12 Days of Christmas Beauty Giveaways

Day 1: Lancome Collector “24 Beauty Wishes by Lancome” Advent Calendar

I’m kicking off my 12 Days of Christmas Beauty Giveaways with this special Lancome collector Advent Calendar. It’s one of my all-time favourites because it offers a great mix of colour makeup and skincare. But don’t race to use it leading up to Christmas. My advice is to hold off until the new year when you need something to brighten the cold, dark days of winter. Discovering a new beauty treat each day in January can be a fun way to start 2020.

This carefully-edited collection of some of Lancome’s most popular products and colours is sure to delight any beauty enthusiasts. You’ll find a trio of L’Absolue lipsticks, five L’Absolue lacquers, La Vie Est Belle fragrance mini and body lotion, Hypnose mascara and the award-winning Bifacil makeup remover among others. I’ve been to the labs just outside of Paris where many of the these products are developed and I can tell you that the chemists and scientists are truly passionate about these products. You can see the love and care they put into each formula.

    My ex husband went to great lengths to obtain a Clark Gable biography book for me, it was out of print and before the internet was so huge, so he had one specially printed for me, which was a months long process. Will never forget it, ever. I just love the old Hollywood so this book was very precious to me, especially since he has since passed away and we had remained great friends.

    My aunt gave me a little vase that was my grandmothers. We used to pick wild violets, place them in the vase, and give them to my grandma.

    I remember as a child everyone in school had the white and red phat farms.. They were so in, and I couldn’t afford them. For Christmas my mom got me them and I remember how happy I was, it was very thoughtful of my mom to know how much I had been wishing for them.
