The Lipstick League – Week of 2.5.18 – Gifts with Purchase

The Lipstick League – week of 2.5.18

Question of the Week: Have you ever bought a product JUST because you want the GWP (gift with purchase?)

EauMG’s Answer: Ugh, yes. I’m terrible like that. In fact, I’m trying to eliminate this behavior from my life and stick to a list. If it’s on the list and just so happens to have a GWP, that’s great. But, if not, I should leave it be. It’s easier said than done. 

Also, here’s a reminder that annual Rose Week is… Continue reading

The Lipstick League – week of 1.29.18

Question of the Week: What part of your beauty collection needs purged the most?

EauMG’s Answer: Honestly, all of it! I have been going through things (as I mentioned here). It’s a slow process but I’m making improvements. I’m throwing out old/outdated things, separating a pile of things to donate/give away and “shopping my stash”.

EauMG’s 2017 Empties & Thoughts

2017 Empties

Empties are posts that I do where I tally the amount of beauty products that I empty. It also is something that I do that makes me feel like a total hoarder (empty bottles accumulate until the end of a month for a “photo shoot”), but hey, bloggers are weird people. There’s a few reasons why I’m so consistent with my Empties post. Firstly, it helps me keep up with what I’m actually using. I can quickly reference and see if something was a hit/miss for… Continue reading | 14 Comments

EauPEN Thread – Holiday Gifts

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
