Virtuosity Manila's flagship Lancôme Beauty Center welcomes the worldly woman.

Hot on the heels of L'Oreal label-mate Shu Uemura's store opening, Lancôme Paris follows suit with its own mega-boutique in posh Greenbelt 5. This will be its first store in Southeast Asia (and second in Asia, with an earlier debut in Hongkong).

Loyalists may still peruse the aisles for the classics—Juicy Tubes, anyone?—and will be pleasantly surprised by store-exclusive limited-edition lines like one from Aaron De May, Lancôme's international artistic director. Chief national make-up artist Gela Laurel-Stehmeier will also offer some localized expertise for beauty junkies at the store.


New and notable: Lancôme skin treatments, another pioneering service from the brand, will be available at the Beauty Center. Indulge in one (or five) of their expert skin services like the Youthful Radiance Treatment or the exciting Secret de Vie, and appease your S.O. while he waits by treating him to an Extreme Purity Treatment for Men.
