The Lipstick League – week of 4.18.17

Question of the Week: Are you a depotter, or do you prefer to keep your products in their original packaging?

EauMG’s Answer: I like the idea of depotting if it is something that will help you use things in your stash. However, I never do it. It takes too much of my time. I typically destroy them because I lack the patience. I also do not like messing up the packaging. I’m not a pro makeup artist. I’m a hobbyist. I don’t really have the need to have all my stuff in one palette. To answer the question – no.

EauMG – It’s Perfume Playoffs! I’ve put my favorite cherry blossom perfumes into competition to see which one comes out the champion.

fanserviced-b – I’m a big fan of Sunday Riley’s $105-per-ounce Good Genes, but I don’t love the price, so I tested 16 other lactic acids in hopes of finding a dupe.

Gouldylox – This new Wonder Brush and Blush from It Cosmetics seem too good to be true. Can the brush actually deliver? I’ve tested it and I have thoughts. Let’s discuss!

My Beauty Bunny – Urban Decay’s brand new Rehab Makeup Prep line is designed to prep your face for makeup AND cleanse it at the end of the day! I’m letting you know if I think the collection is a hit or a miss.

Nouveau Cheap – NYX is coming to Walgreens! Why is this exciting? I break it all down for you here.

Phyrra – I’ve got everything you need to know about What’s New in Cruelty Free Makeup!

Prime Beauty – is reviewing Neutrogena Naturals in celebration of Earth Month. This is green beauty that is affordable and available at the drugstore!

we heart this – Sing it with us: “Bathe like an Egyptian!” Then, check out The Body Shop Almond Milk and Honey Body Care Collection. (Hey, that kinda rhymes.)

Beautygeeks – gets into the geeky formulation details of Riversol, a derm-created line for sensitive skin; here’s how to get a 2-week trial kit for just $3 shipping (CAN/USA)!

Blushing Noir – What if I told you a SMART MIRROR exists & it tells you all about your skin woes as well as the best products to use AND what order to use them in? This is not a drill – you NEED the HiMirror Plus Skincare Analysis Mirror in your life ASAP …and it’s not as expensive as you might think (but I’ll give you a coupon code anyway)!

Clumps of Mascara – I’m late to this but turmeric in skincare is my new favorite thing. And a turmeric scrub? I’m in love!

EauMG is Currently Craving: I’m loving Pinrose’s newest makeover. But, what I love even more is the fragrance Sun Saint. I want to smell like I’ve left all my worries and ran away to a tropical island paradise.
