The Lipstick League – week of 5.7.18

Happy Mother’s Day!

Question of the Week: What’s the most expensive eye shadow palette you own, and is it worth it?

EauMG’s Answer: Good question. There are many expensive eyeshadow palettes that I’d like to own (like the one from Pat McGrath). However, I love makeup but I’m not super into eyeshadow palettes.

Question of the Week: When you make a “blind purchase” (buy a beauty product without ever having seen it in person), how important is it to you to read reviews first? Have you ever made a blind purchase without reading a single review?

EauMG’s Answer: For me, it’s really important for me to read reviews or if it is a color product, to look at swatches online. I’ve found myself in the makeup aisles of the drugstore looking
