Tom Ford Love Lust — no surprise there!
I want to instantly see color combinations come together — I want to get inspired by what’s in the palette. There should be obvious combinations that jump out, but then when I look more closely at it, there are even more that come to mind. I like to see more shimmers than mattes (a personal preference) and a variety in tone and undertone.
I like that you can often get more for your money – so value sets and kits! I’m not so much into the mega palettes, but some of the palettes you find during the holiday season are really nice.
I’ve already bought them, I think! The big one was the Marc Jacobs Beauty’ eyeshadow palette! I’m also eyeing a Laura Mercier Souffle body cream set and maybe a philosophy shower gel set…
I am in desperate need of new/more Guerlain Rouge Gs!!
I just plunked down $179 on Guerlain’s special-edition pressed Meteorites for the holiday season (though by the time this question goes live, I may have already reviewed it… as of creating this post, I hadn’t received it yet, so I’ll keep you posted!). The most I’ve spent in a single go was probably the Tom Ford Lips & Boys last year, which was maybe $1600? It was worth it, since it was very helpful to readers.
