Lancome is currently in Gift at Macy’s. I learned what the phrase “In Gift” meant at an early age. My mom took me to the Clinique counter when I was 14-years-old, and let the lady in the white Clinique coat teach me all about eye liner, lipstick and concealer. They just happened to be in gift when I went, and I was delighted to not only get what my mother had planned on getting for me, but also some other fun skin care items and make up all in a cute cosmetic bag.
I try to make sure and save my Lancome purchases for when they are in gift. I admit it, I’m a Lancome devotee. All my skin care is Lancome. My favorite new lipsticks are by Lancome, and my Lancome Lady and I are on a first name basis. Cynthia (my Lancome lady) told me about the upcoming gift with purchase when I stopped in for more of the Cleansing Water I’m in love with. She set up a pre-sale for me. I paid for my items in advance, and she held them for me at the counter until the first day they were officially giving the gift with purchase. Then, all I had to do was pick up my already paid for items and gift at the Lancome counter.
Here’s what’s in it:
What I love about the Lancome Gifts now, is that they let you choose from several options. I went with small travel sizes of the Absolue face and eye cream, because it’s what I currently use. I chose the Body Cream instead of the Flash Bronzer, and the lipstick instead of the Juicy Tubes. I also decided on the eyeshadow quad because it’s not normally the sort of colors I would pick out for myself. I’m trying to stretch my comfort zone and not be afraid of blues and pinks. I’m really pleased I did, because the colors are so pretty. I got many compliments on them today.
You might be wondering what I plunked my hard-earned money down on to get the gift? I got another Rouge in Love lipstick, this time in Rouge Valentine. It’s a beautiful red with pretty blue undertones. It’s very much a 1940’s red. I love it. I also picked up their oil based eye makeup remover. I just started using it again because I just started wearing so much more eye makeup.
Yes, I’m a Lancome sucker. I’m sure my Lancome Lady Cynthia gets a huge smile on her face every time she sees me walk through the doors of my local Macy’s. I love you Cynthia! I’m not sure my pocketbook does, but I sure do!
P.S. I had one of everything they were giving away in the gift already except for the tote bag, body cream and the color quad. I had every lip color, every eye and face cream, and every eye essential. I suppose I need to lay off on the Lancome for a while. If that’s possible.
