The Lipstick League – Week of 10.30.17
Question of the Week: What does your ideal mascara do, and which one comes close to delivering it?
EauMG’s Answer: My lashes are pitiful. I have thick, very short, very straight lashes. Basically, I want a mascara that can do it all. But, mascaras are like people. They can’t do it all. I realize this. That’s why my history with mascara has been full of compromises. Saying that, there are some formulas that I like. In general, I don’t prefer
I think Pacifica makes great fragrances for the money. For years I’ve been using their perfumes and bath/body products. They have expanded the brand over the years to include cruelty-free cosmetics and facial skincare. I haven’t tried their makeup until now!

Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia isn’t the best gardenia perfume out there. But, hey, can you think of any other gardenia that retails for less than $10?
Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia is simple. It’s a surprisingly strong, heady white floral (jasmine/gardenia) with a leafy green crispness that gives a nice airiness. I mainly get jasmine/tuberose with this fragrance that could verge on mothballs. Tahitian Gardenia doesn’t wear very sweet on me. I don’t pick up any coconut or tiare like one would expect with a name like… Continue reading | 1 Comment
