The Lipstick League – Week of 3.9.12

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 8 - 2012

Question of the Week: – Your three favorite haircare lines, name them…

Answer: – I don’t go that crazy for hair products and I’m really not very brand-loyal, but taking a peek in my bathroom cabinet reveals a lot of: Pantene/Osmo (for deep conditioning masques and colour care), The Body Shop for shampoo (Banana and Ice Blue Shampoo – how retro!), and Batiste for styling (dry shampoo ftw!) I suppose they’re my essentials.

 

Lipglossiping – offers a juicy insight into the latest Jo Malone fragrance launch: Blackberry & Bay. Cream scones and tea with that?

Nouveau CheapMy favorite makeup brush cleaner isn’t really a makeup brush cleaner at all (well, technically speaking).

Prime Beauty – loves what WEN Cleansing Conditioner does for her hair but not her wallet, so she’s found an affordable alternative in her latest Splurge vs. Steal!

Phyrra – is ready to battle again in Makeup Wars – Favorite Fall Nail Polish. See the best nail polish for Fall!

we heart this – has partnered with Sephora this week to bring you the colors of the season; Blackest Black, Nouveau Purple and Crimson Velvet. Check out these red lip picks for the prettiest pout around.

Beauty Junkies Unite – Get Amber’s official breakdown of the new READY Foundation SPF 20, a solid mineral foundation from bareMinerals!

Clumps of Mascara – has found the world’s most interesting eyeshadow quad. It’s quite reminiscent of alien aircraft!

Gouldylox Reviews – This lash curler actually fits the shape of my eye, perfectly. I didn’t know what I was missing by settling for my Shu.

 

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Lipglossiping – My favourite post of the week comes in the form of this little number from A Touch of Blusher who has me craving the new Paul & Joe collection like a reformed smoker at a Marlboro convention.

What are your top THREE haircare lines?

    I wish I could say cool expensive lines…but I can’t. Has to be Batiste, Herbal Essences and Dove (their express treatment is amazing by the way!!)
