The Lipstick League – Week of 3/6/17

Question of the Week: You’re going on a trip. Tell us what beauty products you bring in your carry-on (3oz or less, remember!)

EauMG’s Answer: Great timing. I’m leaving for Charleston tomorrow and currently getting my products together. When I travel, I abbreviate my routine. I also try to pack solids where I can (like Olay Daily Facials, bar soap and solid lotions/cocoa butter sticks, sunscreen sticks). My carry-on includes boring stuff like

Neela Vermeire Creations Pichola EDP Perfume Review

Neela Vermeire Pichola

Neela Vermeire Creations Pichola is a perfume inspired by reflections over Lake Pichola. Pichola is perfume of radiance.

Pichola opens as a spicy orange blossom. It’s like a splash of orange blossom water with sliced lemons. Added into this is a simple syrup composed of sugar and warm spices. I feel like if yellow topaz could have a smell, it would smell like this opening. The heart of Pichola is a floral bouquet of tuberose, a waxy jasmine and lemon-kissed magnolia petals. It’s heady and warmed… Continue reading | 7 Comments

Hiram Green Arbole Arbole EDP Natural Perfume Review

EauMG Feb 2017 Empties

February 2017 Lowbuy Update – I’m such a cheater. I ended up buying a “bundle” of Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipsticks which were Buy 3 for $45. I always gripe about liquid lipsticks but for some reason I wanted the new shades. The swatches were just too darn pretty. FYI – they have done something to the formula. Two of the shades were very comfortable (the new ones) and one of the older colors, Dolce, was very uncomfortable I looked at the ingredients and… Continue reading | 7 Comments

Sase Skincare by Fiafini – Two Step Skincare Routine

Sase Skincare

Sasē Skincare by Fiafini is a line that focuses on “half the steps, twice the results” with multi-purpose skincare products. Overall, the line is highly simplified and currently contains 2 products that are supposed to the job of 7 products.

I’m the weirdo that actually enjoys having an extensive, exhaustive multi-step routine. However, I don’t really think it makes much of a difference. An effective skincare routine really doesn’t need 15 steps!
