I was reading this article over on Viva Woman about the shocking prices of Benefit Cosmetics that launched recently in Singapore. I found myself nodding sadly in agreement at the shocking prices at our counters.
Unfortunately, I must add that Benefit sold here in Kuala Lumpur (Parkson Grand KLCC, Metrojaya Midvalley Megamall) too carries an inflated price tag. The face blush/powders e.g. Dandelion and Georgia costs RM129 (US$37.92) at our counters but only US$26 in the USA and online. The silky finish lipsticks my friend raves over costs RM68 (US$19.55) here and US$16 online.
Is it any wonder we have to turn to online shopping? Benefit now offers free international shipping with purchases US$85 and above. So, grab a few friends and combine your orders to save on shipping and on the price per item. With the big differences in prices online and in store, the wait will be worth it, eh? 🙂
