Fall 2014 haul

I'm taking my quarterly break from writing about art and collectibles to show the makeup I'll be wearing this fall.  :) I also managed to snag the very popular Bath and Body Works Pumpkin Pecan Waffles 2 in 1, which is delicious.

Fall 2014 makeup haul

Remember how I said I may try one of these new neutral palettes?  Well, I the form of Tom Ford's Nude Dip quad.  As you can tell, despite this purchase I'm still loyal to greens which remain my favorite shade to wear in the fall. 

Clockwise, starting from the top left:  Tom Ford Nude Dip, NARS Jardin Perdu duo, Laura Mercier Satin Matte eye color in Tempting Green, Dior Pied-de-Poule quint, NARS Night Porter eye liner and MAC Water Willow Fluidline Eye Pencil, and Chanel Tisse Venitien.  I wore this Chanel quad with Water Willow and it was so pretty!

I also picked up NARS Unlawful blush, Armani nail polish #214 (the box says it's called Incense Velvet but I've seen it referred to on other blogs as Woodstone - go figure), Chanel Rouge Noir (been wanting this for a while!) and Orage, Llarowe Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (also been wanting the long-gone Essie Starry Starry Night and found the Llarowe was a good dupe), and some new shades from an indie brand called Contrary Polish.  You can see swatches of those here.


As for lips, I'm going very vampy this year.  I did pick up one caramelly/neutral that will pair nicely with smoky eyes.   I actually tried it out for a more neutral look (trying!) with the Tom Ford quad.

From left:  MAC Hearts Aflame, NARS Bette, MAC Lingering Kiss (not sure what I was thinking when I bought this - it's super opaque and showed up way too dark next to my pasty skin...I looked much too goth!), Chanel Aura, and Armani Rouge d'Armani Sheer #114.


So that's what I hauled this fall.  What did you get?
