The Lipstick League – week of 5.9.16
Question of the Week: Dump your purse! Now name every beauty product you found…
EauMG’s Answer: A sample of the new Prada L’Infusions Oiellet, Yes to Cucumbers SPF 30 Stick (great for SPF touch-ups for hands, ears, etc), Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch SPF 55 (I like that it isn’t greasy and seems to layer well over things I applied in the morning), Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Pact (translucent pressed powder), Armour Lip Gloss in Candy (bubblegum violet lip gloss named after Candy Darling), ColourPop Lippie Stix in Brills (a weird lavender lipstick) and Hurraw! Green Tea Lip Balm. Fun fact, I’m sooo not a bag person. I only started carrying a bag once I moved to the NYC area. I actually pack very light because I hate carrying around too much stuff. With my lipsticks, I switch them out every morning with the color I’m wearing that day. I really should add a hand cream to my bag since I used up what I was carrying. And once it starts heating up, I carry around a deodorant with me and a refreshing spray like Heritage Rosewater Spray. But, alas, I’m not carrying any of that around with me now!

Nouveau Cheap is Currently Craving: Paula’s Choice Resist 1% Retinol Booster. I love the idea that you can add a few drops of this to any of your existing moisturizers or serums for an extra shot of Retinol and antioxidants. I have so many “meh” moisturizers that I’m trying to use up right now–they could really use this extra boost!
