Long To Belong

Lancôme urges you to join the club.
Long To Belong Lancôme urges you to join the club.
Lancôme Paris answers the call of anyone who's ever had designs of being elite—MyLancôme, the Parisian beauty club of the famous luxury brand, is now available locally for those who want to partake in the exclusivity.

How it works: a minimum single-receipt purchase of P8,000 at their Greenbelt 5 boutique automatically gives you an application form and membership card, which is then valid for a year (cycle starts from April 1st, 2009 to March 31, 2010). The mechanics involve earning Rose Reward Points for every P50 spent at the Greenbelt 5 boutique, which become redeemable in beauty products at the end of each cycle year. Birthday girls also get two Roses for every P50 purchase for their whole birthday month, and successful referrals earn 50 Roses for the referrer for each new member.

Additional membership perks include two complimentary makeover sessions from Lancôme Colour Experts, exclusive workshops, events and sales, and supplementary Rose Rewards Points from availing of their brand-new—and super fabulous—Lancôme Weddings packages.

Ed's tip: Even if you're not into exchanging points for products, it still is prudent to take advantage of your “earnings” for gift-giving opportunities; those 800 credits that you nonchalantly earn while purchasing your monthly supply of skincare products still equal a brand new bottle of Miracle Eau de Parfum to give Mom on Mother's Day. Save all the points you earn and redeem them during the holidays, and your Christmas list might just get cut in half, saving you tons of cash as well.

Get a move on with earning those points by keeping eyes peeled for their latest seasonal offering, the Brazil-inspired Tropiques Muse Summer 2009 Make-Up Collection. Worth checking out is the brand's first-ever mineral bronzer, Tropiques Minérale, made of pure ochres said to mimic the exact shade of a tan, and comes in two formulations (loose and pressed powder). The new Juicy Tubes P.U.R.E. (Premium Unique Raw Elements), a timely, eco-friendly revamp on an old fave by the introduction of 100% natural origin fragrance, has natural ingredients and recyclable packaging. The Kabuki and long-bristled brushes also make a star appearance in the collection and fortify anyone's tool arsenal.
