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?
