The Lipstick League – week of 2.17.14

Question of the Week: In your opinion, what’s the most overrated beauty product of all time?

EauMG’s Answer: Oh, you know that I love a good rant. Actually, this is sort of tricky to answer. I think as far as “hyped” products, I would have to say Diorshow Mascara. I know it’s super popular and I don’t doubt the fans, but it’s not for me. It’s rather flaky/dry and I’ve had better luck with drugstore stuff. Plus, it

EauMG’s 2012 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Debra Paget Valentine's Day

Shouldn’t I love a day filled with love, chocolate, champagne and lacy things? It’s one of the few things happening in gloomy February and it seems to be about the senses (*cough* among other things). However, I don’t love the holiday. I have a wonderful husband and access to champagne and chocolate every day of the year. I expect to be spoiled. But, this wasn’t always the case.

The shade, Flush, has… Continue reading | 10 Comments

Vampire Venom: New DuWop Twilight Lip Venom Lip Stain

I am not a Twilight fan. Saying that I have only seen the movie and have never read the books. I found the movie very, very dull but felt I had to see it since it was like literally filmed in our backyard. The film was beautiful just for the scenery of the lovely rainforests and coast of Washington (even though it did Rialto beach/LaPush no justice). I just found the story really boring and I felt too old for it. I do consider myself a vampire fan and I am… Continue reading

Windy Look: Bobbi Brown Nautical 2009 Color Collection

Have a thing for sailor pants and deep, dark navy? I do. I always fall for that hokey almost costumey nautical look for summer. It just looks cute and quite pin-up with a bit of prep. I try not to dress like it anymore, since there are actual sailors in town and their uniforms are much cuter than my wardrobe. Anyways, Bobbi Brown’s Nautical Collection is that look that I always pull out every late spring. I love a “fresh” and a no-fuss glow.

This collection was inspired by a… Continue reading
