  1. The Nars sets call to me as does Tom Ford but I only "need" Flynn (my favorite TF lipstick).

    1. You and I are completely on the same page with both of these sets, and Flynn is why I want the TF set as well! I have to agree with you about Flynn I love it even more than Nude Vanilla, and I really wish that they would make it part of the permanent line in a full size!

  2. The YSL Gloss Stain set had caught my eye but after placing two large Nordstrom orders pre-sale and waiting for some more of the Fall collections to come out, I think I'm going to hold off for now. :-)
