A Cosmetic & Fragrance 2010 Holiday Gift Guide for the Vintage Soul

Holiday 2010 Gift Guide for Vintage inspired gals

Here’s my Holiday 2010 gift guide for the vintage soul. You know, the type of gal that knows how to pin curl and brush them out, wears red lipstick daily, and has a bit of an Old Hollywood complex.  She wishes dressing gowns would à la mode and has always wanted her own boudoir. This gal is a real glamor, vintage at heart. She may have a degree in something boring, wear off-the-rack clothing, and have to clean her own… Continue reading | 8 Comments

NEW: Lulu Beauty Solid Perfumes

Lulu Beauty Solids

Earlier this week I reviewed Seattle based Lulu Beauty perfume roll-on in Starlet. I love that fragrance. Well, if I didn’t think the brand could get any cuter, they’ve launched new solid perfumes! These solids are housed in an adorable golden retro inspired compacts and the blue “cigarette pack” packaging. The fragrances are in a rich natural base of coconut oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, and avocado oil. The new solids are available in these three best-selling fragrances:

More 1920’s Fashion: Get the Makeup Look of Billie Dove

I recently got my hair cut in a bob with bangs. I was going for more of a flapper look but it looks more like a 70’s take on the 20’s.  Or better yet early 90’s Industrial fan. This is cool and I’m happy with it. Every fall I seem to get really inspired by the 20’s and 30’s. Living in a rainforest, literally, I wear lots of hats in the fall/winter. I guess this is why I crave these… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Lulu Beauty Starlet Perfume Oil Review

Lulu Beauty Starlet Perfume

Luly Beauty is a perfume line that fits right in with the “vibe” here at EauMG, “captures the high tone glamour of the 1930s with gorgeously feminine fragrances worthy of a silver screen starlet”. This Seattle based indie perfume line features 5 perfumes, all of them heavy on va-va-voom white florals such as gardenia and jasmine. Each fragrance comes in a small, travel-friendly roller-ball bottle.

Starlet is a va-va-voom white floral. It’s simply gardenia, a soliflore. A pretty, slightly “spicy” gardenia. I wore… Continue reading | 20 Comments

Old Favorite: Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder Review

I love the packaging of Coty Airspun Loose Powder. It is the original packaging and I wish more companies would keep the same look. It gives this product such an adorable retro glamor. It is a cardboard “hatbox” with the cutest powder puffs all over it. The classic burnt orange means that the product has scent and the teal background means that it is fragrance free. Of course, I went for fragrance. The fragrance is a bit old fashioned and I can understand why people would want to go the fragrance free route… Continue reading
