The Lipstick League – week of 7.24.17

Question of the Week: Sephora VIP Rouge members were just given a $20 off $100 coupon…fess up, what did you buy?

EauMG’s Answer: GASP! I’m not a Sephora VIP Rouge member, so I didn’t get a coupon and I haven’t bought anything from Sephora. What about you? Did you buy anything?

Question of the Week: How many makeup products do you use for an everyday face?

EauMG’s Answer: You know, I’ve never counted. I actually think it would shock me. After being asked, I tried to keep dibs. Most days I use the following: concealer, finishing/brightening powder, foundation (not most days), highlighter, brow pencil or pomade, clear brow gel, eye makeup primer, at least 2 eyeshadows, most days I use eyeliner, mascara, blush, taupe powder to contour

Question of the Week: Name a color cosmetic that you love to wear year-around, regardless of the season.

EauMG’s Answer: I wear a lot of my color cosmetics year round. For example, red and neutral lipsticks. I’d say that some of my favorite year-round shades would include Alima Pure Soft Matte Blush in Mimosa, a perfect shade for “everyday” wear for me, any red or neutral lip products and navy eyeliner like Avon Glimmersticks

Question of the Week: False Lashes: Love ‘em or leave ‘em?

EauMG’s Answer: It’s funny because I used to wear false lashes daily and now I’m like “whatever”. I go through phases like that. I have wore them maybe once in the past year. I really do like the look and they really aren’t difficult to apply, but I’m sort of in a “minimalist” phase right now and I actually like less “dramatic” eye makeup at this time.

Histoires de Parfums 1969 EDP Perfume Review

Histoires de Parfums 1969

Histoires de Parfums 1969 is a perfume inspired by “an erotic year…this perfume represents the sexual revolution and evokes an intense sensuality, accentuated by white musk and intense chocolate.” Apparently, white musk and chocolate are emblems of sexual revolution…or something. With a name like 1969, I think we all expect patchouli, which are we given in this perfume. Other than patchouli, I have no other expectations for this perfume.

1969 opens with peach, so much peach. To me, it’s dried apricots and fresh peaches. Lactonic… Continue reading | 6 Comments
