Holiday palettes are usually not my favorite because they are a) too bulky to be portable, or b) lower quality formulations than the main line products. This holiday, however, I really like the Lancome Limited Edition Beauty Box. Products are exact formulations and full size. I received a Macy’s gift card for my birthday that I’ve been saving for just the right thing. I immediately handed it over when I spotted the Lancome Beauty Box!

Lancome Beauty Box in Party Pinks

For $49.50 (with purchase) you get 11 full size products and a train case to hold the haul. It’s a $333 value! The Lancome Beauty Box comes in Party Pinks and Glamorous (golds and browns). Of course I went for the pinks 🙂 If you don’t already have pink in your beauty collection, this is all you need!

The Pretty Colors

  • (3) Color Design Lipsticks. Love It and The New Pink are gorgeous everyday colors, medium coverage and long lasting. Poodle Skirt is a bit bright, so I prefer it toned down with gloss.
  • (2) Juicy Tubes Lipglosses. Moulin Rose is a pretty light pink with some coverage (it has a rose scent which I don’t love). Miracle looks brighter in the tube but gives a sheer shimmer.
  • Blush Subtil Duo. Pink L’Amour powder blush and cream highlighter is very similar to my all-time favorite Mally Illuminating Blush. Mally’s is longer lasting, though this gives decent wear.
  • Color Design Eyeshadow Quad. Three neutral colors (Optic, Volcano, Drape) build shimmery depth and a bright violet (Drama) pops the corner or lines the eyes. I don’t like Drama on its own – it’s very bright (fits the name), but takes on a subtler color when mixed with the other shades.

Plus These Basics

  • Defincils Mascara. Your lashes won’t be mistaken for falsies but expect some length and definition without clumps
  • Crayon Kohl Eyeliner Pencil in Ebony
  • Blush and Eyeshadow Brushes. Not top quality, though the hairs are soft and work fine
  • Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover
  • Train Case
  • Application instruction card with a day and night look

The Lancome Beauty Box is available at department stores including Macy’s and Nordstrom, and the Lancome website.
