The Lipstick League – week of 1.12.15

Question of the Week: What’s your current favorite top coat and how long have you been using it for your manicures?

EauMG’s Answer: For the past few years, I’ve been using Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat. It’s cheap and works well. I like that it’s glossy and quick drying. I prefer it over Seche Vite (which I found would “shrink” my polishes)

Comme des Garcons x Pharrell Williams Girl EDP Perfume Review

CdG and Pharrell Williams Girl

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

The launching of Girl was a big deal for the “mainstream world” for a few reasons:

Reason 1- The the celeb in this case had enough sense to not only align themselves with a designer, but a designer line that produces a lot of good, trendy perfumes. AND a perfume that crosses over into mainstream/designer and niche. This makes folks take this perfume “more seriously”. This also makes it something that will be sold at stores… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Ramon Monegal Ambra di Luna EDP Perfume Review

Ramon Monegal Ambra di Luna EDP

Ramon Monegal Ambra di Luna is skanky amber that has a nostalgic feel. It has a nostalgic feel, like finding your grandmother’s textiles in an old trunk that hasn’t been opened in years – a mix of woods, sweetness and mothballs. It’s a reminder of a time you never lived and a time that you seldom heard discussed. It’s a scent of contrast. Like grasping a tiny, faded rose print dress from a big, dark steamer trunk.

Ambra di Luna opens with white floral mothballs and… Continue reading

Olympic Orchids California Chocolate EDP Perfume Review

Olympic Orchids California Chocolate

With so many desserts based oround the orange/chocolate theme, one would expect to see more gourmand perfumes centered around this duo. It seems like a “natural” pairing. Olympic Orchids California Chocolate is an orange and chocolate perfume, but it’s not like some chocolate bar flavored with orange. California Chocolate is like being outside on a sunny, mild day hiding under the shade of a blossoming orange tree, sharing a bar of chocolate with someone that you really like.

California Chocolate smells like citrus chocolate. It opens with a… Continue reading | 4 Comments
