The Lipstick League – week of 8.5.13

Question of the Week – Have you ever had your makeup done by a professional makeup artist? If so, tell us a bit about the experience(s).

EauMG’s Answer – Yes, one time I did. It was for a commercial. I really don’t have any glamorous story tell. It was just powder and stuff. All of the other times in my life, I have done my own makeup (wedding, prom, stage performances, etc.). Well, I have friends that are professional makeup artists that have “played” with my makeup but I’m not counting those experiences. Those were more about friendship than getting ready for an event. 

My Beauty Bunny – They say living well is the best revenge – and your nails will be living in style when painted with a polish from NCLA’s Sweet Revenge Collection. Come take a peek!

Nouveau Cheap – Drugstore polishes that look like Vintage Leather on the nail? Yep, and they’re from Maybelline!

Pink Sith – Needs more nail polish like a squirrel needs a can opener, but that didn’t stop her from picking up the latest Urban Decay Nail Polishes in Addiction and Vice.

Prime Beauty – was gobsmacked when she had the opportunity to have her hair styled by big-time British celebrity hairdresser Mark Hill. Mark has crossed the pond and launched his salon professional line in Walgreen’s!

Phyrra – shares the best CC Cream with you; It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical SPF 50 CC Cream. And it comes in 5 shades!

Vampy Varnish – shows you the latest and greatest Zoya collection called Cashmeres and Satins for fall 2013.

we heart this – loved the Benefit The Rich is Back palette at $34, but did you know it was just marked down to $24? It’s a beautiful deal!

Beauty Junkies Unite – See which lippies were hits, and those that were misses in the new MAC So Supreme Lipcolor Collection!

Clumps of Mascara – is hosting a giveaway where you could possibly win a $125 Visa gift card. Sounds pretty groovy, huh?

EauMG – is kicking it old-school with this review of an iconic 1980’s fragrance, Jessica McClintock.

Gouldylox Reviews – Want to make your eyes pop? Try this new mascara from Make Up For Ever!

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by My Beauty Bunny – We are constantly in awe of the tips, tricks and tutorials shared by the lovely Christina at Hair Romance. Like this Easy Braided Updo; the perfect solution for any bad hair day!

  1. Just had my make up done professionally on Thursday, and EVERY time I do it, I regret it. I could have done twice as good of a job in half the time! I ended up having to redo the entire thing in the car on the way to my event!! When preparing for a big event it feels like a relaxing treat to have your make up done, but PLEASE REMIND me next time, JUST SAY NO!!

    1. Don’t do it again!
      In theory it does sound nice but I find that if you already wear makeup (almost) daily, that nobody does your makeup better than yourself. We know our face and we know what works.
