The Lipstick League – Week of 4.27.15

Question of the Week: Name a color cosmetic that you love to wear year-around, regardless of the season.

EauMG’s 2015 Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day Gift Guide

I usually love creating gift guides but I’m going to tell you that putting together a Mother’s Day one is my least favorites.

The Lipstick League – Week of 4.20.15

Question of the Week: What foundation are you reaching for the most right now?

EauMG’s Answer: Good timing Lipstick League! I need a foundation upgrade. I’m currently using Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation, which I like but I’m ready for something different. I’m very tempted  by the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops since they can be mixed with any skin product. I’m going to need
