Tackling beauty clutter…

February 15th, 2010 by Chassin

in the inbox, that is. And if I find a product and service I just LOVE, I’ll spread the word. Many women at the lunches ask me, what make-up is on your face/head? Here it is: Lancome Absolue foundation. This week get free shipping and free samples with code below. I am on the Lancome-USA.com email list and got 9 different travel size products FREE with my order of one foundation today.

Step one: visit a Lancome department and find out your color (don’t depend on your computer monitor to be accurate). Not sure? Don’t be shy…they need your business so ask the artist to do different colors on each side of your face and wear it home. Or try both formulas of Absolue.

Step two: Always start online shopping at www.goodshop.com and enter Bald Girls Do Lunch as your charity. For this promo, enter Lancome as  your store

Step three: At checkout use code “warmth” (week of February 15-21, 2010) for trial samples and free shipping……AND if you login as a regular you get even more for a total assortment of  9 travel size products.
