Old Bloomingdale`s Haul

3 years ago

Hi everyone! It seems like collections are being released earlier and earlier, because during the summer, cosmetic brands were releasing their FALL collections! So in the midst of bright summery shades like turquoise and orange, we were also seeing the beautiful tones of fall. Weird right?

One of the items from fall that caught my eye was this eyeshadow quint from the Dior Mystic Metallics collection: Bonne Etoile. I don`t normally wear anything but brown/neutral shadows, but the shades in this palette were muted enough to work with my everyday style.

This palette was a VERY fast seller. I actually went to a Nordstrom store within a couple weeks of its release, thinking it would still be available, and the Dior representative told me that there was a company-wide sell out of this item, meaning that there was none to be found throughout the entire company and no store was going to get another shipment because it was a limited edition item.

I stalked other websites looking for this item, and Saks had it, but their free shipping threshold was $150 or something and I wasn`t about to spend that kind of money just for this palette, but I also didn`t want to pay the $10 shipping just for this item. Luckily, a couple weeks later, Bloomingdale`s released it on their website and all beauty products ship free so I immediately jumped on it. Unfortunately I was going on vacation soon, so I had it sent to my boyfriend`s place in Florida so it wouldn`t be waiting on my porch for me to come home. My boyfriend visited in September so I was finally able to get my hands on it about a month after purchasing.

Because this item was such a popular product, I doubt that any store or website has these available, but you may get lucky. You never know. Someone might have hidden them away in a drawer or something.

The colors in here are stunning and the pans are embossed with stars, which I love. This palette features:
>> olive green
>> platinum taupe
>> bronze
>> silvery blue
>> seafoam green

I never would have thought these colors would go together, but they are very complementary.

Thanks for reading! Were you able to pick up this palette or the Nordstrom exclusive one (shades of purple)?
