This post is to celebrate all those times we fall into an irrational purchase for the pure beauty of it. Because...this happened...
***Item purchased by me. Affiliate link included.***
I think the first time I saw promo pics for this Chanel beauty of a highlighter/powder thingy was on British Beauty Blogger back in March. I was so bummed to read it was only going to be available in France and the UK. I obsessed for a few weeks trying to figure out how I might be able to obtain one - Ebay??? After awhile I forgot about it. Until I read it was going to be a Nordstrom Exclusive for the Anniversary Sale. Helloooooooo!!! Obsession re-ignited!!!
Tell you what though...I was really good and actually swatched this in store before purchasing. I know. GASP. I was afraid it was going to be a little too bronzy, but the gorgeous swatch session proved otherwise. Of course, I have yet to wear this because I can't bear to lose the lace pattern. And I can assure you it will go away - I went in the morning on the first day of the pre-sale and it was already well worn and it looked like any other compact except around the outer edges. I apologize...no swatches...maybe someday. For now I wanted to share my excitement and Rocky moment for having (finally!!!) been able to purchase this!!! Yaaaaay!!!
Ok, a couple more Chanel pics :-)
This is still available for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, HERE. And if you happen to use Ebates, Nordstrom is 10% right now :-)
Have you caved on any pretties lately that you've been obsessing over??!
