Beautifully packaged products. Science-backed results. Our beauty team knows and loves Lancôme (just be sure that all have the accent) for all of the reasons that you, do, too.
But something you may not know? Their beauty services are totally bookable (and complimentary!)
In the last few seasons, Lancôme outposts from coast to coast have been quietly staffing up to offer skincare treatments, makeup services, and more on demand. Which means that groundbreaking services and new products (see: current GLOSSYBOX obsessions Advanced Génifique Sensitive Antioxidant Serum and Monsieur Big Mascara) are available to try with an expert’s help before you commit to taking them home.
We hit the brand’s flagship counter at New York’s Bloomingdale’s 59th Street to investigate. Here’s what we loved.
The Radiance Boosting Facial
Before we got down to business, brand beauty expert Irv Victor prepped our day-weary face with a splash and massage of Eau Micellar Water cleanser.
Next? Victor followed up with Advanced Génifique to increase skin’s radiance on the spot and over the next week with regular use.
To up the skin-boosting effects, he useda Genifique device, a massage tool that helps the serum absorb on the spot. (In addition to an ultra-smooth starting point, it delivered a week’s worth of daily use benefits in mere seconds.)
A Glam With Us Service (Or Two)
Designed to be done in under 10 minutes, and get you off to a big day or night in style, Lancôme’s Glam With Us services are a (free) hidden luxury that only made us love Victor more.
We opted for two: the “Wakeup Your Makeup” and “Sealed With a Kiss” makeup and lip color consultations. Not only did we walk out with a full day-to-night face, but also a mini tube of custom-mixed Le Teint Particulier foundation to use for the rest of the week.
Another standout? Victor was thrilled to talk through other brands we loved to suggest more effective Lancôme products that would deliver effects we already loved…and then some.
The Brow Bar
Clients ask for brow guru Lily by name. With over 20 years in the business and 13 years with Lancôme, she’s not just a pro at shaping, but building instant trust, too. We started with a white pencil outline (to get on the same page about what she’d be taking off), then a hard wax followed by a tea tree mist.
Finally (and super key for the brand’s lunchtime clients) Lily touched us up any redness with a custom foundation blend, then showed us how to fill our own brows using the brand’s Sourcils Styler Brow Gel.
Now’s your turn to try these services for yourself (and share what you think in the comments below!) In NYC? Call 212-705-2022 to book an appointment at Lancôme’s 59th Street location or stop by your local counter.
