The Lipstick League – Week of 29.04.13

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 5 - 2013

Question of the Week – When it comes to lipstick, what’s your go-to finish (shimmer, creme, satin, matte, etc.) and why are you drawn to that particular finish?

Answer: – I don’t have a go-to finish. If I like the lipstick, I like the lipstick. The first thing that draws me in is the colour.  I’m an uncomplicated woman! (mostly).

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Gouldylox Reviews – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I love Hair Romance. Although I don’t know Christina, her blog is one of my all time favorites. Almost everything I’ve learned about long hair styling (in the one year I’ve had hair long enough to work with), I’ve learned from her. Did I mention I like this blog?

Do you have a preferred lipstick finish?

    I really love the look of lipgloss, but cannot stand the feel of it.

    I usually wear a matte lipstick as a base and then a creme or sheer lipstick over it. That way, it really stays on and still has that ‘glossy’ look.
