The Lipstick League – Week of 6.6.16

Question of the Week: How do you protect your face from the sun? Do you use a moisturizer or foundation with SPF, or do you use a separate sunscreen for facial sun protection?

How is already June? This was compounded by my birthday. The older we get, the more time disorients us.

The Lipstick League – week of 5.30.16

Question of the Week: What’s on your Summer 2016 beauty wish list?

EauMG’s Answer: What isn’t on my list? I’m interested in one of the Jeffree Star Skin Frosts but haven’t decided on a color yet. Just for the packaging, I want Dolce & Gabbana The Sicilian Bronzer. I also wouldn’t mind the rest of the new Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks (Thistle, Squid Ink, Lavender Jam and Whiskey).
