The Lipstick League – week of 5.11.15

Question of the Week: What’s your current favorite nail trend?

EauMG’s Answer: I’m so lazy. I haven’t kept up with nail trends. I’m going to say dove gray. Is that a thing? Oh, and gold. I always like gold.

MIKMOI Ao EDP Perfume Review

MIKMOI Ao

MIKMOI Ao is an aquatic floral perfume inspired by the bays and beaches of the Andaman Sea. Ao is one of those new aquatic pedigrees that won’t remind you of anything sold at malls in the 90’s. I love seeing indies newly interpret aquatic and ozonic fragrance genres. Ao is a sheer, veil-like aquatic with tropical fruits and florals that is a lovely olfactory tribute to Thai beaches.

Ao is ripe tropical fruits and tuberose. Salt air and smoky driftwood. When wearing Ao, it’s like being in a different… Continue reading | 6 Comments

April Aromatics Tempted Muse is a perfume inspired by ambrosia, “The Nectar of the Gods”. To me this sounds so serious, like do I really deserve to smell like Gods? (No need to answer that). I do love the idea of an ambrosia fragrance, but when I wear Tempted Muse, I don’t think it’s overly serious. It’s a scrumptious fruity floral that seems more attainable than something only for Gods. It makes me think of the beauty of Central American beaches or like a beach-destined honeymoon… Continue reading | 6 Comments

EauMG’s April 2015 Empties

April 2015 Empties

April was a super busy month and I can’t believe it’s already over. I spent the month moving and in settling in to life on the East Coast. The place is finally starting to look and feel like home.

Well, I bought more than I should have this month in the beauty department. I ran out of skincare, so I repurchased a few items. My skin has been so dry and sensitive, so I had to buy CeraVe products (they really work for me). I also… Continue reading | 2 Comments
