Lancome Advent Calendar – Ding Dong.

Oh yes please. An advent calendar stuffed full of perfectly formed Lancome miniatures? This beats the chocolate-filled versions hands down! What’s not to like? I particularly need/want/like the La Vie Est Belle miniature; it makes me grit my teeth with longing. Why do I have this ridiculous obsession with tiny samples of things? I still have that gigantic box full of them on top of my shelves – it’s so heavy that it’s making the wood sag! I must do a giveaway very, very soon. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, if you want your very own Lancome advent calendar you will have to be quick off the marks on the first of October – these will be on the Lancome website and at flagship counters priced at £70. For that you get 24 luxury minis (not the cars) including beautiful foundation, age-defying skincare and some makeup heroes. Ding dong.

  1. Lovely!! But a bit tricky for me as well; since i’m very soon convinced that i need the product to have..

  2. Do you have any more information on that? I couldn´t find any on the Lancome page/the web :-(. The 2011 calendar was exclusive to Selfridges as far as I remember…..#want

  3. oooh this looks great! hmm, and this might just be the push I needed to bring a visit to London soon, ha ha! x

  4. I’d love one of those, only problem is I was one of those greedy kids who opened all the little doors before christmas… Temptation would almost certainly get the better of me with this!

  5. That is just the coolest idea ever! I love Advent calendars and am always sad that they’re no longer as popular as when I was growing up. But this is way better than the ones of my childhood and my kids’ childhoods! And as a chocoholic, that’s saying a lot! ;)

  6. I absolutely love the idea of a beauty advent calendar but I’m a bit concerned that the foundation/base products wouldn’t suit my skintone… :S

  7. Are these usually UK specific or do they make it over to the States? How many have come out over the years?

  8. No way? That is geeeenius, what an inspired idea! Terrified that Xmas talk’s already kicked of when my mind’s still coping with the fact we had such a stingy summer, but if it involves Lancome tartware to help me grapple with the notion, that’s not too bad a place to start : )

    I use their foundation, I actually blend two myself in a wee Lush pot so it matches throughout the year, as I tan in summer. That’s the only drawback I can see to this calendar, as we don’t come in a one size fits all category as customers. Unless they think to brand them in ‘Fair’ ‘Medium’ ‘Dark’ which is what I would do, to keep my customers happy and give them a chance of sampling products that actually suited.
    But I love the idea of the calendar : ) This is so cool! Can see other beauty brands being cheesed off they didn’t think of it first. Great spot, Ruth! xx

  9. Ugh, sure we won’t get this in Germany:( But good for my budget. I would later buy fullsize products (nasty me:) ).xxx Anna

  10. How unfair that it doesn’t appear to be available in the States! Grrrrrr!
