The Lipstick League – Week of 8.8.11

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 14 - 2011

Question of the Week: – What perfume can bring back memories with just one sniff?

Answer: I bought Mr. L the original Chanel Egoiste when we first met many years ago and although the bottle has long been emptied, I’ve kept it for sly sniffs until I can get my hands on a replacement.  It evokes memories of holidays we took, meals we shared and films we saw when we were newly together.  Such a shame it’s scarcer than hen’s teeth nowadays.  Stupid Platinum version I DON’T WANT YOU!

.

Pink Sith – has swatches of two of the new NARS Night Series Nail Polishes. One conjures memories of a 1980’s rock song and the other, a 1980’s TV show. Find out which is which!

Phyrra – shares a new sensitive skin serum, Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Fruit Seed Oil!

Prime Beauty – has a fabulous Splurge v.s. Steal for us this week. Find out what foundation is a dupe for Napoleon Perdis Advanced Mineral Makeup and cost 4 times less!

we heart this – finds out that Jo Malone candles are as fabulous as their fragrances. Especially these David Hicks designed ones!

Beauty Junkies Unite – What’s British, colorful, and sold exclusively at Sephora in the U.S.? Check out nails inc., which just launched Thursday!

Clumps of Mascara – is absolutely in love with purple lips. Think you could rock ’em?

EauMG – reviews an indie perfume from Arcana that smells like blackberry jam.

Lipglossiping – ditches her beloved black eyeliners for softer greys when she takes a closer look at Estee Lauder’s latest collection!

Nouveau Cheap – shows you the entire Wet n Wild On the Prowl Collection. For a Halloween nail polish collection, this one’s full of the unexpected!

Come on, what about you?  What is your most evocative fragrance?

    I bought Gucci “Flora” to wear for the first time on a Mexican vacation with my hubby. Every time I spritz it on now, I’m back in our room getting ready for a night out….
    And whenever I spray my daughter’s Love’s Baby Soft, I feel 10 again, too :)

  2. Jenn says:

    Oh my gosh. A whiff of Dior Miss Dior Cherie brings back memories to me, too! Amazing how perfume can do that, isn’t it?

  3. definitely Emporio She by Armani. it always reminds me of an amazing week spent in Milan <3.

    David Evans = Eternity for Men, and all these years later my knees STILL go weak whenever I smell it.
