Product Review: Lancome Destiny Cube

Ever since I caught a glimpse of this Lancome Destiny Cube ($50) back in April, I've been obsessed. I know, I'm an eager beaver, because it doesn't even hit stores until September. But lucky for me, the folks over at Lancome sensed my desperation and I've been blissfully fiddling around with this Mystery box for the past couple of days.

What makes this limited edition piece special is its innovative design and its mood deciphering quality. It is part of the Gucci Westman Fall 2007 Mystery Game Collection and was inspired by an 18th-century Chinese box.

It is a cube-shaped contraption that opens from two sides with two lip glosses and a mirror on one side, and two eye shadows and a mirror on the other. It is available in two palettes: Charisma (pale pink lips with brown and violet shadows) and Deep Fascination (red and burgundy lips with light green and pink shadows). The shape resembles a die, and each side is labeled with different moods such as: coquette, mysterious and jealous. To read my review on the Destiny Cube,

I found that the colors blend very easily and nicely complement each other. I only wonder why they made it so darn heavy. It looks beautiful on my bathroom counter, but there's no way I'd tote this around in my handbag or travel bag. There is a fair amount of product inside, but it pales in comparison to how much packaging weight is around it.

But then again, who am I kidding? I can't travel with half the products I own anyway—no one makes a makeup case that large!
