lancome news and giveaway!!!

By now you’ve heard the buzz that Lancôme’s Juicy Tubes, the iconic lip gloss that kicked off the gloss frenzy, is turning 10. To celebrate this beauty birthday, they’ve launched Juicy Tubes 100% Natural Origin, a limited-edition collection with honey as its main ingredient. The formula, flavors and pigments are 100% natural origin and preservative-free.

For Earth Day 2010, it was a natural fit for them to partner with Lancôme spokesmodel and environmentalist Elettra Wiedemann’s charity,

Its mission is to unify and concentrate available resources onto a small number of special charity projects around the world. By logging on its website, you can calculate and donate just one day of your daily pay to make a difference. The charity’s latest project will raise funds to help install Solar Electric Panels that will provide sustainable power to a hospital in one of world’s poorest countries, Burundi.

Why am I telling you about any of this?

Well, for one, it's a great cause.

Another reason is that the lip gloss itself is da bomb.

What's also da bomb, is that from April 22nd through April 25th, anyone who purchases Juicy Tubes 100% Natural Origin at the Lancôme Boutique on the Upper West Side in NYC will receive a complimentary limited edition tee.

You see, all of these fabboo designers got together to design T-shirts, to help champion Ellettra's cause!  They are totally fashionista and limited to only 100 made from each designer.  We're talking designers like...House of Diehl, Rag & Bone, Giambattista Valli, Rogan, Chris Benz and Phillip Lim.

Lancôme will also make a donation to to kick off this special Earth Day offering too!

Amazing right?

But wait, that's not it!!!

I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of these totally gorgeous tees and I'm giving the other one away...along with a new Lancome Juicy Tube 100% Natural Origin gloss in Rose Pretty!

The limited edition T-shirt created by House of Diehl (pictured) is a slightly loose-fitting small...just so you know.

Thank you Lancome!

What a great charity, and the SELF project sounds like a good one for a country in need. Hubby is from Guatemala, so I know first hand about the needs in 3rd world countries, and how important projects are to better their way of life.

Thanks for sharing this site. I love the focus on one project at a time to make a real impact and offer real help and hope to people.
I love the current focus on Burundi since I know some refugees from Burundi who have moved to substandard housing in my neighborhood. I've heard some of their stories so this hits quite close to home for me.
My job was just cut back to 16 hours but I know that even just sharing one day with people who have so little is helpful.

The illustration of "Africa at Night" is surprising! Something needs to be done; a Solar Powered Hospital is a great start.

The Burundi Solar Project looks like an awesome idea!! It is so true that we take so much for granted.

Nina said...

Really it is amazing project.Today's giveaway is for Sephora Brand Croc Pop Up Brush Set. This sumptuous, faux-croc cylinder features top-quality Sephora Brand brushes. It also has an ingenious mechanism: simply pull gently up on the circle at the top and your brushes are revealed. Keep it open on a vanity for easy access, or close it for storage or travel. At five inches tall, it's the perfect size for tossing in your carry-on or purse.

Gosh, our power went out for 1 hour this afternoon, and you'd have thought we had lost our minds. Electricity is a part of life for us, so easy, almost always reliable. I read the part of the site about how Africa has hardly any electricity - ever. Eye-opening! Sounds like a great charity.

Thanks for the chance to win this prize.
