Lancome Advent Calender! Lancome Christmas Crackers!

By Aisling | October 25 2012 | 12 Comments

SUPER SHRIEK! The Lancome Advent Calender is here – and I have my paws on it.  It’s FABULOUS.  Twenty five days and twenty five mini Lancome treats.  This is so gorgeous and so sought after that every year it sells out – almost instantly.  This year’s calendar is no different in the amazeball stakes – the over excitable part of you that’s thinly hidden by a veneer of maturity will fall to pieces at the sight of it

Yes, there was NO WAY I could wait until December before I cracked this open! Are you mad – look at that MINI TRESOR! That mini Genifique! That baby Jucy Tube.


And now we’re on to the Christmas Beauty Crackers. Did I already do a super shriek?  Well now I’m doing another one!  Just IMAGINE these on your table at Christmas.  Instead of a plastic comb, a fish that curls up in your hand, a magnifying glass and some other pieces of plastic crap, you’ll get gorgeous Lancome sample sizes of products with every cracker pull.

And OF COURSE I also pulled a Christmas Cracker! Woohoo – a Lancome Bi-Facile! There’s a guy doing some painting in the house at the moment and I got him to pull it with me.  (This was followed by a very confusing exchange believe me). He actually got it – but generously gave it to me.  He was a bit. bemused by the whole thing til I excitedly explained “Mmmmm” he said speculatively “I think my wife might like these.  Actually I think my wife might love these”

 And you know what?  I think his wife will love them too.


Crackers exclusive to Brown Thomas (€60.00).  Lancôme advent calendar (€85)  available in select department stores

    Go away, Aisling.

    I’ve already decided to ask Santy for the Estee Lauder blockbuster this year, don’t be distracting/confusing me.

    Although your enthusiasm is infectious, I’m GRINNING at the Advent calendar.

    Ah the Blockbuster is ANOTHER thing I’ll be having a fit over!

    My mother bought me that calendar last year, ahead of an operation I was freaking out about, to take my mind off the countdown to the surgery. I won’t say it was nearly worth it, but…it was nearly worth it :L Though I got all those exact minis last year, bit disappointed they haven’t mixed it up a lil!

  • All that shrieking made my kitten look at me quite funny :)
    And I laughed at your description of the cracker-pulling with your painter, I can totally see myself doing that!

    I’ve been salivating at your pics on twitter all day!! ?

  • Aisling *Aisling* says:

    Oh the poor painter! He was like “what the…” Especially when he was the one who got the Bi Facile!

    Lurganista – I know, I’m sorry! My laptop died and I could only tweet the pics from my iPhone, that’s why I couldn’t put this post up til so late

    Bought the ciate advent calender yesterday so lucky I don’t really want this one too badly. Would be a great present though.
