The Lipstick League – week of 08.10.12

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 13 - 2012

Question of the Week: – What product makes you happy each time you use it?

Answer:- Perfume. Any perfume. Instant mood lifter, even when I don’t have time to put makeup on in the morning a quick spritz of scent will always make me smile.

 

Vampy Varnish – Loves the new nail lacquers in the Zoya Winter/Holiday collection!

we heart this – takes a swatch-happy look, and embraces, their latest Vice (via enablers Urban Decay).

Beauty Junkies Unite – The name is Bond…James Bond! See the review and swatches of the new OPI Skyfall Collection for holiday 2012, inspired by 007 himself.

EauMG – Food & Fragrance: Victoria visited The Northwest Chocolate Festival. Here’s her “perfume pairings” for her favorite chocolates at the show.

Lipglossiping – gets spicy with Clinique’s new Chubby Stick Intense in Chunkiest Chili. It’s certainly chunky, but is it as pigmented as they promise?
