The Lipstick League – week of 10.27.14
Question of the Week: What is your favorite season when it comes to new beauty collections?
EauMG’s Answer: I love autumn and holiday collections. I like autumn because the colors are usually darker and I like holiday because of the packaging. I typically always hate spring because pastels look stupid on me. And summer collections are usually bad for me as well. They’re always like turquoise eyeshadow and tons of bronzer.

I absolutely love Senna Cosmetics fall/winter 2010 aesthetic. It totally fits in with the vibe here at EauMG. Every fall I crave Marcel waves and vintage glamour with a slightly gothic take.

Have they forgotten that this trend setter has her… Continue reading | 2 Comments

EYES: There’s the Masquerade Eye Shadow Palette that retails for $35. This palette contains 9 powder eyeshadows. The cool thing about this palette is that the 3 colors in each row coordinate with each other taking the “fuss” out of pairing colors. Colors include: matte peach, shimmery eggplant, perfect matte taupe, khaki with gold shimmer, pale honey gold shimmer, bronze shimmer, metallic muted purple, and twinkling navy
To be honest, I think the only reason that I like this summer collection is because of the packaging. It’s a “print” that is found throughout my home decor. (Think Thomaspaul creepy sealife prints found on pillows, etc. and antique sealife prints). The motifs are the ones featured on the model’s ill-fitting swimsuit. The colors aren’t anything new. In fact, many are the same colors MAC has all year but in snazzy summer packaging.
The collection describes itself as such: “The seaside has a kind of golden, sexy alchemy we’re
