The Lipstick League – Week of 11/13/17

Question of the Week: If beauty products were like Thanksgiving dinner, what’s your gravy? (The product you use with/over EVERYTHING.)

EauMG’s Answer: Lol. I laugh because I’m not really into gravy at all…a rarity for a Southerner with Louisiana Creole roots (AKA a gravy obsessed family who take major pride in their sauce abilities). I will eat rice and gravy. And it wasn’t until adulthood that I started to appreciate white, brown and Cajun-style red-eye gravies. Anyway, what were we


Sase Skincare by Fiafini – Two Step Skincare Routine

Sase Skincare

Sasē Skincare by Fiafini is a line that focuses on “half the steps, twice the results” with multi-purpose skincare products. Overall, the line is highly simplified and currently contains 2 products that are supposed to the job of 7 products.

Weekly Cheap Secret: Suave Conditioner as a Shaving Lotion

Suave Coconut Conditioner

Weekly Cheap Secret:

When I first got Frink the Frug, I was unhappy with all of the dog shampoos that I tried. He still had a not so adorable puppy odor and got flaky. Desperate and tired of buying $10+ pup shampoo, I bought a bottle of Suave Naturals Conditioner in Tropical Coconut. My plan was to use this on his coat as a conditioner, my own testing on animals.
