Out now: Lancôme Gold Fascination collection

Lancôme Gold Fascination collection

Just 29 days to go until the Olympics kick off in Vancouver—and if you’re a fan girl (as well as a makeup girl), you may want to check out Lancôme‘s Gold Fascination collection. Inspired by Canada’s best female athletes, the limited-edition range includes boxes designed by Canadian artist Raphael Mazzucco.

Did you hear me? I said boxes. Yep, it’s just the outer packaging that’s different—inside, the products have the usual Lancôme black plastic cases. And for that I was disappointed. The artwork is pretty, but who is going to hang on to a tiny piece of cardboard that used to house your eyeshadow quad? Not me. (Sorry Lancôme.)

Available now exclusively at Bay stores across Canada.

Weird! To me that is a lost opportunity on what could have been really cool packaging. After all, we makeup junkies love good packaging ;-)

True dat! I suspect they cheaped out because it’s just a Canadian launch not international…
