Haul: Lancome Advanced Genefique, Rouge in Love, swatches and more!

If there was one brand I had to pick as a favourite in the "all-round makeup and skin care category", I'd pick Lancome. They've already come out with my HG eye-cream, my HG mascara and a lip lacquer I love.
I've been wanting a Rouge in Love lipstick for a while now after I tested one out and it lasted through a greasy pesto. Each time, the lighting works such that I end up with a shade too dark (thanks for taking them off my hands, Mum. Not that you had a choice).
This time, however, I struck gold. I picked:

Rouge in Love 300M Beige Dentelle
Rouge in Love 230M Rose Rendezvous (the box was smashed up in my suitcase though the tube is intact!)
Advanced Genefique: I've used Genefique and liked it, and this version is supposed to work even better. Will open it after my No 7 Protect & Perfect Serum and Lancome Visionnaire are over.
More about Rouge in Love:
Why isn't this range on people's Holy Grail lists? I am in love with the formula, the staying power, the cute metal packaging, the creaminess and the shades.
Both these shades are Matins (morning) and are light, though buildable. I've stepped outside my comfort zone with both of them.
230M Rose Rendezvous (swatched to the right, light and two swipes) is a warm peachy coral while 300M Beige Dentelle (swatched left; one and two swipes) is the best neutral I now own. You can see that just the one swipe gives enough payoff. The swatches are in natural light on a somewhat rainy day.
Now for the gift with purchase. I received a decent clutch. And quite a few samples!

    1. Butter up the SA. Tell 'em how much you LOOOOVED the sample they gave you last time and that's why you're buying the full size this time. If you're travelling, say you forgot to bring day cream (or whatever product). If not, say you're going on a weekend break and can't be bothered to cart along full-sizes and were wondering if they had travel sizes... Just kidding...actually I just ask if I can see try general samples across their range as I have very acne-prone skin and make it a point to buy a few things from them. That works, clearly!
