{Confessions of a Product Junkie}...Fall 2015 Makeup Edition

So it's that time of year.  The time when I head to Neimans with good intentions of buying an item or two, and leave with my Neiman's card smoking instead.  I can't seem to help myself.  I like to refresh a couple of times a year.  I like to change it up.

My first stop was at the Tom Ford counter.  Tom Ford is the God of Lipstick.  It's stupid expensive, and worth every single penny (in my opinion).  I can buy one tube and it lasts the entire season.  For fall, I purchased one of the new colors called "So Vain".

They recommended a gloss to go over it called "Love Bruise".  Now as is often the case, I've been there and done that, but I was almost out of it.  I actually produced the tube of lip gloss I purchased in the spring, but had worn like a total of 3 times, so they just exchanged it with a new tube of Love Bruise.  (I love the TF gloss, but not over their Matte Lipsticks.  My spring/summer color was a Matte...Be forewarned that if you use a gloss over their Mattes, the lipstick will only last 28 seconds before coming off.)

The make-up guy also talked me into another of their new Fall products.  It's an "Eye and Cheek Shadow", and I got the "Plum" color.  It's got lighter tones on the right, and darker tones on the left.  I've been wearing it as a blush and also eyeshadow and teaming it with my favorite product from summer, the TF Cream and Powder Eye Color.  I also think I can pair it with the Chanel eye quad that I used last fall.

I like a dark liner, so they suggested a really dark navy eye liner.  I went for the Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof in "Marine".  I've been doing a fine line of black liner on top and then going over the top with the Marine and smudging it a bit.  Then just marine on bottom.

I've been using Laura Mercier face makeup for over two years now without a change.  I recently decided it was time for a  change up, so while at Neimans, I fully cycled myself back around to Armani.

The Primer...

The Luminous Silk Foundation...
(I wear #2 because that is the lightest color)

I really went all in y'all... I got the Fluid Sheer in #1 to use as a highlighter.  I haven't done a highlighter before, and I'm totally loving it!... 
(note:  I bought it, but cannot seem to find the Fluid Sheer in #1 anywhere online)

and finally, the Luminous Silk Compact in #2....

Here's a quick picture I took on Wednesday morning as I was running out to court.  I didn't spend a long time on my makeup or anything, just a typical day's quick application, but I'm wearing all of the products that I wrote about...

So that's it for makeup purchases until it's time to shake it up again next Spring!

Looks beautiful! We haven't tried these brands yet. We usually stick with Bobbi Brown.
