Lancome Gift With Purchase
Last week I bought some makeup products at Sears' Lancome counter just so I could get this awesome gift with purchase. I don't usually use Lancome, I'm more of a MAC girl but how could I pass this up? Who doesn't love promotions? Who doesn't love spending $34.00 on makeup and/or skincare that you may or may not need and getting $167 worth of free products back? I freakin' ENJOY these freebies! Here's what my gift contained:
- Nutrix Royal Body Intense Lipid Repair Cream 60g
-High Resolution Refill-3X Triple Action Renewal Anti-Wrinkle Cream w/ SPF 15 Sunscreen 15g
-High Resolution Intense Collagen Anti-Wrinkle Serum 15 ml
-Color Design Cream Lipstick in 'Love It!'
-Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Mascara in 'Excessive Black'
-Color Design Ombre Effect Eye Shadow Quad
-Black Makeup Bag
-Black Companion Makeup Bag
You can choose 6 different products, two of them have to be skincare products. The items I didn't choose were a Juicy Tube Lipgloss, a bottle of Eye Makeup Remover and the skincare products for women over forty because, well I'm not forty just yet ; )
Here's what all 4 colors look like on my eyes.
So I haven't used any of the skincare yet because I'm trying to use up my other (very) expensive facial products first. Can you blame me when I spend over $200 on anti-aging products? : o I love the colors of the lipstick and eye shadows. The eye shadows are easy to apply and last throughout the day. I should note here that the colors of the eye shadows may vary from store to store. As for the mascara: I've been a fan of Lancome's mascaras for a long time, they're amazing, but they're just really expensive for me to buy on a regular basis so I tend to buy drugstore brands instead. And the cute mama and baby makeup bags - how adorable are they? All in all, this gift with purchase is totally worth the $34.00 you have to spend to receive it. I'll use everything in the pack which isn't always the case with other gifts w/ purchases I've received because sometimes the colors of makeup products they offer don't look good on me; sometimes I feel the make-up brands put together a clustermuck of products they're trying to get rid of. Not this time. I am in love with quality of the make-up products and you can tell the skincare is expensive so it MUST work right??? Ha, I'll let you know! I'll be buying Lancome in the future for sure.
What are your favorite Lancome products? And are you going to be shopping at Sears this week? ; )
