I went yesterday, but unlike you I couldn't stop myself buying nail polish. I picked up a 4 piece Nails Inc set all glitter polishes (in 3 shades of purple and a holographic gold). I did have to do a bit of rearranging (oops) to get everything I wanted in one set. Naughty me, lol. :P
lol! i remember when i re-arranged a set in tk maxx last year - i felt so bad about it but really wanted certain shades! lol!
i was reading your posts on this and i do think that it is crazy that her dad marked up the package with such a high value. depending on what happens with customs i would contact her and ask her to pay half because it would suck to pay so much for no good reason!
I got to see Chanel's Vision and Abstraction in person today, in HoF, and swatch them on my hand. Abstraction looks a kind of salmon pink with gold sparkle, while Vision is a beautiful gold. The SA was wearing Vision, and it looked lovely on her. I had no intention of buying there and then, so told her I was looking at them so I could tell someone which one I wanted for my birthday (which is on Monday) lol. I'm actually planning on buying one of them with my Boots points, since in reality nobody will buy me makeup for my birthday as they think I have too much already. She informed me that both are permanent, which is always good to know as it means I could get the other one when I get my next lot of HoF vouchers. She also told me the Autumn collection will be out in a couple of weeks.
i still havent managed to pick these up and to be honest i think i will have to wait until payday! i have spent so much this month on things for myself that i'd feel guilty if i bought anything else. the gold looks amazing but i will get the pink one too because i think it looks like it will look ok on me - usually i am funny with pink shades because they don't look right on me.
