The Lipstick League – week of 11.9.15
Question of the Week: When you want to truly pamper yourself (as we all should do from time to time!), which products do you reach for?
EauMG’s Answer: This is a fun question and one that I like thinking about because well, I’m indulgent. So, here’s what I use. Wearing a favorite fragrance is the quickest and easiest way to pamper. I also like burning “fancy candles” while wearing a sheet mask and reading something I want to read. I typically like to do this after bathing using a fancy soap (like Hermès) or a shower gel (which doesn’t always have to be expensive. I like stuff like Caress to Frederic Malle). I like to follow up with a fancy body product like an oil (Maile Organics or Palmer’s), body cream (like the ones by Haus of Gloi) and sometimes dusting powder like Estee Lauder Youth Dew. I also like to take baths and one of my favorite products is LUSH Rose Jam Bubbleron. I also love the Youth Dew Bath Oil. When it comes to makeup, I like to use my Caron Powder Puff and Armani lipsticks. I mean, right now I’m drinking Guerlain Shalimar tea and burning an Aura candle while I’m slathered in French body oil while wearing silk pajamas. I’ve got this pampering thing down.
