Once upon a time....in France, perhaps in Paris, I do not really know, beautiful make up was created and exported all over the world by Lancome. Once I became of age to select my own brand of make up I was attracted to Lancome. Perhaps it was the lure of a French company. Perhaps I loved the presentation of the rose and the fun gifts they gave me when I purchased. Perhaps it was wonderful customer service....all I know is I was hooked for life.
I found my signature color many years ago, called "Code Red" and I cannot tell you what a match it was in the heavens for me. This is it. No more searching. Code Red. My color. I would get at least two lipsticks at a time. Then it happened....."discontinued" ..."no longer available"!!! What? I checked their site on line; I called stores carrying their line. Everyone suggested comparable colors, etc. but I needed my Code Red! The other new lipsticks did not have the same feel as the other blend called Rouge Sensation. They no longer made Rouge Sensation lipsticks. The color was passable, but not the feel. I was a raving lunatic. In a panic attack over Code Red lipstick from Lancome. How could I go on? By now you are wondering if you can go on reading this! Well, after I composed myself, I remembered "on line shopping" and searched a well known site for Lancome Code Red Lipsticks. I found someone who had about 6 and you could purchase them in sets of two. Viola! I immediately ordered six. My blood pressure started going down. My lips started smiling again. Big sigh! This is the beauty and convenience of on line shopping that we know all so well. Viva Lancome! Viva On line shops!!
