L’Oreal Gift Box Offer


A couple of weeks ago I swung by Boots to pick up the L’Oreal brow pencil I’d fallen in love with in brunette in a lighter shade and discovered that they were running a gift promotion whereby you got the above package if you spent over £15. I bought the brow pencil I went in for along with a couple of their new chubby lip gloss/sticks – which by the way are lovely. I mainly wanted the box for the mascara so imagine my disappointment when I discovered that it wasn’t infact mascara at all.. it’s a mascara TOP COAT.. whaa?? Last year (or maybe the one before that) L’Oreal launched a version of their Volume Million Lashes with glitter in it.. it wouldn’t have been my first choice but since it was free I thought I’d give it a go.. pretty gutted that it’s not even a regular mascara now but hey.. I might love it. The 2 other products were just bonuses so I have no strong opinion either way.. a red nail polish is always nice but I have about 10 and ditto for the lipstick so I may give those away but if you’re looking to buy makeup as a gift this year I think this little box plus a couple of items you think the giftee would enjoy would be a lovely way to do it and they’ll get twice as much!

Available online when you spend more that £15 on L’Oreal

    Glad you mentioned it’s the top coat , I was going to go and buy a few things just to get the box as I use that mascara and thought I might as well get a few bit for £15 than 1 mascara for a tenner . Never noticed it said top coat either . Thanks xx

    I did the exact same, I got all excited, made sure I spent the £15 to get the box for the mascara, I thought it was just a black mascara. Got home and got excited started to play with the mascara to find out that it was a top coat! I cant imagine I would use it!

    How is the top coat, I think something like that would be fun but would dry out before you used it more than a handful of times (unless you party a lot ;))

    I wish drugstore brands had gifts with offer here too, lovely set though a mascara top coat is not appealing to me either!

    I saw that in boots the other day and even my mum pointed out how good the deal was! No wonder, its not obviously advertised as a top coat either. Quite misleading really! Naughty L’Oreal! Is it a glitter top coat? it might look nice over false lashes? Just a thought
