The Lipstick League – Week of 9/8/14

The Lipstick League – week of 9.8.14

Question of the Week: When a beauty product is labeled “Limited Edition” (LE), are you more inclined to purchase it?

EauMG’s Answer: Not really. That rarely “works” on me. When it does, it’s because it’s something that I find really special or I love the packaging (i.e. Guerlain Holiday Collections). But, in those causes I’m buying because I like them or find them special, not because they are LE.

Tocca Simone EDP Perfume Review

Tocca Simone

Tocca Simone is marketed as a “tomboy” fragrance…whatever. It’s a reason for them to mention surf and sea in copy without going out and creating an overtly “beachy” fragrance.

Simone is fruity. It opens as a familiar apple, citrus and creamy amber, reminding me of Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue for Her but with an addition of honeydew melon. This opening is tart, crisp and fruity. The heart is a bouquet of abstract florals and crisp apple slices. Simone dries down to a “mush of… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Jul et Mad Aqua Sextius

Jul et Mad is a perfume brand founded by a young married couple. The “themes” of the perfume deal with romance and love. Aqua Sextius is the newest perfume from the line and it’s inspired by Aix-en-Provence as an autobiographical fragrance. This is where the couple were wed and where they reside. This place is known as “The City of 100 Fountains”. You can pick this up in Aqua Sextius. This perfume is a mineral, green aquatic floral.
