EauMG’s 2016 Holiday Gift Guide for Niblings & Teens

Teen Gift Guide

 

HUG your auntie! My holiday gift guides are back! I’m not in the mood; it doesn’t feel very holiday-ish but I’m pushing through. This is an annual tradition on EauMG. Previously I referred to this guide as the “Holiday Gift Guide for Sweet Nieces and Teens” but I wanted to find a word that was more gender neutral or something I could use collectively. I have four nephews and once niece and another nephew on the way. I was told to use the word “nibling”, which… Continue reading | 8 Comments

Ayala Moriel Lost Lagoon Natural Perfume Review

Ayala Moriel Lost Lagoon

Lately I’ve been taking a short break from my usual roses and white florals and wearing chypres. The deal is that I don’t own many chypres so this makes me dig through my samples. I remembered that there was an Ayala Moriel perfume launched this year that I tried in the summer that screamed “MOSS”, Lost Lagoon.

Lost Lagoon opens as a bitter citrus with greens. There’s an aquatic/brine thing going on in the opening. The heart is a green floral chypre. It’s like dry… Continue reading | 3 Comments

The Lipstick League – week of 11.7.16

Question of the Week: Fess up, what did you buy at the Sephora VIB sales?

EauMG’s Answer: Well, if I weren’t broke from having to pay for grad school, I would be participating. And if I already didn’t have a ton of stuff. I was initially planning on buying Tom Ford Orchid Soleil and Mugler Angel Muse. I was also planning on buying staples like Clarisonic Sensitive Brush Heads, some Drunken Elephant skincare and AmorePacific Cushion

Phlur Moab EDP Perfume Review

Phlur Moab

Phlur is a new brand of perfumes located in Austin, Texas. As someone that has been writing a perfume blog since 2008, I’ve tried a lot of brands. Phlur claims to take the “BS out of fragrance buying”. That’s honorable, but what is the BS? I think Perfume People would describe what irks them about the perfume industry differently than someone that is the occasional perfume wearer. When you go to the site, there’s no notes listed. Instead it’s a playlist, lots of pictures of hot young people and… Continue reading | 14 Comments

EauMG’s October 2016 Empties

October 2016 Empties

 

Bye, October.

Here’s the damage I did in October. I bought like $40 of stuff at a Harlem hair supply store. I also bought too much Colourpop because I was on the hunt for the perfect terracotta lipstick. And I found it with Mama .But, I wish more than anything it wasn’t a liquid lip formula. Those are so drying and I’m over them. Why do they keep making all the cool colors in these inferior formulas?!

I had this weird pumpkin… Continue reading | 12 Comments
