    Apparently, that's how Ava ordered - she has listed the number in the post...I want to wait a bit and see if I can find it somewhere with free shipping - I only want the darker nail polish.

    I was at Hysan Place last October! Is the formula of Pearl River the same as the 5 colour eyeshadow palette we got 2 years ago? I like the colours in Pearl River, but I don't reach for the eyeshadow palette in that formula often. I think there is a chance this collection might come to my country, since we are in Asia and geographically close. Hope I get to see it in person!

    It looks the same, doesn't it? I am hoping she (the blogger linked earlier) posts a review on it so I can decide!

    Excellent news! I will be stalking my Bay counters regularly. I know that a couple of them are having events around the end of next week in-store, so maybe that might be when the collection will arrive?

    Yes, next week is GWP event - Chanel is giving large white patent makeup bag with several trial size products (I forgot which ones) if you spend $200. They said that Hong Kong items can be included so I am assuming they are going to sell them next week. This is not the first time the Bay gets exclusives - last summer they had the Asian collection (the one Nordstrom usually has for their summer events).

    It shipped to stores on the 28th, so it should arrive at US counters this week. (If they didn't receive it already)

    I would really like to get the eyshadow palette, but I don't want to have to jump through hoops to get it. I hope that it shows up on Chanel's website.

    Review of the palette and swatches from BTiB:

    http://bestthingsinbeauty.blogspot.ca/2013/02/chanel-ombres-matelassees-eyeshadow.html

    Very, pretty, although I have to admit that I feel like I have similar colours. Very interested in the two nail polishes, though!

    Stopped by bergdorff and they didn't know what I was talking about. Bloomies told me March when I called. I tried to call Saks because best things in beauty said she bought hers at a Saks but they wouldn't pick up the phone when I called 3 times. I took a chance and went there and they had it. I bought the old green one too. Saks seems to get these types of items first. I may have to look into getting one of their reward cards. So any NYC girls in a rush to get this, Saks has it. Sorry I forgot to look for the polish as I wasn't into those.

    Saw this collection online - chanel.com I just ordered the darker nail polish - Western Light - and after taxes $32.50 is ouchhhhhhhhhhh! Hope the color turns out good..it looked in all the swatches that I saw.

    Swatches of Eastern Light (white) and Western Light (dark) here:

    http://retailtherapy.onsugar.com/Chanel-Hong-Kong-Collection-Eastern-Light-Western-Light-Vernis-28174578

    I liked the white one but amn't sure if it would look that great on my hands. I hardly ever use Attraction, but this is a beautiful creamy white...

    I just saw this too. I was considering it, but now I don't know. There are so many other collections coming out for Spring and I'm thinking of trying the Le Metier de Beaute, too.




    I get by with a little help from my FRIENDS...

    Go for it.
    LMdB isn't at all Nordstroms and the new palette is not out at Nordstrom yet. LiveChat said they were definitely getting it, but my SA called 4 different stores and they said there's no LMdB rep it's just on an endcap so no one knows anything about it. It's on the NM website now though.
