The Lipstick League – week of 10.2.17

Question of the Week: What’s your favorite CLASSIC skincare brand and your favorite NEW skincare brand?

EauMG’s Answer: Oh, this is a difficult question! There are so many great old and new skincare lines. If I had to go with classic French pharmacy like La Roche-Posay. For nostalgic reasons, I’d have to say Olay. Both brands have been around for a long time and both brands actually have great products. I also love Estee Lauder. For new

Favorite Sunscreens for the Face – 2017 Edition

Alla Nazimova

I wear sunscreen every day. I reapply it if I’m out in the sun. I’ll go out without makeup or without a bra before I go out without sunscreen.

I’ve been wearing sunscreen every day since I was 13 years old. This was a rarity for someone in my age range that grew up in the Deep Tanning Bed South.

Estee Lauder Modern Muse Chic

 

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

When Estee Lauder launched Modern Muse, I was optimistic because I tend to like Estee Lauder perfumes in general. After trying it, I wasn’t really inspired (and isn’t that the entire point of a muse?). I never reviewed it because there wasn’t much to say. Modern Muse was an abstract jasmine.

EauMG’s October 2014 Favorites

Frink the Frug

October, which is usually one of my favorite months, started out rather inspiring. I felt renewed and ready to take on anything. The weather was rather mild and I got outdoors and did stuff.

And then I received terrible news that my grandmother had passed, a week after my visit to Tennessee. She was one of my favorite people, a humorous, sassy ruby-red-lipstick-wearing sort of broad that could cook like no other. She was someone… Continue reading | 27 Comments
