Today I'd like to share a few photos taken during and after a recent shopping trip to Henri Bendel. Earlier this year I was happy to see this New York icon since 1895 open a store in my area in South Florida. I finally ventured in last week to do some holiday shopping. I wanted almost everything in the store so it was a bit difficult to restrain myself!
I bought some sweets and candles for coworkers and a makeup brush set, a trio of Nails Inc. polishes, a glittery makeup bag, and a candle set for myself.
The Bendel candles smell lovely and make nice, reasonably priced gift for friends or colleagues, and the signature brown and white gift box always makes a great impression.
Love the watercolor design on these chocolate wrappers!
These cookies are going to a friend, but I'm kinda wishing I would have gotten some to try myself!
I am always drawn to anything shiny and sparkly!
Old Park Lane
Left to right: Lexington Street, Old Park Lane, Berkeley Mews.
Lexington Street is a chocolatey-plum with blue-green sparkles. It's quite sheer, so needs 3 to 4 coats to look its best. Old Park Lane is a an opaque rose-bronze foil with a very thick formula. This one actually covers quite well with only one coat. Berkeley Mews is a softly shimmery indigo-violet that looks more purple toned on the nails than it does in the bottle and in these swatches.
Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your week!
