Luxe Advent CalendarMonday, November 19, 2012
I already gave you a little preview of the Luxe Advent Calendar in my last post, but here's a better look.
The Luxe Advent Calendar is a beauty lover's take on the traditional chocolate advent calendar. Instead of chocolate goodies, each door opens to a new beauty surprise.
The packaging is really cute! It came beautifully wrapped in festive paper with a lovely note. It was like unwrapping a present, a rather large present.
The little doors are easy to open and reveal a new product every day (if you have the patience to wait to open it, of course).
I, however, was not that patient and tore it open immediately. So, spoiler alert!
I'm not going to share all the products with you, juts a few here and there. The packaging of these samples are really cute!
Skincare items -- I love trying out new skin products (from left to right):
- Lancôme Généfique Youth Activating Concentrate
- Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator Eye Serum
- shu uemura phyto-black lift concentrate
- shu uemura phyto-black lift radiance boosting lotion
- Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector
Some fragrances. Love the bottles. There were some scents that weren't for me though, particularly the Opiums (from left to right):
- Lancôme Trésor Eau de Parfum Spray
- Yves Saint Laurent Belle D’Opium Eau de Parfum
- Giorgio Armani Attitude, Eau de Toilette
- Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Eau de Parfum
- Yves Saint Laurent Opium Eau de Toilette Spray
There were two liptsticks. One was a mini tube of YSL Rouge Pur Couture in No. 1, it's a gorgeous red!
The other is a Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge, I'm not sure on the colour, but it's a pretty pinky mauve with a bit of a lustre. This one is a pretty big tube.. may even be a full-size, or very very close to it.
Mascaras galore (from left to right):
- YSL Effet Faux Cils Shocking
- Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara
- Lancôme Hypnose Doll Lashes
This is the one product I was disappointed in. It's the Giorgio Armani Eau de Jade, and it came in this little box, but the fragrance atomizer was the garden variety one you could get at any fragrance counter. Nonetheless, it's 23 gems over one dud.
So there's a little peek inside, there's 8 more great samples hidden in there that I know you'd love!
Now on to the giveaway (which I would just like to say is not sponsored at all by Loose Button and / or affiliates)...
