They only sell it in Selfridges London and stand-alone Chanel shops. I've posted about this before so I won't repeat myself.
I bought it. And the Chanel woman said to me: "Would you like to try any others?"
Yes, a Chanel woman offered me samples. I was so taken aback by this unprecedented offer that I didn't take full advantage and say "yes, ALL of them!" and just stuttered something about No 22. The samples are divine. And you get a sample of the one you buy to put in your handbag. Of course ideally it would be in my 2.55 handbag but I'm working on that.
For this historic moment I am going to share more than one photo.
Close up of sample:
So I would have bought Bermuda Shorts by Essie if I could have found it but alas, it wasn't to be. So I got Plugged in Purple by Opi. It's very nice - a sort of electric purple but Opi colours are not as easy to apply as Essie. I won through nonetheless.
By the way, the Opi site is lots of fun. You can pick colours and they show it on a fake hand and you can pick the nail length and skin tone. I spent literally minutes playing with it.

Firstly she had to remove the make-up I had on. For this:
Flower infused cleansing milk - £47
Pure rosewater - £44
Vital Essence - £75
Then she put on a cream:
Firming face cream - £77
Ready to make-up:
Tinted moisturiser - £55
Bio-lift under eye concealer - £57 (as pictured above and it was amazing)
Face powder - £50
4 different eye shadows - £23 each
Mascara - £31
Blusher - £23
Lipstick - £26.50
She used this brush (£23), and this one (£25) and this one (£30) and this one (£64) and this one (£30).
This comes to a total of £749.50. I said thank you very much and left without spending a penny.
Looking fabulous of course. Might try Bobbi Brown next which will feel like Walmarts in comparison...

So every week I am trying a different colour to find the right one. This week's choice is Garnet by Essie.
Yeah, it's not going to happen. Nice colour and all but a bit of a dull red I think.

Also, I am going to contradict myself. I always used to think it wasn't worth spending much money on shampoo and conditioner. Well, I have changed my mind since using the L'Oreal Professional range for coloured hair. This really has made a big difference to my hair. It makes it softer. I've just ordered this special pack.
Still loving my Chanel lipstick...

Grass. Hmmm, I thought. Typical Lush and their madcap ways. But then I smelt it. Now let's face it, who doesn't like the smell of freshly mown grass? This is really a lovely shower gel, deeply green and fresh. It makes a fab bubble bath. It's what Lush do very, very well. Perfect for the summer.

Had a shower when I got in to road test it. It's not normal how excited I get by new products. Anyway, it's very nice in terms of texture and feeling on skin but I was under-whelmed by the scent. I like to be able to really smell my shower gels. This is very blah. Still, for a few quid, it's worth a shot for the summer.
Also, I now have four Masterpiece Max mascaras lined up, unopened. You know, in case there is a world shortage or something...
