The Lipstick League – week of 5.26.14

Question of the Week: Happy June! Share with us some of your favorite beauty products that you discovered in the first half of 2014.

EauMG’s Answer: How the heck is it June already? In the beauty department my favorite product discovery is Revlon ColorBurst Matte Lip Balm. These are long-wearing, easy to use and the colors are full-coverage! In the fragrance department, my favorite has been a perfume not launched in 2014 but discovered in 2014, Jacomo Silence Eau Sublime. 

Well, I’m back from the Istanbul vacation. This week has been one of those time warp’n fast ones. I’ve been sick with an ear infection and bronchitis (don’t you love flying?). Both dogs have been sick with allergies from their country retreat. Remind me: Why did I decide to get pug-like things with their pug-like sensitives? We’re all feeling better however today we’re moving (only across town, but moving is moving). I did “packing while sick” so I imagine the unpacking process will be amusing. “Honey, where’s the lid to the blender?” “Oh, you know, in the box of Japanese poetry books, solid perfumes and vintage turbans. Duh.” By this time next week, I’ll be Lipstick League’n from the new place 🙂 Probably in chaos but at least the moving will be over!

I’m a big fan of her series, The Cut, where she gives you the scoop on a new product, very quickly, yet thoroughly. Don’t miss this short segment with NudeSTIX. She has me yearning for this new range of versatile pencils in a very bad way.
