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


Pacifica Dream Big Lash Extending Mascara Review

Pacifica Dream Big Mascara

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’s most recent mascara launch is Dream Big Lash Extending Mascara.

The Claims: Pacifica is calling this a “7-in-1” mascara: lash serum, length, lift, volume, conditioning, rich color and 2-in-1 brush. It volumizes with plant fibers and conditions with a peptide… Continue reading | 6 Comments


EauMG’s May 2014 Empties

May 2014 Empties

Many beauty bloggers do this thing called “empties”, where they focus on the products that they used during the month. I admit my reasons for doing this are rather selfish. This is a good way for me to keep track of what I’m actually using and what I actually like.

The Lipstick League – week of 4.14.14

Question of the Week: Do you have a “signature” scent? If so, what is it?

EauMG’s Answer: Bwahahaha. No. I’m too much of a fragrance flirt. I can’t commit. I do have some preferences. For example, I love roses and “cold” floral fragrances. I also have a soft spot for patchouli, fig, osmanthus and aldehydes. Overall, I tend to wear roses, aloof florals, va-va-voom ambers and hippie dippie patchouli scents.

Beauty Best Under $10, fragrance

Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia Solid Perfume Review

Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia perfume

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
