Blogging Day 217: Lancome's Free Gift W/Purchase

Lancome is currently having a gift with purchase event @ Nordstorms and per it is going on until April 3rd. You have to spend $39.50 and you get to choose 6 sample beauty products, a make-up brush and a bag. As I have said before, I am a sucker for gift with purchases.


Out of all the choices, I choose the eyeshadow pallet, lipstick, concealer ( I <3 their concealer) , Genifique-a youth activating concentrate, Renergie, and High Resolution- Refill-3x.

I have no idea about the moisturizers, but I asked what they would recommend for me and they said these would be good for me. I have yet to find a good skin care system, so I'm cool with trying anything.

Lancome's concealer is what I use everyday, so that was a simple pick. Best concealer as of yet, any others you would recommend?

The make-up brush, well, a girl can never have too many make-up brushes. I actually am starting to have quite a collection myself.

Now onto the eyeshadow and lipstick.
Here are the swatches.

The lipstick color is 'Wannabe'(all the way to the right). I love the color. It is the perfect shade for my lips.

M.A.C and Lancome lipsticks are my favorite. I do not own any other brands. I own tons and tons of lip glosses.I have never been a lipstick girl, but the few I have, are M.A.C. and Lancomes.

Next are the eyeshadows, going from right to left int he picture: Camisole(shimmer), Kitten Heel(shimmer), Lezard(matte) and the very faint, but there, Honeymoon(sheen).

I love these colors, they are absolutely beautiful and they look amazing with my hazel eyes.

Now, in order to get such goodies, I decided to try their foundation. Specifically, their 'Teint Idole' which I am I converting too.

 Normally I use Covergirl, and I have for years, but not any more. The coverage is amazing and lasts all day long, even after a full day at work. As work day, I mean stressful, analizing bids and rubbing my face all day job.

Now, I don't know if you guys have noticed these little barcode boxes that have been appearing on our products lately.

I have seen them on things ranging from crackers to movie posters in People magazine. This is reason number 5643 that I need a smart phone, I want to know what these little boxes lead too.

 If you have no clue what I'm talking about, I mean the application that smart phones have. I believe is uses the camera function and scans the little box and brings up the video it is linked too. TOO COOL!

I am so technology impressed :)
