1. The limited edition collections…
Whenever one of Tom’s limited edition color collections drops, I’m reminded of my recurring need for a dedicated makeup fainting couch (Note to self: invent that).
Like this morning, when I laid eyes on the new spring 2015 collection in all its purple, teal and blue glory.
The duos, the nail polishes and that cray-cray mascara? BANANAS.
It’s $55, and yes, that’s crazy expensive, but Tom’s Eye Defining Pen in Deeper is also outrageously good.
When that mysterious billionaire benefactor I’ve been waiting for since my freshman year eventually knocks on my door and says, “Karen! Let me fund your beauty-loving lifestyle!” I’m going to stockpile hundreds of these pens and keep them in a special climate-controlled underground makeup lair.
It’s so good I want to cry. I have literally — LITERALLY — worn several of these down to the nub.
African Violet is THE purple polish I wear whenever I need to bring my A game. It’s like my comic book super serum, and it looks magnificent on toes (especially when they’re submerged in a five-star resort’s swimming pool).
Otherwise known as “Warm Coppery Bronze Shangri-la…”
I love this pic of Sable because it was taken when my quad was fresh and new, le sigh…
Now it looks busted, like a much-loved teddy bear.
Whenever my neurons aren’t firing well and I can’t string two sentences together, I pull out Cognac Sable.
