Spring colors

Hi.  My name is Kara, and I'm a make-up addict.  I love new make-up.  I am very brand loyal when it comes to everything except make-up.  Over the years, I've hopscotched around from make-up counter to make-up counter.

It all started in 6th grade with Clinique.  Then in high school I moved to Lancome.  It was a forced move.  Clinique didn't have make-up that was light enough for my complexion.  I wear the lightest shade that any given brand sells.  It's formulated for me and vampires.  Then I switched to MAC.  Then Laura Mercier.  Then Chanel.  Then Trish McEvoy.  Then Armani.  Then I started mixing Armani, McEvoy, Nars, &  MAC.


On Friday, I was in Neimans with my Mom.  We had gone down to Dallas to see my uncle's new house and traffic was it's typical Friday afternoon horribleness, so we went into Northpark to kill time...and it turns out spend some money.

I just popped in to buy a birthday gift.  I don't know if the sales lady sensed something in me, or if it was just her lucky day, but I turned out to be her golden ticket of commission sales that day.  I got totally sucked into the Tom Ford make-up counter.  It was my rabbit hole and I fell hard.  In my defense, I tend to always get new make-up colors at the beginning of Fall and the beginning of Spring.  As is the case, I had been feeling droopy and blah, and was contemplating a trip for new colors soon.

Here's what I got:

This eyeshadow pallet...


It's called "Golden Mink".  I Love the sparkly colors up top...

A new blush that's really more of a bronzer.  It's called "Savage".  It was interesting because they put this color on me and my mom.  It looked totally different.  It helped warm me and my vampire-toned complexion...

I also got this lipstick  in "Pink Adobe" and lipgloss in " Sahara Pink"...

Now I feel ready for Spring & Summer 2012.  It's really amazing how much some new make-up improves my overall attitude!

Those eyeshadow colors are so pretty! I haven't tried Tom Ford makeup, but I'd become a convert for that eyeshadow!
