Question of the Week: What color do you have on your nails right now?

lipstickleague - final

Answer: My nails are completely bare right now… they’ve gotten so dry recently that I’ve been forced to grin and bear a little bit of nail rehab in the form of much cuticle-moisturising and TLC.  I’d like to say that it’s helping to solve the problem… but I fear that it might take nothing short of a blowtorch to fix my poorly talons.

Question of the Week: What is your all-time favorite drugstore lipstick?

lipstickleague - final

Answer:  Oh boy.  Hardest question ever.  Can I name a range of lipsticks rather than just a single shade?  My favourite drugstore line of lipsticks is the Revlon Super Lustrous, the brand never stop producing fantastic shades in formulas that have stood the test of time.  When you think about many of the high-street classic shades, it’s the Revlon Super Lustrous range behind them: Cherries in the Snow, Black Cherry, Pink in the Afternoon, Fire & Ice.  That’s a lot of good lipsticks from one line-up.

A lot of my favourites have long-been discontinued but because of their mass-availability, I’m still able to grab them on eBay more often than not… greats like: Strawberry Suede, Pink Velvet, and Raspberry Bite.  Oh, I do love this range with all my heart, you can see why I can’t just pick one!

Clumps of Mascara – is all over this fantastic concealer from IMAN Cosmetics. It goes from a powder to a creme. It’s magic!

EauMG – shares a list of perfume names that make her feel sad. But, hopefully this post will leave you feeling glad.

Nouveau Cheap – swatches what might possibly be the most beautiful drugstore blushes she’s ever seen.

Pink Sith – imagines that a Samurai Princess would fall in love with Tatcha’s Indigo Soothing Silk Body Care Line while still being incredibly badass on the battlefield!

Question of the Week: On average, how often do you make impulse beauty purchases? What type of product is your biggest weakness?

lipstickleague - final

Answer: I’d say that about 30/70 of my purchases are an impulse/considered split.  There’s nothing quite like the anticipation of spying a product on counter and getting it into your hot little hands within 5-minutes of that first look but I know that I’m far, far more likely to be disappointed by those impulse naggings than I am something that I’ve researched to the hilt.  I almost always buy my considered purchases online too… usually because I buy them after doing my research through blogs and makeupalley etc!

My biggest impulse-weakness has to be for lip products and nail polishes… mostly because they’re less likely to disappoint than something like an impulse-bought foundation.

Clumps of Mascara has found the best nail polish top coat ever. No really, it’s pretty incredible.

EauMG – is kicking off festival season with a review an indie fruity-floral perfume roll-on that reminds her of hip Southern music festivals.

Nouveau Cheap – There’s a new collection of jelly polishes now hitting drugstores! Come check out the Sally Hansen Limited Edition Palm Beach Jellies.

Pink Sith – gives you her top 10 wish list beauty items for Pantone’s Color of the year in Radiant Orchid!

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?”

EauMG – has put together a guide to the best smelling hair products. If you could create your own “dream” scented hair product, what would it smell like?

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!

Question of the Week: What’s your current favorite cream eyeshadow?

lipstickleague - final

Answer: I’m a bit boring and tend to only wear a variation of cream/beige/neutral across the lids at the minute… so something like Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Shadow Creme in Buttercreme (discontinued), Benefit’s Creaseless Cream in R.S.V.P, or when I’m feeling more adventurous(!)

Question of the Week: Be honest: How long do you go between pedicures?

lipstickleague - final

Answer: You what?  Is this another thing that proves I’m failing at being a well-cared for woman?  I’ve had one pedicure in my life and it left me mentally, emotionally, and almost physically scarred.  I couldn’t wear shoes for three days afterward… well, I bloody had to because I was on holiday in London at the time.  I shudder even now as I think about my poor, bleeding cuticles… seriously, never again.

The closest you’ll get me to a pedicure nowadays is a pair of nail clippers and a pumice stone, I’m done with foot-pampering.

Question of the Week: Is there a makeup application technique that you’ve tried to master, but just can’t seem to conquer?

lipstickleague - final

Answer: I’m still not particularly consistent with my eyeliner flicks!  I have a theory that just as I get used to the angles needed to create even flicks on my oddly-hooded eyes, one eyelid decides to droop another millimetre… throwing me off.

Pink Sith – is positively blushing at the name of the NARS Blush called “Sex Fantasy”. Not that she’s a prude or anything.

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 2 - 2014

Question of the Week: Name the most expensive and inexpensive products in your current daily makeup routine.

lipstickleague - final

Answer: That’s hard to answer because I chop and change my cosmetics daily.  So, I’m gonna cheat and change the question from “makeup routine” to “beauty routine”.  The most expensive would be my perfume, the Liz Earle Botanical Essence No15 which I’m completely stuck on at the moment… and I suppose my most inexpensive would be my choice of night cream, Eucerin Even Brighter Night Cream, which at under £20, is pretty affordable for a targeted piece of skincare.

Question of the Week: Do you color your hair? If so, do you do it yourself or do you get it professionally colored? If you do it yourself, what are some of your favorite brands?

lipstickleague - final

Answer: I always do it myself, the Superdrug own range of semi-permanents are my favorite, but I tend to go one or two shades lighter than the result I want.  I use their “light brown” shade which gives me a nice ashy, not-too-dark brown result.

My Beauty Bunny – On a diet? No worries! Get your chocolate fix from the new Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette! With a mix of highly-pigmented colors in both matte and shimmer finishes it’s my new fave palette!

Nouveau Cheap – It’s been a while since a drugstore blush has truly rocked my world, but this one is so amazing that I almost want to keep it to myself (but of course I won’t).

Pink SithPantone’s color of the year is a hard to define fuchsia-purple-lavender hybrid. Whatever it is, it’s called Radiant Orchid and you have so many choices for beauty and accessories!

Prime Beauty – Can’t think of a better combination than hot chocolate and makeup and that’s exactly what Too Faced has done in their Haute Chocolate Collection. See which confection you like best!

Phyrra – shares the best from NARS Spring 2014 and the Final Cut Collections.

we heart this – our favorite 13 products of 2013 range in price from $3.99 to $415. We are equal opportunity beauty junkies!
