The Lipstick League – week of 10.2.17

Question of the Week: What’s your favorite CLASSIC skincare brand and your favorite NEW skincare brand?

EauMG’s Answer: Oh, this is a difficult question! There are so many great old and new skincare lines. If I had to go with classic French pharmacy like La Roche-Posay.

Question of the Week: What is the most expensive beauty gadget you’ve purchased and was it worth it?

EauMG’s Answer: I’m actually obsessed with gadgets. I’m always on the hunt for something new-to-me and utterly ridiculous. However, I don’t spend very much on gadgets. David bought me a Clarisonic that I never use. He also bought me a creepy af LED mask that I always use (LOVE IT). I use jade rollers that I bought in Hong
