Lancome Holiday Goodies

Lancome has announced their Holiday Collection. It is filled with lovely pallettes and fun gift ideas as well as a few super luxury items and some luxuriuous but affordable items. So something for everyone.

Last year I was given one of the Swarovski Color Design eyeshadow palettes as a gift and I used it all winter. I loved the padded leather like case, and this year a simliar one is available with a quilted ,padded case. In two color combos: Diamond Studs and Topaz Kisses, each is 45.00. The case has a neat clasp and looks like a regular clutch .

The most fun piece : A big crystal " Diamond" holding a sparkling sheer gloss. Called " The Precious Carat" it sells for 40.00. All the ladies should have one of these don't you think?

A Juicy Tubes set is also out again, featuring both jelly and smoothie ones,( 37.50) as well as 2 new e/s quads( 40.00), and Potion of Love lip stain in Ruby Kiss.( 18.50)

Lancome has also pulled out all the stops on massive luxury pieces: A Goyard train case filled with Gucci Westmans top makeup pieces

"Lancôme has teamed up with Goyard, the prestige luggage-maker, to create an exquisite, hand-crafted makeup case. The creation of this makeup kit is the result of a collaboration between Goyard and Gucci Westman, celebrity makeup artist and Lancôme’s Artistic Director. The result is a custom train case with multiple removable compartments, a mirror and a white makeup bag in Goyard’s signature canvas print. The chic case is filled with 36 of Gucci’s makeup essentials and is available exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman. Suggested Retail Price: $18,000 and a limited number will be available by special order."

Now that is what I want on my wishlist . Wow.

Second is the uber luxe category is :

"Temple St. Clair -
Twenty precious amulet necklaces, designed exclusively for Lancôme by Temple St. Clair, are available to razzle dazzle any one this season. 18K yellow gold rose motif cradles an exquisite egg shaped drop crystal orb studded with 32 diamonds, suspended from an 18k yellow gold chain. Arrives in a plush leather box with key for safekeeping. Completely dazzling with Mille et une Roses Eau de Parfum tucked inside for a gorgeous bouquet of the finest roses in the world and the warmth of amber, musk and vanilla. Available exclusively at the New York and Short Hills Lancôme Boutiques. Suggested Retail Price: $3,950.00"

I adore Mille et une Roses ,so if the train case doesn't pan out , this will do nicely. ( Just Kidding btw, these are so not ending up at my house unless I win one or something, but a gal can dream).
Lastly we have more affordable luxury, and every bit as lovely ideas:
