    I want to see the Lippmann trio. Laura mercier and Bobbi Brown sets sound nice, too. I wish I had more funds for this sale- I think I will want a lot of the new fall colors.

    Oh man! The NARS kit has my name on it. As well as the jumbo Kiehl’s Creme de Corps. And the Laura Mercier. Well, the Clarisonic in the ikat pattern is pretty cute….AND useful. Hmm…guess I have my eye on a LOT!
