In 2011, Benefit Cosmetics launched They’re Real jet black mascara which became the #1 Prestige Mascara in the US and the #1 Selling Prestige Makeup in the UK. Three years later, They’re Real Push-Up Liner in matte black was introduced to the family, which became the #1 Prestige Eyeliner in the US.

So what’s next for Benefit? Midway into this year, Benefit has delivered another product game-changer- a whole new range of They’re Real Mascara and Push-Up Liner in bold but wearable colors.


Benefit Cosmetics Philippines officially launched these new colourful additions to They’re Real! Franchise at Black Sheep in Bonifacio Global City. For mascaras, they added blue and brown shades, and more exciting palette of blue, purple, green and brown for eyeliner.

See anyone familiar? Yes, that’s Me. I am truly honored and grateful to be one of Benefit Cosmetics PH’s Theyre Real GLAMbassadors.


Here we are posing beside our portraits which were photographed by the talented Samantha Valenciano. Each of us wore an assortment of FreshLook contact lenses to complement the different hues of eyeliners and mascaras.

Benefit is known for rowing fun, exciting and unique events. This time, they collaborated with Mystery Manila where guests had to solve crossword puzzles, Algebra equations, and search secret passwords to win limited edition Benefit goodies. Our brains totally had a workout. Haha
