The Lipstick League – week of 4.11.16

Question of the Week: Name the beauty item that you are currently reaching for most.

EauMG’s Answer: It’s been a rough month emotionally and I’ve had seasonal allergies on top of all of that, so a good concealer has been what I’ve been reaching for the most. I’m currently obsessed with It Cosmetics By Bye Under Eye Concealer. It’s full-coverage with a satin finish. It lasts all day without creasing! I’m really… Continue reading

Mojo Magique Pixie Rose EDT Perfume Review

Mojo Magique Pixie Rose

I’ve reviewed a few Mojo Magique perfumes in the past. Frankly, I was drawn to the line because they are based in Louisiana. Writing a perfume blog since 2008, I’ll say this, I rarely ever get to review brands based in the South. The majority of niche perfumes come from Europe or NYC.

EauMG’s March 2016 Empties

March '16 Empties

March was such a stressful month for me. Between illnesses and family emergencies, I was left frazzled. So, I did what many of us would do.  I retailed therapy.

I ended up buying Serge Lutens La Vierge de Fer and NARS Tinted Moisturizer for spring (and I love them both).

At Epcot, I bought some French stuff (mainly soaps). And they were on sale. Something was actually on sale at Disney?!

Later in the month, I bought
