When we think about brands that delight not only ourselves, but our mothers, sisters, grandmothers, next-door neighbors, and that woman we just bumped into on the street, a select few beauty heavyweights come to mind. First and foremost? Lancôme. In the 75-plus years since its inception, the French brand has found its way into both our cosmetic bags and our hearts: If you're using Lancôme products, be it makeup, skincare, or fragrance, there's a pretty good chance you're getting it right. They're just that good.
Lancôme could easily rest on the richness of its heritage, but instead, the brand is perpetually moving forward (or at the very least, reinventing the past). It's why Lancôme is pretty much a sure thing for all the ladies on your holiday list.
