The Lipstick League – Week of 10.30.17

Question of the Week: What does your ideal mascara do, and which one comes close to delivering it?

I realize this. That’s why my history with mascara has been full of compromises. Saying that, there are some formulas that I like. In general, I don’t prefer

A Top 10 Deep Purple Lipstick Guide

Peter Lindbergh Vogue Italia

 

To celebrate fall, I’ve put together a guide of deep, dark purple lip colors. These sort of purples aren’t for everyone. I wear them because I love the drama.

Question of the Week: What is your HG eyeshadow palette from the drugstore?

EauMG’s Answer: There are actually many drugstore palettes that I like. For neutrals, I think L’Oreal Colour Riche La Palette Nude 1 is good (it’s like Lancôme at a cheap price). I also love Makeup Revolution Ultra Eye Contour Light & Shade Palette. It’s all matte. Another great matte is e.l.f. Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette
