When you think of Paris, dream-like visions of elegance and romance pop to mind. And no one knows this better than Lancôme. In the spirit of celebrating the holiday season, the beauty giant has created three limited-edition To Paris with Lancôme holiday gift sets featuring exclusive packaging designed by one of Sephora’s talented artists.

In the spirit of artistic collaboration, Lancôme invited members of Sephora’s staff across Canada to submit a packaging design drawing from the theme “Parisian Lights” for inspiration and using only Lancôme makeup products. From the numerous submissions, eight finalists were selected by Lancôme, Sephora and guest judge Jessica Desjardins of the blog Beautezine. The public was then invited to select the winner by voting through a special Facebook app.

After 10 days of voting, Alyssa Steinhubl from the Kingsway Mall Sephora in Edmonton was declared the winner. Her charming illustration depicting an elegant woman in a ball gown looking upon a Parisian landscape complete with stars and the Eiffel Tower will be featured on the limited-edition To Paris with Lancôme holiday sets exclusive to Sephora stores nationwide. The cherry on top — she has also won a trip to Paris.

The three gift sets feature a selection of Lancôme’s best-selling products and will be sold exclusively at Canadian Sephora stores as of October with prices starting at $35.
