I was very good in September and didn’t buy anything which meant that I had to go on a spree in October. I bought some luxurious things like a Chanel Anti-Pollution Cleansing Oil and some newly launched makeup like the Shiseido Kajal Ink Pencil in Rose Pagoda and Christian Louboutin Tape à l’Oiel in Daria.

The Lipstick League – week of 5.30.17
Question of the Week: Do you use body scrubs? If so, how often and what are some of your favorites?
EauMG’s Answer: I absolutely love body scrubs! I tend to prefer sugar-based over salt-based. My favorite has to be by Tree Hut. I prefer their nutty, warm scents over their fruity ones.
