EauMG’s 2013 Holiday Gift Guide for Vintage Beauties

Louise Brooks

This Holiday Gift Guide for Vintage Beauties is for the glamorous types that would be happy to have seamed stockings in their stocking. This is one of my favorite gift guides to create as I’d rather be living in a Jean Harlow style boudoir wearing a floor length dressing gown and applying my lashes than doing whatever it is that I do all day.

Malle Lipstick Rose EDP Perfume Review

Malle Lipstick Rose perfume

Rose Week 2013

I admit that I disregarded Malle Lipstick Rose as another fine fragrance trying to smell like a functional fragrance to cash in on some people’s nostalgia: This smells like my mother circa 1961.

Vilma Banky

Hello. I’m Victoria. I use foam rollers. I wear false eyelashes and red lipstick. I’d never buy a store bought pie or pre-made pie dough. I have mastered the art of trellised top pies. I haven’t mastered the art of half moon manicures. I can tell if it’s real Bakelite from the smell. I can’t stand New Hollywood. I wish that my uniform was a floor length silk dressing gown with matching marabou slippers.  I also wish that everything on this gift guide was mine. And I’m sure if… Continue reading | 18 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:
