Lancome's Limited-Edition Holiday Beauty Box

Each holiday season, Lancome offers a Beauty Box, an incredible value collection of makeup and skin care products. This year the box is $52 with any $36 Lancome purchase. It's advertised as a $330 value.

For the last few years, I have purchased these limited-edition sets, and I have found them to be beautifully "edited." Last year's box, an oval, deep red, faux reptile, zippered box with a handle, serves me today as storage for makeup brushes. These boxes are so much nicer than see-through plastic from Target - or shoe boxes!

Included this year?
  • Creme Radiance - clarifying cream-to-foam cleanser
  • Renergie Microlift R.A.R.E. - lifting cream with SPF 15
  • Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover - full-sized
  • Cils Booster XL - super-enhancing mascara base
  • Hypnose Custom Volume Mascara in Black - full-sized
  • Color Palette - nine eye shadow shades and two best-selling Blush Subtil shades
  • Color Design Sensational Effects Lip Colors - in All Done Up and Trendy Mauve
  • Color Fever Lasting Radiance Sensual Lipcolor - in Prune Drama Girl
  • Juicy Tubes Lip Glosses - in Magic Spell and Simmer
If the lipsticks and Juicy Tubes aren't full-sized, the are really close to it!

Just enter code BEAUTY09 at checkout at The department stores have these boxes too. While and Bloomingdale's offer the box in black, I saw the box in white at Macy's. I like the black one best. The contents are the same.

Update 11/24: Lancome is having a Friends & Family sale online. Just enter code HOLIDAYJOY2 at checkout to receive a 20% discount and free shipping through November 30.
