The Lipstick League – week of 9.18.17

Question of the Week: What is your HG eyeshadow palette from the drugstore?

EauMG’s Answer: There are actually many drugstore palettes that I like. For neutrals, I think L’Oreal Colour Riche La Palette Nude 1 is good (it’s like Lancôme at a cheap price). I also love Makeup Revolution Ultra Eye Contour Light & Shade Palette. It’s all matte. Another great matte is e.l.f. Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette. For color pay-off, I love Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collections.  I don’t know if these count as drugstore but they aren’t high-end, but I love NYX Perfect Filter in Rustic Antique. It’s warm and wonderful. For cool shades, I love Essence Eyeshadow Palette in All About Roses (it’s all I’ve worn this past week). I say this a lot to my friends that love makeup, it’s not difficult to get quality makeup at a low price anymore. The formulas have matured. Back in the day, you were really settling but now drugstore formulas are creamy, buttery and pigmented. It’s a great time to be alive. 

EauMG – I went to Budapest and here’s all the beauty products I bought. I need to go on a No-Buy now…

fanserviced-b – I tried Glossier’s newish Wowder Duo and was impressed by the packaging, but wish it didn’t give my skin a red cast or cystic acne spots.

Gouldylox – With so many new launches on the horizon, do you really need the new #IWantKandee collection from Too Faced?

My Beauty Bunny – says if you’re going to buy toothpaste (and hopefully you do…), why not buy cruelty free toothpaste that WHITENS?

Phyrra – I share my favorite Daytime Makeup Tutorial. It makes blue and green eyes pop!

Prime Beauty – The newest innovation in skincare is probiotics, but do they actually work? LaFlore Skincare is a brand new skincare brand that harnesses the power of probiotics in their simple 3-Step Skincare System; read about my results!

we heart this – How much would you love us if we told you there was a skincare product that you could add to your existing favorites to actively brighten your skin? How about if we added that it’s only about 30 bucks? Meet YBF Brightening Concentrate…

Beauty Junkies Unite – We all love instant gratification, especially when it comes to beauty products! That’s why Amber spent over a month testing facial masks to find six that deliver immediate results, for every skin concern. Check them out here.

Blushing Noir – Brooke tried out some products from Fenty Beauty by Rihanna and is here to let you know which products worked the best on her SUPER OILY skin and which ones were a total fail.
