Question of the Week: Name the last beauty product that was a failure for you.

lipstickleague - final

Answer: I’ve had a few recently… from the Butter London glitter polish that never was, to the hyaluronic acid serum that smelled suspiciously of cheesy feet.  I even bought a Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Mask for my preggo dry skin that contains Clary Sage so I’m too scared to use it incase it induces premature labour. Sigh.

Chalkboard Nails – Chalkboard Nails shares her swatches of the OPI Muppets Most Wanted collection. These soft shades are great for spring, but do they really say “Muppets?”

Gouldylox Reviews – What do you think of letting your hair go gray? Is it a trendy time to jump on the gray hair bandwagon or would you keep your bottle color no matter what? I need to know!

Lipglossiping – It may be pink, but is theBalm’s latest Cindy-Lou Manizer really the perfect candidate for cool-toned ladies?

My Beauty Bunny – shares her favorite cruelty free Radiant Orchid makeup and nail picks on eBay. Save some cash and shop her collection!

Nouveau Cheap – Squishy jellies, vibrant cremes and fiery shimmers, all in one nail polish collection that costs $6 TOTAL? Yes and yes!

Prime Beauty – has 6 hand creams to keep your dry leathery hands looking smooth and supple with options from drugstore to luxury brands!

Phyrra – Phyrra’s ecstatic for the new Urban Decay Electric Palette! Check out the chaos inducing colors and tutorial!

we heart this – You simply won’t believe this insane amount of pigment and sass is only $6.49!
