Lancome and Genes Day 2010

Lancome and Genes Day 2010

Lancôme will host Genes Day, a celebration of the beauty of scientific research. On this one day, Lancôme will highlight Génifique’s unique ability to deliver results in just seven days by donating $7 from the sale of every bottle of Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. Lancôme, the world’s largest luxury beauty brand, has pledged to donate a minimum of $100,000 to St. Jude.

The suggested retail prices for Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate are $78 for 1 ounce; $98 for 1.7 ounces; $125 for 2.5 ounces. The $7 donation will be made for every concentrate sold at a Lancôme counter in the United States or at lancome-usa.com on October 22nd. Those new to Génifique are welcome to stop by the counter that day for a deluxe seven-day sample of the product. No purchase is necessary.

Internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases, St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay.

You can also donate directly to St. Jude here!

Dolce & Gabbana Amethyst Classic Cream Lipstick

Dolce & Gabbana Evocative Beauty: Amethyst

Dolce & Gabbana Amethyst Classic Cream Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a semi-opaque, dark, reddened burgundy with a glossy finish.  It’s kind of like a cream, but there’s so much shine, describing it as a cream seems inadequate.  It’s very smooth and glides on effortlessly, but this is the kind of texture that can bleed more often than not.  I recommend using either a matching lip liner or a clear lip liner around the outer edge of the lip to help keep the lip color in its place.

Dolce & Gabbana’s Cream Lipsticks wear an average of four hours on me, but this shade is pigmented and deep enough that I get around five and a half.  It is heavily scented with rose, but I mostly smell it in the tube, not so much when worn.

  • Product: 28/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: It’s a nice vampy shade for autumn–it’s bold, dark, but the glossiness keeps it a little lighthearted, too.

AVAILABILITY: Saks
