The Lipstick League – week of 16.5.11

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 22 - 2011

Well… assuming we’re all still here and haven’t been “raptured” by the morning, here’s this week’s question of the week!

Which products would you confiscate from your 16 year old self’s makeup bag?!

I wouldn’t have confiscated it but I would have issused a distinct “Woah! There Nelly!” warning regarding my (over)use of black kohl.  I spent a good 2 years of the late 90s looking like a startled Panda.  I definitely would have confiscated all my germ-breeding foundation sponges that never saw even a speck of baby shampoo for many, many months.  Who says teenagers aren’t completely disgusting?

Here’s this week’s Lipstick League!

    Well, considering that I’m still 16, nothing! But I’ll probably regret wearing green and blue lipstick in public eventually, I suppose.

    Yeah, I’m going to say something about the powder. I had this habit of putting more & more powder throughout the day (to combat my oily T-zone) which used to make me look cakey.
