The Lipstick League – week of 9.24.18

Question of the Week: Drugstore vs prestige cosmetics – which is better?

EauMG’s Answer: I don’t think it is an either/or sort of thing! Good (and bad) products exist at all price points. These days drugstore products have really stepped up their game (you can see many examples of this even during this week’s Lipstick League). I have noticed that these days I use a lot of e.l.f. products. I feel like they do the “no makeup-makeup” products better than anyone else. On a daily basis I’m painting my face with a mix of drugstore and prestige cosmetics (but probably about 75% drugstore and 25% prestige now). In general, all makeup has become better formulated so there’s really no excuse to pay more for something that doesn’t perform well. 

Painted Ladies – The good, the bad and the oily. Is the new NYX Cosmetics Can’t Stop Won’t Stop foundation a match for Sheila’s oily skin?

Phyrra – What do you wear to concerts? You’ll love my hair, makeup and Edgy Style Rocker Chic Outfit to see Clutch & SevenDust!

Prime Beauty – tries out the new Milani Pure Passion Eyeshadow Palette. Is it a fantastic drugstore find or fail?

Slashed Beauty – The new Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tints are giving matte liquid lipsticks a run for their money. See swatches and decide which shades to pick up this fall!

Beautygeeks – thinks it’s too early to focus on holiday beauty sets, but is doing it anyway. *shrug*

Blushing Noir – If you’re obsessing over those pricey Natasha Denona eyeshadows but aren’t sure you want to spend the $$$ you’re in luck! The Natasha Denona Mini Star Eyeshadow Palette is now available, but hurry…it’s limited edition!

EauMG – In case you were wondering, this was my most worn perfume of Summer 2018.

My Beauty Bunny – is a bit obsessed with the new Urban Decay Lo Fi Lip Mousse. She’s got a review and swatches of all shades on her blog!

Painted Ladies is Currently Craving: the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, which seems to be universally adored by all those who have tried it. I’m wondering if it will be too much for my normal-to-oily skin, though.
