The Lipstick League – week of 7.30.12

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 7 - 2012

Question of the Week: – What are some of your favorite underrated beauty products (i.e., products not often mentioned in the beauty blogging community)?

Answer: It’s a mouthful but Olay’s Total Effects 7-in-1 Moisturiser & Sensitive Protection SPF15 is making my fussy skin really happy at the moment.  It’s been the only day moisturiser to satisfy a  phase of exagerrated inbalance where I’ve been enjoying a dry, flaky nose combined with super oily cheeks (isn’t it supposed to be the other way around?!).  Also love my Illamasqua brow cake, massive HG and doesn’t get enough blog love.
