (NP: USD18), Showoffs at RM20 (NP: USD16) and compacts from RM30-RM60 (NP: USD26-USD28)

Which brings me to my haul…hehe…you all knew this was coming right? :D I didn’t go completely beserk, but still picked up a few items…

Get Even pressed powder in Medium – this was RM30 since it came without a box or sponge (RM40 if you want the full set) NP: USD30

Betty Brushes Up On Beauty Bag – this comes with four mini brushes for RM50 (usual in-market price is RM230!), or just RM20 for the case without the brushes (on the US website, just the case is USD20)

And last but definitely the big highlight of my trip there…

Benefit’s Powder Pop!! *you can just imagine me squealing at the top of my voice* I’ve been lemming for this compact ever since seeing it on Sephora. It’s a limited edition compact containing Dandelion, Hoola and Dallas as well as a mini brush – to be honest, I was so bent on getting my paws on it previously that I even asked Paris to try and bring one back for me when she went to Hong Kong (price be damned, but they didn’t have it either). I happened to see a few sitting at one corner of the display table, and quickly snapped one up!

The price for the Powder Pop? Some of the prices I saw online ranged between USD30 and £19.50…I picked mine up for RM90…it’s not THAT much cheaper, but after searching high and low and FINALLY finding it, I *heart*!!

:( I wanna go but my friend brought me to my senses. I don't have a single Benefit product that I really really wanna get thus it's unwise to be splurging mindlessly. ARGH!! *sobs* glad you got such cool stuff though!!

My friend said that it was invitation only. Did you have one?

That's so lucky of you to get the powder pop, it sounds lovely. =) I have always wanted all the dandelion and other hoola thingy(cant remember the name lol) RM90 isn't too bad since you got everything in it^^

im def going to try check it out tomorrow. especially since the deepavali angpau has just come in. hence this will rather be considered saving! :) was just wodnering how much the creaseless shadow/liner thingy's are.. i think their normal prices are about rm 85 or 90.

心。葵: hey plue, all the shadows are about RM20-40..that's like half price! :)

prettybeautiful: well, the selection was quite limited and for their classics - if you want the new stuff, will still have to go back to the website..hehe..

askmewhats: err...this one I dunno how to answer la babe.. :) fly over?

cyndi: yup! it was even better since it's a limited edition item and hard to find.. :)

jessie: the powder pop is a half-size (5g each) of Hoola, Dandelion and Dallas..so you get 15g of powder in total compared to the usual 10g sizes..hehe..

ancient: deepavali angpow? hehe..the shadowliners are about RM40 if I'm not mistaken - the showoffs are RM20 each..have fun! :D

could you review the brushes? I have a voucher in australia that says if i spend $100 i get the whole brush set for free (worth $75). I'm just wondering if its worth to spend the $100 now just to get the brushes
