My Bergdorf Goodman Haul

Bergdorfs was a madhouse today! The gift Beauty Event is in full swing, and you'll receive $25 off a $100 purchase on the beauty level, in addition to the gifts with purchase that many brands are offering. I had a difficult time deciding what to buy, and ultimately settled on Le Metier de Beaute Fresh Creme Tint in Tenne, Edward Bess Eye Shadow in Intimate, Edward Bess Lipstick in Pure Impulse and a replacement Clinique Take the Day Off Balm. Unfortunately the Le Metier proved to be out of stock, and I had to make a game time decision about a replacement. I ultimately ended up with Fekkai Marine Summer Hair Zero Humidity Frizz Control which I'll post about separately.

Pure Impulse: a warm nude. This looks a bit gray for a minute or so after application, but then melds with my lips to create a stunning natural shade. This lipstick is full coverage with no shimmer.
Intimate: a golden brown with strong khaki tones. Or a khaki with golden brown tones. It's a fabulous shade on my murky green eyes. It's very blendable and the shimmer is subtle.

Intimate and Pure Impulse:
The new Edward Bess Compact Rouge is gorgeous as well. It's a deep burnt rose with a stain-like texture. It looks dark in the pot but blends out well with a dewy quality.

I was helped but the most fabulous sales associate, Eileen, at the Kiehls counter. She could not have been nicer or more patient and she included a veritable slew of Kiehls samples for me to try. Please let me know if you'd like her contact information.

I ordered the Le Metier from Neiman Marcus with their free ship code, NMSHOP and it's due to ship next week.


  1. Hey!! Enjoy your goodies!!! I was going to get the EB After sunset compact rouge but then decided to wait until I test it in person.. :) I ended up calling and getting stuff only from the Paul and Joe counter which I will pick up next week.. hopefully the madness would have subsided by then :)
    Have a good weekend!

  2. Oooh Paul and Joe! I was good and didn't even go over to peak there. It was madness but in a good way--I just felt bad for the sales associates!

  3. i actually ended up placing several separate orders on BG site during this sale. I ended up getting. Chanel Eau Vert Cristalle eau de parfum, and Chanel Bikini Peach Glossimer. Order #2 i got Le Metier de Beaute goodies. Framboise lip cream, and eyeshadow singles in Alexandrite and Fig and I bought Chanel aqualumiere lip gloss in Bondi Beach. Order 3 consisted of Le Metier moist stain lipstick in Paris and Dubai and last but not least Le Mer Cleansing Fluid. whew. i am now on a no buy for quite a while. good to see your wishlist growing. lol. :-)

  4. What an awesome haul! Yes, the wishlist is never-ending!
