AMW Reports: Rustan's The Beauty Source (Second Season)

Would you believe it is the 2nd year for me to attend Rustan's The Beauty Source?  It seems just like yesterday when I left my "kissmark" and this year....I'm celebrating with the city's most glamorous women!  I've seen Phoemela Barranda, Mika Lagdameo Martinez, Iya Vilania, Bubbles Paraiso, Ruffa Gutierrez, CJ Jaravata, Alyana Martinez, Maggie Wilson Consunji, Rissa Mananquil Trillo and Mariana Henud all gathered together at different counters of their favorite beauty brands like --- Chanel, Clarins, La Prairie, Sisley, Nars, Diptyque, Annick Goutal, Estee Lauder, Clinique, La Mer, Benefit, Bobbi Brown, Guerlain, Hermes, Murad, Perricone, Lancome, Mac, L’Occitane, and Acca Kappa, among others.

Of course, I may not be a star but I feel like one when I stook at this gorgeous Signed With Love freedom Wall!  In my own way, I was able to help as Rustan's pledged to ICanServe to donate Php300.00 on each signature signed using lipstick to help breast cancer survivors at the same time, promote early detection.

There are several activities on each counter all for the love of beauty!  I haven't gotten the chance to pass by each booth (due to time constraint) but I was able to enjoy the Yummy Chocolate Balls designed to look like the brand's iconic pearl-shaped eyeshadows at the Chanel Counter.

Nail Polish brands like OPI and Deborah Lippmann gave out free manicures and notepads which they painted with their favorite shade.

Hi Nicole of Beauty and Sparkle!

There were free makeovers with complementeray glam sessions from Benefit and Este Lauder and quick brow fixes at Bobbi Brown.
sorry for the blurry pic, I was too excited!
 And it was a wonderful surprise to see my good friends from Benefit Cosmetics.

Clarin’s literally combined beauty and brains with their All Time Must Haves Memory Game as I was challenged to match cards with images of Clarins products, in order to take home their coveted must-haves.  And yes, I won a skincare sample because my brain was working that night :P
