Rustan’s The Beauty Source ushered in the fourth consecutive year of “Beauty Addict” last week in Rustan’s Makati.
Bringing all of Rustan’s The Beauty Source’s brands to the forefront, guests were given the chance to participate in games, activities and workshops from the likes of our favorite beauty brands such as Chanel, Clarins, La Prairie, Estee Lauder, MAC Cosmetics, NARS, Deborah Lippman, Acca Kappa, Diptyque and Nuxe.
Well-loved labels celebrating milestones this year also had designated counters at the event. Among them were year-old Korean brand Areum, 20-year-old makeup label Laura Mercier, nail care colossus OPI, and French favorite L’Occitane, which are marking their 35th and 40th anniversaries.
Newcomers to the Rustan’s roster such as the algae-anchored Algenist, the all-organic Neal’s Yard Remedies, and perfumer Maison Francis Kurkdjian were also represented.
In keeping with “Beauty Addict” tradition, Rustan’s carried on last year’s setup of a charity photo booth. For every photo taken and uploaded online with the hashtag #RustansBeautyAddictGivesBack, Rustan’s matched it with a donation to the chosen charity, ICanServe Foundation, an organization that helps women with breast cancer in the Philippines.
Customers may avail of “Beauty Addict” membership with any single receipt purchase of P2,500 and above at the Rustan’s Cosmetics, Fragrances and Toiletries Division.
