The Lipstick League – week of 5.13.13

We’d also like to take a moment to congratulate our very own Phyrra for five years of beauty blogging! To commemorate the event, she’s hosting a mega-givewaway here that you don’t want to miss.

Question of the Week – Tell us about a funny makeup/beauty mistake you have made…or care to admit to?

EauMG’s Answer – There have been too many times where I realize once I get home that I’ve been walking around with one false eyelash still attached. And some may call this a big mistake but I never will…lip liner. I flip’n love lip liner even the visible unnatural looking stuff. I know this makes me lose all makeup cred but I don’t care. And I’ll admit that back in the day (party like it’s 1999, ya’ll)  I’d wear lip liner darker than my brows and pair it with a nude lipstick and top with gloss. I was drag-tastic.

My Beauty Bunny – has a fabulous guest post from the Lipstick League’s Clumps of Mascara sharing the 5 Best Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands for Women of Color. Trust us, ladies of every complexion will love these colorful choices!

Nouveau Cheap – the best multi-tasker to come out this year is also limited edition. Here’s why you need the new Milani Shadow Eyez in Almond Cream (but hurry before it’s gone).

Prime Beauty – takes a look at the Lancôme Summer 2013 Color Design Eye Show Palette. The colors are so summery you’ll want to dive right in, PLUS she has a Lancôme giveaway to give your skin a luminous summer glow!

Phyrra – shows off the new Makeup Geek Pigments! Which shade will you fall for?

we heart this – presents a drugstore eyelid primer that’s WAY better than pulling a rabbit out of hat! It’s L’Oreal Magic De-Crease.

Beauty Junkies Unite – Take off for your summer vacation early with the review & swatches for the brand new Essie Resort Collection for 2013. These new nail hues are bright & fun!

Clumps of Mascara – adores the brand Simple and their awesome skincare products. Got sensitive skin? You HAVE to try this drugstore brand out.

EauMG – Here’s a video review of one of Victoria’s favorite classic perfumes for spring/summer, Chanel Cristalle.

Gouldylox Reviews – Did a temporary color stain your hair? If you aren’t up for the pastel trend, here’s how to remove the unwanted color.

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by My Beauty Bunny – Did your spring cleaning include a thorough washing of your makeup tools? If not, Kristie of Blushing Basics has the details on tackling this important task: How To Clean & Sanitize your Makeup & Makeup Brushes.

  1. I guess we can lose our makeup cred together because I love lip liner too and I’ll admit there was a time when I rocked some Barbie doll blue eye shadow and liner. I was young and stupid so I think I’ll be forgiven.

    1. Hey, it’s functional too! I guess what bothers me is how can one go around making fun of drawn on lips when what is in style with the young’uns right now is drawing a big black circle around your eyes with eyeliner. I mean, that will be “dated” too.

      You’re forgiven 🙂 So yesterday I was out and about and this girl was sporting Barbie blue eyeshadow. I was shocked because it looked good. Of course, she is over a decade younger than me and our complexions are nothing alike so I couldn’t do that. But, that girl should continue doing that.

    1. I think it helps. They even make clear ones. And a good neutral isn’t too difficult to find. I really like Rimmel 1000 Kisses in Natural. Cheap and works.

      If I ever wear liner on my bottom lashes, my husband says I have “crazy eyes”. Or “crazy mean eyes”. Maybe I can use this to my advantage like those moths with big “eyes” on their wings to intimidate predators 😉
