The Absolute Best Pre-Holiday Holiday Gift Ever

is launching October 15th on, and I can already tell you that it’s going to sell out in 1 day.

It’s the L’Oreal Luxe Advent Calendar. That’s right – an advent calendar filled with beauty goodies! And not just any beauty goodies – just high-end ones from L’Oreal Paris brands such as Giorgio Armani, Shu Uemura, Lancome, and YSL. It’s a gift so crazy and good that I haven’t even opened mine. I’m going to do the whole advent count-down thing starting December 1st.

Here’s what’s inside (and it’s GOOD)

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick
Lancôme Généfique Youth Activating Concentrate
Shu Uemura Fresh Pore Cleansing Oil
Yves Saint Laurent Opium Eau de Toilette Spray
Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lashes
Lancôme Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover
Shu Uemura Phyto-Black Lift Cocnentrate
Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara
Shu Uemura Phyto-Black Lift Radiance Boosting Lotion
Yves Saint Laurent Belle D’Opium Eau de Parfum
Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator Serum
Yves Saint Laurent Dessin du Regard Waterproof Eye Pencil
Giorgio Armani Multi-Corrective Rejuvanating Regenessence Cream
Lancôme Trésor Eau de Parfum
Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking
Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator Eye Serum
Giorgio Armani Youth Regenerator Regenessence Serum
Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge
Shu Uemura Gloss Unlimited
Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector
Giorgio Armani Fluid Master Primer
Giorgio Armani Attitude Eau de Toilette
Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gio Eau de Parfum
Giorgio Armani Eau de Jade

Not only is this a great way to get into the holiday spirit, but it’s an absolute fantastic way to try some high-end beauty products.

A few details – the advent calendar is $109, and the products contained are deluxe samples. Yes, you might be able to score them yourself if you visited the counters and spoke sweetly, but I know that in some cases they just aren’t ever available (think deluxe samples of the mascaras which are pretty much impossible to score). The calendar also includes a $10 gift card to spend at which is a members-only shopping site. They sell something called a Luxe Box which is a sampling box available every 3 months. The Luxe Box is filled with 7 or 8 trial sized beauty products.

The calendar is just one way that you can check out the Luxe Box experience but without getting the box.

    Hi, I got one! hat a process. As i subscribe to the service I was emailed an invite. There were all kinds of problems for averyone and Loose button definitely had their work cut out for them. It took about 6 communications to get it straightened out, and that is considering I already have an account, cant wait I will definitely enjoy this birthday gift!!!

    Oh my, can’t believe you had that much trouble! But at least you got your hands on one… these are limited edition. Are you going to wait until December to open it?

    I dont know for sure. I really should as right now I am geting 4 subscription boxes month;y so Ialways have new things.The ux box is no longer monthly it is now seasonal. I am getting a new one in November I havent yet tried (Starlooks) and just got my first topbox after being on a waiting list for about 6 months, really high quality items, not a lot but its only $10. So currently I get Glymm, Glossybox, Beauty Box 5, Topbox and seasonal Luxebox, as well as the new one starting in November. I will likely drop one but every time I decide to they send a great box and I change my mind.
    Do you get most of your items sent by companies for trial or do you buy a ton?
    One thing I really would like to see is tutorials for things especially eye makeup, I really like the Stila palettes as they have great booklets and Lise watier as well often has somesuggestions. I have a couple of palettes from The Balm which are beautiful but do not come with any ideas at all.
    Im a person who came to makeup later in life although I did use facial makeup for years as I bought Aveda sold by my hairdresser, its wonderful but I like the Shoppers Optimum, really rack the points if you shop at the right time, my reward for being the shopper of the family!!
    Sorry such a long post got carried away, love your Webpage and updates look forward to reading it, living in a rural area its grea for keeping up to date. Thanks to all of you!!
