The Lipstick League – Week of 7.14.14

Question of the Week: Your friend borrows your makeup and returns it in awful condition. What do you do?

EauMG’s Answer: I’m the type of friend that won’t let you borrow my makeup. Sorry.

Lili Bermuda South Water & Fresh Water EDT Perfume Reviews

Lili Bermuda South Water

Lili Bermuda is one of those overlooked brands in the perfume world and I don’t know why. The house offers some great scents and they’re rather affordable.

South Water – Includes notes of coconut milk, guava and sea salt. Launched 2009. PERFUMER – David Bothello
