The Lipstick League – week of 4.7.11

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 10 - 2011

Time for another ’round the blogosphere’ love in…

What’s a beauty trend that you wish would go away?

Ohhh, controversial!  Hmmm… there’s a few.  I can do a few right?

1.  Gel lipsticks with a hint of colour.  Buy a lip balm.

2.  Accent nails.  Sorry, but they upset my sense of symmetry.

3.  Foaming hair dyes.  Either get it right, or pack it in.

Nouveau Cheap – shows you all six palettes in the Wet n Wild limited edition Dream Weavers collection. Is it cheesy to say these shadows are “out of this world”?

    I don’t understand the point of hint-of-colour lipsticks either, what is the point? Proper level of pigment or lip balm!
