Macy’s has a pretty sweet Lancôme gift with purchase when you spend $35 on any Lancôme products. Annnnnd I went a little nuts! I know I mentioned in a previous post that I could care less about makeup bags because I have WAY too many laying around. But I never said anything about tote bags! Needless to say the tote bags are what did it for me. I can so use these at the lake this Summer. The choices are a blue tote with a coral flower or a coral tote with a coral flower. I’d say they’re very similar to those reusable shopping bags, but maybe not as durable. I do think they’d be perfect for the beach or lake though.

You also get a Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover, your choice of serum (Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate or Vissionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector), your choice of eye cream (Génifique Eye Youth Activating Eye Concentrate or High Résolution Eye Refill-3x Triple Action Renewal Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream), your choice of palette (Smoky or Bronze), and your choice of mascara (Définicils High Definition Mascara or Hypnôse Drama Full Body Volume Mascara).

I placed 2 orders so that I could get both bags and both palettes. Yes, I’m a cheater, but there were quite a few items I wanted to get so I just broke it down a bit. You can see swatches for both of the palettes that came with the GWP above. I really do love the Bronze palette. The Smoky palette was rather sheer and needed to be built up a bit to even show up in the photo. The Bronze palette on the other hand was much more pigmented and had better texture. It’s also more Summer friendly with the beautiful bronze shades.

I plan on breaking the haul up into parts so that there won’t be one huge photo heavy post. So be on the lookout for swatches of the lipglosses, lipsticks, nail polishes, and Emerald Decadence palette.

This is definitely one of the better GWP. I’m not usually drawn to them, but like I said… the tote bags were super cute!

I was pretty excited about the MAC Temperature Rising Collection. Everything looked so sparkly and pretty! I know I said I don’t care for shimmer/sparkle, but something about these sparkly beauties really stood out. The bronze packaging is also really pretty and screams SUMMER! Below you can see some swatches of me wearing Ripe for Love blush and Caliente lipstick. I absolutely LOVE both! I don’t own many peach blushes so this was a must have for my collection. Both blushes really packed on some color so I had to use a rather light hand when applying them. They lasted pretty much all day, but started to get patchy around 8 or so hours. Caliente lipstick is absolutely adorable! The sparkle can be a bit much, but I do appreciate it. It did fade after about 2-3 hours so I had to reapply quite often throughout the day. I also really liked the texture. You can see it in action in the photo below.

I didn’t get any of the other lipsticks or lipglasses because I already own similar shades. I do however regret not getting the Bare My Soul Quad. Which is now sold out. Doh!

Lancome mini haul

Lancôme Vernis In Love in Rose Pitimini

Last week Lancôme had a pretty sweet Gift With Purchase deal. Shown above you can see my mini haul including my 2 purchases and GWP. The GWP are the blush in Shimmer Mocha Havana and the Color Design Lipstick in Wannabe. I also got a blush brush, Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector, High Résolution Refill-3X™ Triple Action Renewal Anti-Wrinkle Cream SPF 15, Hypnôse Drama Mascara in Black, and a super pretty iPad case. I even got a 10% off coupon for my next purchase. Pretty nifty, huh?

The nail polish is a really pretty rose pink. It applied nicely with hardly no streaking. However, it started chipping on just the 2nd day. It’s mostly just the tips so that’s not too bad, but I was expecting a lot longer wear time. The blush is a shimmery bronze pink which is just gorgeous! This lasted a good 8+ hours. I also really LOVE the Hypnôse Drama Mascara.

If you’re bummed that you missed out, Macy’s is having a similar deal starting May 7th. Only you get a super cute tote bag along with about 6 samples when you spend a certain amount of money on any Lancôme products. If I’m not mistaken I think it’s about $65. I lost the flier otherwise I would double check.
