The Lipstick League – Week of 6.30.14

Question of the Week: Your house has been robbed–don’t worry everyone is safe–but your beauty stash has been raided. What’s the ONE product you hope has not been stolen?

EauMG’s Answer: A perfume made just for me by an awesome perfumer. I’m going to leave it mysterious because everyone needs a secret ;) Especially, a secret perfume.

True story. My makeup bag was stolen from my apartment in college. All I can say is that I really hope I helped some ugly spirited person at least look beautiful.

My Beauty Bunny – You may have heard China recently changed its rules on cosmetics animal testing. But what exactly does the rule change mean for cruelty-free beauty lovers? We’ve got the facts!

Nouveau CheapOne product that functions as moisturizer, face primer AND sunscreen? Surely that’s too good to be true…or is it?

Prime Beauty – celebrates our nation’s birthday and Eddie’s with a giveaway from Eddie Funkhouser!

Phyrra – shares her June Beauty Favorites! Do you love any of these?

Clumps of Mascara – tried very hard to ignore it. In fact, it looked pretty similar to the original. But she was weak and so LORAC’s Pro 2 palette was purchased and it is looooved!

EauMG – Victoria’s is in LOVE with this indie bath and body line’s bubbling, foamy sugar scrubs. Oh, and they smell DIVINE.

  1. My nana had her make-up bag stolen at a dance in the 40’s with all her new Avon make-up that she only got to put on that night. This story has stayed with me because I remember being horrified because it seems so unhygienic. There was an interesting story I read in a mag about which tester lipsticks get stolen the most from MAC counters. TESTER. LIPSTICKS. EW.

    OT: Every time I see Cleo-style hair, I want to get bangs. I know I’ll regret it but I can’t help wanting them. Grrr
    Great ad! I want everything in it!

    • Oh, poor nana! Exactly, how gross is that??? That’s all I could think about (and it’s me! and I think I’m clean!). I don’t even use testers at stores and someone is going to steal my mascara, lipstick, etc. Soooo gross.

      I’ve grown out my bangs…and I still want bangs. I can’t look at Cleo-hair without wanting it. The look is really pretty in this ad – the peach lip, khaki eyeshadow and liner. They could easily sell it to us today!
