lipstickleague - final

Answer: – Yes!  I’ve been extremely fortunate and have had my makeup done by some very talented professionals.  My favourites have included Cesar Santos for Giorgio Armani and David Scheffen for NARS who both blew me away by teaching me some cheeky little techniques to suit my particular colouring/face shape that I’ve since used to improve my makeup application 100%.

My Beauty Bunny – They say living well is the best revenge – and your nails will be living in style when painted with a polish from NCLA’s Sweet Revenge Collection. Come take a peek!

Nouveau Cheap – Drugstore polishes that look like Vintage Leather on the nail? Yep, and they’re from Maybelline!

Pink Sith – Needs more nail polish like a squirrel needs a can opener, but that didn’t stop her from picking up the latest Urban Decay Nail Polishes in Addiction and Vice.

Prime Beauty – was gobsmacked when she had the opportunity to have her hair styled by big-time British celebrity hairdresser Mark Hill. Mark has crossed the pond and launched his salon professional line in Walgreen’s!

Phyrra – shares the best CC Cream with you; It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Full Coverage Physical SPF 50 CC Cream. And it comes in 5 shades!

Vampy Varnish – shows you the latest and greatest Zoya collection called Cashmeres and Satins for fall 2013.

we heart this – loved the Benefit The Rich is Back palette at $34, but did you know it was just marked down to $24? It’s a beautiful deal!

Beauty Junkies Unite – See which lippies were hits, and those that were misses in the new MAC So Supreme Lipcolor Collection!

Clumps of Mascara – is hosting a giveaway where you could possibly win a $125 Visa gift card. Sounds pretty groovy, huh?

EauMG – is kicking it old-school with this review of an iconic 1980’s fragrance, Jessica McClintock.

Gouldylox Reviews – Want to make your eyes pop? Try this new mascara from Make Up For Ever!

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by My Beauty Bunny – We are constantly in awe of the tips, tricks and tutorials shared by the lovely Christina at Hair Romance. Like this Easy Braided Updo; the perfect solution for any bad hair day!
