Macy’s Lancome “Free” Gift Deal


While there are a lot of benefits from shopping at places like Sephora and Ulta (earning points, trying out multiple brands in a single place, staff that’s not committed to trying to sell you a particular brand), one of the nice things about going to department stores instead are the occasional free gifts a brand will offer when you spend a certain amount of money. Right now Lancome is having a deal where you receive a 7-piece gift with a $35 purchase. Not bad at all.

Here’s what you get:

Most of these items will be sample-sized, but that’s more than enough to get good use out of them (and to figure out if you might like to purchase this product in the future). Not familiar with the Lancome brand? I can highly recommend:

  • The Blush Subtil Delicate Oil-Free Powder Blush. It applies beautifully and it Blushcomes in a lot of great colors. My favorite is the Miel Glace, which is a really natural, peachier blush that looks great on many skin tones.
  • The Photogenic Lumessence Light-Mastering & Line-Smoothing Makeup SPF 15. Actually, I used an earlier version of this foundation for years (it has a less complicated name then), and it was perfect–great coverage, smooth application, and it photographed very well (I used it the day of my wedding). A really nice option for people who want a little more coverage than what a BB cream or tinted moisturizer might offer.
  • Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover. By far the best makeup remover I’ve ever used. It feels like water but it removes all makeup effortlessly. Worth the big bucks.
  • Any of their mascaras. Lancome’s mascaras are a really “wet” formula which makes them easy to apply–the makeup glides on, no clumping, no flaking later in the day.


When you checkout, if you’ve spent the requisite $35, you’ll be asked to pick the samples you want. Easy as that. Deal ends when supplies run out. Anyone out there a die-hard Lancome fan?

    I’ve not used this brand before but I’ve been intrigued by the visionnaire product. I am always looking for a great mascara so I think I will make that purchase and try the visionnaire for free. Thanks

        In addendum, Estee Lauder has the same promotion going on. It is active at Dillards currently, but Macy’s will take pre-orders for their promotion which starts officially september 2nd. I took advantage of the lancome promo for myself but placed 2 separate orders at the Estee counter for mom and mother in law! I love early christmas shopping!
