Nordstrom haul!! Chanel, Burberry and more!

This is a haul that I have been waiting to receive for the longest time because I placed my order online in end July and vPost only delivered to me yesterday. Honestly, this is a huge test of my patience as I really want to get my hands on them FAST!

So here it is!!!

1) Burberry Light Glow Blush in Tangerine
2) Chanel Ombres Contraste Duo in Sable Emouvant (Yeah!!!)
3) Le Metier De Beaute Creme Tint in poppy
4) Burberry Sheer eye shadow in Midnight Brown
5) Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss in Troublant
6) Nars foundation pump applicator

What made me haul is really just Chanel Ombres Contraste Duo in Sable Emouvant since it is no longer available in Singapore but you know just how scary online shopping is..... click click click and you have a cart full of items, lol.

Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in Midnight Brown needs no introduction as there have been raves and raves about this shade and I'm glad I got it. Burberry Light Glow Blush in Tangerine is the only shade that caught my eyes when I look through their blush collection and I love the neutral peachy shade.

The highlight of the whole haul.... Chanel Ombres Contraste Duo in Sable Emouvant. I am a happy girl just looking at it. I love neutrals!

Le Metier De Beaute creme tint in poppy was quite a wild card in this haul. I did not meant to purchase this but the few days before I made my purchase online, there have been a few beauty blogs posting about this and so I conveniently added to my cart since I am keen to try out a cream blush. Lovely pink shade even though it looks peach in the picture. I just can't seem to get the picture to turn out well! :(

I fell in love with Troublant when I first set eyes on the swatches online and I knew I am getting it. I am a fan of muted rose or plum shade and this was what attracted me to Troublant. It has light gold shimmers in it as well which looks lovely.

Lastly, Nars foundation pump applicator...... I have no idea why companies will want to make the design of their containers user unfriendly and Nars is one of them. A foundation bottle with just an opening is just plain stupid. But thinking of it now, Nars is not so stupid after all, isn't it? Because they just manage to make me cough out a small amount for this pump!

My shopping experience with Nordstrom so far has been quite pleasant from friendly and efficient customer service officers who can assist you via Live Chat to prompt delivery. This is certainly not going to be pocket friendly for me! Haha

It is finally going to be another long weekend so do enjoy yourself and Selamat Hari Raya to all!


  1. Super duper haul Ruby. I can't wait for you to try the LMdB blush, I love it so much. I can't wait to hear what you think about your buys, they are so lust worthy!

    1. Jacq! I'm having a hard time playing with them already since I hardly out on anything for work nowadays. The only time to play is weekends!

  2. Hi Chris, not sure why your comment did not appear on the blog although I received the email notification. Tangerine is indeed a lovely shade and I have to say your posting on it previously did make me more determined to get it. :)

  3. *palpitates* SO MUCH PRETTINESS! I die!

    I hope you'll like Troublant as well. I went to the beach yesterday with only my eyebrows filled, but a bit of it brought me back to life! Love the formula of LMdB cream blush as well! Can't wait to see you review everything!

    1. Sunny, this is the danger of online shopping!

  4. I wanna see how the burberry blush looks like on you?!?! :)
    How does it perform for u so far? Does it last thru the day?

    1. Blush generally don't last very long on me (approximately 4-6 hours max) because of my oil and shine. But I really like the subtle glow of this shade. I will do a review of this blush soon.
