The Lipstick League – Week of 6.29.15

Happy 4th of July!

Question of the Week: What was your first “signature scent’? Do you still wear it?

EauMG’s Answer: Being a fumehead, we don’t have a signature scent. We have commitment issues. Thinking back, I don’t think I’ve ever had a signature scent. Even in my more youthful days, I’d wear lots of different things. I will say that I’ve had notes that reoccurred throughout my life – patchouli and rose. Those have been

Rant with EauMG – “Mean Girl” Perfumes


Like many people, I absolutely hated high school. In fact, I absolutely hated ALL school for its conformity and norms. It was not a positive experience for me. And as soon as I got out, I never thought about it. I moved on…or at least I thought I did.

EauMG’s Guide to the Best Smelling Hair Products

Ann Rutherford
