The only thing I bought was TOM FORD Gloss Luxe Lip Gloss 10 Love Lust because it was on sale.  I also ordered TOM FORD Gloss Luxe Lip Gloss 06 Ravish because it is also on sale and I really like the formula.

Between the F&F sale and the annual fall/winter sale that was 20% off for Rouge I'm kinda shopped out at this point with Christmas and everything 😅. So I only picked up one thing a MAKE UP FOR EVER Buffing Foundation Brush 112 . I'm having such a hard time with my base right now with my dry skin it's driving me nuts! If it's not streaky foundation it's dry patches or pilling of some sort or it just looks down right like pancake yuck! I have so many products to try and nail down a system that works it's not even funny. I guess it doesn't help that I've gone makeup free for about 85% of the time these last 3 years lol. Practice, practice, practice and get back up on that horse again. It's like I've forgotten all my tips and tricks - I'm sure long Covid isn't helping me

I feel like I could have written this post. I have so many foundations, primers and skin tints and I am always  trying to find the best combo for my dry skin that looks patchy after I put skin care and make up on. No matter what concealer I try and I have several, all I see is it settling in my lines under my eyes. I try different eye creams to hydrate under my eyes but it is not helping.

 

 I really like the sunny days tinted sunscreen from tower 28. It’s decent coverage and goes on really nicely. I also really like the make up for ever HD skin with their hydra primer. I also had good luck with the Lancôme Ultra wear foundation with La base primer. 

good luck!!

@niki172  I am sorry you are dealing with long Covid.  And you are right. It changes things.  But I am going to have confidence that you are going to hit on the right combo for you.  And it may be something different from what you have used in the past. Your tips and tricks are still there for you to use. 🥰

Re: Holiday 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket? (Updated 12/1)

@Cissy63 thank you very much. I *may* be dealing with Covid rebound (yay so much fun!). I spiked a fever and I feel like the fog lifted a little bit tonight as I only had to search for one word (man that's sad that I see that as a win lol). Having Fibromyalgia I thought long Covid would be just like that as I'm used to fatigue, but having to deal with cognitive issues and things such as spelling words backwards while typing is extremely frustrating to me.

Re: Holiday 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket? (Updated 12/1)

I hope you're feeling better now, @niki172💗

Re: Holiday 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket? (Updated 12/1)

I like Make Up For Ever brushes, @niki172! I bought the powder brush last sale.

Re: Holiday 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket? (Updated 12/1)

@curlychiquita that's good to know! I've eyed their powder brushes in the past but they're always sold out. This brush came highly recommended so fingers crossed.

Re: Holiday 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket? (Updated 12/1)

For the amount of money I spend here , you’d think you’d let us use 20% of more than once 

Re: Holiday 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket? (Updated 12/1)

You actually can use it an unlimited amount of times if you shop through the Sephora on the Kohls website, @sk56.

Re: Holiday 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket? (Updated 12/1)

@CookieGirl1 @I think they changed it to one time because they have a unique code. 

Re: Holiday 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket? (Updated 12/1)

I’m racking up on SEPHORA COLLECTION Complete Brush Set as great additional Too Faced Too Faced Christmas Bake Shoppe Makeup Set. Can’t forget the most refreshing face mask SEPHORA COLLECTION Face Mask. I’m the best gift giver of the family all my secret is shopping this sale #holidaygifting

I was thrilled to score 20% off on top of the discounted Sunday Riley sets! Love their skincare and getting such a killer deal on them!

Re: Holiday 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket? (Updated 12/1)

@sonjasays   These are terrific sets.  Congratulations 😀

Re: Holiday 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket? (Updated 12/1)

I agree, @sonjasays! These are great sets for a great price.

Re: Holiday 2022 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket? (Updated 12/1)

Sunday Riley has amazing products @sonjasays , but they are pricey, so that 20% discount comes so handy! 😃
