The Lipstick League – week of 2.5.18

Question of the Week: Have you ever bought a product JUST because you want the GWP (gift with purchase?)

Valentine's Day 2015

Next week is Valentine’s and this guide is a little later than I wanted it to be, but hey, like any of us celebrate Valentine’s Day, right? 😉 We don’t but it does combine so many things that I love such as roses, chocolate and champagne.
