When my mother was a young lady she worked at her local Lancôme counter, in Nicaragua, as a shopgirl- she applied makeup, sold products and acquired quite the taste for their French perfume and high quality creams and products. Many moons later, as I grew up in California, we would often frequent retailers beauty counters to get refills on her empty jars and potions, and remember we always looked for a "gift with purchase". I cherished those moments spent with her shopping at "big girl stores" and feeling important enough to accompany the chicest woman I knew. As I got a little older she'd share her gifts with purchase with me, by the time I was in high school I acquired quite the collection of mini eyeshadows, Tresor samples, and mini mascaras.
To this day I have an affinity for the elegance and the luxury that is Lancôme. When they reached out to see if they could send over some samples, I was thrilled, and so excited to get my hands on their latest and greatest. They sent over the most stunning care package of serums, blushes, lipstick, nail polish and almost every shade of their Teint Idole Ultra Foundation stick! I am in heaven with that glittery box of goodness. I love everything they've sent over, but the two items in heavy rotation have been the serum and a the 'Le Magenta' bold fuschia lipcolor.
Are any of you as obsessed with Lancôme as I am? Do tell what your fave products from them are!
