Benefit and I, we are not friends. There I said it. Why? Well, many years ago Benefit Malaysia uses us, a group of bloggers to do a giveaway for them in order to create some hype for them. And when that is done, they have gotten what they want and the left without saying thank you or good bye. So, now they only get people who is famous or celebrity so-called to whatever they do. I am one who do not support Benefit Malaysia regardless how tempting some of their limited edition launches are.
Today I was randomly browsing Sephora Malaysia online for new product releases and stumbled upon this 2017 Cheek Parade palette. What caught my eyes is the new GALifornia, which was just launched not even a month ago. If you have GALifornia in this palette, shoot! I am half sold. Half because I am (still) not going to spend on Benefit. Hah!
The price: RM290. Not too bad considering there are 2 new shades – GALifornia and Hoola Lite. But do you need a 300 bucks blush palette and it is just Benefit? No you do not. I would take the money and buy Hourglass or Tarte or Marc Jacobs. Unless you are a hardcore fan of the brand then go ahead lol.
This palette will only be launching in April 2017 and we already have it in Sephora.my!
How to get the best from what you paid?
Coincidentally Sephora.my is having some weekly promotion on their website and Benefit has a GWP promo. If you spend RM240 and above on Benefit products, you will get this 3-piece gift set.
That is not all. Besides getting free shipping, you also get to choose sample for your purchase. The sample gets better and better the more you purchase. In this case, a Kat Von D Mini Studded Kiss Lipstick in Cathedral is in the sample list. Go ahead. Throw this in your shopping bag.
Am I tempted in any way? Of course? I am a beauty enthusiast and anything beauty always tempt me. But not until I need to buy it otherwise I could not sleep. Nah, I am still not supporting Benefit LOL. I still have my gorgeous Tarte 10-blush palette to dig into.
