Chanel Les Expressions de Chanel Collection Swatches and Review

Friday, August 10, 2012

While I was in Asia, all of the Chanel counters had a beautiful display of the newest collection, Chanel Les Expressions de Chanel 2012.  I was very tempted to take a picture but the SA was watching me like a hawk.  Nevertheless, I did manage to sneak in a couple of photos to share with you.  This collection is not yet available in the US and I'm not sure when it will be released.

The collection has 3 eyeshadow quads - Intuition, Variation, and Spices.  Intuition is new and paired with Vision Illusion D'ombre. Variation is very different from the old Variation quad that was available back in 2007.  This is paired with Illusoire. The Spices Quad is paired with Abstraction Illusion D'ombre. Although I've read the 3rd quad should be Eclosion, all the counters I visited had Spices on the displays.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

This post was supposed to be published 3 weeks ago, when the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale first began.  Unfortunately I had to hop on a plane right after I had a chance to crop all the images. Although the sale has ended, Nordstrom still has some of these items available at the store/online.  If you're interested, I'd say get on the website or call your local store as soon as possible. Not all of the items were listed online so you can call the store directly to purchase them. Prices still remain the same.

Chanel - Fleur De Lotus was an Asian Exclusive Collection that Nordstrom carried exclusively for the sale.  It is also now available on
