Gift-with-purchase is a beloved tactic of the beauty industry to get you to shell out an extra $15 to get that generic makeup pouch you don’t really need, filled with samples that don’t go with your complexion at all.
Lancôme is raising the bar a bit this month by collaborating with Chris Benz on a gift-with-purchase that will make you seek out the Lancôme counter even if you don’t need a new Juicy Tube yet. The cosmetics brand and designer are tight; Lancôme has sponsored Benz’ shows for the past several seasons and he had his own lipstick last spring called Chris & Tell.
From now through June 25, when you spend $60 or more at Saks counters (or on Saks.com) on Lancôme products, you’ll get a Chris Benz-designed tote filled with Lancôme goodies. In addition to a Définicils Precious Cells Mascara and Absolue Hand, you get to choose from two moisturizers. Then you get to choose between a trio of lipstick, Juicy Tube, and blush in either a pink or coral palette.
We love this trend of fashion and beauty collaborations and collisions. More, please!
