~ Lancome ~
This leading French beauty brand has been a long-time favorite of mine that I also remember being a fav brand of my mother's as well. They remind me of timeless, classic beauty that focuses on curating top-notch quality products that will give you real results too! The company is actually a subsidiary of L'Oreal since 1964 and it was founded in the 1930's as a fragrance house in France. The area's local rose species provided the inspiration for the company's logo.
When Lancome became part of L'Oreal in the 60's, it was expanded to include makeup, skincare, and cosmetic products in it's luxury division. I really started becoming a big fan of Lancome once I tried one of their very popular mascaras and their eye makeup remover. At this point, I've purchased several of their skincare and beauty products- make sure to check out below the most recent Lancome set that I snagged at HSN:
O d'AZUR spray
[with Lip Gloss and Bronzing Brush]
*get this awesome set for this price at hsn.com!
What You Get
- 2.5 fl. oz. O d'AZUR Eau de Toilette Spray [ind. priced @ $65]
- .105 oz. Star Bronzer Bronzing Brush - Eclat Cuivre [ind. priced @ $18]
- .33 fl. oz. Juicy Tubes Ultra Shiny Lip Gloss - Tickled Pink (mauve pinky nude) [ind. priced @ $35]
If you were to purchase all 3 of these items individually, you'd be spending $118- that makes this kit an awesome value with a saving of $58 :0 I really HSN for this reason and usually scope out their beauty kits and special deals, particularly around the holidays when there tends to be quite a few good all-around kits available.
HSN also has quite a bit of beauty and skincare products that have their flex-pay option which allows for payments to be spread out in different increment amounts. This means you can snag a great deal and alleviate an immediate hit on your pocket too :) It's really hard to pick a favorite item between all 3 of these, they are all honestly great picks- yet I have stumbled upon a new fragrance that I really LOVE.
I've never tried this specific scent from Lancome and I felt that there was a chance I wouldn't necessarily like it as I tend to be picky with fragrances in general. I often find them either too strong or just unpleasant; it turns out though that I ended up really liking this scent. With hints of Rose, Peony, Sicilian bergamot, calabria lemon essence, and woody with musk notes too. The bottle is gorgeous as well, with an etched rose design in the glass and has a clear cap as well.
You can leave this bottle laying about due to its craftsmanship and beauty. As for the bronzer, it's an easy-to-use product that has a uniquely designed brush that will dispense the product by pushing the opposite end's button. I only had to press 2-4 times to get the desired amount of bronzer inside the brush, which also does an excellent job of applying and buffing the bronzer.
There's even a light and pleasant scent to the product as an added bonus and the pretty sparkle left behind is just the right- you won't look overdone or orange with this bronzer from Lancome at all :) That's hard to accomplish in my book- I have super fair skin and most bronzers don't end up looking as nicely as this one turned out.
Lastly but not least by any means, the Juicy Tubes Ulta Shiny Lip gloss is a great gloss for any occasion and the "Tickled Pink" color of this particular gloss is a great pick that will work for almost any skin tone. There's a great fruity watermelon flavoring to the product with high-shine gloss that makes it one of the best lip glosses out on the market. It's bit higher-priced than most, but I considered it to be a bonus since you save almost $60 on these 3 items as a set.
