Those of you who follow me on Twitter will know that I placed an order with Harrods almost two weeks ago. I had been very impatiently waiting until it arrived today.
I had been planning on making an order for some time but then I received an email offering 15% off any order I make. I couldn't refuse!
Harrods will ship many beauty items to Australia excluding of course things like fragrance and sadly certain items like Tom Ford foundations. Shipping is £25.00 which may seem high but VAT (UK tax) is deducted from your order which in this case was around £22.00.
I placed the order on the 20th September and it spent over a week in the UK before it left for Australia this past Saturday. Shipping time was fast and efficient.
The order arrived in a brown cardboard box printed with the Harrods logo. How cool does it look? Inside that box was another box. This time a black thick cardboard box with Harrods printed on the top. This was wrapped in bubble wrap. Inside the box was another package of bubble wrap. Inside that bubble wrap was two packages wrapped in bubble wrap. Finally inside those was my items. Moral of the story? Harrods use a lot of bubble wrap and pack their orders well! Also included was a nice little printed card thanking me for shopping at Harrods.
Chanel Rogue Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in 94 Extatique
A hot pink Chanel lipstick, how could I not purchase it? I haven't tried this lipstick formula so I am excited to give it a go.
YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Illuminating Foundation in BR10 Beige Rose
I have been dying to try this foundation since I heard it was being released. This is the main reason for my Harrods order. This shade is not available in Australia and my skin needs a pink based foundation.
Tom Ford Cheek Color in 01 Love Lust
What can I say? I have been wanting to expand my Tom Ford collection since I purchased my first Tom Ford lipstick. This is a gorgeous shade and I cannot wait to use it.
Burberry Light Glow Blush in No.3 Rose Blush & Lip Mist in No.207 Camelia Pink
I couldn't order from an iconic British store without ordering something from an iconic British brand. Cannot wait to try these either and they smell really good too.
What have you hauled lately? Ever ordered from Harrods before?
Very jealous of your haul! I'm dying to get my hands on the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation I think it would be great for my dry skin perhaps it's time for me to start writing up a Christmas wishlist....ReplyDelete
Haha I start my Christmas wishlist not long after Christmas :)Delete
I'm curious as to how much the TF blush cost you. A TF blush is the next TF makeup item on my wishlist!ReplyDelete
I paid around £32 for it which is around AU$54.00. It would normally be around £38 which is around AU$64.00 so even without the 15% discount it is cheaper than AU prices. The next item on my TF wishlist is a foundation..Delete
Fantastic haul. I want every single item!ReplyDelete
I've never ordered from Harrods before. The shipping costs always put me off but I completely forgot to take into account the VAT deduction. I'll definitely be placing an order in the future.
The shipping cost put me off for ages too until I realised the VAT deduction. It is best to add what you want to the cart and continue into checkout and you can find out exactly what it will cost with VAT deducted. :)Delete
I didn't know Harrod's shipped internationally. That is good news! Fortunately I'll be walking into the actual store tomorrow so not necessary for now. *can't wait*ReplyDelete
Gorgeous haul. Ahhh Burberry and TF will leave me with no money.
Ah! So jealous, have fun :)Delete
