My advice (which I follow in non-beauty, since I have the good fortune of needing to buy new products all the time for the blog!): 1) remind myself of how often impulse buys tend to bite me in the rear, 2) tell myself that if I’m still interested in it in a week or two, then I can give it real consideration, 3) remind myself of any financial/life goals that an impulse purchase would get in the way of.

Foundation, blush, highlighter, powder, brows, cream eyeshadow + powder eyeshadow in the crease, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick! I’m most likely to use a blush like Tom Ford Lovelust or Chanel Jersey, and then for eyes, likely a Giorgio Armani Eye Tint or Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes plus whatever brown/taupe powder eyeshadow may be lying out for the crease.

Tom Ford’s Lips & Boys set (not last year’s but th year before) – it enabled me to get everything swatched before Thanksgiving, but it did have 25 repeats. They also upcharge just for the box (which was a disappointment). It was, mostly because I’ve found that having to turnaround something that quickly on Thanksgiving/Black Friday is just mentally tough for me. But as an actual product? No, not at all – the box was scratched and felt cheap, not worth the upcharge.
