The Lipstick League – Week of 8.4.2013

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 14 - 2013

Question of the Week: Imagine there is some calamity and all makeup production ceases. You only have what is left in your stash. What kind of makeup will you run out of first and what kind of makeup will you run out of last?

Answer – I will never run out of red lipstick, I have far too many for one woman and it makes me feel all sorts of guilty at the pure excess when I look at my collection.  The first thing I would run out of would be my Illamasqua eyebrow powder, I don’t buy backups, I only like one shade and I use it everyday.

we heart this – we’re not pastel kind of girls, but the China Glaze Avant Garden launch of Pastel Petals is making us feel a bit flower child-y.

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Beauty Junkies Unite – My favorite style blogger, Sydne Summer has THE BEST style blog around! I love the series guide she’s doing on trends from A-Z, and this week she explores the letter “G”, for green. See how to pop this color of the year into your wardrobe seamlessly.
