Mini Chanel Haul at Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I feel like the cosmetics anniversary sale at Nordstrom this year wasn’t as special as before. Some of the brands such as Shu Uemura, YSL and Dior had really crappy “exclusive” items. The only brand that caught my eyes would be Chanel. The exclusive item is called Quatuor Boutons De Chanel, a neutral toned eyeshadow palette.

Description on Nordstrom website:

Shade combinations ranging from matte to frost to satin for multiple looks, contrasting or complementary. Apply dry for subtle shadowing. Slightly moistened applicator gives a more intense shade. Organic polymer derivatives ensure smudge-proof long wear, particularly in high temperature or humidity. Dermatologist tested.

Packaging wise there’s nothing special about this eye palette, only except some small details.

But I do find it’s made in Italy and the pans are round instead of rounded square.

The sponge applicator is also on the right side. So they’re more like European and Asian version. Swatch is coming soon.

I also got a nail polish gift set. There’s a Rouge CoCo lipstick tester and two nail polishes.

509 Paradoxal and 440 Gold Lame

See Paradoxal swatch at my yesterday’s CotW post. For the Gold Lame, SA at Nordstrom said this color is a Nordstrom exclusive. Hmm… I don’t believe that. I know it was actually released along with Black Velvet and Illusion D’or as part of the Noir Et Or Paris-Shanghai Collection. They were sold in Chanel boutiques and online. But it was sold out quickly at my local boutique. And I always have a weird issue with these LE items. I tend to wait and think I don’t want it. But once it’s gone, I’d order my husband to hunt down for me. To save himself from further hassle, he insisted me to get it now.

Don’t you think it looks similar to Gold Fiction?

    yay for more chanel goodies 🙂 i love the gold chanel imprints on the eyeshadows, so elegant and so pretty! I didn’t get anything at the nordies sale this year, by the time I went most of the stuff (I wanted jewelries) were gone, and I didn’t find any cosmetics deal too interesting, you were right!

    Do you prefer Chanel or Japanese eyeshadows for example Lunasol? My collection is full of Japanese stuff, I need some western brands to balance them out haha!
