Now on its fourth an­nual year, Rus­tan’s Beauty Ad­dict Event en­ti­tled “So Sur­real,” spon­sored by Moët and Chan­don and Metrobank Femme Card, was held last Sept. 15 in cel­e­bra­tion of skin­care and cos­met­ics, with var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties set up in ev­ery cor­ner of Rus­tan’s Makati. With mu­sic blast­ing from the DJ’s booth, makeovers at the MAC sta­tion, hand mas­sages at the Her­mès booth, and pho­to­shoots at the Chanel cor­ner hap­pened si­mul­ta­ne­ously.

With a DJ booth and party canapes from Bizu, beauty ad­dicts cel­e­brated a night of beauty with their fa­vorite brands. Games at the La Prairie, Sis­ley, Creed, Stila, Jane Iredale, and Nars booths of­fered par­tic­i­pants an op­por­tu­nity to know more about these iconic brands as they en­joy a prod­uct sam­ple or two to try. Re­fresh­ments and snacks were pro­vided by L’Oc­c­i­tane and Neil’s Yard Reme­dies. The amuse­ment, which started at 5 p.m., lasted un­til 10 p.m., with the par­tic­i­pants’ bags full.

The much-an­tic­i­pated event is the big­gest beauty event of the year, where cer­ti­fied Beauty Ad­dicts got an exclusive in­vite to, a pri­or­ity slot in the guest list, plus a bag and a map to get them through all the ac­tiv­i­ties. For those who’ve yet to ap­ply for mem­ber­ship, any sin­gle-re­ceipt pur­chase worth P2,500 qual­i­fies one to get the card, open­ing up a world of beauty exclusives from Rus­tan’s The Beauty Source.
