Congratulations to our very own Brittany of Clumps of Mascara who gave birth to a beautiful baby girl this week! She’s already following in her mama’s fabulous footsteps (check out the adorable cosmetic case that was awaiting her arrival!).
Lipstick League Question of the Week:
Is there a beauty brand that has very rarely, if ever, failed you? If so, enlighten us and tell us why you think their products work so well for you.
G's answer: Maybelline concealers never let me down, and I can't really explain why. I've tried concealers from every brand at the drugstore and I always go back to Maybelline. There must be a magical combination of ingredients that Maybelline puts into their concealer formulas that just really works for my particular skin. I've had great success with their Dream Mousse Concealer (RIP), Mineral Power Concealer, SuperStay concealer (my Holy Grail) and also Age Rewind, which I've been using quite a bit lately (I love the Brightener). I have the Dream Lumi Concealer in my "to test" bin right now, and I'm hoping that one performs well for me too.
