The Lipstick League – Week of 24.6.13

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 1 - 2013

Question of the Week – When it comes to nail care, how often do you moisturize your cuticles? Do you prefer balms, creams or oils to get the job done?

Answer: – It’s the one part of my nailcare routine that suffers the most… I try to oil them when I remember which is usually at the point of polish removal but really… I should be doing it every evening.  My nails are very dry and as a result, prone to peeling.  Must. Try. Harder.  Oh, and oils… definitely oils!

we heart this – How could OCC improve upon their beloved Lip Tar? By adding a see-thru, glossy look to their original “hyper-opacity” formula and launching the Lip Tar Stained Gloss!

Lipglossiping – asks the all important question: Salt or Sugar? Is your exfoliator scrubbing you up the wrong way?

My Beauty Bunny – Too hot and humid to wear foundation? Jen checked out Too Faced’s Tinted Beauty Balm (BB) Cream and found it’s the perfect lightweight alternative for summer.

Nouveau Cheap – If you haven’t seen the Dip-It from Target yet, it could be a game-changer for you (and it’s only $2.50).

Pink Sith – Sometimes you just have to buy a nail polish because, KITTY!

Prime Beauty – has a question for you. Is there a foundation that provides a flawless finish AND substantial sun protection? Why yes, thanks for asking. Avene High Protection Tinted Compact SPF 50.
