is launching October 15th on www.loosebutton.com, 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.

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 LooseButton.com 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.
