For the past couple of months, I have been stalking the web for pictures, release dates and store availability of the limited edition Lumie'res Byzantines de Chanel Palette.. a Chanel makeup collector's dream come true! Well, not until I found out that there are only 1,500 palettes created, and only 200 palettes made it to the U.S. market. The nightmare starts here. First of, is finding a boutique that will stock the item, get on the wait list, and hope to get a phone call. Interestingly enough, even with a price tag of $250, finding this palette is like joining one of Indiana Jones' crusades.
It's undeniably a beautiful palette.. but if a bullwhip, a fedora, and a leather jacket in the middle of summer is what it takes to find it.. I think I'll pass. I'll leave all that to Indy.
