Vice Ganda and his fans broke the world record for the largest gathering of people applying lipstick at the same time. 

A total of 6,900 people were officially recognized to have taken part in the attempt at Araneta Coliseum Saturday night.

The number beat the previous record, held by an international cosmetics company, by more than 1,000. The old mark was set in China in 2015, gathering 5,840 people. 

"Sa lahat sa inyo — girl, boy, bakla, tomboy — na naki-participate, give yourselves a big round of applause," Vice Ganda told the massive crowd, just before the new record was made official. 

A Guinness Book of World Records official said the group had to disqualify 108 people from the attempt, though it mattered little. 

Vice Ganda first announced his plans to break the record last month, as part of a campaign to promote his Vice Cosmetics brand. 

He arranged a music festival, inviting the likes of Darren Espanto, Moira dela Torre, and Yeng Constantino to perform. 

Entrance is free, although one had to present a bought lipstick from his brand to avail of a ticket.
