Unboxing: BDJ X Benefit Beauty Box March 2014
Recently, Spygal-care of BDJ-sent me a beauty box containing her secret weapons. Hmmm...could it be her 'thank you' gift for my participation in her daunting missions? :D
Benefit Cosmetics Philippines has just collaborated with BDJ for a special beauty box for March 2014. Wondering what's inside? Click READ MORE for the unboxing.
Voila! The box contains samples of some of Benefit's best- sellers. Let's break 'em down one by one.
You get a sachet sample of the new Agent Zero Shine powder, which is good for single use only. The Porefessional Pore Minimizer, on the other hand, is good for around two to three.
We also got two cardboard samples of Stay Flawless 15-hour Makeup Primer-one sample is good for two uses so both could last four. Stay Don't Stay Eye Primer will last you for a good week or two, depending on how often you wear eyeshadow.
Under My Spell Noelle is the latest addition to Crescent Row fragrances. I got a half- filled sample and I emptied the whole thing once because I use perfume a lot-it's a bit strong for my liking so I think I have to use it for a few more times to know if my nose can adjust to it. I also have to point out that my sample is leaking, but I don't know if it's the same with the other boxes. Finally, we have a 5ml sample of Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation, which is good for around 3-4 uses. This is a deluxe sample so it's enough for you to gauge if you'll like the product or not.
Total value of the box is a little over P500.00, I believe, and you literally got what you paid for. I'm a little disappointed with the box, to be honest, because I have never been a fan of sachet samples. Because I believe that it will take you a week or two to know if you'll like a product or not, and that's simply impossible to find out if you get samples that will only last you for a day or two. It would be nicer also if we got at least one full- sized product in the box because BDJ has set that standard for us in their previous boxes-that's just my expectation so I don't know if this is the same for others. If the brand cannot provide full- sized ones, Deluxe Samples will absolutely do because they'll definitely last for a week or more, plus they come handy. Still and all, I find it forgivable because BDJ has had a pretty good run and all brands just have their day.
Leaving you with a feel- good quote from BDJ and Benefit!
