The Lipstick League – Week of 30.5.11

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 4 - 2011

Let’s have a ’round the blogosphere’ love in…

You’re running late and only have time to apply ONE makeup product to your face (after you’ve applied your skincare, of course). What’s it going to be?

Foundation, foundation and a bit more foundation just to be safe.  I can cope with most things but if my blotchiness and spider veins are on display, I’m pretty grumpy.

Here’s this week’s blog round up…

Vampy Varnish – Asks if a new Benefit mascara can really make people wonder if They’re Real.

we heart this – is bubbly over one of Stila’s new lip glaze shades – Bubble Gum.

Beauty Junkies Unite – wants to give you a fab Summer Prep Kit from Bliss, valued at $144…but you can’t win if you don’t enter!

    Mascara, definitely.
    I think I could just about get away without foundation or bronzer but mascara is a must have!

      First off kudos to you for getting away without foundation! I would definitely reach for the foundation and oh how i love my lashes when they are mascara-fied lol that would definitely have made the top 5 list!

    • Wish I could get away without foundation or some cheek colour… look like I’ve been dug up without!

  2. Vijaya says:

    I think the answer to that question will be foundation/tinted moisturizer for most people. It is for me.

  3. Julianne says:

    Foundation for me as well, before I switched to mineral foundation, I would have said pressed powder as without any powder the oils on my face have free rein to make my hair greasy more quickly.

  4. Wendy says:

    Lipstick – definitely my first choice every time. Preferably a nice, bright colour. At the moment my favourite quick face-brightener is Illamasqua Atomic – a fantastic fuchsia! xxx

  5. Jade says:

    Lipstick. Definitely lipstick. I’m lucky with my skin and my eyelashes I think, but if I have bare lips I feel very naked. xx

  6. Annalise says:

    Definitely mascara. Unless I’m having one of those “wow my skin looks really weird” days, then it’ll have to be foundation! x

  7. Gauri says:

    Lip gloss, definitely.
