Posts From October 2011
On October 21st Lancome will be celebrating Gene’s Day. This is a one-day national fundraising event to support St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
Last year, Lancome raised $300,000 to support life-saving research and treatment led by St. Jude and they hope to double that donation this year during Gene’s Day.
During Genes Day $7 of every purchase of Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate will be donated to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital which is one of the world’s premier centers for research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other childhood diseases. If you’d like to try it before purchasing head to www.lancome-usa.com to get your free invitation for a 7 day supply of Génifique that you can pick up at your local Lancome counter. All orders placed on Lancome’s website from 9/29 through 10/14 will include a sample.
I hope you’ll join in and purchase a bottle of Génifique on October 21 as you’ll not only look better on the outside but you’ll feel better on the inside knowing that you helped support St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Happy Genes Day!

Givenchy takes things to a new and exciting level with Phenomen’Eyes Mascara for the holidays. Picture it, Gold Sparkles Phenomen’Eyes Mascara!
Dare you to say that gold sparkles doesn’t evoke excitement and possibly foaming at the mouth.
The mascara now is available in a twinkling gold shade, designed to give lashes a sparkling finish for the holidays!
It’s available now, for a limited time at Sephora and Sephora.com
Don’t overlook the power of Lorac Eyeshadows dood. They make some seriously nice potted shadows and their new Shimmer & Shine Set contains three!
This seven piece collection features 99% full size products, score! Who doesn’t love sets that pack in the full size items right?
- Lorac Eye Shadow in Serenity (shimmering light bronze), Shimmer (shimmering white), Dark Brown (matte dark brown)
- Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer (this one be mini peeps)
- Lorac Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss in Polished (light opalescent pink)
- Lorac Visual Effects in Jet Black
- Black Microfiber Makeup Bag
The set is $37 and available now at Sephora and Sephora.com
P.S. I normally toss makeup bags into a bin (it’s get a little out of control in there) but this bag actually looks like it has potential!
Wanna a little itty peek at what Clinique’s Fall Collection, Black Honey is about but not wanting to indulge in full size products?
Clinique Black Honey Glow is a four piece set for eyes, lips, and cheeks inspired by Clinique’s very popular Black Honey shade.
This collection includes:
- Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black
- Clinique Black Honey Gel Blush
- Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Black Honey
- Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo in Lucky Penny, Rose Chocolate
The set is $28.50 and available exclusively at Sephora and Sephora.com
Just a warning, the Black Honey Gel Blush is an ickle disappointing as it has a poor color pay off but the set is actually a nice way to indulge in some Black Honey pieces without diving into the full color collection and spending more $$$!
So you like lipgloss but you don’t like having to pay $20 or more for a single gloss from your favorite brands?
That’s why the Holidays are a great time to indulge as brands package up glosses in an array of various sets that house smaller, minis sizes (or if you’re lucky larger, full sizes) for half the price. Mini isn’t always better in my personal opinion as I tend to run through them fairly quickly but you are getting variety here and that’s always important. Plus unlike powder products I find that Lipgloss Sets tend to stay true to their formula, ie, the formula isn’t cheapened or reformulated to fit the smaller price tag.
Here’s a few of my recommendations and picks to add to your Sephora Friends and Family order because 20% off plus the already low price tag of the set really makes things all the sweeter!
