The Lipstick League – week of 5.28.18

Question of the Week: What do you think of the metallic lip trend? Tell us your faves!

EauMG’s Answer: I’m a self-diagnosed lipstick addict. Because of this, I love all lip trends. New metallics look less 1980’s or 90’s Pamela Anderson because of their matte finish.

The Lipstick League – 11/27/17

Question of the Week: If you got to design a makeup collection, what would be the signature piece?

EauMG’s Answer: What a fun question! Obviously with my blog, a perfume seems like a natural addition. However, we’re talking about makeup. It would definitely be a lip product since I’m a lip product fiend. It would definitely be a bullet lipstick with a nice satin finish. Shades, now that is difficult.

It gives us a reason to talk about what’s new without actually participating in this makeup economy of “BUT THIS LIMITED EDITION THING!”. Here’s my version, sans video.

A Top 10 Rose Gold Lipsticks Guide

Helena Rubinstein Pink Champagne

For the past few years rose gold has really had a moment. I’ve seen some people online say they are sick of it. But, I think that’s like saying one is sick of gold or silver. Rose gold is merely a neutral color that’s popular for a reason – it’s flattering. It’s the sort of shade that seems to work on a variety of complexions. It’s like wearing a soft candlelit glow. It’s the sort of shade that reminds me of champagne, rosé and burning embers. Rose… Continue reading | 8 Comments
