Ooh la la Lancome

If you know me, you know I’m not a big makeup person. I’m more of a lazy natural person (ahem). But I do wear makeup occasionally, and every now and then I realize that despite never really using anything up, certain products do get old and gross and need to be chucked and replaced.

Enter my attentive stalking of makeup deals at places like Macy’s—I wait until they run something on sale with a bonus and then I score big. Like today, they have this Lancome Auda[city] in Paris Eye Shadow Palette marked down to $29 (they claim it’s a $346 value but c’mon; the regular price, though, is $69) with free shipping. Better still, spend $35+ on any Lancome products and you can nab this 7-piece bonus set for free (up to a $124 value).

You have no idea how thrilled I am just to find an eye shadow palette in normal colors (hello, makeup manufacturers! some of us of a “certain age” do not want glitter or electric blue, please and thanks), and I just love these bonus deals, too. It makes throwing out my old makeup so much easier to bear.

    When they say “a $346 value”, they mean if you bought each of the shadows as individuals. Granted, you get more shadow when you do the solo, but you get a lot more packaging, and as you say, most of us don’t finish an eyeshadow before we should stop putting it near our eyes 🙂

    The older I get, the more glitter I need in my life. Bring on the sparkles!

    I’m a pro makeup artist and that’s a GREAT price on that eyeshadow palette. The only thing I’d recommend is buying a cheap eye primer to use under the shadows since they don’t have a lot of creaminess or ‘stick’ to them.
