The Lipstick League – week of 8.1.11

Question of the Week: – If you could develop your dream product (à la MAC Bloggers’ Obsessions) what would it be and what line would it be for?

EauMG’s Answer: I really don’t know. I have found all of my “dream” cosmetics. They already exist! I am in love with a discontinued lipstick by Guerlain from 10 years ago. It was a beautiful berry wine with a satin finish. However, it had these lovely super-fine micro gold shimmer. It

1970’s Fashion – Get the Makeup Look of Susan George

Susan George

Here’s one of those “no makeup” 70’s makeup looks. These are a nice change for me. Not all vintage looks are red lipstick or heavy black eyeliner. Here’s what I did to get the look of 70’s sexpot, Susan George:

FACE: Susan’s face makeup is too matte for my tastes, but I’ll forgive it because her skin is flawless. Now I can’t say that for the rest of us; we know that matte foundations and looks are “aging” too. With my fingers… Continue reading | 1 Comment


Van Cleef & Arpels First EDT Perfume Review

Van Cleef & Arpels First is a sparkling adelhydic floral.

Sunkissed 70’s Look: Get The Look of Ali MacGraw

I just want summer to be here! Here’s a very easy to wear sunkissed 70’s look. It’s a nice look, but man, I hate 70’s hair…

FACE: Apply a no-fuss tinted moisturizer to clean skin. I like the formula and color selection of Bobbi Brown SPF Tinted Moisturizer. Dust a natural looking bronzer like Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder all over the face. Apply a little more to the cheeks to use as a blush.

EYES: Brows are thick and very natural. Apply a clear brow… Continue reading | 1 Comment

Avon Candid Perfumed Skin Softener Lotion Review

Weekly Cheap Secret:

I love these little old school highly fragranced body lotions. I hope Avon realizes that this “retro” packaging is what sells these Perfumed Skin Softeners. Well, at least it does for me. I like to have them out, there isn’t a logo, a label. They are just in a “sphere”. They really look nice in a boudoir. They retail for about $5 and are frequently on sale for about 99¢ on Avon’s website.

Candid is a nice fragrance for those that like a classic late 70’s floral… Continue reading
