The Lipstick League – week of 8.27.18
Help a Blogger Out: Sheila from Painted Ladies says “I need a great fast drying top coat that’s budget friendly – help my nails out!”
EauMG’s Answer: I wish I had some suggestions but I don’t 🙁 I love a fast drying top coat. They’re so convenient! But, I found that the ones marketed as “quick dry” cause my fragile nails to become even more dry and cause peeling. Once I eliminated all the “quick dry” products from nail routine, my nails improved. I have no idea why or if I’m crazy but my nails were not happy with that stuff. And gah, I miss that stuff! My nails look better but I do get smudges a lot more now.
Beautygeeks – has Manigeek’s swatches and review of the Essie Fall 2018 nail polish collection. Note: it’s not the same ol’ Essie brush North Americans are used to….
Blushing Noir – I opened up the prettiest palette in The Vault. But I’ve reviewed every single shade and am here to honestly tell you how the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Dark Magic Eyeshadow Palette performs. Without the smoke and mirrors.
EauMG – Not ready for summer to end? No problem! Make it last with any of the scents I included in my Watermelon Perfume Guide.
My Beauty Bunny – I learned that aloe vera is not just for sunburns! Did you know it’s an incredible ingredient for acne and anti-aging? I reviewed a cruelty free brand called Lexli that you’re going to love.
Painted Ladies – It’s pumpkin spice and everything nice in this Fall inspired burnt orange and gold eyeshadow tutorial featuring Juvia’s Place and Sydney Grace Co. eyeshadows.
Prime Beauty – Have you heard of dry brushing? Not only does it help with dry skin, but it has many health benefits when you use the Prana Ionic Brush!
Slashed Beauty – The new Covergirl Melting Pout Liquid Lipsticks at the drugstore are long-lasting and pigmented– see swatches of the entire line, and find out which shades are must-haves vs. must-skips!
we heart this – It’s a lactic acid showdown: Sunday Riley Good Genes vs. The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA. Who will win? Click HERE and see!

Beautygeeks is Currently Craving: Sunday Riley Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid because, after years of glycolic acid to keep her skin clear, she’s finally discovered (and become obsessed with) lactic’s smoothing and hydrating properties.
