The Lipstick League – week of 11.2.15

Question of the Week: What are some of your must-haves (so far) from the Holiday 2015 collections?

EauMG’s Answer: I’m trying my best to be good this year. This means that I haven’t really paid attention to any new launches. However, I will probably end up getting the NARS Fantascene Cheek Palette because I want blushes of Despair. I will also buy a bottle of LUSH Rose Jam Shower Gel when it’s
