The Lipstick League – week of 8.27.12

Question of the Week: – What compelled you to start a beauty blog?

EauMG’s Answer: I’ll try to answer this question quickly. It was 2008. I had stopped freelancing, I was about to move across the country to work in a school district full-time. I had worked my first year as a “professional” in a job that was so not glamorous (later left the job altogether because it was not “me”). I missed talking about perfume. I missed talking about makeup. There was a void. So, I started EauMG and honestly, expected for no one to ever read it, ever. I didn’t feel like at the time anyone that was under 25 and female was talking about or reviewing fragrances. So, yeah, I started EauMG. Thank you so much for reading it.

Gouldylox Reviews – I shouldn’t be surprised by how much I’m enjoying Makeup Geek’s eyeshadows, but I can’t get enough of the subtle pop of color in the form of mythical creatures

Lipglossiping – muses over iconic British store Liberty’s foray into the world of bodycare.

Nouveau Cheap – is no longer an Inglot virgin! She finally broke down and purchased some eyeshadows, but did they actually live up to the hype? Come find out.

Pink Sith – manages to work five Eric Carmen songs into her review of the Armani Eyes To Kill Intense Eyeshadow # 27. That’s gotta be some kind of record.

Prime Beauty – takes a look at the new permanent lip collection from Laura Mercier.  Smooth Créme Lip Colour debuts with 18 natural, semi-lustrous shades!

Phyrra – says OCC Nylon Lip Tar is very flattering on her. She compares it to several other bright lipsticks.

we heart this – the coverage of a lipstick, the feel of the balm, the fabulosity of none other; we’ve got swatches of all 16 Too Faced La Crème Lip Creams.

Beauty Junkies Unite – Become enamoured with the worldly colors from the MAC Styleseeker Collectionafter this review & swatches!

Clumps of Mascara – loves teddy bears. But she loves Too Faced’s Teddy Bear Hair Professional Brush Set even more. These are soem beautifully durable makeup brushes!

EauMG – Read Victoria’s B-A-N-A-N-A-S review of LUSH Ladyboy EDP!

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Gouldylox – My favorite blog right now is Hair Romance, the Australia-based hair blog about falling in love with your hair. Christina not only tells you which products are working, but shows you with beautiful photography exactly how to re-create them on your own.
