The Lipstick League – week of 5.30.11

Question of the Week: You’re running late and only have time to apply ONE makeup product to your face (after you’ve applied your skincare, of course). What’s it going to be?

EauMG’s Answer: Yikes! Only one? It would have to be concealer. But, if I’m having a “good skin” day or it’s dark outside, I’d have to wear a red lipstick 😉 Hopefully, this would distract from my lack of makeup. And hey, I can use that as blush too!

* The weekend has been amazingly beautiful here in Seattle. Now I remember why I live here and put up with all the crummy weather. I spent the weekend hanging around the house, gardening and grilling. Oh, and purchasing a bottle of the difficult to find, CdG Tar. It was a great week and weekend. I hope you guys had the same.

1940’s era photo of Alexis Smith is from www.fanpix.net. Oh, I had a dress that looked just like hers. I got too fat for it and gave it away to Goodwill. I hope somebody gave it a good home.

  1. My one makeup product would be a lipstick – I cannot go “barelip” for too long, I apply a lip balm even at night. But if I could negotiate some type of a lip balm (without a pigment) into the “skincare” category, I would choose a setting powder as my one product.
