Beauty Counters Are My Happy Place

If you read the About Me page, you already know that beauty counters get me all excited. Some girls can shop for clothes all day and get a rush from trying on several outfits. Snooze. I get my giddies (is that a word?) from trying on several shades of lipstick. What can I say? The beauty department is really my happy place.

It's like Disneyland...for beauty addicts!

The gates of heaven…for beauty addicts!

Rustan’s The Beauty Source recently got a facelift and it’s sooo pretty! They had a ginormous launch last night and I ended up staying longer than I initially planned—too much fun seeing old friends and exploring all the little activities each beauty counter had! Want to check out what happened? Let’s do some Instagram stalking and spy on the highlights reel of the other party peeps via the hashtag #rustansbeautyaddict.(Clue: There’s kissing involved—hey, it’s for a good cause!)


There was on-the-spot calligraphy at Ralph Lauren, yummy ice cream was served at L’Occitane, the pick-a-prize station at La Prairie was a big hit, Arlene Sipat painted watercolor prints with Chanel makeup and polish—such a fab night for beauty!

Rustan's The Beauty Source Event

Gorgeous models, actresses, beauty insiders and pros were all in attendance! But everyone’s fave stop was The Kiss of Goodwill exhibit. For every beso received, Rustan’s pledged a donation of P100 to the Philippine Red Cross for Typhoon Yolanda victims. Yay, more beauty for a cause!

But the real highlight of my night: seeing Iya of Women’s Health whip out her alcohol spray to disinfect the glass sheet where we were supposed to leave our smooch marks! So funny! Uhh…hello, fellow germ-freak :p

I so wanted in on that alcohol-spraying action.

Left my kisses for a cause.

Will definitely be dropping by Rustan’s, so I can explore their new counters even more—the lighting is just divine! Congrats to the Rustan’s group! ♥
