The Lipstick League – Week of 3.14.16

Question of the Week: What lip balm(s) do you reach for when your lips are in dire need of moisture/hydration?

EauMG’s Answer: I’m so boring because my absolute favorite lip treatment in the world is classic Aquaphor. It’s cheap and it works. I’ve also been digging Hurraw! and have a few of those handy. I like those because they are a stick (easier for travel) and I love their flavors. 

Beautygeeks – Wanna re-use that empty cushion-compact? Here’s how to make your own version of BB-cushion foundation – safely.

Beauty Junkies Unite – Amber reviews the latest from Urban Decay — Beached Bronzer. There are two shades, and they’re matte — great for almost anyone!

Clumps of Mascara – So many brands “natural” brands – so little time. I’ve put together a nice little list of a few favorites.

EauMG – Poor unfortunate souls…Victoria is “scenting” Disney Villains!

Gouldylox – This year is going to be my best one yet. To kick it off, I’m opening up about how I’ve lost 90+ pounds since last January!

My Beauty Bunny – This spring we’re all about matching dewy skin with matte lips. So we’re loving the new, super pigmented Too Faced La Matte Color Drenched Matte Lipsticks!

My Newest Addiction – Laura has declared her love for Lanvin! She gushes over Lanvin Eclat de Fleurs and you don’t want to miss it.

Nouveau Cheap – Did you hear that, now through 3/21, Sephora is giving you 5 free samples instead of 3 on all online orders? If you need some ideas for what to buy, here’s a great set for spring (that’s also an excellent value)!

Olive & Ivy – Scared of self tanner coming out too dark or orange on you? This is my favorite for a natural, gradual tan (on the cheap, too)!

Phyrra – I Compare the Chocolate Bon Bons to the Semi-Sweet to the Original Chocolate Bar (and Peanut Butter & Jelly is there too!) Check out the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette Comparison to find the best Chocolate Bar Palette for You!

Prime Beauty – needs a new “do” for spring so she’s checking out Christie Brinkley’s new line of hair pieces called Hair2Wear which includes extensions, pony tails, braided headbands and more. Enter to win your choice of Christie’s collection at Prime Beauty now!

we heart this – we heart this loves this tried and true product so much — they even wrote a “cheer” about it!

  1. Yeah, since your boxwalla review I’ve been using Hurraw lips balms. They’re so good and inexpensive that I bought about four or five for my first purchase then ended up making another purchase like two weeks later for another four. So good for hiding in different purses/jackets because my lips are constantly dry! I love the different scents. My favorites are almond, vatta ( which oddly smells like Hawaiian Punch), sun balm (which I love bc it smells like orange Julius!) and moon balm.

    1. 🙂 So, I have them stowed all sorts of places, like a Hurraw scavenger hunt. By the sofa, there’s Almond which I think may be my favorite. It’s so yummy. I also them by the bed, desk, purse, coat…all the places I need them.

      My lips are sort of finicky about balms; many don’t do anything for my lips. However, the Hurraw ones do. They are gentle and don’t feel waxy (or tug on the lips). I’m hooked on them and will repurchase.
