The Lipstick League – week of 10.9.17
Question of the Week: Mascara, lipstick, eye shadow: you have to eliminate one from your routine FOREVER. Which would you chose?
EauMG’s Answer: Why are you guys so cruel?! After thinking about this for too long, I’m going to say mascara. But, hear me out! I have short, stumpy lashes so mascara makes a difference.

For nostalgic reasons, I’d have to say Olay. Both brands have been around for a long time and both brands actually have great products. I also love Estee Lauder. For new
Yesterday I reviewed Amouage Figment Woman, which is a traditionally “pretty” white floral perfume. From the copy and from my experience with Figment Woman, I expected Amouage Figment Man to be a very nice woodsy fragrance.¹ Never judge a fragrance by its bottle or its copy!
