The Lipstick League – week of 9.18.17

Question of the Week: What is your HG eyeshadow palette from the drugstore?

EauMG’s Answer: There are actually many drugstore palettes that I like. For neutrals, I think L’Oreal Colour Riche La Palette Nude 1 is good (it’s like Lancôme at a cheap price). I also love Makeup Revolution Ultra Eye Contour Light & Shade Palette. It’s all matte. Another great matte is e.l.f. Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette

My Epic Hungary Haul – Summer 2017

Budapest

In case you didn’t know, last month I went to Budapest on a vacation. We had a great time looking at architecture and drinking wine. But, you know me. I’m obsessed with skincare (and everything else). So, of course I took the time to check out drugstores and beauty stores. I’m embarrassed to even post what I bought because I went crazy.

Here’s some things that have launched or will be launching soon… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Mexico is a diverse place and the Yucatán is its own special, isolated pocket due to its geographic location. Mérida has a rich Mayan heritage and the town is filled with Catholic cathedrals and colonial homes. It’s s such an interesting city with a resilient culture. It’s a wonderful place and we plan on returning soon.

I’d love to talk more about my trip but for the sake of this blog, I’ll keep it focused on beauty.

I stayed in San Juan in Centró, a historical… Continue reading | 10 Comments

The Lipstick League – week of 2.22.16

Question of the Week: If you had to pick your favorite type of eyeshadow, would it be pressed, loose, cream, liquid, pencil, or…?

EauMG’s Answer: This is a difficult one to answer. For the most part, I love pressed eyeshadows because they’re easy to use and so blendable. I find that the loose ones require too much skill for me in the mornings. However, I’m a huge fan of cream shadows, especially those in
