EauMG’s 2018 Holiday Gift Guide for Vintage Beauties

Janet Blair Christmas

I apologize for posting my gift guides so late this year. I’m busy and I keep telling myself better late than never.  I know that I mainly make these guides for myself so my thought is that it doesn’t matter when I post these. These are merely reminders of the sort of things I want to buy myself. 

Here’s my annual holiday gift guide for glamorous types that would be happy to have back-seamed stockings in their stocking! This is the gift guide for those that appreciate the timeless elegance of red lipstick, perfectly set… Continue reading | 3 Comments

EauMG’s September 2018 Empties

Yankees game 2018

I can’t believe it but I went through the month without buying any beauty-related products. Can you believe it? Because I barely can. I was faced with many temptations, but I stayed strong.

A new store opened… Continue reading | 10 Comments

I had been looking for a gross terracotta/gourd lip gloss and this is perfect. I also could not resist that the LORAC Mega Pro 4 Eyeshadow Palette was 40% so I picked it up.

My beauty gifts were abundant. I received some Juvia’s palettes, two Jouer lip sets, Malle Iris Hand

Chanel No. 5 1971
Did you receive any smelly things/perfume as gifts over the holidays? If so, what? If not, is there anything you want to treat yourself to?
I didn’t really get any perfume but I did get two perfume-y items from my Vintage Beauty Gift Guide. Apparently David read that post and gave me the Chanel No. 5 Fragments d’Or and Malle Iris Hand Cream. The bottle of this is so much bigger than I expected (8.4 oz). It’s actually a very… Continue reading | 16 Comments
